#1056671 Philadelphia Flyers Fans Boo Anti-Cancer Ad Featuring Rival Players

Posted by DaneykoIsGod on 14 October 2011 - 07:40 PM

Booing santa, now that's just plain wrong. I can only imagine all the kids that must've went home crying that day.


It being Philly, the kids were all probably too drunk to care.

Ah, that's so lame. Such a shame that it would get used like that. Oh well. Thanks for the insight.

It may have just gone un-noticed. :noclue:

If there's debate on turning it back on, I'm in favor. Though, from the looks of how much use it got, it doesn't look like many others would be too. And that's fine.

I guess this little feature failed its trial run?

At times, it really seemed like I was one of maybe two or three people actually using it, but I liked it. It was a way to +1 someone without taking up an entire post to write "+1". But, at the same time, it didn't seem to be catching on.

Anyway, it was fun while it lasted ...

#988820 Brian Rolston appreciation thread

Posted by DaneykoIsGod on 09 February 2011 - 12:29 PM

And once again, you make a claim about something I supposedly said with no quote to back it up. I am done with having words put in my mouth so please just drop it.


Your very first post in this thread:

You picked probably the least-liked Devils over the past two seasons to appreciate, what did you expect? Did you expect everyone to suddenly be in love with the guy after 10 decent games? You can't just forget about the 150+ mediocre-to-very poor games he played before that. Obviously everyone wants him to continue to be successful, but I'm not surprised that few people are ready to bow down to him after what a disappointment he's been during 95% of his games played here.


And that, my friend, is defending the naysayers, the thing Rowdy said you did and you claimed he put words in your mouth.


Rowdy's 100% right that an appreciation thread really isn't the appropriate place for naysaying. It's like giving a eulogy at a funeral saying that the departed was an @sshole. The speaker may be speaking the truth, but it still isn't the proper forum for such sentiments and the speaker will get grief for it. What you did is basically the equivalent of saying, "The speaker wasn't lying, this dead guy really was an @sshole!" And you're allowed to do that, but you should expect to catch the same grief as the person who gave the eulogy.

It's just etiquette. Almost every single other thread on this board has, at one point or another, devolved into Rolston-bashing at some point, and deservedly so. Is it too much to ask to keep that kind of negativity out of a thread intended to be positive? Hell, that's why I kept my distance from the Langenbrunner appreciation thread. If you don't have anything nice to say ...


Are we ready for that group hug yet?

#988058 DUCKS SIGN EMERY TO ONE-YEAR, TWO-WAY CONTRACT

I wonder if Garth Snow will give it another shot? :evil:


If he wants a goalie who can actually fight, he will.

#983890 Devils' revival may silence Arnott trade talk

Posted by DaneykoIsGod on 25 January 2011 - 08:30 AM

"I had no problem with [Langenbrunner]," Lemaire said. "That [trade] was the boss. I even told Lou that Jamie's attitude was much, much better than it was last year."


In other words, he stopped pooping on the carpet but still occasionally chewed up Lemaire's slippers.

The GM said he and his team never threw in the towel on this season to concentrate on improving for next year and beyond.

"We would never have said that, ever, even the way we were playing," Lamoriello said. "Unless you play to the best of your abilities and do everything you can to win, you're not a professional."


In Lou We Trust.

#983679 How many mistakes can you find in this picture?

Posted by DaneykoIsGod on 24 January 2011 - 01:24 PM

The photo on the left is of what appears to be a person. I always though this "Lundqvist" was a brand of goalie pads that had become self-aware.

I like yoga. Preferably the kind that's already mixed, though. Not a fan of the fruit-on-the-bottom stuff.

#976430 Anyone see Bettman at the game tonight?

We're all forgetting about Bettman's greatest achievement as commish: Helping children learn how to count on Sesame Street.

#973546 Rolston

Posted by DaneykoIsGod on 29 December 2010 - 02:44 PM

I still can't get over how Ilya Kovalchuk ruined Brian Rolston's career. I mean Brian was living up to every $ in his contract for a year and a half before Ilya was traded to this team. He's gone downhill ever since.

Now don't get me started on how Ilya has ruined Matt Corrente's development...


Little known fact: Kovalchuk and Lemaire were the extra shooters on the grassy knoll. Lemaire, of course, used mind bullets.
