Your teammates hate you

ITT: Why would your team mates hate you?

I'm a completely different personality from the rest of my team. I use the phrases top shelf, poise, and goals; they all use bar down, swag, and ginos. They all listen to country. I listen to metal and rock. They have a sense of entitlement; I expect nothing from anybody. They chirp and I ignore it. I'm just there to play for fun and they are trying to win the league. I'm short and they are taller.

How long could you stay on a team that hates you?

All you've told us is how they're different from you. You haven't written a single thing that demonstrates hatred. What do they do that shows that they hate you? Do you mean they're chirping you or the other team?

I have a tendency to swear a lot and never shut up when it comes to playing... Granted I'm the equivalent of a 3/4th liner but it makes people so mad. My teammates hate that I act like I have a huge ego to piss everyone off.

Most of my teammates like me but i'm sure some of being fake and hate me, don't really care.

I come off a little arrogant at some points , I think i'm the best defenseman on the team but im not some sort of all-star in the league, I guess I bring the same attitude i brought when I WAS the all-star in my other league playing offense on a lower level team (still good competition). I think more of those guys hated me cause it was to the extreme, but I kept putting in goals so i was having fun.

To OP, I quit a decent team because of all the "flow" "sauce" and "ginos/apples" talk so I totally see where you're coming from.

Now, to bring up why teammates hate you, I didn't get called back the next season for a team cause I don't feel every time you take possession of the puck you should fly up the rink like chickens with your heads cut off. So as a defenseman I'd regroup if things weren't open to move the puck up the rink. I'd get yelled at on the rink but I wasn't about to play a way I don't consider comfortable or smart.

Are you new to this team? How old are you?

Hockey players tend to have a pack mentality. If these guys know each other really well/have been playing together for a long time, it's easy to feel like you're from another planet at first. But I assume that you're on the team for a good reason.

My point is that as long as you can play and you don't act like a total d-bag, both you and the rest of the team should be able to put your differences aside. On the flip side, if you prove yourself on the ice and they still treat you like an outsider, it might be time to find a different group.

I've been playing hockey for about 23 years and have played with people from all walks of life. Well over half of them I would never hang out with outside of the rink. But come puck drop, if they had my back and were all-in on the team concept, they were alright by me.

How dare you do a regroup in beer league hockey!

The people who use those terms are generally pretty annoying I've found and I'm fairly young, so I don't blame him.

When I played minor hockey, I didn't like half the players on my team. I would never hang out with them outside of hockey. They were annoying, arrogant, d-bags that all thought they were going to play in the NHL one day. I know that some of my teammates didn't like me either, but the feeling was mutual so there really wasn't anything I could do about it.

I remember I played with this one guy in particular from novice until pee wees. Huge ******. He was actually a pretty good player though (ended up playing in the O but decided drugs were more important, waste of talent) but he was just an arrogant dick. When we were allowed to hit, we used to always feed him suicide passes.

Exactly. I've also never heard a group of guys reference their own stats more than them.

Whipping out their cell phone as soon as they get to the locker room to see if the score keeper made any mistakes is more annoying. As for the OP, who cares. Play your game, watch the other guys on your team closely, pick up all their tendencies so that when you switch teams, which eventually you will, you can lay the wood to each and every one of them and leave them in a crimson mask of blood! The enemy deserves no mercy, mercy is for the weak.

It sounds to me like you hate the team and not the other way around.

I see it as mostly harmless except for when people use it too much and start over using it. Then it gets annoying, seems like they only care about their stats.

Haha. This modern lingo is so lame because these kids are just trying to fit in and do what they think is the "cool" thing to do. They're "bros" in the most pure form.

i've been playing for 10+ years and have never heard any of those stupid terms aside from "flow" and "celly". and btw, i like to think that i do have a nice flow myself

but anyone who consistently uses that "new lingo" is more than likely a major d-bag, and there are plenty of them in this sport as i'm sure we all know

You're going to find d-bags in every sport and recreation, I'm afraid I know when I'm at school studying near the science kids playing Magic the Gathering, they say some pretty nasty things to each other!

I think a lot of people use the lingo somewhere between as a joke and half-seriously, which I'm okay with!

I don't like the lingo, but I don't mind when people use it. As long as you have some people you do like and have fun while playing who cares?

I find people who make a big deal about lingo to be kind of annoying
