A little soccer, anyone?

What better way to spend father’s day than watching soccer and chatting it with Mike Boone and Kevin Mio as Italy takes on New Zealand. Join us here.

    No, you can actually knock a sport having played it. You just have to find it not particularly interesting.

    Differing opinions does not equal lack of knowledge.

  4. RJB says:

    I’m really dissapointed in how ignorant some posters are about the game of soccer. Especially some that I have read for a long time and respected their opinions. I understand that it is not to your taste, but show a little more class than mocking someone elses sport. It may not be for everyone, but the least we can do is respect it and not resort to petty insults.

    thank god HIO wasn’t there back then so we all didn’t have to hear what he had to say because i’m sure it was a thousand times more negative than today.

  6. kempie says:

    I cannot believe that this simple, indisputable fact is so very lost on so many people here. Short memories. I wonder what Tony242 was saying back then?

    IMO Gainey did improve this team. When he took over, the team wasn’t even able to compete in the AHL. Yes, he could’ve done a better job and always hasn’t made the right decisions, but he definately did improve this team.

  8. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    One thing I don’t often get is that several posters here blame Bob Gainey for the current situation the Habs are in. “Gainey ruined the franchise” 

    What the heck?

    Were the Habs contenders before he was assigned the GM position?

    No! The team wasn’t even a playoff bubble team.

    He tried his best to improve the team and the team is in much better position than it was 5-6 years ago. Stop bashing Gainey. I am not saying he’s the best GM Habs have ever had, but give the guy some god damn credit. Every GM makes mistakes here and then and he made mistakes as well by not signing or trading Streit and other key players. Halak was a major contribution in these playoffs, but Gainey is the guy who brought in other key assets like Gionta, Gill and Cammalleri. He built this team and it went on its longest Cup run since 1993. Give him credit where it’s due.

  14. Les Habitants says:

    The last time the leafs won the cup it was still just a bowl!!

  15. nickster13 says:

    Italian team is full of actors first, then soccer players.

  21. Storm Man says:

    Maybe Havret can save the day for France.

  22. Storm Man says:

    What football did you play? XBOX?? shin pads lol that is such a funny post………

  23. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    BOONE, England 0 – Algeria 0…..post that one too.

  24. HFX-HabFan says:

    What a disaster.  Not on the same level as the times when the Russian men’s Olympic hockey team craps the bed, but nevertheless the French are once again embarassing themselves.

  25. Storm Man says:

    Guess you will be super happy with what is going on with the French team. Anelka has been sent home and the team today does want to train anymore. This team is in shambles, I hope SA shows them the door.

  26. nickster13 says:

    Nice dive by the italian! 10 on 10!

    “Whinnig”? You mean whining or winning?

    If you mean winning, France hasn’t won yet.

    If you mean whining, could you direct me to who is whining, please?

    I’ve seen disruption, mutiny, and swearing, but no whining.

    Keepin it real, I be chillin as

    France is packed and ready to go home.

  30. Storm Man says:

    Anyone who knocks american football has never played it. You have a helmet and shoulder pads that is all… In highschool some little pads for the legs and knees and tailbone. Maybe that guy thinks tennis is tough.

  31. homerbowen says:

    Most Italians here in the Toronto area are Laff fans so I’m overjoyed with Italy’s tie today (good as a loss)…….they are cryin big time here. Get them and the whinnig France out and I’m really happy.

  32. likehoy says:

    soccer’s pretty ancient in terms of technology, but they should definitely introduce it.

  33. Bugs says:

    ONE handball?

    Try two.

    Two handballs for Fabiano on his goal.

    But hey, it’s not France, so no problem.

  34. likehoy says:

  35. likehoy says:

    typical american slander… can’t believe he dissed 3rd world countries …

  36. HFX-HabFan says:

    Nice to see France crapping the bed and then bickering with each other like junior high-aged girls.  Awesome.

  37. Storm Man says:
