Happy to see comments being deleted. VDHF puts this blog together on his own time out of passion for the team, sport, the fans and the community. He doesn't deserve the abuse he has been taking from ignorant trolls with nothing better to do.
If you don't like how he runs things....leave.

There is a way to give feedback without being an asshole. It's ok to disagree with each other, but there should be no place for personal attacks or abuse here.

Thank you for your efforts VDHF. I hope a more positive, family friendly environment can be had here.

Marty said...

Well said Steve, I agree with your comments 100%. This blog is a gem and VDHF works very hard to create & maintain it. It is certainly not too much to ask for courtesy & civility from all of us. Personally I enjoy the comments, especially how others are viewing the games. We will not always agree but that is part of the fun, respectful debate. Go Vipers, Go.

Steve and Marty are right on. Its time that fans that really want to discuss the Vipers can without the constant whine of the ignorant. Our group have 5 season seats and really enjoy watching Jr A hockey. The Vipers have improved in the last couple of months and the home games we attend have been exciting to watch. Trolling the owners, his son, coaches, players etc does nothing to support the players. No person with experiance in any sport wants fans or team mates that constantly drag the organization down. Thing are different with the new ownership. We cant keep moaning the fact that its not Ferner running the show or Larry Black delivering the players. Enjoy the game for what it is and watch the boys work towards university scholarships. Diehard you do a great service to the real fans and we thak you for the best blog in the BCHL. Im pretty sure many teams will not want to face this very large and improving Viper team in a 7 game series....GO VIPERS
