In dealing with a severely addicted person, you get more with a kind word and a gun than you get with a kind word.

In the past I've mentioned I have experience with addictions in my immediate family. A drunk or addict will say ANYTHING to fool a person to get exactly what they want. It's sad but true. Addiction is a form of mental illness. AB doesn't want help then all the hope in the world won't be enough. At the same time, we aren't medical professionals. We can't make a diagnosis based on a 10 minute video & a couple of interviews thrown in.

Try telling an alcoholic or drug addict they can't do something until they get help when they don't want to. You'll be waiting a long time. 

Don't enable an addict by giving them the means to remain an addict.   Giving this guy more chances in the league won't ever help him out.

It's a double edged sword. Denial & lack of trust on both sides. It's tough on everyone involved. And things sometimes don't go the way they should. Words & actions. A lot of hurt.

We watched two quarters of the Nickelodeon broadcast. A heck of a lot of fun. Analysis was non-existent but my youngest enjoyed it. 

I don't think they could replicate this with TSN but I wish they could. It would add another dimension to the game for kids.

Anything to get the younger generation involved. 

The only thing I wish the would do is spend more time explaining the game. Explaining why they make certain calls and how the derense is structured. It would go a long way to helping explain the game to the next generation.

So AB has come and stipulated there is nothing wrong with his mental health.

You don't joke about people's mental health challenges period however I ask those who have criticized others who have not shamed his mental health issues but have criticized his antics, now what?

Nothing you can do about AB until he realizes he has a problem and needs help. His antics have been documented for years. He's self-destructive and needs some intervention. Won't help though, until he's sees it himself. I don't expect him to see it, though, and I worry for his (and those around him's) safety and wellbeing.
