Love it or hate it, it's better entertainment than ____ (silence). Winning or losing has less influence than you make, atmosphere is a cultural thing...
The fans didn't start booing the Leafs last game. They've been booed several times this season, and have been regularly booed during big losses for the past few years. I don't think you follow Leafs hockey, and its obvious your opinion is based on some preconceived notions rather than actual observation.
"Culture"? Yeah, you're right. We're all up-tight WASPs here. Jeez, are you still stuck in the 1950s?
