Bickell’s “Flu” Status *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

A thread on the Ottawa 67s BB is saying that Bickell was not ‘feeling under the weather’ or whatever excuse Killer and Jeff Hunt gave the media for his not playing the other night. (This is what was reported by both the TEAM 1200 and Rogers Television 22’s The Big Bad Sports Show – in fact, a woman called up during the Big Bad Sports Show and specifically asked Hunt why Bickell didn’t play, and Hunt told her that he has “the flu”.)

According to a poster on the BB, he was being sat for missing curfew (link to individual post).

If this is true, why the need to lie? Why not just come out and say it? I mean, it’s not like this hasn’t happened already this season. I’m pretty sure Bickell was sat for abusing team rules before. I’ll have to check back through my old posts . . .

Okay, just checked, and sure enough he was. See this link, which is an interview with Killer after the game where both Todd and Bickell were sat. And this is the link for the game recap of the game where they were both sat, which was a loss in Kingston.

Why lie?
