I hate to break this to you, but the only people Vancouver has a bad reputation with is a select group of insecure Canucks fans who just can't stop whining about how unfair the world is.

I am a Canucks fan, born and raised in Chilliwack, currently living in Calgary. The only place I see this ongoing crap about how hated the Canucks are is pretty much on this board. I swear there are people here who must surf the internet 24 hours a day looking for something to post about how hated the Canucks are ... just so they can justify how everyone picks on them. When a Canadian team does better than the rest of Canadian teams, that team will be disliked by fans of other Canadian teams because they make their team look bad. If you don't believe me, ask anyone how the Oilers were the team to hate during the Gretsky era. Now it's the Canucks. And outside of Ontario, it's ALWAYS been the Leafs just because they are the Leafs.

It's sport rivarly. Get over it.


Well said, I can't believe how whiney alot of Canuck fans are. It embarrasses me being associated with them

If I was in charge of the CBC I'd start getting cozy with the CHL. Start broadcasting games on Friday nights. The rights would be inexpensive. You get good hockey and stars of the future. And it would be truly Canadian. If the CBC loses the NHL they can just have HNIC-CHL (Hockey Night in Canada-CHL)

Knowing our luck we'll get nothing but OHL games.


SportsNet One beat CBC to Friday night hockey. Last night they showed the Calgary - Edmonton game. Next Friday is Erie @ London.

Teenagers from Maple Ridge ,Surrey, Delta, Coquitlam, and Burnaby need to grow up*****

Vancouver had nothing to do with the riots.


Don't go half-cocked there, There were several Vancouver-residents charged as well. We're pretty much all tarred with the same brush.

Still want to say that Vancouverites weren't involved when they were the 2nd highest number of rioters charged? Sort of blows your statement out of the water, doesn't it? Eh, Merci?

Hold on, I thought the riots were caused by anarchists and criminals flown in from Toronto and Portland. And since when were Surrey, Burnaby, Richmond, North Vancouver, Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, Abbotsford, New Westminster, and West Vancouver not considered part of what is generally known to the world as "Vancouver". I mean, hardly anybody lives in "Vancouver" proper.
