    Yep, I remember.

    I'm the same on Murray. In fact, we could use Bryan around these days to keep the lid on the can of crazy this organization has become. His best skill as a GM was giving credibility to the organization.

    Amazing.

    Legit LOL'd at the terrible French translation and the bit about letting the translator go.

    I wonder if EM gets pissed off enough, if he would ban this guy from ever buying another ticket? Can he do that or as long as the guy is buying tickets who cares what he says or does, just keep spending your money on my product?

    Not sure what this will accomplish really, it may influence a few fans but somehow I doubt it accomplishes much. I doubt EM sells anytime soon & will likely continue to sell off assets to reduce costs & hope to rebuild a winner with the prospects in a few yrs. Maybe when the new arena is ready, the team will also be in a position to make the playoffs & challenge for a cup run.

    I’m not defending Melnyk by any stretch, but if if I was him and someone put up billboards attacking me, I would ban the fool and anyone who publicly donated. It’s a private establishment. You don’t have a right to go to the CTC and watch hockey.

    I wouldn't want to alienate any potential customers if I was him. Even if those customers are angry with him. He needs money.

    I can be more sarcastic, if you wanted.

    I'm pretty good at making fun of myself/ having fun at my own expense. :laugh:

    Just wait until Eugene trades EK and kills the return by attaching Ryan's deal to save some $...

    Billboards will be the least of Melnyk's problems.

    To be fair, I was posting some material concerning what was actually said by another poster because I was interested, I never made the promise claim.

    And also, that was the paper's wording. Not the guy's original statement, FWIW.

    LOL

    I just re-read that "tweet" --> When has a team not shed payroll after not making the playoffs?

    I can't wait until you all see what happens next year. The fans and Melnyk are scared!

    Use your time on something positive. Nothing but negativity will amount from this. Nothing.

    My reference to your statement was in reply to someone who made reference to your statement to me. It’s good to like yourself, to an extent.

    Sorry to have brought in your dad in that story in the process. I’m sure he’s a good man.

    I don’t feel sarcasm; but, sure, carry on.

    7-4 tonight... what a game!

    The French translation doesn’t make sense. Funny sign though...

    Agreed.

    I’m thinking it’s more of a statement.

    Hypothetically speaking though, if 5,000 fans contributed to that billboard and were ticket holders, you think EM would prevent them from attending?

    Hypothetically, you go after the ringleader.

    The original post suggested the ring leader and all contributors.

    Personally, I feel EM won’t care much one way or the other. He may have to make some type of public statement about it however, as the media will certainly seek out comments from the President.

    Come on people.. that's the joke! It literally says under the French in brackets that the translator was fired.

    I like that kind of understated joke

    I'll show myself out then. :|

    I saw some replies on Twitter from people who I'm sure were dead serious that the French was wrong... I kinda projected that into the forums

    I think STH would have a much more effective way of letting their feeling known to the Senators, IF they were in the "hate Melnyk" camp, via their ticket agent/contacts.

    In reality only 429 people donated to the GFM Billboard thingy.
