Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds continues to impress with each passing season. Several players on the team have been very public about how well he has been able to light a fire under the team.
Once again taking things further than they needed to and assuming every black man is dangerous, police have arrested Simmonds for arson.
“It’s a figure of speech,” yelled Simmonds as he was loaded into his prison cell. “Lighting a fire under someone means you are helping them get better.”
Simmonds is being held in a local county jail until his trial begins. Many are under the impression that since Simmonds is black he could potentially face a lifetime ban from the NHL. It all depends on how well traditionally close-minded hockey fans accept the cliches that describe him.
