This is called skewing, something I frown deeply upon.. I voted for option 5

The was a Rangers poll that we skewed a while back and they got right upset. I would rather refrain. People were calling for bans.

Pfft that's a lil overboard IMO.. in any event, the poll did not call for St. Louis fans in particular, it simply asked where we wanted the Blues to finish in the standings. As an Oilers fan, I truthfully hope they finish out of the playoffs (which is likely the view of every Oilers fan on this board).

Sure it was...but that was the sentiment of those on the Rangers Board whose poll was skewed. (Personally I took part, and felt much shame. )

The funny thing is, if the NYR poll was done today, they would probably vote for Messier. Is it skewing when you're right??

We can't help if we are smarter than Rag$ fans.
