Still trying to swallow the Gordie Howe as best fighter in the 50's. Are you familiar with Ferny Flaman he was the real deal, Gordie actually never fought all that much but he has this one brawl with Lou Fontinato and he is all world and the whole Gordie Howe hat trick thing is really a joke. Not 100% on this but I think on hockeyfights.com they came up with 22 fights for Gordie. Hockey News in 1966 chose Flaman as top heavyweight of his era saying he may have never lost a fight usually coming to the defense of another teammate. He was just not messed with.
Hey, Brad. I just read the article from yesterday on Rolston. Good job with the flow of it and the improvement. Keep up the excellent articles.
I found it really cool how you comment back to the readers. Really helps communication between the commenters. Looking forward to your next article. Hopefully it will be soon.
Hey brad, just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your willingness to not just write an article and forget it. The fact that you go back in and respond to our comments is really awesome. And when you admit a mistake, it really shows character. You're doing your part to give B/R a good name.
Brad, just wanted to commend you for taking the time to respond to our comments on your articles. Unlike most, you are open to some criticism on your articles and the facts or opinions presented and I appreciate that. If you're ever looking for more insightful hockey conversation, I'm always available to argue.
Had to do it 1 post per team. Would be far too disorganized if I tried to fit it all in one post. Pretty sure would have reached text limit as well. :P
Please check your facts: Bill Chadwick was NOT the first American born NHL referee. Bill Stewart was both the first American to Referee in the NHL as well as to Coach and General manage an NHL team to a Stanley Cup, 1938, Chicago Blackhawks. Bill Stewart broke Bill Chadwick in as a referee in Montreal. I know because Bill Chadwick told me.
Bill Stewart's grandson Paul Stewart became the first American born Referee to to work 1,000 NHL games. Thank you,
