Bobby Clarke vs. the Lindros Family

In the great tradition of pro athletes' parents unwisely getting involved in their sons and daughters' careers (see: Momma James looking to lay the smack-down on Paul Pierce) Eric Lindros's parents -- as well as Lindros himself -- became involved in a feud with Flyers' GM Bobby Clarke. During the '98-99 season, after their son suffered a series of concussions, Lindros' parents criticized the team's handling of the situation and allegedly tried to dictate what lines he should play on. Lindros became involved as well, and Clarke eventually stripped him of his captain title before trading him to New York in 2001.
