#2674186 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Posted by amato on 28 April 2016 - 11:36 AM

Just like their pizza this name is blah.

Just put the name in foil and in the fridge and take it to lunch tomorrow.. It'll be acceptable enough after you reheat it in the microwave.

I don't hate the name, but I don't love it either.  When you have a classic non-corporate arena name for all these years, anything would sound weird though.  It'll get shortened by the fans though.  The official name is the Little Caesars Arena, but everyone will just call it Caesars, which doesn't sound so bad.

I guess we can call it the "Ice Oven".

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)

#2674277 LGW Moderator Problems

If a poster is "too argumentative or aggressive" for somebody's taste then why doesn't that person utilize the 'ignore' feature? Problem solved.


And why would 'team bashing' be against the rules? Perhaps the team deserves bashing...   If you're only going to allow non-negative posts and this team continues it's downward trend, you're not going to have any posters left. Imagine if the fans in Edmonton or Toronto or Buffalo weren't allowed to be negative in any way....


Also, you can quit pretending you want the site to feel like this...


...because you really don't. I can guarantee you that if there were even just twenty people sitting in a bar watching our latest playoff games, you would have heard the phrases "This team sucks" "F*** this team" "What a joke" from multiple people at multiple times. If you don't want to hear or read things like that then you'll either have to watch all the games on the campus of an Ivy League school (where those phrases probably wouldn't be used by some one with a bigger vocabulary that the average LGW contributor) or you can watch the game by yourself.


"This team sucks" or "Errosion again!!!"  is probably people's honest assessment of the situation and I'd rather have that than nothing. At least I'd be able to see if anybody else agrees with me or if they don't. After all, isn't that the point of forming an online community?

I'm not saying I agree or disagree with everything here, but I did want to point out something in your post. You don't hear people say the bolded part about the Red Wings in Detroit. We tend to say things like "godam Smith" or "ugh wtf was that Hank" .. but "this team sucks" is a rarity when it comes to the Detroit Red Wings. And on the few occasions that it has happened I've made sure to tell off the guy ;). I don't take s*** from others about the Red Wings whether they a fan or not and tons of people have that mentality around here. Now the Detroit Lions on the other hand... that's another story. 


And as a season ticket holder I can also guarantee you that no Wings fan speaks poorly of the team in JLA. There was a couple times where they had some boos towards the end of the season losses. But that's as far as it goes. 


So yeah in the bar setting the negativity is always there which I agree with you. But at the same time, in a Detroit sports bar watching the Detroit Red Wings? No you won't find very many that take it as far as "THIS TEAM SUCKS"  <--- That only happens on this website and HFboards and Hockeyfights.com

I think it would be awesome if we all switched to that av. I know I'm going to once I get in front of my computer.

#2673715 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

I have to admit it, I didn't think the Blues could do it. The moment they lost Game 6 I said they were toast. This is the tastiest crow I've ever eaten.

Detroit Red Wings continue to be the last team to have won the Cup in back-to-back seasons.

You have one job, Blues.
Just get rid of Chicago.
After that... who cares?
(I call this the "Don't Blow This Haiku")

Very nice
