It is way too nice outside for me to be doing this. Therefore, it's going to be quick.
This is a black day for the Flames.
We have been busy and unable to get in front of a radio; Has the FAN960 been doing the organizational dick-suck all afternoon?
This is fucking retarded. Fucking retarded.
Curtis Glencross was signed for four years, and given a NMC.
Read that sentence. That's real, that really happened. We signed a guy at market rate, gave him huge term, and gave him an NMC to boot.
Good for Glencross. Good for the agent of Curtis Glencross. Take every crumb on the table, you know?
The guy who signed Curtis Glencross, however, is an idiot. Right? Who isn't this obvious, too?
Fuck, where to begin. First off, Curtis Glencross is the big trophy they choose to roll out with Feaster? What a joke. Let's be real: Glencross is a third line player. Wow, we are so distracted by that shiny bauble. It isn't a coincidence that the news 'breaks' at the same time.
The Feaster hiring is shitty. Signifies Ken King is still firmly in charge of the organization. That...isn't good. Quick illustration of why: You will notice that instead of hiring some more brains into the organization to assist Feaster, the organization instead intends to develop Craig Conroy. Do you get it? Ken King is not allowing the organization to hire credible, independent people into the leadership and management ranks. Do you get it? Ken King wants to keep the organization bodunk and dumb because that way he gets to yield power and influence. Do you get it?
(Which probably goes a long way in explaining the Feaster hiring in the first place. If Feaster is smart he brings in Goulet or someone from his stable of contacts to be the AGM, not someone who is connected to Ken King.)
Honestly, Feaster claims he thinks he had the job for at least two weeks, yet still allowed the organization to publicly allow him to twist in the wind, what with his 'Acting' title. Desperate for a job, or what? Look, it's a tough economy out their, but really.
Do we have to give Tanguay four years and a NMC too now?
How fucking dumb. The problem with the team is that it has little flexibility with the players, the key players, on the roster. All the cogs have NMC or NTC clauses. So if they want to go Country Club, they can. You could probably live with that too; Darryl Sutter's problem was that he gave out NMC's and NTC's to support players, like Bourque and Sarich. And Stajan.
And then the first thing that Darryl's replacement does? He gives one to Glencross. You can't make this shit up.
And Tod Button still has a job! Fucking cockroach.
More shit that pisses us off. This is a quote from Feaster, from Calgaryflames.com: "We want to get back to that identity of being a very, very hard working team. A very difficult team to play against."
Fuck this squirrel shit, for reals, yo. First, what Feaster said doesn't mean anything, and second, the last time the Flames were a hard team to play against was the last time they regularly used AHLers in the lineup, in 2004. So whatever. We just hope we don't end up signing more Dancing Bears in the name of Toughness. (Although...)
Honestly, it's too much. We just saw that on Twitter the official NHL thang (@NHLFlames) is retweeting people saying that we are 'championship bound' for next season. They honestly believe you, the consumer, are that fucking stupid.
These people, the people who think we are 'championship bound' (we would link the tweet but we don't know how, being luddites and all. If you know, please tell)? These people are the fucking mouth breathers that we talk about. Who the fuck, in their god-damned wildest dreams, thinks the Flames are championship bound next year?
These are the organizations 'useful idiots'. They provide the organization with cover and noise, and who knows, probably like the music they play at the Dome. And there just might be enough of these cover giving troglodyte's around, too. Hell, Rogers has been able to pass Peter Loubardias off as a play by play guy in this city for two years now. And Peter Loubardias is the pussy anal wart of sports commentary.
But fuck, how fucking stupid. And the organization looks like it is being run by 12 years old when it retweets such nonsense. If these are the best marketing ideas they can come up with, then Ken King really should be fired.
Fuck, we can't. We are out. We will think about this whole fucked up situation and try to come up with something more poignant for another date. It is fucking nice out.
Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
