Who gives a sh!t. We booed Giguere and we would have booed the Ducks if we lost to them as well. They didn't boo the whole cup presentation or celebration, they mainly booed kane and dustin byfuglien. I don't blame them one bit for booing byfuglien, if anything that jackass deserved to have sh!t thrown at him.


No ya see this is different. Fans were not booing Giguere... he had an awesome playoff worthy of Conn Smythe honors but everyone believed that Brodeur deserved it more. They were booing the decision made by the hockey writers to pick Giguere over Brodeur. Media types spun it as the fans were booing Giguere because they despise NJ. No one wants to see NJ win a cup.

NO ONE on the Flyers was worthy of Conn Smythe honors for thier playoff run more then Toews. They were booing out of spite, nothing more.

If the SCFs was NJ vs. Chicago and the Blackhawks had won the Cup at the Rock, considering the current makeup of our fanbase, I think we would've had a vocal minority of fans booing during portions of the celebration too. And then gradually courtesy cheers would've drowned out the boos. ... Much the same way it happened last night in Philly.

Well there were two other differences...one that Giguere won it on the losing team (after a mediocre finals), Toews got it on the winning team. Plus the neverending Disney/ABC/ESPN Giguere hype ticked us off the whole series regardless.

I don't know why people are so interested in sticking up for Philly fans anyway, because they happened to not be sub-human last night? Big deal, they had one of the best runs by a team ever, there was no way even they weren't going to be slightly magnanimous in the end.

JS Giguere was booed loudly at the old Byrne in 2003 during the Conn Symthe presentation. The boos only died down after the crowd began to chant "MARTY'S BETTER!" I remember that game like it was yesterday.

The fans booed because even though Giguere had an amazing run to get to the Finals, Marty had a Finals performance for the ages. 3 shutouts including a Game 7 blanking. There is nothing like a Game 7 and to have Marty shut Anaheim out to win the Dev's third Cup, truly remarkable. Brodeur also suffered as the Conn Symthe votes were split between several Devils including Stevens, Niedermayer, Friesen, etc.

Philly fans are the worst in sports. Always have been, always will be. Hence the term, Philthydelphia.
