I meant the fact that he's out of touch, an attention ***** and no one should take him seriously.

Yesterday I got blocked by tony and attacked by two of his mouthbreather followers for calling him a buffoon. Jokes on then, I don't even follow him!

Who would ever take a sports media personality seriously though?

Don is there between periods to yell about some play and praise some kid from Kamloops. I love it and especially if he spends a moment reminding us that hockey isn't everything and that we have young men and women at risk promoting Canadian interests. It's not political, it's just patriotic and as the son of immigrants I appreciate it so much.

Tony shills pasta sauce on rafio.

Not the same

Not only do i get all my hockey info at HFboards, but i get MUCH more quality analysis and opinions here then on any media website. Mix in a few stats-oriented websites and you are set.

I mean, just over the lock-out, anyone who was following the colberg thread got info on that prospect you wouldn't imagine traditional media ever bringing in that type of information.

I see no reason whatsoever why people insist on using traditional media.

Yep. I get all my news from either HF or from the SMS that TSN sends me with breaking news.

Lavoie and John Lu are the only ones I pay any real attention to because they tweet only facts.

The rest can take their buffoonery and shove it!

La Premiere Trio on TVA sports is probably the only good source of hockey information in the media. Jacques Martin is actually on that show. He might not be liked, might not be the best coach we've had, but he's still a very smart hockey man.

I liken the French Media (namely RDS) to Fox News...they know their audience will eat up the crap they spew. I have said that the media negatively affects the team. Something has to change. There's no journalistic integrity.

During Subban’s contract negotiations, we were going at a rate of one thread (1000 freakin’ posts!) per day; the sports media are just a reflection of our... craziness. Also, to be fair, I noticed a lot of “false” reports (example: “ah ah rds is bashing Subban again!” while they were just saying that PK should not be in the lineup before Saturday) posted in here. I don’t think the posters are doing it on purpose but the bias towards the Montreal media is so strong that, sometimes, it does result in tainted interpretations.

Just to be clear: sports media from all over the world are not perfect; far from it. However for each clowns you name me, I can name you 3 good and level headed analysts. It’s a personal decision: just stop watching the clowns. Or, if you prefer, stop reporting everything they say and write.

I laughed pretty hard

Did you ever tweet to Marinaro that Darche sucked? If so, I may have solved that mystery.

The majority of Montreal media are rumour mongers
The ones that are knowledgeable are labelled as vanilla

They're all elbowing for their slice of notoriety and fans

For those wondering how these guys have shows, other people who have/had shows with a large following:

- Bill Oreilly
- Glen Beck
- Alex Jones
- Maury et al.

You get the point.

I also would fully be behind a day when Montreal takes back the media. It wouldn't be hard for us to organize calling in to tell Tony and him chums off.

Plekanec signing is the worst? I am officially enraged. And I didn't even listen to the actual comment by Marinaro.

I heard this too. Summary for those who missed it:

1. The Bruins are bullies and their fans can't deny it. Most of the time they get the last laugh.

2.Horton is not in the same business as him so they can't fight but Edwards is.

3. Challenges Edwards to a fight for charity, guarantees a win even if he's out of shape.



Lol

Lol
Reminds me of when Don Brennan, lauded Ottawa Sun Senators reporter, was calling out Pens-era Georges Laraque.
