Many people have been on both forums for years, but with the recent events of new ownership on HF and many of their forums features and past being gutted, I wanted to extend to ANYONE who use to mainly go there a welcome here.

Our hobby has been declining for years due the way the game of hockey is played now, but we at least have our past. Many of us spent the better part of two decades with this odd hobby into hockey fights and I don't want to to see the history vanish in part due to the other set of forums being destroyed. You are welcome here. Any and all past rivalries between the groups is null and void. We need to preserve our hobby and you are all welcome to help do that here and help improve our forums. Thank you.

Lol I may have way more posts over there, but FC is still my original home, since I joined here first. I said i would laugh the day FC outlives hockeyfights, considering the latter gets more mainstream exposure in news articles and quips from team commentators.

When I first signed on to these hockey fight boards back in 2008, I settled in over at hockeyfights.com. Even though I gave both sites a whirl, I just found myself a little more comfortable over there. Every so often I might post something here but I usually just did my thing there. Now we've come to a crossroads... my loyalty has always been to this hobby - not any particular site or forum. I've always enjoyed writing about fights and I will continue to do so wherever I may roam.

Cotton - I remember you mostly at hf but you left after my first few years or so. Welcome back to the hobby. Thanks for reaching out to the other side. This hobby still has a pulse and I'm glad to see there's still some fight left in people to keep this going. I still trade and post and put together shit for the fight fans. I love this shit. It's just a shame what's been going on over at hf. Seems like a bad dream really.

You made some fine comments over there, cotton and I appreciate you taking the time to reach out to us. It's good to know there's still some semblance of 'community' left in this hobby.

I am truly upset over the way people over at HF were treated during this transfer of new ownership. They bought it as a business venture for clicks and ad revenue (nothing at all wrong with that part of it) but failed to understand that attached to it was an online community of over 20 years. From a group of people who have had their hobby pretty much ripped from them by the last decade of this garbage hockey. To the extremes of apathy that set in. Only to have their community, the only thing they had left, totally compromised and for the new owner to show utter disdain for them.

I don't know if trying will help, but I am motivated to do the right thing to save the history of our hobby. To at least fight to keep this weird sub-culture of hockey fans around so at least we can keep our memories alive.

What exactly did they do on that site? I haven't really been on that site in years. I can't even remember if I had an account there.
Anyone who ever posted another poster's quote as their signature is a giant douchebag.

Their older posts, post counts, join dates, PMs, and many of the features they had are all gone. It is stripped down and looks like trash.

Vodka did a hell of a lot of good over there. Congrats to him. We have and have here the base of knowledge that always was the mecca for old school hockey fight fans.

That man dedicated his life to this hobby and did a wonderful job. What is upsetting is the people who bought it don't seem to respect the hobby or the people that make it a hobby at all.

It's an odd thing to say. It's almost like if someone who is a NASCAR fan asks someone else if they like it and they say they kinda do but really only watch for the crashes.

In the same way Friedrich Nietzsche declared that we killed God, I will say that we have killed machoism and manliness. Hockey fights are slowly going the way of disco.

As for vodka, I remember him contacting myself to write boxing for him, but sports writing wasn’t in my heart and I quit. Vodka was an honorable, and fair man and he worked hard. I’m glad he got something in return for all that hard work.

I hope some day HF.com takes me back on their site, bec i have improved as a human. My opinion.
HF.com = great site, like this one.
HF.com has a good fightning data-info, but best fightning data-info is showed on the dyg.site.
