#2430579 Red Wings popularity in Detroit/Michigan

Posted by onemorecup on 17 July 2013 - 09:19 PM

Weren't the Wings a lot more popular in Detroit in the late 90's, than they are today?


If you asked this question in 95 the answer would be the Wings no.1 hands down. This town was so cup crazy, with that ridiculous drought and how good that team was in the regular season it was gonna be our year. I want Stanley playing on the radio, wings flags from every car it was a beautiful thing till we got swept. Which made finally winning it in 97 all that much more gratifying and to this day I've never seen this town more excited for one team then for the Wings back then. Of course after winning it a few times fans got spoiled and Yzerman and the old school retiring left a disconnect for awhile. Now with the Lions and Tigers being good and still without a title for a long time that hunger has shifted to them and the Wings being good is just old hat now. Just a side note being in Chicago and watching this city after they won their first cup in ages paled in comparison to how crazy Detroit was in 97.

I think the context of the game had a lot to do with it as well. A game filled with fights previously and a blow out score and the team that's up disrespects the goalie and rubs their nose in the fact they're getting blown out. I can see easily why the kid went off the handle so I think the punishment originally given out was fair and criminal charges would be going way overboard.

Look at Shaw trying to be cute, the wings skill and class getting in the Hawks head. The hawk's wish they could be us and never can and they lose again. GO WINGS.

Just watching the NBC broadcast and I haven't heard a word from Eddie in 10 minutes. Hilarious that his homerism is that obvious he can't even comment on the game anymore. What a tool.

God I hate living in Illinois....the douchebaggery here is off the charts.


I feel ya buddy, they have no class out here, I mean act like you've been there before. All those beat Detroit chants are hilarious I just take it as respect because they're so desperate to be us but they'll never be.

We played our worst today and it took the Hawks till the third to break through. Going to be a different game Saturday I promise you that, all we need is one win out of two here.
