In Response to Re: Disgraceful
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Disgraceful : Fletch, did you read the article I cited? It's from the CBC, and it says "some individuals claiming to be Bruins fans" (and I think that's been edited from the first time I read it, where I swear it originally said "some Bruins fans"). I didn't make this up. AND, it doesn't speak to my motives -- if anything, I'm hoping that others will understand how I feel when some people respond to every post I make with a reference to rioters and car arsonists. The riot was a black mark on my city, something I've moved beyond, but I don't consider it fairplay when I get it thrown back in my face every time I post.

If you want to stoop to the lowest common denominator of the fans here, then fine, rub our noses in some idiot racist fans that are somehow associated with Boston.
As for me, I have never chastised you about the riots or given Kennedy a hard time about 911 calls, because it is obvious you guys aren't associated with that behavior. In my opinion, you came here today with this thread, and that title, to associate all of us with some anonymous lowlife on the internet, and that is weak. Did you think it was important to point out to us that racism is disgraceful? What's the discussion? You're tweaking us. Admit it.
I haven't seen one single expression of anger or ill-will towards Joel Ward here, so the discussion would be kind of empty. I think we all know that the internet is a popular forum for cowardly anonymous idiots. I'm just happy that Joel Ward mentioned getting lots of support from Boston afterwards.
