No doubt, as if he needs to turn a bigger profit off the time in Buffalo. Plus my 4 year old could design a nicer hoodie

I am. Being miserable at work is being miserable at work, no matter how much you're getting paid. I don't wish that on anyone.

I used to feel that way about working with computers. Now I do it every day all day and there's a lot of stuff I'd rather be doing.

Everyone's life and experience is their own. I can understand that his time in Buffalo was not by any stretch a happy one, money neither prevents nor cures the sort of thing he's talking about having gone through. While he quite willingly signed the contract, alarm bells were ringing about the likelihood of success for him before he rolled into town. Tanks, Darcy, TPegs, or some combination of the two for that decision. It's probably genuinely painful for him even now.

Having said that and stretched my sympathy as far as it'll go, he can ###### right off and keep cashing his buyout checks.

I totally get the "I'm trapped but I'm making money so I should be grateful" feeling. Not with millions of dollars, or with the entire subculture of my profession laughing at me, but... 

 

This just smacks of immaturity to me.

 

And I don't dig the art. Basquiat you're not. Personal preference. 

 

Doing the painting is one thing. Cool. Purge your feelings. I fully support that. I don't know his struggles. Lord knows I've painted about way more childish things. Selling said painting, or a series of paintings in that vein, sure. But making it into "mass" (i know it's small batch) produced apparel for others to wear? Don't cut yourself on all that edge, Ville. It's angsty stuff like this that gives artists a bad name. 

 

But, who am I to say. The second something is called art, it's subjective, and this isn't a class nor am I his professor.

So, so much more eloquently stated than my first post in this thread.

Being miserable at work, regardless the "large and big contract", does not equate to being in jail. No way, no shape, no how. Ridiculous.

Plus, show me someone who's never been miserable at a job during their career and I'll introduce you to the Easter Bunny.

Yep, it's not art because he might actually be making money from it. ;)

 

I know we all want our athletes shallow and materialist, and maybe we all would accept it more if he was sitting by the pool sipping Cristal out of some hottie's navel while wearing his clothes, but I have no problem with him actually trying to do something after hockey and even after making all that money.

 

Plus, I think those would make a great stage shirt.

Yeah my sympathy goes to the people who do real work for a living,hate their jobs but do it because they have a family to support. The people making 35-50K a year to get up and do something they hate!

Plus if the turned around and made sweaters looking for sympathy, nobody would buy them! Truth is I had sympathy for the guy at one time, mostly when he was being bashed. Now I feel like he can lick a stick.

Life is ###### hard. I make good money which equates to a decent life. I'm one lucky chump. I grew up in border town Quebec/Akwesasne/Adirondacks. I've seen the very poor of the poor. My Dad was tops on the list for the DEC to contact for unwanted roadkill. Anyone that fails to delight in their great fortune to be wealthy can go lick a stick. They can also go ###### themselves.

This looks like a 5 year got inspired by Radiohead album art and put his sad crayons to work.

 

Jail? Your experience was jail? Nobody was stopping him from dissolving his contract and walking away if it was so bad, which it wasn't, because he was making 4.5 million a year to play hockey.

I agree with you, but I would be more than willing to be absolutely miserable at work for 3 years and $27 million bucks.

I would love to read this thread if Ville was snubbing his nose at us saying,"Ya know what, I worked my ass of to make it to the NHL, but sorry/not sorry it didn't work out Buffalo, cuz I GOTS PAID, B!TCHES!!!"

 

The guy actually feels bad about failing to bring a little more meaning to our miserable lives and ya'll roast him.

I would actually find the above attitude to be less insufferable were he to deploy it, in all honesty. Because, you know, honesty.

Do you actually know how he feels? Maybe he's just trying to squeeze a little extra profit out of a situation he found ######, while publicly crapping on an entire city through his art.

I'd rather a guy say "I GOTS PAID!", at least we'd know he's definitely not full of shite.

Thats kind of what I took away from it as well. Things didn't work out for him. He's allowed to express it. Doesn't hurt my feelings in any way.

If he feels bad he didn't contribute he could always come back and donate his time and money to charity. That would be appreciated more than whatever that was.

So now you know what I'm thinking? ;)

Maybe you are right and I'd feel the opposite if it was the other way around. I can't know for sure I suppose. I'm never going to meet him and my opinion on his personality in the end is irrelevant.

He just rubs me the wrong way, I guess.

Edit: Maybe it's because he never responded to the thousands of fan letters I sent him.

It really is amazing how out of touch people can be. A millionaire seeking sympathy for underperformance from blue collar people. Yikes.
