Am I the only one tired of the infantile exaggeration and budgie brained, Playstation jockey lack of realistic opinion on these boards?

Half the time its like overhearing some junior school lunchtime conversations. What frightens me most though is the thought that many of these people are adults.

Theme of the day, is theme for every day. This player's a beast, that player should be in the press box and then you read on to find most of them give the impression they don't even watch the games. It's true many of them don't, it is obvious.

Many who do watch, don't really understand what they are watching, that is also obvious.

Type 1.
What I like to call the "Kings new clothes" syndrome.
These are the people who on the signing of a new player prefix their comments with "omg, omg xxxxxx is a beast!

It matters little that they have only seen a couple of youtube videos of the guy, suddenly he is better than most of the players who have been laying it on the line for months.
This is usually followed up 3 months later by these same posters slagging the player off and wondering what MG was thinking off trading for them in the first place.

Type 2
The "hater"
We all know them. They are the idiots, who wake up the day after a game and trudge zombie like to their Mum's laptop before breakfast, to compare their chosen victim to some "perfect player" and proceed to spout all manner of lies and exaggerations.

They are also the type who like to display their ignorance by equating a good performance to whether the player actually scored. Although it should be noted this criteria only applies to the victim so all the other players who failed to score have been deemed to play like beasts.

Type 3
The Playstation Jockey.
This is the guy who irrespective of the opponent predicts the 6-2, 5-0, 8-1 score on the GDT only to be seen writing in during the game, giving a rollicking to every player in the blue and green because they are only one up at the end of the first.

He also comes on the following day and rips the team, the coach, the GM and hot dog seller to shreds.

Actually what we don't realise about most of these types is, having the attention span of a gnat, they turn off the game half way through and drop into their fantasy world, switching on their Playstations and mentally making up a list of players to rip into the following day.

Magically they then proceed to predict the same scores for the next game, and so it goes on.

In my opinion NONE of these people are fans and yet they make up a decent proportion of the members on here and I would guess sadly, a decent proportion of Canucks fans in general.

I now often, find myself wondering when I see people post on here just how many were in the riots. I wonder this because it seems obvious to me that many of these posters can't cope with the realities of life and use Vancouver Canucks as some kind of crutch to shore up their dull lives and lack of self esteem.

They impose almost unrealistic goals on the players and the team. Goals which they would never dare impose on themselves and then feel somehow let down personally if things go wrong.

I like to think I am a fan of this team. I don't like ALL the players but when they put on the jersey I get behind them and will them to do well and prove me wrong. They almost always do.

I long for a more relaxed supportive attitude on here, where we accept that players are always giving 100% for us, that anyone can make a mistake, that they all want what we want desperately.

They are not there to make our everyday lives magical, they are there to entertain us and put some joy into our lives. They deserve our unrelenting support to a man.

PS For all those who find the length of this post beyond the limits of their attention span, save me the one line wise cracks and put downs.............

I beg to differ .. Bodee IS a fan, who gets tired of people who come across on here as having the intellect of a poop fly .. those who post on here as if they either know it all, or are "emo" beyond belief, are irritating to some folks .. it takes all kinds to make a world, just like there are all kinds of Canucks "fans".

What Bodee has spelled out is his "definition" of what a "true fan" is .. he has every right to his opinion, just as you have every right to yours .. when one person address' a topic with reason and logic, and the other person address' a topic like BunBun after one too many Zagnut bars, folks have a clear choice of which approach they prefer.

Rather than just tell Bodee he is "not a fan", why not share your great wisdom as to what you feel constitutes a "fan" .. oh, and grammar counts .. :)

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

I suppose it takes all kinds of fans...

If everyone flung poo ALL of the time, i doubt any professional would want to hang out. I dont think it would matter how nice the sleep program was if the player felt "hated at home"

However;

If everyone was content with the team 100% of the time, maybe the players would become stagnate? They wouldn't feel any pressure to do better, or be concerned about the their jobs. no matter what they do they're loved so why do anything at all?

What i think we need is to be realistic. Criticisms are only useful if they're constructive.

There is a huge difference between "So-and-So SUCKS TRADE HIM"

and

"So-and-so would fit in with their line better if they did this or that"

Yes, what a wonderful world it would be if we all thought the same' all had the same background; same expectations; same level of knowledge; shared the same opinions; expressed ourselves in the same manner.

These forums would be riveting reading to say the least.

OP must be a liberal...if you don't like something, you try to eliminate it instead of simply ignoring it or arguing against it.

THere is no homogenous fan. Get over it or don't come to the forum!!

Welcome to CDC, I would invite you to check out some other well known forums *cough* Hockeyforums *cough* if you want to avoid (for the most part) what you're posting about. Otherwise, not much you can do other than sucking it up.

Some people don't get me, I'm sorry.

I have not been a fan of the Canucks for long. However since I was able to watch NHL over here I am just so happy and enthusiastic to be a fan of this team in these times.

I know it's not the done thing to say it but in a way I will not be devastated if we don't win the SC because I just enjoy watching this team so much and enjoy ANY success they have.

Obviously I am hoping like mad we have a good run and win the Cup but for me, I'm just delighted that we are in it and can't wait for the playoffs to start.

I'm sorry, I don't see any of our players as failures. I enjoy what AV is doing with this team and I'm confident in our GM, Mike Gillis because he desperately wants to give this Club success. I

I DO watch the games, often but not always I set my alarm to go off at 2:30 am and crank up my laptop. It does me no favours for the rest of the day but if the team has won I don't mind. If they have lost, I still don't mind (I just feel more tired ;-) because they put in the effort and nobody in this league gets a free ride. I understand that.

I get annoyed when I see our players attacked, mostly by people who don't understand the game. I can't understand those who imply that they want certain players to have a bad game, just to get them out the team.

This is a road trip we are all on and we should be together, behind whoever wears the jersey. We should be excited, optimistic, enthusiastic for the roller coaster ride ahead.............not panning members of the team just because we would not have picked them or because their form may have dipped recently. We need to trust the coach to do what's best/right and not necessarily what we think is best/right.

I don't think I'm arrogant for asking fans to be more supportive, especially at this time. If you see that as an indication of superiority then ok I'm superior to you, perhaps.

You sir, are one sick puppy. "Knock them down" as much as you want...........I'm beginning to think the more I read your posts that you may be heavily featured in my lead post. If that is the case you may already be beyond help. However displaying it on here won't make life any better for you I'm afraid.

Did you even read your own original post?

You label certain types of posters (i.e "idiots") and then describe those you don't like or agree with as not true fans. I wonder why that is seen as arrogant.

Question: in your perfect "Real Canucks Fan Forum", who decides who gets to post? Who decides what is an appropriate comment? what is intelligent? what is not a "true fan"....you?

If you don't like what you read here, argue your point or ignore the poster. That's what a forum is.

This is the guy who irrespective of the opponent predicts the 6-2, 5-0, 8-1 score on the GDT only to be seen writing in during the game, giving a rollicking to every player in the blue and green because they are only one up at the end of the first.

He also comes on the following day and rips the team, the coach, the GM and hot dog seller to shreds.

Actually what we don't realise about most of these types is, having the attention span of a gnat, they turn off the game half way through and drop into their fantasy world, switching on their Playstations and mentally making up a list of players to rip into the following day.

Magically they then proceed to predict the same scores for the next game, and so it goes on.

In my opinion NONE of these people are fans and yet they make up a decent proportion of the members on here and I would guess sadly, a decent proportion of Canucks fans in general.

I now often, find myself wondering when I see people post on here just how many were in the riots. I wonder this because it seems obvious to me that many of these posters can't cope with the realities of life and use Vancouver Canucks as some kind of crutch to shore up their dull lives and lack of self esteem.

They impose almost unrealistic goals on the players and the team. Goals which they would never dare impose on themselves and then feel somehow let down personally if things go wrong.

I like to think I am a fan of this team. I don't like ALL the players but when they put on the jersey I get behind them and will them to do well and prove me wrong. They almost always do.

I long for a more relaxed supportive attitude on here, where we accept that players are always giving 100% for us, that anyone can make a mistake, that they all want what we want desperately.

They are not there to make our everyday lives magical, they are there to entertain us and put some joy into our lives. They deserve our unrelenting support to a man.

PS For all those who find the length of this post beyond the limits of their attention span, save me the one line wise cracks and put downs.............


i think you pretty much nailed all the categories. lol i had a good chuckle, but seriously where have you been this site has been crap since last summer.... there were 5000000 people join during the play-offs... 90% know nothing about hockey... i find i check this board less and less as i get irritated with the idiotic posts and comments... i do go on to the invite only board..which is for fans only...

I don't really have anything to say other than who do you think you are? You're delusional. These are public boards and people are going to act (and type) whatever way they want. Good god, it's the internet.


I hear what you are saying................It is too much to expect fans to get behind the players and the team on the eve of the SC playoffs because there are idiots out there who have access to the internet. Forgive me for thinking that a team that has just won the President's trophy for the second year running and got to the SC Final Game 7 last year deserves more solid backing.

It's like saying we shouldn't complain about the riots because anyone can get hold of a box of matches.............I don't buy that, surely what is going throughout the heads of these idiots is what is wrong.
I didn't say there should not be a wide range of opinions, I said I would expect more support and reasoning in these opinions, given our achievements.

Of course I don't expect everyone to agree, however in my opinion this is the fan base of a team struggling in the lower regions of the league.

Some feel your number of posts reflect if you are "a big dog" others may feel if you have nothing of importance to say stop posting. If you can't add to the post then don't. Over posting may make you think your a big dog but c'mon.

Constantly complaining about the fan base and labeling people as band wagoners. Believing one's own arrogance as an indication of superiority.

Just shut up and watch the game.


I also want to add that these people normaly claim to have supported the team since they played in the WHL

I get irritated by some of the stuff I see on the boards too. I usually ignore them though sometimes I would argue with them. But I would not condemn them as they have every right to an opinion. I cannot make a claim that I am a bigger fan than any of the posters on here as everyone expresses themselves in different ways.
Think about it in this way. Another die hard fan could be putting you in one of those categories after reading one of your post

This board would be a very dull place if everyone just agreed with each other........
