Almost forgot about the '93 riot after we won the cup. Wonder if the 15 year drought smartened up the fans should we win it this year.

It hasn't smartened anyone up.... it'll only be worse this time....

Its sad too, cause a bunch of idiots will destroy the character of the millions of good people in the city... Kinda like a supersized, superenhanced (tons more damage) version of HFboards.

That was actually a few months before I came to canada

What's funny is that my sister was there and saw the riot from her car. What's even funnier is that at around 1:32 of the video you see a Mercury Topaz that looks EXACTLY like hers, and I know she was already using that car at the time. Obviously it may not be the same car because it's a famous brand and all and there may have been several identical cars around the forum, but it could very well be her sitting inside there and looking at everything in sheer horror

I'll show her the video and she'll probably freak out, hahaha

Compare, a pic of her car the way it looks today and a screen from that YT video. Same car? Maybe...

This is true. Going 15 years without a cup is like being in exile, when you come back you're gonna be pissed as **** and looking for revenge. Downtown Montreal will feel the brunt of that revenge.

Have you noticed that policeman patrolling the streets in Montreal have gotten physically bigger in the last 15 years? Even girl cops look like trucks. I wonder if there are statistics to back this up, but clearly policemen are better trained physically for the job nowadays.

Anyways, my point is: remember Le Sommet des Amériques a couple of years ago? The police won't just sit there and wait for hell to break loose. They're probably drafting a plan right now and if the Habs ever make it to the finals, the area surrounding the Bell Center will be a highly and aggressively monitored police zone.

Its not only the bell centre area that will need security.
The entire downtown area is gonna be going insane.

Obviously the worst will be Ste-Catherine and Crecent but dont count out the rest of Ste Catherine.

I want it to happen, but im really scared to see the aftermath.

the police can plan all they want, its still gonna get out of hand..and fast!

Well thats true... sometimes sheer numbers can overwhelm the police, nomatter how big they are; and how well they plan..... Mass humanity acting like retards usually causes a lot of damage.

I'd rather have a riot and a cup than no riot and no cup, it's a small price to pay IMO

Good for you. I don't understand where the BS notion came from that you need to be destructive to celebrate the Cup. If & when the Habs win, I would love to see a massive, massive all-night celebration without windows getting smashed, cars being vandalized or stores looted.

The '86 and '93 riots = bush league behaviour by bush league people. The city deserves better.

hundreds of thousands of drunk people in montreal = a garanteed riot alot of it has to do with just how bad the police are at crowd control they have very little experience with it in montreal

While I agree that the cops should be prepared for the worst, I can tell you that there have been lots of drunken Cup celebrations in Montreal before '86 and '93, without vandalism or violence. Behaviour starts with the people, not the cops.
