Habs fans are the dumbest on the planet

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.

NFL Draft picks No. 1-8: Tunsil sliding after video of bong hit surfaces

NFL Draft picks No. 1-8: Tunsil sliding after video of bong hit surfaces

No access at Gillette? No first-round pick unless the Patriots make a swap into the latter stages of the round? No problem. We're all over it from the palatial offices here in Burlington. We go pick-by-pick through the first round.

Rams: Jared Goff, QB, Cal

“Is there anything you’d like to translate to the fans of the Los Angeles Rams?!?!” Deion Sanders wheezed into the face of Goff moments after he was selected. Goff, who to that point had done little but shake his head and “golly-gee” then had something else to be befuddled by. Goff will, for the next few years, provide adequate cover for Jeff Fisher to continue stealing money as an NFL head coach. Fisher – who’s won 8, 6, 7, 7, 6 and 7 games in his past six seasons and hasn’t coached a playoff win since 2003 – did as he was told by the league office and milked the clock all the way down before making the selection everyone knew the Rams would make when they mortgaged the future to make a 2016 splash in their new city.

Eagles: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State

“Now, the competition really begins,” Deion Sanders told to Carson Wentz. “Who’s gonna prepare their team to the playoffs first?” Wentz, who fits the quarterback suit so much better than Goff, had to be stunned that he not only had to lead his team to the playoffs on the field but also prepare them there as well. Now the Eagles have to assuage the feelings of a former No. 1 overall pick, Sam Bradford, who’s pissed that the Eagles were going to draft a quarterback. And Wentz has to look at Bradford and make sure he doesn’t end up like him.

Chargers: Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State

“You fillllllleddddd with emotions,” Deion Sanders told Joey Bosa. “Give me the feeling right now.” The feeling from Bosa was surprise. He said he thought he’d be cooling off for another half-hour or 45 minutes before being selected but the Chargers brought the first eye-widener of the night by selecting Bosa who Pro Football Focus had as their No. 1. The Chargers knew it all along and didn’t tip their hands.

Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Ohio State

“This kid can bring them right into the playoffs!” proclaimed NFL Network analyst Steve Mariucci. Whoa, Mooch. Whoa. First off, it’s a playoff team to begin with if Tony Romo doesn’t crack his collarbone again. Second off, running behind that offensive line with an outside receiver like Dez Bryant and a tight end like Jason Witten on the field, you don’t necessarily need to burn the fourth overall pick on a running back. But the Cowboys love their splash factor and Elliott provides one.

Jaguars: Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State

“You’re dancing,” Deion Sanders observed. “You’re exuding your swag. Are you happy right now?” Ramsey, the massive 6-1, 209-pound corner confirmed that he was. He also confirmed that he’s a shutdown corner. The Jaguars, as Senator Phil Perry noted as we watched the draft from our Burlington offices, are going to be good soon.

Ravens: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

“Folks,” said NFL Draft Analyst Mike Mayock, “he’s got 35 and three-quarter-inch arms.” Yes he does. And now he’s going to the Ravens where his physicality and toughness are going to enable Baltimore to plunk him down on Joe Flacco’s blind side and let him roll. Still doesn’t really address the issue of wide receiver talent aside from the ageless Steve Smith but what can you do. Stanley’s a good pick.

49ers: DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon

It was between Buckner and offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil at this point but just before the draft commenced, a video of Tunsil taking a bong hit while wearing a gas mask popped up on his Twitter feed. It was deleted and a hacking was blamed. And Buckner likely became the beneficiary of the Tunsil fiasco. My suspicion is Tonya Harding was behind it.

Titans: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

The Titans made a deal with the Rams, sending them the 15th overall pick to move up and get former walk-on Conklin. The Browns got the 15th overall pick in return and a third-rounder as well. And the Laremy Tunsil debacle rolls on as reports that the Ravens took Tunsil off their draft board when the video popped up. .

Celtics-Hawks Game 6 at the half: C's fall behind, show signs of comeback

BOSTON – The Boston Celtics have 24 minutes to keep their season alive.

If it happens, they’ll have to play much better in the final 24 minutes as they go into the half trailing Atlanta, 41-33.

Boston fell behind 34-21 in the second quarter, but the Celtics showed signs of getting back into the game with a 12-7 spurt to close out the half.

Isaiah Thomas’ call for additional help in this series rang loud and clear among his teammates with Jonas Jerebko leading the way with five of Boston’s first nine points.

But Boston’s 9-5 start was followed by an 8-0 Hawks run that led to a 13-9 Hawks lead as Brad Stevens called a time-out with 3:51 to play in the quarter.

The Hawks’ momentum was slowed down some, but the Celtics still couldn’t muster enough shots to regain the lead.

At the end of the first quarter, the Celtics were down 20-17.

Boston continued to struggle in the third quarter, with Stevens looking for someone, anyone to catch fire offensively.

He tried rookie R.J. Hunter and Terry Rozier.

Kelly Olynyk struggled at both ends of the floor during his first half stint.

And Isaiah Thomas, the focal point of Atlanta’s efforts defensively, was once again bottled up for most of the first half.

He wound up scoring 9 points on 3-for-11 shooting.

Meanwhile the Hawks were looking very much like a team ready to move on to the next round of play, getting contributions from key starters and reserves like Tim Hardaway Jr. who had 7 points in the first half. 

Patriots show support for Brady just before start of the draft

Patriots show support for Brady just before start of the draft

The Patriots haven't made any kind of statement about Tom Brady's four-game suspension since the Second Circuit ruled to have it reinstated earlier this week. They did make a statement showing support for their quarterback just before the start draft, though. 

In the moments leading up to commissioner Roger Goodell's announcement that the Rams were "on the clock" with the first pick of the first round, the Patriots posted an image of Brady's jersey to their Instagram account. 

The image is the same one that the Patriots have used as their profile photo on Twitter for much of the duration of the Deflategate saga. The team has no first-round pick (No. 29) as a result of the punishment issued by the league due to Deflategate. The team was also docked a fourth-round pick in 2017 and $1 million for the alleged ball-deflation scheme. 

Patriots coach Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio have the ability to trade into the first round, but if they do, they will make their selection with the lower of their two first-rounders. Therefore they cannot make a selection before pick No. 29.
