I hope this thread finds the people who routinely disrespect the Canadian National Anthem every single season. Every year more boneheads join in heckling the anthem and screaming "YOU CAN HAVE IT" after the phrase "God keep our land". You are not only disrespecting Canada, the country that gave us our beloved sport, but you are also disrespecting half of our team and entire coaching staff.

 

Show some respect and shut your mouths.

 

...now don't get me started on "flyers swallow" :doh1:

If you think that's bad, you should hear what they do up in Canada when they sing the United States national anthem. That goes double in Montreal.

We are better than that. Also I have been to Montreal 4 times and never heard any heckling whatsoever. Maybe they save that for Bruin games, but we should be better than that.

There are always a few idiots in the crowd, it's not like the entire arena is yelling it.

 

I remember back in 2002 when the Islanders and Leafs fans were burning each others countries flags in the parking lots before the game. sh!t happens.

Half a section did it today, it was blatantly loud. Its just moronic to say these things when we have 7-9 Canadians on the team with Stevens, Barr, and Deboer on the bench. Completely distasteful in my opinion.

 

EDIT: saying another team does this or says this doesnt make these fans any better. I think we can be better than this.

Tip: thicker skin, develop some.

It's a sporting event, with drunk and rowdy fans. Why some of you get offended by the "you suck" chant or heckling of this-and-that is still beyond me.

It obviously doesn't bother the athletes, nor the coaches. They realize what's going on and why the jeers occur, and I suggest you guys try and do the same.

I never understood that.  I have NO affiliation with Canada, and I've only been there once but I sing both anthems when we play a Canadian team.  I actually like their anthem.

This crowd was not a rowdy drunk crowd at all on a 1pm game on Presidents Day, and it doesnt make it any less disrespectful if players or coaches dont care.

Care to give any examples?

Other than that one series between Montreal and Boston where the booing got a lot of attention I can't think of any other examples where there have been problems (for either anthem). 

I have been to dozens of junior games in Canada against US teams and it has never been an issue. As a Toronto Blue Jays fan, every home game features the American anthem and I've never heard booing when I was there or heard anyone bring it up as a problem.

Of course there are idiots everywhere unfortunately.

I had the extreme displeasure of having 4, 30-something former frat boys who spent the entire 2nd period bragging about how drunk they got and also comparing DUI arrests. I sh-t you not, stright up bragging about being arrested for DUI and how each got it reduced. Oh and one slept through the last 5 minutes of the 2nd, and then fell back asleep from 10 minutes left in regulation until just before the shootout.

 

unrelated to the stupidity which brought forth the original topic but i had to vent somewhere other than twitter

That happened in the Rock???? Well...not for nothing but this kind of thing never happened when we didn't sell out games. Are our new fans reformed flyer fans that moved here from North Philly or something? Very embarrassing.

A small contingent of fans have been doing this for the past three seasons but today a majority of a section did it, add that with the numerous hecklers during the entire anthem. Embarrassing.

I'm a big fan of both anthems, though as an American and serviceman the Star Spangled Banner naturally means a bit more to me. I wish crowds in the US sang our anthem with the enthusiasm Canadians seem to have for Oh Canada.

This used to be a big concern for international soccer matches when England played. Imagine a stadium holding 70-80,000 people and about 75% of them booing the oppositions national anthem. It was an embarrasment to say the least. I think for a while they had to literally tell the crowds not to boo each others anthems like children. I'd say if it is something that affects you then make it a point with one of the stewards or see if you can get in touch with security at the Rock. Fans need to police their own fans sometimes, no harm in doing that if it is for the greater good.

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

I'm not gonna lie, I've yelled this before, but I don't do it at every game against a Canadian team, mostly only against the Canadiens and Leafs. The reason for this is the just the sheer amount of bad experiences I've had with fans of those teams. I can't tell you how many games against Montreal I've been to where I've had Habs fans sitting around me who wouldn't even stand up for our anthem or text/talk during it or sit there on their hands talking during the "Hero of the Game". fvck 'em. I hope they get offended because that's what I'm going for. However, if I'm surrounded by Devils fans, you'll hear nothing from me. Personally, I didn't yell it yesterday but I'm not against people doing it and it's way less offensive than a lot of other things I've heard at games.

So you get offended by Habs fans disrespecting our anthem or country and you do the same thing? Thats the problem with our world in a nutshell on a small scale of course. Just be the better person.
