Most guys that hate the sport of Hockey cannot even skate.

Ego?

Jealous of the Kids that can?

I'm only throwing that out there as I have no idea what drives people to hate another sport so much. 9 times outta 10 its just insecurity, dudes calling down other guys for doing or watching something they enjoy to make themselves feel big.

It's really silly.

Considering Hockey and BAsketball, aside form the obvious differences, are exactly the same sport I am really dumfounded as to how an............ oh hold on, I get it now, 80% of you Jackals don't even get the game of basketball, how the hell can I expect you to see the similarities with Hockey!!!!

you're right SJ.

While I'm not a hockey fan, it's pretty obvious to see that once a defender grabs possession of the puck in the defensive zone or from a rebound or whatever, it's pretty much like running an outlet pass in basketball off a rebound.

The similarities are there.

Not my cup of tea.

The one thing I really do like about hockey though are the personalities of the players. No whining. All culpable for their mistakes. No silly injuries and everyone has the eye on the prize.

I don't mind hockey, but the Canadian sports channels except for the score overanalyze everything, and they rarely cover the NFL off season like ESPN does

Nice, if someone doesn't like hockey in this country they're called jealous or stupid. As for not knowing how to skate.....bullshit, at least in my case. I played hockey for 12 years growing up and loved the sport until recently. People i know that have been turned off by hockey that used to like it, and the few i know that never liked it to begin with, all have varying reasons why. The narrow mindedness in this country when it comes to Hockey and the sports landscape in general is sad.

No Jeff, you get called all that stuff for ignorantly hopping on this kids thread and saying the sport he likes sucks.

It's that simple really. No real need to do it other than some silly need to be a jackass to get a reaction. I truly could care less about people just not liking a sport, hell, I detest football. You don't see me calling out people who love it, or calling it out and "sucking" in general.

Thats all im saying man. Just that.

skating, by itself.... is incredible.... it's just such an awesome sensation.... as close to flying as i think i'll ever get. each time i step on the ice i feel that same sense of wonder.

add a stick and a puck and you have pretty much the perfect game.

i can see why people get tired of the seemingly neverending jibber-jabber in the media about professional hockey.... but don't hate on the game... the game of hockey is fantastic.

Too much over saturation of hockey in the media, it just gets boring after sometime.

I like the olympics hockey games, they are definitely worthy of watching and lot of emotion and the fan base is just nuts

Other than that, the regular NHL is just boring and i snooze on it most of the time. Unless its like the cup finals or something. I think it is partly also due to the fact that MLSE does not just care to put a winning team on the ice and it blows my mind they still get such attendance. I dont want to support an ownership that cannot put a winning team on the ice

Ah, hockey... waiting forever for someone to hit a tiny puck into a huge fucking net

Alright I'm being facetious. I don't hate hockey. I just prefer basketball so its a matter of personal choice and I believe to each his own. The only thing I hate and I think someone mentioned it is the oversaturation of hockey in the media here but I guess that's the way it is if you live in Canada. When I was travelling abroad I used to have to sit through tons of soccer and cricket just to hear a snippet of basketball news.
