i think we will win i really do but im done if we lose. long story short after being a sharks fan for around 9 years you gotta realize a bad investment when youve made one. choking for the last 5 years is more than a sign that this core cant do it, another big game and the big boys dont show up. same ol blah blah crap coach who cant adjust, offensive stars disappear in big games, late game collapses always losing in the same fashion.

I don't know what Sharks you are watching but the Sharks I have been watching are losing in new fashions every time.

Same here. It's just not worth the emotional investment to continually be let down like this year after year after year. If the Sharks lose game 7 I will stop watching hockey. If I can't cheer for the Sharks then Im not gonna cheer for any other team either.

I love hockey and the Sharks too much to ever actually quit on them.

I like to think I flirt with the idea, but I'd never actually give up on them. I just take the punches to the gut every spring and magically get happy around late summer thinking that this could be the year they finally change.

Basically I'm an idiot.

Yeah, my girlfriend and I have had lots of relationship ending arguments.

We always get back together though and it never comes to fruition. I just can't stay mad at her!

I just dont like being labeled as a choker.


Other people make fun of me for it, and make fun of this team.

You think they made fun of us before? if we blow a 3-0 series lead to one of the teams with the cockiest fanbases, It will be beyond painful.

I'll probably not wear my sharks jersey for atleast 5 years.

True fans wouldn't even consider giving up on this team.

9 years of being a fan huh? Find another team, we have enough bandwagon fans.

So why have you been around this long? It could be argued that this team hasn't played to its potential since the lockout.

You have to wonder if the stress involved outweighs the excitement that comes with a win. I already have high blood pressure so I'm just about at the point, after several several years, where I'm beginning to wonder if being this emotionally invested in a team is actually worth the strain. On top of that, spending thousands of dollars on season tickets just to be annually disappointed. Right now I'm saying no but we'll see how I feel in the morning when I sober up.

there comes a breaking point which i dont think some of you understand. one can simply fall out of love with a team after serveral disappointments.

Dude, be a true fan. Yeah, it sucks to lose year after year, but knowing that your undying loyalty was there in times of heartbreak, anger, disappointment, sadness, etc... and to finally have your team reach the pinnacle is what is truly rewarding as a fan. Toews forbid it, but if we go down on Thursday, I'll be the last person jumping ship. Sharks in 7, lets go.

Maybe it's the fans?

I saw that entire building in red and on their feet screaming their ***** off tonight and in game 4.

It was intimidating for me to watch even, I was nervous as all hell.

I'm going Thursday and I've decided I don't care about what happens, I'm going to cheer as loud as I always do for the Sharks and watch one hell of a hockey game, because that's what this team does to a fan after watching years of heart break.

I'll never stop rooting, I just can't root as hard as I used to when I was a kid. But if you ever think I'll use any other team in an NHL video game then you better think again.

I'll never stop cheering for them, but you have to wonder if it remains worth it to rush home from work/school to see the meaningless November 5:00pm away games in Minnesota when they just take a **** on the ice every year in the playoffs.

Ultimately, if you don't consider the order of the wins and it ends up the Sharks lose this year in the 2nd to the Wings in 7 games, that's not going to be a terribly surprising conclusion to this season. The only surprising thing was getting up 3-0 on the Wings. But no matter how good this team looked, we knew they were deficient on defense and in goal, and everything hinged on the defense playing at or near their best the entire time another skilled team was on its game. That seems beyond the capabilities of this defensive unit.

BUT the 3-0 lead now looms large with game 7 coming up and as the old saying goes, this is why they play all season to get the higher seed. This is where the regular season success the team enjoyed on its hot run to end the season comes in to play.

I'm too pissed to make conscious decision about this. This year I stopped watching EVERY game until March and just read here every day, but that just kind of naturally happened. I dunno every year brings a different story which gets me in to watching the playoffs somehow.

I think I would be a bigger fan if we could blow everything up and watch a rebuild tbh at this point.
