Why everyone hates us

15 February 2012 - 10:48 PM

A buddy and I have just figured out why "everyone" hates the wings. It is the same irrational "hate" I have for the Yankees (world series defeat of my padres notwithstanding). Illitch is the Steinbrenner of hockey.
1) he wants (needs) to win
2) he LOVES the sport
3) he is not afraid to spend money on someone who he thinks will help him win
4) he surrounds himself with people who are smarter (I mean hockey/baseball sense) than him
5) did I mention he wants to win?

Say what you want about owners like Steinbrenner, llitch, and extending to other sports Cuban, Al Davis, the Rooneys, etc. take a look at the history of those franchises, and you will see that the stability and passion is there. And that tends to help them win more often than not.

And that, more than anything, pisses fans of everyone else off. More often than not.
