You likely read my much-acclaimed Teemu Selanne gameday post from Monday, but if you haven't now might be the right time to catchup.
Go ahead, I'll wait.
Welcome back. Now, despite the praise and accolades that the above well-written, fact-based investigative journalism received, some Winnipeg Jets fans took issue with it. Now look, I'm a reasonable man, so I like to give equal-time to differing opinions. I'm not not one to close my ears to opposing viewpoints.
So in interest of fairness, here are some of the responses that my post received from the best and brightest among the Jets' fanbase...
Read a hack article from a fake hockey blogger: http://t.co/AejtlkQIio @JerMeansWell is a shit blogger who's best days never existed— DaaaaaaaMone (@damone1799) April 20, 2015
It's funny because if it was Adrian Dater trolling Ducks fans, people would be in a massive uproar about how media should conduct itself..— Art Middleton (@GameTimeArt) April 20, 2015
@damone1799 Selanne loves Winnipeg. @JerMeansWell lives in some delusional butthurt California dreamworld. There's little logic in her blog.— Jets Monkey (@SarcasmWinnipeg) April 20, 2015
@JerMeansWell @BattleofCali Shit article from a fake blogger writing about a hockey team named after Disney Movie. Hope u get hit by a bus— DaaaaaaaMone (@damone1799) April 20, 2015
@BattleofCali even if there are some truths to some of the comments in this article, it think the basis of it is distasteful and moronic— Paul Poirier (@PaulPoirier3) April 20, 2015
@BattleofCali have you ever been to the actual community i have been to anaheim and the area nice— Paul Poirier (@PaulPoirier3) April 20, 2015
@WpgHockTalk i commented than blocked the guy because his only comment was winnipeg is a toilet and i asked him if he had ever been there?— Paul Poirier (@PaulPoirier3) April 20, 2015
If you like reading dog shit here you go. Teemu Selanne Doesn't Care About Winnipeg http://t.co/l0trbWOtXl via @BattleofCali— Sergei Enigmatov (@Pitty_Da_Fool) April 20, 2015
@GarretHohl @BattleofCali I thought ppl who wrote humourous articles are supposed to be funny. Lame attempt at potshots that fails miserably— Duane Woods (@Out_ofthe_Woods) April 20, 2015
@Pitty_Da_Fool @BattleofCali Ha Ha HAA!! What a dumb c*nt. #GoJetsGo— GivRJetsGivR (@DaveyDov) April 20, 2015

@HappyCaraT @BattleofCali if we're listing things that are better than their writing, i'll have to put on a pot of coffee *snap*— Bob Spencer (@BobaFenwick) April 20, 2015
@WpgHockTalk @Jason6440 @BattleofCali I've lived n SoCal. This guy is nobody. It doesn't change the fact that A Storm is Coming. #GoJetsGo— Cap'n (@AwSSum) April 20, 2015
You don’t have to write shit. Mind you, you already do…
LIttle Jer: (poutpout) He can’t be your friend because he’s my friend! He likes me, so he can’t like you! (poutwhine) They’re just his stupid old city, he likes us better. He never even liked you at all. When he talks nice about you, he’s just making it up. He only loves us.
Grown Up: Now, now, Little Jer, you do know that people can like two things at once without diminishing either one, right?
Little Jer: No! It’s not fair! Teemu’s mine! Winnipeg can’t share him! They suck. My back yard is better than their back yard.
Grown Up: Little Jer, maybe you’ll understand a bit better when you’ve grown up. Now run along to one of your sold out Ducks games…oh, sorry. A sold out game is when all of the tickets are sold for a game, and there are no empty seats left…like in Winnipeg. Maybe you’ll find out what that’s like some day. We can all dream.
Well, okay folks! You've certainly convinced me that you are a fanbase full of rational, secure people! Thanks for changing everyone's mind about you here at Battle of California.
Ducks @ Jets
Ducks lead series 3-0
