    I was in Portland in 1977 when the Trail Blazers won the NBA title and their was bedlam in down town Portland and they won.

    .In late 1977 I moved to the Bay area the Raiders they had won the NFL title the year before were the focus of a bunch of gang types and they caused trouble on a regular basis.

    I was still in the Bay Area when a team I was a fan of finally won the Super Bowl. I was a big fan of Joe Montana before it was cool and in 1981 & 84 they won it all and don't remember any problems.
    I think that people who get involved in riots are week minded people who have serious mental problems and have no close relationships with other real people outside of the sports team.

    Opening Day of the Baseball season this year a man was beaten by gang bangers so badly he is still in a Coma to this day. All he did was wear a San Francisco Jersey to a Dodger Game.

    I don't think this guy will ever wake up.

    I believe that it will take the police opening fire on people in one of these riots before they will come to an end. Rioters cost millions in property damage and often get into looting and it ends when a store is empty.
    They acted the fool last November.

    It's dumb to try to turn this into a political thing. But you're supposed to riot when your team wins, not loses. When the Cubs win the World Series, I'm gonna loot to my heart's content.

    Well let's be honest. The series was theirs to win. You are up 2-0 and end up losing 4-3. That is pretty painful. And funny guy making jokes about the Cubs winning the World Series.

    They're liberal alright. And here is the undeniable, irrefutable, no doubt whatsoever, godless, shameless, liberal proof:

    Those two are closet conservatives. Note that they're not boinking in public!

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This has got to be about the dumbest generalization I've read on this board in quite some time.

    Please stop huffing glue. I know it makes you all giddy and I'm sure it feels great, but you're literally killing brain cells every time you do it.

    Maybe. Or maybe we begin to squash riots by catching these guys, fining them for the cost of dealing with them and, if they are unable to pay, boot them out of the country.
