"We struggle to fill our arena and hate the people that do."
The new schtick everyone is now using: "We classy Sens fans deliberately stay away when the Leafs are in town so we don't have to deal with obnoxious Leafs fans". Accompanying the message with a random youtube video of some ********** in Leafs jerseys doing something stupid is optional.
We boo him because he is a ****ing *******.. he cheap shots with hitting and with actions.. I do give him credit for being a tough ******* though.. he must have a lot of hairs on his ******* and that's why he's a tough *******!.. Where is Bell anyways?
Man I hate all the people who sit in the platinums at the ACC. Krusty gets absolutely annihilated and there is zero reaction from the suits. If I was at that game I would've been on my feet cheering faster than Krusty's helmet hit the ice!
The Ottawa Sun is run by a bunch of Idiots.....you will see anti leaf articles on a weekly basis.....when the allstar team was announced and there were more leafs than sens in the Allstar game the headline for a page long article entitled "TAKE THAT TORONTO!" Just a ton of pety stuff like that....After September 11 the paper had a picture of the plane and a caption "YOU ********!" I cant believe half the garbage I read in that sorry excuse for a paper.... I find it funny how the writer of this article sais "Apparently, they hate Alfredsson more than they love their team. And we’re pretty sure 95% of them don’t know why they’re hating Alfredsson" because that's exactly what i heard people saying about sens fans why they have such a beef with leafs fans.
I hate Alfie, and it's from the Tucker hit and the Sundin stick swinging mockery mostly, but also his "cup winning" guarantees and the like.
The rest of the Sens I don't mind, I actually do feel sorta bad for their fans who continually get over-ridden and dominated by the Leafs in terms of media coverage and presence when the Leafs come to town. Last night was by my guess, about 60-40 Leafs to Sens fans. I'd certainly hate that IF the opposite was in effect.
I don't blame them ONE bit for hating the Leafs. We're a division rival, fighting for a playoff spot, and have a HUGE fan base while they come out as a small to medium NHL market (and likely the smallest in Canada).
It's a fun rivalry. Their reasoning is akin to what Vancouver feels towards us, except when we play them once or twice a year, are 4000+ km away, and 3 time zones apart, Vancouver's hatred of Toronto is senseless. At least for the Sens, I can fully understand and respect their dislike for us.
I love Alfredsson because he is a great captain and even better player.
I hate Alfredsson because he is the captain of one of our biggest rivals.
I am a hockey fan first, so I appreciate his talent and enjoy watching him play. However, if I were attending a game I would still boo him because I know he doesn't give a **** -- it's all in the nature of the game and in good fun. Just like Lupul was laughing it off at the ASG, players laugh it off(and expect it) when they're in a rivals barn.
Normally, fans of your biggest rival don't have a love-in with your best player. It's just the way it is. It's like jeering of an opposition goalie. All in good fun. It's pretty hilarious when the boos overpower the cheers. It's gotta hurt your pride ALfie.
Ya, well the Ottawa Sun is full of morons. Obviously they didn't watch that series where Alfie ran Tucker into the boards and scored the game winning goal in the playoffs. Any real hockey fan cheering for either the Sens or Leafs during that time period understands the reasoning behind the "Boos".
Bear in mind the Ottawa Sun is staffed by people who were deemed unfit to staff the Toronto Sun, and THAT's saying something.
What a hypocritical article. Ottawa is the one that hates the Leafs more than love their own team.
Does this guy not remember Alfy in the 02' playoffs? From the dirty Tucker hit from behind to the embarrassing excuse of Domi's "Bad Balance" for losing the series, Leaf fans have lots of reasons to hate him.
