The problem is the people who listen to everything the media says and just accepts what they say as fact.

The same strategy is effective there too. Although, if it is a person I like or care about then I might take the time to play an informative role.

Facebook and Twitter is really the only media these days. I got most my info on the boston marathon bombers from right here on hf, the news media is way behind these days.

Olver hasn't even been playing recently and probably won't tonight either. You people need to let it go, that's way in the past and it's not even worth responding too now. He's a scrub player anyways, just play the game and get points.

I already posted that he won't be playing, but thanks anyway. And in sports, the past doesn't matter. If you wrong someone on a hockey rink, they won't ever forget it. Whether its tonight or in the future, someone on the blues will be going after him, Hitch practically said it after the hit.

Well, yes, one option is to cynically tune everything out because reliable information is harder to find.

But short of that abdicatory shrug & give up option (sometimes attitudinally accompanied by a contempt for anyone who doesn't also abdicate), yeah, if it's any narrative I'm interested in and the mistakes are like nails on a chalkboard to me, I'll probably get involved and comment on it.

For me this is a superior option to just ignoring everything. I understand why others do prefer to ignore everything (which in all honesty is the option most everyday people choose), I just prefer for myself to stay engaged. A lot of different subjects are anywhere from interests to passions for me and I believe when you stop having those things in your life you start to get old and die. That doesn't mean passions can't be private, just that mine aren't. Culture, entertainment, current events and politics all interest me and those are public things. The consequences for me would be more than just ignoring information sources, they'd mean detaching from my interests/passions and starting to get old fast.

k I'm glad you are here to inform us of what is going on in the minds of every Blues player on the roster.

I'm just SO sure the Blues will be going after Olver next season just like they did with Joe Thornton.

Keep dreaming bud, the Blues have better things to worry about than a 4th-line player on one of the worst teams in the NHL. You need to look at reality here.

I am looking at reality, thats why I'm going to quote an article from the day after the hit,

Quote:
Asked about whether the Blues should have retaliated to the hit when it happened Wednesday, Hitchcock replied: "It's a long season. It's a long season."

K thanks, that's what I thought. I was watching the Rangers - Devils game and it was listed for 6. Yet another reason to not trust the NHL and its announcers.

And he isn't playing. I think you're being unrealistic if you think the Blues will still be looking to go after Olver NEXT season. That isn't the way they operate.

If this is a response to my post, it seems you misunderstood my position. I am not saying ignore everything, shirk responsibility, and hate/disrespect all people that don't conform to my thinking, as indicated above.

All I am saying is avoiding bad coverage and finding good coverage or piecing together the facts yourself can be a more effective and desired route for some people.

As for the game tonight, I am looking forward to seeing how the lineup functions with Hitch's changes.

I hope NBC has its audio working this game. Seems like every game on NBC the crowd volume is so loud you cant hear the announcers.

It happens constantly with nearly every single announcer/reporter, and it's like nails on a chalkboard for someone whose crime is knowing the right math. In this culture it's a far greater sin to point out errors than to make the errors.
This sums up the last five, sad years of my career.

Jealous. Just played a good 3 hours of roller. Took a pretty good hit too. I should stick to a peanut butter sandwich, but I know I want some hot & spicy chicken ramen.
