All - I'm a lifelong Hawk fan and self-admitted LGW troll (like the guy who cruised over to the Hawk board). I've been watching the Hawks since I was 6 years old - 36 years now - and am by no means a bandwagoner. As a matter of fact, every true Hawk fan I know cannot stand the bandwagoners that hopped on around '07-ish. I usually ask one of these people if the name Alpo Suhonen means anything to them. I ALWAYS get a blank stare and consider them weeded out. That said, I and every other true Hawk fan I've spoken to has the utmost respect for the Red Wing organization. I mean, how can you really detest what they've done? My "hatred", if you can even call it, that is out of pure jealousy of what the Wings have accomplished and continue to accomplish over the past two decades. Add to the fact that I have NEVER seen the Wings show up other teams or showboat and I'd like to think the same about the Hawks (Vancouver, on the other had, is totally different story). Take my post for what it's worth - the real Hawk fans don't hate Wings at all and appreciate the rivalry.
