It didn't take long for executives from Chomutov and Liberec of the Czech Extraliga to condemn the racist chants directed at Wayne Simmonds after he was involved in a fight on Sunday.

As we noted earlier, Simmonds' Liberec team was visiting Chomutov when a number of fans began chanting "opice" ("monkey" in English) toward the 24-year-old Philadelphia Flyers forward.

Simmonds has been down this road before and so has his agent, Eustace King of O2K Management. King spoke out last year when a banana peel was hurled toward Simmonds during a preseason game and he spoke with Puck Daddy Monday afternoon about this latest incident involving his client.
