It is always terrible to see this sort of thing. The Stanley cup is Not a Canadian birthright, Eh.

My first thought upon reading the article was,“For Pete’s sake, it is only a game”. But on reflection, those Canuck fanáticos in Vancouver (applicable to all sport fans) must live vicariously through the team and how it performs. So losing the Stanley Cup just pushed them off the deep-end.

Still think it was just a game.

This kind of thing happens everywhere here in the U.S. with sports fans. Jeez, LA riots even when their team WINS. It's nothing new.

I was, however, a bit surprised because I didn't exepect Canadians to act American. They seem to have more class.

I'm sure that it's just some bad apples that probably aren't even big Canuck fans, but just show up wherever they can find an excuse to loot and destroy stuff. Idiots will always be idiots no matter where they live.

150 people injured in the Vancouver riots. I already knew that Canucks fans were idiots and now this just confirms it even more. Out of all the Van fans I have talked to, I have yet to come across ONE that isn't a total fucking d0uche bag. I hope to g0d that they fold and relocate before they ever win a cup, and I'm Canadian too.

You show me it and I'll sign it. I know every fanbase has their share of idiots but 150 people killed rioting over a sporting event? What a bunch of f@cking d0uche bags....I knew it before the riots, and that just confirms it even more.
