Game 5 v. Detroit PGT - "Roenick the Iconoclast" Edition
 
Other thread hit 1000. Continue.

Nice thread title.

Why am I not surprised that a certain Marleau fanboy is still defending the rotten apple? (Not the op in this thread mind you...)

Ducks fan coming in peace to drop the homer hatred and to lend support. Just drop these Detroit clowns and then beat the Ginger twins please. I'm part of a small percentage of fans that would PREFER to bring the cup back to California for a while. (As long as LA doesn't win it). But seriously... No reason to lose this series. Get it done!

Well, I wouldn't go as far as calling him a rotten apple ... I'm in agreement with some that he has to be injured. He doesn't necessarily have the history just disappearing in the playoffs ...

You also conveniently ignore that there were two other forwards on the ice. One peeled ahead in Rissmiller in an offensive manner and the other was Guerin who was also caught on the wrong side of the puck. But no, your entire focus and blame has been directed to Marleau.

Scapegoating at its finest.

It's almost as if you don't understand the dynamic of team play. I chalk it up to Marleau fanboyism, but it's starting to look like you don't understand the game at all.

You see, in a team game, players count on other team members to play according to a game plan. Part of that game plan is to count on their team mates not to make a stupid play. With that little of time left in the game the teammates expect the exceptional player to make the safe play and bounce the puck up the boards. Instead, brain dead, I've got to make the big play Marleau, decides I'm gonna be the HERO!

He ****ed up. It's time to accept it.

Chairman Mallard 05-09-2011 12:50 AM

Toews looks so sad in that avatar.

I hate that he knew this would happen, and never thought to tell us.

Franchise13 05-09-2011 12:51 AM

Ok, home and calmed down a bit... I think I have a bit of a clearer head now that the frustration is subsiding.

First off, I saw JR's comments. JR is not wrong, we all felt that way, I know everyone I was at that game with felt the same way. He was right. However, he should not have said what he said in the manner in which he said it. It crosses a line, it ultimately may cost him in the future. However, the person calling out Patty should've been a teammate or a coach, and behind closed doors... not an ex teammate who has a penchance saying the outlandish trying to make a transition into another career. Know why players give interviewers/media cliches? It's because they are trained that way. No one truly knows what's said in locker rooms, it's quite disrespectful to air dirty laundry. If fans know something about how someone is playing, I'm willing to bet the players already know.

Fans are calling for his head, which is understandable, his effort, not even his performance was disheartening and deflating. If that was my son or a teammate of mine or what have you, I'd have felt the same way: let down. If I had a teammate dog it like that, my hand would've been on his facemask by halftime. JT (...or Boyle, Clowe, whomever) needs to get his boy in check here, but do so in a way that doesn't throw him under the bus publicly.

People calling for him to be traded? I hope they are only venting frustration, because it has a 1% chance of happening. That 1%? If Marleau asks for one.

People calling him to be sat...? For who? Like it or not, Marleau is too talented to sit. You'd be cutting your nose to spite your face. Wanna sit your mentally fragile star who's pouted once before? See where that takes you, it'd cause more problems (everywhere not just on the ice) than it's worth. For better or worse, Marleau will play, maybe he should have a reduction in time, but he will play.

Knee jerk reactions never work. Ever.

Keep in mind, I am not defending Marleau in way for his effort tonight. It was awful. Just a bit of perspective from my end.

I know it's hard for fans at times. But try and remain supportive of this team and it's players. I've seen players be booed at home at the sign of one mistake, and why? To what end? To make that player press even more? To force him in a situation to not care? It's an impossible position to be in. True fans of a team, who wish success for the team, should not put players in that position. It's ok to be critical, but try to be supportive as well, that's ultimately what fans are right? I'm not saying HP Pavilion will be hostile towards Marleau for a potential Game 7, or that it has been, but I've seen this happen before.

Despite the world seemingly falling on the Sharks... they still only have to win one game. -ONE- Though they had 2 chances to win one already, it's still in their favor.

EDIT: Reposted, didn't realize the old thread was already @ 1k. Apologies. Feel free to delete the old one.

Derick* 05-09-2011 12:52 AM

A lot of jokes/sarcasm/other non-literal things go over my head all the time so even though I still don't get it I'm sure it's my fault, not yours.

Thwarter 05-09-2011 12:52 AM

Marleau should have to wear this jersey in tomorrow's practice.
http://cn1.kaboodle.com/hi/img/b/0/0...AAAAAN02-Q.jpg

That said, Sharks still have a 3-2 lead and can close it out in Detroit. If they are going to live up to the 'something's different about this year's' Sharks, they'll need to learn that they can't sit on a two goal lead and expect things to be OK.

And for the love of Dog... Niemi is a pretty decent goaltender. Too bad the Sharks D and forwards think they need to collapse on him and play his position for him. Wallin pretty much stepped on Niemi trying to stop pucks, and Seto... geez... instead of still skating towards Datsyuk behind the net and eliminating him, decides to SIT ON THE POST next to Niemi and provide the bank shot for Detroit to score.

Marleau took the cake though... had a chance to level the puck carrier but DODGES OUT OF THE WAY, then gets beat from behind on the wall, then wussyfoots a backcheck on Datsyuk which just spins Dats around and makes the gamewinning pass.

Zero points for Pattycakes, zero heart. I haven't seen him use his speed the whole series. He's playing once again like someone poisoned his dog or something. Pathetic. :banghead:

This is what Randy Hahn had to say:

RT @sharkvoice: Jeremy Roenick only cares about furthering his broadcasting career. His Marleau take was WAY over the line. Many bridges were burned.

ChubbChubby 05-09-2011 12:56 AM

I agree that Roenick took it too far. Those types of comments probably cost him his job right there. He has a right to his opinion, but he also has to know that he has a responsibility as a TV crew member not to spew hate like he did. Learn2selfcontrol.

rideaucrusher21 05-09-2011 12:57 AM

marleau sucks. if he continues to play as he did tonight he will continue costing the sharks.

but like some have said, hes here and hes here for good. he played awful tonight. we can only hope he turns it around.

man... you know you're in trouble when a ducks fan has to give you a pat on the back.

Ricelund 05-09-2011 12:57 AM

Question for you guys, hasn't Roenick called Marleau out in the past? I seem to remember him making some over the top comments about Marleau before this.

Nighthock 05-09-2011 12:58 AM

How can you hate this face?!

He did last year, but not to this extent. Also he never had a permanent TV gig last year so the comments sort of fell under the radar.
