I want to know where CBGB is in this post. As for the blog, Carla do what you do best write, we dont have to agree with it, (I DO) but everyone here is such a contrairian (sp) sometimes it makes your head spin.
This team may have heart, what it lacks is a soul. I was a STH for some pretty bad teams in the mid 80's, but they still played with passion. What is see happening in this sport is what happened to baseball 30 years ago. The players are more worried about their paychecks than their team and or winning. Alex Rodriguez anyone. Now you hear that Ovechkin was insulted by the Caps, well let him go back to Russia, he is not what this team needs, another player worrying about a paycheck.
That's my 4 cents worth!
You are definitely correct about many an athlete today. Thankfully of the four major sports, hockey seems (in fairness, I am biased) to have the least paycheck players of the four. ....as to Ovechkin, I have read more stuff about him wanting to know the Caps will build a team, then him wanting to leave for more $$$ elsewhere.
The head spinning part I am learning as I go, no doubt.... *sigh*
I love this site
everytime i come to the site i know i am among true Kings fans.
fans that are compassionate about their team and angry that our team isnt playing to their full potential.
all we can do is show our support for the Kings for better or for worse and we need to stand side by side to root them on. GO KINGS GO
Yeah last nights game was bad and sucked getting blown out by the preds. But I still I will be at the at tomorrows game cheering for the Kings. I am a season seat holder and win or lose I will be there to support the Kings. I do believe Kings fans are better than the anaheim sucks and when they missed the playoffs this year the honda center will be like a ghost town next year. go coyotes. It would be sweet if they knocked the duckes out of the playoffs:nerd::angry:
Also, you say you write these posts to incite dialogue. Okay, so we're 'dialogueing' here. When we have an opinion that DOESN'T agree with something you wrote, you come back with the most asinine comments. And you harp on the heart thing. Let it go. You sound like the rest of the people on here. I wouldn't mind the dialogue with you if you had something to say. You say everything in your original post and leave it here for us to disect and discuss.
You know, I'm frustrated after the game last night too. But every team is going to have a game like this. Maybe not to the magnitude the Kings faced last night, or the frequency either, but it happens. And no rebuild happens overnight. I get frustrated. I slam my fists on the couch and I almost threw something last night. But you know what? Its just a game. I have no control over it. Writing satirical articles supposedly from the team itself, that won't make me feel any better. We're 1.5 seasons into a rebuild. A rebuild with new people rebuilding. No one said the Cup would be presented to the team this year. No one. No one ever said we'd be a contender for said Cup at this point in the game either. So, everyone needs to get frustrated, drink a lot, swear a lot - do whatever it takes to get their frustration out. Then sit back and watch the young'uns play. Watch them develop into the core they are supposed to be for this contender.
All I'm saying is that your blog posts aren't the reason a player has a better game after you call them out on it. Your posts don't really inspire any more dialogue than what is already here. And everyone keeps harping on this heart thing.
Get over it. There are some major holes in this organization right now.
Bigger holes than heart.
And unless you have some special insight or are a fly on the wall in the locker room, you know the same amount we all know about this team - what we see on paper and on the ice.
