Use the tear gas...use the rubber bullets...the people standing around are just as GUILTY as the people fighting. We look like losers.....

I challenge anyone sitting at home and seeing these idiots to name them.. Do you realise there are people all over the world choking on volcano ash, flooded out of their homes, lost their loved ones for untold reasons, tornadoes destroying lives.. are you seriously taking a game this serious.. disapointing yes.. life altering NO .... get real people.. protest on something important.. soo upsetting.. is life so trivial ???
by ellen6/16/2011 4:46:36 AM
And somehow tomorrow, all this will be the police's fault...it's always the same. Social media is the difference this time, so many now trying to get video so they can post it...on our way to hell in a hand basket....
by Roderic6/16/2011 4:46:37 AM
After every game ...the police allowed these crowds to converge ...what do they expect ...they never had control ...were they living on a hope and prayer that we would win ....and the crowd would behave ....it's the vault of The City and The Police
by Suzie6/16/2011 4:46:38 AM
yes its sad that people have to be so destructive in they're own city, and they say prince george is the worst city in canada at least we don't light fires and riot when one of our sports teams loses. and those who say its the visitors that are doing it think again, anyone going or staying in vancouver knows its very expensive and the people staying with friends in van that are rioting i bet there friend from van is not stopping them. thanks vancouver for making the #1 redneck city in canada list.
by mr.pg6/16/2011 4:46:39 AM
@yulst Vancouver Police have cleared a two block area using riot equipment, horses and dogs.

by athabasca6/16/2011 4:46:48 AM
Canuck fans thought would not act like this. Sorry to see us lose to the Bruins however Canucks did their best. Watch the city taxes go up and this is a disgrace to Vancouver and the Canucks.
by Judith Knight6/16/2011 4:46:49 AM
This is sooo sad! I am embarrassed as a Vancouverite, and just want the world to know that this is not the majority of Vancouver just some drunken idiots!!
by Margot6/16/2011 4:46:51 AM

by Judith Knight6/16/2011 4:46:56 AM

by disgusted6/16/2011 4:46:56 AM

by Judith6/16/2011 4:47:00 AM
Im sorry to see our fans riot.
by C laarz6/16/2011 4:47:01 AM
So as a Vancouver transplant I have come to love this city....the Olympics last year was amazing to see the perfect example of good sportsmanship...tonight however is a complete embarrassment for Vancouver and for Canada...this absurd behavior has over powered what tonight is really about...so any Bruin fan and the Bruins team i i i would like to congratulate you on a great series and winning the Stanley Cup!!!!
by JR6/16/2011 4:47:02 AM

by OrangeSamurai6/16/2011 4:47:08 AM
by bob6/16/2011 4:47:09 AM
ok here is a point..if your going to riot the do sofor a good reason like the government forcing the HST down our throught`s or perhaps how harper slaps voters in the face by electing people who were not elected by the people...or something unjust..not over a game..we can always sell the canucks..
by reason to riot6/16/2011 4:47:10 AM
CTV News just mentioned the hotel the Bruins are stying in ....why?
by Concerned6/16/2011 4:47:12 AM
This is embarassing
by Judith6/16/2011 4:47:13 AM
vancouver+stanelycup=redneck losers breaking stuff, how about you guys doing this go play hockey instead of watching
by mr.pg6/16/2011 4:47:14 AM
I am so disgusted as a Cdn that this happening, where are these people from where did the fans go, I am disappointed in the loss but sportsmanship, the bruins where a better team and the was obvious from the drop of the puck, i will never watch hockey again and that is because of the fans not the team

by the way...globsl over reacts
by reason to riot6/16/2011 4:47:21 AM
Not only we lost the game; we lost the respect....
by CG6/16/2011 4:47:21 AM
This breaks my heart! It is so dissappointing to see the disgraceful behaviour of these young people. I can't understand what is behind this - but unfortunatly the public viewing areas may have been a huge mistake. I am digusted by the actions of these hooligans and give so much credit to our first responders, may they be safe.
by Ali6/16/2011 4:47:22 AM
what respect I had for the fans of the Canucks is now gone. Not the ones with kids or the ones who stayed in Rogers Arena, applauding their Canucks but most of all the Boston Bruins. To me that showed class of these particular fans. As for the ones outside involved in the rioting........ what can I say?? pathetic ignorant and classless people. The majority of them young people, fueled by alcohol, and by all looks of their behaviour tonight, will never will amount to anything in life. Such a sad display too show the rest of Canada. Maybe NHL should look into never letting thee city host another playoff game again. Sad sad people ... bet your so proud of yourselves now. Something you can tell your grandkids huh??
by milwaukeeiron6/16/2011 4:47:24 AM
Come to your senses people! This type of behaviour is not going to accomplish anything, nor is it going to get the cup back. Grow up!
by Karen6/16/2011 4:47:26 AM
Thanks to the mayor of Vancouvr and his council for packing thousands of people in one area. You did not do much thinking .
by disgusted6/16/2011 4:47:27 AM
can't watch this anymore. God help us.
by ladner girl6/16/2011 4:47:31 AM

by Dissapointed fan...6/16/2011 4:47:38 AM
I was born and raised in Vancouver and at the sight of this riot I am horrified. Seems mostly younger people. I do feel alot of embarassment. What happened to the Vancouver I once knew.
