Rags on Twitter

53 posts in this topic

So, if there's one thing we've noticed this year, it's the disgusting nature of the beast that is the Twittersphere after a win or a loss, or a rivalry. Joel Ward knows what I mean.

As this series wears on, it's going to get worse. But, so it begins:

Here is a classy Rangers fan with a beer in his hand in his profile picture, addressing A CHILD, none other than Martin Brodeur's son, Anthony:

"@Smelly_Tweet :@abrodeur30 yo which one is your mom, which one is your aunt? #yourdadisscum"

Oh, and a custom-made Twitter account for the purposes of calling out Brodeur's son:

"@FatsoBrodeur: @abrodeur30 How are you, my favorite nephew."

There'll be more, I'm sure. The least we can do for Brodeur's son is heckle back...

That's really messed up bringing his son into this.

Do you expect anything more? One of the guys that sent the tweet is from Madison, NJ nonetheless.

Let them carry out their childish antics.

People who do stuff like this are among the lowest form of human life.

They'd be just as tough in person as they are on Twitter

I expected this during the Flyers series, not during this one. And yes, we pretty much popped a squat over the Flyers' fans dreams last round but after their game 1 win, I didn't see ANYTHING like this...

That is just stupid. Make fun of Brodeur all you want. Going after his kids is ridiculous. I don't use twitter, but I hope people are really attacking those two idiots.

Agreed.

Pathetic.

Fvck those guys. They're probably just obnoxious band-wagoners.

That's just pathetic and - I hope - that you all understand that we're not all that obnoxious.

Just ignore. Most times bringing attention to it makes it worse.

After further review, it was done by a HS kid. Just fight fire with fire. HS kids do and say dumb things.

I know, I know. Unfortunately, it seems like there are just LESS and LESS Rangers fans I can have a meaningful discussion about the game of hockey with. Everything turns into a discussion about Marty's marriage, and fat jokes.

Some clown yesterday even started talking to me about how "the frontman of the band that wrote the Devils goal-song is a convicted child predator". Really? More fvcking annoying than mosquitoes in my ear.

After that story broke, several teams stopped using that song during their games.

Including the Devils

ILWT Devils Fan Guide: Chants

Anything Else to Know: When the Devils organization went with a different goal song (the Bouncing Souls' "Ole") for a few seasons, this died out. Thankfully, the Devils got a version of the song that sees no royalties given to Gary Glitter and this long time favorite was brought back (I think) two seasons ago

To make matters worse, the little piss ant bragged on Twitter to a friend that he is watching one of the Devils home games in Chris Christie's box.

Between Rock and Roll Part 2 and the Rag's custom-written and performed goal song I'd take a child-predator's song a million times out of a million.

Their goal song is the most obnoxious, bellying, piece of sh!t song there is. The best is when the Devils score and you start singing it right in front of their fans. They fly off the handle when you do that.

Oh I know!!! I never thought of doing that til this year. For some reason, after that last-second Clarkson goal in our shootout win against them this year, something possessed me to look the two most obnoxious Rangers fans in my section in the eye and start singing their goal song. They got so red.

I am not the kind of fan that will curse at other teams fans at games or pick fights. However, to me this is a great work around as if they get pissed at me I can always say I am just celebrating and not cursing at them.

It just proves how deep-down they know their goal song is ridiculous as they are obviously embarassed about it.

I agree. Look, ironically my first ever hockey game was the NJ Devils vs the Vancouver Canucks back in the late 80s (I had to be 5 or 6). I still vividly remember the game. Canucks-4 Devils-3. I then became hooked and I was a Devil's fan.

That stayed until about the late 90s (truth be told, I didn't become a devout fanatic until the lockout). The reason why I started to lose my fandom was mostly due to a few 'friends' who were Devil fans. Unfortunately, I guess the best way to describe them would be your 'typical, fair-weather' Ranger fan: obnoxious, arrogant, and ignorant. It really turned me off hardcore.

It's funny, I don't hate the Devils, per se. I have no problems with anyone on the team. It's just fanbase that I can't stand. Now, I know a few (okay, more than a few) are awesome, but the few *insert any derogatory term* are so outrageous, hateful, and completely irrational, that it's hard see the good sometimes! Hahaha.

And I KNOW you all can say, "Well, I know a lot of great Devil hockey fans...but I know a $hitload of obnoxious Ranger fans!" And I'll agree with that statement! But ironically - coming from the other side - it's the exact same thing!

I mean, it was a tight game yesterday, but I am actually hearing that we intentionally created bad ice (the ice sucked) to hinder your awesome forecheck. Talk about completely irrational.

The hatred and bias bothers me. The ignorance bothers me. People who say that Brodeur is "only good because of the trap" are ignorant. That is such an asinine statement and Devil fans have every right to defend one of the greatest goaltenders to EVER play the game -- and thee greatest stick handler, ever.

But those same defendants will they say Lundqvist is "only good because of his mattress pads." Ignorance.

So all in all, I simply can't stand stupid, idiotic, and ignorant fans...regardless of who they cheer for. :cheers:

There is one unwritten law you don't break in situations like tense rivalries. You never, ever, EVER go after a rival player's family!

I know this should be expected from jagoff Ranger fans, but they've sunk to a new low with this crap

Where is this? Would be fun to RT it to Christie and see if we could ruin that experience for him.

their goal song sounds like someone with diarrhea or something. I mean is it actually a part of a real song o some NY-ism? (like even those who listen to club tracks and hip-hop know all the words to Sweet Caroline and sing along whenever a DJ plays it)
