I couldn't believe last nights game or the Nashville fans. the worst game of the year most defiantly and the predators fans where screaming "You Suck!" keep in mind half the fans there where red wings fans. i hate watching the wings in Nashville because Nashville Predator fans have no respect for the game and they think that the game revolves around fighting and violence. they need to keep in mind that if it werent for the huge red wing fan base here that Nashville would have never been a team. ranting.gif

haha easy though dude. if any nashville fan would say anything about the wings suck all you would have to say is "and how many stanley cups has your team won?" haha they cant say anything to that

Stanley Cups?

Those idiots can't even win a road game in the playoffs in their 10 year history.

I hope they move out of that town one day just so their pathetic fans have something real serious to whine and ***** about.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I honestly don't care about the chants, they do it every game to every team. They say the same exact thing even if we are winning 6-1 in Nashville. Get over it!

This thread isn't about the annoying chants, everybody is pissed about the loss. It's a regular season game. Win some, you loose some. Again Get over it!

The wings got embarrassed, 15$ says the last two games against the preds will be the best of the remaining regular season games.

Exactly. Every fan base has different chants they do. Like when we say "Tur-co" whenever we play Dallas. Or the Hank chant when Z scores a goal.

I don't view the "you suck" chant any differently than that.

A new Lemieux-McCarty fight, as seen by internet forum posters.

Lemieux cheapshots a player with his walker, drawing the ire of D-Mac, who hobbles over. They draw their canes, salute, and cross them, then proceed to repeatedly whack eachother over the heads while hanging onto the bench with their other hands for balance. D-Mac then hits Lemieux's hip, which gives out, Lemieux feebly falls to the ground, crumpling as D-Mac continues to land barely noticeable Yoda-esque cane strikes. Lemieux's age begins catching up to him, crying "what a world, what a world..!" as he melts into a puddle of goo.

Where does everybody get the idea that Detroit was an original six team? The NHL was formed in 1917 and Detroit didn't come into existance until 1926 when they bought the Victoria Cougars (?). Then it was still 10 years before Detroit won a Stanley Cup.

As for the move to Hamilton Ontario - Jim Ballsillie shot himself in the foot with that one. He set up a website for the "Hamilton" Predators and starting taking downpayments for season tickets before he had ever presented an offer to the NHL. And the goofy people up there actually gave him money!! And as someone said before, most of the season tickets belong to individuals, not corporations.

I was at the game last night, and the fans were great to us. I just see the chants as fun jabbing. Sorta like your momma jokes between friends.

At the end of the game, all the Pred fans around me shook my hand and said "At least you guys will be in the playoff's"

Classy group.

They had a great lead-up to the game on the Jumbo-tron showing both teams goals and hits and was very un-biased. Got the crowd pumped up. I would love to find a copy of that.

Oh, and give up the Redneck thing. Many, of your fellow Red-wing fans live in Tennessee.


I agree, it never ceases to amaze me how often you hear I can't believe hockey can't get more exposure or be on national tv/ESPN more often - and then say that any teams not in the northern (and more specifically north eastern) part of the U.S.A don't deserve to have teams, don't have real hockey fans, and are ignorant/don't understand the game.

Also, I have heard much worse things chanted at Flyers and Rangers games but no one creates a thread about how they don't deserve to have a hockey team. Furthermore, this forum is full of people who complain about how dead the Joe is and then complain because they Preds are rowdy at their games. Who cares? Seriously, the Preds had a good game, the Wings actually did suck pretty bad that game, the Preds fans had fun at that game and enjoyed a memory making game for their team - but the Wings will be in the hunt for the Cup again this year. BUT it is ridiculous to say that the Preds were any less classy or more crass than most fans - they are a bunch of people who love their team, city, state and have on blinders for them - much like most people here (myself included).

Detroit is, officially, considered a member of the "original six". The teams were the only 6 teams in the league between 1942 and 1967. My guess would be that due to the long stretch of time when those were the only teams in existence, the nickname was earned.

I love the Prednecks fans. Atleast they're loud and cheering the entire game, unlike half the Joe.

I'm goin' deeper underground. There's too much panic in this town.

Basically a copy-paste job from another thread similar...

I went to the game. Despite the crappy outcome obviously, I had a blast going to Nashville and being in downtown.

The generalizations in here with Predator fans as hicks or rednecks can't be further from the truth, and it's a joke. It is defiintely a more country atmosphere than normal but the amount of people I saw in cowboy style were fairly small.

In terms of them thinking we are rivals, what do you expect? They haven't been in the league that long, Detroit plays in the same division, we've played them a few playoff series, they're trying to find some identity. Nothing wrong with this.

As for the whole YOU SUCK chants, I'm sorry, but complain about something more important. They can say plenty of things worse. It's just something they do to get jacked up and the like. They aren't acting like a'holes towards players or fans of other teams, they aren't purposefully harming people, let them do there thing. There's nothing wrong with getting involved and making noise and the like.

Now, before people say that I am claiming Nashville as a hockey mecca, I'm not. I'm saying, no more or less, that the experience in Nashville and at the game were fun, the fans I came in contact with were cool and gracious, and a lot of the stuff in here dumping on Nashville is overblown.

I know Detroit is an Original-6 team with a lot of history and tradition, but the Red Wings are Holier than Thou attitude and dumping on the littler guys with less history is tiring and ridiculous in here.

Pretty much agree 100%.

Folks were very nice, & I met quite a few folks whom were pretty hockey savy (to my surprise I might add)...Loud building, great atmosphere; too bad the Wings stunk - oh well.

Consider the years 4 of the other 6 "original six" teams came to be (1924-26), including the Wings, and you have a very obvious answer as to why the Wings are in the original six. It would have been rather dumb to go with the "original one" or "original two". No other team even came along that exists today until the 60s. So yeah, nearly 40 years of original six means it's a pretty deserved name.

All the "Original 6" teams didn't come into play during the same year. Nothing to get too worked up or technical about.

What's also hypocritical about it is that you probably have people in here who on some level are proud to be Detroit or Michigan natives and get up in arms with the false perception that crime is everywhere there or gangbangers or whatever. Yet it's all right to stereotype everybody down as hicks and rednecks? Kinda convenient I guess when you (not you specifically Frozen-Man) aren't the one getting dumped on. rolleyes.gif

I thought I read you were going to this game but didn't? I must've misread. If that's the case we should've made plans to chit chat briefly.

In truth I was yelling it at the TV...I bleed Red and White, but last night was pathetic, and should be used to show the wings that they are beatable and they need to play good hockey no matter what team they play.

Kind of funny this came up...just the other day, my gf was going off on how it's dumb that it's called the Original Six when the US members weren't around when the league was founded, and therefore not "original."

Anyway, I think Nashville has great fans. Whenever we go in there, I know we're in for a world of hostility, and that's the way it should be. They're 28th in the league in attendance, so hopefully a few more start showing up for the non-Wings games, but they certainly have my respect.

I think it was on this thread that someone mentioned wanting the pregame video about the rivalry. This is one that someone got on their video camera - it's not the best but it is the video. If you want the real thing, check out the Preds TV link on our boards. The Preds front office said they are trying to get the rights to post it there. So check there in 3-5 days for the real thing. Hopefully this will hold you over.
