It's a deadly game of one-upsmanship.
In short, good luck having an opinion that differs from those who spend all day and night immersed in Hockey. Heaven forbid you are a casual fan with an opinion. I love hockey but have never played it. I've been watching (and been a Caps fan) for twenty years, but I often feel as though many posters think I'm not qualified to have an opinion.
I'm fine with people disagreeing with me and, when it comes to hockey, I often look for the opinions of those who know more than I. But the way people tell you you are wrong around here is often, at best, childish. It's a shame, because this could be, bar none, the best place to have a discussion about hockey on the internet.
OT: I'm very excited to see what Wilson can do. I have no idea if he is ready or not but I'm eager to see him in a Caps uniform. I get the impression he is a Lucic type player in that he is a big body who likes contact and can score a few goals when needed. Is it a fair expectation that he could develop into a 20 goal scoring second line winger with a mean streak? Or do people feel he is more a grinder and checker?
I enjoyed your post, and found your metaphors to be quite witty.
As to your main point, yes, there are some here who are in a p!ssing contest. But lately, I've enjoyed many of their posts. Who knows... maybe it's all the narcotics I've been forced to take lately... whatever... I'm still enjoying their posts more.
Give em another chance, and please, post more. I'm thinking I may have missed the bus on you, too.
