360 - it all depends on whether they are the division working on the CEC, and whether they worked on Rogers, I suppose. Being a subsidiary of a company doesn’t mean much in this conversation.
All of this is beside the point: La Familia soiled this thread with his off-topic bitching about the new CEC. As if there aren't other threads for him to whine about his most recent favourite gripe.

If he really does speak for La Familia, couldn't he just put out a contract on the architect? That would get things changed in a hurry.

"Edmonton mayoral candidate Mike Nickel calls for a ‘travel advisory’ for downtown Edmonton after reviewing crime data from Edmonton Police."

I mean, why just downtown? Why not all of Edmonton as it should be?

The Blues are retiring Chris Pronger’s jersey…

Man the Oilers must be jealous. With their bottomless love for banners they probably also really want to retire Chris’s jersey… but they can’t.

Or can they?

They’ve done worse tone deaf things to their pathetic failure enabling fan base in the past.

I'm assuming they would rather hang his wife from the rafters...

Was watching Global news this evening in Edmonton and the counter argument by a lady interviewed was that she would have a hard time reselling tickets. Haha.

Your arena looks like a toilet bowl.....your point is invalid!

Apparently it smells like one too.

A lot of gold coming in the article.

If you’re asking me for my double vaccine requirement, can you ask someone if they got their STI test?” he said. “Like how far is this going to go? It’s nobody’s business, especially not the government’s, if I’ve been vaccinated or not.
STI test...what the hell is he doing at these games?
And of course it is the Governments business if he gets it...that how it is paid for...by the taxpayer. He is probably one of those idiots who thinks healthcare is free.

You realize it is free to go to the hospital, but it isn't free based on the fact that almost 50% of our budget from taxes goes to cover healthcare right?

Gotta fill his time somehow?

The alternative is watching the Oilers try and play hockey.

If it was great and I apologize for misunderstanding, but I read it as if you refuse to get the vaccine you shouldn't expect to get FREE healthcare.

Again if I read it wrong I apologize. Thanks for letting me know.

Oilers front office group ranked 28th overall in an Athletic Article.

Some great quotes from fans about how inept the group is;

Quote:
“The Oilers are going to waste having two of the top players in the league, in their primes, because they are inept at making any sort of free agent move that doesn’t handcuff them”
Quote:
“Trading for Duncan Keith without having Chicago retain any salary was an absolute show of incompetence by Ken Holland. The Ceci contract was another moment which caused me to bang my head against a wall and cry.”
Quote:
“Since 2006, watching Oilers management decisions (including the choice of each new manager) has been like having the same bad dream again and again, a bit like seeing an accident happen in front of you in slow motion while being powerless to stop it.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself
