Maybe the better way to get what you want would be to tell those other folks how much you appreciate what they do rather than whinning on the ones who just get the discussion going.

The gameday thread has, for years, been more than a place to discuss the game. It has also been a place where information about the game has traditionally been posted as the first post, to inform others about the days game. Your posts offer none of that, and thus are a complete waste of time, outside of increasing your post count.

And for the record, I do offer thanks to those who put up useful information. And if you check, I also nearly always comment on crappy initial GDT posts as well, not just yours.

The person that started this thread has my full support.

Thanks for starting a thread so we could discuss the game.... and so that Mordac could complain about the lack of info.

By the way, when is the last time you did one of the really great gameday threads?

Last season. It was on the old board. Had a few compliments on it, too, as it actually included useful information.

Wow, it's already elbows up in the gameday thread and the puck doesn't drop for another 6 and half hours, good stuff!

Hopefully the boys are just as ready tonight...

So as long as the team sucks, so will the game day threads?

Seriously, why bother? If you're not going to provide useful information, don't bother. Is your post count really that important to you?

This is the same crap you pulled last year.  Get off your high horse.  This has nothing to do with post count and everything to do with having a place to discuss the game. 

Your qualms with the gameday threads, now and in the past, fall under childish complaining. 

And stop applying your logic to gameday threads to everything.  I don't come to this thread for leafs game day info, most people follow twitter or anywhere on the internet.

As I said to Fanatic, the post has traditionally contained useful information. I have complained in the past, and will continue to do so, should the initial post in the thread contain no useful information regarding the game. Unless it is a placeholder post, it's a waste.

So no one can discuss the game until someone does it good enough for you? Good luck with that.

Don't be obtuse. You're smarter than this.

Best ever use of the word obtuse was in Shawshank Redemption. Thanks for making me think of that great movie.

I like this gameday thread/opening post, seems appropriate.

I also have kept up to date with media updates so I know who is injured. Also, I dont believe there are set lines yet. Any other marginal information I want to know I'd look up on nhl or yahoosports or something.

But this is coming from a guy with few standards ;)

My prediction: Nas 4 Leafs 1

Do you find any part of this ironic?  I mean the first thing you so callously quipped was "does your post count mean that much?"  And now here you are, making the same post in multiple threads, an issue everyone is aware you have, and no one cares.

Quit complaining and quit being a hypocrite.

I for one, never really read the opening post in a GDT.

Following Seigel on twitter gets me all the line-up information I need sent to my phone.
