Posted Wednesday June 19, 2013, About: Was Crosby robbed of Hart?
If anyone was robbed, it was Tavares (or Toews). You can't miss 1/4 of a season and be an MVP. Crosby got the trophy he deserved. Feel like Ovi should've lost, but only because he disappeared in the playoffs.

After that exchange, Keith really sounds like a ****
Posted Monday March 18, 2013, About: NFL is 'unyielding' on Redskins salary cap penalties
The problem with all of this is that the the players and the fans are the ones who are punished by this. All the NFL has done has diminished the product in DC for two years. Doesn't cost Danny boy anything except maybe a tiny hit to his pride. So, give me a break. Yeah, Danny dumped a bad contract and played around the edges to keep D-Hall. So what? When you withhold that cap money, you are only depriving players of jobs, not punishing Danny boy. You're only forcing the team to cheap out on line-men, thus risking RG III's health even further. That's not punishing Danny boy. If RG III is injured again and ends his career because the Skins couldn't afford on o-line, then you've just deprived the entire league of years of thrills and entertainment. Doesn't cost Danny a cent more than he's already paying. Most of all, though, Goodell is punishing the fans in DC. Why? I have no idea. Ask him.

I don't mind the commentary, I mind the juvenile name calling and the vitriol of Milbury's words. Act like an adult, not a buffoon.
Posted Friday February 08, 2013, About: Caps GM won't 'blow anything up'
Problem is - it's the GM that needs to be blowed up.
Posted Friday November 16, 2012, About: Daly: Maybe they should get a reality check
Every time I see Daly and read what he's saying, I just imagine him being just the worst kind of bully. I mean the kind that we're trying to get rid of in our schools. I would make his resignation (and Betteman's as well) a condition of any deal signed.

When I see Daly and read his comments, I just hear a bully. I think he's worse than Betteman at this point. If I were a player, I make his resignation a condition of any deal signed. Betteman too.
Posted Tuesday September 18, 2012, About: Replacement players?
No one is going to watch replacement players. That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard. This isn't football. This is the 4th most popular sport in the U.S. My team would have to pay me 100 bucks a game to get me to go to one of those games.

It seems very possible that the owners have just destroyed their league. The players don't seem like they're going to relent and many of them are finding it easy to "go home" and play. Why would they come back? If Ovechkin, for instance, is making 5 mil a season in the KHL (as opposed to 9 mil in the states) and has lost two of his prime years to lockouts, why would he come back? He's still making bank, and he prefers Russia to the U.S. anyway. He's probably never going to be the player he once was anyway, so why take the heat in the U.S. when he can have it easy in his homeland and still make great $? I think the owners believe they have more leverage than they actually do.
