In Topic: Vancouver Sun article on why no one hates the Wings

This isnt about fans hating the Wings, it says "players" dont hate the Wings.

Cprice, you are classic...please enlighten us on the players that you know for a fact hate the Wings and provide us with the players statements that prove it. We already know you are jealous and that is why you hate.

I personally only dislikes teams because of their idiot fans who think they know stuff, but they really dont....ie Blues.



Kelly Chase, Tony Twist, Backes, nickol, jackman just to name a few. these guys hate the wings. Being from st. louis I have relatives that run into or know these guys pretty well. The blues alumni love jackman for his aggressive play against the wings and his hatred for them. I get crap for wearing my wings shirts all the time. During game days against the Red Wings the local ESPN radio show calls it "Punch a Wings fan in the face day". I get a lot of crap for wearing Wings socks in pick up games. fans around here just do not like anything to do with the wings. Some places that I play I can't even wear anything Red Wings without getting cheap shots or just completely ignored on the ice. There is a lot of hatred and will only get worse if the new playoff format is approved. The good thing is that when going to blues vs Red Wings games if you are respectful and knowledgable the blues fans leave you alone or will have a decent conversation with you. Rarely have I ever had a problem going to the games, gentle ribbing every once in a while.

It is "Punch a Red Wings fan in the face day" here in st. louis. I wear my Lids jersey to try to tempt blues fans. This was started by a radio station a while back, the announcer hates the Wings.

I actually wouldn't mind to see us play the Blues as well. I have a friend who lives down there and is a Blues fan and she would probably come up for the game if that was the case. Oh and I don't know if you have noticed but your signature says Steve Yzerman is the greatest caption. Not captain. lol.



just fixed it thanks, didn't even notice

I don't care where it's played I'll be there. As far as the opponet I think Avs, Pens, Bruins, Blues (if we are still in the West). I am a bit bias towards the blues because I'd have some buddies who would make the trip with me to watch the game.

I was sitting at work on tuesday reading the board and seeing that tickets were only $100. I started looking immediately for flights to detroit to make it there and back and not miss work since i have little vacation time from work left. the flight schedules did not work in my favor so i had to stay in st louis and watch the game. it was so disappointing not being able to go to the game, but loved game 6 anyway. I'm an odd man out in St. Louis, everyone hates the wings here.............. and they should
