Nashville Predators tough guy Rich Clune collects a lot of penalty minutes. Perhaps he's been using the time to hone his comic chops.
After signing a two-year, $1.7 million contact extension, Clune handwrote a joky list of his unmet demands and posted them on Twitter on Thursday (see below). The funny bits, one of which includes having a statue erected in his honor, are now making the rounds on the Internet.
Clune was assessed the fourth-most penalty minutes last season and second-most major penalties (13). He has battled to overcome alcohol and drug problems, but reporters wanting to ask him about that better check out demand No. 2.
I wasn't going to post this because they were not agreed to by my team. These were my requests for my new contract ok pic.twitter.com/SvpNNcUWkD
