See the correlation? He's trying to convince a Flames fan to not buy a jersey and show support for their former franchise cornerstone and legend, and he just happens to be a fan of the team that Iggy spurned. A bit sensitive?
He's not trying to do anything. If he was the poster that originally questioned the idea of buying an Iggy pens jersey, I wouldn't have "stood up for him"... I checked. This has nothing to do with me being a fan of the bruins, it's just that you went out of your way to misunderstand what he said.

I thought it was cool, but id like some input as im worried it might be a bit tacky.
It does sound pretty cool, but make sure its the two away jerseys so that most of the jersey is one color instead of red/black. I'm curious to see, you'll have to post a picture if you do it

Already planning on getting an Iginla Penguins jersey. Penguins have been my second favorite team since I was a little kid, so I could care less if Iginla only plays there for 17 games. It's one of my favorite players going from my favorite team to my second favorite.

And yet the correlation remains that of the two B's fans in here, one is saying not to buy a jersey and another B's fan has sprung to his defense. Do you have a condescending picture irrelevant to the situation at hand to post about that? Keep dragging this out, by the way; there's nothing like implicitly confirming you're sore while frantically insisting otherwise.

you think it's a surprise that there's a few more bruin fans skimming these boards than usual? Of course not.

There is no bruin fan telling anyone not to buy his jersey here. The matter came up before and he gave people a heads up for a cheaper option. You, however, tried your best to understand that as a thing you could be offended by and could call him out for it. Hence why I posted thje image: He posted a message that emphasised the factual information part of the message (cheaper alternative available), you misunderstood and overemphasised the relationship side of it (bruins-pens-iginla). Nothing conscending about it, just simple analysis of what happened. You're taking the superficial route of just seeing two bruin fans and nothing else.

Your last point is laughable, by the way. If I respond you take it as proof for your argument? Making it easy for yourself there. I'm not sore (disappointed, yes, but that's it). Th flames are my second favourite team, I have posted on this board before the Iginla thing and I will continue to. I just have a pretty low toleration level when it comes to people getting angry for no reason.

I agree with your point lotta money to throw at a jersey for a couple of months. Why not get a vintage jersey with a flames legend on the back.ie. Fleury or Veron.

Iginla is a Flames legend.

I've been thinking about buying one. I have a Fleury Rangers jersey.
But I might hold off. If he competes for the Stanley Cup I'd like to buy one with the Stanley Cup logo on it. So I just may wait to see if that's going to happen.
