Red Wings Getting Mugged

Call me when you wake up, NHL.

There used to be a time (and these viewers aren’t going anywhere if you go get them) when the NHL was one of the “Big 4.”

The problem is Gary Bettman. The NHL stopped broadcasting games on major networks, failing to invest like the NBA, NFL, and MLB.

Furthermore, as notably illustrated by the Red Wings, you let thugs rule the ice. It’s not like back in the day where these snarfs were men enough to police themselves. They’re just stupid goons now, and they fuck up everyone talented until they win.

Sidney Crosby gets the shit kicked out of him every time he plays. Franzen scores three goals so they fight him and get him ejected, only after removing his helmet – fresh off his concussion.

If the refs don’t police the game, it turns ugly. You see college basketball coaches fighting for it all the time because the refs are so inconsistent. Sometimes, they seem asleep, and you literally watch your players get beat up.

UNLESS YOU DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, NHL, NO ONE EXCEPT HICKS WILL WATCH TEAMS LIKE CHICAGO WIN THE STANLEY CUP. IS IT A GAME OR ROLLERBALL?

WAKE UP.

Watching some amazing Gs wearing the winged-wheel get pushed around by constant clutching, grabbing, cheap-shotting, illegal hitting, and general dirtiness AGAIN was fucked. They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. [...]

  • Lacking Focus to Finish in Detroit The Tigers: maybe the best team in Detroit history has YET to win a ring.

  • Good Work, Red Wings & Pistons While I was at my mom’s I couldn’t witness the Pistons ball out against the Raptors. Boy, did they hound them and attack the rim en route to another victory.

  • Red Wings Claim Winter Classic Albeit, the cotton-winter classic, what with the fake cotton snow blowing all over the ice in Denver! Nonethless, the resilient Red Wings beat their old rivals 5-3 in Colorado.

    ……when everyone is pickin’ up their chicklets off the Ice……… its time for a change……good luck talking youth hockey players into the dentist office…the boat to Hicksville leaves with stops in Broken Tooth and Brainsample.

We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.)
