Pity, I liked watching him play. Best of luck Marty.


In Topic: Tampa Bay Lightning dress code for fans

I can't remember now, but didn't some team limit their ticket sales when they played detroit in the past.  Obviously Tampa did it this year, but for some reason when I heard about that I thought it wasn't the first time.  Maybe Chicago in '13?  I just can't remember...any help?

 

I think it was Nashville.

You should have put on a Chelios Wings jersey.  That would have done it.  

 

 

No kidding.

While TB's policy is nothing short of retarded - has anyone here other than myself been to a game in Chicago while wearing your Red Wing jersey?

 

Hawks fans can be pretty classless turds toward visiting fans.

 

I remember a few years ago I was at Joe Louis West as I like to call the Hawks' barn, wearing my Yzerman jersey and a Hawk fan yelled at me, "Why are you wearing that? He doesn't even play for them anymore! And Red Wings suck!" It was then I looked at who he was wearing and it happened to be a Byfuglien one so I said, "Why are you wearing that? HE doesn'e even play for the Hawks anymore." He then tried to tell me that Byfuglien still does, and that he just bought it because Byfuglien is a, "Beast," and will win cups with the Hawks for many years to come. So I laughed in his face and left. Then some of their fans tried pushing my little brother down the stairs getting outside. It was a real...magical...expierence.

And hell I remember when Wing sweaters took up 85% of that place, they couldn't even give tickets away, what a joke.


In Topic: Call Out the NHL on BS

I'm just done with the whole, Bettman and his minions are ruining the NHL bit. The times have changed and its impossible for the game to stay the same. Take a look at every sport on the planet, they've all gone through some form of transformation in the last 20 years. I get that its tough for some fans to get used to, but it's better then grumbling about things that won't change. Hell I'm a purist, which makes me disappointed with a number of changes in recent years. I hate the shootout, the trapezoid, and lets not even start on the officiating. But you know what? I've learned to live with it. The game is still awesome, and it's much more enjoyable to watch if you accept the NHL the way it is. You know I'll still complain about this and that, because it's part of being a fan. However realizing that the new NHL is what it is, my frustration will quickly subside. Frankly I'm not even pissed at the Kronwall suspension anymore. It happened, it sucked,but time to move on.

 

Or the DH in baseball. I think it ruins the sport, but I don't see it going away either.
