    Beat LA would be referring to basketball.  USA is referring to the city of Boston (in the USA) having a hockey team kick the tar out of a hockey team from Montreal (in Canada).

    It's not a reference to the nationality of the players, obviously.

    Boston is in the US.  Montreal is in Canada.  The team from the US is pounding the team from Canada.

    It bugs me too actuaually, and usually Im not bugged by stupid things like this.  However, the Bruins have more players who arent American than are, and it is a bit disrespectful.  I wish theyd just chant "BOSSS-TOON!" or something.

    I can't stand the 'USA' chant either. It reminds me of the so called hockey fans up here come playoff time. They'll cheer for any canadian team and when you ask them why, they'll say I don't want a team from the USA to win. Bugs the crap out of me.

    The USA chant is fine.  It's obviously not being directed at the players themselves, but rather the Canadiens franchise and its fans.

    but there could be so many better, more relevant chants...  I don't know, but some ideas:

    911

    "Get well Maxi Pad"

    7-0 there could have been a "touchdown" chant

    "We want Auld" would have been good

    didn't hear one mock cheer for Price making a routine save.

    I think "Thank you Carey" when Auld came in would have been good.

    I'm a big Bruin fan. And the USA chant bugged me. I didn't like it. I thought that was saved for International events, not across the border stuff. I did like the Ole Ole one though. That really thumbs it back at the Hab fans back home. I KNOW they were listening !!!

    It's a dumb chant. Makes sense when the US National team is playing, but not in the NHL, when Americans make up a vast minority of every single NHL club.

    But when you're winning 5-0 at the time, I think fans can chant what they want.

    I think you, and most people and probably 100% of Montreal fans, look at this totally wrong. I look at it as a fan to fan chant. There's a little humour built in there, you see. Boston fans are quite capable of being clever.  Bruins fans are from the USA (mostly) and Canadiens fans are from Canada (mostly), which is now a subsidiary of the US but that's neither here nor there :)

    I don't think there's a "right" and "wrong" way to look at it. I just don't think NHL games are very political.

    It's not political. It's simply a fun chant from a bunch of Americans at a sporting event to bother a bunch of Canadians. It seems obvious to me and I don't understand why most people miss this. No sense of humour, I guess.

    It is a "fun" chant, and I have no issue with it.  But people don't "miss" it, they just don't see it the same way as you do.

    I'm not offended by it. I don't think it should be stopped. It's not a big deal, and I hope there's no "outrage" (the most overused word these days in the English language, and probably French, too). I just personally find it dumb, and I told you why.  Apparantly, I'm not alone, and some Bruins fans see it likewise. But like I said, at 5-0, people can chant what they want.

    It's a dumb chant when it's not an international match.

    It adds fuel to the fire for the idiots that like to boo national anthems.

    Re: "u.s. a"

    The USA chant is stupid.

    Why do we not hear it when the B's are playing any of the other 5 Canadian teams at home?  Because it's a misplaced target put on a hockey team that plays in Montreal and uses the moniker CanadiEns.  Man I wish they would be forced to change their name.  If they were called the Maroons, would we still hear this chant?  

    I think some Bruins fans get confused with the Habs name.  Canadien is very different than Canadian and when they get lumped together as if they are the same thing, it just isn't right.  Lots of hab fans are separatists anyway so this chant means nothing to those aholes.
