You think the writer could get away with this if he wrote about any other franchise in the league? I understand the point of the article but he definitely could have done a better job of getting his point across.
Well..the franchise is the joke of the league. Yet Columbus fans endure it when other fans wouldn't. I guess that could be interpreted as us being called ignorant. Yeah, it might not be well written... but it's an internet blog...which probably a half step above reading someone's random diary thoughts.

Thats my take as well. Add that to our shortlist of things we agree on triple-B. I don't take any slight at all from the article. You have to laugh sometimes at your misfortunes.

Just looked at the standings. It took us less than 7 days to get back into last place in the division after taking 3 out of 4 points in the 1st 3 days of the season. We are also 5 points out of 1st place already.

And if I remember correctly we're solidly in 12th already with only Calgary a threat to eke us out for 16th. LA, unfortunately, will get its stuff together and I'm pretty sure Phoenix will too.

Good luck to both! Kenny H and the Blues will be a test. Should be a real grind-fest and hopefully JAM can break loose once or twice and be the difference in the game.

Portly is busy tweeting anecdotes about his conversations with mrs. porty about the Cbj ice girls.

Super creepy, and very unreporter-like.

At this point he's not really worth a follow. 80% of the time he is the second or third to tweet breaking news. I have also noticed that instead of just retweeting people he slightly changes their tweet and tweets it as his own a lot more this season then he did last season.

Agreed. So far, Mitchell seems ok.
