For the last three, not Bahstin Celtics, New England Patriots and Manchester United?


What is this "Celtics" you speak of? The only thing I ever hear about is some "Sell-ticks".
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Heard it from some "Bird" on her way to the mall to pick up Rosetta Stone.

I find sometimes during the playoffs it's tough to be a Wings fan just because expectations are so high, and when we don't win there's so much criticism from the media, fans of other teams, and even Wings fans.

However once the playoffs are over, and when I go through all my Championship gear, collectibles, and games from 1997, 1998, 2002, and 2008, I'm reminded how luck I am to see 6 Western Conference Championships, and 4 Stanley Cup Championships.
Lets Go:
Red Wings
Tigers
Roughriders
Lions
Spartans
Pistons

I'm pretty sure just about every fan here has high expectations of the team, deservedly so. Although, if Puck Daddy read the Red Wings forum, he might come to a different interpretation of "happy", to "schizo" or "old man's bitching relentlessly syndrome".

its a cool analysis, but to imply a purely empirical breakdown of playoff success directly correlates to how easy it is to be a fan of a team is simply absurd. had they simply titled the article 'most playoff success in recent years' it would have been great.

but the instant you bring in the factor of fans and emotions it is no longer a simple statistical breakdown. expectations play a factor. regular season success not leading to playoff success plays a factor. not being able to take the next step in the playoffs is a factor.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

What do the Lakers and Steelers have in common that the Celtics and Patriots don't? Simple answer in regards to each team's superstars and their predatory ways.

As far Barca and ManU...meh, it's just soccer :P

How peculiar. I've been rooting for the Lions for almost a half century, and as long as you know which slogan to say at which time, you're fine. For those who don't follow the Lions, the slogans are: "We're not mathematically eliminated yet!" and "There's always next year!"

Root for the Lions until their season is over (mathematical elimination), and then it's time for the Wings to start playing. In a good year, one doubles up a bit, but since the Lions only play once a week, and almost always on a Sunday, it rarely causes conflict.

Not to mention that the Lions bumper sticker makes a great theft deterrent.
