Brad Richards vs. the Summerside Journal-Pioneer

No autographs? Lightning's Richards angry at P.E.I. newspaper | CP

Richards reportedly called the Summerside Journal-Pioneer this week and told staff he would never do another interview with the paper. The Tampa Bay Lightning sniper was apparently upset about an editorial in the paper that chastised him for not signing autographs at a parade and celebration held in his honour earlier in the week.

Reading ove rthe article I can't help but see it as pointed towards putting down Brad as a pompous and arrogant player. He won't sign autographs, he was charging for autographs elsewhere and he talked to the writer of this article via airplane on his way to a golf tournament...

The smear machine is in high gear -- maybe this is payback to Brad for keeping Lord Stanley's Cup from a Canadian team?
