I hate the NHL General Forums

Any shark topic in that forum is constant trolling and bashing the sharks, and mocking our playoff success and their fans.


Remind me why I post there again? and these people get away with actually trying to flamebait...

Your problem is you're not discussing the topic of fans who bang on the glass during games.

To the former: yeah, the main boards are pretty bad. any time you try and merge multiple fanbases together there's bound to be trouble

To the latter: what can and can't pass on the main boards is different than the team boards. There has to be some leeway for the main board because of its communal nature. So while we might not like it or might think that it's petty/stupid/immature/whatever, there's nothing to stop them from cracking jokes as long as they don't go overboard.

Unfortunately our Sharks will be the punching bag of playoff jokes until we actually have some success in the playoffs

I just hope it doesn't turn into the Cubs and hangs over our heads for 100 years.

You have to go in there knowing that you'll never make a point to some one who doesn't already agree with you.

I think I summed it up fairly accurately in a thread a few minutes ago, but here's the general form of most main board replies:

HURPPPPP DURRRRR [popular comment about team/player that was a conclusion arrived at by reading others opinions rather than actually watching that team/player] DURRRRRRRRR!!!

Rinse, repeat.

The main board is a brutal car wreck. I'm horrified, yet I can't look away. There are times when I'm reading a thread and I truly start to think that every post is just brilliant sarcasm, and then I remember that I'm on the internet and people are that ridiculously stupid.

Yep, its Ridiculous. But like other posters, you just join them. And it takes the fun away from them.

This is all they write " Joe Thornton is tin man" , " SHarks are chokers for life". I meant Joe Thorton.

Most of the Joe Thornton hatred on the main board is perpetuated by Montreal fans, who have had a terrible obsession with him since he playoff series in 2004 when he absolutely smoked, and injured, a Montreal player on a hit. Couple that with the fact that he plays for the Sharks, and you get all those "choker" threads.

You just learn to ignore it. I just tend to A) join in the fun or B) laugh at the fact that most of the haters are fans of teams that are NHL doormats. Once in a while, you join in the fun.

The main board only exists to argue that ovechkin/crosby are better then the other and crosby couldnt score as many points if malkin wasnt there and ovechkin wouldnt even score 20 goals without backstrom. Then the always favorite insert player is classless and the refs just screwed my team.

I took a long break from the main boards and i try and stay clear but most days im too bored at work. Luckily there are a few posters who make the main board bearable.

At least the main board is better than the trade board, which is a microcosm of the DSM-IV.

I ignored the main boards for about a year, but just started venturing out there, Yes it is a train wreck, but so much fun. There are some golden threads in there (Photoshop).

Yes the Sharks get flamed, but so does every team, and every person. Just go in there knowing that and you will be fine.

I learned to hit the ignore button on certain threads. I like being able to post on these boards and certain threads/posters would have been HF suicide

While the constant quips about the playoffs are annoying, I can't stand the abuse Cheechoo takes. It's like the 28 goals pre-Thornton and the 37 goals after the Rocket Richard year don't exist. And it is never mentioned that his decline is due to multiple sports hernia surgeries.

Are you referring to the Kyle McLaren hit/elbow to the face on Richard Zednik?

Exactly this, only in the broader sense of, "They don't know **** about the sharks, and keep running their mouth like they do."

If i had a nickel for everytime I've seen someone on the main board say that Pavelski is our third line center, I'd have some decent money.

I'd say the worst part of the general forum is that most people who post there, just like most of the NHL world, is in the Eastern Time Zone and either 1.) Never see Sharks during the season or 2.) See them half-asleep.

The only time they really watch them is the playoffs (or those few games they do play in the Eastern Time Zone) and thus that's all they can comment on.
