Some poster named Stay Golden had to lay down the law. I'm sue there is no fabrication or outright lies in this trainwrek of a thread at the Mongoloid Farm. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Always good for a laugh...

I've been to a couple Flames games. The group I work with sponsors a bunch of Northern Kids to go to the Tim Horton's camp at Kananaskis every year, and one of the events we take them to is a Flames game. Everytime I go it's hilarious. We always sit up in the Super-Bleeders, and it's a Gongshow everytime.

The first year I went (2 years ago) a couple drunks spilled their beer all over some of the kids we were with. These are 12-15 year old Aboriginal kids, just having a good time in a building that holds more people than they've ever seen in their lives. Anyways, these idiots spill their drinks on them, and when the kids are like "dude, wtf" the drunks decide to get in their face. A couple of our staff members (we're all military) politely told these idiots to smarten up or they'd get a close-up of the ice over the railings. They were then escorted out of the building before the shootout.

This past year, there was a group of people smoking pot in the next section over. Literally passing pipes and joints around. Being from BC, I couldn't help but laugh. But I guess that's what you can expect when you put people behind the media section and deny them a view of the scoreboard...

Is that above or below Bow level?

I saw the thread the other day and couldn't get very far into it.

Maybe we could pass the hat and get Doc tickets to the Air Canada Centre.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

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

That board is a mess!!! It's like a retard convention at that site. Seriously what an orgy of hate, jealousy and stupidity . Having perused that place over the years there is most definitely an obsession with the Canucks, the fanbase and the city of Vancouver in general.

Nothing like the generalizations over there, "they", "them", "those Canucks fans" did this, this and that. Because there absolutely aren't any dumb Flames fans right. :roll: Seriously, the guy that runs that site must be the biggest idiot there for the simple fact that he lets these people act the way that they do. You kind of have to wonder about a guy who gives himself a handle like Bingo.

If you think that's bad, you should tune into '960 The Fan' if you ever get a chance.

Believe it or not, that station is even more ridiculous than Calgarypuck.com.

Remember when Duncan Keith injured Sedin with that dirty hit in 2012?

Obviously - a few Canuck fans were angry and may have said some stupid things, but 960 "The Fan" then devoted an entire show towards the Canucks........and if hockey was no longer just a game for British Columbians any more and if it was infact, an obsession. They cited that a lot of "strange comments come out of BC" (in response to one angry fan saying, "Duncan Keith shouldn't come back to BC" in light of his hit on Sedin), and that perhaps it wasn't just a game anymore.......and that perhaps the stress of not having won a cup was taking its toll mentally on British Columbians."

The other half of that particular show talked about how Vancouverites can't stand it when other cities on the West Coast get praised (i.e. if someone says 'Seattle is a nice city', a Vancouverite will automatically start talking about Vancouver :? -). Just really stupid things like that.

And then my friends wonder why I was genuinely happy when Calgary got flooded (not because I wanted to see anything bad long term happen to anyone........but because I wanted to kick them as hard as I could when THEY were down just as they did to us two years earlier......give them a taste of their own goddamn medicine......felt so friggin good by the way, as I let it all "hang" on Facebook). It's just bullshit. Albertans would be all too happy in seeing bad things happen to Vancouver, and they kicked us down during our lowest time (i.e. Cup loss.......not defending us when good Vancouverites cleaned up the riots). I consider it one of my favorite moments in life when I expressed how I truly felt about Calgary during one of their lowest moments earlier this year.

Calgary is an absolutely hideous city. The place looks like Baghdad or Beirut and is likely the only city in the country that is uglier than both Edmonton and Toronto.

I'll say one thing again.

During one of the analysis' on 960 "The Fan", they talked about Boston/Vancouver Game 7.......and how it was complete domination on Boston's part. The truth of the matter however, was that it wasn't. Canucks out-shot and out-hit the Bruins by a very wide margin in Game 7 (if I recall correctly, the shots were 37-21 in Vancouver's favor, and it was around 47-26 in Vancouver's favor as far as hits were concerned). Those stats weren't "padded" either (i.e. Boston protecting the lead). The shots and chances in Van's favor was consistent throughout.

Bruins got an empty net goal, and scored 2 goals in a relatively short time span due to a bad stretch on our part............but nope...........all of this got twisted into "complete domination" on Boston's part.

Again - this game was two years ago and I'm not even sure why I'm bringing it up, but it just goes to show someone of the TREMENDOUS negative bias that comes out of Calgary and their media outlets. It's some of the most ridiculous things that I've ever seen.

Toronto is actually a really cool place. May not be the most asthetically pleasing, but it's an awesome city to live in.

I'll have to give Toronto credit as far as that goes.

Art you speak truth, Calgary is like Kelowna without the lake, mountains or weather... one long Harvey avenue or Surrey at King George and 104th

truly meritless ...

I hate Calgary as a city, but I find ALL cities, Vancouver included, as hideous, ugly places to live. I think living in a city is an absolutely depressing prospect.

On another note - how about that Monahan kid :mrgreen:

Monahan looks like a keeper.

As far as cities go: Calgary >>>>>> Edmonton.

That's a ripping yarn there country boy, but the fact remains that Vancouver looks like a postcard and Calgary resembles a fucking garbage dump.

An ugly post card. Don't get me wrong - being BC born and raised, I love BC. I just hate Vancouver - no more or no less than any other city. Whether Vancouver is nicer than Calgary or not, is like comparing which wart on a hog's ass is the nicest. :roll:

Remember all the yakking they did when the Canucks had Vancouver written on the front of the jersey.

I like their disappointment that we re-signed the twins to 7 million and four years. They really wanted like 8 million and six years. They are actually dismayed that we still get to keep them for a deserved salary and only 4 years. They hate the fact that it was a good contract. Love it. Although a few say we are making a mistake like the Flames did with Iggy and Kipper, not trading them. They don't seem to get that we really couldn't trade them and unlike Iggy and Kipper they would have been FA.

Now if MG had signed them for 6-7 years then in four years they would have a point. The fact that most feel it is a good contract is telling.
