Venting...SERIOUS Venting...

*Contains vulgar language, otherwise uncommon on this site. This is a post strictly written as a fan, in no professional manner what so ever.

Ok here's the off-the-charts vent...not as professional as the other posts you've seen here in the past, but fuck that.

-Idiots. Not all of you in attendance, but most of you. What a disrespectuful act you put on display for the world to see last night. Booing the very team you cheer for, the very team that brought you so much joy JUST ONE YEAR AGO! You might say "yeah, well that's why we're booing - they went from hero to zero"...sure, I'm UPSET with that too, but BOOING your 21 year old goaltender, who's proven that he can WIN and DOMINATE at every level he's played at in his young career? Do you expect him to automatically be able to pull a miracle like Patrick Roy did, or a guy like Cam Ward did much more recently? Not everyone can do that, you crazy bastards.

You think Carey is going to put his A-game on display for you ever again? Yes, he will. Not for YOU, but because he's a professional, and he knows he has a lot to learn.

You ruined it for the rest of us, you inconsiderate motherfuckers.


I'm not the fan of Gainey that I was a few years ago, due to the lack of trading and overall style of patience that I despise so much...but it wasn't long ago that most of you, LIKE ME, thought he was a brilliant man. The guy tried doing what was best for our team when he fired Carbo, a vulnerable team that he KNOWS isn't anywhere near challenging for the Stanley Cup. I didn't agree with the firing, but things happen, and whether I agree or not, he's got the toughest job in the sport, so I have to respect his decision for what it is. Therefore, chants of CARBO! CARBO! last night and throughout the remainder of the regular season were nothing short of fucking disrespectful and classless. The man has given the city his heart and soul, as a player and as a human being. It's alright to have an opinion about his decisions, negative or postive, but to humiliate him that way is just uncalled for.

Try this excersise: Pretend to be a fan of another team, preferably in the United States. Now, pretend you watched all four playoff games between Montreal and Boston, and saw or heard all the different things that would appaul you to see and hear happening to your own team. Now, imagine what feelings you have for the MONTREAL FANS IN GENERAL! I can guess your answer: They're FUCKED UP.

You ruined it for the rest of us, you inconsiderate motherfuckers.


I hate to say it, but I used to defend us as fans when opposing fans said we were classless. Sure, we do ceremonies right, and we have tons of history...but that doesn't give us the right to constantly compare our current team to those of yesteryear! These men are their own men, not the "next incarnations" of Richard or Beliveau or Dryden. We ARE classless! We still BOO the AMERICAN ANTHEM! ARE YOU ALL FUCKING STUPID? REALLY???? I actually SING ALONG to it when I'm at the game, both because it's a great anthem and because it represents a good piece of our current core players, and a bigger piece of our future.

Guys we drafted high and were projected to make a serious impact for our team or maybe even be captains or assistants have to stand there and listen to a bunch of people boo their NATIONAL ANTHEM. Do you seriously think that pending UFA's Higgins and Komisarek want to stay? Bye bye first round's time to rebuild again! Or wait a minute....will we be booing Pacioretty soon? Or McDonaugh? Or Fischer? Or Kristo? At this rate, I see all of those guys pulling an 'Eric Lindros' and demanding to be traded before they even play a game in front of these "fans". We have to re-build for 2020, not 2010.

You ruined it for the rest of us, you inconsiderate motherfuckers.


Now imagine the rest of the UFA class that will become available on July 1st. Give me one good reason why they should re-sign with this team...I dare you to not use "the history" as one of your arguments.

These men see what it is to play in a jungle...and they don't like it! WHO WOULD?

Do you blame Briere now? His car would probably be on fire by now if we had him and he didn't contribute to winning a playoff game...ACTUALLY, if he were here LAST YEAR, his car would probably be on fire too, for WINNING a series! What a joke...

What else can I say? Oh, I know. How's this?

You ruined it for the rest of us, you inconsiderate motherfuckers.

You are dead on with every single point.

Today, I am embarrassed to be considered a Habs fan. Our image is forever tainted by the clueless, rude and disgusting people who attended the last 2 games. People already think very little of us ALL as fans: riots, booing anthems, taunting - this is all people see.

I don't mean to paint everyone with the same brush, as there were a number of people who tried to drown out the boos last night, but, overall, I am still in a state of shock. I was beyond livid last night (and my boyfriend got the brunt of my rage: sorry, Rob!) and seeing Higgins on TV, practically choking back tears, made me even more upset.

I hope the team knows that the true fans do not condone last night's bullshit. Yes, we're all disappointed at the outcome and at the season in general, and I think there are more constructive ways to express your displeasure than being a complete dick.

My hope for a brighter 2009-2010 is dwindling - who will want to play in such a toxic environment created and maintained by us - so-called die-hard fans? Sigh.

It's a dark time for a team that fooled so many of us last year...Finishing first was the first step to a descent into hell.
