#2200544 The Real Osgood Question

Posted by 55fan on 23 July 2011 - 08:46 AM

Is he as good as or better than Sawchuck?

This is a valid question, and one I've been pondering since discussion came up about this.

If it is agreed that Osgood is better, then he belongs up with Terry. If not, I really don't think so.

I can't come to a good conclusion. The eras were different. Terry played with no back-up and through all sorts of pain and injuries and troubles. Terry's life was tragic, as was his death.

All of this makes it hard to have an objective comparison as to which is better, and if Ozzie belongs there.

My heart says yes. My head says no. My stomach says go cook some spaghetti.

#2200541 Draper or Hudler?

About f'in time this poll went the right way! I can't even believe it was this close, let alone tipped the other way this long...

You forgot to factor in the time zones. When the poll came out Mrs. Hudler, Grandma Hudler, and the Russian Hookers were all asleep or working.

Great post. Thanks for putting the time into that reply. :clap:

People get tired of talking about it, but I don't feel people realize what's really going on, and i'm glad you seem to have your "eyes wide open" on the situation. :thumbup:

Not a problem. The aliens beamed it down from the Mothership that fabricated Obama from left-over DNA from their home planet. The government is now in their hands. They want us to question authority so that there will be anarchy. We are doomed.

(I'm just kidding, btw.)

If a player needs rehab, that is a personal problem for the player and is none of our business. For a normal, average, everyday person, the thought of entering rehab and having family, friends, coworkers, and people in general finding out is tough enough. For someone in the public eye, it is magnified a thousandfold.

Not only do you have your boss, the chatty lady at the next work station, the librarian, and the church ladies looking at you differently, you also have total strangers judging you when they really know nothing about you except for a few sound bites here and there.

It would be much easier for the player to go in anonymously, and then, after having dealt with the original problem, decide how to handle it publicly. The initial outing could be enough to drive a person away from getting needed help.

If you've not been there, you have no idea.

Our "right to know" does not extend to their personal lives. They may be public figures, but they are people too, and their lives and families are far more important than whether we'd opt to have them on our fantasy team.

If they need privacy, they deserve it just like any other person; and being in the public eye, they need it more.

Retiring already. And he still looks like he's twelve.

Ozzie! Ozzie! Ozzie!

#2198959 Things you're hoping to see more of this season.

Kronwalling. Hopefully he uses it sparingly during the season so he doesn't get injured, but lets it rip in the playoffs.

Datsyukian clinics. See also goalie jock straps in the rafters.

Jimmy continuing to improve his rebound control.

C64 teaching E and Abby to stand up for their mates.

Hey! Y'all got any Gray Poop-on?

Sounds fishy to me. There must have been more to that deal- future considerations or something. Swedish fish can't have been the sole item in the trade.

That was a typo, dear. I own your sole. I have quite the massive shoe collection.

When you have a "c" and an "l" together, they look like a "d". The subtitle of this thread always makes me do a double-take.

You may + me now.

Just in time to help out with the debt situation. Make a trade with China for "future considerations" :cool: Kenny can do it!

Why not? We'll give them the money other nations owe us, the losing presidential candidates for the next 5 elections, Hudler, Justin Beiber, and "future considerations".

What the heck. Let's give them ALL of the presidential candidates!

Get'er done, Kenny! :thumbup:

#2197804 Backup Goalie?

Posted by 55fan on 11 July 2011 - 09:44 AM

I voted Oz, but I was really torn between him and Conk. Heart says Oz, but Conk will be fine. Brain says Conk, but Oz will be fine.

I guess whatever happens, I will be a little happy and a little sad.

Nope, it wasn't an error in judgment. I think it's you guys who are blowing it out of proportion.

Ok, then. I guess if you intended it, then there isn't a whole lot I can say on your behalf. I was giving you the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps it would be best to let this go.
