Self-Righteous? The writer of the article is a self-righteous toolbag if you want to call someone self-righteous. Honestly anyone who believes that being bitter about people's approach to a team does anything but make you look like a tool is as... O my I am done... I don't know whats wrong with me but this seriously makes me angry.. this constant Whining because of band wagon fans GET OVER IT

I could do without seeing a dead anything & the fascination guys have using female products as adjectives, but after that, could have been somethng I read here.
We have your reactionaries & your steadfast beliefers, :wink: then a few like me, who jump from one to the other. Opinions dujour.

I've not heard loud boos from the fans.

the article is a little harsh, no need to trash other Pens fans I think - but anyway, it's a great time to be a Pens fan as far as I'm concerned...

Actually a good synopsis of where this team is. Leaving out all the injuries. The bridge is there, the river is deep, but don't jump yet. The water is dang cold.

I give this paper an "A". It is technically accurate, grammatically correct, and contextually timely.

An overall "win".

I'm going to copy and paste this for all threads of this subject:

Because you think the team sucks doesn't mean you're "off the bandwagon." True fans can be realistic, too. Bandwagoners are the ones who don't care about the team when they're losing. I don't understand why there is so much confusion here regarding this issue.

The Pens are borderline putrid this year. I'll still watch them, though. But if feeling that way takes me off the bandwagon, that's fine. I have no interest in delusion.

"fire yeo" "fire mt" "staal sucks" "scrap the team and rebuild, we suck"

those are not constructive criticism. The author was not saying constructive criticism is not ok. THere is a big difference between constructive criticism and what the author was referring to. Most people can tell the difference. It's just as asinine to paint this guy as saying you have to think your team is great to be a fan as it would be if he said that all criticism is "hating."

The current Penguins team has spoiled many fans. Very few people who "criticize" the team take into account that teams that constantly dominate the standings have been building their roster for over a decade. The Pens have had about 4 years.

They've been hearing some boos at home, but only when there's an obvious lack of effort on their part. I don't think the fans are booing the team because it's playing poorly, I think they're booing the team because it's playing poorly and several players don't really seem to be too put out by that.

I guess when you're 24, and your "early Pens memories" are of them sucking in the early 2000s (by the way, didn't they lose in the ECFs in the early 00s), you kind of don't have a sense of what LONG-TIME Pens fans have been through. And my guess is that most of the, how you say, "haters" are actually those that have been through a lot more than that blogger. Maybe you had to live through things like a 42-game winless streak at the Spectrum to really appreciate the ups and downs of NHL fandom.

Most of the bandwagon jumpers don't even know enough about the team to even make a reasonable critique.

Actually, I'm 24 and my some of my oldest Pens memories are of them missing the playoffs in 89-90. I'm sorry I wasn't born earlier, I guess I'm a "bandwagoner" since I missed the seventies. I honestly can't figure out which is more annoying: fans that keep crapping on the team, as mentioned in the article, or fans that continue to crap on other fans.

I like "Ghetto Sports with Manny" in the "I Love Living in Queens" article. And the graphic in the "HOPE" article is great too.
