Why Is There So Much Hate Towards Luongo

150 posts in this topic

People like to take their anger and frustration out by blaming him as an individual, rather than him as part of the team.

Gotta cheer for whoever is on the ice in a Canucks jersey

:towel:

I love Lu?

But people here need to have someone to dump on, so he's the flavour of the moment.

Other players have been subjected to the same fate: Ballard, Rome, Raymond, Bieksa

Can't please all the people.

Ok, if any of you do not hate Lui then you don't have to read.

WHY?

Why do you all hate Luongo?

What has he ever done to us?

Nothing.

Those times in which you say he "melted down", no.

The only reason he "melted down" was because he was the only goalie playing. If Schneids wins today I can guaranty that Lui and Schneids will lead us to the cup.

Anyway, I'm off topic, why do you all hate Luongo? He's never done anything bad to us, or at least not on purpose. So come on, cheer on both of our goalies and GO CANUCKS GO.

Fans bandwagon when the team starts to play well.

That happens to be 2007 or later - the years we've had Luongo for.

They jump on the bandwagon and just do not know how big an impact Luongo had on our team going from fringe teams like Calgary to the elite team that it is today.

They simply have no appreciation for Luongo because they do not know that we were terrible before him.

So when the team that was built around Luongo became better, Luongo became the scapegoat.

It's easy to blame the goalie...for goals he lets in, rather than the goals the team fails to score..."CBS CARES"

Because he melts down at the most inopportune time and has such a fragile state of mind. Always thinks the world is out to get him and question his abilities. You think people around the league say Luongo is fragile and inconsistent they're just making stuff up? Remember a few years ago he was voted the players most GM's would build a team around and hyped to death. Ya people hate him for no reason....right.

I really doubt that anyone HATES Lou... sure..he gets his game picked apart...but thats not a personal attack...its about performance or preference,

Lou has worked very hard, performed very well and is a great Canuck but like everything...there is always someone waiting in the wings to take your spot or gets better than you. Its happening to Lou and will happen to every team member in turn. He may not have a future in Vancouver but that does not lessen whats hes given us in the past !

Scapegoat and unrealistic expectations. People just look at the hottest goalie every year and expect Luongo to match that guy. Plus people don't seen to have a clue how hard it is to play goal with such pressure.

Because in the past he was too cocky but not backing it up. I don't have much respect for that.

Contrast that with Cory who's confident but humble... He performs and takes accountability when he doesn't.

I don't think you will have to worry about it too much longer. After this year he will be gone. They can't possibly keep him after starting Schneids the last two games. What are they going to say, "Hey we want you as our #1 but when our backs are against the wall we will play the backup"?

I have been a big supported of Lu and its too bad that this is how it ends. I bet Lu gets traded to Tampa in the offseason.

Good bye Luo and good luck.
