Although there's been some exciting moments so far with men's ice hockey in Sochi (especially Russia vs USA), Burr had some solid points regarding trendy, spur of the moment hockey fans.
The people who like Olympic Hockey annoy me. Because they're always comparing it to the NHL, which they don't watch. And NHL hockey is infinitely better.
The rinks are bigger, there's no fighting, the talent is way less. I like how there's like 3 NHL guys on each team, for the most part, other than USA and Canada. And they're like (silly announcer voice) "This is just like a bunch of all-star teams." No, no it isn't. It's like the NBA, there's like 2 stacked f***ing teams and the rest are s**t.
"Here comes Latvia! What are they gonna do tonight!?" They got like 1 guy. It's stupid. And then everybody sits there lying, "If the NHL was like this, I would watch." What, if it was f***ing 2 weeks long you could hang in there? And they go right to the championship game?
And then they start making suggestions on how to make the NHL better, and they talk about the NHL like it's still 1975. "With all the bench-clearing brawls and the stick work!" Mike Wilbon said that... "The stick work."
What are you talking about? Like they're out in the faceoff sticking it in each other's eyes... Once every 5 years there's an incident. And then all those guys who don't watch hockey, they pile on. (dorky voice) "You see, this is why. This is why it isn't one of the top sports. I'll tell you, if they would just get rid of this Dave Schultz. I'm telling you, he's out of control."
It's stupid. We're all hanging on to 1980. It's not amateurs anymore, the Cold War is over. It's done. It's finished. It's boring.
