  1. Okay.... what? As a Canucks fan and season ticket holder who attended that game 7 i can most certainly say there is no way any canucks fan inside that building or watching it anywhere spared a thought about McSorely for even a second. The Canucks lost that game because they were tired, injured, and simply beaten down by a better team who deserved the cup. No one blames anyone for that loss except for the fact the team was done mentally and physically after game 5. There is no McSorely voodoo with the Canucks at all. The "many people" you claim believe that are probably tweekers on Hastings and Main. And If YOU genuinely believe that, i want what your smoking.
  2. Would it not be fair to just open up 1 or 2 sections for away fans? Segregate them like they do in European soccer, make a cap on how many tickets are available, sell the lot of tickets in that section(s) to the Blackhawks, then they can sell them to STH or whoever online as a "travel pack." Both teams make money on it and that way the Hawks fans can still go to the game.
  3. I can't stand cheering the thought of cheering for either.... still, the thought of seeing Kesler raise the cup makes me wretch personal trauma*. Anyone brave enough to make a prediction? I think the Hawks will take it at home, in six. *to quote Mr McMahon Weren't you a Canucks fan?
  4. 5: Cowdenbeath FC (Scottish Football) 4: Calgary Cowboys (WHA) 3: Ottawa RedBlacks (CFL) 2: Connecticut Whale (AHL) 1: Scunthorpe United (English Football)
  5. I don't think brakepads are on roller hockey skates. Stopping is almost the same...not as crisp on wheels, but it's the same form.I had brake pads on my rollerblades and so did most of my teammates, but the league We played in banned them (and forced us to remove them) cause they would damage the tile playing surface.
  6. Agree fully with that prediction with Celtic. I believe that their squad is not strong enough for Europe, especially if they get drawn against a 3rd place UCL club. The team is too soft mentally and the defense is crap. They have the strikers, and with Guidetti available for the Round of 32 that will help us tremendously. But they just need to bring in a name defender and DUMP Efe Ambrose. He single handedly cost us the tie against Juventus in the CL 2 years ago and has shown no positive qualities whatsoever in the games I've seen him play since. This team has what it takes to make it to the round of 16, but they need to bring in a good defender in Jan and make Celtic Park 100% available. The game today only had the lower bowl filled. I get that its just the Europa League but its still a major European competition, having the stadium at max capacity is what makes it such an intimidating place to play in, and that alone can give us an edge over big teams.
  7. They cant just convert the empty space into standing room? Add bleachers or something.
  8. When I was starting out in hockey, I cross checked Dave Babytch's son into the boards from behind and almost broke his neck.
  9. I love how Legia Warsaw thinks Celtic are the villains here because they refused to comment on Legia breaking rules that UEFA enforce. It's your own damn fault, take responsibility and deal with the consequences.
  10. Does anyone know what it feels like to have a rusty dagger wrapped in barbed wire reamed into your heart? Cause losing 1-0 at Celtic Park to a team from Slovenia must feel pretty damn close to that.
  11. Material of the uniform. It's so thin and prone to damage it's absolutely ridiculous. I have 3 Adidas shirts (Whitecaps, Liverpool, Scotland) and they're miles ahead of nike as far as quality goes. Two of my Nike Celtic kits already have minor rips or deteriorating material. I can live with the Adidas stripes as long as they can maintain hoops going down the arms. Nike is just absolute garbage.
  12. Unpopular opinion time: I would love to see Adidas take over Celtic's kit manufacturing. The quality of Nike's kits are crap.
  13. I live in a very rough part of an otherwise beautiful city. Being associated with a large generation of alcoholics/druggies/scrubs without common sense or direction in life doesn't help either. Take a walk through downtown Vancouver on a Saturday night and some jackass is gonna try picking a fight with you for absolutely no reason within 20 mins. @BigBubba I figured someone here would look at what I said as story about hating on natives, when it isn't at all, someone always finds a way to take it the wrong way. That's why I put that down.
  14. Top 5 full looks (H/A/T) this past season (13/14) 1. Chelsea 2. Arsenal 3. Real Madrid (Dat Orange kit...) 4. Barcelona (especially when they whooped Celtic 6-1 at the Nou Camp, beauty matchup) 5. Roma HM: Seattle Sounders
  15. I it wasn't obvious enough, the city of Vancouver has the WORST fans. And this is coming from a Canucks fan **NOT BEING RACIST AT ALL HERE, PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS THE WRONG WAY*** Earlier this past season I actually took physical abuse for wearing a Canucks jersey in my own city. I was walking through the Native Reserve after a Blackhawks/Canucks game viewing party at a friends house (he's native) and without going into details, a group of Native Blackhawks fans decided to jump and assault me for being a "Whiteboy with a poor taste in hockey teams." I know a lot of Natives in my city like the Blackhawks as their "second" team for obvious reasons, but it's been getting out of hand since the Hawks have become a dynasty. Almost all the Natives I'm associated with (friends and mutual friends) are now all hardcore Blackhawks bandwagoners. I get it, they're good, and they have a badass native as their crest. But WHY go and jump fellow citizens of the city that you live in, for supporting the local team. It's just ridiculous.
  16. The quality of the league was already :censored:, long before the administration of Rangers and Hearts. Keep in mind, we went down that same road 20 years ago, but we had someone come in and bail us out at the last minute.
  17. Ambrose is a :censored:ing plug. I wanted him gone after turning the ball over on EVERY goal against in our home leg vs Juventus in the UCL a while back. This only makes me loathe his presence even more. This Celtic team is turning into a complete disaster. They need to sell Forster for big $$$ and FAST if they hope to break even this year. Attendance is :censored:e, the quality of the league is :censored:e, and no UCL money is gonna kill us unless we pull off a miracle or manage to make an unlikely run through Europa League.
