Re: Look who’s getting a tryout with the Grifs

I was kidding about the wings bringing him up. There’s no way they would bring him up especially when they think he’s so bad they’ll pay him to not be part of the team.

Re: Red Wings Claim Gemel Smith - Givani's Brother

You may be right. I could have sworn that I remember an instance of a player being picked up by one team, then waived shortly after, and picked up by another team. ... didn't that happen to us and some minor league goalie? I think the rule is that a waiver claim must be rostered on the big club for...

Re: Red Wings Claim Gemel Smith - Givani's Brother

Givani would have to clear waivers, so he's not getting sent down. This is a depth move. Gemel will be sent to GR. Or, do they still do that COVID purgatory thing? Put him there instead of Rowney. If you claim someone off waivers don’t they have have to be with the big club for at least 30 days? Yo...

Who gets sent to GR? Would be funny if they sent Givani down

Good question. Also what does it mean for Blashill? I can hear 31 other teams crying that it’s not fair.

Re: NYT Buys The Athletic

No doubt in my mind The NY Times will jack this up and shove its unsolicited political opinions into the Athletic. Everything and everyone is political now. Sports was supposed to be an escape from that, but not anymore. News reporting was supposed to be unbiased reporting of the facts, not anymore....

Re: Game 34: San Jose @ Detroit

What's up? Givani Smith got the hard part of the Gordie Howe hat trick earlier. He's in for Zadina. I got Wes McCauley's autograph at the 1989 Green and White game at East Kentwood, when he was a freshman at Michigan State. Now he's turning 50. Shit. Mike Knuble was there watching, along with the e...
