#2449273 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by sleepwalker on 31 October 2013 - 11:48 AM

I don't think anyone should pass any judgement whatsoever, until we know exactly what happened.  (which we likely never will)  Especially since the laws in this country are so convoluted and f***ed up, and they'll lock you up and hit you with a half dozen charges just for blinking wrong.  (hence the highest prison population on the planet)


You know when you were a kid and your mother said "com here young man/lady" and grabbed your arm?  Well, technically, since she touched your arm, that's felony assault and since she moved you from your previous position, that is kidnapping.


As an adult example, a few years ago a friend of mine had these exact same two charges filed against him.  What happened was his girlfriend at the time came home all f***ed up on some sort of hard drugs and started going literally crazy and screaming and tearing his place up.  He finally got her to calm down and told her she had to leave.  He opened the door and said come back when you are sober and calm down and lightly put his hand on her shoulder and escorted her the two feet out the door.  I was actually there when this happened with my girlfriend at the time, so I saw exactly what happened.


Anyway, we leave and the next day, we come to find out that HE was charged with kidnapping and assault because several hours later the girl decided to call the cops for whatever reason.  According to the cops, making her leave HIS house was considered kidnapping, and since he lightly put his hand on her shoulder, they decided to charge him with assault too.  Oh, and they flat out refused to charge her with anything despite the fact that she tore his house up and scratched his arms up while in a drug fit, while he did absolutely nothing to defend himself.


This...unfortunately, is the system we live in here...





I am definitely NOT excusing Varlamov if he actually did beat and kidnap his girl, but from the one story I have encountered first hand and others I have heard about over the years, most of these "kidnapping and assault" charges the cops conjure up are BS and not at all what the name of the charges would have you think.

#2448325 The most annoying things about being at games?

Posted by sleepwalker on 27 October 2013 - 12:18 PM

I very much prefer to just watch games at home, instead of going to the games.  I don't have to shell out a hundred bucks for parking, overpriced crap beer, etc.  Instead I can sit at home with my friends and enjoy great food that only cost what the ingredients cost, good beer, not have to deal with assholes, actually be comfortable, etc.


Oh, and to the person bitching about the people who complain about how the seats are too small, well they are.  I am your average tall guy and I am not fat, but I could barely fit in the seats.  They are made for shorter/skinny people.  Its like the people who say the people complaining about the seats on planes are just fat whales, when in reality if you are over 6'2", there is no way you can comfortably sit in a coach seat.  Thats just facts.

Completely disagree with Mick and his talk about how its good the crowd hasn't boo'd like most crowds would at this point.


Fact is, the Wings played crap this game and looked lackadaisical and apathetic for half the game.  If any time, this is one of those times the fans should give them a little boo, if not for the play itself (which deserves it) at least it might light a little fire under their asses.

It will  be anywhere from 1 to 10 games, depending on where the pointer on Shannys wheel of justice lands after he spins it...

#2444688 Pronger is done

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 October 2013 - 03:44 PM

I don't feel the least bit sorry for Pronger. 


This is poetic justice for a dirty scumbag of a player who spent his whole career viciously and intentionally trying to injure people.


At least Cooke is trying to pull a Mikita.  Pronger was dirty to the very end.

#2444669 Ruslan Saleiís Family Uses Russian TV Psychic To Contact Him

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 October 2013 - 02:01 PM

I really hate to see people taken advantage of when they are most vulnerable.


I watched about two minutes of Long Island Medium once. She asks this guy (40-50 years old) if he's ever had a near death experience.

Now how many people are gonna be 40-50 years old, look back on their life and say they've never had a near death experience??? Probably close to none.

Then the guy proceeds to TELL HER THAT IT HAD TO DO WITH FIRE!!!! What does she say?  "Ohh I was gonna say...cuz I felt really warm...must have been a fire!!"


and people think this $H*T is real???





Reminds me of that episode of Home Movies where McGuirk is pretending to be a blind psychic.


"Does anyone here know someone who died?...."


"C'mon, nobody?!  Look, its statistically impossible that nobody here knows someone who died!"




(I'm paraphrasing)

I just want to repeat his one more time...



As far as reffing goes, this is one of the most ridiculously and obviously biased games I've seen in the last couple years.\\\




The refs should be utterly ashamed of themselves for this spectacle.



This game was just completelyf****** absurd.  We won only despite the refs best efforts to throw this game the other way.

#2444256 Monday 1 PM start time?

Posted by sleepwalker on 14 October 2013 - 12:56 PM

I absolutely love it. Day off work, turkey left overs and Red Wing game.


Hard to beat.





What, are you guys just co-opting our thanksgiving and traditions?  lol



Shouldn't you guys be celebrating with poutine and Labatts?  Maybe a little back bacon?





#2443981 Fight ends with on-ice seizure

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 October 2013 - 01:59 PM

But we need fighting to keep the players safe.



I see what you did there.


Just to play devils advocate...  One could argue that the only reason injuries like this occur is because players are forced to play on slippery ice and balance on a single blade. 


Ban ice and skates and lets play on a rubber surface and wear sneakers.

#2443076 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by sleepwalker on 10 October 2013 - 07:02 PM

This game is a perfect example of how this hybrid icing is going to be a complete clusterf***.


The refs have blown almost every icing/non- icing call so far this game due to that new hybrid crap.

#2442885 Ex-Coyotes owner off hook for Gretzkyís $6.5M.

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 October 2013 - 06:33 PM

Honestly, it serves them right for supporting this travesty for so long.  The NHL took over the team, they took over the debts.  


Too many people forget this simple fact.


To bring it closer to home, its like the people who think you can just buy a house in Detroit these days for $1000 since you always hear about htings like that on the news. 


While technically that's true, but what also comes along with that "$1000 house" it is the $34,000 in unpaid taxes owed on it.

#2442841 Stuart faces hearing for hit to head

I always hate when things that were originally non calls like this, are all of the sudden called like 20 seconds after the fact and only when they think someone may have got injured.  Just watch that first video and see how super late of a call it was.

I'm sure plenty of people are calling it hot dogging.  Remember when everyone was pissed at Pavs for doing a between the legs on a blow out game within the last few years?  I don't remember which game it was.


Its interesting how much things have changed in just the last few years.  Now people cheer and talk about how awesome these blowouts are.


Just about 5 or 6 years ago though, when the Wings were destroying opponents like this often, a good amount of players, fans, and announcers alike were complaining about how it was bad form and disrespectful to keep scoring goals on an opponent when you are dominating them like that, and after a 3 goal or so lead, you should just sit back and not score any more.  I always thought that was hippy-dippy BS, but for whatever reason, it seemed to be the consensus just a few years back.

#2441337 Oilers Name Six Alternate Captains

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 October 2013 - 12:49 PM



Is this like the Oilers version of the stupid "participation trophy"?  Everyone who is a member of the Oilers gets named an Alternate captain, so as not to hurt anyones feelings...
