Toronto is generally a safe place to wear wings gear (I've never been asked to fight anyways) to see a game but two years ago now I was crossing the street and a cop used his PA in his car to tell me the Wings are '***'. Surprised me that a police officer would slander a team with a word like '***'.
i went to the game in toronto during the hall of fame weekend and was met with the most insanely stupid heckling i've ever heard in my life.
leaf fan #1: wings SUCK!
me: do you even remember 1967?
LF1: ... they suck!
me: what? i asked if you remembere--
LF1: yeah, well you suck cock!
then, i will regret, for the rest of my life, not recording this guy:
leaf fan #2: hey! wings SUCK! trade osgood for a bag of pucks! your organization is a JOKE!
me: you clearly do not ha--
LF2: YEAH, WALK AWAY *GIGGLE!!*
i wish i could watch this over and over again; the audacity it takes for a leaf fan to call our organization a joke is just so immense.
yeah, toronto's got a rich hockey history, but it probably contains the league's collection of the top three dumbest fans. for the record, i was born and raised in toronto, so i am very, very familiar with the amount of stupidity that goes on here. of course, every sports team does have its group of idiot fans...
nothing like uneducated and opinionated reprobates at a hockey game.
