    Learn2LuvIt reacted to Dabura in LGW Upkeep   
    Admittedly, not all of my posts are winners. Most probably aren't. I definitely do the low-energy s***posting thing. And maybe that's something I should change, for the betterment of the community. Because it's probably fair to say we've got a bit of a chicken-egg thing going on, where, yeah, maybe the tongue-in-cheek banter is a consequence of there not being many people here...and/or maybe it's *part of the reason why we don't have many people here in the first place*.
    Ultimately, though, I do think it mostly comes down to the Wings sucking. Look at the Blackhawks. No one gave a s*** about them for a long time. Why? Because they were the model of futility. But then they got some great young talent and they started winning and all of a sudden people cared.
    Am I accusing Wings fans of being fairweather fans? I mean, sure, I guess. I'm not even saying it disparagingly. Most fans have limited time on their hands. If the team is garbage and it looks like management and ownership aren't in a huge rush to change things, why should fans -- people with limited time on their hands -- post obsessively about the team on an internet forum every day? The current regulars -- myself included -- are outliers, not the norm.
    I don't want to be defensive about any of this, mostly because I don't feel there's anything I need to be defensive about. But, in my defense (if a defense is called for), I'm doing what I can to get people talking. If people want to talk in decidedly non-spammy ways, there are GDTs, there's a thread devoted to discussing Wings prospects, there's a thread devoted to discussing the 2020 draft, there are multiple threads devoted to discussing the rebuild, there are some threads I've been wanting to make for a while now but haven't because I'm kind of waiting for some other people to organically start those discussions.
    I don't want this to become The Dabura Place. At the risk of coming off as really self-centered, I'll say that there are days where I fear people see this as The Dabura Place, like I'm some egotistical dingus who's just decided to take over these boards and circle jerk with The Boyz. That's really not the case. I don't have very many interesting things to say, but my hope is that if I'm always giving people reasons to post stuff here (that's what I'm trying to do), good things will happen. It's entirely possible that my efforts are misguided. It's entirely possible that my efforts aren't necessarily misguided but my approach misses the mark. I'm open to suggestions. Though, I agree with CRL that "Be the change you want to see" is probably the best attitude right now for each and every one of us.
    Anyway, here's Wonderwall...

    Some say its spam, But it's not, but it is.
    Pick one
    I don't think we have a spam problem at all, unless you're counting the Koreans and the Russians. I think we have a serious problem with the team being absolute suck. Posting is even slow on the Wings HFBoards these days. The diehard Wings fanbase is smaller than most people realize I think. Most stop watching or watch something else when the team is this bad.
    In regards to LGW specifically, I'm at a loss at what to do. People like myself, Dabura, Krsmith, and 91ryans, are in here daily trying to maintain this place. I'm inclined to say be the change you want to see in this instance. If you find any of our personalities abrasive, I'm inclined to say beggars can't be choosers if you don't wanna participate yourself....
    IDK. I'm sure it comes off dickish but I truly mean to be honest. Team needs to better for folks to have interest. In the meantime we can take solace in the fact that we were here in the bad times. True fans through good and bad.

    I don't know that the problem with the Leafs was defensive per say. It's definitely an offense heavy team though...
    It's watching them lose board battle after board battle and lacking any real fight in there game. They totally come off as confused or disinterested at times.
    That's probably to blame on Babs losing the room, and also a team lacking any real role-players.
    2-0 in the Keefe era
    Like many have said, I think Seattle would be a unique opportunity for Babs. He'll have a ton of say in roster selection and can build the team to fit his evil ways.
    However, Seattle seems help bent on being the new, different, progressive, team in the league. So I doubt they go with such an old school jackass lol

    There's also the age factor. Dude's gonna be 36 in March. That's not ancient, but, uh, it ain't exactly young either. I'm guessing his poor play is just a combination of old age and the s*** defense in front of him. Too much for him to overcome on many/most nights.

    I will never speak ill of my Howie, but hhhhhhhhoooooooooooooo boyyyyyyyyyy we are so ill-equiped to deal with a goalie change unless we trade. The goalie market is never very good too.
    Bernier is trash
    Pickard has never been good at the NHL level

    I have a feeling that many, many in this organization are going to feel the wrath of Stevie this season.  By "wrath", I mean gone.  Per this thread, this organization is broken or weak in almost every aspect - top to bottom.  IMO -Stevie is a winner and he won't simply watch this season go down the road it has been going.  I know he's preached patience, and rebuilding "will take time", but if I were with the Wings organization, my head would be on a swivel.  This guy hates to lose, and not only hates to lose, the Wings are embarrassing (for Wings and Wings fans standards)...this just isn't going to fly for long.  I've said it before, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see some major player, coach, and front office moves this year.  Likely some player moves that are surprising as we believed said player was a part of our "core" or future.  More specifically, and not saying I'd be against this move, but many Wings fans I've talked to believe AA is a part of our "core" and future.  Not sure if agree with that but If rumors are true about AA and him having a bit of an attitude and "me first" mentality....HE GONE!

    I think we'll see a pretty significant improvement from this season to next. We might not make the playoffs next season, but I think we'll at least be in the conversation. This season we'll (hopefully)be a bottom three team and actually pick in the top three. Add that player to your 2021 roster, as well as a free agent or two and we'll be in great shape.
    I'm still confident that all of Rasmussen, Veleno, Zadina, Svechnikov and Seider will be significant pieces to the core of this roster. Add a Lafreniere, Byfield, Raymond, Holtz, etc. and we're back!

    LSD night at the LCA according to me:
    Chillin in my seat enjoying the music and lights from the jumbotron
    Players on the ice all swirling together
    Fans cheering and yelling vibrates my entire soul
    Have Little Caesars
    Cheese is meltier than my face
    Finish slice
    Life literally ruined because no more delicious pizza slice
    Look down at pizza box
    I only ate the first slice, THERE'S A WHOLE PIZZA LEFT
    Literally cry from relief and happiness
    Red Wings win by 8 goals
    LSD night at the LCA according to sober friend:
    Pointing cell phone at jumbotron trying to change the channel like a TV remote for the entire 1st period
    Yelling and screaming at random points in the game and during dead time upsetting everyone in our section
    Rubbing hot super slice on my face
    Throw mangled super slice on the ice like its an octopus yelling THERE'S A WHOLE PIZZA LEFT
    There isn't
    Crying from trying to eat my own now sauce covered hands
    Red Wings lose by 5 goals

    Can we at least pretend that we have a slight chance of making the playoffs at least until....December??  We're not even out of October and this looks really bad and hope already lost....this is ugly.  So, it was a great 2019-2020 season for three weeks. 
    Who is under the most pressure in the Wings organization?:  The LCA promotions team.  Can't wait to see what ridiculousness they conjure up to fill seats come February. Free iPhone night??  Celebrating the "Roarin 1920's"??  Roller Skate Night - (fans encourage to attend game wearing roller skates)??  LSD Night??  Celebrating Michigan Marine Life Night??  This will actually be the "game within the game".  This should be fun.
