Jews in the News: Anti-semitism in hockey

Jewish minor league hockey player Jason Bailey, now with the Binghampton Senators, is suing his old team.

According to the complaint, Bailey endured "a barrage of anti-Semitic, offensive and degrading verbal attacks regarding his Jewish faith" from Raymond, head coach of the [Bakersfield] Condors. Raymond, according to the lawsuit, would say, "they (referring to Jews) 'only care about money and who's who.'"[1]

  1. This is extremely insane, especially considering that the owners of the Anaheim Ducks (the Condors are their farm team), the Samueli family, are Jewish.
