Here is the fundamental problem.
You made this assertion.
But have yet to explain what the hell you mean by that. As in what personal relationship got in the way?
You can't get all pissy when posters went further explaination of a statement like that.
I was going to say something sarcastic or cute or whatever but I had no idea how to say it to you so I'll just be straight and honest.
I know he was not on my side. I found the fact that he felt the need to belittle my debating skills (despite not even having witnessed them) to be insulting. I chose to not even fully reply to him. Thus I chose a semi-sarcastic reply rather than spend energy on a meaningless reply to a meaningless semi-hidden insult. Does this clear things up for you a bit better?
Nobody asked me for an explanation. I received an "lolwut" and a demand for links (which does not validate any argument either way). Then a condescending remark when I told him I had no links, just a gut feeling along with watching these guys for several years. I would be glad to debate and talk about what's going on in an intelligent matter, however I do not tolerate nonsense and demand a higher standard of debate than people saying "lolwut" to me after I type something up that took me a little while to write. I would say that is far from being "pissy".
The personal relationships I feel affected Vanek were with the coaching staff. I feel he is weak mentally because all it will take is one event that will make him doubt himself. Of the 3 skaters I picked, Vanek is the one I may be most wrong about, since he has proven in the past that he is willing to work harder than what is just good enough. I believe Roy and Stafford especially are passive types that you cannot win a cup with if they are leading your team.
