#2035962 Bert shows some snarl

Posted by 55fan on 23 September 2010 - 03:57 PM

Bert doesn't have to worry about another Moore incident here. None of the other Wings will jump on whomever Bert fights after the guy is down.

Good for Bert standing up for Mule. Hopefully that sense of "brotherhood" is contagious.

#2035955 Bad Rep Immunity Thread

Posted by 55fan on 23 September 2010 - 03:44 PM

Bring back the negs! There's no point in having an immunity thread if there is no place where you're not immune.

Some posts are so idiotic that the only rational response is a neg.

Negs are the mainstay of our survival and the backbone of our society (as long as they aren't used against me personally, in which case they violate my right to Freedom of Speech, which I interpret as "I am able to say absolutely anything I want and no one can disagree with me and/or point out any fallacies and/or have a different opinion or they are violating my right and since I interpret it that way, it must be that way or it violates my right").

Zetterberg has a funny nose.

actually it's much more entertaining to have people respond to you instead of simply giving you a neg vote.

if by "many", you mean a few message board posters that have a habit of over-valuing their team's lesser players...then i guess you're right.

Yeah. That's why I threw you a bone. I know you're probably getting one since someone responded to you.

By "many" I mean those who appreciate a guy who blocks shots, fights when no one else is willing (even if it's not his forte), and those who are aware that he won last year's "sexiest Wing" contest.

I didn't say that all of the reasons that he'd be missed were valid, just that many people would miss him.

Hockey is actually kind of boring. I just watch because the players are so sexy.

see ya, andreas. you won't be missed.

I bet you cried the day that they took the negative option away from the ratings. Such posts as yours cry for that sort of attention, and now we find ourselves with little recourse other than to either ignore you or actually waste bandwidth in responding.

I'll throw the bone today because I'm bored. Lilja will be missed. I'm not saying Salei won't do a good job; I'm sure he will. But rest assured, Lilja will be missed by many.

Thanks for reminding us that you're still with us.

All those foreigners should go back to their own continent and leave the hockey jobs for good, tough, NORTH AMERICAN boys (and girls- Cammi Granato should have been in the NHL).

Also interesting that they can't make rude/threatening gestures. :rolleyes:

His shot is that good? Should've kept him around then...

Not really. He was aiming at Samuelsson.

Yay for nepotism! Not saying that the kid isn't good, and there may not have even been anything fishy going on behind the scenes, but the whole thing just looks bad, like daddy got him on the time.

He also has an unfortunate last name. Not very good for the jersey sales :hehe:

Hey, if Satan sold big, no reason why Hymen can't. It's not like the poor kid was named Pansy or ***** or something like that.

He is the Pain Train. Hopefully he will remember us when we play against him, and not hurt us too badly.

Best of luck to him and his family.

#2033625 Parents sue because kids suck at hockey

I hope the "settlement" is something along the lines of "The boys' coaches next year agree to be more caring and involved, and to provide positive, esteem-enhancing feedback. In return, the boys will enroll in figure skating and will not steal the girls' costumes for their own use, even if the panties are prettier."

Didn't Drake once send Lebda to the hospital, or was that just a best-case scenario I thought up once? If so, it didn't ruin their chances of winning a Cup together.

#2033281 NHL preparing for work stoppage with refs

Posted by 55fan on 14 September 2010 - 01:58 PM

My family always taught me not to cross the picket line, but in this case I'd make an exception. The league has to play on, plus the refs are incompetent and most should be fired anyway.

Don't worry about it. They wouldn't know if you crossed the line anyway. One might think you did, but the two who were further away might overrule him, and with the video judges on strike too, no one would know for sure.

Even if they did come to a consensus or call Toronto, you could just tell them that you had an afternoon of yardwork planned, but went to the game instead since your gas can was empty, and since you intended to blow (leaf or snow, depending on the weather) the point is moot and you did not cross the line regardless of where you ended up.

#2032556 Remembering Patriot Day

Posted by 55fan on 11 September 2010 - 11:19 AM

Continuing condolences to the people who lost friends and family.

Things like this should bring us all together as humans, but they are instead tearing us into factions.

Let's remember that it was a small group of radicals who did this and should be the ones to pay. I hope that their supporters do pay dearly.

#2032540 Question about training camp roster

Posted by 55fan on 11 September 2010 - 09:31 AM

Boys have thingys and girls don't

Oh, sure. Give away all of our secrets.

Once they are out of the college (NCAA) program, they can come to camp and/or join the team. Of course, they can just drop out of college and play if they want to. I'm thinking that's what Abby did.
