It's great that they're optimistic, but this picture is just ridiculous
You can't brag about how it's home to Fortune 500 companies, when only 2 are actually in Detroit, and everything else is in the Metro area.

I think Brian said he would eat the lemon if Yuri chose Colorado over Michigan. But since we pulled his offer, there was never really a choice to be made
|6 days 13 hours ago||Because god forbid that a||
Because god forbid that a college football site has trash talk between rivals. You've said it a few times, but what exactly has Phork gotten away with here? Not saying nice things about Michigan? In all of his posts he keeps it about the games and teams, and I've never seen him use a personal attack before.
What's the big deal here?

I don't know why Hard Gay downvoted it, but I did because I don't think we need a new "There are...." post every other day. I can do basic subtraction

I think the bug issues you're thinking of were for the beta/first release. It's up and running fine now

|1 week 3 days ago||If the big issue is privacy||
If the big issue is privacy for individual people shouldn't we have nuked every single topic/post about Manti Te'o and his fake GF? It's not related to on the field stuff, why does it need to discussed what he does in his free time?
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't think he's been||
I don't think he's been banned, if you search for his name, you can still click on his profile and see what posts he's made
|1 week 4 days ago||I think it's been discussed||
I think it's been discussed before, and it all comes down to Moderation. As of now there's only 2-3 mods on staff (justingoblue, LSAClassof2000, and occasionally Zone Left). They're all volunteers, and if we add in an OT forum, that means either more work for them, or finding new moderators for the OT stuff
|1 week 4 days ago||Has anyone really been banned||
Has anyone really been banned though? I mean GhostofYost, this OP, and people in the Beckmann thread just lost their points, and I wouldn't call that getting banned.
Edit: Nevermind, I guess Ghost did get banned
|1 week 6 days ago||1, I don't think anybody||
1, I don't think anybody would fire a coach after one year, no matter how disappointing their first season was.
2, I think we would have had a good chance to make it to the Title Game, but probably would have lost to Miami. I mean that team was stacked, they had like 17 or 18 1st Round NFL picks. We probably could have kept it closer than Nebraska, which didn't even win their conference.

What about Bacari Alexander? Half of his tweets are #HALOL. Does he get a pass from you? Or is that not allowed

Nah, I don't mind the ads. They're only at the bottom, and they disappear when you enter a thread, so it's all good with me
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I don't think anybody is||
I don't think anybody is trying to say these injuries caused the Wings to lose; it's just a tradition of sorts to see what horrible injuries these guys were playing with

I thought this was pretty good:
I dunno why, but just picturing Mattison acting like a middle school bully just makes me crack up
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I feel the same about Filp as||
I feel the same about Filp as I did Hudler. I don't *want* him to leave, but I just can't justify keeping him for the amount of money he wants with the production he has.
As far as Brunner, I could see that happening. Assuming Helm is healthy, we could roll something like this:
Franzen - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Brunner - Zetterberg - Nyquist
Andersson - Helm -
Miller - Emmerton - Eaves
I'm a bit stumped about Franzen and Cleary though. If we ditch Franzen, we'll need someone for the first line (Horton maybe?) and we could use some more meat on the 3rd Line (assuming Andersson can play wing)

Or a 43 year old father wanted to spend more time with his 4 kids while they grow up.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think the buyouts aren't||
I think the buyouts aren't like normal buyouts, but more like releasing a player. The salary won't count against the Cap, but the player receives a salary 1/3 or 2/3 or his original contract depending on his age (if you're over/under 26). So really, they could buy Franzen out no problem, it's just that if he's bought out, the Red Wings can't renegotiate a new contract with him for 1 year.
So essentially it's just a release. If the Wings don't want to buy Franzen out, I could see them using 1 on Samuelsson, since he's got a 3 million cap hit

1. That's a stupid rumor about Babcock/Datsyuk, where did you hear it from? Because it hasn't shown up pretty much anywhere
2. Pavel probably will go back to the KHL....in 2014 when his contract expires, or maybe a little later if we get him to sign a 2 year extention or so. But even if he wanted to go to the KHL right now he can't. The NHL and KHL have a transfer agreement, where if one player is under contract in one league, he can't jump ship for the other league
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Filp, Cleary, Brunner,||
Filp, Cleary, Brunner, Miller, and White are UFA's. Andersson, Nyquist, Smith, and Kindl are RFA's.
I think we'll definitely resign all 4 RFA's, and sign Brunner and Miller. Cleary is probably a favorite to be resigned, White is probably gone for PT somewhere, and with Filp it just depends on how much money he wants

Not necessarily. They've got 2 buyouts they can use over the next two years
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||It's disappointing but to||
It's disappointing but to call this an "epic collapse" and "fucking pathetic" is just one of those "Post-loss GhostofYost Meltdowns (trademarked)".
This isn't the Maple Leafs blowing a 3 goal lead, this was the Wings luck finally running out, and all the makeshift patches finally giving

And the overreaction of the night goes to you!
Yes, Smith was bad, but let's let a player (Smith) play more than 70 games before we decide to "dump him"

It's almost like one team had 77 points in 48 games and won the President's Trophy, and the other team managed to get hot at the right time to sneak into the playoffs despite having a .500 record all season
