Carla...Don't let it bug you...the vast majority of people (me included) love reading your blog.

There is a reason why Rinkrat puts your articles on the front page of LGK.com, so keep them coming.

For what it's worth I'll stop making negative comments. I was only responding with an opinion based on what I had seen after having it bought to my attention by other King fans on LGK.
As a Duck fan on a Kings message board I expect that I'll be given the short end of the stick damn near every time so I'll acquiesce this argument for now. The only point I was trying to make was that in my opinion, and in the opinion of others, CM was offering opinion pieces but standing by them as if they were gospel truth. The only thing anyone on LGK has to offer is an opinion. The moment that we pedestal ourselves to the point where we stubbornly stick to our opinions by dismissing the opinions of others is when people will take exception. It's not just me...that's just human nature. So, if I am willing to let this go (and to be honest, I don't really have a choice) then perhaps a more open mind can be had by others when listening to opinions from other LGKers.
Just my .02
ps....The Natural.....no worries man. and uh, your avatar really creeps me out

Okay, so if people don't agree and it starts a discussion, isn't that what we're here for?
I don't always agree with what she writes, how she writes it etc.
I tried to discuss it with her and all I got were smiley faces.
If she didn't write it like it were the 'gospel truth' I might not take offense. She claims to know whats right/wrong with this team. So does Hockeysistah and everyone else here in LGK land. Unless she has some secret relationship with the team, then she doesn't 'know' whats right or wrong. And I can go find her response to me one night where she said thats all she's trying to do: provide an answer. Whats right and whats wrong to this team.
No one cuts anyone any slack around here.
I'm done responding to her posts. I'm pretty much the only person who does anyway.
ETA: Shes now on my ignore list so that her posts don't pop up for me. I'll leave poor Carla alone.

I don't think Carla cares if you're a duck fan or not. I think all she's asking for is a little respect. The same respect you want from the King fans on this site.

I've read all of her posts and the LGK responses to her posts, and I don't see the George W Bush esque 'it's my way or the highway' attitude from her.
By the way, you do have a choice. You either click on her article or you don't.

Gospel truth was just a good word to describe it. You can't have a conversation with her.

She cried 'no respect' and thats when I stopped respecting her. So, the next time someone on LGK disagrees with what I type, can I cry no respect?
Because you're hurting my feelings CP4ID. I don't like the disrepect. :(
I have an opinion. I guess I can't express it here. I can't disagree with someone who writes something here without it being described as a cat fight.
I'll remember that when CBGB expresses his disdain for the team, management, coaching staff etc in another one of his posts and people disagree with him. He's got a case for 'no repsect'.

I am a Kings fan by marriage. We live back in my home state of Louisiana (just moved back here last year from L.A., where my husband is from). Before him, I didn't know one thing, and cared even less, about hockey. But, now I AM ADDICTED. I have been following them for 4 years now and I remain hopeful - my husband says that is because I haven't followed them for the last 30. Anyway, we have to watch all of the games on center ice and last week my husband was out of town and missed the games. A few games ago the telecast showed LaBarbera in his routine during the national anthem. I got a kick out of this and have looked for a video of it all over the internet. I was hoping you had some footage of this. I hope this isn't bothering you but I read all of your blogs (and 99% of the time, you are spot on-I think MC is a goner). I have never posted to any site about anything and am still unsure how to navigate around. Any direction you can give would be great on the video.
For some reason, I feel quite hopeful tonight. By the way - Dustin is my favorite. To have such a sweet face (I could almost be his mother), he can surely "stick" it to'em.
