Well the only logical explanation is bad luck or something unforeseen.  In other words, there is no logical explanation at all.  And the goaltending has been part of the problem, and even you have criticized Schneider for it.

 

I've criticized CS because he hasn't been good at one on one, period. He also hasn't had any goal support in the SO, either, just like Brodeur. As a goaltender, who the hell can win a SO when your team scores ONE goal the whole season?

 

You're doing it again, Mike. You say goaltending is a problem, then say you aren't actually blaming the goaltenders, then you go back to saying the goaltending is part of the problem. I'm being nice here, but this is why members like CR and DM84 get frustrated. This isn't about someone misunderstanding you.

Blaming the goalies and saying they're part of the problem isn't the same thing.

He's been on this for seven years. Including the last Olympics. Seems highly. Its been a proved by three countries (US, Canada, Sweden) including his dosage given his metabolism. I sincerely doubt what you said.

I'm not on either side here, but I can't honestly see how you find this to be unreasonable. I'm not entirely sure you have a firm grasp on the term "semantics".

Are you suggesting Backstrom is using Claritin as a performance enhancer?

I doubt backstrom was taking it as a "performance enhancer"- although I suppose you could argue it helps his allergies and thus makes him feel better to play.

Whether the Swedish team or nhl allows it is irrelevant. If I were Sweden I would have a problem if the report is accurate that they knew 2 days prior but didn't tell them. I'd also like to know why they didn't catch it earlier- wouldn't they test all athletes at the beginning of the games? Or maybe he was under the allowable limit then.

The one that still annoys me is when dm84 tried to get on my case because I said attendance RANKINGS don't mean anything to me.  See I do care about the Devils attendance.  I don't care about where we rank in relation to the rest of league because even if we sell out every game, we won't be higher than like 17th or something in the league.

 

There's too many variables when it comes to attendance figures.  Unless the league can come up with a ranking system that eliminates all of those variables, I don't care where we rank.

 

I'm not entirely sure you understand Mike Brown. 


 

It's ridiculous.

 

Except there is a significant difference between the two phrases.

 

Should people need to be lawyers to understand you?

 

No, but if you go into court assuming certain phrases or terms mean the same thing, you'll get blown apart in court.

dm84 is usually just that.

is it true or not true that Claritin may or may not contain the stimulant psuedoephedrine and or androgenic steroids including testosterone as well as the neurotransmitter epinephrine adrenalin.

And so does zyrtec, and Allegra. Tbags pointless as I stated. He's been taking this for seven years. He has a legitimate reason for it.

I haven't mentioned you or directed anything towards you on here in almost three days and now this?

Just stop your crap already and stop involving me when you get called out by other people. It's clearly not just me who has an issue with you.

You're the only one who continues to be a dick about it though.  Others actually have actually spoken to me about it peacefully.

Again I haven't said anything to you in almost three days and you start taking jabs at me in a conversation I wasn't even a part of.

Grow up.
