Disgruntled hockey fans have started a petition for the removal of NBC Sports Network analyst Mike Milbury that is starting to gain serious traction.
The petition currently has over 5,000 signatures (and counting) from fans who are not fond of Milbury and his role with the network.
According to the petition:
“His rude and demeaning matter has not only made many of the NBCSN Intermission reports significantly less enjoyable but has also caused many of the fans to call for a change, something that NBC has failed to do. Many believe he is a disgrace to the sport of hockey everywhere and he has proved it once again during the 2016 NHL All Star Weekend.
Milbury has said several incredibly disrespectful comments regarding the fan voted captain for the Pacific Division, John Scott. No player no matter what the circumstances should blatantly be made fun of, especially a fan voted player during the All Star Weekend, a weekend said to be for the fans.”
