    Honestly we should ask why HF Oil still exists. Nearly everything we've hoped for and discussed for the last ten years has been for virtually nothing. I was once a hard core Oiler fan, but there's hardly any people that could get their hopes up for such a laughable organization.

    No one is forcing you to be an Oiler fan.

    If anyone is going to jump ship than pick a team that doesn't play the Oilers much. Spending a night with both your new squeeze and your ex will make you feel funny inside.

    Washington and Tampa are neutral and far enough teams. Should be cup contenders to boot.

    I like the Seattle team idea.. too bad they would be in Pacific.

    Why hang around here if you’re done ? Why suffer all that extra pain of explaining the practical lifetime of indignity you’ve lived with ? TSN has a page for each of the other teams. Choose wisely and peace out.

    The Cardiff Devils is the team this board should get behind. They actually win games and their fans are more passionate then many nhl fan bases

    they are 25-5-4 so far this year

    I was born in Edmonton and live here so naturally I cheer for all things to do with Edmonton. I know I have been harsh critic of the team, but liking any other team seems like blasphemy. Well once the Oilers are eliminated, then I may cheer for another Canadian team that is not Calgary or Toronto. Most neutral fans cheer for the underdog.

    Gross. That should be the last option.

    Ya. As a Sounders fan, I’m definitely going to be cheering for Seattle when they come in. I’m just hoping that our team won’t continue to be pathetic enough that I’ll be tempted to fully switch...

    And their leading scorer is a former Oiler oddly enough... it might be kind of fun to just say to hell with it and, as a board, start watching a different league entirely :laugh:

    Everyone please stay Oilers fans, but I wouldn't mind having more Oilers-Caps fans with me :)

    It's incredibly frustrating, I feel you. I still support this team though, although I am protesting by not buying tickets nor anything that goes back into the team monetarily. Even if I tried cheering for another team I would find myself drawn back in checking the Oilers scores and watching their highlights.

    I'm kind of in the same boat as OP. It's really hard to get into the games now if I even end up watching them. I've watched more Calgary or Toronto games because I find them to be better hockey, more entertaining. I'm not jumping fan bases but on a purely entertainment level aside from McDavid, I dont really enjoy watching Edmonton like I used to.

    Everything goes in cycles, I hear the game is cyclical. So are ice ages, and we are due for one of dem too.

    LOL...surely you jest? Seriously, not sure.

    Things could NEVER get so bad around these parts to justify anything but disdain for all things Flames.

    ABC. Simple as that. Embrace the hatred!! Lol

    Tampa.

    I might start cheering for them and attending games as they aren’t too far from me. Say no to a Flames or any team that employs a d-bag like Matty T.
