This is one thing that has consistently annoyed me over the years of being a hockey fan. I'm talking about things like "Toronto Maple Laughs" or "Boston Ruins". I know that this isn't a huge problem with our community here at SCoC, but more with sports fans in general. But seeing as this is the community I visit often I felt like it would be a good place to make my point.
I don't know maybe I'm alone in this, and if so just tell me to shut up and I will. But when I read a post like "And screw Matt Crook for his cheapshot", I know Matt Cooke is a jerk and I want to agree with the author, but all I can picture is the author patting themselves on the back for their "wit" and it ruins the post for me.
The whole thing just comes off as immature to me. I'm just throwing this out there to see if people agree with me or if I'm just being elitist/oversensitive/grumpy/whatever.
