Thanks for all your explanation... i was thinking something like that.
I mean it's natural to feel the way you feel. To finally have a sweet revenge and some ammos to shut up all these rangers "fans"...

I get all that.
But here. Here... in this particular forum ? DevilsFan26 just say that "this site is pretty much the only place we have where we can just talk hockey with other Devils fans" ... Aren't you tempted to only talk about hockey & Devils ... and not the same hateful routine that you have to endure all the time " outside " ?

Again. I don't wanna sound direspectful and i'm not here to change the way you wanna deal with this relation. I'm no one. Sometimes, i'm just amazed by the number of post about the Rangers.

For me it's the perfect victory when my enemy aren't even relevant.
But i guess, rivalry is fun.. and if it's one of the engine that make this great great forum have so much life, keep going like that !


It's like I said, every now and then the hatred just needs to be vented. There really weren't that many posts about the Rangers during the season (I personally was so focused on what the Devils were doing I didn't really pay the Rangers much mind, especially when it became clear that the Devils weren't going to catch them in the standings), and two things have influenced the number of Ranger posts as of late:

1) The fact that the Devils played them in the ECF...if they hadn't you probably wouldn't have heard as much about them, and

2) Matteau#32 poking his head in here to stir the pot, and confidently stating time and time again that the Rangers would take the series.

Beating the Rangers in the playoffs is a big deal around here...before that, for the most part they'd clearly had the Devils' number in the playoffs, and that's a major sore spot when it's your chief rival. And what makes it more annoying is that when the Devils beat the Rangers in the playoffs in both '06 and '12, Ranger fans couldn't give the Devils credit either time...it wasn't what the Devils did, it was all about what the Rangers didn't do.

Anyway, the latest round of Ranger hatred is just about over, so you probably won't see too many more posts about them. We'll have enough on our plates soon enough, with free agency, another lockout looming...

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I also move to make it a board rule that we close any Ranger or Ranger fan related thread with the following three words: HENRIQUE!!! ITS OVER!!!!

This is the only place we can really vent. There's something to be said for that as well as for intelligent hockey talk. I come here for both, hence I don't mind Matteau being on the board, but I'd have a problem with him poking his nose in this thread.

I hate talking to Ranger fans so much that when I meet new people I don't even mention hockey and if I find out they are Ranger fans then I don't even bring up the subject.

99.9% of the time I'd rather not talk about hockey then have to talk to a Rangers fan. fvck the rangers and their sh!t fans.

The older I've gotten the less I want to talk to or deal with fans of other teams. fvck em all.

I've been lucky. There are a couple of real cool Rags fans at work. They even tell the rest of the Rags fans to shut up so I don't have to. I told one of them he was a Devils fan who rooted for the wrong team, and he didn't even take it personally because he got what I meant. I know they're the exception -- there are a ton of moron Rags fans in the building, and 2 or 3 good ones, but it makes me more willing to talk hockey and see where it goes.
