Except the Pants. Buffalo got all the ink about being the most improved team during the off-season. I guess the Panthers don't get any respect due to their location.

Honestly, I don't see it. Like with any other fan base you have bad apples in the mix, but overall I don't think that Jets fans can be categorized like that. I believe you come to a similar conclusion when you subtract the bitterness and frustration of losing the Thrashers.

Here's an example of their maturity level. This was posted on the eve of their first game against Phoenix.

Jets Fans Finally Get To Vent After 15-year Grudge
On the NHL schedule it’s game No. 360 and one of eight played Thursday night. But to people such as Paul Kuzina, this game means so much more.

It’s Winnipeg versus Phoenix. In Winnipeg. At the MTS Centre. For the first time.

“It’s going to be a pretty electric atmosphere,” said Kuzina, who works in commercial real estate and is a Jets season ticket holder. “I think there’s 15 years of pent-up emotion for a lot of people that’s going to let loose.”

He and a few hundred thousand other people around here haven’t let go of the fact that Phoenix was the place the old Jets fled to in 1996 when hockey know-it-alls said the NHL would never work in an isolated prairie city with a lousy economy. Hockey’s future, they said, was in the desert. Now Winnipeg has its NHL team back, transplanted from another hockey wasteland in the deep south, and Phoenix is the place with no team owner, no decent prospects and a struggling economy."

Now forget about the part where they call my hometown a hockey wasteland. These people still want Phoenix to fail because of something that happened 15 years ago. Here's some more.

To our Atlanta counterparts:

"I get that some of you are offended about how we are talking in this thread, and that is understandable. However, as has been mentionned before, it's been fifteen years since we lost our original franchise to a city/state that really has no interest for hockey. And yes because of this, their attendance is fair game for us to mock. So you need to accept that people are going to hate Phoenix and the Yotes. This is human nature. You take something I love away from me for whatever reason, and I'm going to hate you because you hurt me.

So I think for tonight, our Atlanta faithful are just doing to have to deal with our emotions. We've waited for this for years and need to express ourselves."

Now if this was just one guy(and both both quotes do belong to the same person)I could let it slide but I just see way too much of this coming out of their fanbase.

Bongo,

Generally I don't agree with labeling an entire mass of people based on the action of a couple. In my experience with some Winnipeg folks, I let them vent before discussing matters. Many don't know about the exact working of the Thrashers and suddenly shift their position when you explain things. Talk about having an opinion without actual knowledge or understanding of the matter.

I tried that for about 3 months. We're all a bunch of ignorant hicks that never deserved a hockey team, much less two.

Would you shut the H-E-DOUBLEHOCKEYSTICKS up already? Winnipeggers were douchebags about hockey in the South, and then will continue to be...just like the rest of Canada. It's an inherently Canadian trait. Quit defending them and let us be bitter, TURNCOAT.

When you insult anybody like this, you'll get a reaction. I'll take it easy on you because you are honest about being bitter. Something which I admire. Oh...and I'm still a fan of this franchise.

given what I've heard from other Thrashers fans, you may be one of a couple hundred who've decided to support the team now that it's relocated.

Somebody has got to be the enemy. Maybe, I'm part of AS or a relative of Don Waddell, next.
