When did choosing what team to root for and hate become a political party platform?

Dude, it's just sports. It's just for fun.

So you'll sooner root for the team thats past involved more criminal activity than the latest episode of Cops?

They are the failures. I hate them. I'd root for ANYONE over the Flyers and Rangers. Anyone.


No son, I'll root for a team that is honest and didn't invent or fabricate rules to make their monopoly legitimate.

You'll learn this in school, and you'll learn that an architect knows nothing about weight bearing structures.

Here is my theory on why the flyers will most likely sweep the Habs:

It all has to do with matchups. The habs are a less talented version of this years Devils. It's hard to characterize each team acuratelly, but I think this would be easiest to simply compare teams. Both Pittsburgh and WAshington are teams that win by sustaining zone pressure and scoring the pretty goals. The habs weren't a great matchup for either of those teams. It's more like those were the only teams the habs had a fighting chance in beating. I think the habs are basically last year's canes. The canes were able to hang in there against those defense first type teams. But they couldn't beat the pens offensive system. For the habs, they're able to hang in there against those offensive teams, but they're not going to be able to handle a team that plays the griddy physical style of play like the Flyers.

For the most part, the playoffs only take you as far as your good matchups go. You'll get those close series where teams are evenly matched, and the character and skill of each team's players will be put to the test. THe teams that can avoid bad matchups and win the evenly matched series will go the furthest.

Anyway, habs are done in 4, maybe 5 if they're lucky.

C'mon DM.

It is better than the Habs winning it. If you research you'll find the Habs invented an illegal law where Quebecer's could only play for the Habs at their first refusal.

All their cups are suspect as are the Yankee$ championships, bought and paid for, NEVER earned.

I didn't even know VS was running an early game tonight. They're playing with fire doing a doubleheader in the conference finals. especially with CI dead for the season.

You can thank NBC for forcing this on them by taking the Hawks/Sharks series which SHOULD have started on Saturday!

Pay homage to the INCREDIBLE scoring goalie!!!! :-)

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease


CRASHER's official list of high stick victims from this forum:
gionta182, devilsfan26 .... WHO'S NEXT??

2005 Fantasy Football League Champion... Bow to my Football knowledge !!!!!!

2003-04 NJDevs.com winner of the Masterton Award for Dedication to the Devils(still proud of that one !)

4, Four (!?!?) Time (2005-2008) NJDevs.com winner of the Whoever the damn Award for the funniest poster in the land is named after...(geesh... post pressure, but I seem ok with it!)
TWO TIME (2005, 2006) Award Winner and the man who can show Jeremy Roenick what a REAL loudmouth is all about.... hell this mouth roars SO loud, they retired the DAMN AWARD!!!! But how do you be emotional about an award for being most emotional when you're sharing it?

2008 NJDevs Stanley Cup Winner for best overall poster... where's my damn ring?

June 6, 2007... the NHL dies just a little bit.....

So will Montreal ever score a goal in this series? They've actually outplayed the Flyers tonight and they're still losing.

I'm trying to figure out what it is about the Flyers that makes other teams simply lose all of their offensive ability when playing them. God knows it is not their goaltending... :closedeyes:

outplaying is relative. everything the Flyers are doing is around the Montreal net. Montreal can't get near the Flyers net. it's the exact same thing as our series. Montreal might play harder than we did in the end, but that'll be the only difference.

this looks like a 5 game series too. unless the crowd in Montreal can buy alot of calls.

Yeah, it feels like I'm watching a replay of the Devils-Flyers series. I agree it will be over in 5.
