Bio not provided
Just wanted to pop back in for a moment and explain myself.
Just to clarify one thing Canucksnaphooks "wish to punch Mirtle in the face" was as serious as his switching of allegiance to the Anaheim Ducks, Carolina Hurricanes, the purchase and development of EyesoftheHurricane.com fansite for Caniacs and many many outlandish things the little green man has spit out over the years.
Not the nicest thing to post about a guest, more colourful than 'ughhhhh' though and honestly, who ever took that seriously?
I can't even believe that this is now being brought up as a reason to extend (what was communicated to this particular poster) a temporary ban to a permanent one. I completely understand the mods/operators frustration with respect to the mocking etc. and it does reach a point where enough becomes enough.
I don't believe you (the owners) owe a public declaration of why someone is banned or for how long. It's your site. However, I was glad you communicated with the offending party in this case. That was all I thought was deserved. It was something I commented about, I don't know if it was my comment or not that persuaded you to do that but good on you guys for doing that. I think the discussion though was a bit disingenuous to string them along discussing a temporary banning to just reveal that it's now permanent. I think that is a dickbag move and it really pissed me off more than anything I have seen or read in the comments section here since I started here years ago.
I agree with most of what Alec posted below, I've supported the changes you guys have wanted to make with regards to the threads. I think I have pretty well backed you guys up on everything you have decided to do. It's your site and you allowed us the freedom to just be, within reason and I for one do appreciate that.
I hope you don't take offense to my writing above, I just wanted to explain where I'm coming from.
I love the work you guys put in and the conversations that we have on here about the Leafs as well as whatever fills the bill during the down times.
Thanks Alec, Declan, A.P.
I'm still taking a break, maybe a long one
P.S.To some of the posters in reply to Alec's explanation. I take offense to some of the comments about the motives of 'older posters' to change and some of the just crap being trotted out in some of those replies. I wont get into those as I've taken enough of your screen space.
2 months ago on Sunday Mashup: Covering the points, line possibilities
I'm out. Thanks for the great articles etc.
Met some great posters as well.
Not happy with what has been going on but it's not my site to run.
Boy has a road game tonight. Cheers MLHS
@TuckerForPunishment @ShiFty_D Thank you sir
Anyone have a picture comparison of the old trapezoid area vs the new?
I think they should just get rid of the damn thing personally or reverse the usage. Don't let the goalie act as a pick in behind the net but if they can get out to the corner to quick up the puck so be it
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @MaxwellHowe Pretty solid number isn't it
@Jmessih @ShiFty_D Those are some of the ones I'd like to see
Rielly, Kadri, Booth,
Kontiola, Frattin, Winnik, Holland, among those projected to play in
Leafs preseason opener tomorrow night.
Don’t worry buddy it’s almost October… #IsItOctoberYet #GONGSHOW http://ow.ly/i/6WLSY
@Jmessih @ShiFty_D @ingy56 Timmeh's got this
Has there been any talk of roster for tomorrow night yet, too soon?
@ingy56 @Jmessih Sweet a 4-0 record to start things off!
@mike_84 Nice. I should have got some to the game in London tomorrow night
O/T What a great building for hockey and concerts btw (Budweiser Gardens)
Not overly impressed by intra squad scrimmages. I'll be more interested to see who does what in some of these preseason games. The final few more specifically
@ingy56 Paul Hendrick
Bernier and Bibeau perfect through 2 days. The Scimmage-Vezina winners.
Morgan Rielly goes crossbar and in on Chris Gibson. A seeing-eye shot and White leads 3-0. #TMLtalk
@Savo43 @mcloki @Loric76 vs Flyers in London
@theacs1966 @ShiFty_D @rockydundas @RandomScrub @Burtonboy I know. He's just tough to listen through at times
@theacs1966 @ShiFty_D @rockydundas @RandomScrub @Burtonboy Shit. Bob has to do math calculations as well? Poor bugger
@rockydundas @RandomScrub @Burtonboy oh he didn't. He couldn't figure out how to type the 'ler' properly
@dlb Mad just yesterday?
@ingy56 @ShiFty_D There was some strange tension there for sure
@ingy56 Still some ways apart apparently ;P
@dlb Mad @Henrik Tallinder didn't need the year to reach the same conclusion. Saw him play before LOL
I'm excited to see these preseason games only to get a look at some of the 'new' guys, other than that I just want the season to get going. #Impatient
@TorontoMapleLeafs @dlb Mad @ShiFty_D Dammit, I am so embarrassed. How could I ever have forgotten #44.
4 perennial Norris candidates right here
@Burtonboy @dlb Mad Kid has nice wheels
@dlb Mad @ShiFty_D Sounds fantastic
@Loric76 @ShiFty_D @TheLoovTrain Seems more like the Rocket Richard for Dmen
@Loric76 @Top Jimmy ugggggggggggggh.....I need to move south, way south
@TheLoovTrain You sound like Bruffins and his regard for Granberg.
Ah well, 2 Norris winners, so be it.
Snipe on #81
2 months ago on Saturday Mashup: Blue & White Scrimmage, Leafs sign Cody Donaghey
@Yaknowwhat Loov Removal Machine. Great tune
@MaxwellHowe Loov-ly ;P
@Loric76 @ShiFty_D @Lummis83 Yeah I think he may change 'r up to round peg square hole this go round.....
@Lummis83 @ShiFty_D @Loric76 Perfect slogan
@Loric76 passionate disagreement
@sniperstar @ShiFty_D There always seems to be that "one"
2 months ago on Thursday Mashup: Feschuk drops bomb, camp opens with physicals and media day
@ingy56 @ShiFty_D Really. That's shitty. I liked that the OMHA required at least one parent of the kids to take the Respect In Sport course as part of being eligible to play. I also figured that the worst offenders would be unchanged by doing so
To parents trying to coach from the stands... Your kid can't hear you, and if he can that's not good.
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan @ShiFty_D This one may be more up to date
2 on LeafsTV, 3 on TSN, 3 on Sportsnet
@Bon Scott was a Leaf fan The 3 with no broadcaster listed are LeafsTV I believe
If Tallinder makes team, Carlyle envisions him potentially playing shutdown minutes, spelling some of Phaneuf's tougher ice.
@Bruffins @ShiFty_D Oh. We thought maybe you were not able to leave of your own free will.....
@Bruffins I wonder what Phook did with the real Bruffins after he extracted his password
@Bruffins So he was in Phooks basement after all. Busted
Looks like the Sharks really were serious about a change in direction
San Jose Sharks
Meanwhile, more intense action is happening at #SharksandParks RT @SharksCare:
Dreger repeatedly brought up how Reimer is a very competitive person and wallowing isn't in his character.
@Bruffins @Burtonboy BRUFFINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
