Well, that’s about as bad as it could have been (outside of maybe, Jack, Nico, or Dougie).

You’d think a guy that had a really severe case of covid that knocked him on his ass for almost a month would be smarter than that…

There are a large percentage of anti-vax people who had it, beat it, and say “well I had it and it wasn’t a big deal” or “I can’t get it again, I have antibodies”.

And there’s people like Stalock in Detroit who might miss the season with a heart condition from getting Covid back in November. Crazy how this got so messed up

To be clear, I wasn’t saying those people were correct.

I know, right?! But if we’ve learned one thing these past eighteen months, you can’t underestimate the power of being stupid.

Blackwood also had an autograph signing the other day and took pictures with fans right next to them. Makes absolutely no sense to be doing that right before training camp either. 

I'd say I'm surprised the front office even allowed it but our front office has been an absolute embarrassment in how they have handled everything lately off the ice.

Of course if it’s Blackwood I’m disappointed, pretty close to a worst-case scenario. Seeing the stuff he follows on instagram is pretty gross. 

I’m also incredibly disappointed in Masisak… he reported the roster was fully vaccinated. Then doubled down and said that the unvaccinated player was NOT on the active roster. And now has changed his tune without tweeting out an apology to his readers for sloppy, second-rate reporting?

As Brodeur showed us, you can root for the player without rooting for the person (who is kind of icky). It upsets me to see some of the accounts Blackwood follows but then I remember Brodeur follows way, way worse. 

Go Devils and all that, but I don’t think I’ll be sprinting to buy a blackwood jersey any time soon.

Wouldn’t blackwood have a seriously legitimate chance at being one of the 3 goalies on team canada? 

imagine throwing away an olympic dream because you’re a mouth breathing sheep? jesus christ.

Didn't know that about Marty but he's also not on the team right now and his career is long over so that makes it a lot easier too. 

A lot of these things is also why I just wear a blank jersey, don't have to worry about the stupid sh!t the player can possibly do or if he sucks or gets traded. I've always been more of a logo on the front over the name on the back guy anyway.

I’m completely fine with separating the art from the artist and all that, but this is a little different. Blackwood is part of a team, and his actions (or in this case lack of action) is going to hurt his entire team. Not only is it stupid, it’s selfish. If I was one of his teammates I’d be pretty annoyed with him right now.

Two years in a row with goalie drama before the season even starts. Ugh

Who does Brodeur follow that is worse than Project Veritas, Bongino and Charlie Kirk?

 

Yuck, nevermind, looked at his twitter follows.  Not a pleasant list.

Agreed, I thought the Athletic was supposed to give you better reporting for the privilege of paying for it?  

re: Marty, I’m glad Twitter and social media wasn’t around then, or at least wasn’t as omnipresent. I didn’t even know about his ‘media follows’ till seeing it referenced on the interwebs. Generally sometimes I think we’re better off going back to when we didn’t know sh!t about these guys off the field. Of course you take the good with the bad though, a lot of people use their louder megaphones for more humanitarian and smarter purposes too.

The fact that me, Mr Joe Blow on njdevs, has better sources than a guy who gets paid to report on things like this is telling.

I should start my own hockey rumors onlyfans to make some extra money.

If you start giving out hockey rumors with risqué photos i think you’ve found an untapped niche and I will be your first follow.
