Why they might be annoying:

    They have a hated rivalry going with Calgary Flames fans.
    They were forced to put up with Peter Pocklington as their team's owner.
    Their arena has gone through numerous name changes since eliminating the 'Northlands Coliseum' moniker.
    They were spoiled by the Oilers winning five Stanley Cups in their first twelve NHL seasons.
    They rioted on Whyte Avenue after the Oilers beat Anaheim to advance to the Stanley Cup finals (2006).

Why they might not be annoying:

    When the team was on the verge of being sold to an American owner, the fans formed an ownership group and made a successful 11th hour bid on the team.
    They braved freezing cold temperatures at Commonwealth Stadium to attend the Heritage Classic game against the Montreal Canadiens.
    They stuck through the lean years when ownership was forced to give up their superstars due to financial difficulties.
    They cheered for Wayne Gretzky during his formative years as an NHL superstar.
