Senapreds/Nashawa 09/10 playoff alliance

Part lll! A tradition has been brought back from the death!

Who is up for part 3?

The Ottawa-Nashville Coalition



Welcome to one of two official homes of the Sena-Preds. Please feel free to post here as well as the chapter on the Ottawa board: http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?p...75#post5225475

Who are we?

Quite simply, we are the fans of the Ottawa Senators and the Nashville Predators who have agreed to unite under the banners of our two great franchises.

Why unite?

There are several reasons why we chose to form this coalition:

1. As we are all fans of the two teams that nobody is giving any hope due to the loss of our starting goalies, we figured there was no better place to look for support than to each other. We unite under the collective confidence we have for Chris Mason and Ray Emery.

2. We unite to promote comraderie between two of the greatest fanbases in the league. In a sport filled with so much competition, we unite in hopes of creating one of the first wide-spread alliances in the history of sports fanbases.

3. We consider the coalition to be of reciprocal benefit. In joining, we double the fan bases of two teams that receive little recognition when compared to their more historic division rivals. In doing so, we raise more awareness for our team and therefore create more support for them in the hockey world.

What's with the name?

Our official name is the Ottawa-Nashville Coalition. However, you'll see several neologisms that title our union. Sena-Preds, Prenators, Masonry (named after Emery and Mason) are all names you'll see. Most commonly, you'll see us simply call it 'the Coalition'.

What do I have to do?

Joining the coalition comes with a few commitments. Obviously, you'd have to be a Senators or Predators fan to begin with. To join, simply state your allegiance to the coalition in both official Coalition threads.

1. You must support both teams like they are your own. As they are in different conferences, there will very seldomly be a conflict of interest within the coalition.

2. You must mingle with fans of both teams. Remember, we are trying to promote comraderie between to two fanbases and the coalition's strength lies in the relationship between the two fanbases.

3. You MUST hate the Maple Leafs and the Red Wings. Or... at least try to.

What happens in the event of an Ottawa-Nashville Cup Final?

This would be Nirvana for us! In the likely event of a Sens-Preds Cup Final, we will shake hands, wish each other luck, and part ways for two weeks. No outcome would be a disappointment.

So what does that make, Predatoilerssens? But sure. I hate the Leafs with a passion and I'm a huge Brian Elliot/Jason Spezza fan. Don't even get me started on Alfie, I love the way the guy plays for Sweden.
Go Sens?

I dunno. On the one hand, I kind of like the Senators. On the other hand, part of that was because of Pascal Leclaire.

I'll have to reevaluate later. Maybe if you guys manage to embarrass the Penguins or something.

Good luck to Ottawa, but Pittsburgh has been my other team since the Predators stripped them of the number one spot. Washington comes in right behind Pitt.

Wow, as one of the originators of the first two alliances, I'm pleased to see that there are still those that remember the old ways.

I'm in....go Senapreds!

I was in it for the first two times and they failed both times but you know what they say, third time is the charm. I'm definitely in.

Why is there no thread for this on the Sens board eh?

We came down to 4 teams (Chicago,Vancouver,Phoenix and Nashville).53% voted for the Predators so I guess it's legit . We can't get all the fans to join but those who will or are fans of both teams(like myself) , feel free to come and discuss with us on the Sens board, we will welcome you with our open arms . Of course it wouldn't hurt to start a similar thread on our boards for every Preds related news when we don't have the time to check your boards.

Go SenaPreds

I am in again.

When I visited Ottawa a few years ago, I fell in love with the city. I was treated with awe that I would come all the way from Nashville just to watch the Predators and then gained some new friends.

I am hoping to go back to see old friends and visit more of the great city.

Don't know. I haven't heard from him in quite a while. I miss his wit and sarcasm in his posting.

He was like the Male Canadian version of Viqsi. If you got his number pull him in. Would make the Senapreds alliance work.

If I had to pick a Canadian team, it would definitely be the Senators.

I do have a lot of friends that are TML fans, though.

It is indeed to be friends with Leafs fans.

Many of us have friends who are leafs fans too. Maybe we should form a support group?

We started a thread on the Sens board as well , of course we can't get all the fan-base to join lol, but those who will ,I'm sure they will get behind and cheer for the Preds no matter what .

No big deal codeyh, In fact if the Sens are eliminated, the only team I could stand representing the East in the Finals is Washington

I work for the Panthers and "our" next game is against Ottawa. Must be a sign. I'll go for Ottawa.

Since I only have 16 posts on this board I may have to clarify that I am in fact die-hard Pred. In fact I'm leaving Florida to go back to Nashville early just so I can go to the playoff games.
