  1. [Injuries] Canucks 2017/18

    why is it a troll?
  2. I don't think a million dollar spend on art justifies a hundred million dollar spend on sports. "We've wasted a little, so why not waste an order of magnitude more on sports?" is not a sound argument. History has repeatedly shown that there aren't real economic gains from rebuilding stadiums. Its not like the money people spend on hockey games doesn't go elsewhere if there is no hockey. People may not go to bars during/after a game, but they still go to bars anyway. You aren't helping businesses with the new stadium, you are just transferring profit from one area of a city to another. There have been lots of studies done on this. And the notion that people are against the stadium to hate on a rich guy is laughable. The real reason is because anyone who is paying attention has watched this same ol' thing play out in city after city. The owners attempt to leverage the fans to get big amounts of money from the government. A lot of people are very tired of it. I'm against it ever happening in Vancouver and would rather see the Canucks move than see our city pay a ransom, if they ever try it here.
  3. Bitcoin Mining Operation CEO and COO wanted

    you know that its not likely to be profitable at this point right? There are companies that have warehouses of specialised hardware as well as special access to the large quantities of power to run those machines. A few years ago a random person might do good mining, but today its not that likely.
  4. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    You see the media, and the usual nerd ragers and say its "fans" in general. That makes you part of the problem
  5. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Not at all. You post was about how much we don't complain (in contrast to Toronto). We do, and we did loudly. I don't know why people think fans are all that different in any city.
  6. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    did you skip the last few years on this board? Its no better
  7. [PGT] Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Vancouver Canucks

    even subtle encouragement to participate in fan flame wars is weak
  8. Brock Boeser named Rookie of the Month for November

    for 10-20% odds at getting one you mean
  9. The Lack of Toughness and Pushback is Concerning

    its not scary at all. Just because you have your own perceptions of how they should think, doesn't make it actually true. And you know why players give bland statements? Because there's always a gaggle of superfans who "love the game and the team" but feel that they have purchased the right to complain loudly because they bought a ticket. So they do, and one of the things they do is dog pile on any player that says something they don't like. Want players to speak their mind? Have an audience that isn't full of angry reactionaries. But that audience doesn't exist so they have to watch what they say.
  10. The Lack of Toughness and Pushback is Concerning

    So players look to letters on chests for leadership rather than their character? So lets say you had a bunch of tough vocal guys on the team... if you put the C on a non tough guy... the other guys contributions matter less? You think players are that braindead?
  11. GMJB interview: 24.11.17

    The media seems to have stopped harping on his "lack of plan". And somehow I doubt the will ever do a mea culpa on that.
  12. [Waivers] Eddie Lack

    A lot of that love was some people's way of throwing shade on Luongo. Vancouver tends to get crushes on their backups when they are crapping on their starters.
  13. [Waivers] Eddie Lack

    and people have every right to reply to a comment you made on a message board. Kind of a sad mentality to pay money to justify getting all ragey at players though.
  14. Mass Arrests in Saudi Arabia

    Absolutely not... in my other post I clearly said that NO ONE HERE does. Rushing to judgment (and worse yet, a judgment that slots into ones ideology) is what I was criticizing.
  15. Mass Arrests in Saudi Arabia

    I love all the ignorance in this thread. All you Trumpies want SO bad for this to be some "swamp draining" that you are willing to assume any purge somehow plays to your interests. Despite the fact that no one here actually knows whats going on. Not only do you pretend you do, but you also pretend its good news for you.
