Just like to take a few seconds of your time, and say hello to everyone on this forum. I'm Ryan out of Holland, MI, Currently on my 2nd tour in Iraq. I just happened to stumble across this awesome wings forum. I'm by no means going to sit here and blow smoke up your behind and say I'm the BIGGEST wings fan because thats a lie. However I am defiantly a hudge fan and in other words i love the wings just as much as the BIGGEST fan does but why i say that is theres someone out there with more wings gear or merchandise than me, hahaha. I was able to catch a wings game on my two weeks of leave for the first time in 3 years since joining the army. To bad they lost in a shootout to the AV's but it was just an amazing feeling to get back into the joe and be in the atmosphere again after being out for so long.

Now on to my topic, I've been on many forums before and I'm guessing theres a rule post somewhere on here. With that said I'm more than likely breaking a rule as we speak for posting in the wrong section. I would like to know if there's someone that can point me in the right direction.. ThanksPosted Image

also I hope to be able to get some sweet picks with my wings gear over here and share my experience with you all. We might not be able to play much ice hockey but we still hold the fort down with a little ball n stick game lmfao.

To my knowledge the only rule is to flame Crosby whenever possible.:hehe:

edit: though you won't find it in writing.

Enforcers, we hate all of our goalies (like most Red Wings fans ;) and maybe some more enforcer love too.

First off, welcome to the board and try not to take anything here too seriously, opinions are like... well, you get the point... and we have lots of them here...

One of the best ones to add, that isn't really posted in the rules boldly enough in my mind is to leave politics out, they don't belong here...

With that said, regardless of ANYONE'S stance on the wars, politics, etc... our soldiers are brave, courageous and noble men and women, who are selflessly giving up a lot and sacrificing sometimes even more. As I've said from day one, you can disagree with a war or a cause and still support those that don't have a choice in what battle they fight, but are doing it rather for the ideal and the message behind the uniform - National pride and love for one's country (even if they might not always agree with the leaders running said country)

Thank you for giving your time to our county and be safe over there!

Finally, since a link to the actual forum guidelines was already posted, let me give you a few unwritten ones:
- There is only a small handful of people here that use logic
- A vast majority don't understand how the CBA works
- Hot button topics - Goalies and enforcers, don't start a topic about these categories, it gets out of hand quickly
- Don't make line-combo threads, they're obnoxious and subjective at best
- Don't suggest a trade that would only work on the EA NHL franchise and not in real life
- McCrimmon sucks
- Bettman should be hanged, drawn and quartered
- NHL "discipline" is a joke

I think that covers most of it!

Once again, welcome!

Welcome! Already a booster I see!

Never feed the trolls.
gonna have to brush up on your enforcer debating skills.
give a plus for anything you find funny.
you have to be aware some posters are sensitive.
up above the forums is where all the fun happens.
Never show a picture of yourself or 55fan will be your biggest fan.
gonna have to make sure you pick either Filppula or Hudler.
let your guard down, and some of the more eloquent (Electrophile) posters will pick apart an argument.
you should make sure you always stick by your favorite player
down in the watercooler you'll find a lot of the boosters
Never claim loyalties to the Pens or Hawks
gonna be able to stick to your guns?
run to capgeek.com or hockeyreference.com if you need some quick info on players
around the playoffs are where you'll find the quickest mood swings
and don't take anyone too seriously after a loss
desert any logic if trolled by a Hawks or Nucks fan.
you should post here as much as you can and give us updates on yourself in the watercooler
Never get too down after a loss, there's always next game!
gonna have to make sure you find some good streams over there, myp2p.eu or also try drumnj, he has the best streams.
make time to catch highlights if you can.
you should always root for the Wings, even when they are losing
cry if we lose, by laugh and cheer while we win!
Never get sucked into an enforcer debate, it'll only end in tears.
gonna have to say, this is the best Wings site on the interwebz
say what's on your mind with conviction and no one will tell you that you are wrong
goodbye's are only in June after Lidstrom shakes Bettman's hand.
Never play the Larry Murphy hotdog game.
gonna make sure you have a kick ass obnoxious avatar
tell all your friends to be Wing's fans.
a little advice, Wings are the best team in the world, ask Perry Cox
lie if you don't know something and make it sound real!
and if you get caught lying...lie some more!
hurt any Hawks fans you see there!
you should read the first word of every line here ;)

...or don't be aware, whatever.

Don't feel like you need to walk on eggshells for the the extreme minority of overly sensitive people that just love to get offended by everything they see or read though. Its a forum on the internet. If someone gets offended by words typed by some anonymous person, f*** 'em. They probably shouldn't be on the internet anyways if thats the way they act.

Speak your mind. Say whatever you feel. Have fun. Don't worry about sensitive, sheltered ******* getting offended by some words on the interweb. Thats their problem, not yours.

It was more to the point that some of the sensitive users will spout off with asinine comments if you hurt their feelings and it's better just to pretned like they don't exist lol

Welcome to the boards! As posted earlier, the official Forum Rules can be found here. Follow those rules, and pretty much ignore all the rules the rest of these jokers are saying.

You did post this in the wrong section, but don't worry. That happens to alot of people (my very first post here was in the wrong section, if I remember correctly). So I'll move it to the right place.

Thank you for your service!





And Konnan. I don't know whether to facepalm, laugh, plus you, or warn you for that. That has to be the most bizarre, yet funny, post I've seen in awhile.
