Mmmm... Downie

Remember our buddy Tim Clownboy of the Hurricanes, err, River Rats? Check out what he's been up to, via Canes Country:

"The AHL should be looking into a suspension for Albany River Rats captain Tim Conboy, who was assessed a fighting major, instigation and unsportsmanlike minors, a game misconduct for instigating and a game misconduct for "persisting in a fight," following a high-sticking incident and fight with Steve Downie during the Phantoms' 3-0 win Saturday afternoon.

"I’ve never heard of [persisting] in a fight before," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. "The report I got was that [Conboy] bit Downie on the hand. He had blood and teeth marks on his hand."

Here's the video (dude's a friggin' maniac):

pretty funny video. Check out Downie after the fight going to the ref saying 'HE BIT ME!':

Clownboy is nuts. While I don't think it'd fly, I think Downie should sit the next game out pleading rabies.

Chris-Simon-In-The-Making much?
Although I don't think even he'd stoop that low.

anything that involves Steve Downie getting his ass kicked is fine by me. Even if it involes biting. Bet Marv Albert wishes he was calling that game.

The AHL's new slogan: We're the UHL, only with biting.

I'm all for Steve Downie getting his ass kicked. Biting? That's loller. What goes around comes around, Steve. That doesn't mean that Conboy should go around randomly biting people, but fuck Downie.

What's conveniently left out are the fact that Downie started the whole thing by shoving his stick blade in the face of Nick Dodge who -- gasp -- had the nerve to clear Downie from the crease, and 2) that it was Downie who shoved his thumb in Conboy's mouth to try and yank his head sideways during their fight. He is now, always has been and always will be a punk.
