How many active users do you think there are on the CDC message boards? That's a number I would love to know. It is clear to me that on every thread someone has to post "Why are Canucks fans always like this..." or "Canucks fans are the only team in the league to do -blank-" or anything else along the lines of posters disagreeing about the goaltending situation, the Sedins, Mason Raymond, Keith Ballard's contract, and just about every other thing thats ever worn a Johnny Canuck. I thought to myself, are Canucks fans really the only fans in the league that disagree with each other? Does every other fan base (for the most part) stick together and stand behind their team no matter what? I did some very brief research. For the record, I would never ever join another team's message board and troll, is there anything worse than that?

A few random threads from the Toronto Maple Leafs message boards first page (so, recent, not like I had to dig forever):

- "The Fire Carlyle Bandwagon" REALLY?!
- "Next Year? haha"
- "Today - We are ONLY 2 pts out of a TOP 5 PICK! Will Burke do the right thing?"
- "Can Kessel ever be that guy?"

How about the Calgary Flames message boards?

- "No Trades - New Coach?"
- "Don't Waste the Season"

Even the Edmonton Oilers...

- "Is Renney on the way out?"

Just so everyone is aware, every single team has message boards, except the Coyotes (its just a message thread), where there is hate and anger towards just about every member of the team and staff. My point is that there are thousands of Canucks fans on CDC, if you complain about what "Canucks fans are like" then you have completely missed the point of the message boards. Can you imagine what the boards would be like if everyone loved Lou? If Keith Ballard made $1.5 million?

We all love this team for various reasons, but our end goal is the exact same.

I'm not trolling, but I'm failing to see the point of this thread. You can never please anyone, especially in mad hockey markets; so there will always be bickering, whining and complaining.

If this came across as a "why can't everyone love each other" thread that was definitely not my intention. All I meant was that the people who hate on Canucks fans because they argue are wrong. On the message boards, make war not peace. In life, do whatever you want.

This is not about the team.. but I want to say many Canucks fans on CDC love to make sarcastic smartass comments. Just look at this recently made thread
"Would The Team Benefit From Spreading The Sedin Wealth?"


Someone states that this idea has already been proposed many times. Ok that's fine. Then there's a whole page of people mobbing the OP with sarcastic disrespectful smartass comments about how they're thankful he's not the coach and other crap like this...

"Insert response that makes it seem like I care when topic is already dead horse."

There are some Canucks fans who don't know how to comment without making smartass disrespectful sarcastic comments.

It's hard to carry on any logical discussion without a mob forming attacking the OP or another poster.

I have always been one to "consider the source" .. so if folks who spout off idiotically most of the time are dismissing or attacking you, I would laugh and move on .. I focus on those here who make rational, if emotional, comments, while maintaining perspective and interjecting at least a "sense" of humor .. all else are just fodder in the CDC miasma .. <_<

OP, if you really want to know, there's a handy link up above the titel of your thread that says 'Members' and it actually tells you there are 3859 pages of members, at 20 members a page. You do the math.

Other than that, we've heard it all before, and this is hardly new and exciting stuff at how a fair number of the populace isn't really all that hockey savvy.

Not when their team is losing.

Have only read a few other message boards, and only one compares to CDC when their team is losing....the Blackhawks board, in fact I think both boards have some of the same posters. ;)

I will admit, I have made many the smartass comment, but in the end, people are people and fan bases arent that different, except in size.

Well said. Thank you. Wasn't trying to get preachy, just thought I'd point it out to the haters.

OP, if you really want to know, there's a handy link up above the titel of your thread that says 'Members' and it actually tells you there are 3859 pages of members, at 20 members a page. You do the math.

Thanks man. Every one of us has come across some complete idiots on CDC or wherever else you post, but I was just more focused on the people that always go "Oh, Canucks fans, you'll never change" as if we all are the worst fans in the league.

3859 X 20 = 77 180 - however there may be less than 20 on the final page.

Every team has their share of armchair GM's that think they have the answers. The problem here to me is the number that actually look for things to whine about. Some writer said something bad about us. Some analyst criticised one of our players. CBC hates us, the NHL hates us, the refs hate us, eastern bias, stupid Americans, conspiracy theories....it goes on and on with great exageration. You'd think we were a hard done by bottom feeder as opposed to a contender. That's why so many hate Canuck fans.

For the most part I think people post that stuff cos they care and because when there's no game on, the Canucks are a big part of their lives and they like to discuss "all things Canuck, all the time" and I totally get that. I read these boards constantly when I'm not busy because I get so little hockey elsewhere (i.e. ZERO media coverage here in Australia). I only ever post when I have something to say (or possibly after a few drinks coupled with boredom)....but as you can tell, that's only happened 38 times in two and a bit years since joining. Some people just can't help themselves, they want to voice their opinions and they do love the sound of their own voices! I quite enjoy reading most peoples opinions and occassionally laugh at the idiots but it all stems from one thing....passion and love for the greatest hockey team ever. And I'm ok with that.
p.s. As for people hating Canucks fans, we're kidding ourselves if we actually think they care. They don't. They hate the team so they rag on the fans....I occassionally do the same......to Bruins & Hawks fans mostly but only to my immediate family. I tend to hate in confined spaces.
p.p.s. Despite all that, I actually giggled at your sig :)

It's just the result of a group of people who care very passionately about something.

But yes, I do agree that the snarky comments seem to be something CDC is quite well-known for. Other message boards don't have the number of snarky one-liner comments that seem to get repeated over and over and over here on CDC.

That's just the way it is.

The only flaw I see in your argument is there is really no need for the amount of bile written on here considering we are talking about a team filled with award winning stars, the winningest ever Canuck Coach, an award winning GM, a team that has got better every year, won the Western Conference and got to game 7 of the SC Final last year and only failed ultimately through horrendous injury problems.

Add to that the amount of outstanding work these players and this organisation do in and for the Community and I have only one statement to make regarding CDC and their constant whining, disrespect, and never-ending attacks on players, coaches and the very organisation itself.

I have a close friend who has been a life long Habs fan. He loves watching Canuck games. He says they're just an exciting team to watch. But, he says a lot of Nuck fans are bipolar paranoid schizophrenics with an inferiority complex added for good measure. I have several long time friends and family members who are fans of other teams but enjoy watching Canuck games. Like me they are hockey fans and enjoy watching good teams play. The common thread is they tend to try and avoid talking hockey with Canuck fans. They all cite reasons along the line of: can't stand the whining. It's funny, because over the past decade as the team has gotten better the whining has gotten worse. Something I've pointed out more than a few times.

Regarding the sig: I started referring to CDC as Crybaby Dot Com about two years ago.
