Usually a team has to accomplish something to be hated...


Mm-hmm.

s*** of fire? Don't they make some type of medication or topical cream to alleviate that?

On a serious note, I think it really comes down to the sense of entitlement without having won anything that gets on most other fans' nerves. Or it might just be because Bobby Lou is such an asshat and we're sick of hearing the "Loooooooooou" chants after every routine save.

Yep, that's my reason. Well that and the Sedin's are REALLY annoying whether it be diving or guaranteeing victories.

Constant complaining from Gillis/Vigneault is what really stuck out to me this year...I was almost going to go for the Canucks after the Wings' elimination, but then Gillis or Vig (Forget who it was) started bitching about the amount of powerplays/penalties in the Chicago series after they lost a couple of games. Didn't see him say a word in the first 3 games...

I think this is just imagined.. all season long, all you heard on the sports radio shows/newspapers in Vancouver is that none of this matters because the playoffs are where you really prove yourself. We've had enough regular season success that we all know it means almost squat (tho home ice advantage in game 7 last night definitely helped).


apparently luongo didn't get this message....

regardless, I just don't like it when I'm with a bunch of canucks fans watching the playoffs and they are all experts all of a sudden. These are people I KNOW watch maybe 3 regular season games. Then I ask them if they know who Pavel Bure is and they are like "Who?"

Thats like asking a wings fan who Federov is... and everyone knows that - and im not exaggerating when I say everyone.

Regardless, I hate every team other than the wings. there is only varying degrees of hate.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Up until the Finals I expected the Canucks to roll and was pretty all right with it. After the complaining, the guarantees, and Luongo going after Thomas - I was thrilled to see them lose Game 7.

I don't hate the Canucks. What I dislike is the rioting and looting after their team loses a Game 7. There is no excuse for it. I felt the same when Detroit rioted after they won the World Series back in 1984. I mean, its just a freaking game.

I dislike the Nucks more now than before the playoffs. Kesler looks like a prideful punk, Luongo isn't the great goalie he's made out to be and I'm annoyed nearly anytime he's mentioned, but I think their fans are the real kicker. Their fans, pretty much all of Canada when the playoffs started, just seem so arrogant and basically expected them to sweep everybody.

I have never ever heard of this supposed hatred. I doesn't really make sense to me. But I'll venture a guess. Sometimes, West Coast teams, people, states, etc. are not really too highly thought of among the people in the Midwest and on the East Coast...which might make sense if Vancouver were in the U.S. I'm baffled by this though.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

If last nights shameful acts weren't enough reason to answer this question, I don't know what is...

best and most appropriate resurrection of a thread ever by the way!

1994 SCF loss = Vancouver riots.
2011 SCF loss = Vancouver riots.

They seem to have the second part down cold; time to work on the first part.

I never really paid much attention to most of the players, but Burrows is pretty much like another player on the Ducks to me now. Diving, taking cheap shots, bitching. Just play the damn game.

Actually, seems like they're performing both portions of the equation pretty well. :ph34r:

I don't hate the Canucks, but I am really glad they lost because so many of the players whom I liked were acting without class in that series.

Canucks still remain in the top half of teams I like in the league. Boston just happened to be the team in the East I liked second most this year, and one of my all time favourite teams.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

Am I the only one who really hopes that the Canuck fan who took the flash/bang grenade to the junk was actually one of the green men?

I just assumed the Green Men had no junk. How else do you get in a green spandex suit? I bet the Sedins know.
