This is a business of entertainment. For the same reasons we bring in posters, horns, chant and clap, play top-40 music in the background, fire cannons when a goal is scored, etc., is the same reason we boo and cheer. These hockey players aren't doctors or policeman, they're athletic clowns for our amusement. We boo stand-up comedians off stage, or give actors bad reviews, for the same reason we boo players that suck.

I wouldn't make it any more complicated than it needs to be.

Haha, love it.

Booing your own team is kinda like your parents giving you **** when you screwed up. I have no problem with it.

As for booing Dion, I wouldn't do it. I understand why people would, they might feel he "wronged" us in some way. I don't think he did.
