oh ok hey do mind answering my first comment?

Jason Kent

Hit were you one of those little twerps on the school playground who threw rocks at people and stuck your tongue out at them until they finally beat the crap out of you just so you could go running to the teacher and tattle?
All you do is make lame jokes at the expense of players and other posters but when you get called out on it or someone dishes it back at you, you play the go crying to Justin card. Retard? Idiot Jerk? What are you going to call me? Poop Head?

Hit Somebody!!!

You said it.

We have a hurt player that has battled all summer long to come back to the team and we get that turd of a post making fun of him. And yes. Whoever posted that is an idiot jerk.

Jason Kent

Ok Hit. You are just the man to put everyone in their place. Keep up the good work dude.

Hit Somebody!!!

Your welcome man of 1,000 posted names.

Jason Kent

Keep going dude. Let's hear some more wisdom.

I hope henley is ok and we all weren't just Barkin' at a Knot. Maybe just the bat wings caused some irritation or something, i know it did when i wore 'em. i don't think we are Between Hay and Grass but i sure hope brent is ok.

Justin Cohn

Ok, Jason Kent, Abeatenhorse, John R, uh oh, Duane Joyce, Derek M -- Yes, I know you're all the same person -- this is your one warning. Continue the threats, and that type of stuff, and you're off.

Thanks Cohny. Any word on Henley?

Komets210

Henley wont be playing tomorrow night. They're going to look at his knee in the morning. This sucks...I really wanted to see him play Saturday. And when I say "play" I really mean fight :)

chuckitt

good job justin. hit was right, henley is too talented and has worked too hard to come back and have someone call him a no talent. even guinn has talent, even tho he was a -3 tonight. hit you were wrong tho, kakulka has only 7 points not 11. those 7 put him in with a bunch of other guys so one had to go and there were a bunch who are interchangable so one had to go and im sure between the coach and the gm there are good reasons why some stay and some go. justin , any word on the injuries? mad ants had an exciting game tonight, hope the ks keep it goin sat and sunday!!!

Hit Somebody!!!

Hope Brent is ok. He not only is fun to watch on the ice...he has been really cool to his fans off the ice too. Hope we get to see him play real soon. We can all agree that he is fun to watch. I wish everyone a safe trip to the game tomorrow night. It is looking like the weather is going to be pretty bad between tonight and tomorrow night.

First off about Henley. I had the oppurtunity to meet him at a Wizards game last year, and I can only hope for the best. Not only is he fun to watch on the ice, but he he is a awesome person off the ice. I hope the injury is not serious and he can continue his career. Second, I realize Justin just warned the instigator in all of this, but there is common thread with all of his post. That is Hit Somebody. I don't care what anyone says, using the word retard is absoulutly ridiculous. Be a bigger man would ya one time Hit Somebody. He was being sarcastic with a Worly comment and you blew it out of proportion. I never go away from hockey on this board, but using the word retard shouldn't be tolerated, and I won't sit here and not speak my mind. If he can speak his mind with that word, so can I. Talk hockey, and stop the jabs period. I try to add hockey talk to this board, but if this is going to continue, I am going to have to start my own blog. Justin, that is in no way intended in disrespect to you. You do a great, and I repeat a GREAT job. That word just hits home with me.

Justin Cohn

Hit is on thin ice from time to time, and he knows it, and you're correct, such a comment is wrong, but some of the deleted stuff by Abeatenhorse was across the line.

Maybe I should just turn off the comments altogether? Hmm, I don't think you all want that. Tone it down.

Hit Somebody!!!

I apologize to you Jerad. I have seen a pattern with this guy for several months. Posting different names over and over with the same non-sense over and over. Once again I am sorry.

Jerad Shaw

I really hope it doesn't come to that Justin. You do a great job with this blog. Even though I disagree alot with people on this board, I still love hearing everyone's opinion. I am learning the game of hockey more and more reading people's post. I'm sure abeatenhorse has made some way beyond the line comments, but that was just one comment that I saw that really upset me. I know there are people going to make comments that I don't agree with, and there alot of words that can be used that I can shrug off. I'm sorry, I'll stop. I'm breaking my golden rule on this board and I apoligize for that. Hope Henley is okay. At this point if it is a knee, and the same knee, you have to worry about a career. On a positive note, we can still get 6 points this weekend. Let's go K's!!!

I appreciate it. When I was a basketball player at Warsaw, I worked with alot of handicapped kids and reffed their games. ( Back then, they knew who I was and loved that I showed up to their games.) It was just a raw nerve. I knew its used alot, but I respect them because of the life they have to lead and the way they live it. I understand you were fired up, and all of us have said stuff when we were fired up that we didn't mean in the way it was said. I appreciate the apology, and I respect all of your opinions. I think you know alot about hockey and have learned alot from you!!! Now the joke time! I guess I will rewrite my sign for tomorrow night about ya!!! Thanks again for stepping up. Shows alot to me!
