I have to agree. Fox can be a little over the top at times, but he's pretty much always informative, not pulling stupid comments out of his ass.

You, sir, are an evil man. I would call 911, but I wouldn't touch him and then say my excuse is "fear of being sued"

Quick was underneath Niedermayer until he got up and fought back. Fox is simply an idiot sometimes but one of the better color analysts when it comes to objectivity.

Don't you know? No team outplays the Ducks -- it's always a hot goaltender.

While you're probably sick of hearing about Hayward, it is crucial that you read this letter. Let's get down to brass tacks: If Hayward gets his way, none of us will be able to get my message about Hayward out to the world. Therefore, we must not let him teach headlong concepts to children. Perhaps he has some sound arguments on his side, but if so, he's keeping them well hidden; all the arguments I've heard from him are totally cheeky. He is not only indelicate but is addicted to being indelicate. That sounds really self-satisfied, but I unequivocally profess that it's an accurate assessment of the situation. I frequently wish to tell Hayward that to condemn his criminal ineptitude, we have to work diligently and effectively to place a high value on honor and self-respect. But being a generally genteel person, however, I always bite my tongue.
There are many roads leading to the defeat of Hayward's plans to leave a generation of people planted in the mud of a dastardly, cantankerous world to begin a new life in the shadows of commercialism. I suspect that all of these roads must eventually pass through the same set of gates: the ability to pursue virtue and knowledge. In a broad-brush sense, there's a chance that Hayward will subvert existing lines of power and information in the near future. Well, that's extremely speculative but it is clear today that Hayward should start developing the parts of his brain that have been impaired by diabolism. At least then he'll stop trying to replace discourse and open dialogue with worthless agendas and blatant ugliness. It has been brought to my attention that his writings are so exact in their scheme, so comprehensive in their scope, that mischievous airheads have adopted and embraced them verbatim ac litteratim. While this is undoubtedly true, if he were to produce precisely the alienation and conflict needed to lead an active disinformation campaign, social upheaval and violence would follow. It is therefore clear that if you're like most people you just shrug your shoulders whenever you hear about Hayward's latest unholy hatchet jobs. When your shoulders get tired of shrugging I hope you'll realize that Hayward has commented that society is screaming for his apothegms. I would love to refute that but there seems to be no need, seeing as his comment is lacking in common sense.
The point at which you discover that Hayward considers it his calling to preach the gospel of gangsterism to every living creature is not only a moment of disenchantment. It is a moment of resolve, a determination that he says that he has his moral compass in tact. I've seen more plausible things scrawled on the bathroom walls in elementary schools. This is not the first time I've wanted to show you, as dispassionately as possible, what kind of disaffected thoughts he is thinking about these days. But it is the first time I realized that it is hardly surprising that he wants to place stumbling blocks in front of those of us who seek value and fulfilment in our personal and professional lives. After all, this is the same obdurate, insolent dirtbag whose hypersensitive prattle informed us that his way of life is correct and everyone else's isn't.
While we do nothing, those who poison the relationship between teacher and student are gloating and smirking. And they will keep on gloating and smirking until we direct your attention in some detail to the vast and irreparable calamity brought upon us by Hayward. He has never disproved anything I've ever written. Hayward does, however, often try to discredit me by means of flagrant misquotations, by attributing to me views that I've never expressed. In the end, he recently went through a resistentialism phase in which he tried repeatedly to burn his opponents at the stake. In fact, I'm not convinced that this phase of his has entirely passed. My evidence is that Hayward is thoroughly voluble, as he has proved to my complete satisfaction.
Strictly speaking, I don't see how Hayward can build a workable policy around wishful thinking draped over a morass of confusion (and also, as we'll see below, historical illiteracy), then impose it willy-nilly on a population by force. I'm not saying that it can't possibly be done but rather that it is of paramount importance not to let Hayward's apologists lay waste to the environment. That's pretty transparent. What's not so transparent is the answer to the following question: Has anyone ever seen Hayward working instead of plundering, stealing, and living off the sweat of others? A clue might be that Hayward thinks it's good that his zingers render unspeakable and unthinkable whole categories of beliefs about power. It is difficult to know how to respond to such monumentally misplaced values, but let's try this: He has remarked that an open party with unlimited access to alcohol can't possibly outgrow the host's ability to manage the crowd. This is a comment that should chill the spine of anyone with moral convictions. To make sure you understand I'll spell it out for you. For starters, I regret not writing this letter sooner. As an interesting experiment, try to point this out to him. (You might want to don safety equipment first.) I think you'll find that Hayward insists that he has no choice but to shift blame from those who benefit from oppression to those who suffer from it. His reasoning is that he is known for his sound judgment, unerring foresight, and sagacious adaptation of means to ends. Yes, I realize that that argument makes no sense, but if Hayward honestly believes that some of my points are not valid, I would love to get some specific feedback from him. To reiterate the main message of this letter, this phenomenon seems commonplace in our disintegrating society.

Yeah the comment about Simmonds leaving for a couple weeks to play at the WJC pissed me off, and then Brown's "knack for drawing penalties", had me yelling at the TV, but when he said Quick "left the crease to get involved in the fight" I started throwing crap! I hate this g*d da** m*th3r frickin' prick! Even his normal analysis is unbearable, but when he just makes blatant errors, he makes me want to throw him face first out of the press box onto some quack fans.

Yo, hold up.
Hayward is 100% right about Brown's "knack". Dude is a diver, pure and simple.
He has two moves - the toe-drag, and the "try to draw a penalty". Hell, he made a mission out drawing calls in the Atlanta game.
I know he's our captain, and he is playing fairly well right now, but lets call a spade a spade folks.
