New York Islanders Rivalry with Rangers Explained
That Fan Base Though
It’s undeniable that the Rangers have a larger fan base. That doesn’t make them any better, in fact, it kinda makes them worse. There’s something to be said about the safety of numbers.
It impunity one might feel when shooting out absolute nonsense is understandable when you consider that there’s a throng of like-minded individuals at your side. But again. That doesn’t make them right, or even likable. Like at all.
I hate how the Rangers will always have the media coverage. The Islanders have the best player in New York, but he doesn’t get his due because he wears a blue and orange sweater.
The arrogance that the Rangers fans have is a major reason why I hate this team. They say the most wildly inaccurate things while they talk trash. And it annoys me to no end. Things that a five-year-old can disprove. The fact that Rangers fans always thinks they’re top dogs annoy me to the point where I’d put my isles colored gloves on and do as Brian Trottier once did.
