It wasn't exactly that quote, but they added the "respect & dignity" part for the first time tonight.

Seemed to work tonight.

It's not that people were booing during the Round 1 games, but there were a lot of "Go Habs Go" chants. Not as bad, but still disrespectful.

There were a little still, but it was much more subdued. Some boneheads always try but by the 1/2 way point it was pretty good tonight.

There were also little clips during commercial breaks - three different ones were played - Bouillon, Georges St-Pierre, and Komisarek spoke, respectively. This was about "celebrating joyfully but responsibly" or something to that effect.
