Pertaining to the GDT for ECF game 4.

Postby FreeCandy44 on Fri Jun 07, 2013 12:41 am

Can we please just have one thread where we are fans and enjoy the team we love? The previous threads have become almost unbearable to post in and let alone read. If this is possibly the last game of the season, why not celebrate our favorite team and the sport we love? Hell we are lucky that we even had a season this year. There will be plenty of time to complain when this season is done. But for now, for game 4 and hopefully the others to come...can we please be cool with each other and keep the bile to a minimum? I apologize if this was a unnecessary post, but after dodging all the fire this and give up on that threads, it seems like a worthwhile post.

I yelled at one poster in the game 3 thread due to constant bashing of Crosby some of it was deserving I am sure. The poster left after I said something. I kinda felt bad.

I like the idea but it would never be possible.

I'll make a deal, only mention the good things you see on ice. Then no one will be posting anything.

It's a game discussion, there's a few who only post when things suck but when a couple dozen people all call out Letang for beng an idiot for example it belongs in a game day thread.

I know people can go overboard at times, but why can't you say the team is playing like **** if they are playing like **** in the GDT? I don't think the Game 3 GDT was that bad(there are a few posters that only post negative stuff). The game 2 GDT was bad at times, but the team was playing like hot trash.

Im not saying you can't post something negative, just don't go overboard. As the playoffs have progressed, you can't tell me the threads haven't gone down hill.

I stopped going into GDTs years ago because they're always unbearable.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that is because the play has gone downhill?

Seriously though, I have never seen anything wrong with people criticizing a team they love. It comes from frustration and caring. They have the same heart as the optimists, they just want to win.

GDT's might be the most fun on these boards. I can't tell you how many times I burst out in laughter from what I read. I pull for the guys to win and swear at the guys I think aren't playing like they should, but I'm astonished at the raw emotion people display. I picture some of the posters kicking the dog and breaking furniture, it's a game, and guess what, if they lose tonight we get to start this all over in 4 months, that's the fun of sports you get a do over every new season, so scream and yell and act like you're gonna take the bridge, but remember come October we start it all back up again, so be ready, and to those who take the antics so seriously..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6cxNR9ML8k

Too late for negativity and anger now. I think the GDT will be calm, even if our boys bow out with their tails between their legs. Easy to remember that their will only be one fan base that gets to watch their team hoist the trophy. It is reality.

Yes. We are well past the stage of anger at this point. I predict resigned sarcasm tonight.

this sounds about right. It got to the point where I have 0 expectations and I expect a horrible heart breaking loss so if we win itll be a bonus. But I also will not jump for joy if we win one game because Itll only make me realize that the series should be 2-2 at the least. I might just sit there and just not say a word tonight and just watch. :pop:

this is why we stay in chat during the game.

EDIT: not really. Just too time consuming to wade through most GDTs anymore.

I don't ignore people who annoy me, I ignore people who repeatedly freak out because i'm "bullying" them, so that it becomes impossible for me to do so...and yes, the occasional karl_racki or netwolf of the board.
