That's charging...he left his feet...not that I am complaining.


His feet didn't leave the ground until after the point of contact. Clean hit, I say! ;)

That seems an inaccurate statement.

how do you know he wasn't one of them at the olympics? :emot-parrot:

seriously though, how many cars, in total, burned? because it might have just been 15 that were attributed to the anarchists.

naw, he left his feet on the follow through, but he did take three or more strides. :emot-parrot:


Colie campbell will probably say that's worth zero games.

Don Cherry will say that's a good hit, and then talk about how kids need to keep their heads up.

Dave pratt will be saying how hits like these need to be taken out of the game, in exchange for ballerina danceoffs.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

The guy was already retreating and he didn't even get a chance to defend himself. The guy who threw the knockout punch was no better than the rioters.

The guy in black is the same one who defended the car, looks like the one who got punched was also one of the people hitting it before? Either way, the guy in black is awesome.

The press across the continent vilified the Canucks as a dirty pack of goons. All this riot bull just reinforces that stereotype.

Yes, it was started by a small bunch of brain-dead thugs, but there were more than enough idiotic fans just waiting for the chance to jump in.

Maybe this city doesn't deserve a Stanley Cup. Maybe we don't even deserve a team.




Meh. Don't go too far down the rabbit hole on this.

Not to make light in any way of the lousy after party, but one Montrealer interviewed a few days ago (Montreal has seen a couple of hockey riots) shrugged their shoulders
and said something like 'this happens in a bigger hockey city...we wake up the next day, and everything's back to normal, and we go to work.'

Saw another celebrity (I think it was Jim Carey) who when asked about the riots, said (unquote) 'I think it was the disappointment...and the Molson Canadian.'

He*l yeah, you deserve a team, and maybe even a cup, and I live in Calgary. What happened has nothing to do with the Canucks franchise or dedicated ticket holders.

Who else are we going to have those kinds of games and rivalry with??? You guys replaced Edmonton for us as the battles incarnate.
I also think the 'Nucks are going to get a cup one of these days. He*l, the Caps were supposed to take it all last year, too, but that's playoff hockey.

i don't know if there's 2 cars, but there's one outside the VPD office at 2nd/Cambie that also has post-it notes on it: http://flic.kr/p/9UgCxX

That is the same car I saw downtown, I think. I'm guessing they simply decided to tow it to the station.

You know... I said this before elsewhere, but the response from this city is the absolute BEST I've ever seen from Vancouver. Other cities can think what they want, but they can't take away the positivity that's rampant on the streets right now.

I've tried my best to inform fellow Ducks fans about this "other" side of the story. Most of them know. Hopefully some non-Canucks fans in Vancouver can spread this image of positivity around their respective fan bases too.

Absolutely

I'm really proud of our city. After an incredibly emotional series and loss in game 7, combined with booze, drugs and hormones (not to mention anarchists), you could almost say it was surprising things didn't get more out of hand.

But the truly great thing is what happened afterwards. Thousands of people show up the next morning to clean up the mess, the thank you notes on the cop car, the board which people signed, even kids turning themselves in. THIS shows real maturity. Yes, WE as a city made a mistake, but we will take responsibility, and make amends.

Let the global media only report the bad side, who cares what the rest of the world thinks - the only important opinion is what we think, and like I said, I am proud of the way our city came together afterwards. That's what makes this the best city in the world.

these idiot vandals think they can get away with anything because there are barely any cops around. i don't like to see people get hurt, but hopefully this shows other morons that you better think twice before you start breaking stuff that isn't their property.
