# Thread: ok, I am terrible at math, but

1. ## ok, I am terrible at math, but

this just doesn't sound right. 82 games in a hockey season right. Chris Simon was suspended for 30 games. My bf said "so he was suspended for three eighths of the season."

um... huh? how is that possible? there are only 82 games in the season.. 30+30 is 60 already..one more 30 would be 90... three eighths just doesn't sound right. Or is that correct? Like I said, I'm no good at math, never have been, but it just doesn't sound right.

Can someone clarify? Is three eights correct?

2. 3/8 equals approx. 30/82...essentially the same ratio

3. My bf is sitting here gloating now. Thanks

Remember, if 3/8ths = 30 then 1/8th = 10 (and 8/8ths = 80), you were multiplying by 3 instead of dividing.

Yeah acorrding to your calculation it would be 30 of 90 games

which equates to 3 of every 9 3/9ths < then break that down to the lowest common denominator= 1/3rd of the season

*3/8 is more than 1/3rd of the season

the bf is CORRECT!!!! now you know what you have to do!!

Btw he deserves the suspension what ******* g00n manuever that was

does he hold the record for most suspensions?

6. I'm not sure but I know he's got the two longest suspensions ever - 25 and 30 games. and yeah, it WAS a goon move.. I don't know what his problem is. He needs to chill the **** out.

Sharks vs Phoenix tonight (thurs night) - last three games we shut them out, all three games

7. LOL Chris Simon.

8. 42

9. I would love to see how would he fight against Zdeno Chara

Size: 6'9, 255 lbs
Position: Defenseman

10. I didn't get to see the play when he tried to hurt Ruutu, does anyone have a link?

Did Georges Laraque go after him? would be a great brawl!

Forget it, i youtubed it and saw it. What a dirty piece of filth. Doesn't deserve to be in the NHL. When are they going to have enough and just say 'okay you are done'. Idiot players belong in the NFL, and NBA, NOT the NHL.

He is pathetic.
