Can you source that for me please?

Also, be aware that Iím sitting of plenty of research that suggests quite the opposite.

Sorry if this post is too aggressive.

Personally, I think WIGWAL's immediate response to sickbeast was way more overblown and over the line and I'm a little surprised that he is going completely unscathed here. Unfortunately, sickbeast, doubling down on your comments and complaining about every poster since the Diefenbaker administration isn't exactly helping your cause. You called a poster with under 200 posts a clique-member and then lamented that high post count members were driving away low post count members like you. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Andy, I admitted being over the top and tried to hold my hands up to that in subsequent posts.

I have no justifiable reason, but Nik has the right idea in terms of my personal situation.

As others have mentioned, we have all had sometimes vicious disagreements, but thatís sometimes part of having different view points. We are all adult enough to move on and understand that this is sometimes how discussion go.

There is one person in this thread who is waxing lyrical about all that is wrong here and none of it appears to be their fault, perhaps itís why they are just so successful in their professional and personal life.

I wonder if Dubas might dip into the Sooís front office and hire someone alongside another more experienced guy like Ron Francis.

My apologies. To clarify I should point out that generally speaking there by "we" I was mainly referring to Canada and Canadians where our relationship with the monarchy is pretty limited and actually sort of provides the country with something I sort of like(an appointed head of state who's usually pretty agreeable as opposed to whatever sort of populist dope might get elected to the job).

Were I someone whose tax dollars were really at stake I'd be Robespierre-ing it right up beside you on that one.

Thatís fair and understandable.

Perhaps growing up in Scotland colored my world view, but no we donít all kind of like the queen or the throne she sits on and what it stands for.

Itís a complete joke in modern society and the fact that taxpayers still pay hand over fist for her and her family and their properties and their tax exemptions turns my stomach.

The people she presides over burn in flammable tower blocks with pantries sparsely stocked by whatever the local food bank can spare and that wicked old witch sits on her throne in her castles.

The whole thing is joke and should be either abolished with the assets being redistributed or completely privatized and taxed accordingly.

I can't help but wonder if Lou taking another job so quickly isn't maybe a sign that the transition here maybe wasn't as smooth as we'd like to think and if there maybe wasn't a bit more of a push out the door than the "orderly 3 year plan" might indicate. It seems like he certainly thinks he's still capable of running a team and you can't help but think he'd have wanted to see things through here.

Thatís a fair point I think. 

Shanahan might have seen it as sticking to the plan, but Lou clearly still has the bug for the big job.

I donít want to get drawn into a back and forth on this, but is the guy who called someone senile really playing the victim card here?

Dude, my reaction might have been over the top, but why arenít you holding your hands up and admitting fault here? Is being right on the internet that important to you?

Never mind the fact your comments about Lou were in extremely bad taste, did it cross your mind that many of the posters here probably have older family members dealing with diminished mental faculties?

Your comment was uncalled for and insensitive and your subsequent attempt to play it off as tongue in cheek while you break out your victim schtick is pretty poor form.

Honestly, if you donít like the place, you know where the door is.

Meh.  Lou did some good things and some not so good things in Toronto.  His deadline moves this season were questionable. It's only a matter of time before he goes senile if he has not done so already.  We are in good hands with Kyle Dubas.  And perhaps he will do even better unconstrained.

Youíre a total dick.

Why speak about the man like that?

Iím not a huge fan, but senile, really?

Iíd hazard heís shed more IQ points over his lifetime than youíve ever owned.

Sincerely, go Frig yourself.

Casey fired.


I'm trying to remember which press conference someone asked Babcock (or a Leaf) a really poop emoji question, and it turned out to be the ol' Soup Ken.

The reporter talking about Cherry was Ken Campbell.
