Yeah, I see that now.. not too many guys like that were earning $2m per right after the lockout. Smooth move, Burkie..

There was no sarcasm in that post.


Well I guess the good thing about you telling me what I intended when I wrote a post, is that your expertise in that area easily matches your expertise on anything else you write about here..

Careful, you may hit someone with your backtracking.

:lol: Yup, I am backpedaling hard to distance myself from that absurd position I definitely, genuinely held.

Good job defending the honour and integrity of some guy who for a few years ran the hockey team you cheer for! The state of discourse on this board is richer for your complete inability to recognize anything beyond straightforward declarations of fact.

Seriously, this is what this board has come to? That qualifies as a burn?

Agreed with Vader.

It's ok when we throw jabs at one another every once in awhile, but it's best not to overdo it. Particularly on this forum where Cornuck/Brian want us to conduct ourselves in a certain way. Guys like Topper and Blob obviously say some colorful things on here, but they say it well within limits. For every colorful/on-the-line comment they make, they make like 5-6 good hockey posts/thoughts.

Last thing we want is to deteroriate the quality of the forum with comments such as mathonwy's.

Thanks for being the sound board of reason Brown Knight. Whatever would we do with out you?

Maybe you should apply to be a mod here?

You DO realize that out of every 20 posts RD makes, only 1 or 2 are actually legitimate? Every other post is a troll post of some sort.

What is the point of this idiotic post? Might as well start saying, too bad we didn't draft Jagr. Life would be so different now.

And if you want to talk about colorful comments. Is racist and homophobic comments colorful enough for you?

Before you start judging others from your padel stool, take your head out of your ass and get some perspective first.

Please look at the standings.


BigTuna,

For the most part, despite you being a Leafs fan on here, I think your posts for the most part have been pretty good.

However - it's shit like this which is a little unbecoming.

You say 'look at the standings', but the truth of the matter is that the Leafs are still not quite an elite team. They're Top 10, but still not elite.

It's ok to be proud of your team and be optimistic of the promise that they have (and the Leafs have certainly earned that), but I just think it's better to be humble and cautiously optimistic at this point if I were a Leafs fan. At the end of the day, you guys haven't won a playoff series in about 11-12 years if I recall correctly, while you are attempting to "look down" on a Canucks core' that has been extremely successful from 2008-2012 (i.e. achieved everything under the sun except for a Stanley Cup).

Leafs have a shot of possibly doing something, but that's all it is..............a shot. Let them get results first, and then you may freely conduct yourself on here with arrogance.

If you don't like the guy, ignore him. Period.

RD is a huge Canucks fan.

He's clearly just messing with guys like you.

I've also never seen him attack someone in a personal way on here.

RD is terrific for the boards.

While I usually consider TBK's posts as coming from a juvenile sychophant, this time I have to agree (mostly). If you don't like RD just opt to have his posts ignored so you don't see them. When he does make a rational hockey post, where he isn't frothing at the mouth like a rabid dog hot on Gillis' arse, the guy actually contributes something worth reading. In those cases you'll surely see it quoted in someone's reply and you can read it too.

And sometimes even his trollish remarks are fun to respond to when you catch while perusing the threads without logging in.....and when you engage for a bit, and finally have had enough, just ask him to back his shit up and he generally goes away in a hurry.

Where I disagree is that he is terrific for the boards. He's not terrible for them, but to the casual observer, or potential new member just checking things out, he often brings the level of conversation down to that of bountiful with his irrational rants that consistently contradict his previous opinions.

RD continues to be one of my favourite posters on the board.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

RD has been right about quite a bit actually...

He's been calling out Gillis for years and only now is everyone catching up...including myself.

When I see comments unread in the search feature, my favorite 3 assholes to read first are topps, docster and the dude....

That said they are all still assholes :scowl:
