I just think the Írebro media should recognize and appreciate the caliber of players ÍHK just landed and be a little bit more respectful.

OK... I'll get off my soapbox.
As a finn living in sweden, what more bothers me with swedes using the word finne is the context and the tone in which they usually say it. When it's about something positive and so, I don't really care. In those cases it's a sibling love thing, that swedes hate to love (but do so in some cases anyway) when finns do something good.
