  1. Anyone else watch on the SN Now app on the Amazon Fire Stick? I've never had issues with it, but the few games i've watch the last week or so are really choppy.
  2. 100%! There are a few, but Taj1944 & Uncle Laleet stand out...nothing but hate for Benning and attacking this team at every opportunity. Sadly, the media and some fans eat up everything they say / do. You know they're not fans because they're never positive or cheering for the team to succeed or do well and they can't even give praise or credit where credit is do. Not everything the team does is a f up or negative no matter what they think or say. Sadly, there is a few on here just like that. I can only speak for myself, but i'm excited about this team and for this season!!!
  3. Great interview! Totally nailed it on a few points...no class is right!! As i've said before, the media and some of this fan base aren't fans, just negative, hateful, ignorant, entitled & immature people that have nothing better to do than attack this team and those that work / play for it. Sad really!
  4. Sounds like Borderline Canuck is a Borderline Fan!
  5. Still acting immature, ignorant & negative i see!! Nice to see that after mostly avoiding this place for months because of this stuff, this is what people get to come back to at the beginning of a new / exciting season! Grow up!!!!!
  6. So in the presser, they acknowledged / gave credit to Benning for doing a great job this off-season and for their contracts...maybe the media and some of the fan base should take note! Plus, its their opinion that matters most.
  7. Yeah, not sure what's going on. It seems to be getting worse. Lol!
  8. Anyone else using sportsnet app on the firestick. Usually it's good, but it's choppy tonight. I assume it's SN signal.
  9. I guess it's not the end of the world, but I grabbed his jersey last year. Oh well!
  10. You just don't stop do you!!! Grow up and go outside / do something else ffs!!
  11. Can you let me know what it's like to be perpetually negative, immature and seeking attention on a hockey forum?! Just curious!
  12. I don't disagree that it should come down (keep in mind the innocent until proven guilty), but let's be real, it will get done. Do you really think it will just be left there or that they want it there?! Maybe they're waiting on a new one(s) to replace it / them. Let them take care of business without it being made into something it's not or making a bigger issue out of it than it needs to be, which is what the media is doing...and this is just one of many many examples.
  13. Yet, some defend the media here. While this is about one banner, it really does speak to the overall issue with the media here. They truly are horrible. No wonder agents / players have called them out!
  14. Ohhh...it's one of you people again going at Benning and ruining a perfectly good thread! Maybe the handful of you should take a break from here until the season starts...and if it continues beyond that, that would be even better!
  15. You need to stop twisting it (posting it multiple times) and trying to force a negative agenda!! Go find a report that is translating / dipicting the interview correctly first and foremost...because it's not being reported correctly by most. And, yes he did say some positive things. Also, his agent and the reporter have been on the radio to clarify / say it's being blown out of proportion.
  16. Posted in other thread, but though i'd share here as well... First, i agree with most that this is completely blown out of proportion by the media / some fans. Of course he should want to win. That's a good thing! Second, i think this just reaffirms what some of us where saying about it being time to transition from rebuilding / retooling and drafting high to starting to win more games, make the playoffs and hopefully win a cup! Not only is it time (you can't rebuild / draft high forever) because, well, it's time, but clearly it's what the players (especially core ones) want / deserve! This is also why some of us suggested that waiting another year (as some suggested) to do what Benning did this off season would have been the wrong move / would have waisted a year. Third, i hope most people (including players) realize that this last season truly was a bump in the road for obvious reasons. While i think there was a ways to go / adjustments to be made, they were trending in the right direction and i think the bubble was an example of that. Anyway, just a few thoughts and i think this off-season was definitely a step in that direction and i'm looking forward to sept / oct!

  18. Vancouver media / some fans make people want to.....
  19. I'm not going to look too much into it, but i totally agree with you...and it just seems odd and an immature thing to do.
  20. This is the exact stuff that is an issue on these boards and that myself / others are trying to bring attention to / weed out, but again, people calling it out are being dealt with and not the people that are the source of the issue! The OP put a large amt of effort into the post (was really good) and instead of a constructive discussion, you post this **** and surprise, crap on Benning again. But, yeah, no one has a agenda on here! Come on now!!
  21. I guess you missed the part about change of scenery / playing on our team??? You do realize players can and do play differently on different teams, because things like change of scenery, environment, coaches & teammates play a role in how a player plays. There's literally hundreds of examples of it.
