Bandwagon A Lot Lighter!!!!

I'd say at least 80% of people that have watched the Habs during their playoff run are off the bandwagon (they suck, trade everyone for a bag of pucks, price sucks.........)
What percentage of "Habs Fans" jumped off the Bandwagon following their elimination last night????

HAHAHA....a fan is a fan.
If someone cheers for a team, they are a fan. If some people are realistic fans who see the teams faults and understand that there is a chance that the team might lose....they are still a fan, not a bandwagon jumper like you like to refer to.

I don't understand the term bandwagon jumper. Just because some people choose to be realistic and admit when the team is going to lose as opposed to saying they will win every game and the Stanley Cup at the end of the year....doesn't make them any less of a fan.

I knew the Habs weren't going to win this series after the second game. We had too many missed chances, hit too many goal posts and didn't score enough powerplay goals to win this series. Philly got all the bounces because they worked hard and capitalized on all their chances, the Habs didn't do that in one game of this series so why would I lie to myself and say that they are going to comeback from a 3-1 deficit and win the series when it was plain to see that it wasn't going to happen.

Somebody get the TV Ratings for the Regular season, and the TV ratings for the Playoffs... that should answer a lot.

I for 1 love this team with passion. Been watching almost every game i can since around 1990, stuck by this team during the hard times.
Last year and this year combined, been to the Bell Center 12 times (Its too hard to find tickets), 4 times to Scotia Bank Center to watch them Face the Senators, Once to the HSBC Arena vs the Sabres, and Boston for the playoffs this year, Game 4 .
Wish i had season tickets.

Hey realism is one thing. The bandwagon is something else.

A bandwagon fan is the kind of guy you find out about when the team is doing well. then all of a sudden he has followed the Habs for years. When the going gets rough, or the team does not win it all, they moan and quack a bit. Say a lot of ignorant things. Then they disappear until the team is doing well again

Another group is the eternal cliff jumper types. One bad game and it's trade this guy, fire that guy, call up so and so from the AHL, send so and so to the AHL. yada yada yada. No balance. Eternally pessimistic. Totally digital, black/white, left/right, up/down . . . . Two bad games and they will never watch another game. Mysteriously they survive cliff jumps and keep coming back.

Oddly enough, most of the bandwagoneers on on boards like this where they remain anonymous. Most guys that I know that are habs fans take it hard when they lose but stay solid fans. Criticism is realistic. Hiding behind a screen-name on the net is easy to do. You can't hide in real life

hey, I'm a bandwagon fan, but I haven't jumped off and will root for Habs (with the exception in games with Isles) next season. Just one wish though: please, keep bros on your team!!

so what, people cheer for the Habs all year long, buy the gear, buy tickets and whatnot. If I want to cheer for Dallas now I'll cheer for them if I want to.

HAHAHA....thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess the only category I fit into is a die-hard Habs fan. I cheer for them whether they win or lose, but I also know when my team is beat too.

First off I am a Habs fan first and I am a hockey fan second. from Edmonton Alberta.

Win or Lose I am a Habs fan. I could give 2 sh*ts about any other team in the league. Come on 80%, are you getting your stats from a leaf station.

Sometimes people say stuff when they are dissapointed after a loss.
Personally I got up this morning and people were looking forward to the UFA season and thats fun. Get players that can help for next season. The playoffs are done for me, I am not watching another game until pre season. But talking about the season and targeted players we might go after gets myself anyway through the summer. I am no Ban wagon jumper as you say it, I can guarantee that a lot of these fans on this site are hard core Hab fans. They are very passionate about there team.

I was depressed last night we lost and a lot of people vented, we are human.

I have also noticed people are still writing today, so maybe there are a lot of real Hab fans and not ban wagon jumpers you speak of. Honestly go write this thread on about 55% of the american team threads like Florida, maybe that will make sense.

You might find some bandwagon fans there.

The Sharks bandwagon crashed and burned before I could properly hop on, so I guess I'm stuck on this one.

You're fine.I think he wanted to point out the overcritical fairweather fans who took ''notice'' of the Habs late in the season and in the playoff run only and now have jumped off the bandwagon.You know,the ''I told you so'' people.Not other team's fans who have decided to root for the Habs this spring or casual Habs fans.
