Hey Try Cats....

Perhaps the reason they don't have drunken brawls in BC is because you have to take out a mortgage to be able to afford to buy a beer at BC Place (from what I've heard, never bought on there myself).

No kidding. I still can't help thinking about that fan climbing up and down the goal posts earlier this year.

There's not enough security to go around lol.The fans get so riled up during a game, security has to be in 50 places at once sometimes.That's okay, Jamall Johnson made some nice fan tackles today :lol:

Wasn’t it 2 years ago in Winnipeg where the LIons had to walk off the sidelines because they had batteries and other stuff thrown at them?

Should we start bronzing the BC fans wings and halos. I don't believe a word of it. It happens at EVERY stadium. Tell me it doesn't happen in BC with a straight face. I don't condone it. The drunks who throw drinks at the other teams are an exception not the rule. There's never any call for violence over a friggin' game but don't act like this is somehow encouraged in Hamilton.

That kind of stuff does happen every where. Don't tell me it doesn't happen in BC. Perhaps you are not close enough to the players at BC place but there has to be altercations between opposing fans in big games. People are people everywhere.

Some people did cheer when a BC player got hurt near the end and it was not the majority. They were pretty loud though around my section. I was shocked actually. I've never seen that happen before in 20 years, not even against the Argos. I guess Emotions were running that high. You would've also noticed that the crowd applauded when the injured player got up. I never like to see somebody laying on the ground hurt. Those that would cheer someone's injury are not reflective of most Hamilton fans.

As far as chants to rattle the other team - is this something new in sports? I'm sorry but grow a thicker skin. Have a little fun. If you're an opponent coming to IWS it's going to be a rough afternoon. Sorry :cowboy: . Ivor Wynne is a tough place to play for opponents and it always will be. It can be brutal but if a player can't take it, find another job.

When the B.C player punched Obby Khaun in the nuts, everybody in the building was chanting B.C SUCKS!

However, my favorite chant is "i'd rather be a Bomber than a beep'in Eskimo" it has faded a bit in the past years but it is still great.

In 2000 my favorite chant was when people were leaving early in the the 4th quarter, and people would jingle their keys and chant "beat the traffic, Beat, beat, the traffic!" :lol: :lol:

Never heard of the key jingle, but I would love to see that one. Too funny. I never leave games early. I paid full price and want to see the whole game, even if it's a blow out...been there done that.

That key jingle chant is classic. :lol:

the keys thing sounds funny. I havnt had a lot of experiences in other stadiums... the werst was when i was wearing my stamps jersy in commonwelth for a labour day return(we won). and i actually scared. i had people threating me, some guys were following me outside and even pushed me a few times. i actually turned around to face them and when i waa about to get my ass kicked, some stamps fan came to my rescue, and more people showed up and thank God edmontons finest was there to escort me away from the stadium, but asked me to remove my jersy for my own safety before i went into the subway. That was the last time i even went to a game in edmonton.

Not once in all the years that I went to Leos games as a season ticket holder (84-87, 94-98, 03-today) have I ever seen any booze thrown at the opposing teams, or anything else harmful, and for some of those years, I was on the opposition side of the stadium.

LoL, who’s logic is flawed? If the Lions would have lost to Montreal in that game in overtime, it wouldn’t have meant a damn thing except the lions wouldn’t have mad the playoffs. All the Lions have showed us this year is that they are very lucky and were gifted wins and a playoff spot.

Bull…

And even if it doesn’t happen at BC Place, it does happen at other stadiums, not just Hamilton. So get over it.

I love hearing the other team's fans chanting "B.C. Sucks" especially when their team is losing because it's a sign of respect. lol. I love the fact it's starting to happen in Sask, Winnipeg and Hamilton. Now if we can only get Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal and Toronto involved.

The reason there is "interaction" between fans in stadiums like Ivor Wynne or Taylor Field has more to do with proximity than anything else. In both stadiums you can reach out and touch the players. And it doesn't take much of an arm to throw something at the opposition bench. And the players react to the fans. ETc. At BC Place, you are so far from the benches, even in the front row, what would be the point of throwing something?
If you haven't been to these stadiums and are trying to compare, you need to go on a few road trips.....

There were some ticat fans a few rows ahead of me at Canad inns, and all game some people behind me were throwing little peices of something at them. AND one time a calgary fan was taking on the whole crowd of Bomber fans, and someone dumped a full beer on him. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I’ve had season tickets for 34 years. Not once have our fans ever thrown anything on the field, cheered when one of the other teams players get hurt, or chanted ****** SUCKS.

Well that’s not totally true, there have been a few YOU SUCK REF chants, but never the other team. We don’t throw things ever. Even if we were so inclined, our stadium management has some brain cells, and hasn’t served anything in cans or bottles for the 30+ years I have been going. Try throwing a plastic cup and all you are going to do is soak the people in the row in front of you and look like an idiot.

Are we perfect fans? Hell no. There is always the odd jerk, or pack of them, but they get kicked out very quickly, and the stupidness never spreads to the rest of the section, side, or stadium like it seems to in other venues.

B-C SUCKS! B-C SUCKS!

But I'm still cheering for you guys this Sunday, take down those dirty birds :slight_smile:
