  1. I'm coming back to this thread because this is exactly what is happening. Today is my last post and visit here, I was singled out by a couple of your social justice veterans and Vladdy moderator arbitrarily picked what to delete and when, resulting in my looking like a jerk and him refusing to delete the posts that started it, even after I asked 3 times. I am leaving because you mods are trying to run a kiddy daycare, I've never seen so much butt hurt in one forum, and so many posts deleted because of it. I tried coming back after the last fiasco but nothing has changed. So yes Harold, unfortunately, I am leaving because of the mods. Thanks for the memories, and Let's Go Red Wings. bye...
  2. Not cool mods, if you're going to delete my comments and make me look like the bad guy here, then delete all the comments. I responded civily and respectfully, if you delete my comments, then they all must go.
  3. What? I took the position that no one knows what the facts are, and our personal bias will in the meantime fill in the blanks as to what we 'think' happened. That is called having an open mind before the actual trial starts where they present the facts. It seems that you have already assumed Kane is guilty, and that anything anyone says contrary is messed up to you. That, my friend is your bias, and exactly what I am referring to.
  4. Unfortunately, there is no official 'story' to go by at the moment. As such, our biases will play a factor in these discussions until all the facts are presented to the grand jury. Until then this is all we can go by as our biases both result in a different version of 'the story'.
  5. Or, as it has been noted, she hovered over Kane for several hours at the club, repulsing other girls who got close, witness reports state she was going home with him as was her agressive intention. Spending several hours in a club, then ride home, it could have easily happened there.
  6. Oops, sorry, you're right. I'm getting all my Kings criminal critters confused.
  7. Not a bad time to file a grievance on a suspected wife beater when the NHL is dealing with a suspect rape case. "We'll just put this right there and slowly back away..." NHLPA lawyers...
  8. Ok, Danny Cleary is now my favorite player.
  9. I particularily dislike the yellow color. The point in this is why would you continue to give something money that upsets you? Regardless of what my reasons are, they are my reasons, just like you may have your reasons to continue giving someone money even though they may disrespect you every single day. Of course my measely financial withdrawl won't impact the $5 billion Illitch empire, but I like most Americans have a finite amount of resources, and picking several hockey games to go to a year can translate into a small vacation for the family out of the country. So like the saying goes, I vote with my pocketbook. And in this case the other guy votes to take his family to Big Bear this year instead of several hockey games. When the NHL continually calls hockey, "a product" (and I hate that), then when they stick a product in your face that you don't like, do you buy it out of blind loyalty or do you refuse it if it stinks like runny poopies?
  10. Why? In today's world the best way to get someones attention is through the pocket book. Don't like what someone is promoting? Stop giving them money, it's my hard earned money, "you Joe Schmo business owner have made a decision that upsets me, I will refuse to continue supporting your shenanigans until you change them". I boycotted the league after the lockout for several months, no games, no reading or discussing...nothing, but ultimately brokedown because I'm a hockey junkie.
  11. You probably highly disagree with his wiki page then: "Nill's unique ability to pull off the blockbuster trade has been attributed to a Jedi-like wiggle of his trademark mustache, nicknamed "Monty." LOL, last sentance...oh wiki, you source of quasi-accurate information. Personally I think he's made some great free signings and has given Dallas some legitamacy as a team. Last year they were 2nd in team scoring but sucked on the back end, so he signs Niemi, Odoya to help out and brings in Sharp on the 2nd line. Dallas BlackHawks anyone? This team is going to rise like Tampa. that's my crystal ball prediction
  12. Your avatar is strengthening mine.

    Although I knew the Wings were pursuing Green I did not think he would come (but hoped he would very much). Ken Holland, you have pulled a green rabbit out of your butt, good job sir. I've been critical of Holland lately, in fact just a few days ago ranted probably like everyone else, so to hear that Green took a term cut to play in Detroit surprised me. Awesome.
  14. Few things, Richards has been known for a few years as a partier of the Cocaine and Ecstasy type. This has followed him from Philly, players on the ice have taunted him, and if McCarty's bio gives any indication (didn't he pop positive for marijuana 30 times in his career and still played?), then Richards has been repeatedly counciled on his situation, and that's probably what Dean Lombardi was referring to last year, about straightening out etc, and that he felt Richards lied to his face. Judging by all of this, that has been swirling around him for several years, we can probably speculate this was not an accident. Makes more sense now this is starting to be a sobriety issue. Regarding Oxy, it is illegal to take across the border period, he would know this. Sounds like a Bob Probert situation that just so happened to be a god-send coincidence to the Kings who already were trying to dump him.
  15. Leave it to TMZ to have the latest scoop in even hockey news: Oxycodone at the border folks: Putting everything into perspective, this is no joke of a drug, and chances are he's an addict. If anyone saw the documentary with Chris Nilan or read about Boogard, looks like another player needs help, seems Oxy is the how they all start. At this point, all I ask, as a fan and a human, is that he gets some help, because he's on a highway to hell with this junk.
