  • Re: Boston University 2010-11 part II - The Hunt For Red November

    I don't post much, but I read every single post in the BU threads. It never ceases to amaze me that posters from opposing teams -- especially in the case of BU and BC fans -- almost always focus on tailoring their interpretation of a controversial event to save as much face as possible. That's not analysis, that's propaganda. This post was kind of preachy and I know not everyone can post at the level of a Puck Swami or Hokydad ( ), but it's becoming a tired act.

      I'm curious...wouldn't "tailoring their interpretation of a controversial event to save as much face as possible" basically come from someone who was wrong about something, but didn't want to admit it? Not sure what you're getting at here.

        I think the NCAA should impliment a new rule stating that if the puck is in any way deflected before it goes in the net, it should only count as a half goal. I think that would be a lot more fair.

          I meant "save face" to mean trying to spare one's program from a sort of weird sense of embarrassment that we all seem to saddle on opposing fans when we think we're right and they're wrong.

          This is not in anyway a personal attack on you, J.D., but I've read some of the arguments you're more than able and willing to engage in and, unfortunately, I don't have the resources to do that if you're looking to hash this out.

            If I had any idea what you were talking about, maybe we could hash whatever this is out

            No worries. I try to tell it like it is. If people don't think I'm doing that or disagree with something I've said--I welcome the back and forth. College hockey is my favorite sport and I like to think the more passionate fans, the better.

                The bottom line is a tipped goal for BU = good (2009 FF) and a tipped goal for BC = bad (anytime). See, when you use Fanboy logic, it makes a lot of sense.

                  If you can point to specific posts which identify anything which supports this assertion, please do so. Otherwise, why don't you stop trolling and focus on your team (which is having a pretty good season, in case you haven't noticed) and less on BU.

                  The constant obsession with BU by BC fans really suggests an inferiority complex, notwithstanding BC's recent successes. Otherwise I'd have to chalk it up to social ineptitude.

                      Your inability to respond to my point in any meaningful way other than to post an inaccurate non-sequitor suggests that the social issues might be underscored by reading comprehension problems.

                          You accused me of obsessing and I merely pointed out that your fanbase wrote the book on obsession. The difference, of course, is BC doesn't have a Parker rump-swab like Scott Weighart writing stories about how 'tipped pucks' somehow minimize BC goals when your team won a national title on a tipped puck. I guess we're talking hypocricy AND inferiority when it comes to anyone from UMass-Kenmore.

                            The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

                              So your response was not a denial? Understood.

                              I don't see anyone on this thread supporting what sounds like a stupid article. Although I don't scour the BC papers for articles on BU like a stalker, a suspect that BC has had its share of stupid articles also.

                                The article he's referring to was written on USCHO, not a BU paper (well it is considered a BU website to some )
