However, your comeback mercenary jokes in the iggy and alfie threads make it just as bad. So good job on calling out yourself.
Yeah, I'm hearing exactly what you are saying here. Just let him/her have his Jagr-worship thread and who cares? After seeing this in the Iggy/Alfi threads (substitute the names since it was a copy/paste anyway), I changed my mind:
"Iginla is all about the $$$ Boston were the highest bidder. He's a mercenary. Nothing more/nothing less." x2
Iggy has played over 1200 games with one team and now is joining his 3rd team after two months of being traded by Calgary to the Pens.
Alfie had 1178 games with Ottawa before departing.
If these guys are mercenaries, how does it sound for a guy like Jagr who has:
Pens-Capitals-Rangers-Flyers-KHL-Stars-Bruins? Or "dying alive?" Jagr just wants a paycheck anywhere he can get it. A guy like Hossa was going to get the same paycheck no matter where he went so he got to choose his options. Jagr is more merc than Hossa. Iggy and Alfie don't even enter into the conversation.
I get the attempt at sarcasm, but it's a huge FAIL.
