#2551516 Saluting the fans

Posted by vladdy16 on 24 November 2014 - 01:03 PM

Is it the fans really or is it the media blowing it out of proportion?  Either is possible - even likely!  Throw a dart, it's the right answer.

 

I don't think saluting should be done other than at the last home game of the season, win or lose.

I understand some consider attendance to be a problem, but this is not a discussion we need to have in every single GDT.  Please start a separate attendance thread if you'd like to pursue the topic.




#2548764 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 November 2014 - 06:42 PM

  I think everyone on this letsgowings.com already wants to travel to Vegas to see the Wings play in 70 weather in mid-January.  

That would make an interesting poll.  You might want to start that topic.

 

And I really wish the NHL would stop shoving it down our throats. Fetch is never gonna happen.

The NHL will stop shoveling s*** down our throats when we stop eating it.  But we're "The Greatest Fans" in the universe.

 

And "fetch" is totally going to happen.  *****.

What af****** joke.

The NHL can be rumored to suck my ass.

But that's never even been discussed internally *rim shot*, let alone actually considered.

 

I find it hard to believe anyone is actually surprised by this "announcement."

From the "Things You Can't Unsee" file, the Bruins go as a Frozen ensemble.

Finally it all makes sense... Babcock said of his thought process in determining the lines: "I just get out the Bingo machine on the back of the bench and spin it around and throw it out". Finally some reasoning behind these lines... :lol:

I saw that.  He does have a pretty good sense of humor.  

 

Here's the article for anyone interested.  There's a couple of links in there I found interesting as well.

#2542474 10/18 GDT - Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 1 (OT)

Posted by vladdy16 on 19 October 2014 - 10:13 AM

Holy crap, there were a lot of Leafs fans there last night.  I usually like it when Leafs fans show up - they get the Joe rockin', but there were some trolls in my section.  I was a little overly joyful they had to make the trek home disappointed.

Leafs' defense played extremely well last night.  I'm not surprised we struggled to score.  I wasn't thrilled when they pulled the trap out of the old bag of tricks a few times, but their backchecking was nothing short of stifling.  Wings played very unevenly - moments of brilliance along with moments of WTH, but a surprisingly good 0-0 game through 3.

I wouldn't mind seeing Phaneuf choke on a Timbit sometime soon though.

Beautiful GDT!  Classic.  

 

Didn't think this merited it's own thread, but:

UPDATE: The ‪#‎RedWings‬ have signed Tyler Bertuzzi to a three-year entry-level contract.

For the record, Matt has access to every post or thread that is deleted.  There is nothing mods can remove that can't be reviewed by Matt.

I can't add a lot to what harold has already said, but I will chime in with sometimes posts are deleted because they're responding to a post that needed to be deleted and to leave it would make no sense.

I deleted a whole page from the Howard thread.  I knew that thread was going to be trouble the minute it was started, but did what I could to keep it alive because it had the potential to be a good discussion.  I will guarantee that I personally have never deleted a post simply because I disagreed with the opinion stated therein.  If I delete a post, more often than not it's because it contains a personal attack, or more recently contains information Matt would prefer not be available on LGW for legal reasons.  Personally I would rather refute an opinion than delete it.  If we all thought the same way, it would make for poor discussion.

Another suggestion I'd like to make is to PLEASE PM a mod if you have any questions or concerns - don't post in GD threads.  It will be deleted because it's off topic (not the place for those types of conversations), not because we're power-hungry.  Seriously, cleaning up off topic or personal attack posts is not in my top ten ways to spend an evening.

Please express your opinions about the game, not about other posters, their ability to see, whether they ever actually watched a hockey game before, their parentage or whether they're the briefs or boxers type.

While the Wings got jobbed on the no call, they had plenty of chances to win this game beforehand.  Pretty exciting game though, and YAY, no injuries.  That in itself is a win.
