Are we being trolled?

Recommended Posts

I came across the following tweet addressing Jess Myer's preview of our hockey team for The Athletic.

I didn't pick up on it when I initially casually read through the preview.  However, as I reread it following the above tweet, "Hawks" is mentioned repeatedly, though Myers also uses "North Dakota".  Is this a subtle troll or is this an overly sensitive tweet from someone who needs to accept the nickname and move on?

The team's nickname is the Fighting Hawks.  Of course sports journalists are going to use the nickname.

This.  

We are the Fighting Hawks no matter how much Fans like or don't like it.  Can't change the Facts.

When reading the article, it does seem he went out of his way to never say "UND."

It flows easier with Hawks than UND.

If we're being trolled, maybe its by the thread starter.

Nah, we have some ridiculous fans...

Was Myers trolling? Probably. Should anyone care? No.

I just read this article and literally noticed nothing weird. Except for when it said Cam Johnson was a freshman when we won the title, which was incorrect.
