Niedermayer sent a letter to the 50 members of the Chicago City Council, urging them to fight against efforts to repeal the city's ban on foie gras -- the delicacy from enlarged livers of force-fed ducks and geese.Nice to see a player that not only stands up for his teammates as a captain, but also for those whose his team is named after.
"As an Anaheim Duck, I hate to see real ducks tortured so that a handful of wealthy chefs can serve their diseased organs," wrote Niedermayer, the playoffs MVP last season. "Please uphold this compassionate law."
Personally, I got nothing against duck abuse. As long as it's confined to the on-ice NHL variety.
