Revered as a saviour one day, despised as a traitor the next.
Jerry Seinfeld was right -- we don't cheer for players, we cheer for laundry.
Shows what passion you have as a fan.
Just for the sake of argument let's suppose your team lost in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Do you think any sentiment would be expressed by any fans?
I'm not saying get too carried away like starting a riot or anything...
Awesome, Badhab! I swear this board has some seriously talented and creative writers!
I suppose you're right, if by 'creative talent', you mean recycling the same tired old line. Yep, great "creativity" here amongst the contributors to this forum!
You guys are missing my point entirely.
You're all choked that Iggy snubbed the Bruins and chose the Pens instead -- acknowledging what everyone knows -- that the Pens are the consensus picks to get to the Final from the East.
My previous point remains valid -- if the Flames trade had originally been with the Senators, but Iggy said "I'd rather play for the Bruins", then you'd all be rejoicing, and not worrying about whether or not a waiver was signed, or who is being "honourable" here.
But, if you'd rather bad-mouth one of the most respected players in the League, just because he prefers the Pens, and want to keep trotting out the old tired "riot" b.s. everytime I post, then, well, whatever turns yer crank.
