    Honestly I don't mind Simpson at all. Guy has been around hockey at all levels for 25 years and he might be a bit of a douche he is still pretty well spoken, knows the game, funny (at times), little perverted, and he can tell a story. People just b*tch for the sake of it over at HF when really none of them have any idea wtf they are talking about.

    People do Wing Dang Doodle but he is a moron and rude. His resume (poor) doesn't make his arrogance justifiable, and he doesn't interview people well. Constantly interrupts and asks them comments, not questions.

    He is also a hypocrite and flip-flopper. Said on the radio that PK Subban's celebration was embarrassing, then said on OTR that he had no problem with it. Said Mike Smith was a hell of a goalie and deserved to make Team Canada, now this week he says he's garbage.

    They were so *fast* the waitresses had to wear rollerskates.

    Big Al only cooked fresh.

    I'm talking about Arnold, not Big Al. Back when they had a *real* 50s song as the theme.

    I think Arnold was Mr. Myagi's dad. He's the spittin' image.

    That's fairly accurate, but you didn't insert the phrase "as far as (insert situation)" which is pretty much his favourite.

    Agreed.

    While this is a rant forum id like to say ppl who claim things or make assumptions drives me nuts. "He's great in the room" "his teammates love him". PM does this all the time. Simpson doesn't and this is why appreciate his comments.

    Simpson often offers multiple possibilities in a situation or both sides. I also appreciate this.

    tim1_2 wrote:Yeah, that looks like a Simpson quote. He's good for radio, because he turns what would be a three second sentence into a two minute round-about brain baffler.

    If he and Pierre ever got into it, whoa, fillibuster time. This morning Pierre said "I only missed one game, ever, in my career. And that was the day that of my sister's wedding, the day mys sister got married to my brother-in -law." He went on a little, re-repeating things, but the part that really stuck out, for me, was the " ...to my brother-in-law".

    Now, if Simmer was there, he probably would have interrupted and asked, "Brother-in-law? Were they getting re-married or did you mean soon-to-be-brother-in-law?" And that would have sparked a whole other side story.

    These two guys don't know the meaning of dead air. They probably think it's something others in the room with them are suffering from.

    Naw man, I played D. Little bro was a goalie and that's how I learned by him being taught and me being on the ice. I couldn't play goal if my life was on the line.
