McCarthyism on this board

I'm seeing way too much of it around here lately. We're all Blackhawks fans. We all love the team and want them to win the Cup. Sorry if some of us don't buy propaganda. We simply want change because I think we can all admit this team needs help in a number of areas (all over the ice and coaching). I don't think anyone is denying that so if you choose to accept the team as is, you're much more patient and optimistic than those of us who want to see action taken to improve the team. I think the in-fighting is ridiculous and I don't know what it is about the Hawks board but we probably fight with each other and question loyalty more than any other fan base.

I've never seen loyalty questioned. I do think that all of the "Fire Q", "We'll be lucky to make the playoffs", and "Trade Kane" posters are absolutely out of their mind though.

Come on over to the Habs board if you want to see what civil war looks like.

Seriously though - in-fighting happens with every fanbase when things aren't going well. Nothing abnormal about it.

I found the Halak v Price arguments on Habs board to be some of the most angry I have seen on HF

+1. I was a lurker for years and read a lot of those. A lot of people wanted Halak to fail that year and he was really really good in both the regular season and the playoffs. You couldn't go wrong with either but I was always an advocate of them keeping Halak and trading Price with the thinking being Halak is more than proven in the POs and Price would have brought back twice the return.

Well it's funny how Fire Q = 2010 band wagoners here.

Not sure how you figure yourself to be more sane than us.

We're all passionate about our team, that's probably where all of this comes from.

Suggesting trading away Patrick Kane because the team is struggling is not insane as much as it is simply stupid.

Because us Islander fans never in-fight about anything. Ever. Not even once.

Discussion is good, everyone is going to have different opinions, for the most part, people have been decent to each other on here.

It is for the most part, although some of the "ideas" presented on here really do have to make you cringe sometimes.

Things are pretty civil. Its not like our rebuttals are "Shut the **** up you stupid ****ing moron".

We have disagreements, thats fine. I'd prefer it that way instead of everyone holding Blackhawk hands together and sitting in a circle. I think that 99% of us have respect for eachother and we all know that at the end of the day we all want to see the Hawks win. We just have differing opinions on how to do that in the best way.

To put it more bluntly, one poster questions whether or not people are Hawk fans because he disagrees and does tell them to **** and insults them. Sometimes others join the mob. It's paranoid and baseless.

The level of discourse goes to hell quickly because certain posters take on a condescending and superior tone. Imo, anyone on either extreme is wrong with some truth to their argument.

Also, no political discussions outside of the anything goes thread.

Its just that if you look through the threads and the GDTs all you find is complaints and negativity...

Fire Q
Bowman Destroyed this team
Post Cup Fiasco
Kruger just Intangables

then presenting some ideas such as trading a 23 year old number 1 pick ppg face of the franchise winger because you lost a few games in a row.

or

fire quenneville because he didnt win cups two years in a row and they are not in first again this year.

its hard not to argue with some of these notions..there can only be 1 team in first place at any givin moment...all other teams should not trade there best players and fire there coaches because it isnt them.

debating those points is the sole purpose of these boards.
Doing so in a level heaed way without resulting to insults shouldn't be that difficult.

Attack the opinion, not the poster.

Nah, we're just more prone to whining. Arguments break out freaking everywhere.
