Montreal Canadiens fans.
A phrase synonymous with crazy, idiotic, moronic....well, the list goes out.
Bruins captain Zdeno Chara drove Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty into the turnbuckle near the benches the other night, leaving Pacioretty with a severe concussion and a fractured vertebra.
Based on Chara's history there was likely no malice involved but that hasn't stopped crazy Canadiens fans from wishing death upon his family, friends and teammates. A perfectly non-insane reaction.
Hey, we agree. It sucks that Pacioretty got hurt. But really... you want Chara's kids to die in a fire? What kind of people are you? This is why no one respects Montreal. You're all bat poop crazy. But hey, thanks for helping Canada keep America's head warm.
Montreal is a city so stupid they use a soccer chant at hockey games. Oleee! Ole-ole-o -shut up. We get it. You want to be European, but you're too lame even for that.
This is a city that has set previous standards for stupidity. This is a city that has tipped cars.
..and set fires after a first round playoff victory.
Not a championship. A first round victory. Awesome guys. You stay classy, Montreal.
So it really shouldn't be a surprise that this classless, idiotic city again set the standard for stupidity.
Montreal cops were flooded with calls Tuesday night. Was there a shooting? A bank robbery? A suspicious character in a van dressed like a clown trying to lure children into a windowless van?
Nope. Montreal fans were calling the cops.... because they wanted the cops to arrest Chara and press charges.
No, seriously. We're not making it up.
Citizens of this fine city actually called the cops over something that happened in a hockey game.
Look, it sucks that Paciorettys injury was so severe. We hope he makes a full recovery and is able to resume his NHL career. We really do.
But Montrealers are really that dumb? What do you want? Do you want Chara chained up or something for making a hockey play?
The hit was very, very, VERY unfortunate. We dont deny that. Maybe Chara should have shown more awareness. Maybe emotion got the best of him. He is the only one that knows. But you people act like he tore down your city and should be executed.
It is not like Chara sat around and plotted the demise of Max Pacioretty. There were no grand plans to end a season and possibly a career.
Where was the outrage in Canada when Savard went down? Canadiens fans, classy as they are, openly mocked the Bruins and their fans. They laughed at Savard.
Where was the outrage when Pacioretty drove Mark Eatons head into the boards? Yes, the end result wasnt the same but the sentiment was. If Chara hits Pacioretty anywhere else on the ice, were looking at a simple interference call.
But you keep making death threats to Bruins bloggers and writers, Montreal. Keep Tweeting about how you hope Charas family dies or Tweeting about how you hope the Bruins plane blows up. Our opinion of you couldnt possibly be any lower.
Youre awful, awful people.
