We are supposed to have freedom of speech in this country, so fans who pay through the nose are within their rights whether they boo Brisebois or the U.S. anthem. Booing a player who is having a good night, on the other hand, is plain silly."
Freedom of speech fine...Booing another Country's national anthem is disgusting. It's pathetic and absurd....I'm no pro-American , in fact I am mostly anti-American on a lot of issues but Booing a political position during a hockey game is absolutely out of place and demonstrates complete and utter stupidity

Freedom of Speech is about expressing ideas and dialogue for the purpose of bettering society. Don't hide behind Freedom of Speech to defend aggression or stupidity. If you are against the National anthem then write to your congressman and do it Democratically if you are so fond of the system that gives you your freedom of speech then maybe you should learn how to use it properly rather than abuse its advantages
