Flyers/Devils, Game 7, Playoffs (just a scenario)

Devils score: *Cheers loudly*

Therien coughs up the game winner: *Claps happily*

Burke gives up the 6th of the game: *Smiles and acts jolly*

Unless you have no attachment to the team, and only love the game of hockey in itself, what else are you supposed to do when your team lets you down? Professional athletes aren't little children, "It's ok Burkie, you gave up five tonight, but you'll do better next time." Passion is a good thing, unless you're a fan of the Devils style of play. If you're solely talking about booing outside of the game of hockey, then ok, but if you're talking about booing anything and everything at games, it's justified. Nobody wants to shell out X-amount of dollars to be let down. We all know the booing will stop once our guys win something more than a presidents trophy.
