I grew up in Santa Cruz. Lived there between 1980 and 2000. Since 2000 I have been living in the Silicon Forest to the west of Portland, OR. I am a Portland Winterhawks (WHL) fan to go along with being a devout follower of the San Jose Sharks. I remember The Cow Palace! I've got signed cards and pucks from members of the original team and I've kept my copy of the November/December 1992 Sharks Magazine pristine (beyond several autographs applied to it). While "The Tank" was under construction my Father, an Architect, and I approached the arena. My Father had the brilliant idea to pull out some blue prints to carry along with us. We were given hardhats and allowed to wander the facility. I told him section 103 was our place and we had season tickets there in row 11 until I moved out of the state. I played Roller Hockey with Shawn Cronin and Tom Pederson down in Scotts Valley. I interviewed Friesen, over the phone, for NHL.com which then and now sounds like a kid whom was awestruck.

Sabres in another outdoor game?!? I mean I can understand Toronto yet again (2014, 2017, 2018) because of their market star power and the leagues infatuation with them but the Sabres getting a third game (2008, 2018) with their suck level and biggest star wanting to run from them?!?
If the league wants a "rivalry" game with Toronto why not Montreal getting another outdoor game here?!? Toronto still seems to have people feeling that if they had not collapsed against the Canadiens when up 3-1 they’d have been the Canadian team competing for The Cup against Tampa.
Inquiring minds want to know!

So the consensus from those familiar with the NFL SBN pages
Appears to be that the incoming new commenting functionality sucks. On a scale of 1 to 10 how bad are we talking (10 being horrendously bad)?
LOL, recs for you both
