Rossi: Cooke, son share sweet scene.

Nice article on Cooke. I posted it mainly because I feel like some people give Cooke a bad rap even though he is nothing but class off the ice.

It's a nice thing for Cooke and his son, but that article just further proves what a hack, subjective journalist Rossi is. There isn't an ounce of objectivity in anything he writes, and it's getting annoying to read him. He sounds like a delightfully homerific fan.

Did Rossi really think this was a good subject for an article? Breaking news: Parents love their kids. I'm annoyed at myself for reading the whole thing. What a hack.

Neat article but nothing earth shattering.

Parents love their kids. NHL players teach their kids how to skate at young ages, just like regular parents do.

Wow....really????

Tune in next issue when Rossi writes about his discovery on how.....the sky is blue!!!!!

Good for Cookie and his son (future winger anyone ), but this is hardly news worthy. I mean it'd be interesting to see how many other of the guys who have little ones are teaching their kids to skate, or, are doing so at the CEC. I'm sure Cookie isn't the only one.

Besides, the fact that it deals with Matt Cooke is the only reason that this is an article. If it were about some average Joe Schmoe, we wouldn't be reading it.

I always pictured Cooke and his son being like Kimmel and his son on the man show.



I guess they're not, though.

Definitely gets annoying with his homer views.

Lies! In reality Matt Cooke is a deadbeat dad who denies his son an education to shape him in his own warped image:



Now that kid may look cute today but in 10-15 years he'll be going around elbowing people in the head. And Rob Rossi did nothing to prevent it.

Confusing as hell article.

Why do I care about the differences between schools in the US & Canada?

Yeah, Rossi writes like a high school kid. I hope he reads this board (he probably gets most of his "rumors" here, after all) so he can see how many people think he sucks. I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone say anything positive about him.

He probably does read it just to laugh at us. No matter how much of a talentless hack he is the guy gets paid to do something we pay to do for fun. There is no God.

Pretty soon I'm going to apply for the ****ing job because I could do it better than Rossi, from Chicago, on 4 hours sleep every day. Literally. As long as I had phone access to these guys I could do it.

Pittsburgh media is just bush league. California Penal League of journalism. Federal League. Oklahoma Horse Hoof League. Florida Swamp League. Mississippi Pig ****er's League.

Rossi is perhaps the most accomplished graduate from the WVU Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism.

Oh, he went to WVU? That explains a lot.

(Sorry, WVP.)
