The Coup
« on: February 03, 2009, 11:45:38 AM »
We'll try to keep it bloodless, but we'll do what we've got to do. It is pretty obvious that the Sensnetwork brain trust can run this team better than the idiots in charge, so it's about time we stormed down there in the night and took over.

Feel free to apply for a position in this thread. List your credentials and your plans for the team should you attain the position.

Don't forget to get your pitchforks sharpened up.

Signed,

Okay, there are a couple of stipulations for this position, though.

You must:

-Have had some history of shady business dealings in your past
-Look like a total dickhole, something along the lines of:

He could drink like hell, he could fight like hell.

Director of Apologies

I'd be busy for the first year or two.  But with the right management team, I should be able to coast after the end of next season.

Director of cliches.

I am infinitely qualified as that is all I ever heard or read regarding hockey and I am sick of them.

My first duty if I am chosen will be to remove them from player's and coach's and GM's vocabulary.  From now on, all interviews will be terminated as soon as one of those ugly beasts leaves from their mouths!!

Director of player personnel

I have seen Mighty Ducks 1,2,3 at least 100 times and I own a DVD copy of Slapshot, which is on a loop on my DVD player.

First order of business would be to spend billions of dollars into finding a way to create a living breathing replica of "Reggie Dunlop".

I will drive the players home after games and give them shit about some mistake they made on the ice.  Then, I will give them bad advice because I know nothing about the game and I'll tell them to do things the complete opposite of what their coaches are trying to teach them.

Don't forget encouraging individual play rather than team play.

Then you could email the coach evey Monday morning and tell him what a crappy job he's doing with your kid.

I've done it before, I can do it again.  Just ply them (the media) with good food, lots of booze, incredible stats and watch the oceans of 'good ink' flow!!  Spend lots of attention on visiting media so you can always get your hands on free tickets when you are visiting other cities in North America.   :nod:

Goalie coach

They say goalies are from a different planet and speak a different language and it applies to austrALIENS as well. Plus after watching the canucks and the sens over the years I know all about what terrible goaltending looks like. I'd be coaching along the lines of "see lalime let in that shot? Don't do that", "see lidstrom's 50 footer go in? Don't do that". I'd be good for post game quotes too.
Go Canucks, Go Sens.

I don't think you can use the words See and Lalime in the same sentence.  I'm 100% convinced that objects 40 feet from him disappear into a dark hole and can't be seen.  ;)

Exactly what language are you speaking ?
