The numbers support my point of view, yes.

Statistical theory does not support your argument, based on the evidence that you've presented.

I am not making a statement about whether your general point may be true. I am, however, stating that the evidence that you've presented violates every possible principle of theoretical statistics, starting with your sampling method and going downhill from there.

(I think that I'll step out of this discussion, since I have little useful to contribute to the actual topic at this point. Sorry, some people can't stand when someone insults their favorite skater; I can't stand when someone misuses statistical theory... :scream: )

All of the messages were important.
I was especially moved by Jeff Buttle.

Rick Mercer did a rant on his TV show that has just been uploaded to youtube:

Jamie gets mentioned at the end. :(

It is almost palpable the pain that Shae Z and Jeff Buttle had even just watching the videos. I can't believe that bullying has such a deep rooted long lasting existence here in this country. Something has to be done!

Love Jeremy Roenick, the tweeter girl, Anabelle and Brad and Kelly Chase's video. The delivered strong heartfelt message.

I'd guess a lot of hockey players might have had their share of bullying others, and I would really like to hear that they admitted it and expressing being shamed for what they did on retrospect, and tell the bullies that it is not cool, and you'll pay for that. But I guess in reality that's far from true. Bully extends to adulthood, getting better but still exists. Shame.
