If anything, just for the PR aspect. It simply just doesn't look good.
Agreed. I don't think people are overreacting at all, even as a Canadian I find it pretty classless. I understand it was probably a simple mistake, but it still looks pretty bad IMO.

Yeah, the problem is we live in a media world of headlines and sound bites. In that context this story makes it look like Canadian gloating and rubbing it in.

The truth, as others have said, is that this was probably an accident and thus a non-story. Unfortunately though, sometimes perception is reality. We'll see how much play this even gets, though, seeing it on here was the first I'd heard of it.

Once again the Ottawa Senators organization makes a mess of things.

- 300 themed Fat Praetorian Playoff Introduction Fail

- Jumbotron of Habs logo falling off a boat & drowning during a game against the Habs just days after Gainey's daughter falls off a boat & drowns.

Now they are showing Canada Olympic highlights during US Anthem.

What is going on with their marketing & PR departments ?
They should really clean house & fir these idiots.

I hear they're planning on getting everyone to boo the American anthem at the next home game.

It was probably just a mistake. Still fail though.

Yay for classy Ottawa fans cheering good hockey, regardless of nationality.
