I'll be honest here. I got into hockey because of the 2010-2011 playoff run (my first time ever watching a full run of hockey). I guess I was or still am (?) still considered as a bandwagoner/fake fan to all the true Canucks fans out there. After watching that amazing run, I knew I had to watching from the beginning (the regular season). I love it so far and I haven't missed any games (except when I'm working but usually I just watch the missed games from CanucksTV).

I'm still new with some hockey rules but I'm slowly growing accustomed to it. It's really nice to watch these games with my friends, family (I got them into it too) and even strangers in pubs. I want to witness and feel all that frustration and happiness you guys feel whenever Canucks win or lose. I don't know.. to me, it feels so surreal (sorry if I'm sounding like a drama queen but it's really hard to describe it). Looking back now, I wondered how I was able to live without hockey. Right now, I can't live without it :lol:


To all the true fans out there: Even though right now I am still considered as bandwagoner/fake fan to you guys, I am working my best to really become a "true fan". I love this team and I want to see them succeed just like you guys :) And even if they become Stanley cup winners in the future, I will not stop cheering for them and I will continue to watch every games afterward.

I hate people who criticize players on our team and they dont even follow the sport

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.

75 percent of the season ticket holders in the first 20 rows of the lower bowl are fake fans and are only there cause its "cool" to have season tickets

Lol no need to feel bad or let anybody run you down just because you started watching when the team was at its best. I became a fan in 94, just in time to see them make that classic playoff run. Havent been able to get enough of the team since then...even through some of those lean years.

It's because of those guys that jerseys sell out in the playoffs and not during the regular season.

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

Well I go out of my way and spend excessive amounts of time here on CDC just to discuss Canucks and hockey! I'm not your CDCer that posts fire ____________ threads or whining and complaining threads. I'm a pretty positive person and I like to give my opinion on things.

Most people (in real life) know me as "that chick who loves hockey". It was annoying to see all of my friends jump on the wagon when they used to tell me to shut up about hockey.. and now they're "supposedly" fans and talk about how hot a player is. Yes, numerous players on the Canucks roster are attractive, but it's annoying how they only mention their looks and not their skills. Hockey is an extraordinary thing. It's not that I just watch the games and go to sleep.. There's just so much more to it, and the passion I have for it is indescribable.

This is going to happen in any town with any sport.... the home team does well and everyone cheers... people just like to celebrate.
And lets be honest... how bad would any of our politicians look if they didn't cheer on our city's/country's team.
I'm one of the fans that follows the team closely all year every year... and I too dislike the whole bandwagon idea... but its inevitable. When you really think about it its not a bad thing that people want to support their home team. But yes, it annoys me when those people insist they know everything about the canucks... but it also annoys me when those people who call them selves true fans tear our players to pieces when they aren't performing. Just sayin... theres always going to be something that pisses you off..

I still haven't considered myself as a fan yet but I'm getting there I guess. I still yet need to get my first Canucks jersey (still debating who to get xD). I promised myself I have to see a home game this season.

Fan since I was born. I watched the 12 game losing streak in 09' and was depressed for 2 weeks when they lost, probably missed 10 games since the lockout, and i'm only 13.

Exactly what s/he said. Who says that all the fake fans are from surrey? Why can't they be from Vancouver as well? I've lived in surrey my whole life I am a fan, where ever I go I'm proud to show that and whenever i see/hear people say bad things about the nux i don't get shy away, I go to pick out an arguement against them or you know have a talk. I know many people who are diehard fans that are in surrey. In fact I probably know more true fans in Surreythan I do inVanfouver. Fake fans are everywhere not just in Surrey.

I like bandwagon fans for several reasons:


1.) Creates a more exciting atmosphere during the playoffs

2.) Makes me feel more knowledgeable because I know way more than them

3.) Gives me something to complain about when the team loses and I'm upset :lol: (also explains this thread since we just went 0-1-1)

I have considered him as one of my options. I'm debating between CoHo, Hamhuis, Higgins, Lapierre or Booth. It's so hard to choose because I like everyone equally :lol:

i honestly do not care whether people are true fans or not. i have followed the canucks since 2000..thanks to the WCE attracting me to the Canucks.

The fact that we devote our time to following our team...well thats our choice.

Others...either dont have enough time or care enough. The cup run showed us the power sport has in uniting a community, cheering for a local sports team. I couldn't care less if they are "hardcore/true" fans, but the fact they show spirit is good enough for me.

What benefits are there to being a true canucks fan? aside from knowing each players name, spending hours on this forum, and creating rather pointless threads as this...really...there are none. we still haven't seen a cup. being a casual fan is okay, and if you are going to criticize people for that i am sorry for you.

what attracted you to the canucks? for me it was the amazing play of pavel bure. before that i could have cared less. so perhaps the stanley cup run will "transform" some of these fake fans into canuck fans. i see no point to this.

so what if they only follow the team when they win...are they hurting you? or are you just mad that fake fans often have tickets to the games?
