#2092046 Florida screwed by officials

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 January 2011 - 03:10 PM

So what I don't understand is why Toronto didn't call down and inform them that the puck was in thet net.


The ref probably would have just made some excuse to save face anyway and still called it no goal.

Remember that on the Brad May goal, Toronto did call down and tell LaRue that it was most definitely a good goal, but LaRue argued about it and refused to reverse his call, because his massive ego would not let him admit he was wrong, even though Toronto, the people looking at the play from every angle, told him he was most definitely wrong on the phone. s***, even Mike Murphey did a pregame interview the next game basically apologizing and admitting LaRue was wrong. And that s*** NEVER happens!

(yes, I'm still a bit bitter)


#2091487 John Keating is lazy and sucks

I'm not saying people can't be converted, but to make a sweeping generalization about the only people who don't like beer are people who haven't tried beer is kinda ridiculous.




So reword your post so you don't sound so stupid. What a ridiculous generalization. Maybe the most ridiculous I've ever heard. Congrats on that anyway.


Perhaps you should work on your reading comprehension skills a bit, eh?

I said, and I quote "ALMOST all people I'VE TALKED TO"

I didn't make any sweeping generalization, I clearly stated that what I said was just based on people I have personally talked to. I never said all either, I said almost all.


#2091469 Red Wings Tough Guy?

Posted by sleepwalker on 05 January 2011 - 04:34 PM

You want Hudler to start fighting? :blink:

You realize the kid is like 5'2" and 100 pounds soaking wet, and his head would likely explode on the first punchto the face he received, right?


#2087785 Question about the average american's view on NHL

Posted by sleepwalker on 31 December 2010 - 02:03 PM

How come there are articles about it, journalists etc saying for the sport to grow among the general population in america they must remove fighting?


Because some journalists are clueless morons?

Hell, if anything, to make it catch on with the "average American", you'd have to have MORE fights. At the very minimum one a game, I'd guess.


#2086564 Pierre McGuire at his best.

Dirty hit.


Wrong.

If there was contact, it was because his chinstrap wasn't done up properly. That was a whiplash play more than anything else.


#2080005 Support your Detroit Red Wings in the NHL All Star Game

Posted by sleepwalker on 17 December 2010 - 05:10 PM

f*** that. I'd be happy if there were no Wings in the all star game. Last thing we need is to risk one of our boys possibly getting injured in the silly all star game.


#2077238 Datsyuk, Crosby. On a level of their own.

crosby is better defensively than datsyuk


Damn, dude...I told you not to smoke all that crack at once.

Now look what you've done to yourself.


#2074100 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 December 2010 - 03:06 PM

Pang had to feel like sh*t afterwards.


Yeah...and that is ridiculous.

To be living in such overly PC-ified times that you actually end up feeling horrible and getting a knot in your stomach for making an innocent mistake in speech, that meant nothing more than being a simple slip of the tongue in two words that are nearly identical, is a sad state of affairs.


#2074095 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 December 2010 - 02:54 PM

Hopefully this doesn't become a big deal because it's not at all. He just got ahead of himself while thinking of the word, "way" and "white" slipped out. I was expecting something worse, and I think you all know which word I'm talking about...


Good thing they weren't talking about which player was bigger, eh? lol



Seriously though, the PC-ification of America these days is getting utterly ridiculous. The fact that he felt the need to, or was forced to, apologize publically over what was obviously just an innocent slip of the tongue just further proves this.

Makes me think of this good'n with Downey;







#2043059 Superimposed ads on the glass

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 October 2010 - 12:50 PM

I can't blame teams for doing this.


The teams aren't doing it, Fox sports and the other stations are doing it. Neither the teams nor the NHL get any of that money. It goes to the station.


#2043006 Superimposed ads on the glass

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 October 2010 - 11:31 AM

They did this for a few games last year, and it was extremely annoying, obnoxious and distracting. I thought they had chosen against it. Well, unfortunately it looks like they are back at it again. Does anyone know if this is something they plan to do with all the games now?

Personally, I can't f'in stand them. As if having big ads on the ice, on the boards, as well as pop up ads on the tv screen wasn't enough...
