I thought the title was going to be "PGT: Nice Gill-Morgan!"

That's what I was thinking too - people are so ridiculously dramatic around here.

If you came on and didn't want to know the score you'd be tipped of by the knee-jerk threads and probably wonder why people were talking about 'Condra for Hart' or on the other hand whether 'Should we light Kuba's car on fire?'

But you see... both those threads could come from the same game!

Speaking of Condra though - I do have to say I think he's my favourite young Sen.

Maybe we should just add "Or did they?" at the end of the title.

I don't see where the complaining is. I am someone who totally hates the complaining, the whining and moaning and I have been VERY vocal about it for years... There's a big difference between a discussion and complaining. If someone was complaining I missed it. All we did (me and Caeldan only I think) was to give our point of view as to why it would be cool to not have spoilers in PGT titles.

There's not really much more than this, and I don't even care if it doesn't change. Like I said (unfortunately you have to repeat A LOT around here), I have my own way of avoiding spoilers. The only thing I need do on HF before watching my PVR'd game is to open the GDT.

The internet has been around long enough to understand that it is full of spoilers. If you PVR a game dont check HFBoards, it is not a hard concept to understand.
lol, this is becoming very "facepalming"

Look, until today, I have NEVER talked about this issue, not even ONCE. I Don't really care, because like I said in other posts that you didn't read, I have my own way to avoid the scores and the ONLY THING I need to do on the internet before watching the PVR'd game is to open the GDT to read it WHILE I watch the game. I'm just used to read the GDT and watch the game at the same time, I like it. Is it ok? lol

"It is not a hard concept to understand". Look, I can say that too.

Just to OPEN the GDT and read it while watching the game. Just trying to replicate the "LIVE EXPERIENCE". But apparently it's a very hard concept and you have to be flamed away for it lol

okay, enough repeating, message should pass now!

Your gonna spend all this useless energy trying to prove who's right/wrong on a pretty simple request. Fellow sens fans asking a favor to other sens fans, don't see the big deal here.

/rant
Ok, I'm kinda relieved a bit after reading that. I thought I was crazy

That being said, in the end I don't even care if it changes or not. My point was more to HELP people that could have issues with it because I totally understand them now (I had my first PVR 1 month ago), always catched most of the games live before

Look Nyquil, I was the one using "adult life". I know you didn't quote me but I'm assuming you have a problem with it? Ok, so this is what I said :

I'll try to bookmark the GDTs in the future, but sometimes I don't have the time or have too many other things in mind. People have to realize not everyone is a student or live with parents, etc. "Adult life" is much more complicated and little details like that are... just little details. It's already enough that I have to think about recording the game
Please explain me what is so bad about it... That term was just used to explain that it can complicated and sometimes impossible to log in and bookmark the GDTs during the day just before the game (so in the end I have to come here to open the GDT). I have no idea why you (or anyone else for that matter) could have any problem with what I have said. What's so "taboo" about it? lol

Maybe it's just language barriers but getting jabs for absolutely nothing is a bit tiring.

Keep in mind that I'm not saying that we can't leave the score out of the PGT. Nor am I trying to dump on anyone here.

Just saying that if you go somewhere to discuss the Sens after a Sens game and see the score don't whine about it.

Of course, but personally I live in Montreal and not a lot of people here talk about the Sens. The chances that I hear about the result of a Sens game before I get home are very slim, even on radio (i don't listen to radio anyway, particulary since CKAC died)

The only time I knew the score before watching a delayed game was because of my wife. It was the game against Boston earlier this year and around 9h30, she went back to TVA to see if the game was over. I was talking on phone and heard from another room (in french) "what a shot by Daniel Paille, 5-2 Boston". I was like , but oh well, at least the disappointment is already over, lol.

Thanks for not dumping on me! One of the few lol. We are only discussing, not fighting.

One more thing. As a die-hard Sens fan, it is also very hard to resist at not wanting to find out the score at times. I come here to open the GDT but the tentation is also there to read other threads and find out. Curiosity

As a person who finds humor in other peoples problems, I enjoy the spoilers in the title.
