A fan of a franchise that won 4 straight Cups lecturing Caps fans on suffering?

I say deny that application.

It was Maruk and Mulvey, but I can't remember the other two. Yes, similar to the Rangers piece.

My recollection is they all had the 70's hair and porn staches.

When I first saw this thread I thought it was an Isles fan that just really wanted us to beat Pitt. I didn't expect a full fledged defection. Still I don't think it can be done. Once you're indoctrinated from a young age it's virtually impossible to break. My life would be so much easier right now if I just had the guts to make the Ravens my favorite football team.

My young cousin did that. She's so much happier than the rest of our family.

Poor guys. It's like having to choose burnt toast or rice cakes. Such low standards.

I was actually able to get caught up in the hype back in 2000. Redskins were struggling with Marty Ball and suddenly we got Raven games broadcasted almost weekly on CBS down here in Atlanta. I forget which game exactly but I think I decided to start at least paying attention the week Tony Banks got benched for Dilfer. After they beat the Titans in their second regular season matchup I was hooked.

Followed them for the rest of the year and was able to live vicariously through them through the playoffs. Even skipped parts of my high school football banquet to go to the bar and watch the Ravens-Titans playoff matchup. Then the Skins hired Spurrier and I got right back on the Skins bandwagon but kept the Ravens as my other team. Still kind of do but not with even close to the amount of time I spend following the Skins.

Back in 2000 I could name almost every player on that Ravens roster. Today the only reason I know who Chris Chester is, is because he signed with the Redskins. I barely know any of their starters yet I could name you most of the practice squad for the Redskins. If I only I had stayed on the bandwagon.

Still good for your cousin. Long and happy football life for that one.

I was smart and made the decision for the Ravens early on.
Probably one of the top 5 decisions i've ever made in my life.

How about Penguin Hunter for his new handle with a pic of 80's Hunter with an assault rifle?

Indoctrinate the guy properly. There is no going back.

I always love people who chime in with meaningless nonsense. It's weak because I'm deciding to devote my fandom to a different organization, after the previous one has literally **** on my face for 15 years and counting?

The owner fires anyone who talks bad about the organization, replaces them with losers in every capacity.

The Isles promote AHL coaches. They don't have ANY NHL experience in the organization except for Doug Weight. They fired Trottier because he was too much of an NHL good guy.

They promote backup goaltenders instead of hiring ANY GM with experience.

They sign goaltenders for life when they accomplish nothing.

They use rookie bonuses to reach the cap FLOOR, damaging all quality potential in their young guys - although these same kids are expected to save the future.

They are headed for another lotterty finish, where the previous 4 of them did nothing for the organization.

There is nothing positive on Long Island to look forward too, so nobody should be telling ME what I should, or should not, be doing.

Plus, I just graduated so I'm moving off of that decrepit, disgusting Long island anyways.

In with the new, out with the old. And I don't regret my decision AT ALL. So leave me be.

Untrue. All it really takes is moving from one NHL city to another. Out of sight, out of mind.

As for the NYI: Once Trottier (the poster) left, I figure anyone else has the right too. That guy was a long-suffering diehard as well.
