Red Wings' Exec Jim Devellano Gets Fined for Lockout Remarks
Devellano is known for not thinking before he speaks. The Red Wings were reportedly fined $250,000 for his outlandish analogy during a recent press conference: "It’s very complicated and way too much for the average Joe to understand, but having said that, I will tell you this: The owners can basically be viewed as the Ranch, and the players, and me included, are the cattle. The owners own the Ranch and allow the players to eat there. That’s the way it’s always been and that’s the way it will be forever. And the owners simply aren’t going to let a union push them around. It’s not going to happen." (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey)
