He defended a child pornographer?

Duh.  Haven't you ever heard of due process? The Constitution?

Not cool mods, if you're going to delete my comments and make me look like the bad guy here, then delete all the comments.  I responded civily and respectfully, if you delete my comments, then they all must go.

And we're back to why the first thread was locked.  Stick to facts about the case and how this case is affecting hockey.  That's it.

What?  I took the position that no one knows what the facts are, and our personal bias will in the meantime fill in the blanks as to what we 'think' happened.  That is called having an open mind before the actual trial starts where they present the facts. 
 
It seems that you have already assumed Kane is guilty, and that anything anyone says contrary is messed up to you.  That, my friend is your bias, and exactly what I am referring to.

Go back and look through what I said.
Did I state my position, or post what facts have came through?
I'll wait.



I didn't say a damn thing for you to suggest that my bias' has filled in any blanks as to my position on the subject, and furthermore, you calling me out on an opinion(that I never took) after using your own bias is kind of insane.

And I asked you a question, didn't question your motives, or your take on the case, so I'd appreciate you not assigning an opinion to me about something so sickening as if it were a trivial matter.
I didn't state my opinion for the reason that this isn't something to take lightly, or speculate about especially given the fact that has come out.

I'm not trying to call you out personally on this, but don't you think that attitude is messed up given the circumstance?

I think that George RR Martin tells a much better fantasy than JRR Tolkien.

I saw that too. Quite humorous indeed. Can't even agree that they had a meeting or not.


Whoever called negotiations a Gong Show up thread was spot on. I'm starting to hear the Benny Hill theme music anytime someone reports on progress (or lack thereof).

Leadership on the PA side has already been cleaned. Fehr has only been around for two years. He also played a part in resolving exactly this type of owner-player distrust/dislike in MLB.

Not really. They fired Paul Kelly because they felt he wasn't confrontational enough and they wanted somebody that could get under the owners skin. Fehr has no doubt accomplished that goal. I think some of the owners have developed a personal hate against fehr and I don't see that every going away so long as fehr is head of the pa. Both sides need a reset at the same time


That's rather vague. What could one side do that you would consider concentrating enough on getting a deal done?


examples of both sides not caring about getting a deal done and negotiating in bad faith:

-The owners insulting lowball first offer

-The union dragging its feet on getting negations going and then dragging its feet on putting forth proposals, especially in September and October

-The union not even running the numbers on their own proposals

-The owners take it or leave it approach to negotiating and setting pre conditions on meetings

-Fehr showing up hours late to meetings

-The owners trying to break up the union through pr stunts such as claiming that fehr is misinforming the players about their proposals

And the pr spin and bs by both sides throughout this process has been ridiculous.

I can go on and on with more instances of both sides negotiating in bad faith or simply not caring about getting a deal done.
