The hiring of Bill Peters as head coach of Avtomobilist from Yekaterinburg in the continental hockey League, has not gone unnoticed and his former general manager with the Calgary Flames, Brad Treliving, and wish her all the success in Russia.
The DG of the formation in alberta has seen Peters put his resignation as the chief instructor of the Flames on the 29th of November last as a result of the denunciation made by Akim Aliu, a former player of Peters in the american League. The skater concerned has been the victim of racist comments on the part of the pilot in 2009-2010, when the two men coexisted in the IceHogs of Rockford. And that’s not counting instances of ill-treatment in respect of a player Hurricanes – Michal Jordan – occurred several years later when Peters ran into Caroline.
In spite of everything, Treliving believes that all deserve a second chance in life.
“Bill has made an error. He said. I also know that he will make amends. It is a good coach. Bill is a good person in spite of this odd. I wish him the best, said the leader of the Flames in the newspaper “the Calgary Sun”. I can only speak for myself, but sometimes, it does not perform properly things, and we just hope that the people we forgive.”
This opinion seems shared by Aliu, who had substantially made the same remarks on his Twitter account on Thursday.
“The hockey is for everyone. I think it deserves a second chance, that we are able to find the strength to forgive and that positive change can occur if we work together.”
Improve as a person
As for the main concerned, it was a kind of “mea culpa” at a video conference at which Russian media have attended.
“As time passes, we all grow and we enhance them to become better versions of ourselves. And I’m not different from others, has he said. You learn of all the experiences that you live, and you become better.”
“This is not new at present, he added. We are going through a period full of challenges with this pandemic of sars coronavirus. I believe we will come out stronger from this. Subsequently, the people have progressed. They will be more passionate and understanding of each vis-à-vis the other, while being more patient.”
