He'll probably use that quote on his next tour poster.

I think both of them will.

That's legal! Looks like assault to me.

Yes on both counts. Checking is legal as long as you are separating the player from the puck, but there's some latitude given to that. A couple of the hits on that highlight reel might get whistled in today's NHL, but the majority would still be absolutely fine. It isn't a sport for shrinking violets.

1. Verizon.  2) Comcast 3) At&T

All c*nts, but not the beneficiaries that scare me. The fact that news networks whose agenda better suits the corporate aims of the big telcos will be given preferential access to consumers scares the living f*ck out of me.

The FCC has also introduced plans to scrap the 39% media ownership cap.

Chris Neil retired today. The only time you've seen Neil is in the Rangers playoff series last season; Tanner Glass spent the first two games physically dominating us, so in game 3 they dressed Neil who came onto the ice every time Glass did, and as soon as Glass did something that vaguely merited a confrontation (I think he might have got a bit too close to Anderson) Neil went for him and kicked his ass. Glass disappeared for the rest of the series and the Sens dominated.

He played 15 seasons for the team as our enforcer. He is the franchise leader in penalty minutes, a number which will almost certainly never be beaten, and despite the huge number of fights, penalties and bonecrushing hits, he was never suspended by the league. He is also one of the nicest guys in sport and a huge community in Ottawa.

This video shows you the kind of hits he laid (and bear in mind that every single one of these was legal) - the last one, on Johnny Boychuk, I was in the arena to see, and it was incredible. For a moment the entire crowd simultaneously winced and went "oooooooooooh" in sympathy, then went quiet at the realisation that someone could be seriously hurt.

We will not see his like again.

4 million more votes.  Unfortunately most of Trump's supporters (and they are mostly down south but not all of them), haven't been swayed by his behaviour at all.  I do find it funny that most of them called Obama a communist because of Obama care (and most of these states have benefited the most from the affordable care act) but don't believe that Trump colluded with the actual commies. 

You couldn't make it up. 

Also more white women voted for Roy Moore down there than men.  That is beyond f*cked up.  Luckily other voters came out and said f*ck this kiddy fiddling tw@t.  As for evidence.  He was banned form a shopping centre (which is almost impossible to do) for harrassing 14 year old school girls as that is a matter of record.  He was in his 30's at the time.  

Alabama will fall back into Republican hands in the next election as this is the most evangelical state of the union and Bob Jones is for Abortion amongst other normal things and that apparently is a crime to them in good 'ol Albama.   Cnuts!


Chicago: Happy on Tuesday.

Russ is more or less right.  The Net in the US of A has always been unspokenly neutral.  A fair and equitable internet for all.  That's what it was always deemed until Comcast decided a few years ago that they wanted a bigger piece of the pie and tried to hold Netflix to ransom by slowing down their speeds until they paid more.  Now this happened because the former FCC chairman also used to be the Chairman of Comcast (see where this is going?) but Obama saw that this was naughty and basically ordered that no ISP should or could take advantage of others as it would be a detriment to enterprise on the internet.  Flash forward to now and the Trump administration don't give a fcuk and are hell bent on destroying everything Obama did and the new chairman of the FCC just declared (even after sh!t tons of false information that was fabricated by them, (dead people voting for and commenting in favour of the end of net neutrality) that screw the consumer.  Three tier pricing is being phased in and now service providers have the ability to block anything they don't like (I.E. the competition) and this will basically screw everybody over especially new businesses. 

Oh yeah did i mention that the cnut in charge used to be the head executive salesman for Verizon.  Who do you think benefits from this new rule?    1. Verizon.  2) Comcast 3) At&T  4) nobody else.

Yep seems fair to me.     http://mashable.com/2017/12/14/net-neturality-fcc-vote/#bf.TF7H8pqqh
