this guy is a classic piece of garbage..everyone knows it.


Yup, even his teammates hated him. In fact the only people that respect him are the douchiest of Ranger fans, and there aren't even that many of them.

In Topic: Brodeur retires, joins STL front office

27 January 2015 - 07:22 PM

Absolutely no issues with Marty working in the Blues front office, and frankly I'm a little nervous about him joining the Devils front office next year. We have no idea if he'd be any good at it, and if turns out that it doesn't suit him, it's that much more difficult for the team to admit it was a mistake. It's similar to doctors that won't operate on friends.

In Topic: Lou being sued

Cases in Federal court tend to move faster than in State court. That's why Plaintiffs choose Federal court some of the time.


Yeah, but it's virtually impossible to have a complaint dismissed in NJ state court, and much more likely to have summary judgment denied.

People assume that the Court can easily "throw out" a frivolous lawsuit, but it doesn't work that way. The Court first has to receive a motion to dismiss a case, and this is usually not done until after there is some discovery done, because you need to be able to prove its frivolous, the Court can't base a decision on you saying " it's obviously frivolous".

And that process can take months or years. And the folks who file frivolous lawsuits to harass people are well aware of this fact.


The plaintiff's lawyer probably made a mistake suing in federal court which tends to be tougher on plaintiffs than NJ state court. Good news is that all of the filings in federal court are available on line.

In Topic: 2015 ALL-STAR GAME

25 January 2015 - 12:40 AM

It could be a combination of things..... sports have certainly lost their innocence.....fans are more and more aware by the day how much the sport is business first then sport second, and that's soured people on things like this....add in sponsorships, overhype (for God's sake NFL MEDIA DAY has a goddamn sponsor now) and basic oversaturation of the product as a whole...the fun and the innocence are gone from all these events, and I don't think its coming back.....


That's possible, although maybe all star games are just for the kids to begin with. Or maybe what Jerry Seinfeld said is correct that all we're really doing is rooting for the laundry, and the individual players don't matter as much.
