You go from "well, if the NHL is coming why aren't people talking about it, blah blah blah" to "if Gale was trying to get people talking about the NHL in Hartford, he did it in a stupid way" So now, people have to talk about it...and they have to talk about it in a way that meets your approval.

Deep breath, Mark. Remember, "one of the many wonder**l things about America is that everybody has a right to their opinion". I'm just sharing mine.

Whose standards should I be trying to meet? Yours? :lol:

Thanks, but I'll stick to my standards.

Oh yeah, state of Ct is just buzzing about John Gale's editorial. About 30 or 35 people bothered to comment in Courant about his opinion piece.

Your standards seem to change daily, depending on your mood...or what your father tells you.

Reality is almost nobody is talking about John Gale piece in Courant. Almost nobody is talking about Nhl coming back to Hartford since stupid Gale opinion piece ran in Courant. Less then 20 people have posted on these boards in 6 days since Gale's dopey opinion piece ran. And I am willing to bet that more then half of those posts are from you and Whalevolution and TimmyfromBoosters. And this is message board dedicated to talking about Whalers! There is very small group of people interested in talking and posting about this **** and the same people are just talking and posting back and forth at each other over and over and over again. NHL coming back to Hartford is not nearly as interesting and important a topic to the majority of Ct residents as you, me, Whalevolution, and 20 or so regulars on this message board like to think that it is. Sad and disappointing and frustrating, but true. There are 3.5 million people in state of Ct and a message board dedicated to hartford Whalers is lucky if it can get 20 people to post on it in any regular kind of way. That is ******* sad and pathetic and frustrating!

You can't have an opinion on this board.. I speak to many people about the whalers and all the news I hear..actually my cousins husbands were here for my daughters party and they had all the knowledge of what was going on.. plenty of people are talking about it, and most importantly the right people are..

If you want a flamewar over a comment go off to reddit, and downvote stuff there. Jersey is just trying to say that people will get mad at you because you state your opinion on something. It's not incredibly hard to understand.

Jersey is mad that people don't agree with him completely. He doesn't want to debate are allow everyone to have their own opinion. "Non-believers", "anti-hartford", give me a break. Every opinion that doesn't match his own is met with a retarded nickname.

Will I have debated with you and even agreed with you on some things, but that's about how far it goes.. a certain few here have to have the last say and it can't be any other way..give yourself a break

Sure voice your opinions I just don't like the fact that the only thing this board is good at is starting flamewars, and defeating the purpose of itself.

Back and forth *****fests and pissing contests and flamewars out here make the US Congress look like a church social. :lol: When it comes to gridlock and character **********ination and dys**nction Democrats and Republicans have got nothing on us. Which is pathetic and frustrating when you realize most of us want same thing - for NHL to come back to Hartford.

I have been long enough to see that, but I like to imagine that one day, we will get this board to stop being a flamewar, and reasonable discussions will actually be able to occur.

Chris "Grand Wizard" Powell's point seems reasonable until you google him and discover a good 89-90% of all his JI editorials over last 10 years focus entirely on "thinly veiled to completely David Duke obvious style" racist rants on Hartford (even if most people here silently agree w him at least they don't blast it out daily like it was 1964)

Here's what I wonder as I didn't live here at the time....I'm *****uming that the NH Coliseum was still up and semi running when Bridgeport built the midget ballpark and wannabe Fleetcenter correct? Why wasn't the harboryard thing built in New Haven instead, a longtime hockey market with a great tradition? Seems silly of NH to let Bridgeport (a true ****hole) take much of it business away, etc.

It's of course discouraging that Will can't understand simple math of why Hartford can't just ala Greenwich magically fix its books by being wildly rich and "responsible" but let's just leave that. The point of why rest of state has to be in same boat with Hartford is that the whole region goes down economically without a strong CENTRAL CITY. It's not possible to ride the 169 little fiefdoms model anymore, world is all connected.

 

NOW that said, that idea is asinine and will never happen for about 169 reasons LOL ranging from league would never allow it to it was just designed to keep Whalers news and momentum alive. It is pretty brilliant in that it MAY have been introduced for the sole public relations purpose of making the private investment idea proposed just days later seem less "wahhh it can't happen" and more sensible. Which of course it is.
