SEARCH FOR C14 CONCLUDES

Wanye
September 30 2013 12:47PM

 

That don't look like no Sam Gagner being named Captain. Uh oh.

I'm a big boy, I own up to my mistakes. I said that Sam Gagner was going to be named Captain a few weeks back because I was told by someone who I trust that was going to be the case. Not because it was a rumour. Not because I was looking to stir the pot. But because I believed it was going to happen.

And I was wrong. So be it.

SHOUTOUT TO FAILURE

Your ol' pal Wanye saw an opportunity and I pounced on it. I don't regret it and given the chance to do it over again I would. I can suffer unlimited slings and arrows from haters as I am made of tougher stuff. So if you want to tell me off and call me names let's get at it.

I don't block people on twitter or ban people from the site. So let's dance.

SHOUTOUT TO SAMWISE

Poor ol Sam Gagner first of all. He went from being trolled on the internet by some clownshow with a fake name as being the next Captain to having his jaw turned to dust and being on the LTIR. For the record you would have made a tremendous Captain of the Oilers. I hope you get more respect from us Tier 2 rabble going forward in your career.

Look at you tweeting pictures of being back in the gym already. Respect.

SHOUTOUT TO THE C14
 

Welly welly well. Andrew Ference is the new Captain of the Oilers. To quote the immortal TowelBoy "Who saw this coming?" I certainly didn't. Good on you Captain. You join a laundry list of heroes including Gretzky, Messier, Lowe, Weight. You also join Corson, Moreau and Horcoff. It's up to you which column you will ultimately join and we sincerely hope its the group of Legends.

Yes you used to be a Calgary Flame. Yes you have a Bruins tattoo on your right bicep. None of that matters. You are our man now. Please make the Oilers win. For heaven's sakes it would just be so grand.

SHOUTOUT TO COACH EAKINS

At the end of the day this entire Captaincy naming proves one thing. Dallas Eakins ain't here to rubber stamp the orders of the Powers that Be for the Oilers. Naming Ference Captain comes straight from his playbook and he is clearly calling the shots around these parts now.

Do whatever you think needs to be done. Name Ference C14. Release Ryan Jones. Close every single doughnut shop in Northern Alberta. Just PLEASE get the Oil on the right side of the win-loss column. You have our unwavering respect Sir.

SHOUTOUT TO TPTB

Shoutout to Bob Stauffer and Kevin Lowe respectively. I appreciate that K-Lowe took time out of his day a few weeks back to go on Stauffer's show and call me names. I also appreciate Stauffer saying my real name on the air and DM'ing me threats on Twitter. I get it fellas. I am a nerdy blogger that lives in his Mom's basement and couldn't possibly know anything that goes on in minds as great as yours.

But you might want to rethink your approach to how you treat us young nerds though in this day and age. You might be surprised who we turn into one day.

At least you gave us something to talk about. You thought you had a scoop so you reported it. Even guys like McKenzie and Dregor jump the gun and get proven wrong from time to time.

Stauffer needs to get off his high horse.

I didn't hear your real name, so you're safe from my wrath. The one thing going for you right now Wayne is that there will always be the question that if Gagner hadn't been injured would he be made the next captain. Guess we'll never know. Now I hope you keep your cojones and not shy away whenever you get another chance to jump the gun on breaking news. This is your operation Genoa

Serious Gord, you are the miley cyrus of Oilers fans. You call Oilers Now and you have nothing to add tot he conversation. You ramble nonsense and get stuck on the same flawed argument. The surprising thing is that Bob himself gives you so much air time when really the discussions between you too are some of the most ridiculous stuff out there on radio. I don't know if you and Bob are pillow buddies or what's up but you ruin the show every time you call. You make stupid generalizations like "that's what ethical bloggers do". As if you had conducted a series of studies on several bloggers, then ran an a double blind experiment, then sifted through the data and concluded with a 95% confidence interval that ethical bloggers do what you say. You want to write and talk on a higher plane, but it just comes out as if you were reading random words from a dictionary you bought at Value village. Tell you what, why don't you start your own blog where you can safely deposit all the manure that comes out of your mind instead on twerking the rest of the Oilogosphere.

I can easily forgive Wanye for a wacky prediction that Gagner would be the next captain. Forgiving Stauffer for weeks of being the messenger of veiled threats that the Oilers would move if they didn't get their arena deal is going to take a lot longer to forgive or forget.

If Bob didn't do that of his own accord then I hope, for his sake, that Katz lets him be the harbinger of something amazing to make up for it.

Bob Stauffer does and says NOTHING without approval of Six Cups, Batman and the like. He is not a reporter or analyst, he's a PR flack.

Nothing comes out of his mouth that's not approved by the entire "braintrust".

I would also point Stauffer defenders to do a little research with respect to noms de plume (look it up) in the media. Go research the names of the hosts of the Paul Brown Show on the Bear.

Terry Evans on K97 too.

You'll be surprised.

Wouldn't it be a kick in the nads if Gagner WAS going to be the C and once Lowe and MacT got wind of Wanye leaking how the decision was made - THEY CHANGED THEIR MINDS AND CHOOSE FERENCE JUST TO SHOW WHO'S BOSS!

Wanye may just have single-handedly changed the future of the Oilers!

I've been reading OilersNation daily since near inception, when the vast majority of the forum at Hockey's Future used to make fun of it and not take it seriously. "Oh! That OilersNation is nothing but a bunch of nonsense posted by a bunch of nobody's"! While the former may have been partially true at the time, the latter certainly was not. Vision folks, vision.

If I would have told Wanye years ago when I spotted him in the first prototype OilersNation t-shirt at a Oilers game that one day he would be talked about on 630 CHED by Bob Stauffer and Kevin Lowe... well he would have laughed in my face (I might have chuckled right along with him). Props and respect my man, you've done an amazing job.

On a side note - Allan Mitchell of TSN 1260... has a nice ring to it. Mad respect as well. Great to see good people get rewarded!

If that was you real Stauffer, thanks for dropping by.

I always suspected that NewAgeSystem was really Pat Quinn. He rambled on and on all the time like we were his grand kids. He also claimed that he had the answers to our 'systems play issues'. And he seemed to be either slightly delusional; an angry drifter; or off his med's.

Why do fans need to bash media personalities in this town? If every media guy didn't speculate on rumours, gave non opinionated arguments, and didn't try to stir the pot to get people calling in or debating on blogs, what a boring off season it would be just reading "the facts". We all can read what the facts are every day. Its the personalities all of them that we should appreciate.

We should be thankful that we have 2 radio stations with quality sports coverage that we can choose from, multiple bloggers that we can visit and extend our oiler community to, and all oilers games broadcasted. I remember not so long ago when no games were broadcasted, no full time sports radio and no Oiler blogs. This all just makes it more fun and interactive. So every once and a while they will say something that will push boundaries, give some different opinions or speculate on rumours, it all is just ENTERTAINMENT. These guys are not running our country they are not perfect, they are simply giving their opinions and trying to make things interesting and give people something to debate and talk about with our friends, fans, coworkers etc and I'm thankful for all of them even if I don't like or agree with them.

Wanye - you were wrong. who cares. We debated it at work for a month, gave us something to discuss rather than work.

Perhaps Wayne heard right and his friend just forgot to finish his sentence that Gagner was in fact captain....of the kids club. Honest question though, do they usually make the captain the captain of the kids club too? If not, that might have been a tip off, but I'm not sure what the usual deal is so...
