First "we" were never classless, a small number of yahoos in the Bell Centre were to blame. Anyone who generalizes a fan base or a City based on the conduct of a few mouth breathers at a hockey game, is a ****ing idiot.

The only thing proven last night at the Wachovia Centre was that Philly has it's share of knuckles draggers as well.

Actually, the Star Spangled Banner was written during the War of 1812 - when, as you probably know we were not on the same side...

Thank You!! People really need to stop generalizing everything. A few idiots booing doesn't make the entire fanbase for either team classless.

So the first time is okay, it's just the second time that is inappropriate? Your opinion of the situation will change significantly if the Philly fans boo the Canadian anthem tomorrow, since it is the second time they have done it?

I'm not sure how you are evaluating the principle of the action, so I'm genuinely interested in your reasoning as stated above.

What I don't get is, how does another teams fanbase doing the same exact thing our fans did make our fanbase all of the sudden less classless or not classless?

It is part of the conspiration. We go in other cities dressed has the city's hockey fans and boo the canadian anthem so we don't seem so classless. With the approbation of the league.

Booing an anthem is stupid but it says alot for the ignorance of the people doing.
Knowing that its not worth getting offended over no matter which country does it.
Lets not get all political or ethical here, its a hockey series and each side wants to gain an edge no matter what.

Sorry for posting, just had to express this opinion.
Agreed!

I did it? Thanks, I forgot.

The only time I look kind of ackward during the US anthem was when I wore my CCCP jersey and everyone was looking at me oddly... but that was more funny than anything.

I never understood why they even play the anthem at every game..
During the winter Olympics or any international hockey tournament id understand..
If the NHL was more international like Soccer, id get it as well.

But man, NHL is purely a North American thing. It has no meaning in hockey. Especially with only 6 canadian teams left.

Taking them out would take away all the crappy threads about booing an anthem.
Nobody would even noticed it.

I vote Get'em Out!.
