I try not to feed the fire of Rags hate here too much, especially when it's just sour grapes after a crappy season, but I had to post this conversation from work somewhere.

 

Me and one of the cool Rags fans were talking about Marty, and basically came to an agreement that he's the best ever, but is probably washed up. Another Rags fan butted in and this ensued:

 

Idiot Rags fan: I think Messier is the best ever.

Me: Goalie?

Idiot Rags fan: Yeah. I loved the 90s. We kicked the Devils' ass all the time.

 

Why are these people allowed to own TVs and go out in public?

Well in fairness, the Rangers did have our number in the playoffs in the 90s. Not that a guy who thinks Messier was a goalie would know that, but 3 times in one decade they knocked us out of the postseason.

Didn't we beat the Rags like 22 times in a row during the 90's?

I believe we either won or tied 23 straight games against them between the late 90's and early 2000's.

 

That douche probably also loved the 90's because he thinks his acid wash jeans and his Iroc Z with the purple running lights he had custom installed were popular.

It was unbeaten streak and it was 23 if I remember.  Therfore that included ties.  I believe it was from about 1998 to 2001 or 2002.

 

I swear if the Rangers didn't have "New York" in front of their name they would have a fraction of the fans that they have now.  Having that and two full stations devoted to worshipping Dolan-owned teams (Knicks and Rangers) makes it easy to be bandwagon.

There were a fair number of ties in there during that streak IIRC, but it was still impressive nonetheless...and fun!

 

As far as the BALANCE of the 90s go...it was close.  Rangers beat the Devils in the playoffs in '92, '94, and '97.  In '92, they were very clearly the better team, but the Devils managed to take them to seven games...in '94, they were about as close as two teams could get, but the Rangers were very slightly better.  '97 was the most disappointing of the 90s playoff losses by far.

 

But yeah, you've got your fair share of goofus Ranger fans, no question.  And some cool ones too...but man you have to sift through a LOT of goofuses to get to 'em.

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.

Unfortunately, the loudest Rangers fans are the dumbest least knowledgable (kinda goes for most sports, right?)... Older Rangers fans (40-50+) know their role and know how much time can pass between Championship-winning seasons. Younger Rangers fans only know the Sean Avery "fatso" era and, CONVENIENTLY, anything after the Devils' dominance of this area. That's mostly why last year's ECF win was so sweet, it put the reality check on a whole lot of young Rangers fans that have somehow developed the theory over the past 10 years that somehow they're the superior organization. If you watch MSG summer programming over and over again, you might get as brainwashed of that as they are.

 

The way they mouth off, you'd think the Rangers were the Yankees and the Devils were the Mets...

1997 irks me the most. Idiotic crease rule, Richter standing on his head

 

And that stupid Richter "barehanded save" that wasn't even a fvcking save. In fact he just swept the puck with his left hand and almost directly to a Devil. It was a Rag defenseman who cleared the puck away

 

Brodeur leaving his five hole wide open AND missing the poke check on a wraparound play that took about 5 years to develop. That might've been his softest ever.

 

Generally, I always think of the 35 and under Rags crowd as being an army of Nick Swisher clones nyr_052112_312.jpg?w=600&h=445

I was outside sitting at a table at a bar called Moore's in Freehold tonight and knew the game was on. I was planning on going inside with Mrs. Leeds to celebrate a friends birthday but when we got there they were at these tables outside. So I knew the game was in OT and as I was leaving a couple of Rag$ fans were leaving from the inside. I asked how did it go and they said, "Not good"..........and being the douche I am, I laughed in their faces and said it's over Sunday. God I HATE them

Rangers fans.. fvck them.

 

You wanna hear delusional? Here's a comment from a brain-dead Rag$ fan.

 

"Any pathetic team with past "glories" that nobody cares about, is the Devils.  One time, I went to a Devils vs. Senators game with a friend who had an extra ticket and it was horrible.  First, the desperate season ticket sales team tried to trick us into thinking we'd won a prize, so they could try to sell us season tickets and we laughed in their faces.  Then, we went to watch the game and there were cheerleaders dancing around on the mid-level during the game.  I sh!t you not: Cheerleaders at a hockey game.  Then, we tried to watch the game and fell asleep as the Devils tried to play the trap for 60 minutes straight and were defeated by the Sens rather handily.  At least we didn't have any trouble leaving from the game, because there were probably only about 5000 fans in the entire arena, if that.  And the beer line was short for the same reason, so the Devils had that going for them.  It was a nice arena, though.  It still looked brand new, because nobody ever visits it.  "

 

 

Can't get anymore delusional than that.

Reading comments from Rangers fans makes me want to get a lobotomy, I don't believe there's any other fan base with so many uneducated (hockey wise) and just downright rude fans.

Moronic fans wear all colors.  I remember wearing my Devils t-shirt around town before game 1 of last year's SCF and a "Devils" fan stopped me on the street and started talking to me about how the team didn't do very well this season and how Broduer should retire.   When I told them we were in the finals and that Marty was playing great, all he could come up with was:  "really?".
