Sutter deserves continued support of the community

Re: Rebels owner, GM/head coach Brent Sutter responds to abuse allegations, Nov. 28.

Count me in favour of supporting Brent Sutter.

Every hockey fan knows how intense Brent can be, but in 20 years of watching Brent, I have never witnessed any abuse of any sort.

I have witnessed an extremely community-minded family man who has supported causes such as minor hockey throughout central Alberta and education support for all players (one might recall when Brent was named parent of the year at one of our high schools).

The Sutter Fund has, under Brent’s and Brian’s management for more than 25 years, supported every known charity in central Alberta, from Ronald McDonald House, to the women’s shelter assisting mothers and children find safe shelter.

This doesn’t sound like a bully or abusive coach to me.

There are many more examples of the Sutter generosity. Any fan in Red Deer would be pleased to endorse the family man Brent is.

Add my voice to those wishing to stand up in support of Brent’s history as a huge community champion.

Ray McBeth, Red Deer
