Is this board still open? They never had fans in the first place and now they don't have a team.

And 3/4 are probably non-thrasher related anyway.

I just thought about that the other day, how at least Nashville, amidst all the talk of low cash etc has a clear growing fan base, Atlanta and Phoenix seem to have no fans anywhere. The real question is if a franchise falls in the league and there were no fans around to notice,did it ever exist?

Love it...!
Just like saying: "If there is a tree falling in the forest and there is no one to ear it, will it make any sound crashing down?"

We have no team dimwit. I have chosen to root for the players I love instead of ditching the whole thing all together.

We are all hockey fans. Why this site has so many 'hockey fans' that bash other hockey fans for where they live; I will never understand.

I will most likely chose not to respond to your next post so don't bother.

Well, to an extent, it does. the biggest fanbases are likely to most represented on here. The smallest ones, the least represented. I feel for the lone Thrashers fan that posted here, and it's nice to see he'll be following other teams/players, but the reality is, the fact that it took any Thrashers fan three weeks to find this, is actually pretty much indicative of the support the team had.

If the Leafs/Habs/Sens/Oilers.... Hell, even the Sabres or Avalanche, left the city, the outcry on here would be over the top. It would probably take YEARS for posting to slow down, if it were one of the first four teams.

It's probably not too nice to be making fun of the few that actually DID support the team, and love hockey enough to post here. They weren't the problem. That there weren't more of them, is the problem.

PS - for the record, there were only 2 threads started by Thrash fans here.

The Islanders had the worst attendance in 2010-2011 and the Thrashers were 3rd worst, right after Phoenix.

The Thrashers failed, and they moved somewhere people will actually appreciate and support them, and I believe they will complete many pages on HB.

No, the posters on HB don't accurately represent the fanbase, but it gives a damn good idea!
Too bad for Atlanters! They had a nice team.

The Isles had nothing to do with this conversation but thanks for adding that in.

Several teams on here have pretty much non-existent fanbases on this site but have good attendance. Tampa, St Louis, Washington, etc. So the number of posters in this site for a certain fanbase mean absolutely nothing. Hell, St Louis was 7th in attendance last season and the last 3 blogs of theirs have 32 combined comments.

no, not really. again, the blues and caps are both in the top 10 in highest attendance and pretty much no posters on the site. that does not "give a damn good idea"
