Steve Moore, three years later

He lives for the here and now, but, at night, alone, he has to stop from drifting into those certain places.

"When I think about playing, it's just like yesterday," Moore said.
Really nice piece by Al — it's hard to believe it's been three years since 'the incident' happened. Imagine what sort of a comeback story it would be if Moore could step on the ice again as a professional.

With all the legal wrangling that's still going on, that unfortunately seems unlikely.

I guess I would just be a huge cynic to suggest that Steve Moore will start feeling much better the day after the lawsuit is settled, and the cheque has cleared the bank. Flame away if you like, but between Moore's comments and those of his oily lawyer, I'm suspicious. None of this excuses Bertuzzi, of course, but it has always struck me that Moore's recovery pace has been very lawyer driven.

I don't know how all the reporters did their research, unless they have an agenda. It was clear to the public that Moore and his family refused to have any direct contact with Bertuzzi after the incident, and they never came out to call Bertuzzi liar when Bertuzzi told the public that Moore refused to talk to him. So, how can a reporter ask whether Moore has received any personal apology, other than the fact the report wants to make Bertuzzi look worse than he already is. Nobody defends Bertuzzi's actions, but I have trouble seeing how people are ignoring the immoral behaviour displayed by Steve Moore:

1) Claiming he's not received any personal apology without mentioning he hasn't allowed any personal contact from Bertuzzi to happen.

2) Claiming the Drury and Karbele hits are dirty, saying that headshots should be banned, while claiming his hit on Naslund (also a headshot) is clean.

3) Keeping his name in the media, every time Bertuzzi's name is in the news (being reinstated, being selected to play in the Olympics, being traded (twice)), when nothing new has happened, only to remind people about his poor life.

I just read another article about Steve Moore. He mentioned how difficult it was that he got hurt in his rookie year and hasn't had any income since then. Am I mistaken, or did he go to Harvard for four years? It seems to me that he needs to start working on getting a job in whatever area his full ride scholarship Harvard education was in. If he wasn't four years at Harvard and only played hockey, he's an idiot.

My edit: If he was at Harvard for four years, didn't finish and only played hockey, he's an idiot.
