  1. The greatest footballer of all time. The only other to even belong in the conversation is Messi. Diego mean't so much to the people of Naples and the majority of southern Italy. He is truly a god amongst men in many places. My grandfather saw him play in 1985 in Italy. Our family's club is Udinese who had another footballing legend, Zico, on the team. It was a tremendous match in which both players were a class above the rest.
  2. Some of Benning's more "suspect" personnel decisions had big games today. Sutter, Beagle, Roussel were all stellar

      Teams record since Eriksson returned?  Team was awful on PK without him, he really does excel at that side of the game.. Not $6M good, but I'll give him the respect he deserves.  Thought he was dangerous a couple times last game, and was good tonight too.

      @-AJ- I thought Loui was good too. Myers takes dumb penalties, has the occasional bad turnover, but he adds bite that we sorely need on our roster imo

      all of those guys are working hard and paying the price for it. 

  3. Travis Yost (Hockey Analytics guy) made headlines today by putting Elias Pettersson as 3rd on his Hart Vote Ballot. What has ensued was a "battle" on twitter about who was the Canucks most valuable player this past year, Marky or Elias? All this talk has me personally flaberghasted as I think Quinn Hughes is without a doubt our MVP and best player.

      Weird choice IMO. Petey was fourth for me this year after Markstrom, Miller, and Hughes (in that order). Not to say he had a bad year, but we had three other outstanding players.

       

      In my mind, Markstrom should finish top 5 in Vezina voting this year.

      That is a tough vote, just like how I see the Cyclone Taylor voting going down (whether they have it officially or not).  Each of Miller/ Hughes/ Pete/ Marky bring a needed component but none can do it all without the others either.

      my vote is miller

      marky missed too many key games

      (not his fault, i agree)

      but miller played every game

       

      and had to adjust to a new team.. which he did seamlessly.. mostly because he played his game and others adjusted to him

      and i really really like ep.. .but miller did have to take so may face offs (which he did at an elite level) as petey is still lacking in that area

      ep40 needed him more then the reverse

      Media broken, my man.

  5. So Yoko Ono and Bryan Adams are both trending. Adams sent out a unprofessional tweet about Covid that isn't racist (yet people are assuming it is), and a large contingent of twitter are cancelling him. At the same damn time, people are praising Yoko Ono despite the fact that she used the N word in her music, was an adulter, and drove John Lennon into addiction. 

     

    Seriously? People are wild.

      @Squamfan you can criticize the practices of different cultures without it being necessarily racist.  People that are offended often conflate the two.

      As the saying goes "Just because you are offended,Doesn't mean you are Right".

      Some people aren't satisfied with their lives so they sit in the basement at Moms house and Bitch on "Social Media".or is it "Not so Social Media".

      @NewbieCanuckFan 

      From a young age John was a tortured insecure lost man who was manipulated by Yoko when he became famous

      Not long after they met, Yoko repeatedly used to stalk the gate outside John’s and Cynthia’s Kenwood estate, before eventually being invited in from the rain out of pity by Cynthia and her mother

      Just after Johns murder, Yoko sent Julian a cheque for $1 (which he framed)

       

       He since sued her and got a settlement (Most likely not to bad mouth Yoko to keep receiving)

      John Lennon said in his very last radio interview (just hours before he was shot and killed) that like most young men he was more involved with his career than with his child, and he said he regretted not spending enough time with Julian. He also said that he and Julian would have a relationship in the future but sadly they both were deprived of this.

       

      I never lived his life and would not judge him myself

      As far as him not being a nice person ?,

      You are talking about what John was like when he was a psychologically messed up 21 year old guy, not the pro-feminist, nurturing house husband and father he remarkably became and walked away from the drugs and the music industry to "Watching the Wheels"

       

      John was a man of peace...grown from a boy of violence...he grew and changed and he wanted to see the world do the same

      I think he brought a lot of joy to Millions of people , (just in his music  alone), far more than most men have (and continues too) than he ever hurt in his life

      How many people that judge him, can say they have reached that many people positively?

       

      No-one is a saint, in death or in life and should refrain from judging someone else, especially if they were not affected - it is not like he was a murderer, he was murdered and used his powerful influence for World Peace, Women being a pro feminist, before it was popular and Minority Rights

       

      I don’t believe John Lennon was some saint, some perfect role model, or the embodiment of peace and love. I believe he was a human with a good heart, but not without his flaws. In his words, he was a “violent man who [had] learned not to be violent”. He had the capacity to recognize and regret his flaws, and change for the better. He wasn’t a “bad” person, or a “good” person - nobody is. It’s far more nuanced than that. His path of change does not erase his violent past with his father etc, but it is still commendable. In my eyes, his reflection on his younger self’s behavior, along with his progress away from that redeems his character. I believe that if he wasn’t killed, he would have continued to prove himself to be a better person.

       

      You might want to see where someone came from, how he rallied for causes, how he changed his life from what he knew as only a child to who he was as he died

       

      With all that John went through and the pressures and how he transformed himself

      He changed for the better, 

      Why slander his name

      I for one am glad there was a John Lennon

       

       

      .

       

      That is my opinion on speaking ill of this dead man,

      Keep yours if you will

  6. Just finished Ozark season 3. It was fantastic. Like seriously brilliant. If you have yet too watch it, please do.

      Agree. Very dark season, but the acting was great. Laura Linney was exceptional. So far it hasn't been renewed for Season 4. Fingers crossed.

      @Curmudgeon If they end it like that, I would be very disappointed.

  9. Am I the only one that doesn't see the issue with a Barrie trade? If it is Stetcher plus a pick, it is still a net positive from a talent perspective for a run this spring. It would be rental. Stetch isn't coming back either way.

      2 different players. Each bring something totally different.

      Barrie seems a bit redundant with Hughes....

  10. Just coming to grips with the massive figures that Southern California has lost the last 12 months. First Nipsey Hussle, and now Kobe Bryant. Those two inspired millions. Its a sad world

    1. Alflives

      Do you mean Nipsey Russell, the comedian?

      Kobe did some bad stuff, but he sure has a lot of people who love him too.  It’s like he’s the OJ Simpson of this generation.  Loved and almost worshipped, but had another side to him that few really knew about.  

  11. Imagine meeting a girl so pretty that your heart skips a beat every time you even think of her. Imagine her having a beautiful sense of compassion, caring, and understanding. Sounds wonderful right? Now imagine her looking into your eyes genuinely, drawing you in, then she flips a switch and begins playing you like a fiddle.

      Attraction is super important when you first meet someone..... but it will never be enough to keep you invested in the relationship........

       

      Watched a show recently... talked about the rocket needing enough fuel / jet fuel for the take off......

      But that won't keep the rocket going just on its own.....  

       

      Or something like that... i was a couple glasses of Shiraz in by that point.....

  14. Anybody hear what happened at York University yesterday?

    Insane scenes. Don't be divisive people.

     

    That being said, I have know idea how you can have a conscious supporting a group like Hamas

  15.  

    This video hits me in the feels. Almost 4 years since my last game. I miss it.

     

    Let your kids play HS football. You would be hard pressed to find a more meaningful experience in sports. I mean that.
