Cause it's Canadian, and fighting is allowed, even the refs will smack players sometimes, what kind of shit is that?
>>
>>684279770
is that ovechkin?
back on topic, i think it does have respect in the us and canada, but eurofags and other countries view it as a clusterfuck of kids just beating each other up.
Flyers fan here, and i stopped watching playoffs after the caps beat them in game 7.

Stop fighting. Stop all hits. Play hocky.

What's wrong with fighting? Makes it bad ass.

Most people don't understand hockey. I will fall asleep if I have to watch baseball.

>>684280544
>stop fighting
there is only a fraction of the amount of fighting there used to be
>stop hits
ok now you sound like a faggot. Wanting to stop all hits in a contact sport? Go watch golf faggot.
>play hockey
we are trying but all the faggots keep bitching about fighting and hitting in hockey.

Flyers are good but no game on the Montreal Canadiens.

idk but seems like you pulled it out of your own ass

because people want to watch sports they can pretend they were / their kids will be good at, and half the western world doesn't know where to sign up for youth hockey.

I'd watch it more often if I wasn't blind as fuck. It's fucking impossible to keep track of the puck.

i am just a fan because i live in a bad area of south philly. plus they had the cool broad street bullies thing going on a while ago, and that was cool
>>
>>684281399
watch the players, they know where the puck is. Most of them will even be looking directly at it

I don't even know what to say

how can you say that it was not cool to just fucking beat the shit out of everyone and win the cup?

Hockey in the 70's is a different world from what it is today. It's slowly turning into the MBA. I miss it, but I realize why it's changing.
>>
>>684282076
I'll tell you what, it was fucking hilarious when you guys mocked the lightning's 1-3-1.

probably the only thing I approve of the flyers doing ever.
>>
>>684281374
>>684281669
I just cant respect anyone who likes or even doesnt dislike the flyers. How anyone can see how those fans act and not think of that entire city as a cesspool just proves you are part of the problem.
>>
>>684282273
ok, so i'm not a huge hockey fan so i have no idea what that is.
care to post a link or something?

>people want to watch sports they can pretend they were good at

this pretty much sums it up in the USA. Literally everyone grew up tossing a football, baseball, or basketball with friends. Some faggots even played youth soccer bc it's a no-contact sport predicated on making the most melodramatic reaction possible to the slightest brush-up.

But basically no one grew up playing hockey unless they were rich, white privileged kids. There is a huge start-up cost for a kid to start playing any form of hockey because the game requires so much equipment and a specialized venue. With other sports, all you really need is the appropriate ball and patch of land. Hell, we used to play touch football in a parking lot because we could run faster on pavement than we could in grass.

tl;dr playing hockey is way more expensive than playing most other sports, so poorfags can't into hockey
>>
>>684282637
Good topic. Who do you think has the worst fans to the point you can't stand the team?
My vote goes to Chicago and Vancouver.
>>
>>684282637
they take a weird pride in it, too.

Because its a team sport and Amerifags have a fucked up celeb culture.
QB, Pitcher / that one guy that gets lots of HR/RBI, Curry/Lebron.

Hockey also has a hard cap so parity is better than any other sport, another thing Americunts don't like. Can't bandwagon on parity.
>>
>>684279770
Hockey does get the respect it deserves.

In climates that it is appropriate for, that is.

Sadly we have a little munchkin named Gary in charge of professional Hockey in North America.He is more interested in overpriced seats, watered down talent, and turning the game into something it was never meant to be.

There is a problem in North American hockey and his name is Gary Bettman.
>>
>>684282895
I was one of those poorfags.
Still a little bitter I didn't get a shot at being an ice hockey goalie (though I would've sucked, probably)
>>
Depends on where you live. I live in the Czech Republic and hockey is the top sport here. We also treat Jaromír Jágr like a God amongst men
>>
>>684284128
He is a god amongst men.

>>684284128
because he is. he's old as fuck and still doing decent.

did the league end up changing any rules over this? it's pretty hilarious to see the Flyers call the Lightning players chicken, but my god what a boring game that must've been

No shit. Hitting IS hockey, part of the strategy of wearing the other team down.

I hate that whiny little fuck. Go back to nova Scotia is what I say. Be a poor fag fisherman

Although I think it's the funnest to watch, it's so inaccessible in real life that nobody has any experience with it, and thus they aren't drawn to watching it in their social circles and whatnot.

I'm a white Canadian male and I've never played it, but I've played every other sport hundreds of times.

how retarded are you cunt?
literally how retarded are you?
you think soccers chasing shit around on the ground with a stick?
how retarded are you?

I think most people don't have access to an ice rink where they can get into it. It's not like you can go to the park and play it. It's getting more and more respect over the years, though.
>>
lol i might quit lacrosse and switch to hockey, no one fucking likes lacrosse.
>>
>>684285846
Fuck...soccer. Only bowling is more boring to watch.
>>
>>684285846
I think you are retarded. Or too beta to play hockey. There's manly sports like rugby hockey and AMERICAN football. All other sports for faggots. Forgot lacrosse.
>>
>>684285365
>no pads
>no skates
>no helmets
>no gloves
>no mouthguard

enjoy your hobbled, toothless adulthood.

Also, good quality hockey sticks, even the beginner level sticks are more like $20 each. Pucks might be cheap, but they get lost easily and if you're playing without protective gear they will fuck you up.

And rubber pucks don't really move across asphalt that well (or at all really) unless you turn them on edge.

Basically, you just revealed how uninformed and ignorant you really are on the topic. Playing hockey at any level requires an order of magnitude more money that playing football, baseball, or basketball.
>>
>>684284802
I don't think so, but I was like 9 at the time, so I might not remember.

If you do what the flyers were doing, eventually the refs are going to call the play dead and give you a defensive zone faceoff.
>>
In Canada both Hockey and Lacrosse are very respected sports and draw lots of girls, fuck ya bud
>>
hockeys for retards

>>684285950
I played roller hockey in front of my house growing up. You don't need ice to play hockey.

Dumb fuck every Canadian plays with tennis balls and a 5 dollar Canadian tire hockey net. Leagues are expensive but there are so many that provide kids with the equipment and pay the fees for the arena.

>>684286701
no, I was just being stupid.
hours of insomnia have caught up to me.

No rule changes since '11 have really mattered for the 1-3-1

good thing I wasn't talking about Canada then, fucktard.

>>684287780
I'm from the states and all the neighbor hood kids played ball hockey growing up. Skates, sticks, and balls is all you need. We used trash cans for goals
>>
>>684279770
In Canada, Czech republic and Finland it's sport number one. So there is a lot of respect for it. Other fag countries are missing out. Fuck them.
>>
>>684281374
I'm the same way with the Canucks and Henrik Sedin
>>
>>684288128
I'm from the states and none of the neighborhood kids even knew that hockey existed until our middle school PE teacher introduced us to it. We fucked around with ball hockey for about 2 weeks and then never spoke of it again.

Outside of school we only ever played football or basketball. Football when the weather was nice, basketball when we wanted to stay indoors.

They made the finals a few years ago and lost in 6 despite being heavy underdogs the entire playoffs.
>>
>>684282895
You only need to be rich if you plan on going all out with the gear. A pair of roller blades during the summer and a pair of ice skates during the winter plus a stick is all we needed growing up to play with my friends. Hell, for roller hockey we didn't usually use a roller puck or ball either. A pack of tennis balls was cheaper. As far as league play, my family saved by buying my stuff secondhand from Play-It-Again Sports.

Philadelphia has the worst fans period. That's true for all sports except basketball.
