Someone Shoot The NHL Season Please

By TSM

By all accounts last week, the season was going to saved. If not that, then the players would vote on the last proposal. Now? Crickets. We are right back to the part where both sides are in the corners pointing to the other side.

If I am a player, here is what I want to know. What happens if the players don’t blink. If the league cancels the season then what? What’s Fehr telling or promising the players?

Meanwhile, as annoying as it is that Bettman fines teams and owners for piping up, don’t you think it’s about time Fehr does the same thing to agents and especially players? For David Krejeci, perhaps a muzzle would be a better idea. Hate to cast a really wide net, but the more some of these guys talk the worse the players look.

Did you notice Damien Cox’s article in the Toronto Star?

“Not sure marginal NHL agent Allan Walsh realizes what a fool he’s making of himself on Twitter these days. He’s gone from being outspoken to idiotic . . .”

Hillarious…

Curious, do you think he is right with this comment?:

“The worst thing about L’Affair Farrell from a Jays perspective is that it reinforces the perspective that Toronto is now a stop-over as a baseball city en route to something better.”

““The worst thing about L’Affair Farrell from a Jays perspective is
that it reinforces the perspective that Toronto is now a stop-over as a
baseball city en route to something better.”

We have an inferiority complex when it comes to sports in this city. What other Blue Jays have used Toronto as a ‘stop over’ for other cities?

Bautista re-upped, Morrow re-upped, EE re-upped, Romero re-upped. Halladay re-upped here once and was here about 11 seasons in total. Delgado re-upped here and was here 9 or 10 seasons.

Maybe guys like Clemens and Burnet used TO as a stop over (but it should be noted they both did sign here as FAs of their own free will).

I dunno. This Farrell thing is bad PR, but that narrative is overdone.

Is Cox talking about himself in this tweet? #douchecanoe

And maybe there are some people in MLB who will think that the Jays made a good move dumping the last contract year of a mediocre manager on a divisional rival and now have the chance to hire someone better?

neither Cox in his original tweet nor TSM in the cheering section give any context for these comments about Walsh.

I’m not about the go digging through his tweets. Anyone care to summarize what the fuss is about?

Cox calling someone an idioit on twitter is a little pot calling the kettle black, no? Cox was just sour because Walsh pointed out a glaring omission from cox’s column on kelley getting power-moved by nhlpa and fehr – which was keeley got dumped because he accessed private, pa meeting minutes he was not privvy to.
