The worst a Bruins fan can be: Leafs fan punched out at Garden after Bruins loss

Seems a group of Leafs fans got jumped after Saturday's game at the Garden - and one of them was punched into unconsciousness.

"I had a cat scan done, I got three staples in the back of my head, swollen cheek, cut the inside my mouth, and concussed. I don't remember the end of the game because of it."

Agreed ...While both actions

Agreed

...While both actions are examples of hideous behavior at sporting events, is holding up an offensive sign even in the same ballpark as cold-cocking an opposing fan who had the audacity to wear a different colored jersey in the other team's building.

Disclaimer: I'm an avid Bruins fan and Boston resident who happens to love the city of Toronto.

Terrible.

There is no room for this in hockey. The B's aren't the club that I support and I find the Garden extremely hostile towards 'outsider' fans - I stopped wearing any colors to games that mark me as such.

It gets much worse if you're sitting towards the back. I know it's unfair to judge a fanbase based on the actions of a few bad apples, but it is one arena I don't feel 100% safe in even during regular season play. The confrontations I have confrontations I have experienced were downright nasty.

Don't worry

I'm sure that WBZ Radio will have this as "breaking news" for their Monday 7AM newscast in a couple of weeks. Far more important for them to interview the Marathon bombing suspects' hair stylist first.

Having previously worked at the garden

I can tell you all flat out the worse behavior during hockey games I've ever observed has come from Habs [Montreal] fans. HANDS DOWN the most obnoxious fans. This kind of stuff is par for the course in hockey. Nothing to see here,folks. I'm sure Toronto fans aren't particularly shocked.
