I'm sorry, you aren't by chance referring to the last two WJCs, are you?

My "can't skate" comment wasn't about this year's Team Canada. Didn't realize it would be taken this way.

No, no, no, you're doing it all wrong. You wait for the opposition to hit you then go down like you were shot. Either sit motionless as if you were dead, or roll around like you just got riddled by a machine gun. Don't forget to hurry back to the bench once you draw a penalty so you can get back out on the powerplay.

Again, I'm not defending diving (and Canadians DO DIVE, sorry to break it to ya). I just think it's far less criminal than injuring the opponent.

You seem like a student of the game. Perhaps you might go back in history and check out the medal records from 1982 on. That is the year that Canada started sending a national team to the WJC. Check out the penalty records as well. Check out the 1987 "punch up in Piestany" all Canada's fault of course.

And while you're at it check out Andrei Mironov if you would like to see a few samples of a dirty player. They come in all jerseys.

Listen Sentinel, I'm calling a truce. I know what you are trying to say and to a point I agree with you. There is a line that you can cross in any sport.

Enjoy the rest of the games. I do hope we see no more injuries caused by any plays.

Fair enough. A handshake and a truce.

For the record, I've been watching hockey since 1984. So I have seen it all. And of course they come in all jerseys. Czechs hit, Russians slash, Canadians dive, and Americans play classy.

I think you should take a look at the stats on that one.. almost all soccer teams lose money. The owners see it as a hobby, not as a business.

It's the best game in the world. That's why we can get so heated and passionate about it.

And yes I agree Americans are classy.

And you think this is because of how unaggressive soccer is? Or could it have a little more to do with world wide exposure, based on both climate availability and wealth availability (ie: you can't exactly walk to an outdoor rink in Brazil, and even if you could, 99% of them couldn't afford the equipment to play). Hockey has basically ever element of soccer (with the exception of being allowed to kick the puck in the net), but then you add the players move faster, have sticks to deke with the puck at a greater ability than soccer players can with their feet, shoot harder, plus hit and fight. If the world grew up with the experience and knowledge of hockey I don't see why it wouldn't trump soccer.

The popularity of soccer versus hockey comes down to essentially what is necessary to play.



or



Not as the poster above me said, due to a lack of physicality.

It actually probably had more to do with complexity and or lack thereof.

Simple games are easy for people to understand and watch and play. People dont like watching games they dont understand.

Probably why football/soccer attracts so many hooligans when compared to rugby. Not much thought is invovled watching the game.


Of course to play you need a lot less to play soccer. Heck you dont even need to have arms.

Might as well add paying the officials and spiking your opponents gatorade. You need to work on your vision and you'll see differences much better.

The only reason so many people are upset with the way Canada plays hockey is because they are sick and tired of watching them win so many championships on so many different levels. I totally understand, there have been a few nhl teams i just hated for the same reason.

oh man, your point - I can be so mean, but I'll show some respect to Canada, as their international results in the last few years don't really do them justice

Canucks fan talking here, eh!?!

Diving/embellishment at the level they're at still (not the NHL, not being paid millions) is just absurd. It's absurd in the NHL, but at least there they have the playoffs and big contracts.

I don't think it's fair to judge any country's success in sports over a few years. It wasn't that long ago canada went 7 years without gold at the juniors and then bounced back for 5 straight. There are several top notch hockey nations out there and in a 1 game elimination it's pretty much up for grabs

Are you trying to imply Horton embellished that hit?! Otherwise I am completely lost. Why would Horton take himself out of the playoffs just so some scrub #7 defenseman would be suspended for the Finals?!

Cmon, the guy showed up at the next game. With all the noise and lights I think we all know Dr Recchi would have forced him to stay home if he was actually hurt.
