Disgruntled Isles fan wants in!

Hey all,

I have always liked the Capitals. I have family that lives in Washington D.C and I have seen the Caps live against the Islanders a couple times at the beautiful Verizon center.

I am in love with all of your passion. I am in love with the way your organization is run.

Despite the - recent - hard times, keep your heads up. I hope that you can all adopt me and allow me to learn the ropes of Caps country.. so that I can live the journey with you all from here on out.

Be nice to me, I am battered and bruised because of the Islanders. I hope that you all understand

Let's Go Caps!

I'm sorry little doggy... but we only accept one former-Isles fan at a time.

BACK OF THE LINE!

Has someone else really come over from the Isles board?
The Islanders are actually a disease on Long Island. Not a hockey team.

Funny, I have often referred to being a Caps fan as a chronic condition.

Anyway, welcome to long-suffering-fans-R-Us.

4300 posts as an Isles fan... Hunter becomes coach... and now he wants in. Me thinks he's a spy.

Give him the Test of Faith!

On a scale of Jeff Friesen to Dale Hunter, how much do you wish Kolbe was still the radio play by play guy?

It's a sign. The letters in his user name can spell out "Backes for Mojo".

OK, seriously with Dale Hunter as coach?

I'll have to deal with it. But I don't think he's going to solve much. Ahhh, Dale Hunter! I wasn't an Islanders fan when he decided to practically maul Pierre Turgeon... so no hard feelings.

Plus, when you have the lineup you guys have.. it's only a matter of time before this turns around. Although, I do wonder what Mr. Softee AKA the guy in net is still doing getting starts?

I'm passionate and I wear my heart on my sleeve. So, prepare to hate me and love me at the worst of times.

For the record, I'm not sure Capital fans know what it's likely to truly suffer. Islanders fans are literally psychologically abused by the organization. It's disgusting what Charles Wang gets away with on Long Island.

The NHL just turns away and doesn't bother. So, we learn to deal and move on.

Interestingly enough, you guys brought with you a fairly large contingent - considering the circumstances - when you came to LI a few weeks back. I was impressed!

the cap fans will probably accept you if you bring Matt Moulson with you.

Change your username to:

DHunterkillsyou and start a goodbye thread on the Isles board... then we'll accept your application.

Seriously? I thought you said you'd followed this team. This is a top-10 suffering sports franchise.

Advatars are cheap. Change your username referencing Dale. Then we will let you in.

Well I come from the top suffering sports franchise, next to the Pittsburgh Pirates

And for the guy who just asked me to bring Matt Moulson, you don't want to touch this guy with a 10 foot pole. He's a soft, lazy, perimeter plug who lives off Tavares.

Isles suffering is short term. We caps fans are marathon runners. Just saying.

Not hating Hunter as coach is seriously the hardest emotion I've had to repress in my 15 years now as a Caps fan.

Can someone give me some background information on why it was necessary to hire this guy? Was he coaching your farm team? Please excuse the "ridiculous" questions, I'm learning.

BTW, I have played hockey my entire life.. so I do have a ton of knowledge about the game. Once I connect the dots, I do actually hope to add to the level of conversation here.

OT: Can someone help me change my username? I've looked and I can't find the damn way to do it!

If you say so

What we do have in common? Suffering. So I'm on the scale.
