In a world of social media, acceptance has become a drug that millions upon millions of users feed off of daily. Finding their fix by telling others how they feel behind the protection of a computer screen or cell phone. (AKA Keyboard warriors.) The sport of hockey is no different, unfortunately. As for the Dallas Stars, it’s even more unfortunate.
Recent research has shown that the Stars are the second most disliked team in North America. sports. (According to an analysis compiled by Linkfluence.)
Yeah, you read that right. Out of every single sports franchise in North America, the Dallas Stars are the second most disliked sports team. They are THE most disliked NHL franchise. What the hell did we do to piss everyone off?
Is it the Mooterus? Can’t be. That sweet angel does one thing and one thing only, and that’s bring joy to the masses. Just accept the it, you know it to be true. It also hasn’t been around in forever. That eliminates that theory. What else could it be?
Not to mention, in another survey by @JFreshHockey, the Stars logo is as ranked almost dead last in all NHL logos. Barely scraping by the Ducks logo. Which is absolutely terrible. It’s been downhill for them since the day they rid themselves of the classic duck mask logo. But, the Stars logo is not lower than the Panthers basic meow meow logo or even that atrocious Columbus Bleu Jackets logo. (It looks like something I could do in Microsoft Paint at 11 years of age.)
Regardless, it seems as if the Stars are the villains of the NHL. Not exactly what I expected but here we are. Feels like we are being wrapped in with the football team in Arlington. (Yeah I said it. The Dallas Cowboys don’t even play in Dallas.) It’s a bad wrap. Come to a game. Chat with me. We aren’t all that bad.
