Quote: Felton on criticism in the media

“I can’t care less what people say. I’m a strong-minded person. They can say what they want but they cant dictate my life…That’s what happens when you’re a point guard. Things are going to get pointed your way.”

-Raymond Felton on the criticism he’s been receiving

Harris Decker

This is a little ridiculous. Sure, Raymond Felton is pissed off that he’s being criticized, but there are two factors that make this quote absurd.

  1. He’s not being criticized because he’s the point guard, he’s being criticized because he’s playing terribly.
  2. This is not what happens when you’re a point guard. This is what happens when you’re a bad point guard.

Felton has been awful this year and he deserves everything the media is giving him. He’s been really bad on a team that should give him ample opportunities to thrive. He’s surrounded by capable scorers and just can’t seem to get the ball moving. Sorry, Ray, but things are going to continue to be pointed your way until you get it together.

I don't understand why they can't just shift the rink a little to the right (toward the "good" end).  It looks like there is plenty of room to do so, and it would require minor renovations.  If they do that, the scoreboard will be centered and the obstructed views at the "bad" end will be gone.  Am I missing something as to why that is not possible?

One thing it does have is a low ceiling. I agree with Mike, won't be NVMC loud but will be louder than most the newer arenas.

@elephant It's not that simple.  If they did that, there would be obstructed views on both ends.  If you go to a game, just don't sit in one of the clearly identified obstructed view seats, and you will be fine.  I went to both exhibition games, and thought that the views were great.

@Mike T. @elephant how was the building?  how did the noise carry?  are we going to have to scream our heads off to make noise?  coliseum was brilliant for that.

@time2win @Mike T. @elephant  It will not be as loud as the Coliseum, but based upon the way the seating bowl is situated, it should be louder than virtually all of the modern NHL arenas.

DEAR EVERYONE:


PLEASE don't respond to tjpm. He wants your responses. If he doesn't get any he'll eventually get bored and go somewhere else to annoy people. PLEASE PLEASE don't waste your time responding to him.

LOL@puckdad99 The truth can't be ignored. I am the truth.


They couldn't ignore me if they tried.  Evidently.


But do continue to say this 10 times a day every day. Based on the responses not many are listening to you.  You waste more time telling people not to waste time.  LOL Hypocrite.

"Wang needs to be treated as a hero who put a lot of his own money up in attempt to keep his favorite team in the area they belonged."


"To move closer to the city is going to erase that small franchise stigma.  Which marketing wise for the NHL and the team can be extremely lucrative."  


"Being in Brooklyn is going to up the popularity of this team from all over the league, you then market your best player and Tavares is going to give Sidney Crosby a run for his money being the face of the NHL."


"Brooklyn is going to take the team to that next level of marketing which means more coverage and national games."

@tpjm  I seriously don't think I have ever witnessed a remotely coherent thought on your part. You seem consumed by the majority of people that for very legitimate reason abhor the thought of the Islanders playing in that ridiculous basketball gym. I have seen you post your drivel on other web sights as well. My sympathies for you clearly have little else to do with your free time which is rather pathetic. 


The bright side  is at times you are marginally entertaining for your shear tool factor.

Majority of people?  You need to step outside of the little ignorant world of LI, IPB commenters and HF fools.  There's a whole bigger world that disagrees with you morons.....as this article proves.

LOL@Macacawitz  22 years of the lowest revenue and the lowest payroll from a crap building, corrupt pols and no show fans. No money to compete. Let's see how Wang does next season with money to work with. (it was already a 1st step this past season) To ignore that Wang spent money to keep NYI in NY which was the author's point is just ignorant. That you are.

@tpjm You should check out a racist scumbag BrassBonanza10 posting on Lighthouse Hockey. I thought Dom and Dan ran a better blog than that. This place is not worth trolling, as the collective IQs are on the level of war criminal GW Bush. It might be more fun to troll over there.

The old barn is a dump.  A new or completely revamped arena in Nassau?  Fine, but the Coliseum is done.  It was already outdated by the late eighties/early nineties, and is way past its prime.

Well this blog has turned into quite the sewer.

I do miss informed opinion like "your an anarchist junkie". That piece of informed opinion gets three "likes".

Then a long discussion on sight lines from folks who don't need to worry about the sight lines, because they aren't going to Barclays. So why bother bashing something that means nothing to you?

Go outside or something.. Yes, some of you really do need to get a life. Your like crazy cat ladies...

Enjoy the offseason for some, for far too many- enjoy spending your nights here instead of with real people..

@rmvacation in chimes the preacher....the reason "your an anarchist junkie" comment gets three likes is because the person who its directed towards is an immature troll.  Further more the people who complain about the sight lines are clearly demonstrating that it means something to them. And to disparage people who are posting on this sight by accusing them of being some sort of recluse because they are posting in a post of your own wreaks of hypocrisy...If you think you are clever take a step back and think again.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for making my point. So many classic over reactions, your so easy to goad.

This used to be a great site. Now it features some sad sacks telling the same stories from yesteryear.

When more and more of the responses are typed by the same people- the blog is dying. It is basically a chat room for about a half dozen of you who have no other entertainment options. I am just in transit from point A to point B to point C, wasting time. You folks are an internet comedy skit in real time, with no audience.

Time to move along from point B to point C. You kids keep telling each other how sharp and witty you believe yourselves. Then consider actually going outside, and getting a life.. It's been fun. Check back in a few weeks- nothing will have changed.
