@Dezzy46 No one's making you come read us, man. If you hate it here so much there are plenty of other options out there to read. We really don't care if you do or don't.

@Kurtis Blow We actually do miss Thornton. Fewer people fellated him more than DOY..

http://daysofyorr.com/2014-articles/video-tribute-we-say-goodbye-to-shawn-thornton.html

...but his on-ice impact was pretty minimal. So he's not missed in that regard.

And also, yea we're annoyed that Lucic is taking penalties. When you're not scoring and you're taking dumb penalties, and you're making super-bank, I think that's pretty good grounds for people to be annoyed. Especially when the PK is currently crap, the team you're facing has a great PP, and the guy taking the penalty is notorious for taking dumb penalties at inopportune times.

And not Vancouver fans, but we've been told we're Habs fans on multiple occasions.

@campkrusty  He's a solid player. Wouldn't have minded him on the Bs for a while, though not sure where he'd fit now.

@Peter Bacon  Also, talk is cheap. It's easy to condemn something, but what do we do about it to make sure it doesn't happen again? There's never any education behind these stories. It's always "Look, racists exist! Yep.. whelp... look at 'em. Look at 'em all... ok... thanks for the easy ad revenue... we're done here."


I'd like to see some suggestions on bettering things and not just click bait stories about what people on twitter do.

@Peter Bacon  I totally agree with the team's message. Racism is bullshit and has no room in our modern society. But I don't think they should have to apologize for what people on the Internet tweet. Nor should I have to apologize for some other ignorant fans because we both root for the same team. Or anyone else have to, for that matter. These type of comments happen all the time but we don't demand every team apologize for it. Under that logic, I should expect an apology from the Buffalo Sabres for some of their fans sending us death threats. Clearly, all their fans are murderous psychopaths, right? It's selective hearing by the Internet. People know the stereotype, see what the situation is (PK scoring game winner), mine tweets to find the scumbags, and then start RTing their shit like crazy, inflating the tweet number.


As for the 17,000:

"According to Montreal media monitoring and analysis company Influence Communications, the N-word and Subban's name were used in conjunction on 17,000 tweets yesterday, although the majority of them were not negative."


Context is important. Obviously, even one out of 17,000 tweets is awful, but the only ones that should have to answer for those tweets are the people who tweeted them in the first place. Not hockey fans. Not Bruins fans. Not the team.

 @iamHighLife The numbers would be different but the order would stay the same. Idea was the Bruins are in the middle of the pack offensively and there's always people complaining about contracts, so let's look at who's pulling their weight after a quarter of the season.

 

And like I said, some of these guys do more than just put up points. It probably woulda made for a better show feature/debate than a blog post.
