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
