I wonder what the reaction would be if there was a prominent display of Flames gear in an Edmonton store and no Oiler gear or vice versa in a Calgary store.

Also in the days of the Nordiques and the battle of Quebec, is it probable that Habs gear would crowd out Nordiques in a Quebec City store without comment?

Is it likely that any fans in either case who objected would then start worrying about appearing to be insecure?

BonkTastic pretty much nailed the thread, but about Roots...

I haven't got any of their stuff in a while, as the girl is grown up now, but I seem to recall a LOT of their stuff has a maple leaf on it, or beavers, or other such symbols. Kinda makes sense to add another leaf to their array. Don't think they even saw it as a sports thing.

Its just frustrating. Wanna drink? Deal with the ****** OC transpo service. Hope you like standing between two big sweaty dudes for 45 minutes on the way home.

Want to drive? Welp, only a beer or two for you! I cant wait for our next arena, and hope its downtown. Its a shame that Im wasting my 20s having to go out the boonies to watch a game. Hell, as a STH for years now, its often difficult to even motivate yourself to go to a game in February when there is a snowstorm and they are playing Carolina. I mean, I have a 110" projector, and can call some friends and drink and eat better food and save a ton of money. If it was in a central location that would never be an issue.
Since when did the team move to North Gower?

The first hits home pretty hard for me. As a life long Philadelphia Eagles fan, it's a hilarious and somewhat inspiring read. Philly fan is a unique beast....and pretty awesome.
This explains alot haha, i also torture myself yearly with this team, will have to check this book out!

Ha, awesome!!! The current group of starters that they've trotted out there the last few weeks has been the worst group I've ever witnessed.

Yeah, it's a great read. Lots of funny and interesting stories!!!

Big ups to Spencer Callaghan for supporting the team! I thought the way he handled it was great. Whatever Roots decided to do after was their call.
