@linguo42: You know, I was wondering if the majority involved in the rioting were bandwagoners or just random people who decided it would fun to just watch the last game.
Darling Husband and I are big hockey fans (Go Kings Go! ), so we have been watching the entire series. Darling Husband commented at how classy the Vancouver fans were in the arena. I was so surprised to see what happened in the streets and immediately thought that it had to be fleeting “fans”.

You know, I’m going to say with some confidence and a lot of passion that the riots do not reflect at all on Canada, Vancouver, hockey fans, or even bandwagon-jumpers. Seriously. Why should normal people feel embarrassed? Those jerks don’t represent us or the beautiful game.

I think all of the rioting and looting was totally ridiculous and stupid! But, like some others have said, there is always a group of people who look for any excuse to make trouble. I honestly think it would have happened whether we lost or won. They just wanted an excuse. Just crazy!
I hope that with all the Facebook groups that have been started and the email address the police have set up, they will catch these people. There are so many photos of them committing crimes it’s ridiculous.
I was happy to see so many volunteers out there this morning cleaning up our beautiful city. I was also happy to see the Vancouver fans in Rogers Arena keeping it classy last night and staying to cheer for the Bruins.

Just goes to show that they have no common sense anymore. It is just a game but Canadians really HATE american sports! I know I’m a CAPS fan and we had it pretty bad when we lost last year to the Montreal team (WHOM I CAN”T STAND)! I’m Glad that Boston won! But I am sad that people have to resort to that type of violence at the end of the games. No sense for it at all!

@yearns4god: Canadians don’t hate American sports! Where the heck did you get that idea?
We watch NFL football, NBA basketball, baseball etc etc
I hope you are not referring to hockey as that is OUR national sport.
This riot did not involve hockey fans- it was started and caried out by professional agitators who used the hockey game as an excuse-likely the same bunch of losers who acted up at the Olympics.
Boston deserved the win. They outplayed the Canucks. We are not all sore losers.
