Pictures: A Girls Guide To Watching The Rangers

Yesterday, for a short time, the Rangers posted something on Blueshirts United titled “A Girls Guide To Watching The Rangers”

It was met with much anger on twitter, including this from Sarah Baicker of CSN Philly, “Just saw the “Girls Guide to Watching the Rangers.” Author seems to forget millions of girls: watch hockey. play hockey. love hockey. Lame.”

After the fact, the Rangers sent out this message on twitter, “Today’s article was posted by a fan contributor. We determined article was inappropriate & took it down. We apologize to all offended fans.”

After the jump are pictures from the article via Sarah Kwak of SI

I liked Simms as a backup no.3, whoopie, someone will pick him up, his dad can go back to bashing the Jets

Matt’s brother Chris Simms, claimed that Matt was not getting a legitimate shot at an NFL job because of his last name.


Really? I'm pretty sure it's his last name that got him on a roster to begin with.

Oh noes. Whatever will we do now?


More importantly. Does Phil Simms go back to hating us and making the Jets games he does unbearable? Or does Brady's cheating keep the current balance?

awww well thats weird.. I'm pretty sure a bunch of people on this site said Simms was better than Geno... and the people here are really smart sooo I guess the jets made a mistake today.:) 


or maybe people just fell in love with a name. 


Bollinger > Simms

Finally, this should have been done a long time ago.  Macc is getting ridd of the D-league players that have been placed on this roster that past few years. 


future is bright!

Interesting take from @statcenter:


I've got a few tweets about Thibs + the Bulls. 1st, CHI handled his exit gracelessly, and it reflects poorly on the org. That said firing Thibs was the right decision. He had years to adapt - adapt his offense, his insane practices, his mins played. Never did.  Thibs is the NBA's Rex Ryan: an amazing def mind who won instantly, but has a fatal flaw. For Rex, it's lack of attention to offense.  For Thibs, it's rigidity to the point of insanity. Being smart and hard-working isn't enough. You have to fit the org's principles.

Bottom line I got from Rex in this piece was: the only thing he really did wrong while HC of the Jets was not more aggressively blaming someone else for the dysfunction and the failure.

Pelicans will not hire him, they are the most insular organization on sports, they will not cede control to a guy like him....I bet it's van gundy ot gentry, gentry is most likely because of money and demps relationship with him

I liken Thibs and his insanity with Jim Harbaugh.  

Clearly smart and intelligent but missing something that makes them work nicely with others, mainly their bosses. Rex Ryan is liked by everybody including his GM's and owner.

He might have wanted to use lessons learned with jets to shape his jets tenure, when he still had it.

Interesting angle.


After the firing, I saw two back-to-back tweets, the first one stating "The Pelicans are about to get really good" and the second one replying "The Pelicans are about to get really tired".

Maybe that's what we're doing with Matt Simms's former roster spot: signing an old WR who we probably shouldn't sign.

@tsjc68 Tim Tebow is on an NFL roster.  He shouldn't be.

So, who's interested and where does he wind up next, Browns, Giants, Jax (Idzik calling)?

That was us. We gave him a chance.

I'm not betting on him sticking anywhere.

Connor Rogers said Baltimore might be interested.

@jetsjerk He'll go somewhere to be a camp arm. His last name is Simms, so someone will give him a chance.

Baltimore's current QB depth chart:

Joe Flacco - Matt Schaub - Bryn Renner - Jerry Lovelocke


Yeah, I don't see Simms beating out Renner or Lovelocke.

Maybe New England for four weeks until Brady's suspension ends.

Nah, this makes perfect sense for him.


He's gonna get cut anyway.  Getting cut now >>>>>>>>>>> getting cut on August 31st

AP sounded upset....He must be really pissed that he can't take a tree branch and slap the sh--- out of his 4 year old.....We all know that's how he used to let out his frustration....


I read the AP tweets.....laughed....and want to send my sympathy to a star running back who no doubt voted for Obama twice......


Thank goodness for the AP's of the world......They make our country better.....oh wait


smh at this putzzz

That has nothing to do with nothing.  Probably half of the people who also voted for Obama think Peterson is a punk who deserved to be suspended, and probably half of the people who voted for Romney think that Peterson was innocent and was railroaded and deserves to be compensated for the time that the league stole away from him.


Please don't try to glom Peterson's antics on to one political party, that's asinine.

@bradysucks

Given the geographic areas where they tend to be clustered, I bet if you actually polled all the Obama voters and all the Romney voters, the Obama voters probably have more of a problem with corporal punishment and with Peterson's behavior.

I associate stupidity with Obama...and those who voted for him

Worst President of my lifetime....you're right I took a cheap shot....and politics has no place on this blog....My apologies.

And my suspicion stated to bradysucks below turns out to be correct.


Simms asked out (because he knew the numbers game).  We obliged (because so did we).

I would hope to see Petty and Fitz take reps with the 1st team in at least one of the preseason games


We all KNOW what Geno is......None of us have had the chance to watch Petty and pre-season would be a great opportunity

I wouldn't. Because he doesn't need to start doing that until 2016, at the earliest.


Geno and Fitz, sure.  Petty, no.
