It was their Bums.

Yes, but that was a nickname from Dodgers fans. Rags is not a nickname from Rangers fans. It's an insult from fans of other teams. You don't see fishstick fans calling their team the fishsticks do you?

I never heard or read the quote:

Not unlucky, but certainly disrespectful. it's not really an endearing nickname.

I could see Sam doing it with Andy Brickley. You have one Ranger guy and one Bruin guy. I would say Emerick and Olczyk but both the teams they do are on the road tomorrow so they may already be in those cities.
That would be acceptable.

I pray it's not Forslund, because he has a rooting interest.

I'm superstitious, that's why in my eyes it's unlucky. Didn't say there was a literary piece written on the topic.

Oh, come on. I wasn't the first or the last to call my team by that name, nor will it stop other fans from calling them that, and by "fans" I mean Ranger fans.

Maybe the term has been so overblown that it has entered our lexicon. I always think that the people who get upset over it are too "high-class."

The Islanders are a poor example. You have to feel sorry for them. You can't critique them any iota but you have to feel sorry for them. That's what I always got whenever I argued with an Islander fan.

I'm gonna take this opportunity to welcome you to the boards as it seems no one has. Welcome!

As for the Rags debate. It annoys me when like a Devils fan or whatever calls them Rags, but it doesn't bother me THAT much.

Most "fans" won't call our team the rags. If you're a flyers fan are you going to go around saying "Philthy" was good tonight? What about the islanders, "our piles were good tonight." No, you're not. It's disrespectful and derogatory. You're really arguing a moot point here. Ask most of these posters and they will tell you they agree.

What bothers me more is i have to here the term "rags" thrown around on the main board all the time. At least on the Rangers board i expect it not to be.

biggest game of the season by far. well, maybe not by far (the buffalo game last week comes to mind, no matter how hard i try to forget that it happened).

tonight is the night that we need gaborik to step up and be a leader. the glass man and his reconstructive surgery needing knee go for 2 and 1 on timmy, book it.

Canadien, Flame, Maple Leaf fans have a lot of nicknames for their teams; maybe Canadien fans are a bad example since they get angry very easily and very fast.

And it's not like there aren't any other derogatory names for the Rangers.

You want one?

Rags: Just replace the "R."

Never heard that one from other fans?

I just hope Boyle gets his game together. His line has lost some luster recently. Boyle in particular has lost some of his stride and defensive zone coverage. That line needs to be good as the other defensive shut down line (Dubi-Artie-Cally) esp. since this team can't score right now.

I say if Boyle's line falters this game will not be winnable.

So because their are other derogatory names, it's ok as a fan to use one?

Anyways, I'm done with this, it doesn't belong in the GDT and it's 20 mins till gametime.

LGR BABY.

You sure dont seem very interested in talking about much else than derogatory names. You sure you are a NYR guy? Big game tonight, how about talking about the actual game, and not list all the bad names you can come up with.
That is, if you really are a fan of the team and not just some guy trying to start something.

Cheers & LGR!

Like you said, there is one that other Ranger fans don't have a qualm with, and I won't say it because I don't want any problems.

Deja vu.

Ah, nothing like hostilities at a Rangers forum.

No, you're supposed to say "The Rags will lose and Carolina will win out". Silly rabbit.
