#2626318 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by kipwinger on 22 September 2015 - 11:01 AM

 

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.

 

Any more messed up than thinking that a woman who reported a crime is a money hungry liar (as quite a few around here have not so subtly insinuated)?

 

This woman has done NOTHING to have her character called into question.  She reported an alleged crime, and obeyed the directives of the legal system thereafter. 

 

What should she have done differently in order to be taken seriously? 

 

Not talked to the media...oh wait, she didn't. 

Reported the crime immediately...oh wait, she did. 

Refuse to settle the case out of court...Yep, did that too. 

 

Apparently, if you're a woman (and you want to be taken seriously when reporting a sexual crime), you better have never been drunk or horny in your life because god knows you can't be raped if you made out with a guy in a bar earlier in the night. 

 

This is shameful. What if you reported a stolen car and everyone assumed you were lying in order to defraud the insurance company?  Oh, that's right, it woudn't happen because nobody is insane enough to assume that kind of thing regularly occurs.  Unless you're a woman, and you report a rape...then you're obviously weaving a nefarious web of deceit. 


The most obnoxious thing about this is that nobody actually believe the b.s. they're spewing. 

 

If your daughter, or sister, or girlfriend, or wife, or mother reported an alleged sexual assualt, nobody here would think "well she was hitting on that guy at the bar, so I've got to consider the possibility that maybe she just wants his money". 

 

Nobody.  Would.  Think.  That.

Please get off the high horses and stop acting like Wings fans wouldn't be doing the exact same thing.


Speak for yourself. If this was Pavel Datsyuk instead of Patrick Kane, I would be heartbroken if the Wings handled it this way and would tap out until it was made right. I can't control what other fans would do.

You know what is more disgusting than the Blackhawks organization not suspending Kane until this is resolved?

The fact that the Blackhawks organization gave Kane a *public effing platform* to paint his accuser as a liar. A PRESS CONFERENCE.

f*** Kane and f*** the s***ty ass Blackhawks.

I would think a settlement is likely.  If he's not guilty, she's going to take the settlement and run.  If he's guilty, she may well rather end it with something than face a jury and have to recount the most horrific thing that's ever happened to her, knowing that in such a high-profile case people will be glued to every word.

 

If I were in her shoes (assuming he's guilty), I'd take the money.  Justice would not be served, but if you find yourself in that situation, sometimes your own peace comes before the greater good.  At least he's been exposed and other women will be warned.

That is the problem : It will never completely go away if he agrees on a settlement. But processes like this tend to get very ugly for the accused weather he or she is guilty or not so it's absolutely understandable if Kane wants to get out of this without the case going to trial.


Things also tend to get disgusting for the victim in these situations, so while I don't *agree* with her settling if Kane is in fact guilty, I certainly *understand* it.

#2620420 Ryan O’Reilly Charged With Impaired Driving

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 13 July 2015 - 08:56 PM

The only way this sentence could be more Canadian, is if it said "sorry aboot that" somewhere in there.


Was just gonna post the same thing :lol:

Kidding aside, I will never understand why grown ass adults STILL GET BEHIND THE WHEEL WHEN IMPAIRED. It's all fun and games when you hit a Tim Horton's, but when you are responsible for murdering someone the shine kind of wears off. Ryan, I am disappointed in you, your beard, AND your ridiculously adorable face and hot body. SHAME.

Less than two weeks after signing a seven year contract extension worth $52.5-million, Buffalo Sabres centre Ryan OReilly has been charged with impaired driving after a pickup truck collided with a Tim Hortons in Lucan, Ont.
 
Per AM980

The only way this sentence could be more Canadian, is if it said "sorry aboot that" somewhere in there.

Arrogant? Blow things out of proportion much Frank?

 

From that article:

 

“I’m pretty confident in my own abilities,” Eichel told a throng of reporters and cameras Friday at the NHL Scouting Combine inside HarborCenter. “I know everyone’s making a big deal.” Eichel never intended to compare himself to McDavid, who will be picked first by the Edmonton Oilers. “It’s more of just confidence in my own self,” Eichel said.

 

Seems pretty down to earth to me, nothing wrong with confidence in oneself.

#2609659 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

To be fair, Fetisov was 31 when he came over. Kids these days need a little oppression, builds character. :)




#2609641 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by kipwinger on 22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 

 

You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 

 

And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 

 

Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 

 

What a dick.

#2608130 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by DatsyukianDekes on 16 May 2015 - 05:38 PM


I really like Babcock. 10 years is enough, and he hasn't done much lately. HIs Stanley cup and Olympic gold-medals were pretty much due to the fact that he was given the keys to the fastest car each time. Substitute other coaches for him in those scenarios and they are the winners.


 
I don't understand why people here have such a hard time realizing this.  


Because there is things called opinions. Does everyone have to agree with you?

Babs stays good for us. He leaves good for us we end up with Blashill. Let's not pretend Babs is a horrible coach and needs to go.

Posted by kliq on 15 May 2015 - 07:16 PM

I am shocked that people that call themselves Red Wing fans, are actually hoping that if Babcock leaves, the Wings fail just to prove a point on a message board that Babcock was a good coach.

If you care more about "being right" then the Wings being successful, I don't think you are that big of a fan.

 

I hope Babs stays as I think he's a great coach. But if he leaves, I still want us to win. I care more about the Wings as a whole, then Babcock as an individual..
