Laraque not the real issue

Mike Dorn, Los Angeles, Calif.

People are way out of line in their criticism of Georges Laraque.

Why is Laraque forced to apologize for his participation in an advertisement for an alcoholic drink that includes scantily clad women?

Most NHL teams employ scantily clad "ice girls" to remove snow during timeouts.

They also sell us large quantities of over-priced alcohol during games.

Perhaps the real issue is that the NHL is not getting a cut of Laraque's payment.
