I don't doubt I'd dislike the Habs more if I lived there- I don't really like them all that much now lol. But the hatred for the Rangers that we Devils fans from NJ have is the type of intense hatred born from a number of different factors that out-of-town fans may not fully relate to... Having them 10 miles away, growing up going to school and having to work with Rags fans, Rags fans from NJ who choose to root for a NY team, the media, their fans in our building, etc... Its a special kind of hatred between the fan bases and the teams. Its the kind of hate that's unique because of the geography and all these other factors. So you have to understand SD- cheering for the Rags on this board, no matter how much you hate the Habs, isn't something that's gonna be received very well, but I'm sure you know that already anyway lol.
of course cause thats what creates a rivalry. When fans goes at it too and are mixing with each other.
Im 100% certain i'd hate the rangers a lot more if id like in the NY/NJ area lol and im sure you'd hate the Habs a lot more if you live up here haha
