#1295574 KHL Collapse?

Posted by oofrostonoo on 16 December 2014 - 01:35 PM

It seems as if the KHL is in pretty big trouble.  Many teams were already having financial problems, but in the past year (and specifically the past 2 weeks), the Ruble has crashed and the energy sector which subsidizes much of the league is in big trouble.  


Kovy signed his contract with the Ruble valued at .33 to 1 USD, now it's .14 to 1 USD.  I'm not sure the "tax-free" aspect of that contract matters much now.


James Mirtle has been tweeting about the subject, saying many players haven't been paid, and although some contracts are protected to currency devaluation, if the teams don't have to money to pay, it won't matter much.




It could be an interesting rest of the season over there.

#1233392 Stadium Series Game: Are you going?

Posted by oofrostonoo on 19 December 2013 - 11:57 AM

As far as the cold... as long as you're dressed appropriately it shouldn't be an issue.

What scared me away was the Yankee's seat previewer.  You can see what your view would look like form your seat online, and the majority of the view's I saw from seats I could get were so low to the ground you wouldn't be able to see anything.

This game seems like a great headline for the NHL... a game from world famous Yankee Stadium, but as far as I'm concerned the fan's are just a prop for TV.


I almost wish the Devils got it in 2015 so they could play it in Met Life Stadium.  There is much more upper deck there where sight lines would be good (still far away, but at least you can see the entire sheet of ice.

#1213661 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by oofrostonoo on 04 October 2013 - 11:51 PM

No but they are a very, VERY small percentage. That's the thing. We don't live in a "make everyone happy" world. It's majority rules.

a lot of people don't yell it. You can't quantify a group of people not yelling.

#1213612 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by oofrostonoo on 04 October 2013 - 11:09 PM

Yelling "You Suck" after scoring a goal isn't offensive because "suck" is a bad word. It is offensive because it's not creative, not funny, low class and ends up being yelled regardless if we're winning or not.

This dumb chant makes me think our fan base has a bunch of people like this in the stands. http://i3.kym-cdn.co...294/980/6b5.jpg

Celebrate the goal with the team, cheer them on. R&R pt 2 was a great goal song but "you suck" is why we can't have nice things.

Chant Lundqvist sucks or Flyers suck all you want, but try not to celebrate a goal like an idiot just because there is a mob doing it.

#1156289 Election Night Coverage (radio)

Posted by oofrostonoo on 10 November 2012 - 02:39 PM

I was shocked that Obama won this election. I give a lot of credit to the boot-licking mainstream media, which has taken orders from the White House the last four years. It's a scandal.

Obama and Harry Reid's olive branch after the election was such a crock after the dirty campaign that they ran. The Bain Capital ads that attacked Romney's character, Reid's unfounded accusation of Romney being a tax cheat ... those two can go fvck themselves. I have never seen anything like it. It made swiftboating look like a sea cruise.

You were really shocked? Honest question... were you mostly watching FoxNews and reading Drudge for your information? If so I guess I can see why you would be shocked. Drudge constantly cherry picked the most favorable outlying polls as evidence of a Romney lead. This is not a great way to be well informed.

The FACT is that Obama led in almost every swing state poll for the entire campaign... even after the first debate. The data is online, you can look it up!

And the Bain Capital attacks were started in the primaries by other Republicans!

Sheldon Adelson financed a 30 minute documentary when he was supporting Newt that covered ROMNEY's time at Bain, and how he was a corporate raider. Then he dumped tens of millions to support Romney once Newt dropped out... Who swift boated who?

I can't wrap my brain around this delusion.

#1155757 Hurricane Sandy

Posted by oofrostonoo on 02 November 2012 - 08:26 AM

For fear of making this thing political, this doesn't have anything to do with global warming. The area has had more powerful storms in the past.

I'm pretty sure we haven't had more powerful storms in the past. The previous record for a surge brought by a storm was 11 feet set in 1821. This one was over 13.

So by that wouldn't you say this storm was bigger than any storm ever recorded in the area...

#1152416 Presidential Election Poll

Posted by oofrostonoo on 26 September 2012 - 09:36 AM

It's impossible to leave those programs untouched. US unfunded liabilities is at ~$120 trillion dollars or ~$1 million per taxpayer. No amount of taxing is going to fix those, the programs have to be changed.

Yeah i totally agree. I'm just saying Mitt won't say he will do anything to the things that will actually reduce the deficit. The only cuts I hear are for education, the EPA, Planned Parenthood, NPR... stuff that is such a tiny part of the budget that it does nothing but screw over a few people and cause collateral damage.

#1151494 Romney on the 47%

Posted by oofrostonoo on 19 September 2012 - 12:06 AM

Do yourselves a favor and check out 2016: Obama's America.

The stuff on there is what the media SHOULD be showing, just like Romney's religion is shoved down our throats.

Romney's religion is being shoved down your throat? What do you mean?

30% of Republicans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. That is delusional and quite frankly sad.

Who cares if Romney is Mormon. They seem to be moral people with good families for the most part. I mean when you look at the specifics of Mormonism it's insane (although all religions are kind of crazy when you look at the details and actually read the books).

I don't believe that in Romney's heart he thinks that he'll rule a planet with his family after he dies. I don't think he believes that god lives in our galaxy on the planet Kolob. Maybeeeeee he believes the Native Americans are the lost tribe of Israel and the Garden of Eden was in Missouri.

#1151381 Romney on the 47%

Posted by oofrostonoo on 18 September 2012 - 01:29 PM

Squishy, you are clearly forgetting the Fox News leads in CABLE news, their rating have yet to touch the "Big 3" who are clearly controlled by and advocate for the left, as they have done for decades.

What does leading in cable news have to do with anything? They have a market and they play to it at the expense of objective and constructive journalism.

I turned on Fox last night to see how they would react to the story and Greta briefly touched on it saying "So apparently there is a new video, I'm not sure I haven't seen it, where Mitt Romney says Americans are dependent on Government"... Completely avoiding the actual reason why the video is getting attention. Then she switched back to the Fox News coverage of "Obama lets American's die in the Middle East" coverage.

Collect data... reach a conclusion.

Have a conclusion, find data.

There is a difference.

#784587 PEW Research: Only 6% of Scientists are Republican

Maybe it's just because they are intelligent. Doesn't have to be an secret motive. :P

#782598 PEW Research: Only 6% of Scientists are Republican

Posted by oofrostonoo on 10 July 2009 - 02:52 PM

And we wonder why they all lie about "Global Warming"

Are they liberals first or are they scientists first?

Some how I think they would rather put out legitimate work than contribute to a liberal conspiracy.

Jimmy I'm sure you've researched data regarding Global Warming; have any scientific or intelligent reason why it is false? What is accelerating the depletion of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere to keep pace with the exponential increases in their production over the past 100 years? Have any information on that and maybe I'd be able to take the "other" side of this issue seriously. For now I guess the proof lies in anecdotal snowstorms highlighted on drudge report and that entirely credible petition of scientists who doubt warming.
