We passed one of the two Pens fans in question, in handcuffs, talking to the cops, on our way out of the arena after the game. I only saw half of what went on, since we were on the other end of the ice from 305, but given the fact the Pens fan was the only one we saw in handcuffs, I kinda suspect he wasn't exactly an innocent bystander that got ganged up on by a bunch of a-hole Rangers fans.

Amazing


Back to the topic, I would never get in a physical confrontation. With the price of tickets, anyone who does, unless they are provoked or have a friend or family member involved, is just idiotic.

However, if you wear Pens stuff into the Garden, especially in the atmosphere like Game 4, sorry but you're going to get stuff yelled at you. I'd expect the same for Rangers fans going into the Igloo. If it's a kid, I don't agree with it obviously, but any adults wearing Pens stuff need to expect it.

The most i've ever done of heckling at the garden was after game 6 last year i was pretty inebriated and very angry and upset...so i cornered a guy wearing a Drury Sabres jersey and intensely told him "YOU SEE THAT JERSEY? THAT GUY WILL BE WEARING BLUE NEXT SEASON!" the guy laughed hysterically and I walked away...

by god I was right!!!

Last night, around the vicinity of 305/306, there were Rangers fans yelling at a Penguins fan and then one pushed him so hard that he fell back. I don't know if he would have gotten back up if it wasn't for his backpack. Things got heated and the Penguins fan ran (up the stairs) back after the Rangers fan that pushed him. The next thing that happened made me wish that I wasn't a Rangers fan (at that moment), the Rangers fan pushed his guy down the stairs. I swear I saw him flip down and hit the barrier into row A of that section.

I understand that we are fans who support a different team but when did we stop being humans. When is it ok to hit someone because they are not supportive of your choosing?

I've been heckled, booed and I admit to have verbal confrontations with opposing fans but it's always in their arena and they said some racist stuff about me. Not once will I let a verbal confrontation get physical.

It was terrifying watching that Penguins fan fall down the stairs. What if he had died? How do you justify killing someone over a hockey game? Lastly, when did someone people decide that opposing hockey fans are human beings that don't deserve the same respect as the home team fans?
First playoff game at the Garden?

Out of all the arenas I've been to, the Garden and the Meadowlands have the most hostile crowds. 'Course, it's not so bad in the Meadowlands, as even if an arena-wide riot broke out, you'd only have to worry about 10 -15 people

I always figured this was due to NYC's massive population. You're a lot more likely to run into a jerk there than, say, Ticonderoga (Port Henry's a different story )

Intresting thread...


I will say this, when you are a fan of the visting team don't act like a jerk, remember where you are and be respectful. Having said that, it doesn't give the home team fans the right to toss things at you or take things from you. I'm all for good natured trash talk, but for it to get violent is just sad.

I have seen plenty of idiots at the coliseum (from both fanbases) when it's Isles vs Rangers, when I was a kid my father wouldn't bring me.

It's pretty sad that one cannot go to any sporting event (as it happens in all sports) and not worry about the idiot next to you...

Ive been to around 45 games (including playoffs) the past 3 years and can not remember fights during the game like this.

With the amt. of beer these guys drink, its surprising it happens so rarely.

I just assumed the Pens fans did something to start a fight. Not that they deserve it, but they instigated it.

If you go there and just sit and watch the hockey game (including cheering for your team) and dont do anything stupid, no one will bother you for the most part.

There was a group of Pens fans in the section behind me and no one bothered them.

I saw 3 Pens fans being taken away: kid in Pens jersey and back pack, kid in Lemieux jersey, and kid in a Bettis jersey. The kid with the back pack retaliated for something. The other two, I'm not sure they did anything.

I think it's tough for away fans to attend games, depending on where they're going. Once the guys in the Lemieux and Bettis jerseys sat down in there seats, they were getting heckled. They even tried talking to the Ranger fans and getting along with them just to prevent anything happening. Yet they were kicked out.

Once you're wearing opposing colors, you're at a disadvantage. And unless security is there to see everything that happened, the away fan is the one to get the blame first. Saw it at Shea versus the Phillies.

Didnt see the fights, but on the way out anyone in a Pens jersey was getting heckled pretty badly. Have no problem with saying whatever to opposing fans, but you have to be an idiot/too tanked to let it come to blows.

I have a pretty loud mouth when it comes to games.. During the regular season.. Was at a penguins game in Section 68... Me and him went back and forth the whole time.. Just trash talk.. End of game.. He shook my hand and said good game.. Thursday night.. same guy was there.. we went through the same thing and we were all good to go.. If somebody hit me.. It would be game on.. But as far as words are concerned in sports.. it is all good fun..

Some people can dish it and take it...others take it personally. Throw some beer in the mix and these unfortunate things happen.

One of my friend's father was stabbed in the parking lot after a Giants game in the early 80's over an argument.

I've seen Rangers fans threaten to kill opposing fans. I've seen Rangers fans yell out curse after curse at people who did nothing besides wear the "wrong" jersey". Makes it tough to bring a young kid to a game unless you want them to grow up aholes, too.

People are throwing quarters at a guy's head who is minding his own business, and your brilliant solution is to try and fight a whole section and call someone a crybaby for talking to what is supposedly security. Another person who doesn't get it.
