    Frankly, this is a good illustration of why someone would want out of Edmonton - one of thousands!  Not much to do there other than go to the mall (groan) or drink stubbies and make up salacious rumours about the Oilers, especially the guys with wives who have long, blonde hair. The things I used to hear about Wayne and Janet....

    By the end of July 2006, Pronger decided to speak out to deny that any sexual impropriety had taken place. "It's funny," he told Eric Stephens of the Los Angeles Times. "One rumour is I get some newscaster pregnant and all of a sudden she comes out and says, 'I don't know the guy.' Another girl comes out and says, 'I don't know the guy.' It's like a train that never ends."

    In mid-September, Pronger again addressed the rumours with The Journal's Jim Matheson, categorically denying all of them. "I've heard all the nasty stuff, about all my girlfriends ... that I've got more kids than I started with. I must have six kids out there."

     

    Hey Red, maybe you should pen a letter to Chris Pronger telling him how your feelings are hurt........

    I thought that came out a long time ago - that his wife was simply unhappy in Edmonton (can't say I blame her)

     



    A poor excuse in my book.  Was she unhappy with his paycheck?  

     

    How inconvenient that she has to be a millionaire housewife in a city with cold weather while he honors a contract for a few years, before retiring to anywhere they want in the world.  Boo hoo.




    Fletch, the rumour was that Pronger knocked up a reporter (not Red apparently) in Edmonton and that had much to do with why his wife was unhappy there.

    [/QUOTE]

    Oh good Lord. I'm friends with the reporter in question. She won a liable suit over that BS (it paid off her Student Loans). No veracity to that claim once-so-ever. It never happened and was proven as such in a court of law (techincally a prelim hearing).  Folks, stop, PLEASE, beleiving unsubstantiated BS. If you're going to disparage her, at least please have a clue as to who you're talking about. She's a combat vet, an experienced war correspondent, and a very experienced and an award winning sports reporter. Dez, honestly, I find posts like yours deeply offensive. You heard a rumour once, so you think that is basis enough to disparage someone you never met. Tell what you posted here to her face - she'd break your jaw, and deservedley so.

    Seriously, I respect most of you - but you're starting to sound like a bunch of shut-in-grandmothers. Do you have an aversion to the word "facts"?


     

    [/QUOTE]


    Apparently you missed the part where I called it a rumour. I also don't see where I disparaged anyone since I clearly didn't even speculate on who (aside from the Prongers) that the rumour was in reference to. It would seem to me that you are the only one that has even remotely identified the other party involved. You find what I said to be offensive? I guess I must be insensitive because I don't give a flying fokk if your feelings were hurt over it. Regarding the libel (liable) suit you speak of, I'll have you know it wasn't me she won it against as I have no idea who you're talking about. I sure hope the award winning jornalist/combat vet has thicker skin than you obviously do. As I've mentioned to you before, get your facts straight if you want to grease me out. The fact is that for someone with the resume you claim to have, you really sound like an idiot sometimes.

    Your spelling mistake was the least of my concerns but I'm sure you're well aware of it. You're a real class act. Maybe another threat regarding what your friend would do to me if they ever met me is in order...........Pathetic.

    Again, for someone who claims to be educated, your comprehension skills are seriously lacking. Nowhere did I spread any rumours about anyone. What I basically did was paraphrase Chris Pronger (as evidenced by the quote I provided). Nowhere did I even imply that it was in any way true nor did I even remotely speculate on the identity of the other party. You on the other hand, went out of your way to provide clues as to the identity of said party. I'm still confused why but I'm sure you've got your own messed up reasons. Frankly, I didn't expect an apology as that would've been too simple and involved some semblance of character. Keep clinging to the idea that you're right in sticking up for some perceived wrong but the fact remains that I didn't write a word in that post that was wrong and the proof is there for all to see. I'd like to think you're not an idiot in real life. You just play one on the forum.  Quick recap so there's no confusion....

    Dez-
    Fletch, the rumour was that Pronger knocked up a reporter (not Red apparently) in Edmonton and that had much to do with why his wife was unhappy there.

    Chris Pronger-

    By the end of July 2006, Pronger decided to speak out to deny that any sexual impropriety had taken place. "It's funny," he told Eric Stephens of the Los Angeles Times. "One rumour is I get some newscaster pregnant and all of a sudden she comes out and says, 'I don't know the guy.' Another girl comes out and says, 'I don't know the guy.'

    Red-
    Oh good Lord. I'm friends with the reporter in question. She won a liable suit over that BS (it paid off her Student Loans). No veracity to that claim once-so-ever.

    Seriously, I respect most of you - but you're starting to sound like a bunch of shut-in-grandmothers. Do you have an aversion to the word "facts"?

     

    It sure looks like you're the only one spreading rumours about some award winning journalist/combat veteran. I look forward to finding out exactly what I wrote that wasn't factual.

    Sigh. I'm just going to try and forget this conversation ever happened. That was the rumour, you are right - the rumour was a lie, and proven as such, but you still decided to repeat it - that's where you're in the wrong.

     Whatever, not responding on this topic again - better uses for my time than a message board fight.

    Saturday can't come soon enough.

    Of course you want to forget because you look like a fool. You claimed to be drunk to explain away your behavior and then you turn around and claim to have done nothing wrong. I suggest not starting fights if you don't have time for it but I suppose that seems too sensible though eh?  BTW, the person I was talking about mentions nothing about awards or being a combat vet in her bio but then I'm not surprised you'd decide to add straight out lies to the conversation while berating others for not being factual enough. PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!

    I'll end it by saying there was no fight until one of us started it. I had no intention of offending or upsetting anyone as I had no idea repeating something about Pronger (that he,himself said) would cause such a stir.  I apologize to you any anyone else who was offended.
