[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.
