'''South Side:''' Once the wealthiest section of Chicago, its fortunes took a dramatic turn for the worse in the wake of the Great Depression. It also contained the city's largest black enclave—Bronzeville. Any black resident who tried to settle outside of its borders was not looked upon very kindly (to put it mildly). When the U.S. Supreme Court made housing restrictions illegal and blacks spread out beyond the overcrowded Bronzeville, white residents panicked. There were some attempts to stop the process, but ultimately, the older residents couldn't fight demographics. Most chose White Flight. Red-Lining and blockbusting made things worse for the black residents that replaced them.

*** A good analogy for people who follow UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball is the Tartan Army (the fans of the [[BritishFootyTeams Scottish national team]]): Scotland have been hopeless for several decades, but its fans have been noted for being very warm, if ridiculously devoted and absurdly drunk (or is it the other way 'round?).

** The Wolves won two championships in their first 6 seasons which led to a large fan following as their success coincided with the Blackhawks' DorkAge. After the IHL folded,the team joined the AHL, the top level of the NHL farm system where they won two more championships as affiliates of the Atlanta Thrashers. Their popularity dwindled as the perpetually-bad Thrashers began poaching their good players and then trading them away. Their decline continued with the resurgence of the Hawks. Plenty of fans are still there, but it's hard to fill a stadium three times the size of the average for the AHL, especially with a thriving NHL team in town. In 2011, with the Thrashers being bought and moved to Winnipeg, the Wolves aligned with the Hawks' ArchEnemy Vancouver Canucks, alienating some fans and just making others feel awkward. The Canucks bought the Peoria Rivermen at the end of the 2012-2013 season, leaving the Wolves to affiliate with the St. Louis Blues,[[note]]The Blues were the previous owners of the Peoria Rivermen bought by the Canucks, thus in need of a new AHL affiliate[[/note]] another of the Hawks' notable rivals. The consensus among fans with regard to the deal has been "[[LesserOfTwoEvils well at least it's not Vancouver]]".

In the 2017-2018 season the Wolves will become the affiliate team of the Las Vegas Golden Knights, with the Blues becoming an associate affiliate allowing both teams to utilize the team's roster for one year, after which the Blues will find another AHL team.

* ''Mount Greenwood'': A predominantly Irish-Catholic neighborhood (in fact the fourth most Irish neighborhood in the country), it's populated almost entirely by Chicago firefighters and police officers, since it's the farthest from the center of the city a public worker can live without losing his/her job. It has a very strong church presence, and contains several private Catholic schools, including Mother Mcauley, the nation's largest all-girls high school (and its sister school Brother Rice, one of the largest all-boys schools). It's also the only one of Chicago's 77 community areas which voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
