I don’t want the Canadian fans to have a reason to start aiming powferful projectors to the opposing team's hotel windows or pointing their flashlights to our players during a game.
By the way, I felt pretty safe wearing a Russian jersey when celebrating our victory in DT Calgary. I just wonder if the Canadian fans would enjoy the same feeling when wandering the streets of Ufa. Just remember that what goes around –comes around. From 2014 to 2021 we will have 4 WHJC in Canada and none in Russia.
Canadian fans are just way too nice to do anything untoward. North American fans in general outside of the northeast corridor of the US are generally nicer than Europeans who take the off field stuff waaaaay too seriously.
I think Canadians should feel safe in Ufa mainly because as an officially sanctioned event in Russia they will be given strong official protection.
I would sadly hesitate if I were a non white skinned person going to certain parts of Russia but fortunately Ufa has been relatively free of incidents.
