The boycott doesn't bother me. Neither do straight edge or vegetarians. It means more beer, hamburgers, and an extra ticket for me.

Any balance sheet I show you will have me very deep in the red in this site.
And I have no ticket fund...unless you want to start one for me.

How far into the red? On a scale from goon conservative red to rock bottom worst case scenario detroit red.

All I am trying to point out to you is that your boycott is really not a boycott, seeing that you are regularly logged in on a hockey message board. Then, when someone disagrees with you you accuse them of trolling. I continue to disagree with you and you call me a spineless sheep for not carrying the same viewpoint as you and choosing to support my team, our team. Don't apologize to the rest of the members, this is nothing new. Douchebags like you stop in all the time. If you want to boycott the NHL, then boycott the NHL. Don't come on here talking a big game about your convictions and then try and participate in a discussion about Blues hockey. The majority of us on this board aren't here to read about your personal disdain for the NHL, we're here because we are excited about the team that we have been waiting for years to develop. I've been a Blues fan my whole life, and this team is now a legitimate cup contender. I choose to support them along with the majority of this message board, but in your eyes that makes us "spineless sheep". Have your boycott, but be a man and stick to your word. Boycott for ten games. That would include the NHL, NHL Network, NHL Radio, NHL.com, hockey related message boards, Scottrade Center, etc. If you are going to boycott, then boycott. If not, it's like an alcoholic saying they stopped drinking whiskey but not beer. BOYCOTT EVERYTHING FOR 10 GAMES. Until then, get the (Frank) off the forum. :okman: :goblues:


My boycott consists of not giving them any of my money, via going to games, watching games on TV and purchasing any merchandise. It has nothing to do with forums. That is the background of my boycott. Please don't take that as a lack of support, I still love my team. I posted a link previously that stated that. And the "spineless sheep" comment wasn't made because you disagree with my views, it was because you feel that the only opinion is your opinion. I said from the very beginning that the "Just Drop It" campaign wasn't for everyone and that I am not trying to sway anyone's opinion and that please just respect mine. I am sorry if I hurt your feelings.


In case you have not noticed most of us on this board DON"T GIVE A SHIT ABOUT YOUR boycott! Quit posting your BULLSHIT!!!! It's annoying and it doesn't make US mindless sheep. Mindless sheep are those doing what most everyone else is doing - like doing what someone on facebook asks you to do :moran:

Theohall bringing the heat. :aaaa: I know I got into it with 313 and I do disagree with him coming on here to parade his boycott the mindless sheep comment irked me to a new level, but Curt is right. Let's not chase off the new members. It's his right, and he'll be back in the fold in a couple weeks.

Ahhhh, this little guy is angry. Dude I thought you were boycotting. Stop "trolling" on the board, it's getting old. Come back in 9 more games when you're done with your little temper tantrum.


It's not trolling, it's my opinion. And it's one that is shared by thousands of fans across the league. If you don't like it, then don't comment. I am sorry that you are too much of a spineless sheep to understand.

dr313, I think you've learned in short time that you need to have a thick skin to survive up in this bitch. Be careful how you present yourself, especially as a new member, the veterans will be up your ass like Jeffrey Dahmer's cellmate with a brookstick. It's just a hazing though, unless you proceed to act like a know it all twerp.

Anyway, welcome to LGB.

First off, I would proudly buy Curt a ticket to a game simply as thanks for having this site up and operating it. I think that's the least someone can do for him.

Second to DR313, I am the idiot mascot of this forum and I am totally insulted that you have the audacity, especially as a newcomer, to even try and dare to take my crown away. It's mine, you can't have it though I must commend you on your totally stupid and idiotic boycotting. You're doing such a great job in your goals, I mean, you have EVERYONE on here choosing a single and polarizing side.

Sadly it's against you.

Knock if off.

Any balance sheet I show you will have me very deep in the red in this site.
And I have no ticket fund...unless you want to start one for me.

How far into the red? On a scale from goon conservative red to rock bottom worst case scenario detroit red.


Back in the day (maybe 5-6 years ago or so) , when I had the LGB Booster donation option... a nice handful of guys donated to the site... $5, $10, $20 a piece.
Over time, donations dropped off, which is to be expected.
A couple guys contacted me and donated a nice amount this year, which was much appreciated.

When I redesigned the site a while back, I took down the LGB Booster donation page and planned on revamping it a bit. But I never got around to that and it's been down ever since. I need to get that back up as every once in a while someone asks about donating.
I've said before that I want to get that back up in the near future, and put up a site store as well...with a couple t-shirt options or whatever. I'll get to it eventually.

Grand total since I started this site back in 2001, I've probably received around $400 in donations. Which is awesome.
With the traffic we get and the hosting needed to accommodate that, plus domain fees...it has probably run me in the neighborhood of $1500 over the last 12 years. But that's a drop in the bucket compared to the hundreds of hours I have put into it. But I never think of as an expense, as I enjoy doing it. That part is fun for me. And being in the red a little over $1000 when spread out over 12 years isn't bad.

For the longest time I refused to put ads on the forum. I tried it a long time ago and received zero revenue from it, so what's the point? I recently put up the ad at the top of the forum to help out the guy who was kind enough to sponsor our Lets Go Blues Radio podcast.

To be perfectly honest, if anyone wants to help out with the site, but can't swing a donation, a great way to contribute would be to click on the ad in the forum, or the other ads on the Lets Go Blues Radio page. Our sponsors have been given the ability to monitor ad clicks, so click on the ads and try out their products...they'll notice. Hell, the Fanzlive app is free for Android and iPhone... doesn't cost you a cent to try it out. If the sponsors are happy, then I'm happy. :grin:

You should do what I did. I scheduled a getaway so I wouldn't be tempted to watch the season opener. I figured if I could get past that, I could go through with my personal protest. Right?

So there I was in an Orlando sports bar with a transplanted St. Louis friend of mine, watching the Blues stomp the Red Wings 6-0...

I don't think I would've forgiven myself if I would've missed that game.

Life is too short to deprive yourself of something you love. Ultimately my passion for hockey and the St. Louis Blues outweighs a silly agenda. I waited several years for this powerhouse to be built and I'll be damned if I'm not going to watch when what could be the final pieces (Schwarz & Frank) are in place.

BAAAAA!
