Looks like those of you who think you're in a silent, enlightened minority aren't really, are you?
For all that think saying "I'm not saying it's OK to ____, but ..." justifies your writing such hateful things, we all understand that "but" means actually, that's exactly what you are saying, and exactly what you mean.
I'm sure your mother and sisters are proud to know you and proud to have helped shape your views on women.
This thread is a low point in njdevs.com history.
If this is directed at me, you couldn't be more wrong about anything I posted. I am not a hateful person at all and I am married with a 5-year-old daughter. I would never lay a hand on either of them.
Yes, there are men who are absolute scum, who strike their wives or girlfriends without mercy or warning, for anything and everything. Those people are as rotten as it gets. There is no justifying such behavior, EVER. There are also WOMEN who think they can slap men whenever they're feeling emotional or angry. That is also wrong.
But part of what I was going for was that there's a big difference between a guy like I just described, and the guy who, one day, ONCE, in the heat of the moment, during a massive argument where perhaps the woman strikes him FIRST, and possibly MULTIPLE times, if he does nothing more in the act of self-defense than push her away or likely strike her, but yet it leaves a mark, this guy who has NEVER once committed an act of violence towards women in his life is now branded a woman-beater. And I think this is a bit unfair, especially since these incidents all have a way of being lumped together, when it comes to males.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
