Rangers Fans: STOP SAYING RAGS

What the hell is wrong with you all? I see Rangers fans all over this site say Rags. Is this like black people calling themselves the N word? Is it somehow cool to adopt our rivals derogatory nickname for us and use it ourselves?

It really bugs the hell out of me. I suspect people say it and don't even realize what they are saying. At least, I hope so.

So people, for the love of god, quit it.

Feel free to explain how the word "rags" has any sort of positive connotation.

Never. In fact, I'm going to use it as frequently as I can until all you little internet ladies realize that you're not important enough to make self-serving demands.

So, with that said Let's Go RAGS!!

Come on, you can't say RAGS. Because Thordic hates RAGS. And he's just so self-important he decided to make a whole thread just to tell us that he hates RAGS and that we should stop saying RAGS, because RAGS is the N-Word. That's right! Saying RAGS is like using the N-WORD. Can you believe that? RAGS is has to social weight of a racial slur! Oops, I just used the R-Words. Rags.

never used the term nor do i really intend to use it but it never bothered me at all.
infact when someone says Rags it reminds me of the Nickelodeon show Rug Rags back in the day so I dont really have any negative feeling towards it, and honestly.. comparing the word Rags to the N word is pretty stupid considering the history that lies behind the N word, sorry.

regarding this topic, all i can say is....relax Thordic. first and foremost you realize most Ranger fans are new yorkers. and with most new yorkers, the second you give up your weakness, there will be a plethora of people attacking it, whether it be in jest or not.

now, ill have to tell you guys that my weakness/pet peeve/irration is kristin kreuk , so if you will all kindly work collectively to hook me up with a date with her.....

How can you say it doesn't, after Thordic just said it did? It's obvious it does because he said so.

EDIT: Forgot obligatory RAGS!!
