I know most dont like Madden

Postby MarioLives on Tue Jun 11, 2013 7:53 am

But I was listening to his show earlier and he was talking about Cooke. Man he does not like him. He said that he heard straight from the Penguins players that they were tired of cleaning up Cooke's mess. Madden told this to the Boston media, it got back to Cooke, and now Cooke is mad at Madden......

This is the stuff they were worrying about during the Boston series?? Makes you wonder.

If this is to be true. I can see them being upset at his reputation and not him as a person/teamate. Cooke is a profesional and it should be treated that way

I like Cooke and he is a good player. But he is now too much trouble than he is worth. Stuff just follows him whether his fault or not.

I can see why they don't like Cooke, considering he made them look bad with his consistent play.

Sounds like utter crap from Madden.

I look forward to Cooke (hopefully) being around for a couple more years. :thumb:

Madden is just the ultimate troll. What is so great is that everyone knows he's doing it and still run right into it. The guy really is an incredible entertainer.

I actually find him very entertaining to listen to. But I agree, I hope the Pens sign cooke.

But for him to say players actually said they are tired of dealing with his stuff, is pretty bold, if not true.

As Idoit said, Madden is the ulimate troll.

He made something up, and it's getting traction. Just what he wanted.

Can we make a board rule to never quote or discuss anything Madden utters? You could fit that guy's hockey knowledge in a thimble and still get your finger inside.

Madden is knowledgeable about hockey. He's just more knowledgeable about getting ratings and that also happens to be his priority.

Your first statement is questionable at best. He's a regurgitator, that is all. Anything he talks about hockey-wise is stolen from someone else. Drumming up drama and pumping up ratings is definitely his specialty. He'd be a good hype man at a strip club, which I'm sure he has applied for before.

Cook has done a lot to clean up his act, but he suffers from Dave Schultz syndrome, as long as he does he might not be worth the aggravation.

He also called him the best player in the NYI series and noted his consistency against OTT. His listenership goes way down when hockey ends, so not surprising he finds new things to blow up.

.......I felt for Schultz when he was here, it was comical. He'd hit the ice and seemingly skate close by one of the opposition and get whistled for 2, after a while it did border on the absurd, but his rep was already made and that's what you had to deal with if he was on your team.

The biggest problem with Madden is that he speaks as fan boy too much. He thinks there is a divide amongst fans regarding Sid and Gino and does his best to try and exacerbate this supposed divide. He'll blast any player who doesn't come on his show but if a player does Madden's show, that player can do no wrong. It's kind of disturbing that he refers to Pens players as his "friends." He shouldn't be jock-sniffing. It's creepy and it also interferes with what little objectivity he has.

I guess I am in the minority here then. I think he knows quite a bit about hockey. At least he puts effort in is. What other host in Pittsburgh talks as much hockey?

Cooke is a sad story. Before all the suspensions, he was our pest. He was the guy that rubbed everyone the wrong way. He can't or doesn't even try to anymore because he just ends up in the box automatically. It's a shame because he's got a lot of other pluses, but at this point I wonder whether someone else could fit in his role.

oh. Your point is so unthinkable..... I thought you meant he was regurgitating what he learned from players or coaches about the game itself.

(Excluding former NHL players) There isn't one writer, television personality or radio guy in this city who knows more about hockey than Madden. Not one.
