Yes, I did.
Gone but not forgotten, we've asked for these losers to be eulogized by the people who knew the teams best: The fans who hated them the most.
So what? Yet another mistake you made. Why would assume "the fans who hated them the most" are Wings fans? Sharks and Canucks fans hate the Ducks much more than Wings fans. Wings fans only hate the Ducks when we go against them in the playoffs. The rest of the time we don't pay any attention to them.
NOWHERE does it say who those fans are. On my first reading of it, with the intense rivalry in the past few years with the Ducks and Red Wings playing each other all the time, it's not a leap of normal reasoning to assume that that meant the Red Wings. I didn't sit there analyzing who the author was and digging up background information. I read and commented and upon reading, the impression is that it was written by a Wings fan- chill out.
Wow. You must have the absolute worst case of ADHD on the planet. You didn't need to analyze the author or dig up any background information. All you had to do was read the words right in front of your eyes.
It's not only not obvious who wrote it, but points at Red Wings fans. You disagree. Whatever. But you're acting like at the top of the article it reads "WRITTEN BY PACIFIC DIVISION FANS"
Oh, really? It's extremely obvious who wrote it. You referenced the sentence "the fans who hated them the most." Remember that? Well, right after that came this little gem, Here is James O'Brien of Cycle Like the Sedins, fondly recalling the Anaheim Ducks.
Hmmm, Cycle like the Sedins... once again... CYCLE LIKE THE SEDINS... now who do the Sedins play for... does that sound like a Wings fan?
Now that information, which you claimed wasn't even in the article, came RIGHT AFTER the sentence you referenced. How exactly did you not see it? Are you blind, stupid, or did you just choose to ignore it bc you'd been busted?
Regardless, you have yet to try and counter my main critique of your previous argument anyway.
Here comes the ADHD again. I absolutely countered your main critique. You're just too scatterbrained to even remember what it was. Your main critique was that a Wings fan should not have written a eulogy that made it sound like the Wings swept the Ducks out of the playoffs, and that its very existence somehow makes me and other Wings fans look bad.
Here's the problem slugger, none of that is true. Not a word. The article wasn't written by a Wings fan, and it had nothing to do with the Wings-Ducks series. You've admitted the second part... hopefully now you can admit the first part. Your entire argument was based on false assumptions. I can understand why you would make those assumptions, particularly since you didn't seem to pay much attention, but that doesn't change the fact that you were wrong.
I know what you're going to say next, so I'll address it now. This thread was never about the Wings-Ducks series or how close it was or wasn't. You just tried to make it about that to try and find a way make yourself right after you'd been busted for not knowing how to read an article. If you want to start a thread about that series, go right right ahead.
If we're arguing about hockey and the best you can come up with is that I misunderstood who wrote a hockey article, you're in trouble
We're not arguing about hockey. This entire debate is about how you completely misunderstood everything about the article, not just who wrote it. I'm not surprised you don't get it, though. If you actually knew anything about hockey, you would have known who "the fans who hate (the Ducks) the most" actually are, and you wouldn't have gotten yourself into this mess.
