Folks, I've got a what would you do situation, especially say if you're at least in your late 40s, like me. It's a long read, but I think detail makes in more understandable. For almost 22 years around Seattle, there's just this one player who while really good talent wise, has been nothing but an harasser, bully and maybe even racist (has called me a slur on the ice, even though it was 20 years ago and said he agrees with Muslim Bans and the Wall.) towards me. It seemed to be tempered enough, for a little while, even though I still couldn't trust him as far as I could throw him until about 6 weeks ago when after an errant shot on my part he said "I will ***** kill you!", while I didn't literally take that at the time, I thought it was still disrespectful enough, to report to the rink afterwards. At 1st I wasn't going to until others encouraged it. Later on, he only doubled down (example, "you got a big mouth", "how hard is it to hit an open net", we were playing posts) instead of apologizing like the rink asked. Finally after being challenged to a fight by the sucker, I reached out on email to him to, in summary, agree to disagree and leave each other alone. Even though he's the one who's been doing all the bullying (I admit I haven't taken it lying down but I certainly have tired to ignore and only participated when he clearly started it), he wrote back "leave me alone or I will call my attorney". So what to do? I think fighting in drop in hockey is stupid but really stupid if you've reached a certain age. I could involve the rinks more into trying to stop his stuff, but then they may look at me as a problem and mess with me. I don't know how the laws are in Canada with this but, the only other 3rd option I've thought of is a restraining order. I don't think that could apply though if I willingly play in a game where he's at, however, it could carry some weight into him totally leaving me alone on the ice. Except for reasonable stuff that happens during plays. Again fighting is for me almost no option, but unless I just quit, I may not have a choice and what if I lost? He's passed the over 45 mark himself and I think that would be embarrassing to participate in a fight with another 45 or over player, even if I "won". Thanks for reading.
