Oh How I Hate the Capitals

You have no idea who you are dealing with here (in terms of Carman's attention whoring and trolling, not Frozen-Man). He brings any backlash towards him amongst himself and pretty much all of it is warranted, he doesn't know when to stop.

Nice double standard there. I defend Crosby, I don't attack people. My post in this thread had nothing to do with Crosby yet some Wings fan feels that he needs to bring him up. I find this funny and it doesn't bother me. Unfortunatley I'm a sucker for a good discussion and it seems that's not liked here...

Anyways onto the Bruce vs. Crosby whining thing. Crosby is a young kid and Bruce is an almost 60 year old man if you cannot see the diferrence there I'm sorry.

And my point is proven. You may have been unfairly attacked, but you bring it among yourself given your posting history regarding this. And you don't know when to stop, or you do and you just enjoy the show and continuously getting dumped on. I don't feel sorry for you one bit.

I agree wholeheartedly with this post. I'm Michigan born and bred and moved to D.C. in 2006 ... so I have witnessed the same transition. Back then, the games were a pleasure to go to -- nice, diverse crowd, decent product on the ice.

Now, everything about it is just irritating. I've been taunted unmercifully when I go in Wings gear to Detroit-Washington games, to the point this year that a guy stood about four inches behind me while I used the urinal and trash talked the entire time about the Wings. Everything in there MUST BE LOUD. The PA guy's voice is about 50 decibles too high, the music is obnoxious, the goal horn is almost ear-splitting. The crowd boos EVERYTHING that doesn't go Washington's way, all the while maintaining their belief that this Capitals franchise is somehow destined to be a dynasty.

It is absolutely horrible. If we hadn't played the Pens in the last two Cup finals, the Capitals would be far and away my least favorite Eastern Conference team. Even as it stands, it's close right now. I love the NHL, but won't go down there for games unless Detroit's in town.

Yet you love Crosby? I'm not one to say that Crosby is not talented, he is exceedingly talented BUT in my mind there is doubt he is a whiner. Remember when he asked the refs to make an announcement for people to stop throwing hats onto the ice after Ovechkin's goal?

If you are going to be a ****** and attempt to belittle his opinion based on specific players he watches, then do it in a thread involving the player in question.

If you really can't help it, then just ignore him. It makes your life much easier and everyone else doesn't have to watch you get all pissy because Carman the "Crosby troll" said something you don't like.

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not. Hell does anyone know when you're being serious? Like it or not you've built a reputation on here and you have to live with it. If you're really that passionate about discussion then you would simply hit the reset button, drop the shtick and get a new user name.

Love everything about the Caps and the way they play...

You should go to the next Wings/Caps game in DC...make sure to wear your Wings' gear, count how many times you get called a ****** before you even make it into the stadium(don't bring kids). Seriously, I've been to games in Boston, NY, even Nashville...DC fans are a joke and sooo bitter. You might respect their team but they sure as hell don't respect yours.

IMO, i was fine with what you said earlier about Bruce, and he is a whiner, almost as bad as Therrien. Also might add Quenneville onto that list too... but as far as Crosby's whining? He doesn't hide under the "kid" cloak for me anymore, 5 years in the NHL and he's learned his way around it. He has good moments and bad moments, unfortunately the bad moments are what we tend to remember about the people we are not fans of.

I'd rather see a coach like Babcock who never whines, but still finds a way to make it known that he doesn't agree with certain calls. Unfortunately there's an arrogance in the Capitals playing style, and it will bite back when they start playing better teams who play defence instead of resorting to their game (something I felt Pittsburgh did last year in that series). Capitals should find their way to a Cup final in the next few years, but no guarantees they'll win it unless they find that defensive game. Boudreau may not be the one to instill that type of game into them, he's been there too long to change it up all of a sudden.

Toronto is generally a safe place to wear wings gear (I've never been asked to fight anyways) to see a game but two years ago now I was crossing the street and a cop used his PA in his car to tell me the Wings are '***'. Surprised me that a police officer would slander a team with a word like '***'.

i went to the game in toronto during the hall of fame weekend and was met with the most insanely stupid heckling i've ever heard in my life.

leaf fan #1: wings SUCK!

me: do you even remember 1967?

LF1: ... they suck!

me: what? i asked if you remembere--

LF1: yeah, well you suck cock!

then, i will regret, for the rest of my life, not recording this guy:

leaf fan #2: hey! wings SUCK! trade osgood for a bag of pucks! your organization is a JOKE!

me: you clearly do not ha--

LF2: YEAH, WALK AWAY *GIGGLE!!*

i wish i could watch this over and over again; the audacity it takes for a leaf fan to call our organization a joke is just so immense.

yeah, toronto's got a rich hockey history, but it probably contains the league's collection of the top three dumbest fans. for the record, i was born and raised in toronto, so i am very, very familiar with the amount of stupidity that goes on here. of course, every sports team does have its group of idiot fans...

nothing like uneducated and opinionated reprobates at a hockey game.

The good thing about the years I went to University in Toronto (besides a degree) was all the NHL hockey I got to see. Every night I went to the ACC I saw at least half of an NHL game (the Leafs look a lot more like AHLers on any given night).

TBH about he fans in Toronto.. some are ridiculous homers who can't admit that they are the worst post-lockout team, others actually know that the organization aside from financial successes, they are a joke. This includes the writers and even their marketing direction. One of their guys named Shum (in Leafs marketing) is probably one of the best sports conversationalists I've ever met. He's worked for the Stars, Canucks and Leafs, as well as the Blue Jays and Yankees. He watches the Game at 'Il Gatto Nero' every night on College street. If you like a good sports chat (especially hockey) talk to him some night. He'll be the only Asian guy at the bar and he'll probably have Yankees paraphernalia on him.

The hatred is a bit strong. I can understand not liking a team dedicated to offense only with obnoxious, cocky fans but to have a blinding, rage-like hatred is a bit much.

AUGGGH!!! LET'S ACTIVATE AWESOME-TYPING AND AUGMENT OUR POST COUNTS!!!

AWESOME TYPING POST COUNT AUGMENTING ACTIVATED.

On a more serious note I have very carefully observed this change from a nice fan base to a massive clusterf*** of bandwagon fans throughout the years. Quite sad if you think about it. Also, I guess it is a good think the NHL does not market Datsyuk and Zetterberg more. We know they kick everyone's asses and that's all that matters.

AT BEING BAD

I think that Carman's healthy scratch and the McCrimmon pep talk have definitely done him some good. Although he has had a couple bonehead plays tonight, they haven't been game changing. Remember, this is a tough Caps thread he is up against tonight. Bad habits don't disappear overnight, and this is a step in the right direction. Atta boy!

Have no idea where the poster is coming from.

Red Wings fans can make a great case for hating the Penguins. But I find little fault with the Caps. In fact, if the Wings don't win the Cup - I'd just assume the Caps take it home. I like their coach and think Ovie>>>>Sid.

There are far more teams I would put on my "dislike" list than the Caps.

The only thing that might rile up some bad feelings vs. the Caps will be a final series between the Wings-Caps. Let's hope one of these days soon....

It's easy to improve when my inspiration in life is Sidney Crosby.

Maybe the portion of his thread title with the "I" in it could be a clue? ("Oh How I Hate the Capitals")

He's not asking you to share his feelings, only sharing his own (and well, I might add).

I actually like watching the Caps play now. If there isn't a Wings game on, I'll usually see if the Caps are playing. They're a really talented team that's fun to watch. That doesn't mean I necessarily like them or root for them, I just appreciate an entertaining team. And hey, at least they aren't Pittsburgh.

:lol: I have actually found your last couple comments to be rather enjoyable :clap: I also think its pretty funny how you don't even have to bring up Crosby in the threads anymore, people associate you with Crosby no matter what you post about, classical conditioning at its finest, Pavlov would be proud!

You seriously need to have a Crosby+love avatar, just to draw more attention to yourself.

Would make these threads much more fun to watch.

FOUND ONE!
