Re: How about...gardening?

How about... Vegans have nor more respect for life than ominivores. Life is life man and any time you snuff out a life to feed your parasitic self it's a killing. Killing a carrot is like killing a cow!

Re: Summer Movies...what are you gonna see?

I'm really not a big comic book type guy and superheros are generally not particularly interesting, but I'm looking forward to the new Batman flick. I've enjoyed the more recent take on Batman (harsh whisper voice aside) because it goes to that darker sort of vision. I'm no expert on this, the only ...

How about...gardening?

So, I tried finding a controversial topic to post in, but I had no takers. So, there goes that avenue of amusement. How about something practical? I thought to myself, self, if nobody wants to once and for all settle the debate around socio-economic systems and varioius isms, why not see if you can ...

Re: Bald Ankles

Yeah totally agree. I have never seen the point of "not engaging after the play" if the opposition are taking liberties on your players during the regular season. It basically shows the rest of the league that it's open season on your top players. So what if a 5 minute major for beating the piss ou...

Re: NHL sends CBA termination notice!

If it weren't for unions you wouldn't have the weekend. Or overtime, or health and safety rules, rules against child labour, and pretty much every other right and benefit you have as a worker. Yes and millionaires need his sort of protection. Actually, what they need is protection from their own Al...

Re: NHL sends CBA termination notice!

Unions aren't only about pay. Unions also provide leverage to ensure that the working environment is safe for the workers. Unfortunately, the NHLPA has failed spectacularly in this regard; re: lobbying for more consistent and stringent refereeing to crack down on cheap shots, head shots, and intent...

Re: Could a "bottom up" approach version of Socialism work?

So, being new to this forum and all, I went looking for a something interesting to talk about (or maybe a pot to stir) and I came across this question. In reading the thread, however, I didn't come across a lot of answers. Ok, there were answers, but nothing particularly convincing. It seems mostly ...

Re: Offseason Wheelings and Dealings

While I certainly agree that I'd like to see more action from Gillis and it is unfortunate that Erhoff was lost for nothing, you must admit that Gillis is in a bit of tough position. If you believe, as many do, that the Canucks have a window over the next season or two in which they have the best sh...

Re: The mildly ridiculous trade proposals thread

If a team wants a player to waive his no trade clause, there are ways of 'encouraging' him to do so. The problem here is that proposing trades that are likely to ever happen is no fun because they are few and far between. Hence, the high number mildly (or insanely) ridiculous proposals, along with t...

Well, the rest is a closely guarded secret. I am a mystery, wrapped in an enigma, encased within a soft taco shell.

Re: The mildly ridiculous trade proposals thread

Bieksa just signed a long term contract with a movement clause. It's not about people thinking he is untouchable for some reason; it's just about Alex Edler being eminently tradeable and probably more valuable too. It's true that Bieksa has a no movement clause. I neglected to mention that, but hav...
