I'm sure there were some boos being shouted by a few fools, but it's hard to tell behind the national anthem itself. I think it was a GO HABS GO chant and not booing, at least this is what I was telling the buddies I was watching the game with.
It's a little funny and pretty disrespectful that rival fans immediately say that it was booing, a pretty brutal stereotype that gets put on the Montreal crowd. If it really was booing, I am almost positive that CBC and Don Cherry would have made a huge deal about it during the intermissions.
people want to hear boos so they can come here and ***** about it or find something to rally around like the Bruins fans did. out of 21,273 people theres always a few idiots booing but the vast majority are just chanting or making noise.
Honestly i dont care about Booing anthem or the States anymore..
They're overly annoying with their gay ''USA..USA..USA'' chant..this dumb ''patriotic'' chant in a freaking hockey game or any competitive sport.
It seems the States have become even more patriotic than before and have gotten dumber in the process.
Two wrongs do not make a right.
Remember Komi and Higgins are Americans. Make no sense to boo a nationality. Same for people booing the Canadian national anthem when half the players on their team are Canadians.
Good point indeed.
Very VERY VERY stupid, childish and juvenile what some sectors of the bell centre did last night...Shows complete lack of utter class and represents the city in a very poor light..very poor form. I was furious!
Did not appreciate the f you boston chants on the streets either...Some people need to grow up.
Okay.....we're playing an American team, so when the American anthem starts, idiots associate the playing of that anthem with the team we're playing against. So they are actually booing the opponent then the country, the president, their foreign policy or their position on same-sex marriage.
So people that are booing the anthem 'cause it's associated with our enemy are idiots. In Montreal, there are some idiots. We also had a proof of that after the game. We're not the perfect city faaaaar from it.
Now that this reality check has been done, can we go on?
