To me, getting riled up about Canadians and Americans booing each other's anthems is akin to flying off the handle when your brother steals a pencil.

It's a friggin' song and don't say, "our forefathers died for it," because we were all on the same freakin' side.

Agreed. Do people honestly get like deeply offended when an anthem gets booed? Do these people have lives?

I'd never boo an anthem myself or anything but geez it's a sporting event with loads of alcohol flowing and it's been happening since the dawn of time...yet people still get upset about it.

Anthems have no business in the NHL, only in international competition.

The NHL is largely responsible for the booings by keeping playing them.

/The End.

They don't play the Russian anthem for the Russian players.. Jesus.. It just doesn't make sense to play them anymore.

Since it was in retaliation to our supposed booing, it makes their booing heroic......anyway, everything in the US is heroic.....

Don't worry. We had plenty of examples of great class from some of our neighbors already....especially when Gainey and Timmins are booed in every city they go when they speak their 10 seconds of french in the entry drafts....

Judge not lest ye be judged, etc. You guys react pretty brutally when French-Canadian stereotypes start to appear, don't turn around and generalize a much more massive population.

Just like in the case of your fans, the anthem booing was, by most reports, overstated. From what I've heard, it was next to nothing.

Yeah, I thought that one was great. The booing stole their freedom, wasn't it in the Iconic Rage (Rocky) thread?

Anthems are important. They help keep stupid people in line and give them an ethical and moralistic identity. It's crowd control.

BOO

hockey shouldnt be about politics. i think its classless when anyone boos someone's anthem. i try not to judge fan bases too broadly, it was a small group on both sides that booed each other's anthems.

Aren't there Canadian and American players on both teams? So you're booing your own players...

I highly concurr with others that think the anthems should not be played before a game in the NHL. Major waste of time now since the teams are so full of very different players from so many countries..
