Wah wah wah. Big ol baby. I bet you feel high and mighty being a more cordial fan than I. I assure you a place in heaven awaits you for your selfless deeds.
If you don't believe baseless hatred isn't part of sports, then sir, you are not a sports fan. You took me way too literally, it's not as if I sit at home wishing death upon rival players, but my loyalty to team just makes me want to call them losers, even if they say something completely sensible. The fact that you think you're better than I for not doing that, makes me think you need to look at yourself a little more.
Do you realize that you are calling him out for thinking he is better than you for not baselessly hating people who wear a different uniform, yet at the same time you are saying that you are better than him because you do? Guess what, anyone who posts on here is a bigtime Devils fan. We don't need a dick-measuring contest to determine who is a better fan. And certainly if there was a necessity to rank fans from best to worst, blind hatred for other people isn't what I would base it on.
Look I'm no Lundqvist fan either, but I am not so blinded with hate that I can't admit when he says something sensible. It doesn't make me any less of a fan. You don't have to throw logic and reason out the window to be a big sports fan.
"Swim against the tide, don't follow the group, stay away from the majority, seek out the fresh and new, stay away from the poseurs, and don't be a barnacle. Be original, be different, be passionate, be selfless and be free. Be a hockey fan."
