Holy Shit is Bertuzzi Fucked!

He's their legal expert:


Look at this ESPN.com's Lester Munson's onion on his case and something that I didn't know about:

bq. Dash ordered Adair and the other lawyers to submit the agreement to him for inspection; and, in a 24-page written opinion issued a month ago, he revealed that the agreement was a "proportional sharing" device that would result in the team and Crawford paying agreed-upon percentages of the damages that Moore ultimately will collect from Bertuzzi. In the opinion, the judge did not specify the agreed percentages.

The attempt by Bertuzzi and his attorney to manipulate the litigation with a secret agreement with Crawford and the team is a courthouse equivalent of the Bertuzzi cheap shot that leveled Moore. And it still isn't over. Despite his precarious ethical position, Adair, the attorney who engineered the maneuver, is considering an appeal, a process that will delay the trial that is now scheduled for September. Adair did not respond to emails and voicemails from ESPN.com.

For the sports industry and the NFL, the lesson from this experience goes beyond the obvious and the simple. Any deliberate attack on a specific opponent for any reason is unacceptable. But in addition to the obvious problems, it can metastasize in ways that no one could foresee. In the Moore-Bertuzzi bounty, a cheap shot on the ice leads to a cheap shot in the courthouse; and eight years later, the incident and the unresolved litigation remain an embarrassing stain upon the league and the industry.

Just quoting the parts that absolutely fucks the canuck's, Crawford, and Bertuzzi. I now hope Moore gets at least 30 million. Fuckers.
