You're absolutely right. This message board has to try and be above garbage posts like that one . His post was disgusting and he owes an apology to this board and to Calpuck. I go over to the dark side(calpuke) once in a while and I don`t recall ever reading anything as bad as that.
You`re also right about the Flames they suck.
You are correct that I do owe an apology. Cornuck spoke to me about my comments as well, and I do think an apology is in order. Honestly - a lot of us older posters from the old CC have a bit of dark humor (as evidenced by the fact that both Topper and Strangelove were amused by my comments, combined with the fact that Blob McKenzie used the word "chink" in one of the game day threads, combined with rats19's use of the term, "retarded cousin fucker"), and so I was catering to that crowd with my comments.
However - this IS a different board and different audiences read our posts and so I should have taken that into account. My comments were purely meant for shits and giggles, and I have nothing but the utmost respect for minority hockey players. Being a minority myself, I, perhaps more than anyone, should be more careful and considerate with these types of comments.....even if they are meant to be in jest amongst my fellow "thick skinned" old school posters.
I sincerely apologize to Cornuck, OkCanuck, Canuckscorner, and anyone else that may have been offended by my comments.
Cheers, and go Canucks go!
RIP Creeper. You will be missed.
