    People need to grow up. It's just sports.

    I grew up in Buffalo. Wide Right? We had a freaking parade for the kicker. When Brett Hull's foot was in the crease and Dallas stole the Stanley Cup? Well, we bitched and moaned but there was no violence.

    it wasnt about hockey

    Some young adult men (generally) were prepared in advance to take advantage of large crowds and start some crap. More then a few showed up with gas masks, a sure sign they wanted to start something.

    You put those people in a large drunken crowd, and things can readily get out of control. It just happens that Vancover tends to attract more of the people who would want to start crap like this then most other Can cities

    Good gawd, we agree on something. It's almost as absurd as Vancouver winning the Stanley Cup.

    Yes, the riots were no doubt instigated by a bunch of thugs who had this planned in advance. Montreal has the same problem with hooliganism, where the same bunch are always looking for reasons to wreak havoc. What happened last night in Vancouver was not caused by regular fans/typical Vancouverites.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    For some good News, after the Mavericks won the NBA Championship sunday fans in Dallas celebrated peacefully. Today we had a parade and a banner raising in the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Over 200,000 people celebrated peacefully. There were fewer arest Sunday Night than on a normal night in Big D.

    Just heard on the car radio that the the city police, the province, and whatever police and politiciansyou have in this country are going to come down hard on these jerks. Some of them even posted their pictures on Facebook, bragging of what they've done. That's how stupid they are.

    There'll be jail time as they've embarrassed the city, the province and the country. And they'll be doing rough time for sure.

    That's the way it should have been here. In fact it was so peaceful among the tens of thousands of fans in the bars and on the streets during the series of playoffs that a local columnist predicted that police weren't even necessary.

    Ah, Karma is coming back and coming back with a hard tipped boot up their arses.
    They now have a facebook site that people can submit pics they took of the rioters and people are indentifying the rioters for police.
    Just when some of these morons thought they could get away with this due to the safety in numbers. But days later there is a knock on their door and there stands a Mountie. Ah, once again in this day and age people dont realize everything you do is probably being recorded.
