Sounds like something you'd expect out of philly fans...if they didn't have a black player

Like I said in the other thread, if you don't think this would have happened in the other 29 cities as well then you're kidding yourself.

Ugly as it is, I would say it shows Boston's idiotic side. I'm sure that there would be fans in every city who would have those thoughts if their team was in Boston's position. That's bad enough. But the fact that you broadcast it to the entire world on Twitter? It even looks like some of those morons actually have their picture displayed with the comments.

These people are in for a very rude awakening if they're ever on the end of some kind of discrimination lawsuit. They could even be fired by their employer for fear of something like that.

People never cease to amaze me.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

I'm sure in the Midwest or something. It's still mind boggling.

I know a lot of fans from other cities. Believe me, it wouldn't be just the midwest.

I'm not surprised. I've never understood the pass Boston fans get. People like to wax poetic about all the history their sports teams have had. They have as much of an ugly side and history as the Philly fans do.

This would exist in other cities (and certainly we'd have to translate in Montreal, but wow, it would be prevalent there), but to the extent that it did here, I don't think so. If you're comfortable saying this to Twitter, there's got to be a kind of comfort with it in general - I'm just not sure other places are like that. (Certainly there's an ugly racist side to the Devils fanbase that I won't pretend doesn't exist)

This might have happen in other cities, but it did happen in Boston and it's just disgusting. I've always said that we needed one more generation of people to die off to end this inner hatred, but maybe its another two or three.

It's sort of like reading this forum -- the world is filled with idiots. Don't let a few tards with an internet connection ruin your opinion of it.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe... Attack ships on fire off the shoulder
of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."
