#2056187 This or That

Posted by 55fan on 02 November 2010 - 06:57 AM

Rotten veggies. For any campaign. Give each candidate one column of newsprint per week to express his views and that's it. No phone calls. No door hangers. No mailbox stuffers. Take all of the wasted money and give it to charity. Take all of the wasted paper out of the landfill. Take all of the wasted volunteer hours and put them to work actually helping people.

Democrat or Republican?

Ozzie admits what Mindfly has been saying all along.

Mindfly's been telling you that Ozzie is "short"? Can I get a transcript of your conversations?

#2054384 Cheerleaders for Canadian NHL team a first

Posted by 55fan on 29 October 2010 - 12:59 AM

What a surprise, an ugly broad bitching about hot cheerleaders. Jealous much? :P


I laughed at the pic. Slush sluts dancing in front of a "crowd"- none of which were actually watching them, and most of whom were women.

To those who don't understand why we care and why we're discussing it:
This is funny stuff. You can't fake this sort of stupidity.

The red wings are old and there bying there cups and they don't have any cute guys like justin beeber and there always winning so they never had to battle thru diversity and there all from places across the ocean like sweeden and finnland and canada so they don't speak any american and they suck and i'm a riter cuz i'm on the internet.

#2049506 Did the wings not practice today?

Posted by 55fan on 20 October 2010 - 08:03 AM

They practiced the Power Play.

No one showed up.

#2047992 Thrashers' Diversity

Posted by 55fan on 16 October 2010 - 08:09 PM

Way to turn a positive into a negative. Get caught up in semantics much?

I think it's safe to assume that Forsberg or Hasek never had to listen to slurs on the ice.

The whole diversity thing just grates on me. I see too many people who judge by colour of skin in a negative way. Just let people be themselves and don't pay attention to their looks- that's what I think.

#2047985 Thrashers' Diversity

Posted by 55fan on 16 October 2010 - 07:35 PM

On our current roster the Wings have...
7 players from Canada
6 players from United States
6 players from Sweden
2 players from Russia
2 players from Czech Republic
1 player from Finland

I would say we have quite a bit of diversity too

They come from different backgrounds and different countries, but they are all white. The Politically Correct crowd (which dictates what everyone should think) does not accept diversity of culture. They only care about the colour of one's skin.

In other words, two people who look different, but have exactly the same upbringing, habits, culture, language, history, and may have been raised next door to each other are "diverse" if they have different skin colours, but two people from opposite ends of the earth who have nothing in common except for skin colour are not.

And we wonder why racism still prevails.

#2047783 We need...

Posted by 55fan on 16 October 2010 - 08:47 AM

We have fans in Canada and in Australia.
We are bi-polar.

I don't mind when people are disappointed in a player or in the team as long as they realize that everyone has bad days, and that sometimes when one person has a bad day it effects everyone on the team. If someone says "so-and-so had a bad game" or "so-and-so has looked like he's injured or something" and they have something to back it up, that's cool.

The ones that salt my cheerios are the ones who complain about a player for not being more than that player is expected to be, or won't give a guy a break if he has a single off game.

The ones I want to smack are the ones who either hate one player or like one so much that they cut down other ones to make theirs look good.

#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.
