At least comedy is something El Chico enjoys and can put up with studying for a year or however long. The writing thing matters on the subject. Enough about my career and life path. Derek has a schedule thing to get working on.

I have heard mulitple times [that Marty's] a prick to fans.

Is this true? Is this the consensus on the board? Just curious.

El Chico thinks that Chico is a different Chico. El Chico never calls himself Chico, always Chico. El Chico has never seen and Marx Brothers movies, El Chico assumes the other Chico has since Chico is in the movie.

(wow, that's 10 chico's)

(now 11!)

About Marty and fans - you gotta remember, just because he didn't sign some kid's puck doesn't make him a jerk. Maybe he had somewhere to be. Players don't have to be on call to give signatures 24 hours a day. Sometimes they need to pick up their kids, make a quick trip to the grocery store - sometimes they don't like to be bothered.

This is what I heard about Marty, a consensus from many people. Sometimes he refuses to sign stuff or asks for little attention just because he's in a rush or something. I think that's fine.

I have heard that the majority of time he is very nice to fans. He has been extremely nice to my next-door neighbor, a young, physically-challenged, hardcore Devils fan. He plays sled hockey and once played at Smith Mountain Arena. The Devils were finishing up practice when he got there and he kept yelling his praises to Marty. After they finished, Marty went out of his way to my neighbor and gave him his stick (later he autographed it). He also sat down with my neighbor for a local news interview about sled hockey. They asked my neighbor if he could score on Marty and he said, "Of course." Marty just sat there and smiled, saying, "He probably could."

With stories like that, and that's not the only one, it's hard to imagine him not being a great guy. Maybe he's not the nicest 100% of the time, but that's not expected, at least not from me. If I saw him at a grocery store and he wanted to be left alone, I'd respect that.

El Chico has met Marty twice. The first time was on Route 23 and it was an appearance so he had to sign. The second time was after a practice at the CAA and we parked kind of close to were he was parked. He came out of the entrance between Gate B and C and El Chico asked politely and nicely (El Chico can be nice, lol) and he agreed and signed everything El Chico had (4 jerseys and a puck) even though he was with his father and they were about to leave. Marty got a kick out of the fact that we had brought our dog in the car and my dog was sticking his head out the window. He was very nice both times. And these kids and people gotta understand, these players are doing you a favor by signing an autograph and they are not here to serve you. In El Chico's opinion you have to be retarded to walk up to a player in a place where they are not obliged to sign anything and go "Marty, sign this" Look at the championship DVD, Stevens was nice enough to stop where the Devils come out and sign a few autographs and right away, they start harrasing him and one kid is like "CAN I HAVE YOUR STICK?" LOL, WTF is that?

From what I hear he's like a normal person with good days and bad days but generally pretty easy going.

Having been in the same room as Brodeur I find him far more accessable than most sports stars (read Scott Stevens). (FYI: I'm SHY - I didn't even acknowledge his existance) So then it stands to reason, if you're out and about more in the world, naturally there's more of a chance for you to inadvertantly be a butthead to someone

SHEEPS: A thesis on comedy would be so awesome! I find comedy to be a major marker for intellegence -- especially the Marx Brothers! What about a thesis on the comedy in the writings of Martin Luther? I was thinking about what a total brilliant fvck up he was after seeing a PBS special on his life. Has anyone's writings brought about so much anger and hatred -- and yet he could be so funny when editorializing on someone. Nowhere is there a clearer example of how distructive humor at the expens :mellow: uh oh I'm rambling again... anyhow I was thinking how if Martin Luther had had a hockey message board to go off on the world would be a few mass riots/murders shorter - he just needed somewhere else to focus his anger rather than religion and politics!

:mellow: But this thread is about Martin Brodeur isn't it? sort of.. :huh:

It's SUNDAY! I always think too much on a day of rest...think I'll clean the house instead .. so...
Nevermind :evil:

Give Marty a break.

Marty has a lot on his mind give him a break his sister-in-law, his mother-in-law and maybe his brother-in-law.

We talked about everything from Marty to how Montreal is. It was SO awesome. They were drinking, but I didn't drink anything. They were all drunk but that's as far as I'm going to go. I will not leak out anything she said because I don't want what she said to fall into the wrong hands. I think that would be extremely disrespectful of me.

Hey man, what's up with the tease? :angry: :P

Shoulda made something up! :D

I only met Marty once but he was very nice to me--didn't want to ask him for pics and to sign something so I got my pic with him and he was very kind while we chatted briefly. I agree with Sheeps, they are not on call 24/7 and I think maybe some days it's just alot.

I'd be wary if I were Melanine to be talking to complete strangers, let alone fans about Marty but maybe it was the booze. Hopefully she'll enjoy her stay there with the kids and try to get back to having a normal life, both of them.

I've heard some people think he's mean to fans, but I've met him twice and he was nothing like that. He was nice both times, but the second time he was very friendly to everyone. Brodeur smiled most of the time and acted like he liked to sign autographs and pose for pictures with people (I took a great one of him and my friend that day).

You know not to defend either but I'm sure she
wants the outlet too.. and hopefully Jay's not
like me who does nothing but wear Devils
jerseys 24/7 or something like that and he
comes off a less intimidating as I seem to come
off for some reason, more power to her for
doing it... and I also agree with Jay.... it's not
exactly something I'd stick in the recaps either
it is a tough call though.....

That was extremely rude of that kid. I couldn't believe he was so demanding about it but it's no reason for a player to be rude to the rest of the fans who are mostly good natured people. In that situation Stevens should have given the stick to some stranger next to that kid just to teach him a lesson.

Yeah but then all the people around Stevens
would go "what an ass he is for doing that"
sometimes you just gotta walk away...

I will still never forget Holik once tear assing out

little kids in his way... classic nice guy act form
the guy who kicked at me from next to the
glass in Ottawa :)
