The Chicago Tribune portrayed Philadelphia Flyers’ star defensemanÂ Chris Pronger in a skirt, called him Chrissy and had a headline of “Looks Like Tarzan, Skates Like Jane”.
OlympianÂ Angela Ruggiero was offended for Pronger and for all women hockey players.Â “I’d like to see that editor out on skates. I’ll take them one-on-one on the ice any day,” Ruggiero said. “They obviously have never seen women’s hockey and are living in the dark ages. … Obviously it’s offensive. It’s disappointing more than anything.”
