Again, not saying I agree with it, since I'd like to think we could have some semi-civil smack talk and have some fun without things getting stupid, but those people are going to look at it as a "you started it" sort of situation.
And thats written by someone who lives in Toronto

I'm just saying that I think it's silly to expect respect when some of your fans showed none towards us in the first place. I don't care what you chant in the arena or how you perceive Leafs fans. That's your business. I just think it's a bit hypocritical to ask for respect, when the first thing Leafs fans at the game probably hear where Leafs sucks chants.

Not to mention you're only getting one side of the story there, for all you know the Jets fans started the chirping the Leafs fans. I seriously doubt that Jets fans jeered the opposing team as mercilessly as they did with the Leafs, so the hostility may have been in retaliation.

Simple as that. I, for one, will not go over to the Toronto board to try and start a pissing match. It's uncalled for and unneeded.

Lets act like adults ladies and gents, no need to behave like children.


That being said...Jets win, 5-3.
I am a little guilty of doing this myself. I tried to bring up the topic of relocation being off-limits but I did it in a respectful manner and was responded to respectfully.

Who cares what they are calling us over there haha. They are Laughs fans and for that reason we should all feel sorry for them. Could you imagine being a fan of such a horrible team?

Yeah, that's pretty much the same thing.

It's called perspective. But since you don't seem to know anything about that, allow me to blow your mind.

Wow...that totally did blow my mind.

Woo indeed.

Sorry, but I don't see the title's on our board ever becoming respectful unless they become respectful here, which will never happen from what I've seen.
I'm not interested in playing "he started it" with opposing fanbases. This is our board, you have your board.

You're welcome to drop by and participate here, but if you don't want to see the Leafs being taken down a peg, this probably isn't the place for you.

Well I was at both games, and maybe it was my section, but I didn't experience anything that Leafs fans did towards Jets fans that I haven't seen from other team's fans. I think the Leaf hatred in this city comes from long before the Jets being back.

Actually, it's the other way around. Most Loafs fans showed us zero respect when we got a team back; all we got from you was smack talk about us and our city. And the smack talk about us and our city by you loafs fans continues on your threads to this day. Therefore, you reap what you sow, son.

I'm never one to stop others from commenting, but man I wish there was a way to block Leafs fans from coming and posting in here.

The Leafs are a team you need to beat in your own barn. No excuses. They are not a good club.

As long as you were respectful, then there's no problem.

I don't get why anyone is sensitive about relocation anyways(unless you were a fan of the Thrashers). We got the team back.

Any citations on that? Most Leafs fans and hockey fans in general I talked to were happy you got a team back, me included. I'm pretty positive that there were many Leafs fans in the "Winnipeg has a team thread" (or whatever the hell it was named) congratulating you guys.

In any case, this whole argument could go in circles all day. I seriously doubt anything will change between our boards, and that's fine. I kinda enjoy the wars we're having every time we have to play each other.

1. Making fun of the team you're playing against.

2. Making fun of people losing their favorite team. Old Jets fans and old Thrashers fans alike. Also making fun of people's hometown.

Who cares about gdt insults. I just came back from their gdt. I thought it was great. Reading it made me even more pumped for the game and eventual win. Relocation insults mean nothing and the fact they have to resort to those type of insults just shows how bad their team is and has been. Hating toronto is a canadian thing, they should just suck it up and accept. In a round about way it can be even viewed as a compliment.

My favorite insult was the "winnipeg is the uber cold version of hell". Only the strong can thrive in a prairie winter, the rest move to Toronto.

I can assure you that in a few cases I'm getting the full story.

Again, I'm not sure why you're pushing this. I'm discussing isolated incidents. I'm not making any kind of extrapolations.

That's fine. I can handle the Leafs being insulted, I've been a fan long enough that I've grown a thick enough skin to not care about names such as the Laffs. I was just surprised that you guys were surprised by our Pregame thread title and the content that was in it, considering what's being written in here.

Ok...so why are you still here? If your going to talk hockey...then by all means, proceed sir. However of you're not, then take the argument somewhere else.

Agreed. Toronto is for the weak
I love when they get a little bit of snow....it seems to be a national emergency because of their inability to drive

and now back to hockey :p

Orr would throttle peluso i think, unless Peluso landed a lucky strike. Orr has been on fire this season.

I think you have pursued this long enough. Like someone else had mentionned, the Loafs board is that way -------------->
