Recently there have been some animated discussions about various players and prospects, with a lot of back and forth about how good a player is, or how good a prospect might end up being. And at times it's become a bit heated, with replies getting a little over the top, or even getting personal. And no matter how any of us feel about anything the Wings do or don't do, I think that when it reaches the level of personal comments, then nothing good can really come from that, and it's certainly no longer a civil discussion, let alone a productive dialogue. So I'd like to have a little fun with things, and provide a structured yet hopefully entertaining outlet for those who are less than enthusiastic about a given player or prospect. (Or those who just want to crack some jokes.) Introducing: The Player Haters' Thread. This thread is dedicated to GOOD NATURED ribbing of former Red Wing players, current players, and current or former prospects. No cursing, no personal attacks on any fans, no flame wars or taunting. Just using humor to roast those that are (or were) in the Detroit system. But please, keep it fun, or the mods will probably shut things down in a hurry, and I'd rather not ruin would could be a very funny collection of jokes. I'll get things started: You know it's fitting that Tyler Bertuzzi is described as a hard nosed player. Because his nose is as hard to look at as the rest of his face. I mean really, if Mike Ricci and Bea Arthur had a love child, that baby would STILL be better looking than Tyler Bertuzzi. In fact, scientists had been excited to announce him as the missing link in evolution, but chimpanzees rioted in the streets, because they were so insulted. I mean, he does a great job on the ice, but some people look like they've been beaten with an ugly stick...and some look like they fell out of the ugly tree, and hit every last branch on the way down. Happy roasting!
