Bertuzzi Files Suit Against Crawford

Former Vancouver Canuck Todd Bertuzzi has filed legal court papers claiming his former coach, Marc Crawford, should be held personally liable for any legal damages a court might award to former Colorado Avalanche player Steve Moore, whose career ended after Bertuzzi broke his neck during a March 2004 NHL hockey game.

Bertuzzi, now with the Anaheim Ducks, contends Crawford, who now coaches the Los Angeles Kings, "failed to exercise control over and caution his players against physical aggression toward Moore when he knew or ought to have known that this was likely to result in injury to Moore."

Talk about not taking responsibility for his own actions! Granted, it's probably lawyers mostly at play here, Bertuzzi not only committed a cowardly act on the ice, but has committed a huge act of cowardice off the ice as well.
