Boston sports fans are suffering? Is this a bad thing?

Wow, that's tight. The upper seats at Detroit LCA are tight, but they also had (and I hope it's been changed) drink holders along the seats in front, which were a total tripping hazard because they were attached low due to space constraints.

That's awesome, even if it is Marchand.

Very similar to the Geoffrey Owens working at Trader Joe's story.

This is why I *fargin'* hate social media. Bunch of clowns disrespecting someone for doing whatever it takes to survive.

Exactly. When those photos of Gary Bettman giving ostriches handjobs at the petting zoo went viral, I was frankly appalled at the sheer level of vitriol on FB. Sheesh, guy's gotta make a living, people.

Jim Montgomery, Stars – Recently received a vote of confidence from ownership, in the sense that they called him f*cking horsh*t in a slightly nicer voice than usual.

Mike Babcock, Maple Leafs – Has been around long enough to know that any decisions about his future will be made by his owner, and so far he hasn’t heard anything from the Boston Bruins.

Step 1 in the coach firing process (having a publicly official trust stamp from the management): check.

The Doughty / Tkachuk feud is my favorite thing so far this year. Look at Girodano with the flying tackle.

DGB did an old-timey youtube clip show article, and --how do I say it?-- these clips are *fargin'* hilarious:

My favorite is when the linesman straight-up Scott Stevenses a fan running on the ice.

That’s the best one yet because he did it with a defender right there. So awesome.

After decades of being bigoted toward Russians and other Europeans, Don Cherry stepped up his game to a whole new level this weekend by attacking immigrants and non-white Canadian descendents of immigrants for not wearing poppies this time of year.

It looks like Don Cherry finally crossed the line and has been fired.

Wow. Yeah that was pretty abrasive, even for him. This goes to show that sportsnet won’t allow anyone to be openly racist on their air for any longer than 30 years.

It must have been the "you people" that did him in. I saw that on Saturday night, but I'm also used to his rants. That's one way to remove him, which surely has been considered for the past couple seasons, as his abilities are diminishing.

Dude hasn't been useful for like 15 years. Good riddance.

Yes, Don Cherry was angry because he thought non-white people were refusing to wear the poppies used to commemorate WWI.

I like how Sportsnet tried the soft "ha ha, Don being Don, what can you do?" approach before realizing that "oh *poo poo*, he's done it this time, we need to cut our losses now."

Maybe he and Barry Melrose can do a show together where they old man whine and predict that Stamkos will never amount to anything.

Too bad he's not speaking french: he could have been welcomed in open arms in some radios here in QC City but he's still too socialist for such a position.
