You obviously haven't been here long. This board has been one big "flamewar" for a long time.

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.

Right. People didn't stop coming here because of me. They stopped coming after the CT Whale brand died.

 

It might be a hard thing for you to comprehend, but I do have opinions. It's just that you re**se to acknowledge them. You view me and others as "anti-Hartford" just because we're WP fans and even though I've been going to Hartford games for over 20 years now.

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.

Yes true, but equally to more likely his asinine idea totally distracted attention of the idiots away from attacking the whole "private investment will save this renovation" concept.

 

The Republican response to the private investors idea was by the Rep. Simpleton Davis from Ellington who simply said "well that's the ONLY scenario I can see holding nose and reluctantly supporting (private investment) and I wish they'd gone down this road so much sooner....it's the only hope XL has"

 

By the way, Go Geno A the other day with his plain spoken "renovate or we're not going to keep winning a damn thing" lecture to the attending pols and bigshots attending his talk.

Yes. The only place in the whole wide world you have to sneak the NHL under the noses of the "citizenry" under cover of women's basketball and **nding 12 dollars over 36 fiscal years LMAO

Anyone who doesn't support the NHL or at least the XL renovation IS by *****ociation with what will then occur to the city "ANTI HARTFORD"

 

It's that important to the city's **ture. Oh and yeah there are probably only 20 of us who think about this topic, but mark my words (no pun intended LOL) everyone and their cousin will claim to have been it's biggest proponent if the NHL comes back.

Yeah well just because I don't believe an NHL return is imminent and adding a second concourse and a few thousand seats when there is no lease in hand for NHL or AHL does not make me anti hartford.

I agree, Ganim is not going to be governor. I think Connecticut's voters are going to support someone who will be the Donald Trump of Connecticut (Larry Kudlow). Connecticut needs to become business friendly...

Are you printing the fraudulent ballots for Gamin, Timmy? You sound confidant that Connecticut will elect him 1 1/2 years from now!

Serious question, Wolfdude, how many Wolfpack players bought boats from Connecticut marine dealers? Whalers used to buy boats from my dad's friend (who owns a marina), he never sold one yet to a Wolf player.
