Fake Fan:
Someone who follows the Canucks only because they are doing well and winning. Shows little to no knowledge about the team or the sport in general. Buys the team's jersey in the midst of the Stanley Cup Playoffs because it is the cool thing to do. Adamantly flaunts their love for the team, and only shows interest when it is a noticeable time to do so.

e.g. Our lovely premier Christy Clark, the #1 fake fan in the province.

No, not like half of the people on my grad council/whatever the hell it was called last year...all rich kids whose parents bought them the 40th anniversary Kesler/Henrik jerseys just for the 2011 playoffs, and couldn't tell you who Naslund or Linden was.

"Go...uhh...GO US GO WOOO!"

They're as bad as bandwagoners.

Been a fan since I was 8 years old, had a Tanti jersey. The Mark Messier / Keenan years were f'ing painful.

It is UNBELEIVABLE how many bandwagon fans there are in Vancouver. The real fans cheer for the Canucks the whole year, every year. Bandwagoners just pretend to cheer cause it is the playoffs. Then when we lose 8-1 and 4-0 in games three and four in the SCF they pretend like they never were cheering for the Canucks in the first place... :picard:

A bandwagoner habitually starts cheering for the team when they're doing good and thinks they actually know stuff. Gets bitter when the team doesn't do well, and stops cheering (at least until the team's good again). A shadow of a fan really; not dedicated, ignorant.

A fake fan just pretends to cheer for them when they're doing good to elevate their social esteem or something in the community. Has no actual emotion regarding the team, just pretends to. Not a fan in any sense of the word.

Basically, a bandwagoner will give support when the team does well, flip out when they lose and abandon all support. When the team's winning, the fan will be like "Yeah, go Canucks! Now vote for me/buy my product/consider me popular!" and once they lose, that person will lose all memory that the team existed, "What? Who lost? Oh...sure, darn!"

That's how I see it anyhow.

To be fair a cup run does attract a lot of fans. There could very well be "true" fans that have only been cheering for the team since last May. Everyone has a point where they become a fan.

What are you if you are a fan of no particular team, but instead are primarily interested in the management/business side of hockey? I mean I have managers/individual players I enjoy watching but generally have no emotional connection to the "team".

Im the biggest Canuck fan/homer my friends,coworkers and family know. Im a diehard fan, but I take players sides all the time, and defend the team whenever.I hate other teams and other fans, and treat rival fans like foreigners. The end.

I hate people who criticize players on our team and they dont even follow the sport
I rather lose with the Canucks, than win with any other team

This is OUR year

GO CANUCKS GOOOOOO!!!!!!!

My sister, being forced to watch the game against Anaheim because it was my last day before going back to uni:
"I F**KING HATE LUONGO"

"You don't even watch the Canucks, you just pretended to last spring. You don't understand hockey, maybe learn a little and analyze the game before you immediately blame Lu?"

"...MOM, BEN'S A STONER SHUN HIM!!!"

Yep...I have to deal with them in my family.

Just normal fake fans are fine by me. Bandwagoners are also fine for me.
The problem I have is with these moron fans who shows no respect for the other teams and other team's players and make us all look like idiots, including those rioters.

Every time I go read an article on TSN.ca, I see some real dumb comments from the Canucks fan about how much Oilers suck and Flames suck and whatever... those people are way more annoying than the fake fans. Well, Oilers have 5 more cups than us and Flames have one too...

We have/had such classy players like Naslund, Linden, Sedins, and so on as our role models. They always show respect for the other teams and their players but for some reason, the majority of the fans do not take after them... I don't know why.

I know what you mean. A friend that I watch games with... every goal that Luongo allows, he's like,

"F*ck'ing Luongo, sucks! he's effing terrible!!!"

I felt like saying shut the eff up but didn't... it was real annoying.

Does she remind anyone else of Yeardley Smith?

I've been a fan since LG73(?) released the "King Richard" 45 I think it had Na na na na hey hey hey goodbye as the flip side.

I also remember my aunt confiscated our white towels after we wrecked her living room whipping them around.
pretty sure I'm an 'authentic' fan
I put the F U in Fun!

Yes I'm a fake fan. Lol Why would you even bother? You're asking on a Canucks forum and I doubt a "fake fan" would be anywhere near these boards.
