fans vs cheerleaders

16 posts in this topic

Ive read alot of stuff on this board from people getting mad when fans come on here and voice their displeasure for the team and how they are performing.... real fans care so much about the team that it angers them when they see, terrible disicions being made by management, coaches and poor play by the team. Fan is short for fanatic.

When people say stuff like "real fans wouldnt rag on their team" you couldnt be more wrong .. cheerleaders are the ones that cheer no matter what happens. It doesnt matter to cheerleaders if their favorite player gets traded because in their mind every move our team makes is a good one and we should just support it no matter what.

If you want to be a cheerleader great! nothing wrong with that , but its hard as a fan to have discussions with you when you see no fault or holes in the team and the fans on here are having discussions about what the team should or could do to make them better . Cheerleaders just say everythings fine we dont need to change i love everything and so should you and shame on you for saying anything bad about our boys.

As far as i can see us Fans care way more about the team than Cheerleaders. although cheerleaders may never say anything bad about the team (there is always next year or next game i love them, rah rah rah) . remember one thing fans care so much ,poor play and a bad game ruins their night and makes them mad ... ive never been mad over somthing i dont care about.

so what im really trying to say is cheerleaders this is a discussion board , join the discussions if you have somthing to add but as far as ive seen trying to have a discussion with you cheerleaders is like trying to talk about music to beiber fans its pointless.

Also: Whiners Vs. People with well thought-out arguments... Most threads are started by the former.

You're allowed to be critical as much as you are allowed to cheer, but the difference is if you're going to be critical you better have some basis rather than an irrational reaction to very specific plays that are outweighed by the bigger body of work. Cheering requires no such basis, as it's called being positive regardless of the situation where the opposite is not so nice.

If more people would take a minute and think before making threads, this entire board would be for the better.

Too many knee-jerk, reactionary threads just complaining and reacting to things that happen in one game. I will also say this again, as I always say: too many Canucks fans don't watch games between other teams. It gives them a skewed opinion and a poor understanding of the reality of the game.

As much as I love cheerleaders (women), they don't belong in hockey!

There's 2 types of annoying fans:

Whiners: Bitch about every little thing the Canucks do wrong, expect the team to be perfect, and if they're not, they predict disaster. They don't realize that every team has problems too. Usually found going all "doom and gloom" everytime they lose a game, even if the Canucks were in the midst of a win streak before that. Even when things are going well, they find something to whine about. Or they will blame everything on one player when the problem is more widespread.

Cheerleaders: What the OP is talking about, are always complaining about "negativity". They sugar coat everything. They overuse sayings like "Beast" and "Believe in bluuuuee". They always believe in certain players, who are no longer effective.

Also there are the bandwagoners, they switch between the previous two types based on whether the team in winning or not.

Bottom line is: both anxious paranoid crybabies and overly positive cheerleaders are illogical and don't know very much about the game.

Maybe "real fans" are just those who don't need to compare their support for the team to other people's, for better or worse. This whole "fan-ier than thou" attitude on both sides is tired and never makes anyone look more like a real fan. We're going to disagree, that's why it's called a discussion forum, not an agreement forum. Let's all just agree to recognize that a difference of opinion doesn't diminish how much someone else may care about the team.

I find Cheerleaders are more into the name on the back, but fans are more into the crest on the front. Not always but it tends to be that way.

No one is a better fan then the other just some cheer differently. Some here think that if they only act negative and point out flaws and agree with all reffing decisions that they are being "objective" and smart fans.

Some think if they rabidly and unquestionably support the Canucks even when it's obvious a player deserved a suspension or that was definitely a goal against or they really were playing terrible in that stretch that they are true fans and others are trolls or bandwagoners.

Some just like Tanev's hair.

Reality is everyone is a fan of different opinions or backgrounds and it would be a bit more fun if elitism played no part in what kind of fan you are and instead we respected that we all wear the same shade of blue.
