    In response to ipotnyc's comment:

    He's a big bruins fan, and I have no doubt he cares deeply about the team. Thats why he gets so negative. Great poster when he isnt being a negative nelly. He's a fellow goalie who wears his emotion on his sleeve.

     

    Let me explain a hypothetical here because I know where SoxFanIL is coming from:

    1.Two fans - Fan A and Fan B - are watching their team:

    2. Fan A and Fan B both love their team passionately.

    3. The team and its players are paid employees doing a job,  not volunteering to wear a logo.

    4. The team loses a big game.

    5. Fan B takes it out on the team.

    6. Fan A  takes it out on Fan B  

    7. Which fan has  issues?

    You know what Stockholm Syndrome is? When it comes to "sports culture?"  I'll tell you this much, there's a lot of folks who have a form of that here, and SoxFanIL is NOT one of them.

     




    BRAVO!!!

    I must admit, though, that stevegm is right - you should never get to high or too low about your team.
    So what do the Bruins have to do? I don't subscribe to the "only Claude Julien's system makes them a contender" theory, this team has enough talent, and with the exception of 2011 it has been underachieving for the past four seasons, and they are yet again on the verge of another epic collapse like in 2010.
    Here are a few things that, to me, are indisputable:

    - this team is maddeningly inconsistent

    - the Bruins defense is great, but this should not lead them to assume that they can finish games with a lead in "prevention mode", as we have seen multiple times over the years (and nothing has been done about it)

    - their transition game is second-rate, at best

    - their power play has been abysmal for years, and nothing has been done about it either

    The inconsistency issue leads me to believe that there might be a lack of leadership. Cedfano and Bergie strike me as the quiet types; maybe this team needs somebody more vocal who will address issues in the locker room before games, not in interviews after another disappointing non-effort and defeat. (This interview thing has been another indicator for me that something is fundamentally wrong with this team - they will tell the media that they weren't prepared and that they need to play better next game, but will they tell their own teammates?)

    The rest are coaching issues. Maybe Claude Julien should not be fired if they lose tonight - a six-year contract extension (PC should be flogged for that) will probably prevent that - but he must change his approach, and he must get rid of Geoff Ward, period.

    SoxFanInIL has counted to infinity....twice!

    SoxFanInIL was what Willis was talking about.

    SoxFanInIL knows where Carmen Sandiego is.

    SoxFanInIL can touch MC Hammer.




    That's Gold!

    Win or loose, critiquing the team is fine.  It can lead to interesting discussions.

    However, if the extent of the critique is "they suck!", without even a halfhearted attempt to analyze and understand what happened and how it happened, it really shouldn't be surprising if the response to the critique is equally in-depth.

    • ½ cup baby carrots, cut in quarters lengthwise

    • ¼ cup Cajun spice mix
    • ¼ cup of Hidden Valley® Original

    • 1 can (2¼ ounces) sliced black olives, drained
    • 1 large white onion, peeled and sliced into ¾-inch thick slices
    • 1 package (6 ounces) mixed lettuce
    • 2 teaspoons black pepper
    • 8 chicken thighs, bone-in
    Instructions

    3. Place chicken on grill over indirect heat, covered for 25–30 minutes, or until temperature reaches 175°F–180°F.
    4. Rub reserved spice mixture on both sides of onion rings and place on grill with chicken for the last 15–20 minutes, until tender but still crispy.
    5. Remove chicken and onions from grill. Discard chicken skin and remove meat from bone, leaving it in large pieces. Set aside.
    6. In a large bowl, mix lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, olives and cheese. Top with chicken and onion rings. Drizzle with barbecue sauce and ranch dressing and line potato chips around outside of bowl.

    Couple that with such a strong desire to come running here and dance on their graves with "told ya so's" and its no wonder the respect is gone for a long time poster.  

    The desperation to be right that "they suck" seems to have crossed the line where the poster is actually rooting against them so as to avoid the insecurity of being upset when they fail.  Coming here to celebrate a loss in Game 6?  Before the series is even over?  Pathetic.  Classic defense mechanism -- like breaking up with someone before they can break up with you so it hurts less.  It's weak.  Strap on a set.  It sucks when they lose, but when they win...nothing like it.

    It's always going to be hard to root for 1 team in a tournament of 16.  Your team will almost definitely lose.  If you can't handle losing, play NHL 13 on rookie all day instead.  Otherwise, just accept that the Bruins are an imperfect team that probably won't win the Cup.  But it's fun watching them try.  Try to enjoy it.

    He's just trying to get a lock on the "Fairweathers" and ipot isn't giving up the award without a fight. Ipot's useless little story about fans A and B was hilarious. I had no idea he and soxfan were just taking out there frustration on the team. Let us all know how the team reacts to it but I for one couldn't care less what weak minded losers think of the Bruins.

    3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
    4. Grill beef on the preheated grill, basting frequently with reserved marinade, until desired doneness is reached, 5 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

    Hear 



    I like post of ipotnyc

    Makes sense -  I always say You 're only as good as your last job. Its a business you get commended when you do well you get chit  when you do bad - accept it ! 

    I wonder if some ever experienced work pressure. Once again it's a business for everyone including the fans. We are the customers so when we are satisfied we commend although e even this can be debated and when we arenot satisfied we boo or whatever other form of expression
