The GDT is filled to the brim with whining and the game hasn't started yet. We whine about antichambre yet watch and report their **** incessantly. I use "we" as in HFHabs, we have some great people here but the general intelligence level is in the gutter.

How many god damn times do you see the same posters trolling about Price? And the another idiot re-trolling "hey where are all the price haterz now?? did u see that wicked save he made??". And then another idiot making a thread in the main board and another going to the Bruins board and sucking their teats "lol habs fan coming in peace, please beat our team up cuz we want a high pick! I hate the coach" or just plain sucking up to the racist, violent Bruins board constantly and legitimizing their points.

I don't care about how bad the Leafs or Bruins posters are because they only hurt their own discourse - but our posters are effin AWFUL.
Yeah, I've seen all those navel-gazing threads on our boards. I agree most are ridiculous. Not surprising when you live in an environment of non-stop 24/7 hockey coverage -- the relative importance of a hockey team will inevitably get blown wayyyyy out of proportion. I'll still maintain that our hockey vibe is historically less violent and ugly than Boston's or recently in Toronto. We haven't stooped to that level for the most part and see no evidence that we would start.

And that annoying, whiny navel-gazing happens in every big market. Boston's board is as bad as ours. Check it out for yourself.

As for that "Coming in peace" cliche when a fan visits another board, everyone seems to do it. It's silly but harmless. I'm too old for that nonsense, but I understand that many people find it awkward to go onto another team's board.

To be honest, dude, your argument sounds very much like a personal issue you're having with some specific people in here. Not saying you're right or wrong, just that it may not have anything to do with 'Habs fans' in general. I enjoy reading your stuff and hope you work this stuff out.
