Kim Pegula returning next season- Kim Pegula

Recommended Posts

Are we sure about this?

Jason and all those others were told they were coming back next season right up until the second that they were told they were not coming back next season.

Even the mighty (not that Mighty) KP has to answer to someone.

Why not just ask me, rather than speculating.

You say not nefarious but not coincidence, suggesting there was some sort of agenda here.

Again, you could’ve asked nicely and I’d gladly answer this question.

But the continued skepticism in this thread alone leaves me wondering what it is this board actually wants:

Answers or the comfort of posting mere speculation in order to justify one’s smarts knowing they wouldn’t be called out on it.

Ive for one poster going on and on and on trying to convince either me or himself that they’re not asking me for sources (he is).

And then this.

If you cant figure out why I’m skeptical in regards to this board being welcoming, based on this thread alone, well I guess we’ll never know.

sheesh

I think a lot of us speculate based on the info we have. It's kinda like that bar conversation you have with friends but on the forum. That's why we're wrong sometimes because we can only draw conclusions on the info we have. Like the ROR trade for example, we've speculated a lot about was that a botterill or pegula decision and why did it occur.

I am not asking for your sources. I've tried to explain to you multiple times what I'm saying. If I wanted your sources, I would come out and say that. In response you've told me I'm dumb more or less. What a great conversation, I'd guess you think I'm some blue collar worker who isn't smart enough to comprehend your writing because I'm not educated enough. 

Don’t be so hard on yourself

And yet here you are complaining that this site is not worth the time?  Rather odd, but whatever.

Yeah I know one more shot in the dark,  just whistling in the wind and and hoping the mods wake up and realize the potential of the site. I mean listen to what a great writer is saying and not the ones who have kept away many who could contribute. I mean come on dude, he's correct, try and post something during the season that runs contrary to analytics and see what happens. Try and say that the Sabres are making a good move or playing well or anything basically positive and just watch the pack come after you. Embrace civility!

You should have tried being a critic of Terry on February 22, 2011. That was fun. You have to have a thick skin to post on a sports message board. If you can get through the abuse from little rocket men and hairy Korab men, you'll find most of the responses are crowd-sourcing challenges that make you improve your position. We had a trial and everything. His Honourable Judge Pheromonius Smell even ruled in my favor.

You guys laugh and are skeptical, but it's true.  Many of my posts are anti-analytics and positive.  No one ever attacked me for it, except for maybe a handful of not regular contributors, who I never pay any attention to anyway.

Here's where I am at.

You've been doing this long enough by now that you should learn how to ignore the few over the many.  Most people seek to condemn before they seek to understand.  It's easier to just dismiss and attack than it is to stop, contemplate, and inquire for more information. This problem is only magnified when it comes to the line of work you are in.

Now, your big problem is taking the posts of a few and lumping them together and constituting that as "the board". Imagine some of us looking at the disingenuous and ignorant articles and rants that your peers make and then just lumping you in with them.  Clearly it's not right. Do you want to be held to the standards you project or would you prefer I choose a random Buffalo media personality and just subscribe their standards to you?  I think the answer is clear.  Conversely, I think by lumping "the board" into the conversation you are asking for people to react, as they should.

What exacerbates the problem is how you choose to respond to those who doubt you. You do inflect a tone of superiority against the "lowly board members". By insulting the masses because of the few you force others into a position to either defend themselves from you or to somehow encourage you to stick around. Those who defend themselves add fuel to your fire of "being attacked en mass" and those who encourage you to stick around must do so, so vociferously, that it comes across with some level of idolization, or at the very least, a supplication to you in defense of some projected victimization that, at least to me, is not real.  Have people questioned you? Yes. Are they reflective of the masses? I don't think so.  

Don't disrespect the board by assuming we cannot all read the situation as it is unfolding. Your continuing insistence of a situation is no more, or less, than what you claim others are doing to you. The problem is that you keep referring to the board as being party to these actions when, in fact, it's only a few. I think it's clear why people get upset over that.

It should also be noted the poster in question got an official warning from a Mod, so it's not like it went by unnoticed/the mods are facilitating that kind of argument, to be fair to the mods. 

The incident in question, a poster was told to "eff off" by an individual after a moderate personal insult towards said individual. Wrong response, but what triggered it surely isn't part of a welcome atmosphere the poster in question seeks.

Kim went to the manager's office and Terry went to the back room to watch security footage of how the coffee was brewed.

It is franchise.  I've heard they like to do things their own way.

Not time for TimHo's, they have to focus on the Pegula kiddies overpriced smoothie and salad place around the corner from Tim's.  Can't let it fail.  Have to find a way to keep the kids busy.

Realistically, in uncertain times you jettison the things that are peripheral and not needed so you have time to focus on your core. I'd strongly guess the Pegulas aren't planning on creating a franchise fast-food empire, and the shop wasn't making enough money (with minimal traffic downtown) to be worth the trouble.

^  We have little room for this kind of logic here.
