Sports fans today comprise a subculture with strong emphasis on the sub part. Pro Sports is the past time of shallow people. Just read the daily news.

it just amazes me how people can be so destructive over a win/lose situation. Really, trashing cars, and stabbing people because both teams played an awesome 7 games. Just because your team lost the last game, they still put up a great win 3 times before. It doesn't justify acting like animals or like other countries who have no respect for human life and property that people work hard for!! What is wrong with shutting off the television after the game and say to yourself, "oh well, maybe we can go all the way next year?" Both teams making it as far as they did is a great accomplishment, why would your tarnish the Vancouver Canucks name and destroy everything in site just because they lost the last game? Do you think they would do the same if you lost a game playing hockey? I doubt it very much!! Shame on your disgrace for your city and your lack of respect for other peoples property!! grow up and act like a responsible adult already, after all, it is just a game!!!! someone has to lose and someone has to win!!!

chill out!! I didn't say it didn't happen in our states either!! If you remember correctly we have had our share of destruction due to riots and selfishness!! Like Las Angeles, New Orleans!! Stop being so damn defensive!! I was sticking up for your country!! I was talking about third world countries who destroy their builings and kill innocent lives by rioting because of defending controlling political leaders!! maybe you should read my post again!! it is people like you that hold so many grudges that lash out and push your anger issues on everyone else!! where did I ever say it doesn't happen here????? again, i stress, it is just a game of sports that a chosen few play!! If they lose, because they did not score as many points as the other team--they don't go and destroy a city-- the fans who are dumb enough to take a game they don't play so serious that they have to destroy other peoples property and assult human lives OVER A GAME THEY DON'T EVEN PLAY!!!!!!!!!!
I certainly hope you were not one of those idiots involved in the riots?

I agree.. It is usually a few that bring bad publicity on many... which is sad in itself.
