Bulldogs or Canadiens?

What team would you watch if you had the possibility to chose between our farm and our sucking main team?

Even though they suck right now we still have to support the Canadiens.

Sink or swim, I'm a Habs fan. Period, all others are secondary, though the Bulldogs are a close secondary.

That's like asking me if I want to watch Pamela Anderson in a see through shirt, or with no shirt at all.

I would choose no shirt...I mean The Habs

Gotta love how you worded it to be a totally objective


Kind of along the lines of:

Habs, definately. Although I'd also try and take in as many Dogs games as I could. But as it stands, the NHL can't manage to broadcast their games across the net, something which other leagues, even the AHL can do. But the NHL can't. Sad really. So for the time being, I'm enjoying watching the Dogs.

Um.... who actually voted for the Bulldogs... and are they serious? This is a dumb thread, I can't believe anyone would rather watch the AHL over the NHL...

Althought I'd like to see the Bulldogs more often (like watching them on RDS instead of the sucky NAHL games), there's no freaking way I would choose AHL over NHL...

Are you a Habs fan or a Bulldogs fan ??

What if someone is a real big fan of a guy like Kyle Chipchura or Yann Danis, for example, and has been a fan for many years? They might be a Habs fan also (or a fan of a different NHL team) but prefer to see their favourite player, who happens to be in the AHL. Or maybe some people from Hamilton have voted in favour of their local team. The poll isn't asking if you would rather watch AHL or NHL hockey or which you think is better, it is asking if you would prefer to watch the Dogs or the Habs. And while most people will likely answer 'the Habs', it isn't so absurd that someone would choose the Dogs for the reasons mentioned above or perhaps different reasons entirely.

I don't see why anyone answering 'the Bulldogs' deserves a single person coming into this thread and shaking their head at them or trying to belittle the team they love. I'm a Habs fan first and foremost and would cheer for whatever farm team the Habs set up, but don't go thinking that it is simply illogical for people here not to answer the Habs.

Everyone has their own opinion, but I'm a Habs fan first. It's the crest on the front, not the name on the back that matters most to me.

Well..so far the poll says 7 people would, so my guess is you would be wrong

This is the point I'm trying to make. It doens't matter what team anyone supports, that's not the issue I have with some of the posts here, it's people who say things like "are they serious" or describing the 6 who voted the Dogs as "many more pathetic fans". What people seem to be doing is regarding the Dogs purely as a lower branch of the Habs organisation, which isn't wrong. But the Dogs are a team in their own right also. What if one of the people who voted Dogs was a Hamilton native who has been a season ticket holder there since the team started? Are they still "pathetic fans"?

I have no objection to anyone voting for either team, but trying to put down anyone who votes for the Dogs because some posters train of thought fails to recognise that people may actually have a love of the Hamilton Bulldogs as a team and not just as part of the Habs farm system and becuase of their own narrow mindedness is ********.

Is that clearly established? I am not in any way, shape, form, language, thinking, freaking way objecting to the votes being submitted.

What I am objecting to is people who have posted their opinion here that anyone who has voted for the Dogs is in some way less of a fan or that they could not be serious in voting for the Dogs. That is my objection as such thinking is nonsense. Someone could quite easily post here and be more of a Bulldogs fan than a Habs fan. So why anyone who falls into this category should be put down by anyone else is beyond me.

That's as simply as I can phrase it.

I'll leave it at that.
