i don't think that has any relevance to if you're a fan or not. Some people are die-hard fans but just cannot go to games 41 times a year.

I'm not talking about specialized "firms", but casual fans that sell like 25% of their tickets on e-bay.

Last night, I was driving back to Gatineau from a hockey practice (Longueuil), it was around 1: 30 AM. I was listening to CKAC, and they had one caller who admitted being one of the "leaders" of the rioters. He went on about what he called justified thrashing of police cars and businesses. He said that nobody got hurt or die, so it was acceptable. And added that businesses are run by hypocrits because they made money with the "free advertisement" they received from the press coverage (he mentionned Foot locker). He added that the businesses have insurances, so there's no problem there.

During the conversation, the guy sounded ABSOLUTELY in full control of himself.

It scared me, really. I had chills to think that some human beings around me think like psychopaths.

I love that argument. It's not like the bill doesn't come down to the consumer down the line, one way or another, when insurance company pay...

Of course this is classless, I don't think anyone could argue otherwise.

I just personally find it ridiculous how fans of other teams (particularly Bruins and Sens fans) go out of their way to generalize an entire fanbase over what a (very vocal) minority does at a game, or after games.

It doesn't, it goes to the store owner who's trying to make a decent living but has to pay the additional premium on his insurance.

These guys who did it are sad pathetic jokes.

When fans get upset by a total non-issue like this, you know the NHL has gone too far in its Disneyfication.

They shouldn't, but its easy to understand why someone would do it. People shouldn't do a lot of things in life, but emotions control everything.

Yeah its too bad the Montreal fans are fuelling the fire for the rest of the Canadian media to bash the craap out of us. It happens everywhere but now Montreal is singled out, and everyone is envious of this team.

I've used, 'must have been raised by wolverines' on hf before but I don't know where I got it. I couldn't have made it up, I wouldn't know a wolverine if it was chewing off my arm.

True, but how does the store owner pay for the additional premiums on their insurance? Raising prices on their products, which....dum dum dum...effects the consumer.

I know... If you look at the thread, like 97% of us agree that it was a stupid thing to do but the Sens and Bruins will sort out ONE post and quote it on their board saying ALL HABS FANS are classless that like too throw beer on players.

When a Habs is almost killed from Bruins fan at Boston or getting peed on, thats because we deserve it and they are right to do that. Anyways, im not saying our fan base is classier than their but the generalizing thing is getting ridiculous.

Probably anybody you or I would know. Good, respectable parents. (although not in every case I'm sure)

Kids against the establishment isn't exactly a new phenomenon.

before you go down that road.....do not exclude any fan base here from not doing the same.

It is unfortunately common to every board.
