Can you help me out with what this broken glass incidence was? Sounds intriguing.
I live in NC and go to at least one game a season, and I was also at game 1 and game 7 in 2006. I didn't tail gate all day or hang out and get rowdy after game 7 (I can't afford being involved in drama in my line of work). I know bad things happened then, but nothing unusual compared to some big games in other cities like Montreal, Chicago, etc.
However, since then Canes fans have been at least equal partners in instigating drama, and their arena workers have been involved. There was a constant run of insulting jokes about Buffalo and it's fans on the scoreboard in every game from 2006-2010. It only got Sabres fans mad and added to a potentially volatile atmoshpere. I'm a pretty calm fan, but I had Canes fans berating me in a very obnoxious manner almost every game. Eventually the scoreboard insults faded away and the overall tone got better. The rep makes some Canes fans stay home or sell off their tix (to Sabres fans), but that's fine with me so I never have a problem getting a seat.
