Claude Julien's crying is embarassing and needs to stop. Nothing from last game warranted such tears. You should be fined for accusing the other team of diving when you have Marchand in your lineup.

Every team does it from time to time, and you've got to be mentally challenged or simply irrational to think that a team benefits from it more than any other. You'll still have some conspiracy theorists coming in here telling us how some teams benefit from embellishment and how 9/11 was Bush's plan. Reading some of the Bruins fans on their board really feels like they're living in an idiocracy.

Thanks for being sensible and having an awesome avatar.

It must be hard to be a Boston fan and not get swallowed into that insanity the media are selling them. Level headed sain Boston fans get all my respect.

I don't doubt that. That wasn't a shot at Wisconsin, just Felger

.......although you people DID inflict him upon us, so you're not completely off the hook

Felger sounded like a whiney baby. Every time Milbury explained his reasoning Felger would look away from the camera or just ignore what he was saying. You can tell when someone's listening and when someone's waiting for their turn to talk and he definitely falls into the latter category.

Mike Milbury mentioned that Felger was crying in his beer after a loss; the same thing can be said of Julien.

Subban embellished?! He got back up instantly after the hit from behind!

Julien is always crying after a loss; I remember him pouting, with watery eyes, when Laraque tried to fight Lucic. Julien was mad because Lucic was a young player... but months before, when Chara jumped on 19 years old Latendresse... it was the right thing to do!

That’s Julien; that’s the Bruins.

I used to fall into it some, when I was younger. Making blanket statements and assumptions about players I didn't know and fans I would never meet. Then I reached the age of reason

Now I step back and look at the way people react to this stuff and it's just crazy. The thread at the top of the Bruins thread, especially the first page is filled with such misguided, inflammatory drivel. As is the "CH stands for character" thread in this forum. The first couple pages anyway

Makes sense that it's worst at the beginning, when the game is more fresh in peoples minds or more importantly their emotions are still running high. But man, you would think this was a battle between good and evil

Even right now, both subforums and even this very thread there is and will be more people saying things like, "that guy in the middle is a typical Boston fan." It's disappointing to see people take that attitude, because it's flat out wrong

There aren't too many. Granted, habs fans aren't immune to media ******** either.

It's just ridiculous at this point. Bruins never dive, bruins play the game the right way, etc... WOW

You see see a video about subban diving on youtube but you can also find one on seguin, marchand, thornton. I mean, I listed 3 names but its not a 1:3 ratio, im just saying, they do it too.

Then there's how we're soft and whiny. Gallagher and Desharnais are smallest guys on the ice and play as big as Chara.

As milbury surprisingly said, how was montreal soft when they crashed the net for shots and goals? Often Gallagher and DD doing dirty work.

Most of what he says is met with facepalms from the normal fans around here
I imagine he's a little bit like our Jack Todd...most fans from Montrealers will know what I mean.

Jack Todd is wildly entertaining even if he's a massive fool.

Like I said, I don't think we have a Felger equivalent...unless you want to count Le Baron or Rejean Tremblay, if the latter did TV.

Tony is a special kind of loony, but he's more often anti-Habs than not.

I am curious about this regional bias thing. I know that on the occasion when I have watched baseball on NESN they are so incredibly biased for the home team it makes it almost unwatchable. Seems like the chosen method of that market.

Granted, we won't find mirror images but the RDS crew bashes habs every now and then too.

Felger likes to troll, so does Tony. That's how I see it.

Funny how the most sensible writing about the game from the Bruins side was produced by a blog:

http://www.stanleycupofchowder.com/2...fference-maker

Kudos to this site, and I'd buy the author a beer at a game anytime.

With many acknowledging he's a troll. That thread was also closed.

Now, when are you calling out your media? Oh...didn't think so.

I think Milbury is incredibly retrograde and frequently wrong. But he is pretty consistently against whining, which is what the Julien comments and Boston media reaction was about. Excuses for why the lost a close game at home against the other team's backup goalie.

The Red Sox coverage is EASILY the worst. Because they owners of the team own NESN as well. The way they glaze over or completely ignore anything negative is embarrassing

Bruins? Eh, other than Jack Edwards, I think it's pretty run of the mill

Honestly, at least he's consistent. I don't like him but seeing stuff like:

"Moen refuses to fight when habs are up 2-1, *****"

then

"Mcquaid did't fight for the team when they were up 3-2, kept his emotions in check, team player"

is an example of switching your stance. We do it too obviously. I'm just pointing out an example that's easier to relate to.

If habs whine, they didn't show it. Chara jumped Emelin and instead of habs cashing it in in supposed fear they crashed the net, they scored 2 goals and won the game.

At the end however, Julien decided to blow off some steam and vent. At the end of the day, yes Emelin's crosscheck was controversial but Julien made it out to be an excuse for Chara having to do what he did. Nope. Julien just wants bruins to get away with it next time so they can control the game and play their way.

He's a moron, catering to other morons. Which is precisely what Felger is doing. Don't let the loud minority fool you. The majority disagrees with him, but the majority, as always, is the much more silent end of the spectrum
I appreciate and respect what you're are saying, I just think the words majority and minority should be swapped in this context.
