Note To Avs Fans

Hey guys, let's try to have a little class, and also learn from our previous mistakes. Let's try not to make pompous posts on the main boards about our players, or our teams level of play. Theses posts only come back to bite us in the ass, and it also tarnishes the image of our team forum.

Seriously, you would think we'd have learned after earlier boasting about how our team was definitely not going to give Washington a top-5 pick, and when we boasted about how amazing Duchene was, or how Stewart was going to be one of the best players in the league. Leave it to other teams to do this type of stuff.

Seriously guys, we don't need to try to troll people.

I agree, but again am not trolling, just making an observation.

To me it's always assumed that if you're talking to other people in other NHL cities about your own player or own team, you're most likely overrating them.

I pay 100000 more times attention to someone from (for example) Carolina giving their input on a Toronto-LA Kings deal than I do either of the respective fanbases.

That's it. I'm going to go start a thread hailing Hejda as a Norris contender for his torrid scoring pace and impressive +/- over the course of the last 1 game.

But seriously, I almost always cringe when I see Avs-related threads on the main board. The exceptions are the ones that deal with something of general interest, like someone passing a genuine milestone or an outsider highlighting a guy on the team he has noticed (for good reason). But even low-key brag threads make me wary. Complete troll threads hyping a guy who's barely played while slagging a guy that was traded make me glad I have an avatar which doesn't make my loyalties obvious outside those relative few who recognize it and can extrapolate that I'm probably big on all things Colorado.

Having said all that, I've been in my cups and gotten warns for a couple of posts where I went off on complete fanbases. Some of you may be glad that my avatar is so ambiguous.

The Elliott ones last night were exceptionally bad, that is for damn sure. 3 games is a small enough sample size to make Tyler Arnason look like a Hart nominee. Just keep that in mind.

Main board? Can't remember the last time I ventured over there.

Holy crap I just read the Stewart thread on the main board and WOW. I'm much more happy I made the Elliott > Shattenkirk topic last night. Some of those Blues fans are just ridiculous.

I don't know if he's better than Shattenkirk, but for sure he's better than Johnson.

It's St Louis. The only thing close to ice they see 365 days of the year is the Mississippi River.
