This fan base obviously doesn't deserve a Stanley Cup. If it wasn't for me being raised in BC, I would absolutely hate this team as well because of this fan base.

I hate seeing the Canucks lose like that but knowing that there are so many pathetic fans out there disappointed, gives me some comfort. Also, I know that there are obviously a group of good canucks fans, but if you compare us to the other big markets, we have one of if not the worst fan bases .

This thread doesn't need much of a description, just look at the message board...2 positive threads to 20 bashing threads.

EDIT: Let me make it more clear that I am not criticizing the disappointment, obviously we have every right to be disappointed but the way these fans reacted to losing 2 games of a 7 game series is like I said pathetic.

Whoa now. There's no need for all that text.

You should sit back and celebrate the fact that Raymond managed to stay on his feet for most of the night. :towel:

I agree, I really hate our fanbase sometimes. I think it's just that everyone's expectations are so high. We're almost as bad as TO, but at least they still support their team when they suck :P

Like the title says. I am ashamed to be a Canuck fan tonight. Not ashamed of my team but by a large portion of the 'fan' base here at CDC. What a bunch of whiny cry babies. Were we eliminated tonight? Did I miss something?

To all those whining and carping about this team. Feel free to cheer for the Flames or Oilers or any other team. I am sure those organizations will appreciate your 'support'.

You guys who became fans in the last 2 years have no clue. I have been having my heart broken by this team for 30 years and to a lot of the real fan base I am a relative newb. Some have been bleeding Canuck blue for longer than the team has been in the NHL. That's what real fans do.

So if you want off the bandwagon, that's just fine. GTFO. The real fans will carry the weight.

The only thing more annoying than the Canucks losing are fans like these on their high horses.

What do you want us to do? hold hands singing kumbaya??

You don't have to be positive, but you don't have to go blaming Keith, AV, MG, Kassian, and H Sedin.

You take the losses and hope for a good game 3. It is not the end of the world. By no means are we out of it. The odds are stacked against us but we are a good road team and a comeback isn't out of the question.

So yes, the way Canucks fans react after a loss like this is pathetic

EDIT: I'm pissed that canucks didn't come into the playoffs prepared as well but to start all these scapegoats for our losses is ridiculous. Sure go ahead and show displeasure and be ticked off but it is the way this board expresses it which in a very immature manner.

Chill. Nobody`s jumping off the bandwagon. Being unsatisfied & clearly upset is totally reasonable given the outcome.

At least it`s not just the fanbase but I hope the team is equally as unsatisfied and upset with their own results or else... that could be a bigger problem than the fanbase hopelessness.

There is no need to generalize all of us into one lump some, not all of us are bad fans.

I support this team, win or lose.

Sorry but tonight was absolutely pathetic, outscored 2-0 on the PP by the PK? seriously? that's absolutely unacceptable, especially in the playoffs

Other than the first few minutes of game 1, we did there too. I still feel Vancouver has a chance, so long as they show up in LA... If we played mistake free hockey (or at least limited our mistakes to manageable ones) we'd be up 2-0 instead of down 2-0. Too bad Edler went full retard both games instead.

okay OP, how exactly do you expect fans to react after seeing their Presidents Trophy winning team be down 2-0?? Seriously, I really do want to know. I am baffled that you feel that being disappointed is somehow innapropriate.

Did Carolina fans deserve a Cup?
Did Tampa fans deserve a Cup?

They didn't even freaking know what hockey was when their teams won the Cup
I remember CBC interviewed a Tampa resident and asked him "How do you pronouce 'Lecavalier'?" And the guy was like "uuhhh Luh Kav A Leer?"

The fans have every right to be ticked off. 41 years without a Cup. That is all.


Who cares if the fans "didn't deserve the cup" those two teams did :P

But yeah 41 years, our fans can be critical of our team okay. We have the right to express our concerns or our opinions k OP?

The booing that creeped into that game was annoying - hard to consider that the kind of spirit a city needs to fuel home wins...
