"Bob was a guy that started as a strictly tough guy but made himself a player," former Toronto maple Leafs enforcer Wendel Clark told Canadian Press. "Off the ice, everything was a whole different story. He was one of the good guys and he'd do anything for anybody."

Probert was charged several times with driving under the influence while playing for Detroit. He also was caught trying to carry cocaine from Canada into the U.S. in 1989 and served a six-month federal prison sentence.

He was placed on inactive status for the 1994-95 season after he was involved in a motorcycle accident and tests showed alcohol and cocaine in his system.


He sounds like a real nice guy. *eyeroll*

OK Chris. Now that we have practiced kissing and cuddling, we'll practice eating out...at a fancy restaurant.

yeah i remember watching that fight, one of the best alltime fights imo. i actually think that was an espn game when they still carried the nhl and weren't only concerned with what time lebron is going to take a shit today.

That's one of the best all-time? Right. More announcer hype than action.

They didn't do fuck all for the first half and then they were dog tired near the end.

Fuck all?  What the hell is that?  Englishmen say that.  Thought you were Canadian Oat.  Pick one already! 

I enjoyed that little Probert top 5 clip.   4 thru 1 were really good.  Just seemed like that McSorley fight lasted forever.  That makes it a good one in my opinion. 

And no wonder the dude fought so good.  All those cocaine allegations and a Federal conviction.  Christ.  Half the people on this site could fight like that on blow.
