I hate it when I'm right all the time. That does explain the hockey on the cheap mentality.

Can we finally get the "fire Wadell" idiocy to go away now? Wadell has always done EXACTLY what the owners have wanted, running the team as cheaply as possible while standing up and lying for the owners about their intent.

Bongo/cheapseats:

You guys are exactly right. Ownership has demanded that the Thrashers be run with an NHL low payroll. They care only about skimping $, not winning games.

Now, try posting that sentiment on the HF boards and you will be unceremoniously run.

Only if you fucking bitch and moan about it endlessly in game day threads taking them off topic.

Nice hyperbole BTN. One post about the AHL qaulity line-up that the Thrashers' braintrsut has put together amounts, in your mind, to "endless bitching?"

Good thing you are a "global moderator" over there, otherwise half your posts, pointing out the same failings, would be deleted as well.

well is it just me or did tonights implosion smell like giving up?

heres the way my paranoid and highly overactive imagination got to this conclusion.
friday the lawsuit comes out late afternoon.
team wont have heard about it or much about it.
saturday yet another game day. busy with morning skate getting ready and all that. dont really have tons of time to read ppr online etc.
flight to tampa got nothing better to do read paper etc. find out. start talking about it with rest of team.

all in all wouldnt that type of story just completely demoralise ya?

If not for the fact that I've worked for some pretty stupid people, all of this would be hard to believe.

The owners want to sell the team so they slash payroll by not resigning star players, let the arena go to shit, driving away a once large and loyal fanbase in the process. Then sue their lawyers because they can't find anybody to take this shitty mess off their hands. It's like a Pauly Shore movie.

If this ends badly, the NHL will be giving the finger to the City of Atlanta once again.

HFboards is a joke. The threads on the Thrashers board are created by 15 year old morons posting stupid pictures, and basement-dwelling subhumans who never actually attend the games. A very, very small fraction seems to actually understand the game of hockey. From what I've seen, if you don't post anything positive, you get chastised by these morons and the moderators will delete/edit your post.

Speaking of the moderators, do they get paid? If they aren't getting paid, then they have go to be some of the most pathetic people ever. Talk about not having a life!

I've been tempted to create an account on there in the past, but then I realized it's not worth the time arguing with children and World of Warcraft nerds who never leave their parents' basement.

SO MUCH FOR ALL YOU FANS THAT HAD YOUR HIGH HOPES ON PHILLIPS DEAL THATD KEEP THE TEAM. THE ONLY THING THAT KEPT YOUR HOCKEY TEAM HERE WAS YOUR OWNERS OWN STUPIDITY. FEEL BETTER?

TAKE IT FROM A FAN OF THE NORDIQUES AND EXPOS AND RAIDERS GROWING UP.

YES YOUR OWNERS ARE VULCHERS. BUT VULCHERS ARE ONLY ATTRACTED TO PICKED OUT CARCISSES. TURNER HAD 2 OPTIONS TO UNLOAD THE TEAM BACK THEN. A USED CAR SALESMAN FROM TEXAS. AND YOUR OWNERS. AS FAR AS I CAN TELL THE ONLY GOOD THING TO EVER COME OUT OF TEXAS IS FRITO PIE, STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN AND A PLANE HEADED FOR OUT OF STATE SO CONSIDER YOUR SELFS MORE LUCKY THEN YOU CD HAVE BEEN.
