@irfgaffar on Toffoli/Markstrom: They've made it a priority that they went to get these 2 guys in. Toffoli has expressed interest in being in Vancouver & playing with Pettersson. Pettersson has talked to Benning about having him in the room. 4.8 for 4 years could get deal done

Will Irfaan Gaffar catch some flack?
Of course not. :crazy:
This doesn't link to Irf Mick. I get SportsNet650?
Do you think I forged it? I heard he's not affiliated with SN anymore but the tweet is what it is.
Ah, there it is!

I missed the @IrfGaffar there somehow :lol:

I think SN handed Irf's spot to Randip for some reason. I'm not sure what happened there.

Not sure if this fits here but what’s up with these Superfan fan YouTubers?

Does anyone watch any of them?

I stumbled across a screaming Toronto Superfan the day they lost to the Zamboni driver that works for them and had a moderate laugh.

Too bad he’s a leafer.

Anyway got me thinking. What do we know about these dudes?

Which ones are worth watching any know?

I initially subscribed for Botchford's post-game pieces. Didn't always agree with him, but he was better than the seal-clapping bunch elsewhere. Dayal, Drance and Arndt are not the same kettle of fish but they're alright.

That and Seahawk coverage and it's not bad for $40/year.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

Who pays $40 per month. I did the entire year less than that.

Even though I have linked to a couple of their articles, I have-not/would-not subscribe.

Others summarize/quote/refer-to articles and I brought that info here once or twice.

Also, there are ways to get some of the articles for free if one is so inclined.


Why isn't Micky admitting to being a subscriber?

It just makes him feel better when he gets to use extreme hyperbole. Let him pick at his diaper in peace.

Doyle - what’s your tab at the Arms up to now? Once a patron at my Dads establishment pulled off an armed robbery to pay off his tab which was in the $1,000’s. You must be getting close to that?

Lol I don’t run a tab there. They haven’t run tabs for years. One guy fucked it up for everyone. He’s now barred for life.

40 a month? Holy crapolla! Drance doesn't like you I guess. He must have quoted you on the all encompassing sports deal if there is one.
I just bought a trial on Hockey only about 19 months ago for 30 bucks and I still get the official new one every week-day morning.
I've got to the point I just skim thru quickly to get to the end to press my meh. :lol:

So Doc.. I saw that quoting yesterday. Your saying no more PW? Not that it matters , meh.

pay wall
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Okay... PW = paywall... thanks Topper.

Not sure why you would think there's not a paywall at theathletic.com any longer Mick.


EDIT: If you're wondering about the very brief snip/summary of the article I provided, I found that at another site.

(brief snip/summaries are allowed if the source is cited)
