If Al Sobotka's twirling of the octopus is so wrong...

,,,And the clueless asshats at NHL league HQ now say it is...

I don't wanna be right!

If the NHL is intent on pissing off a one of their more passionate fanbases, they are doing a damn fine job of it.

Keeping the Red Wings in eastern time zone exile by leaving them in the Western Conference, never playing Original 6 teams, the instigator penalty essentially eliminating fighting, having a cable network no one can find on their system as the main carrier of hockey in the US, the insanely stupid lockout and countless other fuckups has made hockey a niche sport, even in cities like Detroit!

Now the NHL powers that be are dissing the tradition of the octopus? As the Chief at A2Y so aptly says...

"Thanks, Gary...Ass."


  1. Gary Bettman is the worst commissioner in the history of sport. Fuck him up his stupid ass.

  2. Be honest with you, I really never came back to the NHL after the lockout. But even then, this pisses me off.

    we all know in the future, all professional sports will be played by robots. But the leagues seem to be rushing the matter by taking all the emotion out of it.

  3. This shows how disconnected from fans the NHL has become. I traced this story's break out time and has nothing. No fan input or outlet on this issue at all. I'd love to see a poll taken. In fact next TV contract the NHL gets ready to sign should get a poll too. Maybe then I can watch more the just the Cup finals and 1 game per week, starting in April (on NBC).
