I'm a competitive guy - especially when it comes to sports.  But when it comes to manager games such as this or other fantasy sports, and really just life in general, I'm all about a little comedy.  This thread is to post things you notice in the game that make you laugh, regardless if those things have a positive or negative impact on your team.  Odd game results, quirky injuries, horrible trades offered by computer teams... share it here.  Hopefully the mood stays positive and doesn't take an ugly turn.  I'll start.

 

I love the irony of receiving these messages back to back.

And related to the image above, despite being absolutely horrible for my team, how it happened made me laugh as well.

Humor if you're American. Humour pretty much everywhere else.

This is the perfect thread for me. Btw, it was a  over-payment on my part for a role player that I planned on probably only keeping this season.

Ouch, Matt... that is rough!  See this thread is good.  If nothing else, it will help people commiserate.

 

A similar thing happened to me last year actually... with a player you might know well.  I ended up acquiring McGlashan from your old Biscuit Guardians.  I feel like I paid a decent price for him, a player rated 2 notches lower, a couple of draft picks and a prospect.  Anyways, a few days after acquiring him, he went out for 23 games.  Good stuff!

So, including the day Croft was injured, I've gone 4 days in a row with a center being injured. And they each centered a different line, so none of them were backups. Fortunately only Croft will be out for a while and only Kamenskikh missed an actual game due to the injury.

In another coincidental note, my team that was just in a demotion spot is also currently on a 3 game winning streak, all against top 5 teams before I beat them. So are injuries actually good?

I believe this has occurred in almost every post game report this year.  On the Team Overview page, my assistant tells me...

Then this message is displayed... on every single player's page

I'm getting into a losing spree to compensate my winning streak from before.

I'm proud of my GHL rookie, Matousek! This week he played so well that he took 1st Star of the week...in the SHL!

3 games, 94 shots, NO goals!

After ripping off my best win streak in two seasons of five in a row and make me think the season is finally turning around, I get outscored 4-0 to lose three straight and back to 16th place. When I am relegated, these three games will be a sharp thorn in my side!

How does that even happen - the odds are ridiculous Steve! I've had several games lately in Biscuit where my whole team plays great and we still find new ways to lose. When the coach told them to 'get creative out there', I don't think he meant in how to make ourselves look like fools...

My guess is that my guys, although taking ample shots, have a slapper like a Mighty Mites team!

The refs seemed a little bias in this one.  Not only did they book me for 3 penalties in a 2-minute span... they started the 3rd period face off in my defensive zone.

 

Ref, shouldn't that be at center ice?  Don't worry about it.

"Ok, who's the wise guy? I'm the GM - who denied my pre-season match?"

"It was your wife Mr O'Connor."

"Carry on Stew."

...my phone will not let me upload screen shots for some weird reason but I got a message saying that My Team denied our own pre-season match...had no conflicting matches either...hmmm

"Hey Yzerman, I'll give you my star Center down in my minors and I'll add a beef stick and a six pack of Coors for Matthews and Kadri - sounds like a good deal right?"

This is how I feel on a regular basis with some of the offers I get from players...
