Teasing me yes, but I am sure you guys arent the only ones, I just wanted to Point out that it happens everywhere, and being a hippocrit is childish, just like rioting. it was really only A handfull of people that went there to start a Riot wether we won the game or not! everyone just followed along, I mean 120,000 drunk 17-30 year old's, I blame it on the Police force, this happened in 1994 and they say they werent prepared, like common wheres your head at...

Somebody is a bit over sensitive.

Not to defend RIOTING, but the vast majority of those you've listed are for political or social unrest.

Comparing those to drunken fans rioting over losing a stupid game is ridiculous.

And just for clarity sake, it's ridiculous (and mock worthy) ANY time a bunch of idiots incite a riot based on a game, or concert, or whatever superficial event spurs it.

Like I said, it was not the Fan's, People (Anarchist's) went there with the Intention to Start a Riot wether Canuck's won or lost, they came with bandana's Gasoline crowbars, and everyone else just stood around cheering, and eventualy other people joined in, sort of thinking its a free ticket to be bad, but they are all on Camera, I think it is Ridiculas, Riot's are stupid, but the people that came the next day to Clean up are to be Comended, Real Fan;s dont Riot, it is a black eye, but really it wouldnt have happened if the handfull of Anarchists didnt start it!

Fair enough, I understand the importance of it, and didn't mean to diminish it's standing.

I feel the same about the Lombardi Trophy, but egads, I'd never riot over it.
