- Comment on Canadiens legend Jean Béliveau dies at age 83 (2014-12-03 02:12:17)
I'm not a man of many words but I'm very saddened by his passing. I had the great honour and the good fortune to meet him (a handshake, a few words and a smile) and more importantly to watch him play for several glorious years. R.I.P. Monsieur Beliveau and thank you for the memories. My sincere condolences to his wife Elise and the family. Ali B.

sorry but you may have watched soccer (futbol) but in my youth I played it and made it to the national selection of U19 where I came from (in the late 1950's - I quit playing tho b/c of a broken foot). I know a thing or two about soccer and Schweinsteiger's so called diving (as per your derisive definition) was equally, if not more, matched and exceeded by most argentinian players. He was in fact incessantly pushed, pulled, kicked and hit by the argentinian defenders throughout the game. Was he a little hasty in falling in a few cases, probably, but considering all around attitude of most other (if not all) players on any given team when they're pushed and kicked around, I don't consider that excessive diving as you have wrongly put.. Furthermore if you were OK with Germany's win, what was your comment about Klose, Podolski and Ozil for? If you think I'm making this up, pls watch the game again. cheers, Ali B.

Yeah! especially his bloody face from the argentinian elbow was the epitome of acting and diving. I wonder if we watched the same game or maybe you were wearing different (blue and white) glasses. PS: My glasses are clear glass, no colouring btw. Ali B.

Sorry but I believe Ozil was born to Turkish parents in Germany. If we follow your reasoning, maybe PK Subban shouldn't have played for Canada? Cheers Ali B.
- Comment on Defenceman Lernout, forward Audette among Habs’ six draft picks (2014-06-28 15:25:06)
you're right trini; on a pk shot the runner should be running straight and not stuttering his steps (to confuse the goalie) and Neymar did that in the game against Croatia (at the bogus diving penalty Brazil got). And yes at least the goalies are behaving by not moving before the ball is kicked. cheers, Ali B.

Unfortunately I'm not good in that department (web pages) hwvr I'll be happy to contribute as best as I can. Me thinks the better bet for all of us would be to find a combination of channels that will compliment each other in providing the full schedule at a minimal cost (but I'm not holding my breath) FYI, I live in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast. Cheers, Ali B.

Thanks Jim, I'm hoping too but had a rough time since the last Summit though (operations, chemos et al) but I hope we can make to see all the friends again. Cheers, Ali B.

Does anyone know how west coast folks (BC) can get to see all 82 Habs games on TV please? I have RDS but now have to find a combination of alternatives to catch all the games. Inputs/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. On another note, now look out for at least one (possibly more) of our younger D-men being traded away (McDonagh anyone?) but Habs will be more secure to participate in the playoffs the next two years (no, I didn't say we'll or we can win the Cup). I guess we're continuing to build through the draft - good! Ali B.
