    I get the feeling of watching and rejecting a tv series everyone was raving about: The Walking Dead. Interesting idea to make a zombie world serial but it was written for teenagers with zero life experience.

    I suspect if you can't empathize with the angry desperate main character in Breaking Bad, it's a tough ride. Maybe people in the hockey world can't relate for the most part because they've lived their dream. Although I suspect Mike Commodore might love the series. ;)

    see but he doesn't have to give a reason why it's trash he just thinks it's trash.
    LOL i think you are wrong thinking game of thrones is boring af and thinking it's trash but i wouldn't demand reasons from you why, or give you a hard time about it.

    well like i said. a TONNE of people feel that breaking bad is extremely good. or the best series ever. (I respect their opinion).
    I don't think you have to watch the entire series to go it's overrated. and if everyone is blowing smoke up something's butt and you had 13 episodes to convince me (and failed) I'm sorry - I'd probably think it was overrated too. He did watch it. and he thinks it's overrated. that should really be the end of that. I don't know (or feel) that an opinion is invalidated because you only watched 1 season vs. 3 (5-7-21 ;) looking at you, Law and Order..)

    but in Sports news.
    seriously. i did not miss Andi at all.
    can she go back on vacation?

    Of course he doesn't have to give a reason, but he can be asked for a reason.

    If noone on message board gave reasons for their opinions, then there wouldn't be much discussion.

    right but that's fair. but how it was asked wasn't really nice, was it - and so maybe that's where my defense came from.

    I stopped listening to Overdrive because Hayes is turning into an idiot. I tuned in for a little bit and Hayes clearly doesnt know what he is talking about, listening to him talk about baseball is ridiculous. He clearly knows nothing about baseball.

    Can't believe they let that moron Merill Hoge on yesterday. His level of arguing is Glen Beck level.

    As for Breaking Bad, amazing show. I'd personally have it below the Wire and Sopranos. There are some other shows I'd have on par such as Deadwood.

    It's just wrong though. The main characters aren't heroes and aren't glorified. They're terrible people surrounded by chaos of their own doing. You're not supposed to like them.

    I don't even really like the show, couldn't get into it. But yeah.

    Wire way down the list. Watched every season. Good, but in my opinion, overrated.

    And since it’s a Toronto media thread, I’ll just say I watched Gord Miller for the first time on Monday afternoon, and he was super smug and annoying as hell. Stick to play calling.

    your defense of troll like posting is odd and unnecessary. if everyone simply came on these boards throwing out hot takes like "Marner is the most overrated player in NHL history!" without a single point to back it up, these forums would be "trash". the difference between a troll/idiot and one who is not is providing reasons for hot takes and opinions. obviously no one is forced to - using that logic no one is forced to do ANYTHING at all in this world - but 'oddly enough' there are still expectations of humanity isn't there? moving on..

    These media guys know they can get cheap attention by saying it. That's why it's mentioned a ridiculous amount of times this season despite not occuring in 6 years. Even Marner's dad mentioned Leaf players are only said to get offersheets, no other players.

    Yup. He's got to understand if you use that line constantly to try to back-up your point, it's going to lose it's luster fast. It's very annoying.

    I can say, with full certainty, that the rest would be no better. When the hype is THAT far from reality, why waste another minute?

    Not really no the show got boring and formulaic after the second season. Once he broke bad there was nothing left to watch.

    well sure but like i said i think it was more how you asked (I thought it was kind of harsh) then someone said something else about it and the response again felt harsh. not to mention, the poster is a very good friend of mine so I will admit i was also a bit defensive. it is what it is.

    BTW, he' s not in the media anymore, but anyone read Howard Berger's blogs? I swear, he knows nothing about hockey. LOL. He think the cost for Wayne Simmons is William Nylander.
    I love Simmonds, but he' s UFA, on pace for less points and screams Milan Lucic in his new deal he'll get.

    Lucic? That’s a big unfair to Simmonds who was always a better offensive player and can still skate.

    It seems like almost every 2nd line winger 27-35 that hits free agency turns into a contract that doesn't look too good.

    Okloso, Ladd, Eriksson, Lucic, Neal, Kovalchuk, Backes
