It shouldn't be taken as sign of disrespect but I get how it can be perceived that way. All fan bases have their idiosyncrasies and there isn't much we can do about it.
BTW : Zero chance there were more than a thousand or so Hawks fans.
The point was thousands of Jets fans booed and only 2 Hawks fans did stupid things(that we know of) so how was that taking it to another level?
Booing the opposing teams best seems to be a tradition in a lot of places,not just hockey rinks.Goes on in plenty of sports.No big deal.I dont see it as a sign of disrespect,quite the opposite in fact.Fans dont usually boo nobodies unless they have done something to warrant it,and I doubt it affected the targeted player(s) at all.
BTW There's a very good chance 80%+ of a crowd will boo at same time.Seen it on many occasions and been part of it a time or two.
