Where did I say "way" more better?





even more better



Seriously, do you just read what you want to read?

So, just because you have been to more sporting events then I have, automatically makes you more knowledgeable?

Any Joe can go to many sporting events, that doesn't mean anything in terms of knowing more then someone else. Seriously how far are you reaching here?

The Penguins were the 4th safest bet to go all the way last season? Try 10th.

^ Which is in direct association to the Las Vegas gambling committee, which means that those were the actual Vegas odds from Aug 2007.





AND I have a better than Grade 6 vocabulary, to boot.



Are you serious?





Sorry, but after you lost that guy to Detroit, your chances went way downhill.
What is his name?
You know the guy.
Oh yeah.
TY CONKLIN



Yeah, you should be the last one to talk about anyone’s grade school vocab. Not to mention debating like a grade schooler by putting personal insults into your debates, just because you have a hard enough time being intelligent to debate me other wise. Next time, try not to be so hypocritical, it helps.....





If you honestly believe I was serious in saying the loss of Ty Conklin was going to affect the Pittsburgh Penguins in an adverse manner.




WTF? I was replying to your response about the Penguins going down hill Mr. "you can win a Superbowl with a bad QB." HA. Yeah, don’t talk about me being none educated in a sport or anything else for that matter. Oh, that’s right, you have gone to more sporting events then I have, so you must be more knowledgeable ………

Me a Fool? LOL lets not be hypocritical. Seriously you don't see a diff between "even better" and "way better"?

I’m just amazed that you can use a computer at your age. Have they made it that much easier over the years?

Hey, at least I can admit when I’m wrong with the statistics, but Jesus at least I’m not still posting completely ridiculous garbage that doesn't make any sense over in the football forums, like you have done that so many other people have pointed out to you already and you still won't admit that you are wrong.

Nice way of spinning it, you said and I quote "you can win the superbowl with a bad qb" Name one bad QB that has went through the season, got their teams to the playoffs and won a superbowl, just one?

LOL, you have proven me wrong in football? Where? Last time I checked me and everyone else were making you look like a fool with that statement of yours and you still won't admit that you screwed up after the pounding that you took, of course your from Canada, so that doesn't shock me with your lack of anything in regards to the NFL.

Hey, don’t' be jealous that I can't take off my shirt without people mistaking my cheast as breast.

You have proved nothing about the pens. So I got the poll figures wrong at first big fing deal is that all you got? LOL. You have no facts other then that. All you are saying about the pens is typical opinionated BS. Who is your NHL team? So we can compare them; I guarantee whoever they are minus the Red Wings that they weren't better then the Pens last season.

Doug Williams?

The last time a team that lost the Cup Final the previous year and went back to the Cup Final the next year was the 84 Oilers, so history is not on the Penguins side.

Losing Hossa and Malone will be huge for Pitt.
Also can Malkin rebound from the pounding he took in the playoffs.
He was not the same after that check and other teams know it.

Nice smack talk to start the '08-'09 season!

The Penns did little to improve their roster this year. Satan is very week in the corners and my guess is that Sid the Kid will lobby to have him traded by mid-year. Malkin is fun to watch and Tyler Kennedy certainly showed some grit in the first two games against the Senns but Hossa was a big loss, even Sid acknowledges as much.

The biggest blow to the Penns was the loss of Gonchar & Whitney (due to injury) at the point. I don't think Letang has enough offense yet to contribute on the power-play and fill in for Sergie & Ryan while they are mending their wounds. He already had a bad give away that resulted in a short-handed goal by Spezza.

The Wing's on paper look like a lock to repeat as cup champs...but we all know the game is played on ice and not paper, so it should make for one helluva season.

I think the Yotes might be the surprise pick to make the playoffs this year with a good combination of youth (Mueller, Turris, Porter, Tikhanov), and veteran's (Doan, Jovanoski, Jokinen).

Are you that ignorant about the NFL? You were talking smack about the Giants being 4-0 but yet you say that any team with a bad QB can win a superbowl? This is totally bogus to anyone that’s a real fan of the NFL. Just how many times did you get hammered for that comment again? I mean, this is how clueless you truly are when it comes to the NFL. You can’t have a great defense and a bad QB and think that you are going to win the superbowl. Like I said name one bad QB that has taken their team to the superbowl and won it? I’ll answer that for you, NONE.

Ha, at least I’m not ignorant enough to think a bad QB can take a team to the superbowl or a team that won the superbowl is overrated when they have been playing better then even last year. Dude, seriously, at least what I’m saying about the Pens is in the realm of possibility, where you are just being completely bogus in the NFL topics. Again, how many people pointed that out to you?

Yeah, I’ve heard of that term so why are you the one bringing the knife in the NFL gun fights? The hypocrisy continues dude.

I don’t know you tell me breast man.

Wait a minute; you just said that the penguins are going downhill from here. I read that perfectly in your first post towards me. Under what grounds can you state that as a fact?

My skills in sports are bad, Is some sort of joke? You couldn’t debate your way out of a paper bag in the NFL topics.

So if my debating skills are pathetic then yours must be deplorable, considering I have you have made so many hypocritical statements, I stopped laughing two post back.

You’re too fun to mess with, because you get bent out of shape. Calm down it's cool. LOL

WHAT? They came as close as 29 others? From what I recall, the finals only had 2 teams in it and, regrettably, the Pens were the runner-up. I'd say they did better than the other 29. As we say in Pgh, goodluck Smack this year, you j@g-off.

That was POF servers timing out that caused that. I didn't mean to post it twice.

No but being a real fan of the sport puts you in a better position of knowing what goes on around the league then someone that isn't a real fan.

Ben didn't have a good game in Superbowl XL I’ll give you that, but he had a solid QB rating in the last 6 games leading up to the playoffs to get them to the playoffs on top of his solid QB rating in the playoffs up until the Superbowl. That's what got the Steelers to the Superbowl. If he played just one bad game during that whole run they would have not gotten into the playoffs altogether. That's why I said you can't have a bad QB and expect anything out of your team regardless if you have a solid defense. Hell the Ravens are a prime example of that. The Ravens have had a good defense for years, but their QB problems since the 01 season hasn't gotten them hardly anywhere since then.

How was it easy to beat then Pens and why wasn't close? They went to 6 games; it couldn't have been that easy or that not close. If you ask any Red Wing player that played in the Stanley cup finals last year and ask them the same question if the Pens were easy to beat last year, they would prob all disagree with you. It's not like they swept the Pens. Now they did find a lot of holes in the Pens high flying offence but they are still a young team so I’m not going to really judge them for that just yet.

LOL, yeah I agree. ratherb is fun to screw with isn't he.

See I will respect a guy like you at least you have a sense of what you are talking about in terms of sports in general.

Calder and possibly Norris trophy nominee Luke Schenn leads the way tonight with a pair of helpers and Blake, Hagman and Kulemin lead us to our first point(s) of the season.


Thank God, Pucky is back!

Avery has that ability to divide a dressing room....He's done it everywhere else, why not in Dallas too?


Yeah, he's a nutbag, but he's got nothing on big Bert.

I dunno if the Leafs will make the playoffs this season but last year's Leafs would never have come back from a 2-0 deficit in the 3rd period and score 5 goals in 5 minutes.

I turned the LEAF game on last night with about 10 mins left in the 3rd period. Rangers up 2 - 0. Same old same old. watched a minute or so, got up to make a bowl of soup, While in the kitchen I hear the crowd on TV, figure there is a fight, the cheering just went on too long. Soup's hot, I bring it back into TV room. LEAFS have tied it. As I'm putting soup on table, they score again, it's 3 - 2. I take a sip, it's 4 - 2. I don't even get done the soup and it's 5 - 2.

From now on if I'm home Saturday night I make sure I have some Cream of Celery Soup in the cupboard. It's obvious I need to leave the room to make soup for the LEAFS to pick it up!!

Thank me when they bring the Cup home!!
