Agreed with all of that BK.

But neither Cherry nor MacLean loved the Leaves until they ended up at the centre of the universe.

They are victims of "Stockholm syndrome" (aka "prison bitches").

I think they hate the Canucks simply because they know Leaf fans tend to hate the Canucks.

It all comes back to the stinky old Leafcock.

True, but I also get a sense that they dislike Vancouver more than any other Canadian city.

Like if Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, and even Montreal went up against us, they'd be cheering them on as they did with Boston. Just a gut feeling.

That's because Leaf fans despise the Canucks more than any other team these days imo

(so they make their CBC bitches dance to that tune).

If so, is it because of jealousy due to the fact the city of Vancouver has risen in prominence?

Or is it because Canuck fans have been merciless to Leafers over the past few years?

Y'know BK, Canuck fans on the net have the reputation of being MAJOR assholes.

Especially toward Leaf fans.

No idea why.

All good points about Van.

Who knows.....maybe in a few years if the Oilers ever manage to get their act together, they'll become the new Canucks in Toronto eyes.

Regarding Internet reputations, I'm not overly familiar with the backstory, but I do vaguely remember some things from way back in 2000. I was a young college student at the time.

Back then, I think there was this place called "rivals" ( or penaltybox.com?) and I seem to recall some Leafs hockey moderator named Rick Couchman getting absolutely lit up by some Canucks trolls. It was a long time ago though and so I'm not entirely sure if that's even true.

The Oilers are hot garbage. No size, no D and no goaltending.

CBC were huge Canuck homers during the 2011' finals. I'm shocked anyone can claim anything different.

You guys claim they love the Leafs. Do you listen to them? They bash the team constantly. Yet you think their deep-throating of your team was hate. I don't get it.

And Leaf fans don't hate the Canucks. It's the other way around. It's stricktly a one-sided feud.

I don't know about that.

I might be wrong, but the impression I got was that the media's in Toronto, Edmonton, and especially Calgary, went on a massive 'smear' campaign to label the Canucks as divers, whiners, biters, based on isolated incidents.......while also indirectly implying that no other team in the league was dirty, and that we were the most hated team amongst 29 other teams as opposed to 4 (Calgary, Edmonton, Chicago, and maybe Boston).

I think Damien Cox even went out of his way to talk about how 'karma' caught up with the Canucks and that Boston deserved to win because "they play the game the right way" (not acknowledging the fact that they play just as dirty.........only difference being that they have the ability to beat people up after the whistle).

Edmonton went as far as labelling Boston as 'Canada's team', while no one in the Alberta media (more specifically, 960 "The Fan") acknowledged the fact that real Canuck fans and stand up Vancouver citizens cleaned up the mess downtown after the riot.

A sporting rivarly is one thing...........and I don't begrudge Toronto, Calgary, or Edmonton for cheering against the Canucks out jealousy.......although I found it quite bizarre that Calgary literally accepted Boston as "their" team. However - some kind of defense or acknowledgement towards the city of Vancouver for cleaning up after the rioters (riots that were caused by a very small percentage of the population) should have been acknowledged........and it was not.

It was also NOT acknowledged that classy Canuck fans actually cheered on Lucic and many of the Boston Bruin players during the cup celebration........but instead, we were labelled as 'classless'.

So no - I don't see CBC as someone that was 'pumping our tires' during the playoffs. Not at all. To Don Cherry's credit however, he atleast acknowledged before Game 7 that his "heart was with Boston, but he thought Vancouver would win the cup."

Cox seems to hate Mike Gillis. Not sure if there's been some issue. But yes, he did crap on the Canucks a lot.

CBC was very pro Vancouver though.

Maybe.

Another thing - This was from the January 7th 2012 when the Canucks got their revenge win over Boston:

1) Don Cherry accuses the Sedins' of cowardly leaving the ice during the Bruin/Canuck scrum. In actuality, it was a genius move on the twins' part as the Nucks would have been called for Too Many Men had they not. By contrast, tough guy Lucic came on and got ejected (my memory is a bit murky now as this was almost two years ago, but something to this effect). Canucks ended up getting a power play as a result of Sedins' quick thinking (combined with Lucic's buffoonery).

2) Weisse gets called a coward (by Don Cherry and Boston announcers). for supposedly ducking Thornton. In actuality however, Weisse and Adam McQuaid were getting ready to scrap when Thornton dropped his gloves and caught Weisse off guard. This was confirmed by Brad Marchand by the way in an off ice interview.

3) Don Cherry on Marchand hit to Salo: Cherry acknowledges that the hit to Salo was dirty, but then states, "Salo is one guy on that team that plays the game honestly" (indirectly implying that the mass majority of Canuck players do not play the game honestly).

4) Stanley Cup: Sedin getting speed bagged by Marchand. CBC and everyone made it look like Sedin was too cowardly to respond back to Marchand. In actuality, Sedin was allowing Marchand to punch him in the face as to draw a penalty. It worked.........but unfortunately, Sedin let the emotions get the better of him and he sprouted off to Kelly Sutherland.........which got him a 10 minute misconduct.


5) 1994: Don Cherry accuses Pavel Bure of threatening to hold out on Game 7 if his contract demands weren't met. Quinn defends Bure. Cherry then says, "Quinn is a good Irish guy, and he'll stick up for his guys no matter what" (Backhanded compliment - implication being that Quinn KNOWS that Bure was going to hold out but stuck up for Bure out of principle).

6) Toronto/Boston Game 7 this past season: Don Cherry states, "We won't see any trouble out there (referring to the thousands of Leaf fans gathered outside Air Canada Center). There are good fans out there." (an indirect shot at both Vancouver fans and Montreal fans........in reference to the riots).

Those are just a few examples, but it's comments and pettiness like that (CONSISTENTLY over the years), which makes many Vancouverites really wonder about the motives behind CBC.

I'm not sure if I'd put Stock in that category, but McLean/Healy/Cherry.......most definitely.

I think Stock is just too unintelligent to have his own concrete opinion and sort of just 'goes with the flow'.
