The booing had nothing to do with Staal. It was first a home crowd reaction against the penalty and secondly, it became louder, when Edler was brought out of the penalty box and out of the game.
Now, if you did pay attention you would have noticed that first of all the booing went down once people realized it was bad, secondly the crowed cheered him when he got helped off the ice.
I guess the problem might have been that the booing/cheering went up and down but I think it was pretty damn obvious that no one was booing an injured player.
You speak for 10000+ fans, he wasn't bashing your nationality. He was commenting on a negative reaction when clearly there was a severly injured player, I thought it was distasteful as well, although european crowds are generally fairly rowdy...which I typically don't have an issue with. But don't expect us to believe that you know the intention/mood of the fans in that game.
