1) You've unsurprisingly miscomprehended my post. The point I was trying to make is, if there is already a discussion going on, with deeper ideas being given, then the point of a poll really is moot. This website is not a democracy, and it really doesn't matter imo how many people are on either side of an argument. This DOES NOT mean I don't think people should share their opinions, but rather something such as a pole would be redundant, and bring an unneeded element to an ongoing discussion.


How is a poll redundant?? Tons of people vote on polls that didn't necessarily engage in thread discussion. By your logic, we should just scrap all polls because we can always just discuss things in threads. I wanted a cut and dry, view of the number of fans that would want him. Simple as that. You're logic is laughable kid. You basically said who cares what people I don't know, and who don't make decisions for the Red Wings think. Your words, not mine. Polls are a good way of breaking down the numbers without having to delve real deep into reasons why or why not. That's what polls are.

2)I haven't rated any of your posts negatively, and seeing as we are currently both at -2, that means I have only minus 1 given to by another user, whereas you currently have 2. Not that it matters, or I care, just pointing out a problem you seem to do a lot, making assumptions when you don't really have a good argument.


HAHAHA Wow are you serious with this post? You go out of your way to tally who has more people voting us down and you say you don't care and it doesn't matter to you?? :lol: Yeah right buddy! Who you trying to fool? Cause the only one you're fooling is yourself. Obviously you care or you wouldn't have pointed it out in two different posts. Also, you know you voted my post down. Any suggestion otherwise is a bold faced lie. If anyone has no argument here, it's definitely you. Congrats. Give yourself a hand. :clap: lol

Anyways, unlike you, I actually have a life, so I'm officially done arguing with you and your "logic." Night night little boy.

1) It's moreso out of boredom than real "being down".
2)You do not really have legit beef. This Website Owes or Promises you nothing. You do not pay for anything. Your sense of entitlement is hilarious.
3)Once again you act as if age is relevant to this situation, when it is not at all.
4) The reason you were upset was a poll about how people you will never meet and have no ability to influence an outcome on the subject felt about it. Seeing as there was already a thread that was essentially discusing the exact same thing, I just found your anger comical.

Edit: OH NO GUYS HE KEEPS NEGGING ME! NOT MY INTERNET REPUTATION...



Who cares if it's people that aren't in the Wings front office? I would like to know other people opinions. Hence, anyone being on this particular website. Why are you here if you're just discussing things with people that don't make decisions for the Red Wings?? You make no sense buddy. You've contradicted the whole point of being a member of a forum. :lol:

P.S. Like you didn't rate my posts negatively?? Pshhh yeah right kid. And I only rated one of your posts negatively. So looks like there are other members who think you're a really smart guy. ;)

1) I'm not your kid

2)It's the internet get over it

3) You do not pay a cent for this site. The moderators could very well ban you for no reason at all, and you would still be owed nothing. I really am sorry if you were insanely interested about seeing how much of the LGW posters either agreed or disagreed with the potential signing, but frankly, It doesn't matter, as we are not Holland and free agents aren't signed via LGW Comittee. In the end, it really does nothing, and seeing as there was already a subject on the same issue being discussed, it is understandable that they would merge in. Contrary to your beliefs, the vast majority of this site doesn't want to hear your sobb story, filled with sarcasm and condescending remarks.


You must really be down about that 20 seconds you wasted on reading my post. Especially considering you've now wasted several minutes in replying. Point is, there is a feature in creating polls which you can set to make it just a poll. So there being another Modano thread doesn't mean my poll should have just been deleted. I may have been a tad peeved about it, but I still have a legit beef. You on the other hand, must be one bored little boy to make this much out of my circumstance. Run along now little tyke. It's way past your bedtime.

No, Thank you for wasting around 20 seconds of my life that I lost from reading that post. THANK YOU!


Yeah, cause my legitimate poll being scrapped is perfectly reasonable. Yeah you're right, I should have no beef with that at all. :rolleyes: Get lost kid.

Thanks alot to the brilliant mod who decided to merge my POLL with a current Modano thread. I wanted to see how the numbers broke down with Wings fans wanting him for the right price. But now the poll is long gone. AWESOME. Sheer brilliance there moderator! ;) Ya know, you could have just asked me to lock the poll to prevent comments and just keep it a poll only. Thanks again! :rolleyes:


#2001685 Red Dead Redemption

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 20 June 2010 - 02:30 PM

Anybody want to buy my copy? It's in perfect condition, I'm just bored with it already.



Don't blame ya. I sold it back the day after I beat it. Fun game. But absolutely zero challenge in beating it. Hopefully the next red dead game will be the same type of game play, just with more of a challenge. Gamestop gave me 28 bucks store credit. Thats probably the most you're gonna get for it at this point.


#1994883 Red Dead Redemption

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 June 2010 - 03:09 PM

RDR is a great game. But I definitely wouldn't say it's rockstar's best game ever. I don't have much beef with the game. But the one beef I do have is a big one for me. The game is extremely easy to beat. No challenge at all on any mission. In fact, It was so easy that I stopped using "dead eye" about halfway into the game. And even without using any dead eye for the rest of the game, it was still very easy to beat. Whereas rockstar's GTA series was always a challenge at one point or another. Still, I would recommend RDR to anyone. I just think that overall GTA is the better series of rockstar games.


#1992522 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 01 June 2010 - 02:22 PM

I'm definitely happy that Lidstrom is coming back for another year. But I really thought he would take a much bigger pay cut. He's still an above average defenseman. But his production last season doesn't seam to warrant a 6.5 mill deal. I was thinking more like 5 mill. Hopefully he will play lights out all year.


#1991796 Improving by upgrading Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 31 May 2010 - 01:43 PM

I heard a few months ago that Todd will be willing to take a pay cut to stay with the Wings. So if thats the case, then I say we must keep him. Especially in this post cap era. Getting a decent player for dirt cheap is a must if we have the opportunity. And from what I hear, we have that opportunity with Bert.


#1989539 Steve Yzerman named TB's new GM

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 25 May 2010 - 01:42 PM

Wow... I mean I'm happy for Steve and everything, but I really thought he would be a Red Wing for life. For me, this is devastating news... Stevie should be our GM, or atleast our assistant GM. Man this blows...


#1982026 Who do you cheer for now?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 09 May 2010 - 11:28 AM

Well, I hate Pittsburgh and Chicago. So originally I was going to root on the Sharks if we were to get eliminated by them. But after seeing the refs quite literally hand the Sharks the series, I will now root against them the rest of the way. So I suppose for me, best case scenario would be either Boston, Philly, or Vancouver to win the cup. Unfortunately that doesn't seam likely. But that's what I'll be rooting for the rest of the way.


#1939359 The Official MMA Thread

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 13 April 2010 - 05:46 AM

Did anyone see UFC 112??? What the hell was Silva doing??? I'm really starting to get annoyed by his antics in the ring. It was bad enough when he was mocking his opponent and literally dancing while he was fighting. But then he basically ran in circles for over a round. Can't wait for GSP to light this fool up.


#1938375 Songs that make you laugh

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 12 April 2010 - 06:01 AM

Hail to the "Victors"...



What's funny about that? Despite Rich Rod's horrible first 2 years, Michigan is still has by far the highest winning percentage in college football history. And also, still owns Ohio State in the all time head to head record. OSU has had a good last 6 years against them, but even counting recent history of the past 30 years Michigan still owns OSU. So yeah, don't really see the humor in their fight song. Oh and btw, I went to Michigan State, so it's not like im hyping my home school or something. Get a clue buddy.

This next song also used to crack me up back in the day. And it definitely still does:

#1932662 Should the Wings part ways with Osgood?

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 05 April 2010 - 09:57 AM

And this is a forum to express points and opinions. You can do that in whichever thread you want related to the topic at hand as long as you aren't personally attacking somebody and doing it within the forum rules, bro. Including this one.



My original point was the fact that there are several Osgood related threads. So I didn't want this thread to turn into yet another one. And no you can't discuss and make comments in any thread you want. I have the option to lock out comments and turn the thread into a poll only. But just in case people had any questions I decided to leave it open. I tried to make it clear that this was a poll only. Might wanna lose that attitude though buddy. I was saying bro in a lighthearted way, not a cocky dickhead way. If you wanna keep making this thread an Osgood debate thread I will lock the comment option. I just wanted to see how the numbers broke down in terms of who still wants Ozzie and who doesn't. Simple as that.


#1932351 1-7-2

Posted by TheDetroitRedWings on 04 April 2010 - 06:28 PM

The big reason I hope we move on from Osgood is the hope that we'll get a solid reliable backup for Jimmy. Think about it, if Jimmy got hurt tomorrow and was out for 4-6 months, chances are we would be in big big trouble. So hopefully next season we'll have a capable consistent backup that would be able to come in if the worst happens to Howard, and we can all still feel confident about our team's chances. Howard's durability right now could literally make or break our chances of bringing home Lord Stanley's Cup. I pray that he stays healthy for the rest of the season and post season.
