#2044576 Wisniewski makes obscene gesture towards Avery

Posted by 55fan on 12 October 2010 - 07:25 AM

First off: That was hilarious.
Secondly: That does not belong on tv where kids can see it and emulate it. They have enough problems these days figuring out right from wrong and appropriate from inappropriate. If it was on a show that was rated M (or whatever they call PG-13 or R on tv) that would be fine. You know it's coming. That's why they have the ratings- so people can choose what they want to see and what they want their kids to see.

However, this is hockey, and I don't blame Wisniewski one bit. I blame the tv people. They have multiple camera angles and they choose which ones to air. There's a huge difference between doing something like that on the ice during a game and doing it in an interview or in the direction of a camera.

If the NHL, FCC, IRS, BBQ, WTF or any other arrangement of letters has a problem with it, they should be informing the tv stations and telling whomever is directing it to avoid airing such things.


#2044348 I hate the Ducks

The Ducks would be a perfect model for a balance between skill and grit if their skilled players played with skill.


#2044037 0-2 Penguins has fan in an uproar.

Or murdering their wives and burning down the home with the corpse is in it when Penguins lose a game. Yeah, too bad Red Wings fans don't have that kind of passion :blink:

You expect him to remove the corpse first? Odd.

I'm sure any team could have been used instead of the Penis. It just seems fitting. Ducks would have been funny too.


#2043826 Superimposed ads on the glass

Posted by 55fan on 10 October 2010 - 12:57 PM

god thats such a stupid response. i guess all team related threads should be closed because it doesn't matter what any of us think since we aren't the coach or GM.

Can we please have the minus button back? Now I have to think of something intelligent to say.

Ok, here goes. If FSD is the entity in charge of making the decision, then it would make sense to contact them with feedback. It could make a difference.

Those people that make the bags of chips that sound like they're going to break in a moment's notice have stopped making them the only bag they package their chips in because people have complained.

Start a petition, write letters or organize a protest. Do what you must to change things.

At least they didn't play Chelsea Dagger throughout the whole thing.

Now for the returning Hawks: Um, <psst, Stan, do we have any?>

How y'all doin'?! It's been a while since I' was here (somewhere around June 9th, to be exact)!! :D

Ready to watch that banner (won't be the last one, either) get raised at the UC tonight?!?! :D :D

Enjoy the banner raising. The fourth one is special. Just ask some of our guys.


#2043178 Wings' Datsyuk has fight fans among Blackhawks

Posted by 55fan on 09 October 2010 - 07:03 PM

Translation: Please don't beat me up tonight. :lol:

Really dig that Hossa gave him props though. I remember his fight 2 seasons ago when he wore the Winged Wheel and I felt like he really deserved props for that. He probably was jealous Pav remembered to tie his jersey down and he forgot to :P

I remember that fight. It was the night of my dad's funeral, and I yelled into the kitchen to my mom that Hossa was fighting and she left all my knitting, southern redneck aunts to run in and watch a hockey fight. Then she went back and was all, "Oh, I just don't like it when they fight. I get so worried that one of them will get hurt. We just got that Hossa boy this year. I really like him..." My aunts thought she was nuts.

I don't think that anyone who has played with or against Datsyuk can help but be in awe of him.

#2041911 10/8 GDT: Ducks 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by 55fan on 08 October 2010 - 09:39 AM

Maybe this will add some meaning into my life.

Wings 1 (deflection off a Duck's skate)
Ducks 0

14 goals for the Wings called back. League stands by its officials. Other fans say we're paranoid and have delusions of persecution. The only goal counts because it occurs with less than 20 seconds left in the game and the officials realize they can't let it go to overtime since Babs' glare has already melted the ice to the point where they can barely skate.

Wings win. Ducks cry foul.


#2040424 Could Eaves be put on waivers?

Posted by 55fan on 04 October 2010 - 03:35 PM

I normally try not to get to upset about Ken Holland moves. But waiving Patrick Eaves in order to keep Kirk Maltby up as a 14th forward would be one...

I will not be happy at all if Patrick Eaves is waived.

Maltby will clear waivers, Eaves will not.

This, I think, is the biggest factor.
Malts will be waived over Eaves.

Big man Cooke going for our enforcer. :rolleyes:

I can only hope you are making this up.

Unfortunately, no.

There are other people there so it wasn't entirely this kind of stuff, but this was the stuff that kept me reading.


#2040089 10/3 Pre-season GDT: Pittsburgh Penguins at Red Wings

Posted by 55fan on 03 October 2010 - 05:51 PM

Good thing this is a preseason game.

I've been lurking listening to Pens fans. What a hoot. Topics of conversation include:
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.
Is Modano American or Canadian?
Is Modano married to Carrie Underwood?
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.
Ovechkin is over-rated and will be bottom 6 soon.
Wings are old.
MAJOR discussion over where the Pens play.
Sid is the best and everyone else is just jealous.

It's been a hoot.
Best one: Pens are better than Wings because the Pens have won 4 cups and the Wings only have won 3.
