You'd think that Winnipeg getting a team back and righting that wrong would slow things down a bit, but it seems to have made things worse. Not trying to start a riot, but Quebec fans and those hoping to see the return of the Nordiques have been far more civilized than the Jets crew. That makes it easy for me to root for their return. I don't want it to be at the expense of my team, but if it comes to that, I know they are going to a better home.
Revel in the comedy of it all, but try to leave us out of it. As you can see, people are finally cracking. The heartbreak when GJ's bid failed was palpable. Trash the market and the council all you want. They've earned it, though there's more to the backstory than anyone here really wants to admit. I draw the line at rooting for the city to go bankrupt and things of that nature. That's 5 out of 5 classless Subbans. There's only a few of us poking around these threads because, quite frankly, it's a free fire zone. Thick skin is required.
It was funny seeing how the crowd of Canadians changed over there. First it was Hamilton folks wanting to get a team. Some started off curious and then the fighting began and there were some Winnipeg fans just hoping the Yotes would move not thinking they had a chance. Then Hamilton lost and Peg moved into the drivers seat so more Peggers came and a few Hamilton folks were left. Even when Peg got their team the Peggers hung out and got nastier. Its hard to say who really fired the first shot. There are some on AZ Central that were so nasty they left you hoping Arizona would lose all its major league teams. But like I said, different crowd over here.
