Molatov cocktails? Doesn't that require a bit of preplanning? That doesn't sound like a spontaneous bit of mobbing to me..

Glad I stayed home... but then after the riots of '94 for the same thing, I never did think we deserved to have a team anyway.

Disgusting behavior by men with the least testosterone I have ever seen.

Most men in Vancouver walk around with tiny little dogs.

So how come the rioting?

They grew some balls from somewhere.

I dont understand why the police are being so calm about it. STEP in and show the world how to deal with a Vancouver Hockey fan. You have tasers and guns and sticks..USE THEM!!!!

Funny... Canadians riot over hockey but not that our government screws us over.

And we wonder why the world is falling apart...we are letting it. More people worry about hockey than our government.

Want to pass bills to make our lives worse? Sure, but don't let us lose the Stanley cup.

Now if we could only somehow get this many people to care about something that matters....

Very true.
If anybody complains of police brutality from this...I will have no pity!
At least fight over something that MATTERS, this is completely and utterly USELESS.

Why?? Why are people idiots and riot because of the loss of a game.
It's just a game! Things like this have to stop! All it does is prove that we need supervision by the police and government because we don't know how to behave ourselves.

Unhappy Vancouver Canucks fans are taking out their anger downtown at losing the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins in Game 7, flipping at least two cars and burning another in a burgeoning riot.

Stun granades are now being used....

COME ON use something a little more lethal against these people. My god damn car has been scratched up and dented.

Well company car but still...............


I think Vancouver police need to take a leaf out of the Chinese way of dealing with protesters.

I wanna see bodies hit the floor.

Some of the fans from Boston have been attacked. And seriously wounded over an ice skating tournament for butch girls!!

Had to share a tweet I saw on the subject.
"What's the deal? Tim Hortons run out of coffee or something?" haha sorry I couldn't help it.

Don't really know that much about any Canadian cultural "implications", but there's no need for you to feel in any way diminished. Much sincere respect to you. It was a great series, and thank you for the challenge!

Well we should all be grateful its only humans getting attacked and rioting.

What would of happened if the Canucks were playing a team of baby seals?

Me either. I hope the cops kick the crap out of these idiots. They are detrimental to society and with their biggest concern being hockey they only make things worse.

What pisses me off about sports is that these people that serve no purpose to the greater good and get paid millions upon millions of dollars, but, there are people working on something that will advance society and they have a hard time making ends meet. Our Scientists get nothing and our entertainers are paid very well, as I said before, we are idiots.

The only sport I watch is MMA, which to me is the only true sport. People call it barbaric, but, it's the oldest sport. Even then, it is becoming too big with too many idiot fans.

Vancouver has some of the craziest and strictest rule governing alcohol in the so called free world.

Infact its near on impossible to buy it anywhere beside government approved places. It shows how little the Canadian has to have to drink before they go nuts and start kicking off.

The rules in Vancouver are so strictly controlled and every thing is so monitored and restricted I just vant believe what I am seeing here. The police are not handling this too well. They are using kid gloves.

Im not from this village or from Canada but even these peace loving hippies can become violent at the turn of a screw.

But over a Ice skating final. Isn't Ice skating for girls? I mean it is not really a sport is it. In some places/Countries it is practiced as a Homosexual Martial Art!! or that is what I read

Lunatic rioteers plus lunatic policemen = a recipe of disaster.

For those of you interested in the significance of numbers.
The last riot in Vancouver over this very thing was 17 years almost to the day ago. Interesting.

ETA


Som Gosh, 16, said police blocked off the area and detained a number of people. "I think it was a few people. … Everybody else is watching," Gosh said. Some members of the crowd could be seen trying to hold back others. Others posed for pictures, while most wanted no part of the violence and headed in the opposite direction.


Yep, just what I thought. A couple of dumb idiots ruin it for everybody else.

Not really, a bottle of OJ, gas station and a couple bucks in your pocket. Instant riot.
Matches and a gas tank.

Sad.
Way to go, B.C. Let the world know you care more for hockey than binding taxes, and un necessary probing at airports. haha.

Just started watching the live coverage....because it happend so quickly...it does appear that some in the crowd were prepared. The crowd where the trouble started seemed to be college aged (mostly young guys). The current live coverage of the burning car is showing people posing for the pics. The crowd is behaving as if it were some over the top frat party. With many in the crowd mugging for the camera, it makes one wonder if they even understand that all that violence and destruction is real and not some video game?

Theres only 2 reasons why canadians riot.

reason 1: Hockey

reason 2: Beer

Never the less, be careful by calling name, there was a record crowd outside and by experience i can say it takes only 6-7 to start a riot and usualy they aren't local. btw calling Vancouver a hole is remarkably ignorant
