Classy.

Damn right.. And I'm sure that the people who booed the anthem were also the same people who bopped their heads when "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies came on the speaker system.

Idiots.

I was there. It was really stupid and pointless.
 
2002-04-22 08:29:28 AM  
I don't get it. Why? What have we done lately besides get our pesky soldiers in the way?
 
2002-04-22 09:08:04 AM  
It really was the production team's fault. The set it up as a Canada vs. USA game. During the game when the Pistions had the ball, the screen keep on cycling though the words USA, in turn making the crowd chant. Drunken fans will chant anything you put in front of them.

BTW-Raptons got their ass handed to them and the Canucks suck. USA!

They'll just never get over their hockey failures..

The animals in Detroit need daily beatings to keep them in line.
 
2002-04-22 02:03:11 PM  
Detroiters(well auburn hills, so technically Detroit Suburbanites) are like the school in June.

Aahh, chauvinism, an american value!

You don't boo that National Anthem of any country. The people who booed are a bunch of assholes. I've never booed the American National Anthem, and never will (same goes with all National Anthems).

Yet another reason why Detroit should be forcefully expelled from the Union.
 
2002-04-22 02:07:08 PM  
I bash Michigan and Canada equally. Dunno what to do here...

Its because the Canadians are getting as bad as the French. What's this whole French Language junk? Pretty soon they'll be switching to the Euro-dollar and surrendering to the Afghani's. I'm impressed with a country who's flag has a leaf from a tree mainly responsible for making log cabin syrup. Just my 3 cents

Cheers and Ranting,

"Send him to Detroit!"

Casper -- Me thinks there is some truth to that second statement.
 
2002-04-22 02:14:16 PM  
Good sportsmanship surrenders.
 
2002-04-22 02:15:11 PM  
The Canadians are getting a taste of their own medicine. I've seen way too many clips of Canadians doing the same to U.S. hockey teams. Good for Detroit!
 
2002-04-22 02:15:17 PM  
Yeah, Casper, at first I didnt believe it, but then came your 2nd post, I started to have some doubts, and the 3rd post finally convinced of your superior argumentation skillz! :)
 
2002-04-22 02:15:44 PM  
Canadians are just too damn sensitive.
 
2002-04-22 02:15:47 PM  
Did anyone else notice that all the links off the main page are gone???

Is fark farked?
 
2002-04-22 02:17:38 PM  
How rude. Only this week a U.S. bomber killed four Canadians in Afghanistan in a friendly fire incident.

Generally, when one country accidentally kills the soldiers of an allied country, it is very rude to boo their national anthem the very same week.

It's really shamefull what yahoos USians can be sometimes.
 
2002-04-22 02:18:21 PM  
Well, you can't expect too much from the Detroiteers..er..Detroitians..uh..Detroitoids?

Nothing else to do in Michigan but boo stuff and steal stuff..

Buncha Morons..
 
2002-04-22 02:19:22 PM  
Detroit should be ashamed.
That is downright rude, especially since Canada is fighting with us against the terrorist's nations.
 
2002-04-22 02:20:39 PM  
You know if it were Afghanistan or Iraq I could understand but Canada? What is there to boo. The ARE us.
 
2002-04-22 02:20:43 PM  
I would not boo you Canada. You are my friends.
 
2002-04-22 02:21:16 PM  
Yeah stopdrop, cause that is what people say about Michigan *sarcasm*

Anyway, Detroit surbanites are like a plastic cup.

2002-04-22 02:23:40 PM  
You know what...this angers me to no end. Yeah the stupid Detroit Basketball fans shouldn't have done it. But the same thing happend in reverse when we played in Toronto, didn't quite get the press this is. they booed the crap out of our national anthem, but Canadian fans are so much more dignified...shat aaap.

FARK needs a "VOMIT" tag.

Resisting. urge. to. choke. Beardawgie............
 
2002-04-22 02:24:52 PM  
As a Canadian, if a sophisticated city were to have booed our anthem this would be something that may upset me.

admittedly I have not read the article, any reason why they booed?
 
2002-04-22 02:25:34 PM  
We ARE talking about Detroit for god sake... The arshole of America.
 
2002-04-22 02:26:58 PM  
Why would we boo Canada? Afterall, they are the 51st state. Aren't they?
 
2002-04-22 02:27:46 PM  
I have yet to meet a Canadian that I did not like. Of course I have met thousands of Americans who are pieces of shiat. To Canada, I am sorry.
 
2002-04-22 02:27:54 PM  
It's not Canada's fault the Red Wings are old and over-rated. ;)
 
2002-04-22 02:29:38 PM  

Canada should plan retaliation for that cheap and classless display by stealing away another auto factory by offering tax breaks.

Detroit should be walled off from the rest of the country and run by Snake Plissken.

Suposedly the last time the Pistons played the Raptors, the Toronto fans did the same thing to us. It got lots of press here in the Detroit area, must not have gotten to the rest of the world though.

Last time I went to a Raptors game (in Toronto, no less), the idiot playing the national anthem live completely screwed it up. Got half way through, gave up and had to start again. It was really pathetic. Luckily, not too many people noticed.

That said, Doh! Canada!
 
2002-04-22 02:31:10 PM  
this is being totally exaggerated. i was at the game. yeah there were a few boos when the anthem was announced and the singer started out, but it died away quickly. i for one sang along with O Canada, as an American and a Detroiter. and all of you out there who continue to spout the "detroit's a shiathole" cliche, fark all of you. we dont need you and dont care what you think. you can all suck a fatty.
 
2002-04-22 02:32:30 PM  
And you guys wonder why they ALL hate you ?

Beardawgie:"I'm impressed with a country who's flag has a leaf from a tree mainly responsible for making log cabin syrup."

You'd be hard pressed to find any actual maple in log cabin "syrup." Log cabin sucks.

That said, go Canucks! Go Raptors! I may be a US citizen, but that doesn't stop Detroit from sucking. It sucks so bad, nobody actually lives there. They all live in Grosse Point or wherever. Meanwhile, I've actually been to both Toronto and Vancouver, and both are among the nicest citiest (people AND atmosphere) that I've ever visited.
