You're well within your rights if you find it silly or juvenile, but many people do not. Some might enjoy the tradition simply for traditions-sake, or because of superstition. Some believe in the juju, others just find it fun, and some might just enjoy not reading "[insert player/coach name here] sucks" every other post.
If you're in the vocal minority that thinks it's silly, no one forces you to participate. Also note, that there ARE ways to criticize without being disruptive. Not everything I posted in here was all rainbows and puppies. There are plenty of other examples from other posters as well.
Did they play a good game? Far from it, but with the vast amount of complaining in here, you'd swear we were watching Florida, Tampa, Toronto, or [insert name of sucktastic team here] every night. (Ironically, Florida and Toronto won tonight.) Call me crazy, but I don't think many people want to read page after page of people bemoaning everything that goes wrong. It gets old. Quick.
So if people dont agree with certain posters that are in charge of the thread, they can't post? Alot of power on here.
Let me ask you this, What positives were there to take away from the game? 1-7 on the powerplay, another blown lead, Sabourin stilll looks bad.
It's just realism. When its good its good, When its bad its bad. Whats wrong with admitting its bad right now.
Maybe start a true game day thread, which allows people to post what their feelings are while watching the game, both good and bad.
