WhiskeySticks: Can't believe how the media reaction to this is pretty much, "meh".

If this had been the Yankees or the Packers, the media would have such a frenzy, the entire nation would come to a standstill whether the average person cared or not.


the KHL isn't exactly America's Pasttime

Just a little bit of "hey look what happened here..."

We all know how the media in America loves a good plane crash story.

And the KHL is a second-tier league in its sport. Best in Europe, but clearly a few steps behind the NHL in quality. It's the place to go for Europeans who can't quite hack it in the NHL, who don't want to spend a career as a third-liner, or for older, past-their-prime NHLers who want to extend their careers for a few more years.

It's not the Yankees or the Packers. The proper analogy to North American sports would be if some MLS team got wiped out.

Not to say this isn't tragic, because it is. It's just not surprising that it isn't topping the news broadcast in the US.

I can't decide if you're incredibly witty or a heartless bastard, but I'm definatly leaning towards the latter.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Welcome to Fark.

Euro media would probably give the same "meh" if an MLS team plane crashed, unless a guy like Beckham or Henry were on board.

As a not-really-a-hockey-fan who lives in Vancouver, I find this amusing.

not an expert, but i'm pretty sure it was gravity that defeated them, not the jets or flames. well, maybe the flames.

One of the Detroit based t-shirt companies I follow on FB is trying to get this logo on a shirt made and sold locally for Game 1 in Detroit. I'd love to own one and get the proceeds to go to a trust for some of these guys kids. I know they were professional athletes with good salaries but any support for kids is always a good thing. I know Salei just had a kid in the spring - awful thinking about it now.

Well, if it happened in the US or Canada, it would be a bigger deal. Plus, the type of plane they were on is considered so unsafe that the Russian government has ordered it to be phased out of service.

TeachingRoland: TeachingRoland: Wow, that`s terrible.

On a lighter note, I created a Rotisserie Yahoo Hockey Pool for Farkers

Lazymans hockey pool (new window)

Password is: fark It's a good format with no benched players so that you don't have to be changing your roster spots every day.

Sorry for the shameless plug, :(

Anyway, RIP KHL players. Is anyone else watching the Sidney Crosby press conference?

That's embarrassing, I think I accidentally the first link.

17 of the 20 spots are filled, so join ASAP if you are interested. It is going to be an excellent pool

or

"Hockey 2009 in my butt"
 
2011-09-07 09:26:56 PM  
Wow... I hadn't looked at the story before I saw the headline, it now makes more sense than it should and guarantees a first class ticket to hell for most of us. Subby gets a private jet with the plaything of his choice for it.

I'll join, perhaps with the team name The Singing Sharks.

It's been such a horrible summer for the hockey world, hopefully things start looking brighter, and soon.

I have no idea what I did drunkenly to a horse. I will admit that the 2011 playoffs were an alcohol fueled time for me to replace the missing Devils hockey that I had been spoiled with over the past decade+

On that note, we have 20 people so the league is full. Likely another will pop up for those who missed this one.

detroitdoesntsuckthatbad:

I see you've forgotten about the last 4+ years of hockey threads - most every farker w/o a reason to suck on the Penguins c*ck call him that. This is one day that I wouldn't mind him keeping his mouth shut and letting the hockey community mourn without him AW'ing about his headaches.

I'm a Canucks' fan. I've never called Crosby Cindy or any other childish name. Grow the fark up, 12 year old.

I forgot what a perfect gentleman you were in the playoff threads last season. Newsflash: fans often given opposing players derogatory nicknames. Who gives a fark?



Yeah, when he was calling the hit on Nathan Horton "clean", and then saying that Burrows was defending himself, he lost all cred.

For the last goddamned time, I never said the hit on Horton was clean. In fact, I said many times I had no problems with the suspension from that hit. Go look up the threads. They're still in the archives.

Um... something about "accidental strangulation". The supposition was that he may have Carradine'd himself.
