I think you should legally be a citizen of your country before you can use "we." I just don't want any god-damned illegal immigrants being allowed to use "we."

could you imagine how offended a player would be if you approached him and said "MAN, WE REALLY BEAT UP ON THOSE CANUCKS IN THE STANLEY CUP FINAL, HUH? WE PLAYED AWESOME THAT SERIES"

more directed at previous posters:
the players play for the love of the game/money/to win the cup. they may develop a connection with the city they reside and play in for a number of years, ie: modano or sakic, but to think they don't play for the contract/money/personal gain is naive.
I wouldn't use we in that situation. Your just a d bag if you do. I coach little guys and even talking to them, it would be you guys did a great job, not We did a great job even though I am a coach. The expression is used 99% of the time from Fan to Fan. And it works. People are still stretching this to an extreme and adding agenda's that aren't really there.

I am not sure, it must have been late 80s but it is a hazy recollection at best. It was short-lived but FNN Score rings a bell.

FNN was Financial News Network. It's either MSNBC or CNBC now. Back then, it was Wall Street during business hours. But FNN Score (the after-hours "club") was fantastic. They say they were going to have a look-in on the Penguins and Islanders, and they'd stay there until the end of the period. Fifteen or 20 minutes, no problem. Time Out For Trivia was well done -- can't remember the details, other than having the sound effects like a Talk Soup for sports. They had call-in shows and highlight shows (The Final Score).
They got in some kind of trouble and were suddenly off the air.
