New Tim Thomas Facebook Comments Ignite New Firestorm

In the middle of a not-so-great hockey streak by the Bruins, and only a couple of weeks away from the trade deadline, Tim Thomas and the media have had another misunderstanding.

After the first Facebook episode, one would think Tim Thomas would stay away from posting things about sensitive topics on the internet where everyone can see it. Instead, Thomas posted another.

This time when asked about it, he doesn’t respond with proper interview edict. See for yourself:

Now that may look bad, but I don’t see how Thomas can be viewed as the bad guy in this situation. He simply posted a status on Facebook, and he made it clear in the interview that he didn’t want to talk about it.

This may get worse, though, if he continues to use Facebook this way. It is going to end, but we don’t know when or how. If the Bruins keep playing the way they are and Thomas continues to have issues with the media, maybe the Bruins would ask him to remove his trade clause and ship him out.

If the Bruins can get back to winning ways, this will all go away. Thomas seems to not want to answer about these things now but at some point he may want to.

For now, maybe the media should simply ask him about hockey. Both Thomas and the Bruins have bigger problems that need attention.

  1. Doesn’t the guy have a right to an opinion?

  2. He does, i think that the media understands that. When you post something like that to the internet as an athlete it will be news. After the first time he said he wouldn’t address those questions it should have ended.
