No one knows for sure but...

I'm guessing his mind was blown by the number of schmucks who couldn't wrap their heads around his schtick!

Either that or he is presently housed in a facility for the criminally insane...

How many of us just doesn't care about the Canucks like we used to?

Still watch a lot but really I am done with all the vets and want a new team to get excited about.

Also just have a sour taste in my mouth still left over from the SC loss.

It's interesting to see how much people invest into a notion about who they think they are, or who we think others are. Truth is, you as a 'Dr S' handle are no more or less than anyone else in this poster world, as is your revered Rumsfeld.... no greater or lesser than a 'mere' Ster or anyone else.
*sigh*

Should have known a ster would only hear whoosh. :roll:

Should have known a ster would have missed that "Rumsfeld" is a character created by Jovatuzzi.

See Jovatuzzi, much like yourself, posted solely as his IRL self, sticking mostly with straight hockeytalk.

(might just as well called himself Jovster)

For years.

And then... suddenly... he had an epiphany!

YOU asked the question: "Why would a person choose a handle like 'Rumsfeld'"?

Do you think poster Rumsfeld talks to people IRL the way he does strangers online?

Did you think he wears a Donald Rumsfeld mask around town? :look:

NEWS FLASH: There's a whole world of fun whooshing around just over your head!

That's the problem with sters...

I recall a few years ago putting it out there for people to meet as real people at the Penticton young all-stars tournament - not a single taker... not one. Don't know about you, but I found that to be bizarre. My perception of canucks corner and the personalities that exist here, shifted.
Your problem is that you can't separate the real world from a fucking Canucks message board.

No one... these days... is looking for real-life friends on a fucking Canucks message board.

I think you're mistaking much of the "banter and ribbing" for "hard-core pissing contests".

whoosh

Very seldom does anyone here actually engage in "hard-core pissing contests"

And the ones that do... don't tend to last long.

For example I consider Blob as knowledgeable/awesome/fun as it gets around here

... and he knows I feel this way.

Is any of this getting through? :hmmm:

... By the way, good Dr., I meant to offer you a compliment: You sir are blessed with an amazing ability to find facts and research your arguments - there's little doubt about the validity of the points you make , you've corrected me more than once over the years - well done!

Cheers, Stu
Thanks Stuster, it's important to keep our hockey facts straight

... but I wouldn't be here if it weren't for that whole world of fun you seem to be missing out on. :(
Yes there are definite advantages to forums like these all right.
When you come across some nutter acting out delusions of grandeur, there's no need to cross the street. :)

I still love the team Reef even though I'm baffled by management and several of their moves.

Don't look now but the team is changing and it is getting younger. I'm doubtful that they have enough good young pieces moving forward but they are getting younger, it is transitioning and it is different. They are going to need a big step forward from three or four of Baertschi, Horvat, Gudbranson , Hutton, Virtanen, Tryamkin, Markstrom to have any hope of competing next season or the year after.

Some people are more committed.

Others need help to be committed.

Not to mention any delusions in particular.

PS: 20 yrs, ..... I'm impressed. :thumbs:

I think Arthur disappeared over at central before the migration didn't he ?

Years ago he came over here for a while when he got censored over there but then he went back over there when some posters had a beef with him here. Funny motherfucker he was though. The rug rider who tried to be him two summers ago was a cheap imitation at best.

As an ASSIDE there is a profile of a poster named Thinker on a tv uk forum. He was heavy into the AV that's for sure. He would sure liven this place up if he did return.
