Heck, posters on this very forum gets pissed off if someone criticises them. I don't recall Comrie saying anything dissing the Oilers or Edmonton.
And its not a case where MC is reneging on his contract, he's just doesn't agree with the offer from KLowe. He's not the first Oiler to do it. Billy Guerin did it, Doug Weight did it,
heck Kevin Lowe did it
. I think a lot of people (i.e. Robin Brownlee and other media) are just reading into things just because we are a hockey-mad town and can't keep our imaginations down and mouths shut. I hope MC DOES sign and stays here just to prove Brownlee wrong. I thought today's article was very inappropriate and premature.
If he's going to be driven out of town by us, the fans, at least wait until he disses Edmonton or plays like crap on the ice first.
Kevin Lowe did what?!? He paid more dues than any other Oiler, taking much less money than he was worth, FOR OVER A DECADE,
FOR THE GOOD OF THE TEAM
. (not yelling, just emphasizing by importance)
By casually comparing him to any other Oiler holdout you are damaging your perceived ability to contribute "informed" opinions.
Oh, and regarding what Comrie has or hasn't said; actions speak louder than words.
