There are a few of us that have a guess as to who it is.

There seems to be some disagreement whether they are as dedicated as you seem to suggest they are.

I will celebrate that day, as would I celebrate world peace. I would like to think that the Scott's overcoming their doubters with the CBJ would be an easier task, sometimes I am not sure. Would I be kissing your arse? Lol, right.... Blind squirrels have been known to find nuts. Howson and Arniel are bound to get better at their jobs at some point. At least I would hope so.

Quote:
And I will be able to say my commitment and support never wavered.
Since I watch the team almost every game and have a half season season ticket package, I would say that my commitment and support are just fine.

I am loyal to the team, not the moving parts. Meaning they could replace everyone on this team in the off season and I could give a crap less.... I would still support the team again next year.

My dislike of Howson and, now, Arniel has not affected my desire for this team to win. You can be critical of the team and still support them, cheer for them, and follow them. I love my team, doesn't mean I have to like them or who they employ.

What does this mean? If you are a serious poster, you are miles off base with your evaluation of the team and it's fan base. You are going to get people upset and boo when you continue to lose. Get over it already. All this was with the assumption that you are a legitimate poster and that you believe what you type.

It's really hard to take your position seriously though.

I see so you are a "better fan" than the rest of the board?

Were you downtown buying a year 1 PSL? Plenty of people on this board did that.

Do you really think he was old enough to go downtown by himself, then? He's either pimping us, or he's twelve - no adult could maintain that rosey an outlook regarding this team without such massive drug intake as to be incapable of sitting upright, let alone typing posts. Eva, have you been letting Julka at the keyboard?

Unless of course there is a preseason soccer match which conflicts with a hockey game. Then, the ranks of the mighty ACA go from 7 to about 3.

Lame. Self-promoting. Insulting lower bowl fans (who largely pay the bills, btw).

As leek mentioned, there have been a lot of people steadfastly supporting this team longer and stronger than the half-dozen ACA drones.

Another little ACA anectdote. Apparently, one of the members was "thrown out" of section 216 a few games ago. CBJ fans in that section objected to something she was doing and asked the usher to hush her (little poetry there.. "usher to hush her") She claims to have been BANNED from that section, much to her indignation and horror.

Now, after a few inquiries, the rest of the story is that she didn't actually have seats in 216. She scrambled over from cheaper seats, then evidently caused some sort of ruckus. Apparently she doesn't understand why the people who PAID for their seats in that area might object to her freeloading boorish behavior. Sit in the seats you pay for or pay for better seats.

Par for the course.

I'd love to see them do it. Anyone here will tell you that there is no greater Howson fan here than me. But I'm not sure anymore if they can.

I fully expect that our time will come. I don't despair for the CBJ. But I think Arniel is done here, and I fear for Howson's future as well.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

I think we all knew that Arniel was done after "the" press conference. Unfortunate. However, I also choose to remain hopeful that we will make the right moves and non-moves to get back on track.

Actually that's not true. But I'm not gonna get in to it with you. Let's try not to spread rumors, ok?

Well people my gig is up. My contact at the team has not been happy with my results, and now since I told you all to kiss my a**, I have been cut off.

I want to tell you all so you know the truth. The CBJ were hooking me up with tickets and fan bucks in exchange for disseminating positive information to change the perception about the team. They weren't happy with my results as obviously I wasn't changing anyone's mind on this board. They threatened to cut me off if I didn't get better results, I was getting frustrated and now I'm cut off..

Others have gone online to opponents message boards to spread the word about ticket packages to games, these folks have been more successful as other fans have been attending games in higher numbers.

I guess there just isn't enough lipstick in the world for some pigs.

I'm sorry to have attempted to deceive anyone here. Hopefully no hard feelings.

JJ

What a crock. I have no clue what this post is about, but I seriously doubt the CBJ cares enough about this message board to do anything you claimed.

Perhaps you should buy a ticket package. Hey, I know! Join the Arch City Army, they have cheap tickets!
