Just typed 'porn stars and stds' on Yahoo, and found this...http://www.laweekly....ucla-study-says
Granted - they get tested alot, but there appears to a number of cases to suggest otherwise.

I like how there was an editors note at the bottom of the article you referenced that basically refutes your entire statement.

#2543541 Myers close to become a wing?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 23 October 2014 - 04:04 PM

Right now I think Myers is a bit better than Smith and Dekeyser.  I think that's going to change fairly soon though.  Given Myers' contract, I don't want him unless they're willing to take a ridiculously craptacular package in return, which they won't.

Did you know that Myers is younger than Smith and the same age as Dekeyser? If they have room to improve, why doesn't Myers?

Just a random thought. I know Adam Almquist went overseas, but if I recall correctly, the Wings still hold his rights. Is that a piece we could throw in to a package to help keep Larkin and Mantha off the table? He was good in the AHL but a bit undersized. He might fit with a team like the Sabres, though on the surface he's likely not much, if any, value now.

Better throw in Emmerton just to be sure...

#2542836 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by Bannedforlife on 21 October 2014 - 01:03 PM

You said that holland's offseason was a failure even though you admit that prices were too high... you blame him for signing weiss even though he had no way of knowing that he would get injured... you criticize him for resigning quincey even though he has been playing great so far... you called franzen "franzine"...

Id call that bashing

#2542820 Franzen to 7-day IR

Posted by Bannedforlife on 21 October 2014 - 12:17 PM

this is why Holland's off season was such a failure.  Not that I wanted him to pay the prices other teams were asking for, but he could have been a bit more active in UFA. I get the Cleary promise, but he isn't playing anyway.  He waited and waited for Alfie to make a decision...he is still waiting actually.  He should have been looking for depth at the top 6.  I know Dats and Z are lights out together, but I really think they would be doing much better for this team apart, with other legit scorers on their wing.  The only reason they are kept together is they don't have enough top 6 talent to surround them on two line.  Weiss has been a wash out (it happens) and now the Sheahan line is being forced to be a top 6 when they are best on the third, because a lot of other teams bottom 6er's can't match them.  Now they are playing against other teams top 6 and it is showing a bit.
I fully believe our 4 centers should be Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Sheahan and Helm with Andy in the press box for backup. It will be nearly impossible to get rid of Weiss, but that is fine if he is already destined for the press box anyhow.  IMO, if Holland would have been a bit more aggressive July 1st and offered some more cash to the likes of Heatley and Iginla our top 6 would have been perfectly fine with Franzine going down.  I mean they wouldn't be missing his output as much as they are going to do so now.
I know the focus was on a RH defender, but when his first couple of targets went elsewhere, instead of panicing and re-signing Q for so much right away, he should have maybe turned focus on his offense and addressed Q in August when he would have cost less...or maybe he would have gone elsewhere, which wouldn't really had mattered. Again the Cleary promise is what it is...stupid, but it happened.  I think, a full healthy lineup that looked like this would have been awesome.  (also I know it doesn't mean the UFA's would have come here, or at the very least it would have cost a bit more cash.)
Heatley - Datsyuk - Iginla
Franzen - Zetterberg - Nyquist
Jurco - Sheahan - Tatar
Abdelkader - Helm - Glendening
Ya, there wasn't enough roster room because of Weiss and Cleary, but that, again, is where Holland screwed up.  Andersson and Miller in the press box rotating in and out.  I know Nesty wouldn't be here, but he wouldn't have to be when all are healthy.  I know its only a 23 man roster and this would have 24, but if push came to shove you can always find a home for Andy or Weiss.  Heck, you may be able to waive Andy and he would probably clear.  Then there is Cleary.... :facepalm:
All hypothetical of course, since Holland...well...was Holland over the summer.

Sometimes I like to imagine that Leftwinger is actually a brilliant comedian, and that his constant Holland/Franzen/Howard/Cleary/Quincey/Ericsson bashing is some sort of masterful performance piece titled, "Subtle Trolling"

#2542758 Weiss

Posted by Bannedforlife on 21 October 2014 - 12:33 AM

100 agree jimmyemeryhunter I cant believe most ppl are wanting to have miller and andy off that forth line when it has been amazing so far I don't want that line messed with when there isn't nothing wrong with it remember if ant broke I would assume though someone needs t be moved to lighten the load which is why if everyone continues to play  as they have I would be ok with moving Weiss if he wanted to waive the trade clause and if we could package him and kindl for a good top 4 d man hell yea that gives us a win/win both ways keeps a strong forward lineup and a good defensive lineup you might even beable to sneak Ouellete in there too to get him to play as well than you couldn't imagine the progress



I agree so than what do we do with him and would it be smart to just trade him away from a pick if we cant get a least a decent return on d for him

ok so they haven't been SCORING but sometimes you take what you can get glendening has a goal so far and could have had another against any other goalie last night who wasn't named Beriner truth is I like how well they have played so far and am willing to give that line the benefit if they continue to be Aces on the P ill however I agree we need more offense but hopefully when Dats gets back we can get some lines adjusted for that and who knows maybe Mantha might still be an option however I doubt we pull off getting any top 6 forward in a trade

Are all the punctuation keys on your keyboard broken?

He'll probably use his speech as an opportunity to announce his un-retirement from the NHL...


Classic Hasek

Let's at least wait until the end of the month or next month or dec before we form opinions on good we are or arnt it's WAY TOO EARLY.

I think the "Hockeytown" should be removed from center ice very soon if these empty seats keep popping up like this. Sorry but this is embarrassing.

I think it should be against forum rules to complain about attendance WHILE WATCHING THE GAME ON TV

Posted by Bannedforlife on 14 October 2014 - 03:21 PM

Frank and others that always say, "well don't read it then, problem solved...", I don't know about anyone else on here but I don't know until after I read something if it is something that I would categorize as "getting old" or "rubbish" or whatever... But believe me, if I could "unread" a lot of what a few people on here have to say, I most certainly would... Unfortunately that is not an option, so I will have to continue to suffer reading through some of the bulls***...

Its quite simple actually... Just look at the author of the post before you read it. I wont name names, but I think we all know which ones to avoid... unless youre a masochist.

Look I've had countless posts just disappear on me. Seriously I've lost track, it's that many. And from what I've read other posters have had similar issues.


It isn't an isolated issue, it happens all the time.


And again from other posters as well as my own experience, other forums aren't like this at all. It just doesn't happen. Except here.

Maybe you could make up some stats that keep track of why your content gets deleted. For example,


PIO - Personally insulting others

BAW - Bickering after warning

ALD - Acting like dick

TC% - Trolling content %


Just off the top of my head...

I think it's a mistake to play all of the starters on opening night. What if they all get injured?! I think we should play all the Griffins tonight, and as they get injured throughout the year, we can replace them with the regulars. Duh.

#2539054 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Do you really think it was some sort of strategy to make him hungrier to take a spot?  Seems like it was just the last vestiges of Babs' "tie goes to the vet" philosophy. 

I read this article on the subject just this morning

I think we need to bring it back this seaso--ahem, excuse me:

What's to stop Chelios from bringing back the "what's to stop Chelios" meme this season?

Nothing, that's what. Boom.

It was me. I was bummed nobody brought it up,.. until now!
