Almost all of the Sharks fans I ran across last series were rude, hostile, childish, ignorant, uninformed, and possessed of an enormous case of homerism. They are the worst fans I've interacted with thus far in my hockey-watching career, eclipsing even Penguins and Blackhawks fans in how unpleasant they are to discuss anything with and in the sheer volume of unprovoked hostility I saw them issue towards Wings fans and the Red Wings in general. Further, they cheer for a team that is highly unsportsmanlike---the Sharks willingly and deliberately dive and embellish on a regular basis.

I'm glad to see them lose.

The Hawks are laughing all the way to the Finals knowing they won't have to face the Wings to get the Cup. Thanks Refs!!!!!!!!! :ranting:

The Sharks have met their quota for the season.

They didn't choke in the 1st round and got past the 2nd round as well, beating the Wings. Their fans and team are already satisfied and are playing like it.

Chicago on the other hand got to the semis last year and lost. For them this season was Cup or bust, and this team was playing with that pressure and expectation all season. They clearly look more hungry and have set their goals higher.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Personally, I can't stomach the thought of Hossa, Kane and Quenneville winning the Cup.

I'd have preferred Montreal to any of the other three teams left but they're going to need to score a damned goal at some point.

Really?

1) The Shark's themselves have no control over who becomes a fan of their team.
2)A small sample size of fan's does not warrant generalizations
3)You act as if no one on the Wing's Roster has never dived. A few years ago Franzen was pretty bad.
4) A great deal of the hostility you speak of can also be said for you in the Game Chats, as you constantly asked if Sharksfan was happy and proud of a team of divers, as if he has any control over that.

lol @ the Negs. I can tell some people are still bitter

goin for flyers, san jose never deserved to beat us and chicago is a bunch of punks, I think it is funny how when we got Hossa last year everyone went off about how we were buying a cup and didnt deserve to win a cup, and chicago does it and they are just a great team building a franchise the right way

I can't believe I am saying this but I find myself actually rooting for Chicago. Going into the playoffs I wanted anyone but Chicago to win the west but the more I watch them the more I respect them. I am especially impressed with Toews, he has become one of my favorite non red wings.

Toews is cool, he has always seemed more mature then his age dictates, but the rest of the team (mostly) are a bunch of college frat boy pieces of crap always running thier mouths, I am not taking away from the talent on the team,they have a great group of incredibly talented players the problem is they know it, they just seem to lack respect for anyone, at least that is how they come across to me when i see them play.

We should form a support group. My rooting for the Hawks is completely visceral. It is beyond comprehension or justification.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

i also find it amusing how Pavelski is no longer clutch. the thing is, he never really was clutch when half his goals in the playoffs were scored on 5 on 3s.

its funny that Sharks fans were making Fail avatars when the playoffs started.

This is so true. I go to school in San Francisco, and of course this time of year the thousand of Sharks fans who tell me all year no one gives a S&$% about hockey come out the cuts and start talking crap like they are huge hockey fans. I went to game 5 in San Jose when the wings were eliminated. Their fans were extremely rude and hostile ( I even had a mom telling her 3 year old kid to punch me) they were border line physical. They are incompetent to the rules of hockey, and it made me laugh every time a shark player hit fell to hear the entire crowd booo as if there was a penalty. Being a wings fan in cali the last team I want to see win is the sharks. Especially the way they had to beat the wings last series it made me sick. I rather see a team win it the right way even if it is chicago.

Whatever... all fan bases have some sort of Posted Image to them. Sharks fans are less informed, yes I will grant that. San Jose people don't even really care about having a team there. Chicago fans are plugeroos but are passionate (when they are winning) so that brings it back to being plugs. I am personally not LOL'ing or pissed the Sharks are losing. Its 2-0 and not done yet, kind of. Toews is a great Captain, probably one of the better leaders in the league but again because of sheer principle I cannot root for those dick cheeseburgers. So either way why care whats happening to Sharks and the Hawks have no real road block in the way to the Cup....Other than Hossa.

It's hard to watch these playoffs.

I don't want to see Kane win. Nor the Hawks because of old principle.
I don't want to see Pronger win because he's a ******.
I don't want to see meathead Joe win the cup either.
Montreal... I mean, 24 cups... Weak, man.

Oh well, at least the Pens are out.

Classic San Jose. Almost get knocked out by thef****** Avs without Hedjuk and Mueller, but then play there asses off to beat us (and if not for PP's and Jimmy in games not 5+6, they wouldnt have) and now they are getting totally outclassed by Chicago. Nabakovs diving all the over the crease just makes him look like an idiot when it isnt called, and a team with solid goaltending and a PK to speak of can beat San Jose. We didnt have it this year, but Chicago does. Wouldnt be surprised to see them swept to be honest.

You must have not met too many other fan bases like you claim to think Sharks fans are that bad. Did you go to a game in the Tank? Try hitting Philly or Chitown with your Wings jersey on...
Most of the Sharks fans that post here are pretty nice and respectable - even during our series with them.

I actually kind of respect that they follow their team even though they come up short repeatedly.
I don't like a few of their players (Thornton ie) but I don't blame their fans for that.

I can't think of any reason to want the Hawks to win - like someone above pointed out - can't cheer for Hossa, Quenneville, Kane, and Co.
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

Can I join, too? I'm having the same conflicting thoughts as you guys...I like some of their players, especially Toews, like everybody said, but I can't stand some of their players, especially Kane, like everybody said, and even though I spend most of the year ragging on them, I think they really deserve to win more than the other 3 teams still in it. Help, I'm being torn in two here!

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.
