They will riot for less important things.

Riot at Guns 'n Roses concert

*edit*

But yeah, if they win the cup, that city is going to burn down. Almost 20 years since their last cup, I'd be alright with them rioting.

this is hardly a riot. You want to see a riot? LA riots. People killing eachother in the streets in cold blood and burning their own neighborhoods down.

You can't let a few bad apples tarnish the entire city/team. If you are going to do that, then I guess blame the entire black race and dislike them for starting the LA riots back in 92.

I stand by what I said and it was simply a bunch of idiots taking over a situation. The cops were all too busy shooting tear gas into the crowd and couldn't have an eye on the stores the got smashed into.

Imagine if these idiots win the Cup.

Rioting after a 2nd round win? Shows you what their franchise has sunk to.

Maybe it's a good thing that they've sucked for the last 15 years, or else we'd see more riots in Montreal.


A second round win for a team who were suppose to be eliminated (with ease) by the caps, and then by the pens as well. This team has already won two stanley cups(at least in it's fan's eyes) by eliminating the only two worthy seeds in the East.

Both my old man, and my younger brother are habs fans... while they of course want their team to advance to the SCF, beating both the caps and the pens has pretty much made this a winning season/post-season.




Side note: any Canadian who doesn't acknowledge Quebec as being a part of this great country, is not a true Canadian.

Sadly, I am not shocked by this. Not the first time we've heard of rioting in Montreal I think. And as much as I dislike thou shalt not be named, burning images of him? Come on......

Haven't these people ever heard of just celebrating out with the guys over a few beers?

Go live in Quebec and see if you have the same thoughts after living there! They don't consider themselves as a part of our great country so why should we?

On another side note... wait until the winner of the Eastern Conference (doesn't matter who it is) meets the winner of the Western Conference (doesn't matter who it is either) because I have a feeling the Western team will destroy the Eastern without too much trouble! Remove Halak's miraculous performance from Montreal's current play off run and they are swept in the 1st round!

I love their team but cannot stand their fans.

It's one thing to be happy. It's quite another to do what they did.

Some people may not agree with the rioting,but those fans are some of the most passionate fans in the NHL.

Habs fans in Montreal are absolutely nuts. This is normal behavior for them and it does not surprise me at all. Good for them :) Anyone know how many police cars got burned and/or flipped this time?

Atleast their fans care about the team, showing interest and emotion... which can't be said about 90% of the american nhl teams

Hockey victory = excuse to steal booze and sneakers.

Disgraceful behavior. :thumbdown:


I suspect it was more about criminals wanting an excuse to steal things and break stuff and less about real hockey fans...

Off topic a bit here, but I wonder what would happen if these clowns were to burn down the Bell Centre (or at least do enough damage to render it useless for several plus weeks)...Where would they play?

I actually have lived in Quebec (though I was too young to remember it now), and have visited many, many times (including Montreal, and even some smaller, more french speaking towns). Truth is, there are some who treat anyone who speaks english poorly, but to gerealize an entire province over a few is ridiculous. I live in Ontario, have have for almost 30 years now... and I can tell you that the prejudice you feel when you speak english in Quebec, the French feel when they speak french in Ontario.

Side note: I agree with your side note 100%.

But really, lets wait for the Cup Habs fans for the celebration. Realize these are huge wins and all but there could be better things to come. But hard to find anything better than a ripped up burned picture of Skid Mark. Shows how they really felt about him winning that Gold for them.

I'm not a prejudiced person generally, but what is wrong with French people? Whether you are in French Canada or France, it's like you're automatically programmed to riot.

I,personally,think they have a legit shot at the cup.People that i talk to still don't give them any credit,but that team has chemistry.If they win the cup,that entire province will be burnt down.

What pisses me off is that Detroit still is the butt end of jokes about rioting after playoff victories. Nothing really bad has happened here since the 1984 Tigers. Since then Dallas, Denver, Montreal, LA, Boston have made huge asses of themselves but we are the city with the bad rep.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
