Per wikipedia: Violence in sports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In June 2000, Los Angeles Lakers fans stormed the streets of Los Angeles after the Lakers victory over the Indiana Pacers in the 2000 NBA Finals. Fans briefly celebrated by starting bonfires, but it soon turned into a riot, with fans dancing and stomping on parked cars, and even turning a news van over.
In October 2004, fans of the Boston Red Sox rioted just outside of Fenway Park after the Red Sox won the American League Championship Series over the New York Yankees. Police used "pepper guns" in some cases and an Emerson College student, Victoria Snelgrove, was killed by a pepper filled paintball-like projectile which hit her in the eye.
The 2011 Vancouver Stanley Cup riot immediately followed the loss of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team to the Boston Bruins in the deciding Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in June of that year.
What say we ALL get off our high horse...
All due to respect to you man, and some of the good Bruin fans out there; But based off my experience with Boston fans in the 4 major sports, there are just too many fans still acting like the Confederacy is still intact and find it acceptable for the N word to be liberally thrown around like it's nothing. I know you aren't like that, and I know our fan base isn't perfect either, but it's tough to listen to how racist the culture can be over there.
