    New York Islanders New Third Uniform Leaks

    Not for the fanbase. The Gorton's Fisherman is kind of reviled. Bad memories of "We want fishsticks" chants.

    New York Islanders New Third Uniform Leaks

    At least the Isles alternate isn't black or the Gorton's Fisherman so I guess it's a win.

    2018 MLB Season

    Not a Mets fan but read the New York papers and listen to New York sports radio daily. I don't remember there being anything near the level of consternation Cubs fan media types in the New York media. There were articles in the papers and it was probably mentioned on the radio but it didn't last long, maybe a day or so. I actually forgot about the comments until I read an article in the Scum Times yesterday rehashing it. By the end of 2015, the biggest story with Murphy was his craptastic defense in the World Series.

    I hear the alternate logo is Stephen F. Austin with an axe chopping the heart out of Columbus like George Washington and the cherry tree.

    You mean a few small airports like this one that I go through semi-regularly.

    There are Kings in both the NBA and NHL who play in the same state and will need Warriors to figure out who reigns supreme while the clan of Royals is over in Kansas City.
  9. Sure he will if he decides he wants to visit the place though he can pay the admission fee like all the rest of us.
  10. What are these playoffs of which you speak?
  11. I remember how Neil Smith was our GM for forty days then left to be replaced by the effing backup goalie.
  12. The arena situation also goes back to Wang's ineptitude, greed, and inability to navigate the political process in Nassau County. Wang hired Snow after the forty days of Neil Smith. The team was run like a country club for the last close to twenty years. Malkin and Ledecly were minority owners for two years before taking over as majority owners at the beginning of last year and should have done their due diligence on Snow, and fired him the day they took over. I was excited, for the first time in a very long time rooting for this team with the hire of Lamoriello, and over the moon when they brought Trotz on board...only to be kicked in the nuts again with Tavares leaving. They're going to have a lot of work to do. Before them coming I fully expected Tavares to walk, and at this point, I wouldn't be shocked if Trotz, Lamoriello or both walked away post-haste. It's the Islander way. Unlike the majority of Islander fans, my anger is directed solely at Wang, Snow, and to a slightly lesser extent Malkin. They sat by and did nothing to improve the team, improve the culture around the team or improve management until it was too late. Malkin waited until the last minute to make changes that should have been made last year. If I was Tavares' agent I would have handled his impending UFA the same way (no extension a year early) no benefit of the doubt, and no hometown discount. I don't begrudge him leaving I think he reached his breaking point and I don't blame him one bit. I just hope Lou/Trotz are still here when the new building opens but I'm taking a step back in my Isles fandom until I see some proof the on-ice product is improving.
  13. Charles Wang and Garth Snow are like the clap, the gift that keeps on giving. I hope Garth chokes on a chicken sandwich. A big efffffffff you to Scott Malkin too because though you brought in Lou and Trotz last month, you should have changed management LAST YEAR when you took over full ownership. Too little too late.
  14. Being an Islander fan is like being repeatedly kicked in the nuts, recovering from that kick, then being kicked in the nuts again but harder than before. Two steps forward, fifty steps back, that's the Islander way. We've since learned that Scott Malkin is the one with the control of the team. Ledecky was just a cheerleader to take abuse from fans riding in on the LIRR.

    Much in the same way that the rumors the Mets are a Major League Baseball franchise were also greatly exaggerated.
