Not that there is anything wrong with that.

It's kinda like voting... hold your nose and pick a side. Seriously, I'm thinking of supporting Verizon on a price-related issue???? The armageddon is surely upon us!

I hate everything about ESPN and begrudgingly watch only live sports events.
ESPN’s subscriber price is $5.54. 400% more than next most expensive national network.

That's what I was thinking of too... that and at the time of this reply, there are 33 comments in a discussion about scrimmage attendance.

Troll on clown. It's clear you don't understand what dead money means.

It's a Ted Nugent classic. I've never heard it on the radio outside of Michigan though. You should download the MP3!

You need to start dealing in FACTS rather than emotion.
Mayhew says the same draft day stuff as Millen -- meaning taking what they think is the best player on the board rather than filling a need. Face it, Ebron was a wasted pick.
Mayhew is a fucking disaster when it comes to contracts. Under him, the Lions have regularly had the most dead money in the league. That goes back to BEFORE Suh too!!!!
I don't blame Mayhew necessarily though; it's the Fords. Before Mayhew was Millen, before Millen was Thomas -- it's all the same shit but different toilet.

Old management??? Mayhew says the exact same things Millen did. How is Ebron management getting better???

What did Filppula do while here?
To be fair regarding the defense, Holland didn't know Fischer was gonna have a medical and Rafalski was going to retire. Those hurt -- combined with Smith not developing.

The Browns drafted Stockar McDougle, Joey Harrington, Charles Rogers, Mike Williams, Ernie Sims, Gosder Cherilus, Riley Reiff, Ezekiel Ansah, Eric Ebron?

|2 days 10 hours ago||Detroit's defense is plain||
Detroit's defense is plain awful. Not one of them would be top 4 on about 24 other teams in the league. Smith isn't progressing, cannot count on Quincey, Ericsson is soft.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I looked and for the last||
I looked and for the last equal number of games down the stretch (6 per, last 12 Wings games total), both Howard and Mrazek are nearly identical in most stats. Just a few notes: both goalies gave up 16 goals, both of Mrazek's wins were shutouts, Howard has 1 more win.
Again... I'm not favoring one goalie over the other. I think they are both good. Just shaking my head at the notion Mrazek is so much better than Howard.
I think Howard is hurt. I tore my rectus from the hip once and it was 6 months of hardcore PT just to jog without pain again. I know these are pro athletes with training staffs but you don't come back from a groin injury 100% after a month.
|2 days 10 hours ago||It's also really bad to say||
It's also really bad to say that "Mrazek clearly has a much better goals agains [sic] average" then.
|2 days 11 hours ago||So much for the conventional||
So much for the conventional wisdom that Mrazek is more consistent than Howard. Hint: they're not. They have the same stats and the same shitty defense in front of them
Personally, I don't have a problem with either goalie. Just calling out the silliness of this board convinced one is the vastly superior to the other.
It's been that way forever in Detroit. Steffan sucks so let's get Cheveldae. Chevy sucks so let's get Osgood. Osgood and Vernon both suck. Howard sucks so let's get Mrazek.
Neg away folks!
Hmmm... Detroit won 3-2.
814 East U:
Howard's GAA is 2.44 Mrazek's is 2.38. A difference of 0.06. Clearly.

It's just fashionable to blame Howard in Detroit.

It was 1996 Wings v Avs in the WCF... at McNichols Arena. Since there are a fair number of Michigan ex-pats on the Front Range, there was a good Wings fans presence in attendance during this series... Much to the chagrin of the Aveholes who suddenly jumped on the bandwagon of inheriting one of the NHL's top teams and weary of the Broncos and Saint Elway getting blown out in Super Bowls.
Anyway, we're in the nosebleeds and I run into someone I casually knew from high school -- and his mom was my first soccer coach in grade school. Small world. This is 10 years later too. We're all in the same row. My entire row is Detroit fans and the entire row behind us is Aveholes.
In 1996, Coloradans couldn't even spell "N-H-L". The Denver Post didn't cover hockey -- this was before Woody Paige sexually harassed any female which crossed his path and Terri Frei wanted to have a love child with Joe Sakic. If the DP published NHL standings and box scores, it was on the last page. AFTER the greyhound results. During those first couple of seasons, an announcer in hushed tones would come over the PA at stoppages in play to explain it to the crowd... you'd hear "offside" or "icing" after the whistle in the background over the PA. I shit you not. No wonder the first franchise moved to NJ to become the Devils. I say all this to illustrate what kind of fan base we're dealing with here. Even Sparty would go, "damn"!
So Detroit scores, my acquaintance's wife stands up to celebrate the goal, and some idiot behind her punches her in the back of the head. Now, McNichols is more narrow than The Joe. Your knees rest on the shoulders of the person in front of you... so when she gets punched, she goes flying forward a couple of rows. Her husband proceeds to beat the shit out of the clown who sucker punched his wife. As that's going down a couple of seats over, the kid behind me wants to dump his beer on my head. I grab him by the shirt and tell him not to even think about it.
5 rows further up, there's a seedy looking row of all Detroit fans. They must have blew up their trailer making meth in rural Livingston County or something and made their way west to avoid prosecution -- they'd be safe as the Californication of Colorado was still in it's infancy then and people here minded their own business.
I make eye contact with one of them while holding on to the little bastard who wanted to give me a shower. The guy I make eye contact with says to me just holler if we need any help. As I begin to say no, I got this, they start heading down. When they start heading down, other Aveholes from other rows get up to join the fray.
Next thing I know, the entire fucking section is brawling. It was like the last scene in Slapshot when the Hansons go into the stands to confront the fan who threw something at them. Security comes over and throws the entire fucking section out.
I cut my losses and left. Detroit lost the game too so it didn't matter. I had a security clearance at the time and was younger and more impressionable so I was afraid of getting into trouble. I despise Colorado sports fans to this day. At worked I took great pleasure in reminding the Aveholes that Detroit just made the playoffs for the 24th straight season while the Avs were eliminated. AGAIN. Ha!

Free tix, no tix, tix for a coke, it doesn't matter. If sections are empty, but the ticket is still counted, that's bullshit... and that's what happened this past season.

Funny coincidence... I just got done reading that article. I thought. So what! We commented in here all season long there was no fucking way the 100,000 streak should still continue.
We're homers... but we're honest homes.
