#1964689 Why do other NHL teams' fans hate the Wings?

Posted by Electrophile on 28 April 2010 - 07:14 PM

That said, you definitely have Yankee goggles on (*cough*cough* Clemens, A Rod, Matsui, Sebathia, Damon, Texeira, Burnett and on and on)



I'm not sure what this random listing of players is supposed to represent. Players you don't like? Players we acquired via trade/free agency that won championships? Help me out here. I'm a Yankees fan, been one since 1994 so yeah, I'm going to defend them if I think the reasoning people are using to disparage them is faulty and/or dumb. We spend a lot of money, I've never said otherwise. I think it's great and am grateful we have an owner willing to part with however much he thinks he needs to in order to insure a quality product will be on the field every season. We may not win the WS every year, but at least the best possible team to achieve that is playing every night.

I initially misread the headline as "Unclassy move by Phx, player blown by ref" and thought.....gee, that explains all the s*** calls against us in the series.

ehh, people most definitely do hate the Yanks because of the players, the stadium and the championship rings - because they were all bought and paid for. They hate the ownership because they can pay for rings. The Wings were hated for the very same reason up until a few years ago, and some of the ongoing hate is residual.



Not to turn this into an MLB discussion, but I get real tired of that which I bolded. All teams pay for their championships -- no one pays their players in circus peanuts. The Yankees spend a lot of money on players because they can and because the system allows for it. No one said anything about Boston and their two championships, when they had exorbitantly high payrolls, in fact the 2004 squad is the highest-payrolled team to win a WS. The majority of the players on the dynasty teams and the current team are products of our farm system, not free agents or trade acquisitions. We "bought" our championships the same way every other team that has won a WS has "bought" their championship. It's asinine to think there's something wrong with a team spending the money they have on the players they want to get the results they desire. It's called capitalism.

Whenever people use the above bolded excuse for why they hate the Yankees, it says one thing and one thing only: I'm jealous that my team doesn't have the financial resources to compete in the current market and therefore I'm going to hate the team that can spend the most. Period.

If the Wings come out playing like we know they're capable of playing, we'll win easy. Enough dilly-dallying around.....PLAY RED WINGS HOCKEY.

I'm going to have a cheeseburger and cheese fries for lunch today, so I just thought I'd share.

#1959985 The Hottest Red Wing

Why are Swedish men so good looking? I've yet to see an ugly one. If we can get King Henrik from the Rangers and the Sedin twins from the Canucks, we could potentially field an all-hot Swede team. If that doesn't put butts in the seats, nothing will.


Speaking of hot Swedes.............

I would really, really, REALLY like to do evil and disturbing things to that man and he looks like the kind of guy who'd be into that but beforehand.....I'd like to meet his mama and shake her hand to thank her for birthing him because SWEET JESUS SHORTCAKE IS THIS MAN CRIMINALLY GOOD-LOOKING.

Octopi throwing is as old a tradition as anything I can think of. It's what we do. If you did a little research, moron Coyotes fan, you'd realize the symbolism behind the octopus.


There's two C-words that get used too much on this board; class and Crosby . Sadly though, you'll never see one used to refer to the other.

Can we not post pictures of slaughtered animals? I'm not a PETA freak, but come on. That's just depressing.

The Coyotes are an inferior ice hockey club and it is my sincerest desire that in the upcoming match between both ice hockey clubs, the ice hockey club of Detroit will emerge victorious, having scored more goals than their inferior ice hockey club opponent.

Booing is so stupid. If you hate the way the team played, you stay silent. Silence is the worst. It means the fans can't even bother letting you know how pissed off they are, that's how pissed off they are.

I have a second favorite team too, Buffalo.

I'll probably get negative votes for this, but my second favorite baseball team is the Yankees, and my second favorite Football team is the Cowboys.



You won't get a negative vote from me for that. :thumbup:

OH NOES! Someone flipped a Wings fan the finger! What is the world coming to?!?!?!?!?!?


You don't think a Wings fan has at any time flipped the bird to a fan of a rival team?
