fanfor42 Posted April 3, 2015 Share Posted April 3, 2015 After following this team since 1970 It is evident that the team's success on the ice is in every way, a reflection of the fans. The team responds to what the fans feel and need. No, not every game or in any small sample size. But over time, over a statistically valid sample, the Vancouver Canucks emulate the mood and feeling of their fans. The Canuck fan base as a general comment is worried that the team isn't good enough. The fan base isn't strong enough. The average fan thinks the team isn't good enough. This isn't new. this is 45 years in the making. You know, making the odd comment that "I support of the team" isn't enough to create a positive fan base of support. Not at all. It doesn't come close to counteracting the huge wave of negative input from fans every time the team falters. 45 years this team has been around. And you know what? They get hacked on by their own fans every time they lose a game. That is ridiculous. What are the young fans thinking? Do you not realize what it takes to win a championship? Every team goes through ups and downs. Every team that has been successful has had a core of fans that support them through thick and thin. If the Canucks are going to win a championship it is the fan base that will create the atmosphere for winning conditions. The fans have got to stop bitching and complaining about every micro event. The fans need to start embracing the management and overall direction that the team is taking. If people get on board with Linden. If people get on board with Benning. If people get on board with Desjardins. If people get on board with the players. If people get on board with being a Canuck fan...then this team can reach success. The ceiling for this team is set by the expectations that the players and management believe are set for them by the fan base. Period. That statement is true in every sport and for every team. Just look down the highway to the Seahawks to see a great example of a fan base being behind their team and creating winning conditions. A championship and nearly a second one and who knows what else is to come. The Canucks deserve that kind of fan base. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
