Blues fans.

Quite possibly the least knowledgeable fan base I have ever experienced. Honestly, overall it is quite horrific. This isn't an attack on *this* forum.

Unfortunately I would have to agree. I know we have some knowledgeable fans, but as a whole there are some complete morons out there. It seems like every (Frank) game I go to I get stuck next to one of these tards who yells SHOOOOOOT the second we get the puck over the blueline. Tuesday night I had one guy next to me that kept criticizing the Blues for dumping the puck before changing lines. He was also convincing his friends that Hull won a cup in Calgary and part owner of the AAA Amateur Blues.

That's what happens when you make it a "family friendly" sport instead of allowing it to be the kick ass gladiator style sport it used to be.

And I think we should try to retain puck control on line changes as much as possible. Isn't that what Detroit did all those years?

And fwiw, I yell "SHOOT!" all the time, just to piss people off. :wink: :grin:

I think the problem is the proximity to Illinois. Once you build bridges over the river, it's inevitable that some of those morons will wander across.

So, you don't want our guys to hit somebody? Why?

I don't see your point here... I yell that all the time. I get so frustrated with ice dancing pansies waving their sticks at people. It should be clear that it's usually much easier to separate the man from the puck than trying to pluck the puck away from the man. Go ahead and show off your "elite dangle" from flat on your ass.

If you are 6'+ and 200+ lbs, fukken play like it.

No, I had a lady that was behind me yelling "Catch the Ball" at a minor league baseball game. Then yelled "Drop the Ball" when the other team was in the field. She was the usher.

Ugh, Tuesdays game I sat near this lady who would yell "SHOOT!" every 4 seconds. I can understand wanting the Blues to shoot more, they do hang on to the puck way too long sometimes. But don't yell at the guy to shoot when he has no lane to shoot in, or when he hasn't even gotten into the opposing team's end yet.

Oh, and when the other team brings the puck into the Blue's zone, there's about a 95% chance that they won't score, so you don't have to scream "OHHH NOOOO!!!" at the top of your lungs just because the Flames dumped the puck into the corner.

It almost got the point that I was having trouble enjoying the game because of this person.

I think you sat next to me during one game. Whenever someone would yell "SHOOOOOT," this guy would say "Shoot? WTF?

There is a time to yell shoot and a time not to yell shoot. A lot of fans don't know the difference, hence the frustration from those of us who actually understand the difference.

Agreed -- we've all seen the Blues pass up too many shots this year.....
