The 10 types of Leaf fans (and how to deal with them)
 
If you're a Leaf fan, you're not reading this because it's too hard to make out the words when your eyes are encrusted by day-old tears of blood. But what if you're not a Leaf fan? Well, two things. First, lucky you. And second, there's a good chance you'll still have to deal with one of us eventually. And that's bad news, because these days Leaf fans are probably the most pathetic and depressing group of people you could imagine.... :bonk:

Hahhhh, oh that's just too funny. And sadly true. :haha:

I'd say most fans are either in the "just one cup guy" who's getting older or The delusional Idiot category. lol

I'd say I'm in the Youngster category but I'm already miserable with how the team is doing lol

A hardnosed defensive team and Toskala finally having a good season :haha:

I'd say this pretty well encompasses the personalities on this board too.

"The Second Cup" is giving a free coffee today to anybody who comes in wearing an NHL team jersey. Sorry, Leaf fans excluded....

It wasn't really mentioned, but i'm the "doesn't really care Leaf fan". the guy that's barely a fan, but is technically one since he passively roots for them without getting too emotionally invested. Doesn't get upset when they lose, but wants them to win when watching a game. Pays attention to the goings on because one can't ignore the Leafs if one lives in Toronto. Hates most of the 10 listed Leaf fans, but doesn't hate the team. Yeah - that's me.

The Fixer
Description - This guy wants the Leafs to win, and they would, dammit, if they'd just listen to him. He has the blueprint all laid out. And he wants to tell you all about it. In detail.
How to recognize him - He's probably posting a trade proposal thread at hfboards.com right now.
What to do if you see one - Listen patiently to his explanation of why a Stajan/Blake/White package could probably land Ilya Kovalchuk and a pick, nod pensively, then encourage him to phone a radio call-in show to reach a wider audience.
Hahaha I'm a member at hfboards :(

Funny article but they left off a couple. Mainly the "Tanker" fan who desperately wants the Leafs to do everything they can to suck and stock up on top 5 picks, and complains any time they make a short term move to get better.

Though they've gone into hibernation now...

I would also call myself more of a casual fan... I kind of like watching the Leafs because it doesn't feel as life or death/anger-inducing as watching the Raptors... it's a light, easy-going experience without the strings

thats me :police:

I used to be one Cup guy who's getting older, but now I hate the Leafs and I don't care anymore because in bitter that Hamilton will never get a team it deserves on account of these arse-clowns. I just watch now because I find their losing wholly entertaining. It's nice watching these guys get the lack of respect they so richly deserve.

Yeah, and considering most here are puckheads i see a direct corollation. The fact is, Make Believe fans are as delusional and desperate as it gets. They must wake up in cold sweats a couple times a week. lol

There is no other fanbase quite leaf fans, and that isn't a compliment. ;)

Yeah, i'm gonna wear an ugly ass Hockey Jersey to get a shitty coffee. Oyyy

Vito From Hamilton 11-22-2009 12:44 PM

Holy Crap, Batman! They beat Washington IN A SHOOTOUT?!? Didn't see that one coming. I guess I'll just have to be patient and wait excitedly for their next loss. lol

You could. But you won't get a free coffee because I made it up. It was a joke. lol

I'm #10.

But lucky, the bullet dodn't hit anything vital.

hahaha

Then you'd fit right in on the Leafs first line. :dancing:

Superjudge 11-24-2009 02:03 PM

good lord, sadly!

XiaominWu 11-24-2009 02:20 PM

Funny, in that lacking-any-originality sorta way, which seems to dominate the blogosphere.

I'd say that 99% of fans are #10..... the other guys get all the attention, though.

And what about #11, The "Hater"...... still a fan but won't admit it and puts up a constant "Leaf-o-phobe" front to make sure nobody gets wind of the truth.

*Looks at JeffB* , for a guy who doesn't care for the leafs, he sure knows a lot about what's going on right now lol
