The most annoying things about being at games?

26 October 2013 - 11:37 PM

First off, being at the Joe for Wings games is awesome.

It's also not perfect. Nothing is. (That is, of course, unless they win the cup.)

Last night, for instance, I was at the game and unfortunately I was in a row with people who clearly were not there to watch the game. They constantly made everyone else in our row get up so they could get out and do God knows what.

I also can't stand those people who constantly try to take other people's seats because they think they're open. At some point it's just like, "Dude, the Joe doesn't really have many bad seats. Just chill out in the seat you paid for (I'm assuming).

I think the most annoying ones of all are those who leave early when they are either down a goal or the game is tied. Ugh.

How about you guys?

Pretty self-explanatory thread.


I'll start out with this one:



Will young talent ever speak out against Wings philosophy?

Will we ever see the day where a young talent simply snaps and goes outright publicly HAM against the Wings development philosophy?


The stereotype is that hockey players are so down to earth and humble but you always got your handful of individuals who have a little bit of a screw loose. 


One of these days I wonder if a young but established NHL player will ever just lose his mind and any sense of class and publicly rants to the media, "Yeah, I'm glad I didn't get drafted by Detroit.  I played one year in juniors after I got drafted, two years in the AHL; for all my years scored in the top 20 in my respective leagues, worked on my overall game, went to training camp and earned a full-time roster spot.  More or less, that's how it should be.  I didn't have management that played favorites.  I didn't have management that tried to reduce my salary negotiating power by trapping me in the minors so I couldn't earn a bigger and more fair contract for my abilities with NHL experience and a decent opportunity to prove myself.  I didn't have to deal with that BS and I'm thankful to the X organization for not tossing out some bullcrap about being overripe.  You ever tried eating an overripe fruit?  It's disgusting."


Would that person be 100% right?  Hell no.  But I wouldn't be surprised if perhaps one of these days during perhaps a rivalry playoff series that a player on the opposing team tries to stir the pot that way. 

Should we expect a slow start from Alfie?

Should we expect a slow start from Alfie?

No pre-season games for him yet so he can warm up for the regular season. We've seen slow starts before from players who have to deal with injuries before the season starts.

Silly Question: What would the game of hockey look like if...

03 August 2013 - 09:46 PM

...they played it with an American football in proportion size to the puck? 


In all honesty, the puck makes enough crazy bounces as it is.  But would a mini football make the game that much more unpredictable?  It did so for the knee hockey game my buddies and I just played.
