Let me re-phrase my line of thinking, because apparently I am not making my definition clear:
What kills me is the hypocrisy of fans "up north" (especially in Minnesota) acting like it's OK for THEM to consider a game "sold out" if all the tickets are sold (even if not every seat gets filled on game night), while bashing teams down here in the Dirty South for doing the same thing.
Ergo, "fake sellouts"--I'm using their definition against them. If the seats aren't all full, it's not a sellout.
Oh, I agree completely with this. Except the last part, because by definition, a sellout means all tickets are sold. But I think we're on the same page on the overall sentiment.
W: That was wonderful!
W: I loved it!
S: That was great!
W: Well, it was pretty good.
S: Well, It wasn't bad.
W: There were parts that weren't pretty good, though.
S: It could've been a lot better.
W: I didn't really like it.
S: It was pretty terrible.
W: It was bad.
S: It was awful!
S & W: Terrible! Eh, boo!
This season isn't as fun as I thought it would be.
I hate our GM. Bringing back players after letting them walk or a trade AND now repeating coaches is just bad management. If he brings back a previous player or coach again, I through with this team. I want him gone.
I swear from the 9:30 mark in the third to the 4:00 mark we didn't control the puck for more than 3 seconds (just enough to try clearing it) and Minny was never even on a PP.
The best part - THEY SUCK. They really, really suck, and we're worse.
Staal has to knock home that breakaway while we're shorthanded - when the teams struggling the stars have to shine.
All that being said, why can't we just bring in some talent for once instead of recycling garbage and hoping it catches fire. If I was Staal I probably would tank this year just to get a high pick that can play with him right away...............
I'm sure it brings a tear to his eye when he looks at the lines and see the guys to his left and right night in and night out. It sure does for me.
