All it takes is a few punks to turn a good time into this. I feel sorry for the driver whose cab got destroyed. I hope that the pics taken of these a**holes gets them arrested and they should have to pay damages !!!

Why do people have to behave this way? Can't they just enjoy the day? There is just no reason for such barbaric behavior. And notice its always kids? See what happens when you 'spare the rod'? Discipline is NOT abuse.

The whole thing is stupid and just a ploy to generate money for the city. Bloomberg was a fool to plan it on Super Tuesday. It shows what people's priorities are when a dumb football game is more important than voting for the presidency of our country. I'm thoroughly disgusted.

I thought the same thing. It is exciting that our home team won the Superbowl, but it is sad when that is a priority over voting for person who just might be the President of our country.

It's even worse that these few destroyed whatever dignity this parade may have had. I hope they all were all arrested and are made to pay for the damages to all of the destroyed cars and trucks.

We should take these kids and dump them in the Iraq desert for a week. They won't be animals when they return. They will be meek little rodents who will do whatever mommy and daddy tell them to.

There's more honor and integrity in a football game than in the "voting process" for the presidency of our country. At least the outcome of the game isn't preordained. ObaMcClintomney is running. Pick one, pick all. Have a say who gets to ride around in Air Force 1, spew redundant, empty rhetoric, and promote the status quo. Super Tuesday -- now that's a racket the entire country can embrace.

And most of these yahoos couldn’t care less about the Giants. They were just there because it was the place to be. Bunch of morons.

Story says estimate of MILLIONS in attendance.

Tremendous time, crowd made up of NY'ers, tourists from all over USA, and International.

Friendliest, happiest event in a long time.

Tiny percentage of idiots.

Amazing team, amazing crowd, still great City.

Congrats to all.

Yes it is unfortunate that there will always be those that spoil this type of event.

However, can someone explain why NYC wanted to pick up the big buck tab for this parade? A parade for a team that USED to play and practice here in this state. Or did I miss the Mayor's announcement that the state of NJ was going to at least split the bill for all the OT for the many city workers that were involved with this.

The city spends who knows how much money, while the state they play in, the state that gets revenues from the stadium built in NJ and named after the Giants, are smart enough to hold a rally at Giant Stadium.

And no, I am not a bitter football fan of some other team

How sad it was to watch the videos. And people wonder why out of towners give New York City such a bad rap. Well this just gives them more fuel for the fire!

Hey buddy, just because the Eagles were the ONLY team from the NFC East that didn't make the playoffs, doesn't mean you have to be bitter about it.

Almost the entire bill was picked up by sponsors like Toyota, etc. The overtime for Sanitation and NYPD is mostly being covered by sponsers as well.

You must be a Jets fan.

And not justifying these people's behavior, but anyone dumb enough to park their vehicle along the parade route isn't very bright to begin with.

The medallion number of that "taxi" at the beginning of the video is "2W85"...

That "taxi" was an actually an undercover police vehicle, as real taxis do not have the letter "W" in their medallion number!
