Aren't MTL fans supposed be fans of his because he's from Nova Scotia or something like that? Of course, I mean, if this isn't the playoffs.
I think some folks are losing a bit of perspective on this whole photo of Crosby being burned.
What exactly happened there? All I know is that lots of Habs fans rioted and a butt load got arrested.
My guess? Some fan, probably some dude in his 20's, blew up a photo or grabbed a poster of Sid and it made it's way onto the bonfire. And yes, it made for an opportune photo.
Do I think for a split second that it was an anti-Crosby rally of some kind, with fans hanging 87 dolls in effigy and carrying protester signs related to 87? Or do I think it was just drunken, ecstatic Habs fans being stupid and that it had less to do with Crosby per say, than simply beating your opponent? I'm thinking the latter.
