Get over it already - lol
Is it really that important. I don''t think anyone really cares other than a team from here won
Do you get it? Get It?It is you that doesn't get it. As already pointed out, this analogy of a team winning the Stanley Cup with players not from their city is a false one. If the Toronto Maple Leafs were to win the Stanley Cup it would be with the team that they had during the season. If Toronto instead had played as a team all season and then on opening night of the playoffs they worked out a deal with another team to combine their players, they couldn't then claim a victory for Toronto alone. This is the correct analogy. This should be simple for anyone to understand. I'm not complaining about the players not being from Clarenville. Only a handful of Cataracts are from GFW. Same with most teams. No problem there. I'm also not complaining that they teamed up wit the Cebbes players to win the championship. Good on 'em. I cheered for them as I watched the game. My complaint is that Clarenville combined with another team to win the Allan Cup and now fans are online trying to claim that victory for Clarenville alone. That's not right or fair. Right? Get it?
When people are unable to understand something that is being explained to them a common response is to laugh...it covers up ignorance.
As for getting over it.....you're the one who insisted on replying to my comment. Must have been important for you. Now you've replied twice. Guess you don't get it. Anybody who simply says we should all be happy is badly missing my point. I'm very happy a team from here (NL) won. Just that some Clarenville fans don't want the rest of the province to share the pride. They want to claim it all for themselves. You and others don't seem happy that they've been called out for doing so.
