Hey, here's the attitude I was just posting about.

True, but you can't start swinging at them in a public or private setting.

I would put Devils but you have to have more than 5 fans to qualify.
Only a Yankees fan could put up that list. All non-fans of the Yankees would put them at the top or near the top of one of these lists.

If someone was booing it next to me, I would take some serious considering into stabbing them because that's just not cool. If I was at a canadian arena, if everyone was standing up for their anthem I would stand up too, if for no other reason, then to just not be a total *******. there's no reason for that kind of ****.
Wish you had been in my section when some Rangers fans were booing the Canadian national anthem to see if you would have reacted similarly. No one else did.

As for the rest of your comment, yeah there are many stupid fans in the fanbase and most are bipolar. It gets frustrating (for me at the very least) but some fans from other teams here (main board mainly) still make it hell for the whole fanbase due to a "select" retarded ones.

The bigger the fanbase gets, the more chances you get to have people act stupid.
We were missing just as much of our roster earlier in the year but still managed to continue to win. Whats your point?

Where were you sitting? I had Habs fans around me and didn't hear any of this.

The home opener, the guy behind me started to boo "O' Canada". I turned to him and said, "We don't need that!" Guy turned white and shut his mouth.

Just don't understand the booing of anthems. Our best Dman is Canadian, and the best Captain we ever had is Canadian.

Yesterday, I get to my seats at the new igloo and idiot behind me says, "Oh great a Rangers fan." He then says, "Well, at least I don't have to hear the Canadian National Anthem today." I looked at him and said, "The two best players your club has ever had are both Canadian." He had no response and was wearing a Crosby jersey.

I agree, I never understood booing anthems. Even if I don't sing it, it's simply disrespectful to boo any national anthem.

Besides, all Rangers fans should have to learn the Swedish national anthem and serenade Hank before games.
