Fanboy Posted September 22, 2017 Share Posted September 22, 2017 So 3 Years ago I reached my limit with my team at the time, the Vancouver Canucks, after following them for 44 years I had enough of the losing and not being able to win just one Stanley Cup. So I wrote a letter to Vancouver Management and I burned all my Vancouver jerseys, hats, tire cover, etc etc. 3 Years later the Canucks are one of the worst teams in the NHL and I don't miss their losing ways at all. I am not going to be the loser fan who cheers all his life for a loser team. But I love hockey so I decided to be the #1 fan of the Vegas Golden Knight, this is my new team from now until I die. Go Golden Knight. Incidentally here is my letter that I wrote resigning myself from being a Canucks Fan AFTER 44 YEARS I'M QUITTING AS A CANUCKS FAN formerfan » Fri May 01, 2015 8:55 am Last week after the Canucks disappointing loss to the Flames I have finally reached my limit of waiting, hoping and praying for the Canucks to win a Stanley Cup. After 44 years of waiting I have finally had enough. I packed away my 9 hockey jerseys, 4 hats, tire cover, 2 flags and 2 blankets into a box and said this is enough waiting. I do not want to be one of those fans that waits their whole life to see their team try to win the ultimate prize. Life is too short for that, I have already dedicated 44 years to this team, I do not want to be like a Leafs fan who is waiting for 48 years for their team to even reach the finals or how about a Chicago Cubs fan, there is not one alive who has seen them win a World Series, it's been 108 years for them!!. Nope I'm not going to be one of those fans who gets swayed by the media and the hype to cheer on their team every start of the season, hockey is a business and as long as fans come and pay and watch and buy the $17.00 beers and pay $700 for a pair of platinum seats the hype will be there. Unfortunately for me I can't justify watching a losing team for those kind of prices and hype. Simple math will show us that the Canucks will not win a Stanley Cup until 2031 possibly. First Stanley Cup appearance 1970 - 1981 11 years waiting Second Stanley Cup appearance 1981 - 1994 13 years waiting Third Stanley Cup appearance 1994 - 2011 17 years waiting Possible Fourth appearance 2011 - 2031 20 years waiting I'm sorry but I'm not willing to wait until 2031 to maybe see the Canucks win the Stanley Cup, I will not be a Chicago Cubs fan who has waited for 108 years and is still waiting. I'm an athlete myself and a competitor and I play to win and not just have fun and I expect my hockey team to win also, unfortunately 44 years without winning is too long to wait. So this is my official good bye letter to Vancouver management, Trevor Linden and everyone else in Canucks Nation. Not going to be a loser fan like a Leafs or a Cubs fan. P.S. Now that Edmonton has McDavid, they will be making the playoffs and the Kings and Sharks will not be missing the playoffs next year so that leaves the Canucks not making the playoffs, so be patient Canuck fans maybe in your lifetime you might see another Stanley Cup final, but I'm not wasting anymore time with this team Goodbye formerfan Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
