So, you’re implying that the reason Maxine dislikes Ovechkin is the result of the Pens winning the cup?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m no Ovechkin fan, but I don’t see the logic in your statement.  Am I missing something? Did Ovechkin poop in the celebration punch?

Obese Ted wants to throw up a video of Ovechkin crushing Mad Max, I just put up the SC finals Game 7 Final seconds where the Pens won the SC & Mad Max had Both Goals!!

I know as a Wings fan this is easy to understand Mad Max has 2 HUGE goals, Ovechkin ..................... HMMMM still waitng for his HUGE goal

And the last time the Mad Capitalizer made a relevant comment was when?

And this comes from the guy who has made, by far, more posts at KK this summer than any one else.

I has nothing to do with The Dead Things!!!

And we’re thrilled that you has nothing to do with the Wings. smile

Wow, your panties got all twisted up that easily?  Pardon me.  I was simply noting that Ted (obese or not) pointed out one potential reason Maxine hates Alex so much and that your “response” was to point at something that had NOTHING to do with the relationship between Max and Alex.  I know that was one of the few proud moments for Pens fans, but pointing to it every time someone reminds you of an unpleasant moment doesn’t make sense.

Why does Talbot seem to be getting more grief for calling OV a douche, than OV gets for actually being a douche?

The couple times I’ve seen him interact with fans, or at corporate functions, he did all he could to make his boys shut down fans, and autograph sessions.  He is a douche for many reasons, and just because Talbot didn’t want to get into specifics doesn’t mean he has no reason himself to believe this.

Oh Right right right right right right…I had just glanced at my droid to try and find it.

Trying to be impartial here…but I couldn’t think of a better response than that video.  Now, whether or not a response was needed is a different matter.  But it’s not like Talbot’s comments were necessary either.

All in good fun.

Just once, JUST ONCE, I’d like to read a frickin’ post dealing with the Pens or Wings and not read these childish, immature comments over and over and over again…. You guys act like you’re a bunch of 10 year-old girls…..

Sometimes I just want to pack up rather than deal with this bullshit for another season….

Have no fear Tony, when the new site is up and running, members will have the option of blocking other member comments, so if they wish to fight, they can fight between themselves while others won’t have to read it.

I hate deleting members from posting, but it will start happening and has happened recently.

there are other sites where this type of bickering happens, this will not be one of them.

Talbot said he dislikes Ovechkin because of the way he acted when they met, he gave him the benefit of doubt after hearing things about him, but their meeting confirmed those rumours.

I’m sure Ovechkin was already on Talbot’s ‘bad side’ for the heat involved in the matchup between the Capitals and Penguins, taking runs (out of his way) at Crosby and Malkin, kneeing Gonchar, and quite possibly his public persona. Maybe he feels butt-hurt because of that youtube hit, but I’m sure it’s at the bottom of his list.

Ted Leonsis said ‘My dick is this big and Ovechkin’s is ten times that.’
Evilpens said ‘Oh yeah? Talbot’s dick is this big, and mine is not far behind.’

Stupid.

This comment is probably even dumber, and I don’t know what my point is.

Doesn’t this all get annoying for anyone else? A stupid comment is made (in the comment section), read it and leave it, no one is going to be convinced or persuaded or impressed by anything.


Is Mad Men the type of show that one should really watch from season one? Or can I jump into season four?

I made the mistake of renting the first season last week and now I’m almost done the third.

Every season builds on the last.  I don’t think what’s happening in the third season would make a lot of sense without knowing the previous seasons.

Also, Pens suck.

JJfromKansas is pretty reasonable too.

I was wondering about the same thing as far as Mad Men goes actually.

Got it…but I appreciate you looking out for me, Paul - you’ve always been a good friend that I’ve never met in person…tried to at Herm2Hockeytown, but you busted out before I got a chance to say ‘hi’ nor could I make it to your place for the Wings game the day after.

What are you doing…say around…March 11, 2011?

Paul,

Your response is akin to Buick building a car which catches on fire and having the CEO of GM shrug his shoulders while saying, “Not my problem.”

It’s a blog hosted under your umbrella. If you’re going to puff out your chest and trump some sort of moral standard, why shouldn’t they be universal?

I’m all for free speech, but some consistency with whatever standards are here would be nice as well.

It simply reflects poorly on you.

I saw Paul’s response as being more akin to ABC Family running ‘The 700 Club’ and putting a disclaimer before the program stating that the views expressed in this program do not necessarily reflect the views of the network.

Claude, it is up to you to take my advice.  Since you don’t want to, you have other options.

Don’t read it or write a blog about your issue and post it at the KK Member Blog section,

Was just trying to help you with your problem.

Paul, correct me if I’m wrong but, I assume blog writers are given a little more latitude when it comes to controversy.  Without controversy there would be no blogs… I personally dislike The Puck Stops Here… but I take your advice and I don’t read it.  When are these people going to educate themselves and understand that A2Y is a Red Wing Blog written by a Red Wing Fan for other Red Wing fans?  Please, please, please don’t read it if you don’t like it… oh, and good riddance.  cheese

One thing I will note about the new KK coming in September, KK Members will have the ability to block certain blogs from the homepage.

Meaning, if you don’t want to read KK Hockey, you check a box in your profile and it will not appear on the KK Homepage.

It still can be read by going to the blog directly, but then it is your choice to go and no blog will be forced upon you.

Folks who just read KK and are not members, will not have that option.

I’d like to stress that in my previous rant at no time did I specify A2Y or solely Wings fans, nor was it my intention to infer that…. It comes from both sides of the aisle….

I’d also like to point out that THIS post is not a A2Y post as well….

Not really trolling..

“a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into a desired emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.”

Some people call it “venting.”
