#2592068 Definition of a real fan

Posted by SidAbelsSon on 10 April 2015 - 01:42 PM

Having watched the Wings since about 1955, even during the dead years, I consider myself to be a fan. But I am first of all a fan of Hockey. That being said, My favorite team is the Red Wings. If the wings aren't playing, I will still be watching a game and rooting for one of the teams. If that means I'm not a "true" fan, so be it!

After watching hockey evolve for over 50 years, I'm disgusted with where the game is going. The league is becoming a joke. Intentionally grabbing a players head and smashing it into the glass, no problem. Open ice hits= suspension. I'm sick of the inconsistency.

#2382668 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by SidAbelsSon on 10 April 2013 - 08:02 AM

I started rooting for the Wings because they were the team that won the Stanley Cup the first year I started watching hockey. If that makes me a bandwaggoner, so be it. Oh yeah the Cup I saw them win was in 1955 so I guess that makes me a Connestoga waggoner. :) No matter how bad the posters of today think they are, they are by FAR better than the dead wings era.

#2354606 Biggest mistake Red Wings have done

Posted by SidAbelsSon on 13 February 2013 - 09:35 AM

Problem with this team, and it's fanbase, IMO, is too much success. We've come to expect it. If we stumble a bit, we fans are looking to immediately dump the vets and bring in the young fresh blood. If we had that happen and they make their rookie mistakes that put the team in the same position win/loss wise, then we'd be calling for trades to get vets for "leadership". Kind of a good position to be in, either way.

Bettman deemed the punishment appropriate, saying the situation was “blown completely out of context.”

Sorry Gary, the situation wasn't the only thing Blown...

I think that goal might be our season. It just doesn't seem like we want to win as bad as them. I don't think we win tonight, and I don't think we beat them in seven. We better tank for sixth.

Wow, a hattrick of thinks. Too bad you don't get paid for them.

How is it possible for Homer's English to be so bad considering he's been in the U.S. for pretty close to half his life?

Ever been to the UP? He speaks perfect english.Posted Image

Negg all you want, I don't mind, I just would like to know why folks disagree with me, or did I mistake this for a discussion forum?

Anyhow, nice comeback so far, but special teams will kill this team, too bad Holland didn't address that...

Haven't you noticed that everytime you post negative comments about the team is when you get negged? Correlation maybe???

Still think this game is lost boys?

Last time I checked the NHL is a business, the premise of a business is to satisfy the customer, so perhaps a good idea would be to reassure the customer that the faults in the product are going to be remedied not stay the status quo.

The NHL could'nt care less what you think or like, unless you are a Crosby fan.

I'm really liking the way Flip has stepped up. You can see the confidence with the puck.

How about not fighting and just allow the opposing player to beat you up so you get a 5 minute powerplay?

Two things, first, do you have any clue what the game of hockey and it's rules are? Second, I can't help but noticce you are a glass half full kind of guy. Suggestion, get a smallerf****** glass!

I think it's great that we have so many Smith lovers out there. When he does get called up, I hope to hell he plays flawlessly because I hate to see the love quickly transform to hate.
