Felger & Mazz: When Personal Life Crosses Over Into Professional Life
Felger & Massarotti continued the day discussing the recent article about the Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke. The article says that his wife’s sickness may have been the reason Cooke was having issues.
Is having a wife that may be sick enough of a reason to cause a players erratic behavior? Is this story used just to justify his actions from last season?
Cooke said that he is ready to change his style of play. Can we believe him? What about the families of the players that he hurt? What makes their families different from Cooke’s family?
How much of this can be blamed on the Pittsburgh media?
