I have been a Cubs fan since I was a little kid. I just wanted to ask, can someone explain all the Cubs fan hate I have seen on the board recently? Someone brings up the Cubs and you are bound to see a post that reads "1908" or "the Cubs stink..."
It's not like the Cubs ruin anyone elses teams by beating them. Sure you hear a lot about them, and I can understand why it might get annoying, but why the hate? Yankees hate I understand, because the media doesn't shut up about them and they buy championships.
The Cubs are the perenial underdogs. Why do people hate on them and their fans so much? I haven't seen people ripping on Royals fans because their team isn't very good. If anything, you should all be extra nice to us masochistic Cubs fans.
From what I gather there are too many vocal Cubs fans who say "THIS IS THE YEAR!" every year and talk smack a little too loudly.
Frankly, this Cubs fan has seen more of that attitude from fans of several other teams on this site than from Cubs fans and clearly (see poll) the Northsiders are in the majority. I see a lot of Cubs fans who behave like Cyclone fans and expect the worst and hope for the best. Of course there are bad fans in every fanbase...
