THE SKY IS FALLING!!!

Postby npv708 on Sat Sep 20, 2008 10:35 pm

The Pens just lost a big, big game that didn't feel like a preseason game. This team is doomed. Trade Crosby, Trade Malkin, Fire MT, Wake Up RS, heck Wake Up CP.

I'm so glad it's nearly hockey season. Not only do we get the people freaking out over a loss, we also get the people freaking out over people freaking out.

Over reaction much? Give the announcer a break. He wasn't THAT bad.

You could have turned it off then, you know - to save your hearing. I don't understand all the ********. You were all listening to a TAMPA feed with TAMPA announcers. What was everyone expecting?

Pitts... I agree, and would also add that Tampa is trying to create a huge buzz about this team. The owners have been on a mission, so I wouldn't be surprised if they told the play by play guy to get a little more excited than he normall would for preseason.

Thanks bhaw - I was going to add that as well, but decided not to.

The use of EXTREME SARCASM has become commonplace on this messageboard and on "the other" Penguins board. This meme is especially predictable after unexpected losses .. and seems to be a "group-think" defensive/denial reaction .. an attempt to short-circuit, discredit, and "pre-empt" any legitimate expressions of concern or criticism by fans of the team. It's a masking-over of insecurity.

I find this to be very annoying and disappointing. It's a group-psychological cop-out. It's a ploy to avoid and to deny the reality and possible (or probable) significance of an unexpected loss. It's also a form of censorship and an Orwellian demand for lock-step "group-think" denial.

legitimate criticisms like ranting about how MT is somehow biased against Pesonen?

i was trying to figure out how to counter the prevailing 'extreme sarcasm' without being labeled an 'over-reactionary,' but you beat me to the punch with this year's new meme, "the professor's point." :twisted:

The reason they'll lose tonight is because you called The Thread by an incorrect, insulting name.
