#2106046 Ducks Sued for Anti-Semitism by Former Draft Pick

Posted by Nev on 27 January 2011 - 01:47 AM

Really? C'me on now...Lets use this with any other bullied group and see how motivating it is:

Fags are only interested in ass pirating and spreading HIV
N#ggers are only interested in Grand theft auto and watermelon

You get my drift here. Any usage of someone's ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, culture, religion ect in the workplace is off limits. If the guy worked for a fortune 500 company and his boss said this s*** to him, the boss would be fired and the company sued. "Hey Johhny, you little ***, go take your *** ass and get some work done" is not a motivator...Its bullying.

I am tired of making excuses for people that allow others to try and bully or intimidate people that are in the minority. The kid shouldnt be painted as the bad guy here because the incident should not have happened. I know people can say "its hockey...grow some balls" but this type of intolerance is exactly why Iginla, to this day still hears the N word and why people like Theo Fleury do not speak publically of abuse they indured because sport is a culture of intolerance.

I never said I approved of it, I said that is what it might be. And if you think this kind of thing isn't said all the time in proffesional sports (and in the military) you're living in Fantasy Land. I agree that in a normal workplace this kind of thing would get you fired, but the locker room and the barrack room are not normal workplaces. And I guarentee you, Mike Babcock has said things to Redwings players that would get you fired in an ordinary business.

Getting in someones face and screaming obscenties is not acceptable in a normal business - in hockey its a prime motivational technique.

#2096871 Mike Milbury is at it again

I hope we've all learned a valuable lesson from this. Never, ever listen to anything Mike Milbury has to say.

Exception: He's ringing you with a trade offer.

#2094569 Norris turning into "best offensive defenseman"?

NHL.com is good for highlights, 3 articles a day about Crosby, an uh, that's about it.

#2093441 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Murph said it best - blindside hit on a player in a vulnerable position who was unable to protect himself.

#2091944 The Comparison of Helm to Draper

To quote Scotty Bowman, "The safest place on the ice is between the pipes when Kris Draper's on a breakaway"

And I'm getting bored with this "go after the opponent following a clean hit" garbage,

#2074687 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Nev on 09 December 2010 - 01:35 AM

Honest mistake, nothing should come of it.

Hey, even the guy who does promos on Fox Sports Detroit mixes up his Rs and Ws. It sounds like he calls the Red Wings Weekly show "Wed Wings Weekwy" and the network "Fox Sports Detwoit".

Or like Bill Jeanerette calling us "the rings" during a radio commentary a couple of years ago. Now that was a freudian slip :champs:

#2074069 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Nev on 08 December 2010 - 01:49 PM

Sad yes, but given the history of inequality concerning human rights all over our planet it's not surprising. I'm thankful everyday that I live in a country that never condoned or allowed slavery, and I'm glad that the USA is doing everything it can to make up for mistakes of the past. That being said, I'm sure Panger didn't mean to imply anything with his slip up, and I don't think anything will come of this, he may be annoying at times but I doubt he's racist given that he's good buddies with Stevie Y, and The Captain would never be friends with anyone who was like that I'm sure.

Don't be too proud. The only reason that Canada as you know it never participated in slavery is quite simply because it isn't old enough, even if you go as far back as 1867.

You might also want to do some reading on pre-confederation Canada.


Slavery is as old as human history, and I get really hacked off at the modern day PC propaganda that slavery was something that was only done by white europeans to black africans.

#2070240 Bert's role with the team

Posted by Nev on 29 November 2010 - 01:46 AM

As good defensively as Pav & Z are, they've always struggled to shut down the top power forwards - Nash & Getzlaf have always given us fits. If Babcock is turning Bert into a shutdown forward its more proof that he's the best coach in the league.

#2069373 Pronger falls victim to "Avery Rule"

Posted by Nev on 27 November 2010 - 03:43 AM

You are all whining and calling foul ONLY because its Pronger and you all hate him.

I'm confused, you're saying that like its a bad thing? :blink:

Pronger has no grounds for complaint, he should consider that a tiny fraction of payback for the 20 cross-checks he gets away with every game.

Are you questioning Colie? I think you owe him a personal apology Zetts.

#2063628 Banging on the glass at the Joe illegal?

I don't know why anyone would want to sit in rinkside seats anyway...I've done it before, the view is crap and you can smell the players Posted Image

#2061219 Leafs are in 1st place overall!

Posted by Nev on 11 November 2010 - 01:46 AM

I catch the odd Leafs game now and then... aside from the Phaneuf injury, I can't fathom why this team is doing so bad. Is it time to ditch Ron Wilson?

Hanta yo baby.

#2060748 Bettman Moving on?

Posted by Nev on 10 November 2010 - 01:42 AM

No cap works in soccer in europe :thumbup:

No it doesn't.

Man Utd are 800m in debt, Real Madrid & Barcelona are only kept afloat by extorting cheap loans from spanish banks + blackmailing local governments into expensive freebies, coupled with the bizarre spanish accounting laws that allow them to keep operating when in any other country they would be declared bankrupt. The Premier League is the richest league in the world, and almost every club is heavily, heavily in debt.

Oh, and how ironic that Bettman defenders are Penguins/Crosby fans. Says it all really...... :(

#2052780 Tough Guy: Memoir of Bob Probert

Posted by Nev on 26 October 2010 - 08:03 AM

If you go to the Freeps website, they've got 3 sets of extracts there. http://www.freep.com...now-what-I-mean?

Quite frankly, I'm disapointed with what I've read. Very similar to the autobiography of another high-profile sporting legend that I read (George Best ). Full of excuses and self-justification for his destructive, selfish behaviour. I know thats going to be very unpopular and I'm going to be flamed to hell and back for it because he's such a hero to many on here, and a tragically dead hero at that, but there it is. He comes across as totally unapologetic for his off-ice behaviour, and clearly bore chips on his shoulder right to the end towards Demers & the players who despaired at his lack of proffesionalism. I mean, how dare his team-mates get upset that he was out drinking & clubbing during the '89 conference finals....

OK folks, flame away.
