Just because Vancouver has an abundance of people who prefer to watch a game in awkward silence, does not mean that it is the accepted norm. In fact in the world of sports it is the exception, and the reputation of terrible crowds in Vancouver reflect this. Don't mistake your own opinion for objectivity.
Why should the accepted norm in "the world of sports" be considered "objective" but not the accepted norm in Vancouver?
