#2589328 Do Red Wings fans deserve better?

Posted by Hack & Whack Rule! on 05 April 2015 - 02:44 PM

To those who keep on posting that fans don't deserve anything or fans are not entitled to anything, look ... when pro athletes win the championship, who are the first people that they thank or dedicate the trophy to?  I have heard so many pro athletes speak of the fans and how they play for them.  On the other side of the coin, from the pro athlete side, they seem to know the value of loyal fans, they appreciate the fans.   

 

Here is what fans are entitled to ... an honest effort every night that the players go out on the ice.  You can reduce it to something as simple as that.  Do they deserve a championship every year ... of course not, only one team wins that but fans who buy tickets, buy their merchandise, watch them on TV (and indirectly contribute to the mega TV deals to NHL) deserve a good effort every night.  Believe me, I'm reasonable.  If they put in an honest effort and lose, I'd understand.  

 

So the reason why this post was started was because it was obvious that over the last month, the team has not given their best effort every night ... not even close.  And if we are dangerously close to falling out of a playoff spot.  That is unacceptable given where they were at the beginning of March.  The team needs to be held accountable ... not by some silly thread on a forum board but they need to know that they are not putting in an honest day's work and they need to work harder.    

 

So please stop with your 'fans don't deserve anything' high and mighty reprimands.  Save it for when you go out to dinner, pay good money, and get crap on a plate.  See if that mantra works in the real world.      

 

I'd be willing to bet that when an athlete thanks fans, it's usually to shut them up. I'm willing to concede that I could be wrong, but I don't think I am, and I would make that bet. If you want to keep a running tab on who is giving their 110%, Coach, go ahead. The chances of your list matching up with another person's list is...well...that math sucks because there are quite a few combinations, but it is a finite number. So, please stop with your high and mighty demands to be the only reason a team succeeds.




#2420275 Vote for Datsyuk!

The gap is closing...Down to around 20%.

 

You can vote multiple times you just have to wait 10 seconds.

 

Commenters are going Crazy that Datsyuk is coming back, lets make them lose their collective mind by putting Datsyuk into the finals vs himself.




#2420021 Vote for Datsyuk!

f*** Allen. Keep voting. I voted for this play in 1 of the earlier rounds and he was getting killed then too and obviously he came back to win. (It's in his nature). I have faith in Pav.

This is going to go down as one of the most epic meltdowns in Detroit sports history.

 

Then surely the Blackhawks losing three games in a row will go down as one of the most epic meltdowns in Chicago sports history.

 

In other words, no.

Posted by Vladifan on 15 April 2013 - 04:50 PM

This is just awesome news!!!!
Not much chance of getting thru that video without tears.
I will never forget That feeling when news broke of their limo wreck.


I thought I'd forgotten how to sob, but everything's still working. Darkmanx - THANK YOU, and you too, Haroldsnepsts, for whatever you did. That video has got to be one of the top sports stories ever. Could any of us Vladdy fans wish for anything better for this warrior than to walk on.his.own again?

This is one of my very favorite Wings' images ever. Thanks, Xitium.


#2374989 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

Posted by Esquire on 28 March 2013 - 09:03 AM

In the last week or so, there have been really only 3 higher end trades made and all of them include Pittsburgh.

 

If there was one team that DIDN'T need to make a move, it was probably Pittsburgh.

 

He has added one big defenseman and two long time captains and what has he given up? One top prospect (none of their top 5 prospects) and crap picks. NO roster players given up.

 

Ray Shero is the best GM in hockey. Granted Sidney Crosby fell into his lap and if the 04-05 lockout didn't happen Crosby most likely would have been drafted somewhere else, but that is a different argument.

 

If a couple of 34/35 year old role players and a goalie prospect are 'high end' trades, you must be watching a different league than the rest of us.

Wow getzlaf and perry showing emotion. I wish we had guys that showed half of that.

Emotion like that isn't beneficial to the team. The emotion they showed last game was IMO.

No way, Getzlaf and Perry are some of the biggest babies in the league.
