    If you're not able to run into a burning building, you shouldn't be a firefighter. If you're not able or willing to face getting shot at or blown up, you shouldn't be a soldier. If you're terrified of heights, you probably shouldn't be a roofer, high-rise steel worker or a sky-dive instructor...

    I get what you're saying, but I have to wholly reject this comparison. Joe Blow protester in the street not putting themselves in harm's way to physically stop violent protestors and/or looters is in no way equivalent to someone who's sworn & paid to uphold the law standing idly by while one of...

    Oh God, please make that happen. Ship Hughson & Simpson back to the west coast and let them call the late game on Saturday nights, and everyone will be the happier for it.

    Thing is, if you’re a “good cop” who stands idly by and doesn’t do anything about the “bad cops”, or even worse, you cover for their behaviour, you’re not actually a “good cop”.

    My interpretation of all this is that the cops are scared shitless right now. They see this outpouring of protest and the looming potential end of the Trump presidency as an existential threat to their jobs, unchecked power, total lack of accountability & massively inflated police budgets...

    Grit is great, but it’s useless in the modern NHL if it’s not accompanied by speed & skill. I guess the only caveat is that the NHL seems to operate under a completely different rule book once the playoffs start. But then again, maybe that rule book is only for the Bruins.

    Lafreniere would look pretty good in a Leaf jersey.

    Heh. Oh, Korean netizens. Awesome. That does bring up a memory, though. Does anyone else remember when angry Koreans flooded this forum (and most other forums based in North American) because they were furious about a short-track speed skating result in the Olympics?

    For all the plans the NHL’s been announcing, not much time has been dedicated to what’ll happen in the case of positive tests in the midst of competition.

    Definitely seems notable that Pence & his staff were the only high-level members of Trump’s entourage who stayed behind at the rose garden rather than joining him for his walk to the church. Still though, Pence has been a spineless sycophantic weasel to this point, so I find it difficult to...

    Yikes. That’s pretty much what I figured. Eugene is likely a die-hard Trump supporter.

    Looks like the Sens are hitting the headlines again. Yesterday, the Sens foundation—a separately run organization that’s affiliated with the Sens as their charitable arm in Ottawa—tweeted out this about George Floyd: The Ottawa Senators themselves have still, thus far, had nothing to say...

    Fitting that the only real wall this *******’s actually getting built is around his own fucking house.

    Yep. I’ll be honest, I probably went at least the first half of my life in blissful ignorance that black people getting stopped all the time by police for no discernible reason was a thing. In my entire life so far, that’s only happened to me one time. Being a white dude in this society really...
