I misread what Mafia wrote, Siouxperfan said to calm down and I agreed. I have post under one name. Jim Dahl can ban me from the site if I am lying. It’s not unheard of to have more than one person on this site that agrees with the concept that most coaches have embraced the new name while Berry, the REA and the presicous Sioux forever snowflakes have not.

Away from the board for nearly a year and come back to this silliness. Presious. I bet you're still not attending games, too.

Another hockey poser.  These guys are embarrassing.  Great message, poor presentation.

 

What are you taking issue with?

It has to do with the Fighting Sioux part.

Unfortunately, the hockey team has yet to embrace the Fighting Hawks nickname.

Tough to do when you have enablers like the Ralph, hockey coaching staff, and Faison the past 2 and half years.

Posing as what?

You're so butthurt over something so infinitesimal, you let it blind a fantastic message.

I wondering the same thing. The hockey hasn't embraced the new logo, so what? We can't make them promote it or embrace it. 

The players on the UND hockey team are solid people. Great bunch of guys.

How the hell can Brian Faison be blamed for this?

On top of all that they're Sioux hockey players, too.

I know it’s hard when you can’t make people give in and like certain things.

F'waks lovers - WAHHHH people don't love the new nickname, and the hockey teams aren't wearing it, they must all hate UND sports and UND, traitors TRAITORS!!!!!

Siouxforver people - Those stupid F'wacks people at just a bunch of libtard safe space loving idiots, once we get rid of them we can sue the NCAA and bring back the Nickname.

The majority of fans- I don't care, its a crappy name and crappy logo but I still back my team, just don't expect me to shell out $150 for a jersey I don't like.

^^^THIS

But for the Hawks lovers, it seems to be all or nothing. If you don't fully jump on board with the logo, you aren't a "true" UND fan. Just nonsense.

You're the one who said it, not me. You're certainly acting little by getting upset at that message by the team.

This nickname argument is what is infinitesimal and it completely clouded your view on a really cool gesture by the team.

I mean if you don't think the continued hanging on to the Fighting Sioux nickname has gotten a little old and over the top, then I'm not sure what to tell you. The chants at hockey games and booing of the new nickname, responses to anything mentioning Fighting Hawks on social media by UND and non-UND accounts, continued comments by student-athletes about being Fighting Sioux when they were in junior high or younger the last time UND actually was known as the Fighting Sioux, etc. I mean, people get it, there's a large group don't like the new name or logo and that's fine. But yelling or proclaiming "Sioux Forever" every chance you get while making negative comments about the current nickname and logo isn't going to bring back the name or change anything, it just shows that they haven't grasped the reality of the situation yet.

I personally don't care if people haven't moved on, but I don't need to hear about it every time the new nickname and logo is mentioned. I'd much rather spend time discussing the actual teams, the last decade plus of hearing about the nickname has been more than enough.

I feel the same way about the Hawks crowd who are telling me every time I wear a Sioux jersey that I am not supporting UND the right way. 

I'm not a Sioux Forever person. I get it. But like Archy said, I don't think I should be talked down to or looked poorly upon if I don't like the logo and don't want to buy a Hawks jersey. It's as simple as this.

It was correct the first time. I appreciate the attempt, however.

Let's just wrap this up, ok? Both "sides" have their knuckleheads that can't meet in the middle. It's the same frickin' "argument" every time.

I just think it was silly to pick that tribute to Humboldt as a pulpit to preach about the nickname.
