I am getting increasingly pissed off with all the bandwagon Hawks fans. I'm originally from Chicagoland and way too many of my friends now care about hockey and its annoying the hell out of me. These giggly, stupid girls who only know about Kane and Toews, and the retard guy fans who sat on their asses the last 10 years all of a sudden have been diehard Hawks fans forever. Coincidentally, they too only own either a Kane or Toews jersey. I'm reaching the boiling point here.

I f*cking hate the Red Wings but if the Hawks make it to the finals, I think I'm going to lose my sanity with the outpouring of retarded hysteria that it will generate- mostly by people who don't know wtf offsides or icing is.

:hawkssuck: :detsucks:

Is there any way they can both lose this series? :lol:


I've been a Hawks fan forever, through all the bad times. I agree...I HATE the bandwagon fans. It happens to any team once they turn the corner, though.


You should LIKE bandwagon fans because you only have them when your team is doing well. It's (Frank) retarded how many pussies complain about this shit every year. Stuff your fukin vag already and enjoy the finals. :moran:
This just in, the Hawks are (Frank) toast and just got butt (Frank) in their own building. Don't worry about those wagon fans, they will be gone soon, lol.
:hawkssuck: :hawkssuck:


Why the hostility? The Hawks made it a lot further than the Blues this season...get used to looking at our assholes from below. :okman:

It's painful to admit it, but I have to: the Red Wings are so impressive. Missing two of their best players and leaders and they just steamrolled through this game. Plus, their fans have made themselves heard at the United Center. When you score on the road in the Western Finals and get that response, that has to be a helluva feeling. Goodbye Chicago Blackhawks.

As for the bandwagon jumpers, it's gonna happen. I also live in Chicago-land and they've come out of the woodwork. But a lot of these people are Bears, Cubs, and White Sox fans....they're mostly harmless. And anybody can go on eBay and buy an old Hawks jersey. I don't read too much into all the '88s' and '19s' I've seen around here. They're good players and they're the future of the team. I saw a lot of '74s' and '42s' at Scottrade this past year.

Agreed on all counts- most unfortunately the first one.

The Red Wings disgust me. Pound for pound, it is simply impossible to out-skill that team. The only semblence of a chance that a team has against them is to combine beating their asses with skill. The Ducks, IMO, were the only team in the NHL that had that mix in all the best ways that coulda beat them in a 7 game series. Maybe the Bruins, but we'll never know. It pains me. Makes them easier to hate though.

As for the bandwagoners, I think the reason it bugs me a lot more now than in other teams and seasons is that the Hawks were bad for a LONG time and the turnaround was basically 2 seasons- incredibly fast. Most teams don't have a period of more than a decade where they can't make noise, and then turn it around in literally 2 years. The Hawks did and magically everyone cares. If it wasn't so sudden and there wasn't such a gap from the last time they were good, it wouldn't bother me as much (as with the Blues right now) but its just BAD. It's way worse than a bandwagon in Chicago- it deserves a name that doesn't exist.

Like you have room to talk. This years playoffs showed that Vancouver fans are very very sore losers.

Here, here. :okman:

Let's face it, hockey needs all the fans it can get. Anyone who loves the sport as much as we all claim to should just be happy that we have all these new fans and not piss and moan about why they became fans.

I also wholeheartedly with GaBluesFan (did I REALLY just say that?????? :aaaa: ) that getting upset when your team starts picking up wagon jumpers is kind of dumb. Everybody loves a winner. If people are jumping on your team's bandwagon, that means they're winning. Who doesn't want their team to win?

The Wings bandwagon is pretty well filled up at this point, but from 1997-02, we were picking them up right right and left. It never really bothered me though, bc more fans are a good thing both for my team and the league as a whole.

One of the worst thing about the hockey culture is how we tend to treat new fans and people that are trying to learn the game. A lot of hockey fans treat people like they're stupid if they don't know everything about the game right off the bat. I've come across more than a few people who were so turned off by this that they stopped following the sport. How exactly does that benefit our sport and our league? It's a pretty retarded attitude to take anyway, because none of us were born with this knowledge; we all started out as "newbie fans," just like them.

I think this is a good, sober, unbiased post. I mentioned above that I think the Chicago "bandwagoners" are harmless. You mentioned people that look down on new fans, but some new fans latch on for the playoffs and don't care until the team wins again. I know people that have the money so they buy a couple jerseys, some playoff tickets and go because it's a good social event downtown. Then when it's over they'll put it all away until they hit the playoffs again.

Some stick with it, some don't, but I don't think anybody is suggesting ALL new fans are bandwagon fans. I think bandwagon fans are ones that jump on when things are good and couldn't care less what happens unless they make a serious playoff run. Just getting my definition for them ironed out. Again, I really think they're harmless and big picture (as you mentioned) they buy merchandise and tickets and financially it's good for the team and league. If somebody doesn't even know the rules or anything else about the game and dogs your team about bowing out early....those folks should be easy to deal with.

I wasn't implying that all new fans are bandwagon fans. I just added that part as an addendum because many die hard hockey fans have a tendency to get really snooty with people that are just starting to follow the sport, and I have a serious problem with that. I think it's very important we that we embrace our new fans and make them feel welcome, rather than push them away.

It just occurred to me the playoffs are running really late this year. Game 7 of this series is scheduled for June 1st. That means a 7-game finals series would end nearly at the entry draft. I remember in past years the finals being over at or near the end of May unless it was an olympic year. Mid June is way too late to be playing hockey still.

The NHL needs to address this. Every year they try and do some elaborate thing to improve TV ratings for the Cup Finals. How about let's not have them in f*cking JUNE?! That's a crazy thought, I know.

No, bump everything back a month. Have the season start first weekend of September after or before Labor Day, season over by the first few weeks in March. Also wouldn't have to battle the NBA for its TV sharing time of its playoff run as much. Seems retardedly simple to me.

I love this team.

No Lidstrom, Datsyuk, Ericsson, Draper, Lilja.

Chelios almost scores the game winner. Ozzie is huge with 30 saves and has had a superb playoffs after an abysmal regular season.

That's about the only way he'll go. Old age won't do it.
