    I don't follow anybody on twitter because I think it's ridiculous & the only people I have on my fb are actual people that I know. I DO however still wish TT would just shut-up!

    Yawn......who cares what he thinks?  What about his views on china patterns or taste in internet porn? Nothing he says or posts on Twitter will ultimately have any real and tangible effect on our lives by any stretch of the imagination.

    It will soon be Nashville's problem anyway.....right JuniorFalcon?Wink

    Goodbye Timmy. Have a nice life.

    [QUOTE]People here love to talk about NHL 24/7.  I've never watched it.  I don't have interest in what players do off the ice in respect to conversations, likes, dislikes etc.  Sure, I'm interested when they get arrested.  That's actual news.  The rest of this stuff is a product of society.  If this was 25 years ago and Ray Bourque had the same opinions and a Facebook page, I wouldn't want to know what he thought about marriage either. Bunch of hypocrites.  You all want Thomas to shut up, but you all want to get the inside scoop on everything.  You follow these guys on Facebook and on Twitter and are interested in their day to day lives and thoughts, yet when someone says something you disagree with, or more importantly, the liberal media disagrees with, it blows up a car in Vancouver after a preseason, intra-team loss. Can't have it both ways, folks.  You can't ask a group to talk to you and then be super upset when someone from the group says something you don't like.

    I don't have a facebook account and at one time had twitter linked to my email for the journalists to get news on trades etc., but that broke down.

    As far as the conversations go, I'm just interested in what effects what happens on the ice.

    Example: they had the Rangers mic'd up and they were goofing out there against the Fliers and laughing it up saying they were going to start a line brawl and who would take who.
    They gave up a goal right when they did that.
    Showed me that they were unprofessional out there, lost focus, lost concentration and paid for it.
    Watching that play without hearing the players I wouldn't fully understand what happened, soft goals just happen sometimes.
    I had no idea they could be that immature, call me naive.

    I'm interested in the stuff relevant to hockey.

    I think, or rather, what we think is that it provides insight as to what they mean by team leaders.  I would imagine a respected vet might have straightened them out right there and might have told them, 'hey, shutup and pay attention, we haven't won this thing yet.'

    What they had for dinner and if they show up somewhat drunk at mandatory events and all the rest I don't care about nor pay much attention to.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Tim Thomas Had a one liner today on his face book : What a crock -"DIFFERENT VIEWS"  you really mean YOUR views And even more amazingly than that, it's people like you who really get to decide what is acceptable and what is not... because you are in essence stating what everyone should accept based on YOUR own views. If YOU decide to support gay marriage then anybody who disagrees gets attacked for taking such an absurd position - in YOUR view TT the nutjob believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman - right? You think gay marriage should be recognized by the Government- right? How about Polygamy? How about sharia law? Don't like those?  Why not? What's the difference beside the fact that YOU have decided what is acceptable. Then ... what YOU are really saying is that You know what's best for everybody else, and YOU will attack anybody who disagrees with what YOU feel is your enlightened position. It's not any high moral ground you're choosing- it's really about YOU telling everybody how to live based on YOUR own beliefs. You don't want to  "co-exist" with someone like TT- you want him to conform to what you arrogantly believe is best for everybody else.
    Posted by JWensink[/QUOTE]



    This really isn't a complicated situation: If you want to deny two consenting adults from spending their lives together and deny them the same benefits the government provides to opposite-sex couples, you need to make a rational argument for doing so.

    Unfortunately, the only arguments I hear from the anti-gay marriage "nut-jobs" are irrational:

    1) My god says it is bad
    2) We've never recognized gay marriage before, so we shouldn't start now 

    (Feel free to add to this list if you think i've missed something)

    I have no problem with polygamy either, Why? because again, I haven't heard anyone make a rational argument for why polygamy is bad. If you want to make that argument, go for it. But until you make an argument that shows how gay people or polygamists are hurting the rest of us that is explainable in terms other than:

    1) My god says it is bad
    2) We've never recognized polygamists before, so we shouldn't start now 

    Then I'm sorry, you don't have my support.

    Sharia law, however, is a totally different ball-game.  There are good reasons to believe that not only is it immoral and unethical, but it isn't compatible with our constitution because it encorporates religion into public affairs.  

    Just to cherry pick a few things here, women are given nothing if they get divorced, women can be stoned to death for committing adultery, women are often accused of dressing too provacatively after they've been raped. I could go on and on. (i'm not an expert on sharia law, but everything I've read is effffed, I think the argument against sharia law is pretty air-tight.)


    but anyways, our secular government is based on this principle: If you want to control how people live, you need to show a good reason for it that is explainable in terms outside your religious doctrines.

    Let's stick to the topic. TT never said he was anti-gay. He said he agreed with a view that they shouldn't be allowed to marry. There's a huge difference.

    Spot on, BH.  His views don't effect the Bruins in the W and L columns as there is no proof of him being distracted while playing.  If it was his intention to not fulfill his contractual obligation to the Bruins thus leaving his salary still on the books for management to have to account for in any roster dealings I hope Chiarelli can one day get something of benefit to the team in return for a two-time Vezina and Conn Smythe Trophy winning goaltender in his late thirties.

    What the hell... ugh... have to start again...

    What is wrong with you people?

    I don't understand why somebody's political / cultural / religious beliefs has to do with ANYTHING that pertains to HOCKEY!

    He was (and is) a great goaltender!  He helped bring us a Stanley Cup!  You don't need to drink tea and smoke cigars with the guy!  What does it matter if his beliefs differ from yours?  All he was for us is an NHL GOALTENDER!  Please, justify your own existences somewhere else.  

    Edit:  For the record I feel I must state I don't agree with him, at all.  But whatever.  I don't like Tim Thomas because we're bff's... I like him because he has some sick moves in the crease, and that's all.  

    So cry about his beliefs all you want, but that won't stop him from stuffing one of the Sedin Twins in the face or chopping down Flopping Burrows.

    Don't invite him to your church /pampered Chef Party / Whatever... but please, don't discount all the relevence he has brought to YOUR Boston Bruins because you think he's misguided in his ideals.

    End of story.

    I just get fed up with the sensitivity of our nation, towards everything and every comment made. Freedom of speech is part of our foundation and anyone can say what ever they want, whether you agree with it or not. But everyone cries about too much in this country, bunch babies most of us are. So chick filet takes a stand against something for their own beliefs. SO WHAT. How should their comment really affect anyones lives. Its a comment, big deal. Like I said, you dont have to agree with it. People just need to grow some skin.
    I by no means am sticking up for Chick filet, but its their belief and they have that right to express it.

    49 thinks her view is "inclusive" because it is. In its essence, she's saying there's room for everyone, despite diverse points of view. She has drawn no line.

    For you to say" The only reason you think your view is 'inclusive' is because it's your view" is stunning in that her point of view is shared by millions of people. You are in essence telling those millions what's right or what's wrong when you question 49's/their points of view about inclusiveness—and that's what you accuse 49 of.

    It all comes down to respecting the dignity and worth of each individual, as well as something Christ once said: "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."

    The difference between liberals and conservatives is this: 

    A liberal will say "This is my opinion on gay marriage/religion/abortion/whatever. If you feel differently, that's okay because we're all free to follow our own beliefs and do what we feel is right for ourselves as individuals."

    A conservative will say "This is my opinion on gay marriage/religion/abortion/whatever. I don't care if you feel differently because I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure that everyone has to live the way that *I* believe is correct - even if it means changing the Constitution because I'M RIGHT."

    WHICH one of those things sounds crazy and extreme??

    Personally, I don't care what Tim Thomas believes or says.  I'm just amazed at how quickly he has destroyed any amount of goodwill that this city ever had for him.

    I don't have a problem with TT voicing his opinions either -- regardless of how much I disagree with his opinions. However, I do have a problem with the cowardly way he expresses himself: posting on fb (like he's a 12 year old) and then feigning disgust at the invasion of his privacy on personal opinions. Keep your opinions to yourself if you want them to remain personal. This guy is obviously feeling out a run at political office. Whatta do uche.

    Nobody "asked". 

    Thomas has brought this upon himself by putting his views out there, front and centre.  He can believe whatever he wants, and he chose not to keep those beliefs to himself.  It's not like these things that TT believes have been extracted from an interrogation.  When he posts statements on his Facebook page, when he makes public statements, then he is inviting a response. He can't have it both ways -- he can't say things in a public forum, and not expect response. 

    In his heart, maybe he feels that his beliefs will make the world a better place.  I certainly hope that he's not doing things out of hatred or a need to p**s people off. 

    We all have different beliefs;  as long as they're legal, I have no beef -- my criticism with TT has always been the fact that his rants do not help the team, from a public relations point-of-view. 

    I could care less whether he supports the Tea Party or the Communist Party.  If he was on my team, I'd be concerned that he could potentially alienate a substantial portion of my fan base.  Perhaps that's not a big deal in a strong hockey market, but in a city where hockey is struggling for recognition (and hence, maybe that's why teams near the cap floor are hesitant to acquire him), it would be a big concern.
