they say the best way to lose an argument is to overstate it. i agree with the principle that buffalo is an exciting team and that people like the game, but shes just making a fool of herself here.

"the socializing stops the minute the game starts"
"Buffalo is not a city with a team, its a team with a city behind it"

please.

My favorite line: "Do Buffalo fans even know the holidays are here amid all the Sabres celebrations since October?"

Why wouldn't they know? Are they retarded? (Ok that's mean...I take it back...kind of.)

It was written by Kara Yorio so it's automatically bad rolleyes.gif

Kara's been getting WAY too much discussion on LGW the past week and 1/2 , especially for such a brainless twit....

First of all, you're an idiot. Secondly, yeah, what IS wrong with that piece? I've read far worse drivel.

These threads rank up there with the Eklund ones that are titled "Eklund at it again..."

At what again? Doing his job? He discusses trade rumors and happenings around the NHL for his career, whether or not he's right everytime or wrong everytime.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with this article. Nothing.

Moral victories are for losers.

I'm sorry...didn't mean to cause problems.

First, I think it's hilarious that the thread is called Yarka Rorio's latest piece. Second, I felt that this article was just a Buffalo fan talking about her team...which is fine, I guess. But if you're going to be taken seriously you can't be THAT biased. And it wasn't even biased...just too superlative.

Ok, what's so terrible about this article? Is there an overstating of opinion or is she sounding like an arrogant jack***?Doesn't look like it to me, but clearly I'm missing something here.

Look, Yorio's not the best journalist out there IMO. But she's a professional for a reason and she's had to have worked hard and do something right in the past to get this far.

Give the woman a break. She gets almost as bad treatment in here as Lilja or Deveraux sometimes which is pretty silly.

Sometimes I think if Kara Yorio wrote a piece entitled "The Sky Is Blue" there would be LGWers going, "That stupid fool. It's gray sometimes."

I mean, earlier, she writes a piece that's very complimentary toward the Wings and says EXACTLY THE SAME THING that we've been saying for months (Hasek's groin is a potential ticking time bomb) and she gets absolutely blasted for it. 'Cause she didn't bend over and kiss our shiny round asses or something. I swear, if she wrote this piece about the Wings there would be two reactions:

"well i don't normally agree with her but that is a good piece"

OR

"she insulted us she said we didn't know when Christmas was"

Look, the woman isn't the greatest hockey writer around, but it seems like the simple act of putting pen to paper is enough to get her smacked around here. It's getting stupid.

Seriously though, I second this. I don't understand what is so wrong or evil about this person. Was she the class bully in grade school to a bunch of people in here?

I suppose Tunbo Batman would know all about "the best way to lose an argument is to overstate it." This, after all, from the same guy who claimed the bad teams are colluding with each other to make the playoffs and therefore we should get rid of the shootout.
