The Dead Kennedy's endorse this thread

Now it is 1984
Knock-knock at your front door
It's the suede/denim secret police
They have come for your uncool niece

Someone should write a parody song with Brouwer in place of Jerry Brown.

Team Semin = Is lookin' like 2 in the bank

Team Grinder Uber Alles = 0 in the bank last eve

1984 = hmmmm, fun times

Semin bank account > Brouwer bank account

The season is that bad that Caps' fans can only continue to take out frustration on Semin - almost like they wish he was still a Cap.

If his fans would let it go...we could all just pretend he never was a Cap and never speak of him again.

Who's a fan?

Me? Others? So What!

Maybe non-fans, ex-teammates (Brouwer, Bradley, etc.) need to let IT go. C'mon. Brouwer doesn't speak - no Grinder Uber Alles thread?

95% of Caps fans have moved on and don't even think of him anymore....

I don't think that poster is totally out to lunch whether it's Gandler, Walsh, a poster or the Easter bunny.

At one time players were booed at their home arenas if they were disliked for whatever reason and it ended there. In this day and age - perceived reputations can spread like wild fire across the internet.

And I don't find it totally out to lunch that fans follow players that mirror their own personalities (user names) even if it's subconsciously. There's definitely a style of player that entertains me more than another. As a whole I surely appreciate the team sport. Heck I quit following hockey for a period of time because of all the goons and fighting. Today's goons don't bother me because it's more controlled.

But whatever - it's about the guy that wore red who is still wearing red. LOL When Semin leaves Carolina and all the Brouwer like comments come out of their lockerroom I'm willing to revisit the notion he was a cancer. But really not until then especially with this dysfunctional team.

What's particularly scary to me though is that players end up feeling like a Rick DiPietro. I'll get my digs in on a player but hate is a feeling that never enters my mind when speaking of a professional athlete. There are definitely worse things in this world to hate.

End of rant.
Don't actually care about any of this.

Silly canes, constantly talking about him using his size and strength to fight for the puck.

Someone forward them this thread stapled to Dear Leader's comments.

You guys remember how much of a man-crush on Semin I had?
Still watch him (as I do as many games as I can of other teams), and hope for the best since I like him as a player, but he's not coming back here, never will, he's not "one of us" anymore. It was obviously time to move on (for both parties), and turn the page. Altough, wish his skill would have been replaced by someone who can at least make simple breakouts, catch easy passes, and hit open nets. Hello LOLski.

I agree that everyone should just let it go. Those that didn't/don't like Semin will always feel that way. Those that like him will as well. One last thing I will say about Alex Semin is that through it all he has always remained a class act in regards to his naysayers. Can't say the same about those that chose to trash him and still do. Only thing that may be interesting however, is an unbiased poll about those that like him and those that don't. I believe that those that like him, understand what took place and overwhelmingly outnumber those that dislike him. Caps fans should be concentrating on what IS now rather than worrying about Alex Semin. He is gone and should have been gone at least two years ago (I bet both his admirers and haters agree about that). Alexander Ovechkin should be seriously thinking about his career as well. Would have loved to be a fly on the wall listening to what was said during their dinner together.

Tongue in cheek, kinda.

The sentiment of the song is no longer valid, since the country is no longer in the throes of civil war.

Hence someone attempting to use the sentiment in a derogatory manner makes little sense.

Well I interpreted the hypothetical holiday to be taken in a hypothetical version of the place based on the song, but yeah.

Backstrom to Ovie and Ribeiro to Semin, would there be a better 1-2 punch at C-RW?

Semin is a superb player, but at this point, he's gone. Can we just get another scoring winger?
