Arrogant? Leaf fans?

Surely you must be kidding. You can call them a lot of things... overly-optimistic sometimes, loyal to a fault maybe.... but arrogant? That's pure and complete bullshit. I've never met an "arrogant leaf fan" in my life.

i've met plenty of arrogant leaf fans, they're just arrogant for other reasons than being leaf fans.

In all honesty, i find the 'stereotypical' leaf fan a twat (and obviously i am a leaf fan), but i also don't like to judge or label based on stereotypes.
Well, the question was, why are Leafs fans disliked so we're trying to figure this out. It's not all Leaf fans. I'm one, but I doubt anyone would dislike me. It's the collective.

For example, the last time the Leafs were in the playoffs - back in the 1800's - there was a news story from who knows where. These Leaf fans had travelled down somewhere in the States (Carolina?) and there they were, faces painted, carrying on. Fine, all well and good. But then they started belting out Canada's national anthem - in front of the Americans, that tired, old Canadian inferiority complex, wrapped up in the superiority complex unique to Toronto fans - the fire of which is stoked by MLSE. Take a fan base that's not disliked - say, well, the Carolina Hurricanes. If they came here to the shiny, new Maple Leaf Square, and went on like a bunch of twats, we'd dislike them.

It's a certain, rather large segment of the fan base, it's MLSE, it's crap teams, it's Tim Hortons, it's I AM CANADIAN!, it's the Centre of the Hockey Universe, it's Leafs NATION. It's all of those things combined.

The thing about us leafs fans is that we get overly happy after a win and overly pissed after a loss. When we win, it's all parade jokes and it's stanley cup time. But when we lose, it's Kessel is a bust, so many draft picks lost for this pos, no cup till 1967 bullshit. A lot of us are just bipolar.

I challenge you to present a single passionate fanbase that does not exhibit the same trait.

How did i know after reading the title of this thread it will be full of Leaf fans vs Jeffb posts?

Leaf fans are hated because majority are not knowledgeable, are band wagoners and are just LEAF FANS, not fans of the sport...

I cant count how many times i've tried to discuss the stanley cup playoffs during a conversation where "leaf fans" were present and couldn't add to the convo because the leafs weren't in it... Not to mention people saying "Once the leafs are out, who cares?"

trash

Once my teams are out, I don't give a shit. I'm not terribly knowledgeable, but who cares? I've watched pretty much every Blue Jays game since the late 80's and almost every Raptor game since their inception. Before they pissed me off, I watched every Leaf game from the mid-80's up until a couple years ago. I really don't care about the other teams. Sports...it's the same shit game after game after game which is boring, unless you're rooting for someone. I've watched a hell of a lot of games in my life, but I really have nothing to add to the conversations about the inner workings of a team or whatnot. I don't watch it in that way. Which, y'know, is perfectly valid.

So your a fan of a specific team(s) within different sports... once there out you dont pay attention?

So you tell me... do you only visit the Raptors section of RF forums or do you post, read or have input in other non raptor related threads?

Are you a homer? Do you get to know players, there talents or work ethics once they get traded or signed to "The team your rooting for/Your team" or do you follow them as players of THE sport?

See this is the problem i have... It's not only the leafs, its alot of teams, in different sports... either NHL or NBA... Leafs fans are notorious for being this way... but other teams have these types of fans too... thats why there hated by people like me...

Be a fan and die hard one at that for your team... but also be a fan once your teams out.. and respect the sport...

Haters!

Since there are clearly some pretty big Leaf fans here. and the other guys posting here know we are, i'd have to say there are some pretty ignorant and insulting comments and posts going on.

I don't understand. So Leaf fans are not knowledgable because they don't watch other NHL games not involving the leafs? First off how do you know what other people watch and second of all what does it matter? Watching Leaf games alone is enough for people to understand how the sport works. Personally, i rarely / almost never watch a game not involving my teams and that includes basketball. What's wrong with that and how does it make me not respect the sport?
