There were about a hundred thousand hockey fans and about a hundred goons who brought along the stuff they needed to break
windows and start fires. I know the headlines have made all Vancouver hockey fans vandals and criminals but that was not the case.
Somehow these events draw idiots. I was dissapointed that the Canucks lost but to do the damage these a-holes did was unacceptable.
The funny part was that before the game they were talking about potential Boston riots if the B's win. Our Local Liberal Public Radio even had the Vancouver Chief of Police on the air and they were asking him why can Canada conduct celebrations like this and Boston can't. Clearly they did not do any research and their Cheif did not bring up 1994.
I started to like the Cubbies due to Harry Caray, and the 7th inning stretch. Added something, and they aren't the same since he passed. The whole city seemed to have some team spirit, or maybe my imagination was rampant.
No Yankees fan here, no fear.
There is a ready solution: ban the Canucks permanently from the playoffs. End of story. The oafish Vancouver sports fans have proven twice that they cannot be trusted to conduct themselves as respectful adults.
I don't think you have to worry about that, they've blown their chances for another 20 years.
Two other points: the people rioting weren't Canucks fans, they were run of the mill idiots who wanted a riot.
The other solution is to not have 50,000 people drinking for 8 hours and watching tv together downtown.
This is a forum for Canadians. What are you doing showing an American flag in here and having an opinion?
LMAO... What a noob. You're in for a rude awakening.
You mean to tell me you don't know the difference between an American flag and the UK flag?
