Denigrating a country or it's citizens is completely unacceptable. Anyone participating in such a discussion will be persona non grata for an appropriate length of time.
The Olympics were created to encourage good will and inspire friendly competition. Please let's enjoy these games in that intended spirit.
Also, I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the "Report" button. It truly is your best friend behind Matt. If you see a post you feel is against forum guidelines, it is VERY helpful to use the report function.
1) Vladdy's medical bills are being paid for by the limo's insurance company.
2) Fundraisers were held for at least two years following the accident.
Anything else is pure conjecture on our parts. Fetisov has no proof of anything, there is nothing online that's recent, no one here lives with Konstantinov and no one here is Mike Ilitch. We're all welcome to our opinions and gut feelings, but that's all they are at this point. We shouldn't lambaste anyone without having a shred of something concrete to go on.
There's definitely too many outdoor games and having Kiss play was awful, but the snobbery in this thread is hilarious. And aren't being honest with themselves about the level of play in the Winter Classic under those conditions.
Also, a few people don't seem to realize the Los Angeles Kings have been in the NHL for 47 years.
If it's snobbery to think a red carpet at a hockey game is ludicrous, then I'll gladly embrace the snob label. It was turned into a circus and a place to be seen rather than an opportunity to enjoy a hockey game. Don't you think you're being a little overly sensitive?
And where is anyone ragging on a team? I don't understand your comment about the Kings.
I say if they want to play an outdoor game, great, we'll be happy to host it for you. Come on over.
Whoa!! Sorry, didn't realize there was an issue. My bad.
Sorry mate, i didnt mean to get off topic, i see a conversation and i reply to it. Rarely thinking about if im in the right thread to post such a reply.
But i see what yamean. Just dont drop the banhammer! Were all friends here!
Yeah, everyone got off track. I kinda thought a page and a half disappearing would give folks a hint, but apparently no one noticed.
Player comes back, lines change. Where a guy plays, who sits, and who gets shuffled to a new line is all part of the conversation.
You might think that, but not really. Especially not with the 100 other threads with the exact same conversation going on. No need to repeat the same thing in multiple threads.
