I'd refer you to what I said earlier... it's not all bullshit.

And STLElevation that's great.

I hope this thread at least increased the interest for next year... you can at least say in your face Dave if America repeats.

Or, cujo you suck mighty ass.

That's fun shiz too.

The only reasons I've gotten so far as to removing the signature are of the type "Nice sig, grow up" or "Dave is stupid".

Not valid reasons. Unless someone can give me a good reason to change it, it won't be changed. Simple as that.

As I said before:

"Chill out. It's just a stupid signature."
I am offended, as an American Citizen, to see USA with an X through it...even if it is just for the hockey team.

You must support terrorism too! You really are iggnorant, aren't you.

Like the estimable zoney said...it's an international logo. It's a flag. It's quite different.

None of us want to come off as rabid, flag-waving Americans here, but that is much different than St. Louis logo, or Toronto. And if someone had taken offense to a team logo, they would have been asked to remove it too.

If you had a Russian, Canadian, Swedish or Czech signature, I would still have asked for it to be removed. I follow non-American teams, too.

Im there.



by the way, games are won and lost on many a bullshit call. havent seen the highlights granted that, but US won and thats that.

the cardinals lost a world series to the royals over a crap call in the 80's... was it 86? either way, i wasnt alive until 87 when they lost to the twins.

giants appeared to get screwed in the playoffs last year against the 49ers on the last play of the game, but i forget exactly what happened.

point is- games are won and lost many times on the officiating and thats that. no reason to get ripshit over it, to the point of offending people. fine to be pissed, but dont have to offend other people.

unless you know, its costing the cards or bosox a series.

Yeesh, you need to calm right down.

Like I said, there's a double-standard here.

The precedent was set during baseball and hockey playoffs. I'm just continuing the tradition.

You're the only one I see who's blowing this thing way out of proportion here.

The USA has the X through it because it is in the middle of the logo, not because I hate the US and support terrorism.

Yeesh. Zeus, give me strength.

Where were you 4 pages ago to agree with me guy?

If our American brethren knew the extent of obsessing we have over this tournament, you might have sympathy for the plight of DaveC.

Don't marginalize his flag-waving if it comes in a different form. We're all assholes underneath our sheaths of ignorance.

Sociable anyone? I've had a few myself I must say...

one of the problems apparent to me is that your blame for the canadian loss (in large part, at the very least) was explained as being placed on the referee. yet your signature suggests the american team did something wrong.
something doesnt add up. the americans played a good game. as you said somewhere, it was a fairly even tilt-apart from the bounces.

as a devout canadian, you surely shouldnt be shocked that your signature is raising the ire of americans. such outrage is to some extent warranted, based on the person obviously, and entirely predictable.

in spite of the referee, the americans deserved to win just as much as canada. bounces happen.

I think Avsgirl has spoken too. It is about a country, and a flag. I would not do the same to the Mable Leaf or Canada...or any country for that matter.

Instead of praying for "strength" - try "maturity"

You obviously didn't read my previous response:

Quote:
The signature is not saying "Death to American Hockey" or anything of the like. It is showing my extreme disappointment with the result.
