I just wanted to know how RNH was proceeding. I didn't expect biological faith healers plying their trade online!

Who'd a thunk?

i have no idea how heavy RNH actually is, all i'm saying is that teams list incorrect numbers *on purpose* all the time
A) If you "know for a fact" that NHL teams provide false information on player height and weight then please provide a link to back it up. Until that happens, lets just call it your opinion.

B) If they list incorrect numbers "on purpose," then please explain what that purpose is. Because I personally cannot think of a single benefit they would get from falsifying information.



Something tells me I'll be waiting a while for this proof/explanation.

well i know a few former CFL players personally that have told me this happens in football a lot... the reasoning i've never really understood myself, but you're asking me to know what somebody else's motivation is, which is kind of impossible... my *guess* would be that they want smaller players to look bigger on paper so that opposing teams don't take advantage of a smaller/bigger player matchup (ex: a small CB trying to cover a 6'4" WR).... this doesn't make any sense to me, as other teams would know about this on their own, it's not like they are checking the official stats or anything when deciding on matchups.... like a said, it doesn't make any sense to me, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen.... i know it does

as for the NHL, my knowledge isn't as direct, it is second-hand... ie: i know people who know NHL players who have said this happens... if you check my post history, you can probably guess which exact player i'm talking specifically about... the lie in this case wasn't making the player bigger, it was actually to make him weigh less (pretty big hint there if you know my post history)

if that isn't good enough for you, then well, i don't really care

Well I notice all weight are usually rounded off, so my guess is they round up all the time. If your 6 and a half feet thats always 6 feed, if your 121 pounds your 125. However I have a hard time believing it goes beyond that. I just don't see why Edmonton would say Gagner weights 20 pounds more than he does. However, as you suggest just because I don't know why, doesn't mean it doesn't happen.

ps. the irony is that if every team does it, then it doesn't really matter. Nuge is in effect as big as they say, because every other player in the NHL also isn't as big as they say.
