- Comment on Bouillon an insurance policy at Habs’ training camp (2014-09-18 10:31:57)
Miss Weed Wacker, I would prefer you count down the hours. 480 hours to go....479 hours to go....478 hours to go....etc...etc. Perhaps when the season ended they could start the next season 2 weeks later, would cut down on the agony of too much time on one's hands. e.g. the season ends June 17th, you have the draft and free agent signings the next day.....and start new season July 1st. Suggestion, maybe you need a bigger container to hold all of your 'glee'. You need all the glee you can handle.

Actually an insurance policy for Therien not to lose his job, because of losing too many games. It is the teams managements job to think of all the negative possiblities. Tinordi breaks his leg, Markov runs into knew problems, P.K. is concussed.....whoops we have to go to Hamilton to bring up rookie defensemen. No wait we have extra's kicking around to put into action. Management is so smart, they think of everything.

Regarding Boulion. Try to think in terms of 8 or 9 defensemen. 6 playing....two upstairs, being rotated in and out of line up as necessary. Think of injuries, think of rookie growing pains, think of Boulion there to shore things up when necessary. If the kids are ready, then Boulion sees little action unless there is a couple of injuries (you can count on injuries, sometimes more then one. So you can see the logic, or can you. Experience vrs youth...the youth will take over eventually, but the transition should be as painless as possible.

Word of the day: Succinct (sus sink t) SLY24 presented that word in one of his post to UCE, although I can't imagine UCE being described as succinct. Succcinct....concise, verbal brevity. e.g. You were very SUCCINCT in your presentation. Words from before sycophant, and postulate. Sycophant......self serving, fawning parasite. Postulate.......assume without proof, ask, demand, claim. Thank you sly24

First of all Hobie, don't be sorry. TSN has nothing else to talk about at the moment. It is the G.M.'s job to take the bullet. They said. it was the owners decision. we would have done more, but the owners call the shots. Yea, I get it. The NFL's job is to put a team on the field. If they want that guy on the field, then he will be on the field. If he is 'guilty' then 'due process and the law will take care of him in a court of law. They are only concerned with what goes on in the field. If fans, start protesting and staying away and cancelling cable etc. then that will be a game changer. But, if the fans forget (they will) and it is business as usual, then why should they worry. Scoring, defending and injuries on the field is their concern...accept it.

I think 'waterboys' are obsolete. There hasn't been a waterboy since the 70's. You need to update your 'resume'.

Ian, what about 'dwarf' tossing. Do you think D.D. would go along with that?

Well you are a quick study. Shows you if you pay attention, you can learn new things everyday.

This makes no sense. Owners are the owners, they tell management what to do. G.M. is the voice of the team and therefore must hold news conference. How does one conclude that management was leaning the opposite way? What happens on the field is the only concern of the football team. Selling tickets and winning games is the only concern. If Peterson is guilty of something then the police and 'due process' will take care of it. There job is to field a team and if he is guilty, then police will have to charge him and the D.A. try him. Until that happens your opinion is just that 'an opinion'. You cannot just start rushing to judgement. Remember guilty until proven innocent. Until you get to that point, it is business as usual.

He was probably a 'sycophant'. Do you think he had a reason for being so nice? Is he now your friend? He has a job to do, and it involves being a 'sycophant', do not be fooled.
