Last night, I decided to not drop by my favourite website to check up on what was going on. What a genius move on my part.
24 hours later, I see nothing has changed.
The same jerks pissing and whining, giving up all hope, and of course giving there two cents on what they think this team should do to win, with to my surprise a few new recruits to this group.
Now, usually about this time, I start giving the positives of our team, which are considerable, but I will not do that this time.
How can you call yourselves true fans, ready to jump ship at the first sign of adversity. I thought I would never say this but honestly, I would rather be reading Leafs fans and there Stanley Cup dillusions after picking up whatever latest 37+ year old that came on the market.
I know, I know, I will get the same old argument. "It's called freedom of speech" and "If you don't like it, don't read it". But I think, finally, it has surpassed these arguments. Can anybody honestly say they want to read this garbage? I mean, it's nothing but doom and gloom around here, and a collection of post that upon reading a majority, just create anger in myself, and I know it must happen to alot of you as well.
Do you understand, that to other team's fans, and common outsiders, you are all coming across no better than the morons who boo national anthems, or boo players for no reason, just out of habbit. Canadiens fans were once reknowned for there class and maturity. My how times have changed.
You all should be ashamed of yourselves.
(PS sorry for the broad generalization, but this certain category of fan seems to be growing by the day)
A fan who will NEVER give up!
I've been lurking on this board since late nov 2000 and i thought it was about time to register, just in time for the playoffs. I've noticed your posts have been very positive and based on logic rather than emotion which is what some posters base their posts around, thats good to see. With me, i will never lose hope, ever, the way i see it losing this game #4 hurts, however it's a blessing in disguise forcing us to pull out all the stops, all or nothing, here we go boys!
Besides, comparing "negative fans" (or maybe realistic?) to the ones that boo the anthems is uncalled for, and is jumping the gun big time.
Imo, the blind optimism is the apparatus of the losers. Wow!! We finished 15th again this year... but maybe we'll win the cup in 10 years when our 1st picks mature... woohoo... Not my style really. Or maybe a closer example... After game 2: Theodore will be a rock during game 3 and steal the game! After game 3: Theodore will be a rock during game 4 and steal the game! Since he wasn't that good then people were saying that he made a good save here and there. Yeah... like it's going to bring the team to the promised land.
I'm rambling though... So what was I getting to? Simply that there are different types of fans, they will enjoy different types of threads. I don't like your threads, but I've never made a thread saying you were stupid for it. You're just different. Maybe this thread wasn't flaming me, or maybe it was, but it was flaming some posters on this board. However, I think that they have the right to be different than you and to post and enjoy this message board without anyone giving them some holier-than-thou attitude.
That said, you should be really ashamed of yourself.
