Holmstrom is one of those guys that other teams fans hate, but they don't hate him because he runs his mouth or he throws cheap shots. They hate Holmstrom because you can hack and whack all you want, but he's still gonna stand in front of the net. They hate Holmstrom because he's a warrior and nothing phases him.

Ritola, Meech, Miller... one of these or two of these are on the outside looking in, if they're going to add a 6th D, they will probably have to move one or two, both helm and abdelkader will get raises, and there is about 2.6 million left after Modano is signed, and kenny probably want 500k for flexibility on short term injuries

Hudler will get every chance to get top6 minutes but I think he'll start on the third line, babcock is after all the coach :cool:

Really he's a great hockey player, if he was a Wing we'd all love him. (period)

I would still dislike him. It's pretty silly of you to tell all of us how we'd feel. You're wrong.

He's a weasel. That's what he is.

#2021314 Canadiens part ways with Big George

Posted by Guest on 01 August 2010 - 04:58 PM

If Big *** George, didn't make people sign contracts before they fight and just immediately hug them I'd be all for trying to get him

Your posts make me laugh for all the wrong reasons.

#2020773 Goal Celebration

I don't know what is more ridiculous; the goal celebration or the "soccer" arguement. :unsure:

should I make some snide remark about how wrong you were or should I just leave it be?

Instead of using some random link to prove your point, how about just admitting you were wrong?

Oh and if you want to use links - how about this one?

Just imagine Holmstrom is having another goal reviewed off of his butt.

haha nice...don't forget the high sticks either on the point shots

I'd love for you to tell me how wrong I am since that link says almost exactly what I said - the full name of the sport is Association Football, and in the 19th century upper class toffs who prefered Rugby started calling it "soccer".

And who +1'd you? Did they even read the link and compare? :doh:

"...in the early days of the sport among the upper echelons of British society, the proper term for the sport was “Soccer”. Not only that, but the sport being referred to as “Soccer” preceded the first recorded instance of it being called by the singular word “Football” by about 18 years. This happening when it became more popular with the middle and lower class. When that happened, the term “Football” gradually began dominating over “Soccer” and the then official name “Association Football”."

thus proving my original point...

To answer your second question, I am assume somebody +1'd me because they found my post entertaining. They didn't get their panties in a bunch because of something said (partly as a joke) on a message board

That would be reason 2589714301293572314123094123894723512893057 I hate SOCCER (notice I put soccer in caps lock because people for some reason say futbol and go out of their way to correct North Americans when they say soccer, even though the game was originally called soccer, but was given the nickname "futbol" by lower class citizens in England)

Mate, get your facts right before you go on an ignorant rant.

The full name of the sport is Association Football. In the 19th century the sport became extremely popular amongst the working class. The upper class preferred to play Rugby Football (aka Rugby Union). They referred to Association Football as "Soccer" as an insult, sneering and looking down their noses as they did so. That's why brits especially get their noses so put out of joint when people start calling it Soccer.

That snobbery still exists today at certain schools, some of which only have a Rugby XV and no football team, or you're not allowed to play for the football team unless you are in the Rugby team.

Toby - you were nearly right.

I think at the 1:30 mark, 2 guys run in, separately, and jiggle a player's "business".

And people think Hudler's "cluck" is weird. He's got nothing on that.

This goal celebration brought to you by UPS! Let us handle your package!
