Yep, pretty much. Plus Hockey fans are often insecure.

I see the high value in the comic relief you just provided with that statement Jeff!

If you're a man that is... if you're a little whining baby boy, then maybe Basketball is more your cup of tea.

:chuck:

How you came up with such a conclusion? Explain.
PS. Hockey is OK sport.

Vuja 06-30-2011 05:14 PM

Basketball is for smart people.

thought 06-30-2011 05:32 PM

MEM vs. SA... OKC vs. DAL.... MIA vs. CHI.... DAL vs. MIA.... those were all GREAT series IMO. Highly entertaining.

The one thing that I can't stand about the NHL right now is the complete lack of respect that players have for one another. It's disgusting.

I get excited to watch OLYMPIC hockey.... but the NHL? Meh.

+1

re: respect

I remember when you could watch a quality hockey game and more than one dude would be playing without a helmet. There is a difference between trying to kill the competition when they don't have the puck and their head is down, on the one hand, and playing physical.

If you're not a caveman that is...if you're a troglodyte, then maybe Hockey is more your cup of tea.

They're both great sports

pretty much the same for me too, i mean i dont hate hockey, i still watch it and cheer on the leafs, but i definetely put my two favorite sports (basketball and baseball) over it any day

nothing annoys me more than the typical "hockey pucks" we have here in Canada that ONLY like hockey and nothing else

Executives from NBA teams have been given a long list of people connected to players that they will not be allowed to communicate with during a lockout.

The list includes agents, family members of players, employees, amongst many others.

"I'm not even sure I can talk to my own cousins," one general manager tells Yahoo! Sports.

That's messed up. Lol ^

This is a sad situation although NBA players are grossly overpaid and I don't mind the caps for the longevity of the league. The players will cave imo. The owners probably have other revenue sources whereas athletes are dependent on the league and advertisements. No league = less ads.

Does this mean that more people will tune into the Euroleague and NCAA ball?
