For all we know Media_Man could BE *shudder* ....Gallagher :shock:

either that or Dan Murphy :D


'Media Man' isn't Dan Murphy....or Tony Gallagher. 'Media Man' also isn't Jay Janower or Rick Ball. I do know he graduated from BCIT a few years after some of the guys I just mentioned (and yes, Tony graduated a few decades earlier from UBC, though I do believe 'Media Man' went there too).

We haven't seen 'Media Man' on here in a while. Maybe he's too busy....or has his own online soapbox:)

Although the notion of the Sedins being in the doghouse is obviously stupid, there is no doubt that they were and have tired as games have worn on. Although the Sedins are extremely talented they are still quite slow, that means that just keeping up in the new NHL is going to be a significant hardship for them.

As for Vers hate of the media you have to keep in mind hes the kind of guy that thinks the media is controlled by commie pinko fags that are part of the vast left wing plot to take over the world. So don't take his rants to seriously.

With this city being as Canuck-Crazy as it is, it's gotta be tough for these media people to come up with stories 365 days of the year. I bet most of them get tired of writing/talking about the Canucks and nothing else
I know it turns me off and I limit my intake while the sports media do not have that option.

Also lets not forget that the province is a tabloid, therefore their writing is naturally going to be more sensationalistic and trashy

If serious unbiased writing is what you crave I suggest sticking to a few blog's like Tom Benjamin or some of the links on the right hand side of his main page
