    Doesn't your idol Brad Gushue have imported players? If it wasn't for an imported player team Gushue would not have won an Olympic gold sir! You are a massive joke short!

    30 Years later and Robin Short is still blowing in the wind... some things will never change.

    So you're from Newfoundland eh? Least you could do was say you're happy with how the teams are doing, each team has TWO players from out of province, You think they will make the world of difference in winning the senior mens? Why take a game of ball away from someone when they dont have a team to go with? You think two players make a difference to an entire team? Sure they may help a bit, but each newfoundland team consists of 13-14 Newfoundlanders, and each newfoundland team competed, with ICA Hitmen and 3Cheers leading the way. What do you have to say about Team Newfoundland (Kelly's Pub) that just won gold at Junior Nationals? They did it without any pick-ups, they beat the "Powerhouses" SSK teams and BC teams and Alberta teams to win it. The main thing that gets me, is why are you writing about how it's not a national tournament if SSK, ALB, BC dont send a team? Does that change the fact that 10 teams are fighting for a national championship? If you had anything to do with the sport, This article would be mroe along the lines of how good the Newfoundland teams are doing, rather than saying they are choke artists. I, like every other Newfoundlander except you, are very proud of our Juniors, and are very proud of how well Newfoundland is representing itself at Seniors. As the saying goes, if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all..

    I follow softball. As I was going for the paper today, I actually thought what will Short say about the nationals. I was not disappointed as it is exactly as I expected. He has written bascically the same article for a number of years. He defends Gushue (no matter what he may do), but can never find a kind word for softball. Short is a tool.

    Mr.Short...ill keep this short,if u cant say anything positive about how our softball teams are doing,then say nothing..apparently,u dont attend softball games,so u should really just stick to reminissing about"your glory days"ball players..these guys are putting it all out there,we are lucky to have the talent to send 3 teams..like ont in"the glory days"which seems to be last time u seen a ballgame .lookin forward to watching tonite,hopwfully your "coments"tomorrow will be a little more positive and uplifting to the boys,because sir,u are a joke.
