#2212857 10/7 GDT:Senators 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 October 2011 - 10:13 AM

My prediction:

Wings 27 Sens -4

We beat them so bad that they end up with negative goals.


#2210793 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 September 2011 - 10:00 AM

Wow. Thats pretty over the top.

Especially considering other players got less for similar hits this preseason AND it wasn't a targeted head shot and Ben Smith was just as at fault as Brendan Smith for trying that fancy toe drag at the last second.

#2210774 Winchester Gets Drilled

Total props to Volpatti too. He held up when he knew Winchester was down. Some players would have just kept swinging.

Exactly what I was going to post.

#2210540 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by sleepwalker on 29 September 2011 - 11:20 AM

No surprise here, a hearing has been scheduled for Smith: link.

Some of those comments are beyond ridiculous. People need to use logic instead of getting all over the top emotional without even knowing the facts.

But, I agree with PrarieDog, this will be interesting to see what Shanny does, as it was most definitely a head hit, but the head was not the target and Ben Smith made a sudden movement at the very last second that unintentionally shifted Brendon Smith POA from the shoulder to the head.

#2207803 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 September 2011 - 02:35 PM

from what I have read it looks like 38 million plus. Moore's lawyers say the 38 is the estimated loss of income he would have earned over his NHL career, plus more due to the fact that the brain damage he suffered

I think the fact that he thinks he would have made 40mil in the NHL is proof enough that he has massive brain damage, lol.

#2207778 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

But it's always easier to sue for money...it's the American way.

Its the Canadian way too, apparantly. ;)

#2207396 Will Ericsson Earn His Raise?

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 September 2011 - 02:28 PM

He damn well better earn his raise this year, cause as it stands right now, he is sof****** insanely overpaid with his new contract, its not even funny.

#2206887 McCrimmon, Salei on board Russian plane crash

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 September 2011 - 10:52 AM

I want to just say how sad this made me.
Especially for the nearly newborn child of Ruslan. That is awful how that child will never know their parent.

I also wish the headline for this thread was about the team tragedy and not the few people that we are supposed to care about. It implies that we wouldn't care about it unless there were former Wings on the plane. That irks me a little. Not to cause a big to do, I just want to remind people that there are 38 families that will suffer in this. As well as one BIG hockey family.

I agree, but on that note, lets not forget about the flight crew members as well. There were 44 or 45 people total onboard I beleive, not just the 38 from Lokomotiv. The crew members families are suffering just as much I'm sure...

Cmon guys, this isn't the time or place for a religious arguement.

Everyone mourns in their own way be it having a few beers with friends and reliving memories, being alone for a while to reflect, or saying prayers.

We should put any differences we might have aside at a times like this.

Here's a problem with being fat that affects everyone: It is gluttonous. Fat people don't need all that food. There are billions of people on this planet starving, and being fat and eating more than you need not only steals a meal off a starving child's plate in Africa or India, but indirectly raises food prices domestically. If you think that is ok, then you need a lesson in ethics.

How big is your house or apartment? I assume not more than a max of 150 square feet, evevn that seems a bit excessive, no? Do you own more than a couple very basic outfits of clothing? I assume you also don't own a car either, correct? Wait...why are you on the internet right now?

My point? Shut the f*** up you hypocrite. You live a gluttonous life of essentially unnessessary excess, just like the rest of us. Dumbass.

#2206196 Red Wings Sponsor?

Posted by sleepwalker on 04 September 2011 - 07:26 PM

Martyr...You seem to honestly beleive in Amway an support it 100%. Your choice, obviously.

BUT, that fact that you are literally the only person on this entire thread that feels that way has to tell you something. Every single person that has posted about this topic here is 100% against Amway sponsoring the Wings, and as pointed out multiple times, it has absolutely nothing to do with the Wings having corporate sponsership, but the fact that they chose Amway.

Amway is a scam pyramid sceme. That is an undisputed FACT. They are predatory scumbags. FACT.

The fact that they are now aligned with the most respected team in the NHL, if not one of the most respected teams in all professional sports, quite literally disgusts most of us to our very core. This is like making a deal with the devil...quite literally.

My Escobar analogy earlier in the thread that you hated and took offense to so much was 100% accurate, regardless of how you personally feel about it.

Its a deal with the devil. And the fact the the Wings are not even close to being in financial trouble makes it all the worse. This is Tom, money hungry scumbag f***, Wilsons baby. Almost all Detroit Red Wings fans absolutely HATE him for making this deal.

The League just loves off-season headshots.

I like the rolls of fat on the back of his neck.


#2206029 Red Wings Sponsor?

Posted by sleepwalker on 02 September 2011 - 06:24 PM

Honestly, I don't think many people would have been nearly upset if it had been Belle tire, or GM, or any other Detroit based business that brings pride. I think what bugs people is they went with a shady pyramid scheme company. Plus, the article posted earlier made a great point. Promoting a pyramid scheme into a severely economically depressed area, it's like throwing a wolf in with some sheep.

THIS is exactly the point.

People aren't upset about corporate sponsorship, as that was inevitable. People are upset because its Amway. Amway is a shadyf****** pyramid scheme. They are scumbags that prey on the vulnerable.

And to the guy who keeps saying the Amway helped out their local community. So what? I know its an extreme example, but so did Pablo Escobar. He was considered a saint in his community and helped everyone out, built up neighborhoods, built schools, etc. But in the bigger scheme of things, he was a total monster. Much like Amway.
