What's the point of this? If someone believes a rumour that turns out to be baseless, how does it affect me or anyone? If someone wants to come to HF and talk about a rumour they heard, whether true or not, how does it affect anyone? It doesn't. Who cares?

This place is for talking hockey and to waste time. This post has only accomplished the latter.

uh yeah it was such a complete waste.

At least it's giving a heads up of who's legit and who is not.

I thought it wasn't bad at all.

So, do you mean to suggest that there is a seperation between rumour and fact? Glad it's Friday night, I have research to do and letters to write...

For clarity, we all still agree that Braydon Schenn will be traded to the Leafs for Clarke MacArthur and/or futures?

Saying thefourthperiod writes made-up garbage is like saying Spector does the same. These people only report what is printed in serious newspapers by (mostly) serious journalists.

They're miles away from the usual suspects.

Great first post. Hockey Suit, you've single-handedly driven the average IQ of posters here up at least 10 or 20 points. Predictable sniffy responses from some.

Keep it up.

it would have been much quicker to just define the word RUMOR.

rumor: a story or statement in general circulation without confirmation or certainty as to facts.

"Man the music industry is such bull. Every record exec is a complete fool that's completely out of touch with what the REAL music fans are into. That's why my post-punk-alt indie band is so anti-establishment. We even wrote a song about how messed up it all is. But yeah you should definitely check out our next show so we can get real huge and become rock stars...er, I mean respected musicians."

Don't mean to hate just pointing out the hypocrisy. If I had a blog I'd probably be doing the same thing.

I see what you sre getting at, but is it wrong for people to read a rumour and use it as topic of discussion?

Just because people get excited over a rumour and hope that it will happen, does not mean they are idiots and believe everything. So altough you make a valid point, just let people talk about what they want however credible the person is.
