#2675446 Boudreau to Minnesota

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 09 May 2016 - 06:06 AM

Exactly...they should bring up a coach from the minors. That worked well for us.

 

It's been one year for crying out loud.  Give the guy a break.  I'm not going to judge him based on one year.  We made it to the playoffs didn't we?  How long has Beaudreau been coaching?

Late jockey change at Churchill Downs: The owner has decided it's best if Nyquist gets ridden by Wings fans just like at JLA.

There are plenty of sites out there with this information, none quite as good as capgeek (RIP)... but the one I currently use is generalfanager.com.

the overreaction to this is quite hilarious

 

can't imagine what the reaction would be if an actual fraud company like amway got the naming rights. heck, there should be more hatred towards airline companies and banks. these companies have been ripping people off for years

 

little ceaser's has been associated with hockey in michigan for decades all the way back to the 70's with the start of the little ceaser's amateur league. Little Cesar's has done more to promote and devleop hockey in this area than any other company

 

it's a shame people are using something so petty such as their dislike of the pizza as the reason why the arena shouldn't be named after little Ceaser's

1) the Skankees also charge more than an average mortgage to take your family to a game. They don't need the revenue.

2) Corporate naming rights are the norm, and it could have been worse.

3) It doesn't matter what they call it, if the team is good it will be packed, of the team sucks it will be empty.

#2674460 LGW Moderator Problems

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 29 April 2016 - 12:55 PM

When it's 4+ pages of team bashing and complete nonsense, absolutely. Directly from the forum rules. 
 
· DO post constructively. If you can't add anything meaningful to a discussion, don't bother.
 
While we have the small handful of posters here that seem to have issues with how things are handled, I guarantee you we have a much bigger concern from posters that think we are entirely too lenient and have expressed to us in PM about leaving this site because of how toxic the GDT becomes, and how X poster is entirely too argumentative and aggressive in their posting style and no longer want to be involved with this community due to these people. Its a two way road, but the majority that send us messages is out of concern about things not being moderated enough and the things we often let slide. If you could only see my PM box and weigh out the positives against the negatives, it may give you a better perspective. 
 
A lot of great members, boosters, and moderators have been chased away from this site from a few of the same very people that are critical of the moderation staff that generally find their way out eventually anyway. The minority of the community feels like the moderators are pushing people away, but the majority feels it is the aggressive and confrontational posters. This is a fact that any member of the staff here would easily back me up on, including Matt. 
 
So I support what the staff does, if threatening to close a GDT after receiving a handful of reports about how out of hand it is getting in the thread to level things out and return it back to game discussion instead of post after post of "This team sucks" "F*** this team" "What a joke" is a big concern of yours, in which the GDT was never, nor has it ever been locked in the middle of any game ever on this site, feel free to send a PM to Matt and we can look into overturning that comment in the now entirely irrelevant GDT. 
 
I've said this time and time again, no forum in the history of the internet's existence has ever had a moderation staff that 100% of the community is content with. It's impossible to please everyone in any scenario like this. It really comes down to how much of it really bothers you and if it's that important to you to be a determining factor if you stay here as a part of the community or take your leave. 


SO MUCH THIS. I cannot begin to tell you how turned off I have been by the aggressive negativity. And that's the difference. Constructive criticism? Well thought out critiques of the team? I'm all for it. But the constant BARRAGE of violent negativity and "f*** you if you don't think this is the worst s*** EVAAARRR" attitude to those of us who either are trying to find a silver lining or just DON'T GET THAT FRICKING WORKED UP is *ridiculous*. Some of the people that post here seem to be really miserable, unhappy people. That's not the rest of our faults. So you feel censored? Too bad. Because I feelf****** *assaulted* when I read some of these bulls*** rampages that get away with not only hostility toward the team but frequently sexism, racism, and homophobia to boot.

So you see, it's all about balance. The mods aren't here just to please you. They're here to try and balance what posters like myself want as well.

Will it be amazing watching it on TV and seeing the little Caesar's arena logo on the roof constantly instead of the wings logo


Wait, are they playing the game on the roof now?
