    apparently caught chewing tobacco on the team bus... interesting story if in fact that is the reason. wonder how the punishment would be handled given it is considered a banned substance in the OHL

    thought it was quite laughable myself when I first heard it but the fact it is considered a banned substance makes it potentially serious all the same...

    Suddenly, I pine for the days of Keith Hernandez, smoking a cigarette and drinking a beer in the dugout.

    Those were the days!

    this is hilarious and it makes no sence. why would the OHL consider chew a controlled substance anyways. i wouldnt doubt more than half the league chews. did someone from OS turn him in or something or does the league do random checks for stupid little things lol

    I agree that it is a stupid rule, but it is a rule nonetheless. Ryan made a bad choice and got caught.
     
  11. well in Ontario you cant buy any tabacco products unless you are 19. making it illegal to chew and smoke it in a league where the average age range is 16-18. it makes sense. but i dont know how old bobby is, can't be bothered to check, but if you look at the larger picture it makes sense.

    It seems fairly innocent till you look at the facts.. NO. 1 it is a banned substance..( receiving the same status as steriods.).. No.2 In ontario you need to be 19 to buy smokes or chew.. No. 3 He also is the captain of the team and he and his fellow team mate chose to do it on the team bus. I guess no one said he was smart... :dunno:

    Here in Ontario you can smoke cigarettes when you are under 19, you just can't buy them. Strange but true. I would expect better from Bobby Ryan, but maybe the combination of his youth and his feeling of invincibility now that he is the captain and the whole city praises him is the reason why he did it. He probably thought that he could get away with it because of that reason. I still think it is a joke eventhough it is a banned substance. I am sure he won't get suspended by the league and he will be back for the Attacks next game

    He is a star, the OHL needs to learn that Bobby Ryan should be able to get away with whatever he wants.

    In the US it's legal to have it on you if you're under age. Just not buy. A cop can't just come up to you and tell you to put it out or anything say if you didn't have ID. That's the rule I've always seen people go by.

    A dumb, dumb, dumb, stupid rule.

    Kills me seeing 12 year olds smoke and no one being able to do anything about it.


    Anyways...to the topic at hand, good. Just because he's a star doesn't mean he should get away with it. If it's against the rules it's against the rules.
