ML31'S ACTIVITY
 

ML31 commented on New Stanley Cup Playoff format. Yay or Nay?
Well...   All I can say to that is the western teams have lived with it from the beginning and thus far it hasn't seemed to have become any kind of issue.  I see no reason why the eastern teams can't have a piece of that too.... (see more)

ML31 commented on New Stanley Cup Playoff format. Yay or Nay?
The thing is, more than half the league is in the eastern time zone already.  The western conference already must endure long trips for playoff opponents.  The Canucks, for example, could very well have to play Nashville.  Hardly a quick... (see more)

ML31 commented on New Stanley Cup Playoff format. Yay or Nay?
Just not a fan of set brackets.  I feel teams should be rewarded with higher finishes with matchups with the lower seeded teams.  One upset throws it all out of whack. Also, I recall back when the playoffs were division based, I just got... (see more)

New Stanley Cup Playoff format. Yay or Nay?
The NHL has gone a little NBA on us.  They have abandoned the idea that the lowest remaining seed always plays the highest remaining seed in their post season tournament.  Instead going back to a more division based format similar to what...

ML31 commented on Breaking: Potential buyers of Oakland A's include Golden State Warriors owner
Was about to say the same.  This really is not news.   And as has been pointed out, Fisher has already fielded inquiries about potential sale of the A's.   I know Oakland has been trying to push the Howard Terminal site... (see more)

ML31 commented on Miami owner Beckham wants MLS to loosen salary cap restrictions
The salary structure in MLS is good.  We do not want MLS to become like the other top football leagues of the world where there are only a few teams who truly compete for the top spots while most of the rest are simply playing to avoid... (see more)

ML31 commented on Anaheim Ducks looking to dominate Edmonton Oilers
Soooo....  How'd that Oiler game work out for the Ducks?

ML31 commented on Who deserves to be in the HOF more?
Not at all.  Just that Rose knew the anti gambling rules and knew the penalties.  What McGwire publicly admitted to taking was not against the rules at the time and if he covertly took items on the banned substance list, there was no MLB... (see more)

ML31 commented on NJ Devils coach Pete DeBoer says NHL playoffs are unfair due to the schedule
I've said the set up was ridiculous from day one.  I still say the NHL needs to go with 3 10 team divisions.  4 games against the other 9 teams in your divisions.  Home and home against the other 20.  That makes for a 76 game... (see more)

OK.  Then make that, "...like everything else I have seen that Michael Bay has directed..."

ML31 commented on Who deserves to be in the HOF more?
No brainer.   Pete wantonly broke a known rule that he was keenly aware of.  McGwire never broke any of baseball's rules.  Therefore, he deserves the hall infinitely more than Rose does.

Transformers, like everything else Michael Bay directed, was just irritating noise.  That's right.  I said it.

ML31 commented on Sharks still fresh from last time they had Ducks over
This is about as big as a regular season game can get.  First place is on the line but in the NHL...  So what?  Barring the greatest sports catastrophe ever both teams are going to the playoffs.  Essentially all the teams are... (see more)

If the Giants ever get a shot at starting the season overseas I just might see if I can find my way to where ever it is they open.

ML31 commented on Not What It Once Was: The Rivalry Between the Penguins and Capitals
If a rivalry is not what it once was then it was never a true rivalry to begin with.  Two teams that are good for a short time who meet a lot can create a little heat for the time being.  But that is a far cry from an honest to goodness... (see more)

ML31 commented on The MLS is catching up to other sports in popularity
I saw that report last week.  However I think that says a whole lot more about the downward spiral of MLB that it does about the rise of MLS.  And I say that as a tremendous supporter of the MLS.  I even volunteer for the Earthquakes.

ML31 commented on NHL general managers set to talk about overtime changes at March meeting
First of all...  The playoff field in the NHL is so very huge that changes to the regular season really don't matter much.  The best teams still all get in along with a number of mediocre ones.  I abhorred the shootout but tolerated... (see more)

The Atlanta Thrashers are not defunct.  They are still surviving as the new Winnipeg Jets.

The Colorado Rockies are not defunct.  They are alive and well as the New Jersey Devils today.

ML31 commented on San Jose Sharks looking to get Devin Setoguchi back in the team
While it would be nice to get "Gooch" back, I am generally opposed to player rentals unless they are dirt cheap.  In this case, the Sharks would need to move salary to make this happen.  Not sure it is worth it for a rental. ... (see more)

ML31 commented on Astros prospect Jon Singleton details his marijuana 'addiction'
Just because something is legal (or in this case, soon to be legal) doesn't make addiction to it impossible.  There are people who can't go a day without their beer or shot of booze.

ML31 commented on Buster Olney wants people to stop calling Derek Jeter overrated
Yankee fans in general seem to view Jeter is being better than he really is.  I've even heard some put him up there with Ruth and Gherig.  Must be something in the water.  When Yankee supporters begin viewing him as the very good but... (see more)

ML31 commented on Wow! What a day of sports! And the Oscars as well
Since BC place covered the opening in their roof I'm pretty sure that makes it a standard indoor game.  Just as if they were playing the game next door. Sort of defeats the purpose.  (Yes, I know it was raining but still...)
