Some Pens fans feel the need to post ridiculous messages such as the Pens going for the Cup or the Penguins better than the Flyers, Devils, Wings, etc...

We don't know yet how this team is going to gel.
It serves no purpose to overrate our team, except making all Pens fans look bad.
I see multiple threads started by Pens fans with ridiculous posts, and after that, I see some posts like "Pens fans are bandwagonners", "Pens fans are crazy", etc... I won't even mention some Pens fans trolling the other boards.

So from now on, I will more strict on that on this board (and I'm sure my fellow mods will be too). No thread will be started if it is subject ot flaming (example : Flyers are overrated).

There are a lot of newcomers. I don't have a problem with it as long as they behave well enough.

Agree completely. It's quite irritating that we are now the laughing stock of the rest of the boards because of a few individuals.

Thanks for speaking up, Evilo.

All these posters with 40 posts going to other boards and acting like morons...it's ridiculous.

It's just how it was last year with the Steelers at another board I posted at. A few fools ruined the rest of the fan's reputations...

You nailed it HBW.

There was a thread closed late last night on the Trade Rumors board. Not sure if it was removed or not. It had nothing to do with trades or FA.....the guy/kid went on a rant calling on nn-Pens fans crybabies, and then tried to rub in all the signings.....

....luckily, there were a couple of Pens fans there and were able to tell everyone else to ignore the poster......oh yeah...it was that persons 2nd post.

heh, not as bad as when Mario cameback and the Pens official board was flooded with idiots and bandwagoners. It was much, much worse than this. I've never seen so amny repeated threads in my life. And people think teh NHL go watered down with all the expansion teams, man, they shoould have seen that board.

Have no idea what its like now though.

Agree. Good move. However (sorry to have to call you out on it) many would (and did) argue that your "Since I'm homerish" thread could be classified as "overrating" the team and thus making us look bad.

Who polices the police?

As sick as it sounds, the Flyers and Penguins are my two favorite teams. I am thoroughly enjoying all of this!

Let's put it this way. If people don't stop trolling. We will be held in the same regard as Toronto and NYR fans.

We are being held in worse regard than them as of right now.








.....Never saw that one coming.






PGH gets: Chara and a 7th

OTT gets: Rico Fata and a 6th

Sorry, I couldn't contain myself. One of those things that had to be done.

I think people should be allowed to say whatever opinion they have as long its not flaming anyone.

Gel? We dont know how ANY team is going to gel after changing rosters over like EVERY OTHER team has.

Personally I think you have to be a fool with little hockey knowledge to make a ridiculous post stating the Pens arent cup contenders after adding the talent we have. I think thats more ridiculous then stating the Pens are top contenders for the cup now. That makes the rest of us look bad.

Try this. Dont like the opinion? Dont read it or respond.

Btw, I have seen more bandwagon posting on these boards then anywhere and almost none of it had to do with Pens.

Looking around the various boards, you always get a bandwagon mentality. All these boards are half the time is 'whichever the way the wind blows' posts. Half the flamers around here just parrot what another posted before them.

Yeah, the average IQ of this board has dropped like 40 points in the past few weeks.

Hopefully things will go back to normal when the Pens lose a few games.

That won't take long. The team will find it tough to gel immediately after a 1-year layoff and signing all these new FAs.
