Failed when it mattered

I'm just going to be blunt: fuck the NHL. 
There's been a few stories recently about teams or players not wearing pride themed equipment for the warmup during team Pride nights because of whatever excuse players want to manufacture. Lot's of "oh well" platitudes from the teams and the league, giving them a pass, but let's be clear: the NHL didn't have the spine to stand up when it mattered most.

There's no allyship when you collapse when the situation is tough. The NHL really just wanted to look good with the LGBTQ+ community, they didn't want to actually support it. They are the epitome of rainbow capitalism. 

Xtra* Magazine has a great article that sums it beautifully: The NHL’s commitment to diversity doesn’t extend to trans people.

So, basically, fuck the NHL. No interest in them anymore.

If you find yourself responding with "not all [fill in the blank]" in a context of discussing hate, violence, and violations of human rights then you're not on the right side of a discussion.
