    [QUOTE]Wow, this thread has legs.  I guess I'll chime in my 2 cents too. TT can say and post what he wants to about Chick-fil-a.  Although, quoting hellfire and brimstone type believers is probably not the best idea for him given his track record..  It kind of makes him seem like he's looking for attention.
    Posted by bim09[/QUOTE]

    I've heard this before.  What does "looking for attention" mean?  The guy has thousands of followers on his FB.  He has a strong opinion on a subject.  He said what he needed to say and walked away from the mic.

    Neglected girlfriends do stupid things to "get attention" from their boyfriends.  How is this similar?

    Ahhhhh.....Bruins fans. So diverse! That's what makes us so great.

    Why do we need a Gay Pride Parade? Isn't there a better way to get the point across?

    Do you really think TT was tolerated in the dressing room?

    Whose legit frustration? 

    Just making the observation about how intolerant you are to the religious community.   A little shocked that is coming as a big surprise to you after that post.

    While everyone was yelling at their computers, Ernesto shared the most relevant aspect of this. It's worth repeating:

    "He isn't playing next year, which means he's not my teammate," a Bruins player who wished to be anonymous told WEEI.com. "Which means I don't have to react to his Facebook posts."

    His own teammates have moved on. So should we.

    Posted by Not-A-Shot[/QUOTE]

    We see what he's saying and we think it's legit.
    Thomas hasn't done any interviews or answered questions.
    He just throws out a one liner here and there and goes into hiding.

    If he makes a statement we think he should explain himself, be available for followup questions and etc.

    We would like to know how you would describe someone who posts comments and has everyone on ignore.

    I think that was Chara who said that.

    His team mates have moved on, but management is stuck with him.

    And for the billionth time, I'd like to drop all of this talk that doens't have to do with his trade value or what management can do with with him.

    how many pages would we be up to, if TT posted "I disagree with the CEO of chick-fil-a"?  

    As for Menino, exactly how would he be able to deny the restaurant access to the Boston market?    To me, there is something more sleazy, self serving  and dishonest in the Mayors well thought journey to the soap box.

    What continues to amaze me, is that Thomas makes these comments once and a while, that actually mirror the thoughts of many, many North Americans.  He's really not even into the good stuff, just generic crap that a great percentage of the population rail about every day.  Why are so many here reacting like they just learned there really is no Santa Claus.
    I'm betting there are hundreds of NHLers who are also against same sex marriage.  So what?

    We?  We?  Are you using WE?  Don't you know you don't speak for everyone?  We?  No no no no no no!  Not we! 

    He doesn't have to explain himself.  On Facebook, people have chosen to follow his thoughts.  He, just like everyone else on Facebook, has the option to post thoughts and ideas.  He did.  It's not called "Question-and-answer-FB.com". 

    He didn't call a press conference and then walk away.  He used a social networking tool to get his thoughts out.

    The minority can show all the intolerance they want to the majority these days.  The last 20 years of this country have seen an amazing amount of freedom given to the minorities, mostly at the expense of the majority.

    Well said. My wife and I were talking the other day about finances and while we have 4 kids, three of them girls, I was wondering If my son should go the private school route, hopefully a good college etc..Cause by the time he hits the real world, as a white male it is going to be tough for him to get a good job.

    First, I am not using "we", we are using "we."

    Thomas is a public figure.  He is a sports figure.  He has renegged on his contract.  He has made political statements via an outlet available to the public.

    People are curious about his statements and actions and are asking questions.

    I understand why.  People are curious by nature.  They want to know about their public figures.

    Most people, but not you.  You could give a rats ash.  And that's fine.  But is sure seems to me that you want everyone else to think the same way.


    And all of this has as much to do with hockey as much as what Red, Kels, Dez and you do in your bedrooms, although in at least one case I'm sure it's sleeping and nothing else.

    The hockey issues are;
    are these statements (right, wrong, indifferent, controversial or whatever) hurting any potential trade value or his value in the NHL?

    Is he tryng to hurt his value? (intentionally or not)  His mental state IS relevant to that value.

    Or what the heck can management do with him?

    I've tried to bring this back to hockey several times already and it seems that people are hell bent on taking it in other directions.

    Ouch !  Really ? 
    Don't like the sound of this, not knocking you, just astonished .
    As for TT on facebook who cares what he posts, it's only for the people that follow him on FB.
    Thomas not playing and occupying cap space next year though does bother me but this has been said to death.

    Oh definetly. I'm not trying to sound ignorant, just being realistic, from what I've experienced and heard. I have a good friend whose job it is to find qualified emplyees for cooperations.
    I'm going to go back to talking about more hockey related posts, but if your or anyone else would like an example I'll gladly post it in this thread. I think you'll be more astonished by that.
