Anyone is welcome to root for the Hawks.
You are wrong ,, Crazy has been on these boards since before I came around

He comes from the old guard of HF Hawks fans ,,, (Guys like Teemu , Stuy , others) who posted here when there was only a handful of Hawks fans on HF

It's still a small fan base on this forum (only forum I have a user name). Although it has been growing as of late.

Yes, you have. I despise you "well the Hawks are my SECOND favorite team!" pelicans. You're certainly not the first. Plenty of people out there who want to jump on the Hawks bandwagon now that they are good.

Unbelievable. Sorry to be supporting your team then. I guess I'll take it back.
Good. Saves me having to bust out the floormat picture to describe your favorite team again. At least this time there was no "let's be playoff buddies!" from Senators fans, that literally made me ill.

Quote:
I see your Canadian too, aren't you a bandwagoner then?
How does that follow? Are only Americans allowed to hope for the Hawks?

When I joined this board the Hawks top line was (or had been before the lockout at least) Arnason, Bell, and Calder - three players who a few years later would not even be in the NHL. We were also infested with a crapload of gutless and heartless Russian pukes because our GM years before was terminally insane. You think THAT was a team to climb on the bandwagon for? Not that that was when I started rooting for the Hawks, but it was certainly the earliest I could have on these boards. (Technically, for the record, I joined these boards because of the Business of Hockey board, which has unfortunately gone steeply downhill in recent years.)

Mind boggling to say the least. Really, how old are you 5?
You mad? Bandwagoner.

Crazy has always been great around here on game nights. He is as dedicated as they come.

Why thank you!



And yes, nothing wrong with watching Hawks fans crinkle their way in here. Nothing wrong with being new to the boards, fresh perspectives and material is great. It's the "Hawks are my second team" or "Hawks are my western team" or the toads who don't really care about the Hawks but have a bunch in their playoff pool... those are the ones that grind my gears.

On the plus side, Beach should be GREAT for creating hate next year...

Seriously, who cares? If people have a 2nd team, or a western team, who cares? let them. It's just a post saying "I am cheering for this team! woo!" Get a grip.

I think "Get a Grip" gets my vote -- so let's recap "post count" and join here" date = "old guard", do I got that right?

If so, I think I'll rephrase that to suit me reality --- "old guard" = "has a clue, knows hockey" -the rest of it isn't relevant. And yeah I might average under .3333 posts per day .... so frigging what? (I don't have a problem with any of those guys mentioned (I don't recall any of them posting that sort of stuff -so this is more about the attitude than anything personal) - but I mean really, is "Hawk fan" defined by how long you've been a member here (-hell I used to post on the Trib boards in 1998 under the name exiledinkc when there like maybe 5 or 10 regular post-ers - I'm sure it doesn't actually matter -but then again you know - "what is a hawk fan"? Isn't that the question??? )?

In fact -let's go a little further --- were you maybe aware that the entire current Blackhawk (in fact NHL) business model is based upon band-wagoners. Kindly, take it up with McDonough and Bettman...

A Hawk fan is NOT someone who comes in here after his own team gets its arse kicked and tries to start a love-up.

Nothing else you posted has anything to do with anything I said. I never judged anyone by their join date.

A Cup would help too. The Hawks would go pretty quickly from a feel-good story everyone can bandwagon to hated with a few successful post-season runs. Add in Beach, Aliu and their special brand of crazy and we're golden. A bunch of "thugs" that also happen to be a really good team? I find it incredible the amount of hate Byfuglien has drawn in a few short playoff series. Beach and Aliu are on another level. They'd be more hated than the wings. And that would be awesome.

Yawn...

Lucky for us, people like you don't set the rules. So instead of posting stuff that makes Hawks fans seem irritating and dumb, just keep it to yourself. It's not your team and you cannot decide who cheers for them.

Personally I don't care too much about the people that are "I'm cheering for you guys, 2nd favourite team thing" but being on these boards for almost 4 years and supporting the Hawks since 91 I get pretty annoyed about the new fans that come around or people I see in my hometown with Hawks jersey's on that clearly did'nt give a crap or know anything about the Hawks history or troubles. If you're a 12 year old kid that's fine but it's the older dudes that bother me.

I even had a Canucks fan come after me and start accusing me of being a bandwagoner, till I set the record straight. He did'nt realize I was wearing a #30 Ed Belfour jersey till I turned around.

Alright, I let this one go on too long.

I dont care if you bandwagoners come over here. Everyone's gotta start *somwhere* as a fan, and as long as you're willing to learn about the team and discuss it in a realistic problem, then that's fine by me.

However, regardless of whether you're a new (or "rekindled") fan, or a longtime fan, or a fan from another team rooting for us, you are to treat each other with respect. Point out the flaws in others' posts, but don't go off calling names or making accusations.
