So on the eve of the gold medal game, Torts comes out and slams Team Canada saying he doesn't give a "sh--" about them and he hopes Sweden wins.

Sometimes, Torts just seems kind of dumb. Why say something like that when 99.9999% of the Canuck fan base is cheering for Team Canada?

:lol:

Yeah, Torts saying he cares about his players more than the teams is really provocative. What are Canucks fans going to think about the fact that he cares about Canuck players?

Yes, he just said Luongo and Hamhuis aren't really playing, so he wants Edler and Sedin to have great games, get some confidence, and he doesn't give a shit about Canada winning...he wants his players to succeed, get confidence, to help his team. If he said the reverse, I want Canada to win, even if it means Edler and Sedin don't play well...that would be a problem to me. And I'll even echo his thoughts, as a Canadian, I don't give a shit really about Canada either, would rather see the Canucks win the Cup...not that I'm holding my breath in the near term. :(

It is not what he said but how and as I have said many times, sports is 24/7 so little things are always made bigger just to sell advertising.

This seems like a completely circular argument that (unless I am misreading you) serves no purpose other than justifying getting worked up about something nobody should care about.

Exactly.
