Lots of players have babies. Why is Giroux the only affected?

 

We never run out of excuses to explain this guy.  


Well for one I don't really know about when other players have had babies so I don't know if it affects them or not. The only players I follow are Flyers.

Also I don't care to try to figure out if Ryan Getzlaf's dips in production throughout his career correlate with his children being babies.

 

It is not unreasonable to think this could be part of the problem. This could be a contributing factor for a noticeable decline , not an excuse.

It's very sad honestly where we are today as a society where they would rather have a video of something like this than helping.

I have always gotten a kick out of the quote, "its not worth it". It always seems to come AFTER the first punch has been thrown. Why wasnt it worth it BEFORE the fight happened? And just once, I'd like to know when it is worth it

 

First: I am not an fight recorder. 

I have pulled multiple people from the ocean that were in trouble, I have taken a couple of shots trying to protect a stranger who was getting a beating outside of a club. -Getting hit wasn't worth it. I have asked if women were okay when a man is raising his voice to them in public-more than once.

However in the times when I have been eyewitness to crimes or beatings, and haven't helped it has been because I wasn't paying attention to the situation.  

In one instance I saw a guy running with maybe 5 boxes of sneakers in a mall, before it dawned on me that he was stealing those shoes... he was past the point where I could do anything.

People do tend to just lead their lives and keep their heads down or they figure someone else will take care of it.

The bystander effect is a thing for a reason.

Sorry to hear about what happened to Uncle Ben later... 😎

The Genovese story - while tragic - has at least some of its origins in "sensational" news coverage:

That said, the concept that "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good [people] to do nothing" holds water.

 

And, I don't know about you, but I see several people trying to intervene. And whatever video evidence there is would likely help more than hinder prosecution.

 

"Kyle" clearly has his beer muscles working overtime.

 

Where the H-E-double-hockey-sticks is building security and WHY is this allowed to spill over into a bathroom? BOTH these guys should have been ejected from the arena and held for police.

I tend to not get invovled in the affairs of others, and I try really hard to ignore crimes being committed

He's a multi millionaire professional hockey player and captain if the team. If the way he is playing right now is due to lack of sleep because of a baby, then he is clearly not the person to be in a leadership position. The flyers should find a way to part with him and make sure they no longer sign players with asparations of having a family

@CoachX

clearly, plus the whole ass grabbing thing.

he's got to go- you're right.

Speaking for fellow po-po's, he can pinch my butt all he wants, as long as he puts points on the board

      Bolts win 10 straight. Flyers did a good job in blocking shots, disrupting plays, and even had some real good scoring chances that were foiled by Vasy or bad luck. Bolts took advantage on a goal by Maroon that Niskanen didn't flag down out of the air properly, and it was all the difference. TB stays hot, but the Flyers showed why they have one of the best, if not the best home record in the league....they simply didn't give the Lightning very much to work with and played them tough.

      Greetings:   I'm posting early so Tropical Fruit Girl doesn't ball me out again (Smile)!     I haven't seen posted odds.  We are surprisingly close in points (Tampa 54; Flyers 52).  Tampa is 4th in the league in scoring, 9th in defense.  That tells me we need to play tight D and hope our goalie is "non-road."   LGF!   Howie
