Considering our three Stanley Cups I would think the Devils deserve to be 6th or 7th. Yet we rank 9th in the ranking Best NFL franchise ever on rankopedia. Go figure...

This person only has three posts on this board, and they're all related to this rankopedia website. I'm starting to wonder if his only purpose here is to advertise said site...

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Man what's the harm? So it's spam --- it's well thought out spam and inspires conversation - so his site benefits from the hits - we're still having fun with it right? you all even had the fun of uncovering his spamming!

Like with the Music Man - if you benefit from a con, is it really a con?

It would be nice if the poster joined in a little more -- said he/she wasn't a hockey fan or was a sports nut or knew Derek or whatever - however s/he found the place :noclue:

well it's a bit annoying but it's just DAMN RUDE
how do you expect people to take your stuff seriously if it's all you talk about

you don't walk into someone's house drag your dirty shoes all over their carpet and walk to the fridge and eat/drink the damn clean without saying hello first (ok, maybe Mike does but whatever :P)

there's a level of manners to be followed first and foremosy

like TAKING OFF YOUR DAMN SHOES WHEN YOU WALK INTO MY HOUSE :rant:

I question the Sens at 13, considering that they have yet to win anything, and St. Louis, which made the playoffs something like 20+ years straight. No, the Blues didn't get far, but making the cut is means that they are at least above average.

16 of 30 teams make the playoffs, so one team logically has to be below average each year. :P
