No one confronted him. That was a rumor posted by CCtig and repeated incorrectly by Chris.

Basically he was sent a threatening anonymous letter. Most likely it was sent by a player parent.

When did CCtig start this rumor? I am under the impression it was started by BBM. Is Chris BBM?


I come to a different conclusion. Swami got into a physical confrontation with the family of a DU player.

That would be a great screen for Swami’s reincarnation though - AnIdiotGoneTooFar.

Could anyone take a stab at what the D pairings might look like for the season opener. I'm wondering where Josiah Didier fits. Thanks

ThanksDU will roll 7 defensemen & 11 forwards every game this season barring injuries and Didier will get major minutes. Whom he is paired with is anybody's guess but likely candidates would seem to be Makowski, Lee, Phillips or Ryder in that order.

Didier was injured this weekend with a puck off the foot, but he'll be in the lineup next week and you can bet that will be the lines that will be used early in the season.

Phillips - Makowski
Ryder - Mayfield
LaLeggia - Lee

What a total knob...thanks for clearing that up for my DG. Still makes me very angry. No one has more respect and no one wants success for DU hockey more than Swami. Utter disgrace...

It's good to have the accurate information. I feel badly about my role in spreading the rumors. But my reaction is the same: move it on down the road, a*shole.

I never said he was threatened. When did I say that? Show me.

My mistake. Its hard to keep track of all this crap and who said what. I tried to stay out of this and when I finally said something I misquoted you.

Larazza should be back next week according to Chambers.

"Freshman forward Zac Larraza is expected to be cleared by the NCAA this week. His 21-day grace period of being able to practice with the team ended today, Gwozdecky said, but the coach doesn’t anticipate any problems with getting him cleared."

I don't hide behind a moniker and never have, been posting here since the mid 90's when the only other DU posters were Jimbo, Pablo, a dude named Andy, a dude named Pete and Swami under his real name. If someone has a problem with me, it's not hard to find me at games or find out who I am and I couldn't care less any how, talk to me.... All I ever meant about Swami is that there are 2 schools of thought in regards to him -- some love him and some hate him and each for their own reasons. I personally like Swami even when I don't agree with him all the time, but I choose to try and be neutral as I know people from both camps in regards to their "Swami feelings".

On here, especially among the Denver faithfull that have posted here for years...Swami has been a staple of the fanbase on this forum. I think we definitely need to work at getting him back. I think Swami, DG, Old Pio and Chris were the only other DU fans on here when I came in...maybe a few others.

I know I have had differences with people...I know Chris and I have had disagreements in the past... but who doesn't?

I just feel that whoever drove swami away from here really needs a reality check.

Its really not a matter of how he was driven away, its a matter of backing him and getting him back on here.

Here! Here! or is it Hear! Hear!
But I, for one, would love to read Swami's analysis of this year's team.

Actually it was Old Pio. :eek:


For those of us who are out of town, our understanding is that you angrily confronted Swami at Magness last year, all lathered up about something he posted here. Our further understanding is that you are a hockey parent.

I'm just curious, did McGill play like bunch of thugs Saturday night? All through the CC game, McGill players were getting tossed for hits to the head and checking from behind. After a line brawl in the third period, CC had 3 players tossed and McGill had 3 tossed (in that exchange, both teams combined for 90+ minutes of penalties). I'm glad to see that team leave.

By the way, CC dominated most of the game and won 3-2.

I went to the AFA/McGill tonight. They (just a few of 'em) played like thugs here tonight as well. Unfortunately a McGill player took out Mitch Torrel late in the 3rd...a wicked blow to the head. He got tossed and Torrel was on the ice for 10+ minutes...they carried him off on a stretcher...2 towels soaked with blood and a crew had to scrape the rest of the blood off. What an ugly sight. Keep Torrel in your prayers.

Sounds awful. However, scalp wounds bleed profusely, and the presence of a lot of blood doesn't necessarily mean significant skull injury. Fingers crossed.

I've often noticed how loose fitting the players seem to wear their helmets these days. We've talked in the past about the helmets that Mark Messier promotes (http://www.cascadeicehockey.com/) to protect from concussions. And of course most hockey fans are aware of the death of DU Alum Bill Masterton who died from an injury when his head hit the ice.

Lastest update:

Torrel does have movement in his arms and legs. Looks like a concussion at this time.

Torrel was bent over and skating backward into the McGill zone while collecting the puck when McGill's Francis Verreault-Paul elbowed Torrel in the back of the head, driving him helmet-first into the boards. He suffered a head injury and a cut above the left eye.

Air Force played them tough...and won 5-4.

Best wishes for a full and speedy recovery for Torrel...
The whining (yes, i have participated) is getting tiresome, so i will do my part to get the Swami back:
If he doesn't come back before the first regular season game, i will change my home page from the NWS:

to Losanjealous' Nietzsche Family Circus:

It would have been nice if it didn't need to come to this, but when faced with desperate circumstances, sometime desperate measures are called for, like when the Cubans attacked Pearl Harbour.

Now that we have the Swami rumors cleared up...

I'm sure he'll return to posting sometime, but I bet he has other ways to support the program in the meantime.

For those out there who can't handle fans talking about players: STAY OFF THE INTERNET, and crawl back into your bubble. Either that, or grow a thicker skin and stop messing with the people that actually give a dammmmn about DU hockey.

I can't wait for the season to start. I know it's a burden to carry heavy expectations, but this could be a team to get excited about if everyone can stay healthy. Bennett, Shore, Zucker, Makowski, Ryder, Mayfield. Looks promising, especially with Murray's solid debut against McGill.

I'm mostly bummed about Notre Dame, but what are you gonna do? If there was a behind-the-scenes refusal to give in to any unreasonable Notre Dame demands, then I'm OK with it.
