Nope. Became a true leaf fan this year. Started following them after my Blackhawks won the cup.

Never hurts, I love em now.

Since I was 7-8.. I think the first year I really started watching was 03-04.. and then I sorta dipped off when the lockout happened and have really gotten back into it this year.

First season was the 97-98 year, so since then. It hurts less and less now that I am really used to losing.

Since I was about 7 years old (1997). Nowadays I just expect failure, that way I won't be TOO disappointed by them not making the playoffs again... and again...

First started watching in 98-99. Saw 6 straight years of playoffs. I have not seen the playoffs since I was 14. I am now 22.

1995-96 season is when I really started watching. That was a rough season to get through as well as the two playoff misses in '97 and '98; so I think I'm immune to the losing in a way.

Was born the year after they last won the Cup. Have been a fan since I was 4. It's been a lifetime of disappointment. Burke, are you listening?

Would have been around 1980 when I finally had the opportunity to understand what was going on as a youngster. Man it has already been 32 years, and even endured the Harold Ballard era.....If you folks think these last six or so years are bad, just be lucky to the younger members not having to endure the Ballard years.

Started rooting for them in 1980 when I turned 8 and my uncle sent me a Leaf jersey for my bday. That was 31 years ago. Fortunately when I was young I didn't realize how bad they were, and turned 20 in time for their final 4 appearances in the early 90s.

Always cheers for the Leaf since the day i was born. But never seriously until after the lockout when i was in grade 5-6.
Fan for 17 years.
Hardcore fan for like 5-6 years.

SO true. I can remember Vaive scoring 50goals.

You younger guys think this is bad try missing the playoffs when 4/5 teams in the division got in.
