Ducks Named as Defendants in Discrimination Suit

A startling news story across the continental States is the lawsuit filed by former Anaheim Ducks player Jason Bailey alleges he suffered many forms of anti-semitic discrimination while under contract with the southern California based NHL franchise. Baily's claim is that he was buried in the ECHL's Bakersfield Condors and received terrible comments by the coaching staff.
After Bailey complained to management, he was sent to the [AHL} Iowa Chops, where he didn't play either, according to a copy of the lawsuit.
Which again is another slap in the face because as it was first mentioned when the now-defunct AHL team was in it's one and only year in existence, pork chops aren't kosher.
Alex Gilchrist, a spokesman for the Ducks, declined to comment on the suit. A message seeking comment was left for the Condors.
You would think that now in 2011, sports people would be beyond the hateful talk. But with this news story, it's just another example that racism is alive and well.
