Something doesn't add up.... If the Southsiders were in the last rows... how was this guy behind them?

Families can't afford to go anyways! 4 tickets is anywhere from 600-800 dollars!

Isn't that often the case in these discussions though? "They weren't doing anyting wrong!!!" usually ends with "...but for swearing and dumping a beer on the person in front of them". Usually people's standard is what they will tolerate ("nothing wrong with being a bit loud and rowdy"). Standing all the time and yelling might be your way of enjoying the game and is "harmless fun" but it is really annoying for the person behind them who also paid good money to watch the game, not the back of someone's head. It's hard to strike a balance.

Yeah but someone blatantly said that they were standing the whole game and blocking their view.
How can they block the view if they are last row as no one would be behind them?

I have 2 questions.. Just curious, did the security tighten up after the riot or has it always been this way?
Sorry I don't actually live in Vancouver, who are the southsiders?
I haven't been to a live game since I was 7 in 92 but notice the terrible crowd every game on TV. It's almost embarrassing as a Canuck fan to be associated with the worst crowd in the league. I would love to see a big article written every year that ranks them all 1-30. Maybe it would open the eyes of gillis and co and embarrass them once they see they are ranked 30th in live hockey game experience.

If only we could all sneak in some vuvuzela's....
Next time this happens let's all of us go yell about it at The Bay. Maybe start some fires. No cameras.
Hah so true. Student season ticket prices are $199 for all home games. That's like what, 15, 17 games? That's much more worth it compared to one ticket to a Canucks game, which is almost the same price for one or two people.
For all that are annoyed with how quiet Rogers Arena is, save the money you would spend on your next couple of Canucks games and just get season tickets for the Whitecaps.

i dont think anyone has a problem with the singing or cheering chanting whatever you want to call it. but i know if my season tickets were behind them ( the southsiders were rows 13-15 in the bud zone so it is possible) i would be pretty annoyed. I certainly dont want to stand the whole game and if i take my dad who is in his late 70's he cant stand that long.
People pay a lot of money to see the canucks, not the back of some guys head or his scarf. Need to realize that just because you want to stand the whole game not everywhere else does or should have too as well. they are called "seats" for a reason.
But we do need to do something to get some atmosphere in the building and if that is by adding a standing/cheering section then great - but it needs to be designated like the whitecaps.

I was at the game tonight and i know its Been beaten with a dead horse but i just want to re-iterate how quiet and un-intimidating Rogers arena is! I had a friend from the EAST text me tonight who was watching the game on TSN and he asked if the weather has everyone feeling gloom and doom..
Im a season ticket holder and i lose my voice almost every other day for the Canucks when they are at home but I'll be the 1st to admitt that Rogers Arena is a morgue! Unless a goal is scored or "make some noise" is flashed up on the big screen the arena is dead silent!!!!!! WOW places like the Bell Centre in Montreal or MTS Centre in the Peg puts Vancouver to shame!!!!!
lol and the southsiders getting thrown out ! ahah what a joke!!!
Soooo many fair weathered yet over opinionated fans we have especially for a city that has won nothing!!!
By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov
Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

Your point is very rational if there were people behind them - however, as we can see in this picture, there was no one behind them in this situation:
Posted 13 February 2013 - 01:24 PM
Caller on TEAM 1040 just said he was directly behind them in section 301 and they were standing, waving scarves, and leaning over the railings. He was one of the people who asked the security to ask the Southsiders to move. He claims he couldn't see the ice at all because the Southsiders were holding scarves up the whole time.
Not sure what to make of that...
Pretty much this.
I think you need to be careful to consider both sides of the story here.
The Southsiders can be a pretty rowdy bunch. At the same time, GM Place can be a little quiet.

If you want to be a cheerleader, be a cheerleader. Good for you. But it's hockey. This is Canada. I think we know how to cheer at a hockey game, thank you very much.

I go to the games to watch hockey not to hear some idiots yelling, swearing or singing. I will jump up if we score and am on my phone at time due to work which some of us have to deal with. I leave early sometime cause I have to get up at 5am the next day regardless of how entertaining the game is and want to beat the rush. I am the lower bowel stereotype many of you talk about on the outside but I am an avid hockey fan and played at a pretty high level for many years.
I hate this let the real hockey fans in crap. The NHL is a for profit company. If your a real hockey fan fork over the money and if you can't then watch the game at home like a I did for many years. Those "suits" are the reason you have an NHL team. Does anyone think we could spend to the cap every year without them? I don't think so.
At the olympics I was sitting in front of JOE SAKIC's box did he cheer a single time though out the game? NO!!Was he on his phone at times? YESS!! During Canada vs Russia. Is he a true hockey lover? YES!

As loud as the gold medal game was it was even louder after the 'dragon slayer' goal.
Prior to that, for the whole 3rd period and OT, you could hear a pin drop for most of the time and it wasn't because Canuck fans don't know how to cheer. It was because everyone was fully focused on the game itself.
