Just a reminder to everyone:

So to clarify:

"There were so many jerk Leafs fans sitting next to me" -> fine

"All Leafs fans are jerks" -> not fine

I realize this is the Jets board, so some latitude will be given. If you want to take shots at an organization that's fine, but let's try and keep it as far away from shots at fanbases.

Thanks in advance.

I agreed with this until I saw the Toronto thread and all of them calling The Jets the Thrashers. It's okay when one person does it but it really rubs me the wrong way when everyone is a thread says that.

Oh the fact that they are making fun of the franchise for relocating and saying they will on their way to Quebec soon... UGH

Yeah I don't see how it's ever okay to poke fun at relocation. It's a really tough situation and has nothing to do with how good a team is.

I'm hoping that we can get a good win out of tomorrow to try to eliminate the bad taste of the road trip further.

That, and I'm always a fan of helping the cause of the Leafs not making the playoffs.

Once again, there's no rule against bashing other teams. We're not going to moderate posts that make fun of organizations. Taking direct shots at fanbases is a different story.

Just use your discretion. This is a great group of posters, and I hate tossing out edicts like this. I just feel it needs to be reiterated given the healthy dislike our fans seem to have for the Leafs. Bash the team all you like, but try and draw the line at bashing their fans. They read this board, just like I'm sure many of you read their board and wouldn't like them making blanket statements about Jets fans.

Bah I was just trying to make the point that it has nothing to do with hockey and really rubs me the wrong way because it is a situation that involves the loss of jobs and well.. I guess I am the only one who finds this extremely offensive. I guess I'll drop it. GO Jets GO

Don't worry. They're still just waiting for Bettman to relocate an NHL team to Toronto. It's all just out of jealousy.

I think we need an epic bro day thread to purge all of this.

I am worried about this game btw. Leafs are a much better road team than home team for some reason. Jets better be ready to play.

Not sure this one's epic, but it's good to go. Bets on whether I fall asleep before I post it at midnight? Think I got food poisoning today, so I'm a bit out of it at the moment.

And I agree - Toronto has waited almost as long as Winnipeg did to get an NHL team. Hopefully it happens in the next couple of years.

From the Leaf games I have watched this year they have played harder than the Jets imo , and as mentioned a tough road team with Carlyle making a return. Motivation will be a key for both sides .

After this 4 of 5 at home we are on the road for like 8 or 9 of the next 12 or 12 games? If we don't have a really strong home stand , the road trip may pretty much make it all uphill for the rest of the season.

Liked him as a Jet, liked him as a Moose coach, happy when he coached Anaheim to the Stanley Cup.
