    Yada Yada Yada, last week according to Bettman players got concussed by falling down now its by no identifyable cause!

    Maybe blows to the head? Could that be the cause?

    Why? maybe cause the downside is so pathetically inconsequential, that players don’t pay attention!

     

     

     

    … the fans of the Boston Bruins now have lost forever any right to complain that “the league” is out to get their team, and that the Montreal Canadiens have some kind of pull inside the NHL home office. Charles P. Pierce – Boston Globe

    My 5 step plan:

    1. Fire Bettman

    2. Fire Campbell

    3. CBC fire Cherry, give him a gold watch and thank him for his service

    4. Touch up icing

    5. Olympic size rinks

  3. ProHabs says:

    Exactly, it does nothing to prevent concussions at all. All it does is deal with what do to after the concussion happens. Does this guy have any proactive ideas.

  4. Komihater says:

    I did not, thanks.

    They seem to be pretty optimistic, i’m remaining skepticle.

  5. HalifaxHabs says:

    reality check – your first four will all happen before number 5 ever happens.

    I guess this is like a comedy bit, because I’m sure you know not every city in Japan has been destroyed.

  7. Jordio-oh says:

    I’ve been wondering about this lately. You watch the NFL on weekends and they have broadcast analysts consisting of hall of famers and other former star players (Bradshaw, Aikman, Young, Carter etc) and yet the NHL is being represented by personalities such as Kyrpeos, PJ Stock, Mike Milbury, Barnaby. Not to mention a whole flock of broken down NHL back up goalies. Ray Ferraro is in a class of his own because he’s clearly a Hab hate from his years of losing to them with the Whalers and Islanders.

    My thought is: Is it really that surprising that there isn’t more outrage among hockey analysts because the ones who represent a sizeable portion of the voice are former goons themseleves? I’m not saying that hockey broadcasting would immediately gain more respect if the panels consisted of Gretzky and Lemieux, but when you have someone like Brad May getting a platform to discuss the Pacioretty hit when he himself was suspended for 20 games for his face slash to Steve Heinze in Nov/2000 it kind of makes on wonder about the game.

    Former goons analyzing head shots. Its no wonder there isn’t more support…

     

  8. Ayan_SB says:

    I wonder how many Bruins fans dismissed Joe Thornton as a choker after his comments regarding Chara and noticed the irony of it.

  9. PrimeTime says:

    All Chara had to do was make a public apology but instead he took the “it wasn’t my fault” approach and try to skwirm away. The reason he did not take any responsibility afterwards is because he knew what waht he did in the heat of moment but did not owm up to it. Has he contacted Max yet to apologize? How has Chara’s play been since……playing like a guilty man?? How about the team?? The crime and lie will always follow you around until you admit to the act. Only then can you move on.

  10. LA Loyalist says:

    You guys are going to die: USA Hockey March 2011, re moving the beginning of legal checking to “Bantam” because “the American Development Model” “…were concerned about a lack of individual skills at the Peewee level, as players seemed to focus too much onon either checking or looking to avoid a check by not playing with the puck.”

    There is a “body-checking sub-committee” which includes “esteemed hockey coaches and administrators” — and MIKE MILBURY* and Al MacInnis.

    “They are also promoting a coaching curriculum which teaching skills such as angling and body positioning that would give all plyaers a better foundation when body checking is introduced.”

    In brief, the headspace that it’s the “players fault” is highly systemic and imbedded in the U.S. hockey culture.

    Guys? en Quebec? Whazzup?

     

    *Milbury is an idiot, IMO, but I do give him credit for not turtling in his fight with Larry Robinson.

     Just keep an eye on the jetstream, in the event of full meltdown i would not take any chances and head east. Apparently the third reactor is the Chara of them all.

  13. LA Loyalist says:

    I  haven’t watched Cherry in years, but I specifically watched the last one to know what he would say.

    keep your friends close, and your enemies closer, as the saying goes.

  14. habs365 says:

    if he was saying it on behalf of Hockey Night in Canada….I would start listening to him again….he’s saying it on behalf of Don Cherry….all Im saying if you listen to Don Cherry that’s your decision I’m sure people on this site don’t have a problem with that….but don’t come on here complaining about what he said….people is getting sick of it…….

    Not sure if it was mentioned elsewhere here but PJ Stock is no longer part of the morning team on the CHOM webpage….And his name isn’t mentioned anywhere else…

    I haven’t checked it out myself, that website is blocked at my work.

  19. habsonly says:

    I wonder what will be accomplished during the 3 day meeting in Florida. Will the NHL and the GMs work out a solution to the inconsistent dealings with head shots and goonery or will they just work on their golf swing and tans.

    Not sure if anyone has seen this yet but apparently the NHL brain trust has drafted a flow chart for handing out suspensions. See link

    I had not thought of that point. There does seem to be a preponderance of goons giving the commentary.

    was one of the big 3 of those great junior canadiens teams here in the oha when junior hockey was huge here. that team had the biggest crowd ever in the forum to date more than te habs and on a couple of sunday nights. martin, perrault and rejean houle used to fill the net.

  22. ZepFan2 says:

    Uh-huh…

    “Termed the world’s best all-around player by Soviet national team coach Viktor Tikhonov, Bob Gainey brought many elements to the Montreal Canadiens during his 16-year NHL career.”

  25. thebigguy says:

    Completely for this. I stopped playing hockey in a league around the time people started hitting puberty, maybe 12 or 13. Hitting wasn’t allowed yet but I was getting my ass kicked just from the accidental contact. It didn’t help that I was born at the end of the year so I was playing with kids a grade ahead of me and I was small for my age. I basically alternated between being average size and tiny depending on the year.

    That and a couple cheap shots about being one of the few Anglo kids playing pretty much did it.

     

    Oh, and I wasn’t very good.

  26. Trenton_Romulox says:

    I have heard that Chara tried to contact Pacioretty. I’m assuming it was to express concern, if not a full-blown apology. I don’t know what ended up coming of his attempt. In regards to Chara’s play of late? He’s been playing really well. I don’t regret dropping him from my fantasy team and keeping Pacioretty on the roster one bit though, Chara can go to hell. 

  27. Jordio-oh says:

    Unfortunately for me, I’ve only been subject to the crew at the Fan590. I watch all my games on TV, so i have never heard a single Habs game broadcast over the radio (am I aging myself here?).

    The Kypreos and Doug MacLean and Fan590 issue is similar to Don Cherry. I get frustrated when i listen, but in some regard, thats the point of listening; to spark debate and thought.

    On days when i don’t feel like getting riled up or provoked in thought, i avoid that station on my lunch hour. If I have some energy to spare, Il’l listen and spend the afternoon debating the points with my friends.

  28. naweed235 says:

    sooner the better…

  29. Max_a_million says:

    Your right that they should make the change, it seems like pennies on the dollar when you are paying many of these players over 5 million per season. 

    I thought there were better alternative in astroturf than what they had at the time … hmmm I could be wrong, but I was of the mind they were ignoring the problem. 

  30. HabinBurlington says:

    Exactly, i had written almost the exact same post myself awhile ago here.  Guys like Kypreos can’t complain about this style of hockey, they don’t want it gone, for fear that they’re useless careers are no longer validated.  You look at arguable our greatest two physical players in Ferguson and Nilan, and these guys not only were tough, but played important roles and regular shifts on our teams that won Cups.

     

    Is beyond me why 90% of NHL former players doing play by play etc… are goons or below average goalies.  No stars.  Of course we are enlightened daily by that All – Star former Assistant Coach Pierre Mcguire.   Just can’t figure out why he can’t get another gig, he did such a good job opening the gate for Mario those years back in Pitt.

  31. rocketsglare says:

    Possibly more bad news on the eve of a crucial home game. Cammalleri will be day to day with the flu but I bet he plays

    tommorrow. Cammalleri understands the importance of Tuesday’s game against the Caps.

    Go Habs Go!

  32. jimmy shaker says:

    Didn’t have the technology back then, so what the big O had, was, what was state of the art back then.  Three Rivers  stadium in pittsburgh was the same way as well as where the eagles played football.  Those turfs had a number of players careers shortened substantially.  But as far as today’s NHL goes, there should be no excuse as to what the safest materials used should be.  The league should probably have something like this in place already, but what are we going to expect from these bunch of jabroni’s anyways?

  33. Timo says:

    We;ll see tomorrow. I think they are not as superb defensively as you think…

  34. HalifaxHabs says:

    my point = you missed it

    and you said “people is getting sick of it”…

    and, people can come on here to complaim any hockey topic related to the Habs they want… and what that bonehead has to say on national TV about the Habs counts as “related to the Habs”.

  35. HabinBurlington says:

    I think Max got a phone call, but all he heard was grunts and groans, so he hung up.  Who would have thought it was Chara apologizing.

  36. Jordio-oh says:

    I respect your frustrations with people complaining about Don Cherry on this form especially since you take measures to avoid catching wind of Don’s thoughts. Unfortunately, your attempts will be futile as people will always want to talk about whatever they want. An inevitable outcome of public measure boards.

    There are some who will be frusrated by your complaining about others complaining and so forth. It happens daily. Solutions are slim because venting feels good, for most, and thus they will never stop. The purpose of these message boards for most is to just get it out there into the world and perhaps alleviate their own stressed out minds, similar to tweeting and blogging.

     

     

  37. Max_a_million says:

    I can’t stand him, but I just don’t bother changing it. 

    It is good to see what the goonarians are saying anyhow.  Notice the week before he showed Gillies hit from an angle that highlighted his position, when the front angle definitely showed the head blow. 

     

     

  38. shiram says:

    The morning cast was on vacation last week iirc.

    But PJ was not there this morning…

  39. Max_a_million says:

    The other teams have plexiglass yes, which is much more foregiving. 

    Not sure why they didn’t change it yet.  To be fair he hasn’t owned the team outright for long, and I am sure it wasn’t the number one priority. 

    Why didn’t the Expos buy better astroturf to protect their best assets like Andre Dawson?  

     

     

     

  40. Max_a_million says:

    Yes, I am all for this.  My son is a peewee in the states, and he is just the right height to have his brain scrambled way too much.  Kids who check become obsessed with it, and it’s rough.  Unfortunately at the pewee age some have developped young and are or are at least approaching man size, while others who develop later are little boy size.  No need for checking in Peewee.  When we play Quebec Peewee teams they do not check, and we are not allowed to check them. 

    Very progressive, and I am in favor.

  41. dudurules says:

    any update on max patches o’houlihan?

    PJ Stock scored 5 goals in his NHL career. That is 5 more than the legend in his own mind Don Cherry scored in his entire NHL career.

  43. jimmy shaker says:

    someone give me the 411 on who are the only teams left in the league with the seamless glass.  The habs and five others employ this glass in their buildings, where as the other 24 teams have the stanchioned glass.  What is the difference?  Is one a plexiglass system vs a glass system or what?  And if the seamless glass is a potential injury waiting to happen, why hasn’t the molson bros.  changed it?

  48. TorontoHabsFan says:

    According to Lebrun on the Hot Stove, Montreal had planned to change the glass in the off-season even before Cherry decided to scream Red Herring at the top of his lungs.

    I’ve also never seen any evidence that Montreal’s glass has caused any more injuries than other rinks.

  49. The Cat says:

    Calgary, Montreal, Minnesota, Nashville, Colorado and Phoenix

    [Disclaimer]: I’m a hockey fan. I care about the habs, but probably not as much as you.

  50. habs001 says:

    if the east finished the following way i think this would be good for the habs

    phil,wash,mont,pitts,bost,tampa,rangers,sabres

    if the top 2 teams advance we play wash second round…if one of them advance we play bost/pitts winner and if both get beaten  we play sabres..

  51. ClaytonM says:

    Maybe some people thought he’d redeem his image and stick up for Pacioretty, but I guess most suspected he’d spout the usual. That’s the funny thing about life – some people just have to pick at their scabs even if it’s bad for them.

    Total Goals and Assists for Kypreos, Cherry, P.J Stock and Mike Milbury in Reg. NHL Season

    100 Goals 254 Assists

    301 Goals 686 Assists

    I think I will go with Joe’s thoughts on the NHL over Moe, Curly, Larry and Shemp.

     

  53. solomio says:

    Didn’t like him and he always sounded like he didn’t know what he was talking about which was prolly true.

  54. JF says:

    I’m starting to think Washington might be tougher than Philly.  The Caps are playing superb defensive hockey, they’re better balanced than they were last year, and they seem to have found the goaltending, though it’s still early days for Holtby.  The Flyers are showing a few cracks lately, and I don’t understand why they didn’t bolster their goaltending at the deadline.  Also, if we were to face the Caps again, their motivation level would be through the roof, whereas the Flyers might make the mistake of taking us lightly in view of recent history.

  55. HabinBurlington says:

    check my response to your earlier statement of that.  Cherry played in 1 game in NHL in his career, in the playoffs against Mtl.  No goal, No assist.

     

    Another reason he hates the habs, in his only callup he sucked, agains the Habs.  Probably blames the habs for not letting him do anything productive on ice.

  56. andrewberkshire says:

    Funny thing is, Montreal has EIGHT more real wins than the Rangers. The teams aren’t really even close.

  57. observer says:

    BUT of those 354 points Cherry has only 6 of them and all assists.

  63. Jordio-oh says:

    I listen to Nick Kypreos on the Fan590 almost every day for Hockey Central at noon here in Toronto and so I know his modus operandi very well. He acknowledges (as he should do) all of the talented players he used to play with (Messier, Kovalev, Leetch) but he still talks and acts with this false sense of importance because he used to play the game and was a fighter and that is a very crucial role, to him. The glorification of the role of goons and pests by former goons and pests who are now analysts is so unbelievable for me. Everytime I hear ” the way the game used to be ” and “you wouldn’t know, you never played the game”  i cringe. 

    The most important issues in the league right now are being analysed and relayed back to the public by some of the very people who were the cause of these same issues 15 years ago.

    Milbury climbed into the stands a beat a guy with his own shoe yet he gets a national platform to address violence in hockey????

    Its baffling.

    What do i want to hear on a thursday night sessions of ‘That’s Hockey’? Do i want to listen to Barnaby talk about all the fights he got into and dirty things he shouted at players?

    I’d rather them bring do a segment with Joe Sakic on the finer points of an off-wing wrist shot. But i guess the players who did it all right and played the game the way it should have been played are now happily retired and all the goon squadders who didn’t get the lime light they sought in the NHL as a fighter now get it by being an ‘analyst’.

  65. ProHabs says:

    There was no way he was going to admit guilty because nobody knows yet how badly Patches is hurt. If he doesn’t resume his career, and Chara admits guilty, he would be sued for millions. So Chara played dumb, even thought we all know he did it on purpose.

  69. PrimeTime says:

    If he doesn’t admit to his guilt publicly or to Max and his own teamates I hope the guilt haunts him. If he doesn’t feel guilt than he will go to hell.

    Sorry to go off topic here….but im frantically searching for answers…..and all the media are backpeddling.

     

     Are there any west coast habs fans that are planning to evacuate the area in light of possible radiation clouds heading east with the jetstream? I’m concerned for family i have out there.

     

    Apparemtly they have confirmed a third explosion.

    The USS Reagan which was 100 miles out to sea, has gone through a radiation cloud.

    But there is no panic in the mainstream, i don’t know what to think.

  72. ProHabs says:

    So Buttman has introduced a 5 step plan of attack to deal with the concussion issue in the NHL. Unfortunately, it won’t do any good as nowhere on this plan of attack is the firing of Colon Campbell and Mike Murphy.

    I’m surprised he didn’t decide to form a committtee of current players, headed by Zhedo Chara, to reommend solutions to the problem.

    Those are all good points. However, when companies like Monsanto that are close to controlling the entire industry explain that we as “consumers” dont have the right to know whats GMO and what isn’t, there really is nothing we can do but “try” and eat healtheir/organic type foods.

  85. shiram says:

    Organic food is mostly a marketing and selling point, you are not getting more vitamins/nutrients by eating organics. I never bought into it before, and am not going to now.

    There was a great show about organic foods on Penn and Teller’s Bullsh*t.

  86. Aybara says:

    So I thought this was interesting and looked it up. Under the Canadian gov’s rules for Organic agriculture, the majority of pest repellents are not allowed to touch either the plants or the soil around them.

    Neither of those two oganic poisons you mentioned are listed in the allowed pest repellents.

    Furthermore, even the permitted substances are a last resort case. First, methods such as removal of pest habitat and environmental management are meant to be used before pesticides.

    What gives? Could you explain further?

  94. Bogie Man says:

    I predict the following losses out of the remaining games:

    Caps, rangers, boston, atlanta, chicago and Toronto

    I predict the following wins:

    Tampa Bay, Predators, Buffalo, Washington (3/26), Carolina, NJ and Ottawa

    One of the 6 losses will go to overtime for one point totaling an additonal 15 points and finishing with 98 points for 5th in the the conference and will play Pitsburgh first round.

    Note: Alot of guess work involved in the above predictions for fun.

  95. naweed235 says:

    hey flks… not that it means much but just for fun I decided to see how many points I think the Habs and the bruins will pick up in the remaining games to see if we can get that division title… according to my calculations montreal will get 16 more points and Boston 18… which would mean that will miss it by 4 points… hope im wrong tho cause we all know what Home ice advantage it for our Habs… Cruious to see what numbers you guys would come up with…

    Cherry only played 1 game in his NHL Career, playoffs against Montreal, no goals no assists.

    http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid%5B%5D=952

     

    I believe Charlie Sheen would eloquently call Cherry a TROLL.

  99. observer says:

    Cherry does not like Pacioretty because the rookie already had more points than Cherry did in his entire NHL career – combined. Cherry has ZERO goals scored and SIX assists for his entire NHL career.

  100. observer says:

    MM? Matt Millen is the worst GM ever in NFL history  and Mike Millbury is the worst GM ever in NHL history. But when finally deservedly fired wach one IMMEDIATELY gets SEVERAL DIFFERENT networks to pick him up and use him. Millen -ESPN, NFLN and NBC. Milbury VER, NBC, CBC and I think still NESN. Lot of announcers/commentors out there in both these sports how do they have that much pull to get 3 of those jobs as soon as they are out of work?

  101. BoomBoom says:

    Cheery showed a total lack of respect for MaxPac not as an NHL player (whom Cherry claims to stand up for) but as a human who suffered a severe injury..he also made light of the injury calling it a headache. I can’t believe this guy is for real..our tax dollar going to waste..Cherry is a loser, who never won anything and still holds a grudge against the Habs. MacLean is his b*tch!

    Sportsnet is awful, the worst announcers on air (Gaillard, Pumounllundo,Broadfoot, MacLean, Kypryos, they are allsh*t)..TSN/CTV combination would not be bad, as long as Milbury is not involved.

    PJ Stock irrelevant and who cares…marginal NHLer at best who gets too much tv time and radio time. Less PJ Stock is a good thing.

  105. Fred D says:
    • Far too many people “think” that organic is automatically safer. If you eat organic pesticide you will be no further ahead than if you ate inorganics pesticide.
    •  Organics are usually sprayed more often than conventional fruits and vegetables because the chemical used doesn’t do the job, but it’s organic.
    • The fuel pollution for the extra sprays is much greater.

     

    Example: Look up the organic poison-Rotenone. Also, try smelling organic liquid lime sulphur-terrible.

     

    “Organic” is an overused word.

  106. HugeHabsFan says:

    lol! I love my Cammy, but I was just complaining of the same! *sigh*  Hope he is good to go tomorrow night??

    ………..

    “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!”

    I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

    2nd dumbest rule in hockey: Delay of game for shooting the puck over the glass… intentional or not

    lol your such a goof :)

  111. RGM says:

    He knows full well Max Pacioretty’s name. There’s an article on the Globe and Mail website that was linked here Sunday morning about Cherry “ripping” on Geoff Molson. Somehow my post in the comments section got to be the second-most-popular one there, simply for stating:

    Your article omits that Cherry feigned ignorance and asked his sidekick what the name of the player was that got injured. Right then and there, I knew that he didn’t care about Max Pacioretty. He does this all the time. He pretends to not know the names of European players and thus mangles them. People buy it as being some folksy thing, but the reality is that it’s a sign of his utter disrespect for these players. He demonstrated that he has no respect for Max Pacioretty, and that’s fine, because most rational people have very little respect for Cherry. It’s well past time for him to be replaced with a progressive voice that will speak up for the players.

    I look forward to the day that CTV takes over the broadcast rights to hockey on Saturday nights. I can only hope they use the wide and deep talent pool already on TSN.

    Go Habs Go!

  112. avatar_58 says:

    I told myself not to watch Cherry, I knew I wasn’t going to like it. “whats his name again?”

    Are you kidding me? The guy has been the only thing in the sports news since it happened. It’s not even just sports news either, which harper, ignatieff, air canada, via rail, the police, etc etc etc the list goes on.

    Yet Don didn’t even bother to remember Max’s name. Yet if I asked him who the leading Marlie goal scorer is, he’d know. If I asked who won the most faceoffs for the leafs, he’d know. The latest horific concussion victim at the hands of a bruin? Who’s that again?

    He’s irrelevant anyway, but allowing him national air time is BS

  113. HalifaxHabs says:

    Not that TSN is any better, but guys like Cherry & Milbury make me look forward to the day CBC loses hockey all together, and it’s all on TSN & Sportsnet.

    When all your main personalities are that blatently bias, you don’t deserve to keep your broadcast rights.

    Reminds me of a line from My Cousing Vinny

  115. longtimehabsfan says:

    Ric Martin dead at 59.  One of the greats.  Member of the famed French Connection line along with Gil Perreault and Rene Robert.

    Martin was involved in one of the scariest moments in NHL history which was one of the catalysts for the mandatory helmet rule.  In a game in the late 70s he landed on the back of his head and layed motionless for minutes. 

  116. habsfan_61 says:

    first, get well mr. farber love to read your stuff.

    second, cherry is just another puppet. he cant stand anything mtl. since his teams were/still our bi&&&ches.

    getting sick of this blaming the arena for what happened last week.

    i dont think anything will come out of the gm’s meeting this week.

    would love to see the laffs by the last game be on the bubble of the playoffs and we beat them that april evening at the acc. in order to eliminate them and have them cry.

  117. Captain aHab says:

    Funny thing on Marinaro as he had been dissing Cherry all morning and one of his callers asked him why he had the Cherry spot on his show if he hated him so much…..seemed uncomfortable for a bit there ;-D

    What happened to you (vacuous) calling me ‘vapid’?

     V: Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you, and you may call me V.

    HH: Are you like a crazy person?

    V: I’m quite sure they will say so.

    You are so flaky it’s not even funny.

    You should read Stanislav Lem. I love the short story about how mankind started from some aliens dumping garbage on the planet and accidentally sneezing in it.

  132. Everlasting1 says:

    I never asked for your response.

    How about doing a search before inserting foot in mouth? ‘Elohim’ is plural for ‘gods’, and as I’ve stated many times, I believe these so-called gods were alien entities. You can believe what you will, makes no diff to me.

    Are you an idiot or so just like provoking people? WTF is your Elohim qoute about? Aren’t you the douchebag who was crying up and down about how trading away Halak and keeping Price was going to be the end of the Habs? Everybody knows you’re demigod, or were.

    If I was a wavelength you’d be a rubber band twanging.

  137. Everlasting1 says:

    You are frightfully trying at times, HH. I never claimed God created man. You and I are not on the same wavelength, perhaps it’s time for you to tune out.

    It’s not my fault you have a limited grasp on things. It comes with having a low IQ. BTW. Man created God in His image. Not the other way around.

  141. Everlasting1 says:

    Coming from one who worships Howard Stern..

    AJ’s turned down big $ contracts from major networks but didn’t want to compromise himself and his work. Sure he can come off as an alarmist, but for good reason! You can’t fault him for his conviction and integrity.

    It’s not what you say it’s how you say it. I can’t listen to that dude for more than 3 words.

    I am totally into the upstream media. I also look at both sides and aim for synthesis of ideas. I see many ideas within both the left and the right, the religious and atheist that compel me. It’s when either extreme speaks or one side claims to have a monopoly on the truth that I tune out.

  144. fbkj says:

    alex jones has his moments but hes also a fricking opportunist, hes always anti establishment, its how he makes his bank

    i do like his attitude about certain things

    i loathe the way he latches onto horsesh[t at the same time

  145. HardHabits says:

    So you put your faith in the lunatic fringe?

  146. Everlasting1 says:

    I just don’t trust mainstream media.
