I hope they handle plates better than they handle leads!

Enough. [DELETED ... Zero tolerance with that now. -- JC]
Why do you have to turn EVERY topic into your obsession with bashing the Komets?
Make-a-wish is a great organization and your comment is out of line.

As a komets fan I for one am glad to get a guy like Lyon in here he brings some physical style and toughness that we need but it would be nice to see us pick up a defensemen that is a physical stay at home guy who can drop the gloves if need be

Id be first one to attend, good public relations. Nothing beats what San Fran did for a 5 yr old. Off topic but on topic, Alan's comment must have flown over some heads. I personally saw the sarcasm in it right away, perhaps a_real_fan has just waited too long to find fault and jumped too soon and strong. Lol, I am entertained and can sleep now. Thanks everyone.

A Real Fan needs to be banned. What a joke. Everybody is entitled to an opinion or a joke that isn't offensive. You sir/ma'am, seem to think that you are entitled to regulate every comment made. This is JC's blog. He's the regulator. If you don't like a comment, ignore it. Or address it in a mature, respectful manner. This blog is a privilege. Don't ruin it for everyone. Alan's loooong posts are more offensive than his joke lol. Just kidding, Alan :)

My phone rang this morning, it was a friend (the infamous source) asking, "Have you read the blog this morning"? I hadn't, but at his insistence I got on-line while he was still on the phone. While I was reading, he was laughing at the response of a couple of bloggers.
First, NO ONE has more respect for Make-A-Wish than me. They are a terrific organization looking to bring happiness to those who are less fortunate. ( In fact, all charities need help and should be commended for the work they do).
Second, my comment had nothing to do with the organization. It was merely a JOKE equating the habit of dropping leads and the hazard of dropping plates. It was followed by a smiling emoticon to help those understand.
Third, this is to Justin. My only apology in this matter goes to you. Never did I think this would create a furor that would cause you to get involved. You've got lots of things to do other than to police comments.
For those who have come up with this idea regarding me "bashing" the Komets, I would strongly disagree. I have, and will strongly support the Komets, the Franke's and Gary Graham. That doesn't mean everyone gets a "free" pass. Where and when I think criticism is due, I will express it.
Jeremy, I appreciated your post. I'm going to disagree with you about banning A_Real_Fan. It's very evident that he and I don't agree with most anything. Still, he has a right to share his opinion. I also read your thought about my loooong posts (like this one). I know you were just kidding and I chuckled as I read it. Thanks for your support.
orange_koolaid2.0, you recognized the sarcasm immediately, didn't you? And you're clear out in California, right?

JC, can you please do something about this??? There is no need for this on this blog. You have two individuals that post nothing but garbage and not opinions everytime they post.

I apologise for quoting the offending commenter while making my point. I don't understand why you deleted my comment in Bosnian about closing doors?
Posted by Writes Right Shoots Left (290 posts) at 6:26 pm Tuesday
Yep, Alan, saw the sarcasm all the way in California. Southwestern most city too.
