"I have gone naked because it's the way to raise awareness of our rights for example the bicycle lanes that are never free, there are always taxis parked, police sleeping," protester Milagro Esquivel told the Reuters news agency.

Blake and Matt are so polite with D. Sedin when he is actually on the air with them, I mean compared to how they speak about him when he's not around.

I found this somewhat disturbing, as it was brought to my attention by a Leafs fan: Globe and Mail: Vancouver Fans Start To Panic

Then I was particularly disturbed to see the author (David Ebner, some recent transplant from Calgary) cites all of one blog post on THIS SITE as sourcing for his headline. The blog post, by the way, says there is a "mild form of 'controlled' panic" in Vancouver, but the main point is everyone just wants to get to the playoffs already.

So now I'm pissed off because a national newspaper is going out of its way to paint Vancouver fans in a bad light - that we're fickle, bandwagon-jumpers, etc. etc. And PS, nobody is panicking.

lol.

Panic is such a misrepresented term by these mongoloids who have nothing better to write about.

Tell you what folks.

We'll panic when the 9.2 earthquake hits the North end of the Cascadia subduction zone.

Otherwise it's just a fukin hockey team.

Thanks.

Canuck fans.

In TO, it's not hard to find condescending attitudes towards Vancouver. Not nasty. Tolerance of a backwards sibling.

A milder version of the attitude some here show towards Calgary.

The hockey media in Canada has always been worse than the media the American teams get. However, I expect it to worsen as the game gets bigger; which it has. The NHL is now more popular than the NBA.

I wish someone would hire Glen Hanlon as an analyst, as he is very well spoken, articulate and insightful....he would be so much better than so many of the other analysts out there....

Just media in general I would say. Still the most hated team, most of the predictions I've read thus far read like "OMG the Canucks will be lucky to survive XXXX series" and Canucks loose Stanley Cup again to any team they are matched against up to and including a bag of pucks.

meh. Embrace the hate, play our game and hoist the cup.

What the fuck is up with Botchford??? He has taken over the throne for the most annoying local sporting journalist. A title once held by the great David Pratt.

Too much to read on this thread, I'll just throw out another +1 on abolishing Tony Gallagher.

No shit. Have you ever seen him on a panel on SportsNet or HNIC? Guy has that look on his face, of 'holy shit I can't believe I've made it! I'm actually pulling this off! ...and I'm going to be a celebrity!!! I hope they don't catch on' ....or his Province profile shot wearing Beats headphones. There is alot of annoying goofs in the Van media circle but this guy is right near the top.

Yes, the profile pic with his headphones is particularly pathetic...there is nothing less cool than someone working really hard to look cool....I'd even say, he's a DUD!

This lockout is killling the assheads that work for the TEAM 1040. Nothing but Lions and Whitecaps to talk about. They attempt to talk MLB and NFL but they are way out of their element.

Thank christ for 1410 and Patrick, Mike and Mike and Rome for decent sports talk.

The only local fellas I can stand on the TEAM are Tom Mayenecht and Terry David Mulligan .
Tell me how my ass tastes.
