If you were an actual Red Wings fan you'd know there's no such thing as 'second favorite'

there can be only one... as they'd say in highlander

Living in Arizona has made me adopt the Coyotes as my second favorite team. My roommate is Buffalo guy and I will root for the Sabres from time to time. But, should one dare play my Red Wings they will lose my support faster than Poland lost to Germany in WWII.
40 for life.

To be honest, if I went to a rivals city, and tossed an Octopus onto the ice deep in enemy territory during a game that we were winning, the LEAST I could hope for is to get the finger.

Nothing is more gratifying than pissing off the enemy, and then loving every minute of it. And when they respond like that, you know you've completed a job well done :)

God forbid a thread exists that doesn't turn into a Carman pens-caps debate.

OH NOES! Someone flipped a Wings fan the finger! What is the world coming to?!?!?!?!?!?


You don't think a Wings fan has at any time flipped the bird to a fan of a rival team?


Why has this man gotten negative rep? He states the truth... You flip us off and we shall return the favor in due time my friends :hehe:

How did I bait at all?

It's not like there are many youtube videos of fans being "unclassy", that was just the first one that came to mind.

I didn't say again regarding pens-caps...

Nice straw-man argument.

Hey man, get your own shtick! ;)

Glad your the real fan here. Guess me investing thousands of dollars into Red Wing games/jerseys etc. are all wasted because "I'm not a real fan".

Grow up.


Yeah guys... I mean you can definitely question Carman's taste, but he's still a loyal Wings fan in the end. Like people say, though, there's no accounting for taste. That must be why he's willing to support those despicable Penguins on the side. :lol:

Al approves of this thread
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

Just a s***ty human being, not a classless fan.

I'll probably get negative votes for this, but my second favorite baseball team is the Yankees, and my second favorite Football team is the Cowboys.


Being a Yankees fan is unforgivable. I'd imagine you got behind the Yankees and Cowboys as a kid, though, when we all wanted to back winners. I was huge Yankees fan the season leading up to that '96 (?) World Series win - but I've just grown to hate them. Not as much as I hate the Red Sox, though. They've become a Championship-purchaser just like the Yanks, yet pretend like they aren't.

But I digress.

Having more than 1 favorite team really isn't - especially when they don't generally compete. As Carman said, being a Pens fan and a Wings fan was never an issue for him until recently. In addition to the Tigers, I also love the Cubs - they just happened to play an interleague series last year. My friends and I went and I wore my Cubs shirt to get a rise out of people, even though I was perfectly happy to see the Tigers take the game and the series.

I personally can't really get behind another hockey team on any level other than jersey appreciation, but that's just me. There's absolutely nothing wrong with following or rooting for more than one team.

This board is too obsessed with the word classy. Hockey isn't supposed to be classy


At least everyone has somewhat cooled down with that word. When I first joined these boards, 3 out of 4 posts threads included the word classy.

Somebody need to get the video of the guy so i can laugh some more of his idiotic way of flipping the bird.

That would be really classy of whoever has the class to get that classy video of a not so classy Coyotes fan, so i could be less classy and laugh my classy ass of :rolleyes:

Here's my story...

Actually I've been a Tigers and Baseball fan since a kid, mid-80s, I'm 33. As I got into the other sports, I naturally became fan of the Detroit teams. With the Tigers tough times from the mid 90's to the mid 00's I appreciated what the Yankees were doing with ONeill, Williams, Jeter, Tino, Rivera, Pettitte, etc.. Even though they had a big payroll, they never had the best player or pitcher in the league. After 2001 they went crazy with the free agents, so just like the rest of Detroit I was thrilled to see the Tigers beat them in 4 games in the 2006 ALDS.

The Cowboys, I really became a big fan of Troy Aikman, plus the Lions just plan suck, but I'm still a Lions fan! Funny we're talking about this, today I just bought the book called Boys Will Be Boys telling about the inside dirt of the 1992-1996 Cowboys teams.

Basketball, I'm not a big enough fan of the game to have a second NBA team. Go Pistons!
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans

LOL...I personally think those chants are idioitic. It would be one thing if Howard was getting shelled, but the game was tied 1-1 when they started piping up...

correct my "heckle ettiquite" if i'm wrong, but i think the "hoooo-waaaard" (or insert goalie name here) chant supposed to be chimed in when your team is actually in the offensive zone? seemed like phoenix was always chanting it when we were on the attack!
strikes me as logical that the chant should come up when it actually might have some kind of effect...

i could be wrong. i'm told i usually am...
RAISE #16 TO THE RAFTERS!!!

i think, therefore i'm rare.

I like the finger. Direct and to the point. Somebody flips you off, you flip them off back, you're even, you go on with our lives. No one-upping necessary, and consequently no escalation to violence. Well, usually anyway. I mean, if you start talking, it's all over with. The trick is to keep it nonverbal.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,
They tell me that a Red Wing always flies.

Do people who throw octopi at The Joe get thrown out too?
