Caps fans don't care to vote AO to all star b.s.
I am a Washington Capitals fan and have been since 1974 although the seriousness of my fandom has gone up and down over the years. Caps fans haven't had much to root for in many years.
My Caps fandom went into overdrive the year that the Caps acquired Alexander Ovechkin, the greatest hockey player in the NHL last year and one that I feel privileged to watch night after night. There has never been a generational athlete like him in Washington sports.
I refused to vote in that all star voting charade because:
- The Habs fan were using computer generated scripts to make sure their players got voted in as starters for the 100th anniversary of their hockey club. The NHL supposedly fixed this (yeah right) by discounting those votes.
- And many other hockey fans sat at their computers voting time and time again for their favorite players. I have better things to do than sit at my computer all day than voting in this joke of an all star game.
Here's my advice to those in charge at the NHL - change the process so it has some semblance of credibility if you want a real All Star game.
Let's go Caps!
