Bad satire, or bad news. It doesnt matter, its just bad writing. The Province is still weak.

So much hate towards the article! We all know there is a little bit of Darren McDonald aka Bieksux in all of us. It sounds like half the garbage posted about Bieksa on these boards. Im not a fan of him but people like to get carried away... so fast to point the finger when I think we are all a little to blame here...

P.S. Trade Bieksa for some pucks!!!

Yes, it must really sting to be trashed by username.

I appreciate this kind of thing is subjective, but I think the Kurtenbloggers are generally pretty funny. Often, I think they provide more insight than some of the "serious journalists" on offer in Vancouver.

Some people seem to find them funny, while others don't.
Perhaps this is simply a case where... one's mileage may vary

Well written, funny satire piece, people are only hating on it in this thread because it's too much like looking into a mirror

Not really.

The problem is, that like most other pieces published by The Province, it is poorly written. The article, while attempting to be satirical misses the mark entirely. To write a funny satirical article it has to be overtly bizarre and absurd. Meanwhile this article is nothing more than a poor narrative of a seemingly true, while slightly exaggerated plot.

I agree. Having said that, I can understand why some don't get it, or don't appreciate their brand of humour.

I'd also like to add that saying they have no knowledge of hockey or sports in general is just plain wrong. Their level of knowledge(in many sports, not just hockey) is a level above that of most writers in this market.

I don't really know; it's been years since I've read it.
What's a newspaper?
