Why I like Nashville fans...

1) They are down to earth, realistic people (no over-zealous snobbishness associated with them).
2) They don't plaster ridiculous trade proposals over the Trade Ideas forum (The Clarke MacArthur syndrome).
3) They don't only complain about what David Poile hasn't done and how the team would be better with someone else.
4) They dislike the 'Canadian superiority' elite (and this is coming from a Canadian in Southern Ontario).

i like how last year at the deadline the thrashers "overpayed" by giving up a 4th and 7th round pick for macarthur and now he's worth crosby. hilarious

I think that seriously, the odds of a riot happening in Nashville like the one that is happening in Vancouver are exactly -0-.

Not entirely true. I complain about Poile and Trotz all the time.

I'll buy this.

We were down for the Music City Bowl, and a combination of liquor and the parking situation created an awfully edgy massive crowd to begin with. Add the circumstances of the game and a bunch of obnoxious 19-year-old UNC fans to it....and nothing happened.

I like Preds fans because they root for the good guys. The 29 other fanbases have for some unknown reason chose to root for the bad guys.

I ventured over here to see if anyone else felt this way...seeing the shenanigans going on in Vancouver makes me love Nashville even more. I'd like to think the people of our city wouldn't stand for that nonsense.

The only NHL player greater than Clarke MacArthur is Shane Hnidy.

Because they've welcomed us displaced Thrashers fans with open arms and could not have been more accommodating.

Felt a comfortable vibe and got a great reception from knowledgeable fans when I was in, then, enemy territory.

Like every fanbase, they have unrepentant homers and some local media that need a good smacking around. But in Nashville they are fewer and more far between than most or all fanbases out there.
Makes it a million times easier to talk about and/or enjoy the game with them. And that's kinda the whole point, being a fan should be about the enjoyment.

Can you imagine if rioters tried to destroy and loot the Ryman? I know people who would personally bear arms and go down there and defend that place with their lives.

Rednecks wouldn't stand for the crap.

Easy to tell someone hasn't been here that long.

Welcome aboard!!! I was trying to figure out exactly who you were a fan of in another post. The Preds and the Peg's should always be in different conferences so pulling for both shouldn't be too tiring.
