How does your hatred for the Avs compare to your hatred for the Rangers F.C.?
I'd find it difficult to believe that the rival a team in America that you have no real connection but decided you liked and started following, would inspire more hatred than a home grown rival of a team you've (I'm assuming here) followed all your life.
I now live where Texas A&M University if located, so I cheer for them. And I cheer against University of Texas. But I don't hate Texas, just like I'm not an A&M diehard. And even if I live here the rest of my life, I'd never be able to hate Texas as much as I hate...loathe the university of Michigan.
No offense blak, but I dont think you that you have the right to judge glasgow's hatred of the avs just because hes a fan in scotland and doesnt live in detroit. If he is a red wings fan, then hes aware of the history as he posted, and therefore can grow to dislike the avalanche fans.
