In Topic: Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

27 January 2015 - 04:07 PM

Why in the HELL are people all bet out of shape that a guy with ZERO front office experience took a job in St Louis that he's probably not even qualifed for outside of name recongition??

 

I don't get it....let him cut his teeth elsewhere....there's a LIST of great players who stunk in the front office after their career....there's no proof he'll go either way on this

....not to buck the trend here (I've gone to a few PWS shows, and once they stopped working with the local rappers, I've had no complaints about the shows, I do need to go more!)

 

but man how great was it to see Phily crap all over that hot garbage the WWE tried to shove down our throats last night?? They wanted NO PART of "oh just throw the Rock out there and the sheep will be happy" .... um.....NO!!

I find facebook very useful for keeping in touch with friends and planning hockey stuff, but I WILL NEVER #ThatIAmWatchingSomeTVShowOrSportingEventEVER :P

In Topic: 2015 ALL-STAR GAME

I have to disagree that it is the sponsorships that are taking away from the event. As I said, it's the gimmicky events that are killing it for me. The silly breakaway challenge, the stupid trick shot thing, and the absence of some of the game's top players have all combined to turn the thing into a dud.

 

Also you originally said, "these skills comp events just seemed a LOT more fun a whole bunch of years ago before NBC got involved and they tried to push too hard for "creativity" and stuff like that, that breakaway even was a thing of painful to watch..." That seems to me like your issue is with the dumb events. But than you replied to me that it isn't, so I am left a little confused.

 

 

It's a combination of things, the second comment was more me thinking deeper into why it didn't seem fun to me this year

having to hear buffoons like Roenick and McGuire all night doesn't help either, why is NBC incapable of hiring good, interesting sports people for ANY event? They either find excessive blowhards who never won in their sport (Mlibury, Roenick, Matt Millen) .....or tiny annoying gnats (McGuire, Bob Costas)....this is the first time in years I was home and watched the thing....it felt more like a chore and I stuck with it since nothing else was on TV as opposed to enjoying the event

 

I think it would be cool if every team did their own individual skills competition during the break. I'd like to know how hard Gelinas' slap shot is and who our fastest skater is.

 

They USED to....I think a few times like Montreal might still do so....I guess lack of attendance to the events killed the idea....
