Addressing important issue - Boston fan

From a loyal Boston Bruins fan, I want to apologize to Caps fans for the absolutely disgusting behaviour and racism displayed by some of the pathetic people who claim to be "fans" of a team i love and a sport i love. I hope you all know true Boston fans don't think like these cavemen do. If anybody was going to score on the Bruins, i'd want it to be Joel Ward.

Good luck the rest of the series. (Ovi deserves a cup more than crybaby crosby)

You sir do not have to apologize for idiots.

I'm afraid shoe would be on the other foot if the Bruins had an African American score GM 7 OT GWG. Every fan base has racist idiots. Too bad, the last thing I even thought about was that Ward is black when he scored that goal. Shame.

It was on Twitter. The Bruins fans here have for the most part been gracious and respectful.

Opining that another poster's opinion is racist is going to end very badly for anyone who goes there from now on.

If somebody sees a post that is racist, do not respond to it - report it.

Sad and yet ironic that those involved, claiming to be fans of the Boston Bruins, yet it's obvious they don't know their own team's history. The Boston Bruins organization was responsible for allowing the first black to play in the NHL. Willie O'Ree, sometimes referred to as the Jackie Robinson of hockey, started his NHL career with the Burins in the 50's.

There were 67,000 racist tweets directed at Joel Ward last night. His response simply was that he was excited his team made it to the next round.

Done....

We know there are idiots everywhere, not just in Boston, and they don't represent the entire population.
