That board is a mess!!! It's like a retard convention at that site. Seriously what an orgy of hate, jealousy and stupidity . Having perused that place over the years there is most definitely an obsession with the Canucks, the fanbase and the city of Vancouver in general.
Nothing like the generalizations over there, "they", "them", "those Canucks fans" did this, this and that. Because there absolutely aren't any dumb Flames fans right.
Seriously, the guy that runs that site must be the biggest idiot there for the simple fact that he lets these people act the way that they do. You kind of have to wonder about a guy who gives himself a handle like Bingo.
If you think that's bad, you should tune into '960 The Fan' if you ever get a chance.
Believe it or not, that station is even more ridiculous than Calgarypuck.com.
Remember when Duncan Keith injured Sedin with that dirty hit in 2012?
Obviously - a few Canuck fans were angry and may have said some stupid things, but 960 "The Fan" then devoted an entire show towards the Canucks........and if hockey was no longer just a game for British Columbians any more and if it was infact, an obsession. They cited that a lot of "strange comments come out of BC" (in response to one angry fan saying, "Duncan Keith shouldn't come back to BC" in light of his hit on Sedin), and that perhaps it wasn't just a game anymore.......and that perhaps the stress of not having won a cup was taking its toll mentally on British Columbians."
The other half of that particular show talked about how Vancouverites can't stand it when other cities on the West Coast get praised (i.e. if someone says 'Seattle is a nice city', a Vancouverite will automatically start talking about Vancouver
-). Just really stupid things like that.
And then my friends wonder why I was genuinely happy when Calgary got flooded (not because I wanted to see anything bad long term happen to anyone........but because I wanted to kick them as hard as I could when THEY were down just as they did to us two years earlier......give them a taste of their own goddamn medicine......felt so friggin good by the way, as I let it all "hang" on Facebook). It's just bullshit. Albertans would be all too happy in seeing bad things happen to Vancouver, and they kicked us down during our lowest time (i.e. Cup loss.......not defending us when good Vancouverites cleaned up the riots). I consider it one of my favorite moments in life when I expressed how I truly felt about Calgary during one of their lowest moments earlier this year.
