You may all go back to breathing and stop clutching your hearts again. Still. Important news. Had a pretty good International tourny this year.

You also know a proper title wouldn't get as many hits. I work in music journalism and post internet news stories. I know what's traffic bait.

I'm happy I had read the article before, so I knew you were trolling.

 

As for the topic at hand, shame he couldn't go out with a medal. Amazing that he came to play when so many of their top players decided to pass.

I know it's awful. He deserved one more medal. Hopefully he gets one last playoff run before he hangs em up for good.

This is also not your job. Because these are fellow Devils fans...why would you get joy out of trolling them?

 

very lame and amateurish on your part. Reminds me of that Simpsons skit with Brockman... "President Reagan DIES......his hair"

I'm not lying am I. I'm not saying anything false. Something amateurish would be "Jagr asks for a trade" or something ridiculous like that.

Jagr asking for a trade would be an out and out lie.

 

You're telling a half truth and leaving out pertinent information in an attempt to rile people up for...I don't know what reason? Because you think a few more people would read the topic on a message board? You're not exactly getting paid for hits here....somehow you feel you're being clever throughout all this.

How is it a "half-truth". It's a full truth. He has retired. From international competition but he has retired. I'm not saying anything false in the title or body therefore this thread is completely valid. 100% legitimate. Knock the wording however you like but the title is just a juicier way of saying the full title. Nothing wrong here.

To be fair even if he did from all hockey at least it would be more understandable then the other guy's retirement.

No, you're leaving out a very important piece of information in order to appear clever. I can find out, from some source that Cory Schneider fell off his bike and wont ever ride a bicycle again. So I can post "Cory Schneider has retired" and then in the body define what he has retired from. It isn't cute or funny, it's stupid and a poor attempt at humor or shock attempt. Then I can hide behind the "well technically I wasn't lying" argument too.

 

There is enough room in the title to elaborate a little bit.

So you basically admit you're looking for attention.

 

Was the title false?  No.  Intentionally misleading?  Yes.  Especially since you only put one period at the end of the title as opposed to three or more when someone's clearly teasing more info.

Depending on timing and context, these kinds of troll topics can be funny. I found this one humorless and in poor choice.

Title is dumb. But Mazz got "hits" that don't matter so I guess that's cool.

It's amazing I have to explain this but you don't have to watch those videos if you don't want to (unless you have mean spirited friends who try to link you to them).  This site is sometimes moderated, so people can't just post that kind of thing on the site - they will be banned.  That's because people who run sites like this have decided that allowing that sort of thing just makes people upset and leads to them having a more negative impression of the site.  The same is true of intentionally misleading headlines.
