Some of this is jealousy, for sure. But I think another part of it is; frankly, a lot of people who live in Van (and BC) come across as quite arrogant.
We are very proud (to a boastful degree) of our city/province. Sometimes to the point that our statements come across as rude and ignorant.
I think the idea of someone disliking us because of "jealousy" is completely ridiculous and wishful fan-biased thinking, personally. In fact, the fact that many Canuck fans would jump to this mentality probably rightfully contributes to how annoying we are as a group.

Whether it's fair or not, they're annoyed by us because we're presented/we present ourselves in a way that's legitimately annoying to people, plain and simple, IMO.

I think 90% of it is that we as a group lack self-awareness when we're enthusiastic about something related to the team. It's magnified because we have so many fans and the city's culture is so rah-rah about the team.

This is why I dislike the embrace the hate idea and think it makes us look worse.

Also having a lot of fans means having a lot larger number of outspoken fans who people like to use to generalize about the entire fanbase.

I would make the switch over but I still feel attached to me standing next to Ryan Kesler.

I didn't want to switch my Kesler avatar either, but I gave in. Canucks better have a good first period or I'm switching back.

No problem with regards to the fix, it took about one second of work. Saving the image probably took longer than it did to fix it.

Photoshop, yes. It's an older version (CS3) but it gets the job done.

I just made this one for The Classless One (though feel free to take it if you want):




In case you don't follow, Jason Garrison played for the Nanaimo Clippers (with "Clippers" referring to the type of boat):
