The Flyers just traded for a convicted rapist.: The Philadelphia Flyers decided they needed to add Billy Tibbetts, minor leaguer/part-time NHLer/goon/rapist/bb-shooter/cop threatener, to fuel there Stanley Cup Playoff run. Actually, he was about the only person in the league they could take back in exchange for the useless Kent Manderville and his bigger contract. People in Philadelphia are disgusted by the move, but the Flyers brass called Tibbetts' rape "consenual sex." Man, do they need to learn some public relations.

I can't believe the Flyers spokesman went on record quoting Tibbetts that the sex was consensual. Sheesh -- are people just supposed to overlook that he pled guilty to rape? The PR flack should've been smart enough to say "no comment."
