    Alleged 1980's hash dealer to run for leadership of Ontario PC party

    BBJ, please tell me you are trolling. You HAVE to be trolling. I work with umpteen ultra-conservative Construction dudes who read the Sun as their Bible. Big Rob Ford fans. Right in their demographic. Even they were making fun of him at lunch yesterday. But wait! Rob Ford says it is a...

    Ex-Leafs GM Brian Burke sues online commenters - TRIBE be warned !!!

    @klubmastawill: As a lawyer, I was wondering if you would be able to answer this question. When I heard about this, and then the subsequent idea that the ISP was perhaps going to release the names of the individuals (if told to do so by court order), I just wondered how prevalent this actually...

    NHL 2012-2013 Thread

    @tripleup: Interesting. I would have to say I vehemently disagree. First off, I would say that his being the "UFA steal of the year` might be a stretch. If that is the case, it might be a result of the fact the UFA pool was slim at best. `Hardest working defensive players in the game`...

    NHL 2012-2013 Thread

    So funny how in one instance, we speak of a stellar organization like the Pens, and all the smart moves they have made. Then you get Carolina. What a ridiculous contract. Even a casual observer can see he won't fulfill the terms of this contract. He is a one, maybe two, year term guy. I...

    Toronto Maple Leafs 2012-2013

    I guess I would be on both sides of this argument. RVGD, I think even you would agree that the corporate presence in Toronto surpasses that of basically every NHL city. This is just due to the popularity of the sport in Toronto. While other cities certainly rely on corporate sponsorship and...

    Nfl 2012 - 2013

    The tactics didn't concern me as much as they did for you. HOWEVER, I personally think it was a gross error in time management. As they had the ball on the 5 there, I was texting my buddy, telling them to use their timeouts and hurry the heck up, lest they (worst case scenario) don't score...

    Globalization & Quinoa

    :):):) Awesome. I was reading through hoping someone was going to say this.

    Haha...Well, I am a Browns fan, so I think it could read like that for sure. To be honest, if he had have come to the Browns, however, I would have had the same reservations. I would have been happy, but not so much for the coach. More for the fact that for once someone chose the browns. Lets...

    :D As to your other points, obviously time will bear it out, but I really think he was incredibly helped by the disparity of talent between himself and the competition. I watched quite a few Oregon games as well this year, and was at the Fiesta Bowl live. Were it not for the fact that Colin...

    Gonzo, as an Eagles fan, are you actually happy about that? I don't know. I would be a bit wary of taking him as a Head Coach, given that he has never done the job before. One could say you can't argue with 46-7, but I will. It is going to be an eye-opener coaching players that are not light...

    That's awesome! Apparently it is a fantastic time...Grown men literally crying tears of joy when their guy gets picked. My buddy was at the 2007 draft and said he couldn't believe the emotions when the Brownies drafted Joe Thomas and then traded up for what (at the time) they thought was going...

    Team Buy nightmares?

    I think it is pretty clear that Groupon can work. New eyeballs, new asses in the seats, new customers. If I were starting a new business, and I was worth my salt, I would 100 per cent sign up for it. I (and apparently Bacchus as well) was just astounded to find that restaurant owners were so...

    Team Buy nightmares?

    I think, westside, you have hit the nail on the head here. My wife and I have had a couple great experiences with Groupon, including getting 200 dollars of great meat from a local butcher for 80 bucks. The service and cuts from this butcher were amazing, so we now go to them frequently...

    Don't know if you guys saw when Ray was shown with his hand all cut up and bloody on the sideline yesterday. It was no big deal though, because Ray is used to having blood on his hands! BUUUUURRRRRNNNN! Seriously though, how much air time do they give that murderer. I am biased, but I can't...
