In all due respect, young feller, but the gangster sign is what I saw. It was to the side, the peace sign is usually over head. Gangster sign, check out prisoners in prison and this is the sign they use. However...... peace brother.

The enforcer for the sake of enforcer, days are coming to an end. You have to be able to play hockey etc. as well as perhaps be tough. The reason I say this is because of the concusion problem. They have to eliminate cheap head shots from the game and having guys that can fight and thats all will not work. The NFL is being sued by many players and the NHL is noticing and will cut the problem off. Ignorance of the concussion problem will not wash, they are duly worned. The fighting for fightings sake will have to leave the game. Fighting will someday be expulsion from the game and a fine. There is no other way. It will take some time but the cheapshots will be dealt with. Good hard hitting, accidents will happen, but the league will want to have a case if they are sued, to say 'we eliminated fighting'. Players that only fight are being taken out of the game. Within 5 years it will be odd to see a fight. The people who like fighting will have to watch boxing and ufc for there fill.

Errant, I totally agree. To go way back in history for a minute. During the Dillinger, Baby face Nelson, Bonnie and Clyde crime sprees, the cops were out gunned and could not give chase, because they were out horsepowered. The police at the time had to upgrade weapons and get more powerful cars to eliminate the problems and change the rules, so that if you went over state lines it became an FBI case. So the police cannot be out gunned or then you will see society crash. They have to learn from this and move forward. The breaking up of riots need to be handled in a straight forward manner, with brute force. People love to riot, just notice after a team wins a championship. Police have to have methods and means to disperse the trouble makers.

FERGUSON, MISSOURI: Some things bother me about this situation. Police need time to do an investigation, witness statements, police statements, forensics. Why are people assuming anything. He was unarmed, but did he go for the officers gun? Did the officer sustain facial injuries and if he did how did they occur? After the exchange why was he running away? Without any answers people riot and loot, there are many blacks that feel this is not the right thing to do. Thugs were looting stores, for fun it seemed. The police have to be ready to control rioting and need military type equipment. Most people do not want the riots and destruction. Pictures of Mr. Brown posing using gangster signs. Cop may very well be found guilty, but I think the media etc. should allow the investigation by FBI, to be a thorough one. They are labelling the whole police department without really knowing what happened. The cops have a tough job and can never be right. You do not know how you would react in a similiar situation, maybe the cop felt his life was at stake and over reacted. Not trying to justify anything, I would just like to hear the full story before deciding.

Galchenuk will have a break out season when Galchenuk is ready. He is a 20 year old kid. He needs time and has been given time, his game is improving. They are not holding him back, he will go when the time is right, no one can predict that.

Bwoar, If I may, without offending anyone,offer an informed opinion. They do pass the hat, at the end of the year the NHL divides up the bounty 30 ways. The NhL does about 3.5 BILLION dollars...thats billion folks. So Florida gets their cut, and due to creative accounting it is not counted in the running part of the team, which does take a loss, if factored by itself. So the team loses money on the day to day accounting. They gain the money at the year end and by the franchise becoming more valuable. So think accountants, creative accounting at work. If one realizes that it would not make sense to really lose money for 10 years and just keep chugging along. The lock out was to get the revenues back closer to 50/50 so that there would be more revenues for owners to split up. DISCLAIMER, If this information in anyway disturbs the more sensitive posters on this sight, we apologize.

Is that right next to the 'Plato' just down from Socrates. Hey, you are right it is on page 1844, I quote, and Aristotle said man is greater then the sum of his parts. I think it means he is great, but all his parts suck. Geez these books is dusty and they weigh heavy, hard to get it back to the top row. Use alright kid, your kinda swell.

Spout stuff? like what? Cal, I expect more from you. Explain to me, what bothers you to the point that you claim to ignore me. The purpose of this spot is to have a dialogue, step outside your comfort zone and look around, I will not hurt you.

Adidess, hi, nice to meet you. We have not interacted, I don't think. Franco is not a new poster, not sure why that is a concern? Am I really what way in real life, Isn't this real life? Explain 'horrible internet persona', what is this terrible thing you speak of. You will have to tell me more details, I am interested, honest. My attitude baffles you? You see I need more information. I am pretty clear in my communications. I don't believe in the petition. You need some teeth to be taken seriously. Example, we are two million strong and are cutting off all cable hook ups unless our demands are met. Please be brave, do not solicite support (a back bone) and stand alone and lets have a dialogue.
