  1. Great play by Suzuki on the tying the goal. The Habs have now forced OT 4 out of 8 times when trailing after two periods.
  2. No, your refusal to consider others' viewpoints is a symptom of your privilege. You've never had to and there's no reason for you to start now. On the other hand, some people have no choice but to deal with racism and xenophobia in their day to day lives. So hypothetically, there is nothing that a TV personality could ever say that would offend you or make you think they should be de-platformed? What Cherry said wasn't offensive to you, but it was to many others.
  3. Again, you're skating by the point I made about you being close-minded about people with different experiences than you. That is privilege. Some people have to deal with a lot of the sh*t the world has to offer, and others have the privilege of avoiding it. The least you can do with privilege is be aware of it.
  4. If you truly believe that 'If you feel uncomfortable about what other people say, then you have the problem', then you've never had to deal with racism, or xenophobia, or anyone's bigotry infringing on your own life, and worse still, you sound close-minded towards people who have had different experiences than yours. Sure, and Sportsnet can fire him if they feel he's negatively affecting their brand.
  5. Lol, avoiding the actual points I made and playing the victim. The right would be proud of your aversion to substance. If you don't want to be called an ignorant curmudgeon, don't act like one.
  6. Social media has given an amplified voice to diverse views that wouldn't have been heard in the old media landscape. Sure, there are strong and weak points to the 'woke' culture you bemoan, just as there are strong and weak points to small town Canadian culture. Each is a type of 'bubble'. If you truly believe that 'If you feel uncomfortable about what other people say, then you have the problem', then you've never had to deal with racism, or xenophobia, or anyone's bigotry infringing on your own life, and worse still, you sound close-minded towards people who have had different experiences than yours. That's why I said you sound like an ignorant curmudgeon.
  7. Lol so it's the people uncomfortable with racism and xenophobia who have the problem, not the people who are racist and xenophobic? Just because you live in a bubble and don't have these sorts of problems to deal with doesn't mean they don't exist for other people. You just sound like an ignorant old curmudgeon who is annoyed that he had to consider someone else's viewpoint for 15 seconds.
  8. He apologized, Don didn't. Is that so hard to understand?
  9. I watched Coach's Corner on Saturday, and was thoroughly entertained by Don's incoherent rants and jumbled thoughts, and of course was a little shocked at how he went overboard near the end. He could have targeted people like me, native-born Canadians who generally don't wear a poppy, but he indulged in his xenophobic fantasies again. He clearly shouldn't have a national platform, but then again, I find him more entertaining than the other segments HNIC offers up. He probably should have been canned long ago, but I'll miss Coach's Corner on Saturday nights for the unintentional laughs.
  10. That's similar to what people said about the #8 seed Kings that won the Cup. They were stacked and a pre-season Cup favourite.
  11. Price stole us that point, shame it had to end like that. Nice to see the penalty kill come through big, especially after that awful delay of game.
  12. Got lucky with that offside call, and neither goalie was amazing. Can't believe Mete didn't shoot for the hattie on that breakaway, some poor schmo in the crowd would have had to marry his girlfriend as per his sign.
  13. Oh well, Kotka should draw back in next game. He can at least ding a one-timer!
  14. I love the early pull that led to the tying goal, hopefully shows CJ's willingness to adapt.
  15. Sweet pass by Petry, and who was that who let Domi sneak in? Max on Max crime!
