In response to Chowdahkid-'s comment:
You were once the pissiest poster regarding repetitive posting about Thornton. What happened ?
This type of posting is no different then someone (marco/bruins8/any of his other characters) starting a million threads about Kessel ?
I see no difference. Do you ?
Oh, I'm still there. the time and number of threads dedicated to Thornton around here is utterly insane. It's gotten worse than the Seguin/Kessel threads.
And I don't mind having Thornton on the roster and playing on the 4th line, so I don't even agree with the premise of all the Thornton noise.
But to be perfectly honest, I had the same reaction as the OP watching the game last night. It did seem lame when Thornton just quits on the fight just because he has some advantage. I say fight to win, and if the other guy feels he is too vulnerable, he can just fall down. It did seem ridiculous. Rivalry game, Thornton is there to fight...he should fight. Let the refs and Fraser worry about Fraser.
But those are really 2 completely different topics Fletch. The OP was citing this particular incident as logic to once again decree ST has no place on this team.
There are all kinds of unflattering comments most would agree with about Sean Thornton, but, like most, I'm sick and tired of the same minority creating a new thread every other day as to why this guy obviously shouldn't be on the team. And damn poor logic backing up those rants.
Obviously you agree, so let it be known.
The incessant Kessel/Seguin threads have much more/better content.
As far as "lame", I understand your opinion. I believe that, however, is the "code" that gives him the respect from his peers. I think the fact he just got back from a 15 game suspension could very well have contributed to that exxagerated sense of pity. If he's not a bit sensitive to "hurting' someone right now, he's dumber than one could imagine.
