Vancouver Riots: At Least Miami Heat Fans Didn't Burn The City Down After Dallas Won

Professor Charles Barkley, a noted sociologist and all around portly fellow, recently proposed a hypothesis that the Miami Heat "have the worst fans."

Chuck, you might want to watch some video of what went down in Vancouver last night. Because we're pretty sure that burning your city's downtown to a crisp after losing a playoff game is a worse crime of fandom than having too many Ed Hardy wearing rich guys in the front row at AA.

The Boston Bruins destroyed the Canucks on their home ice last night, with goalie Tim Thomas pitching a shutout while one-time-Florida Panther Roberto Luongo imploded for three goals.

The Canadian masses, it is fair to say, did not deal well with the disappointment.

The worst crime that went down in Miami on Sunday was some traitorously delirious partying with Mark Cuban by some supposedly hometown celebrities at LIV. Canucks fans decided, instead, to go completely bananas on any unattended cars and shop windows near the arena. Check it out:



How long until Barks finds a way to blame this sad scene on LeBron?

I can't believe some people rip Miami for not rioting after losing in the Finals. What the hell is wrong with people today? It's just a game, get over it. Too bad, people do not show the same passion to fight social ills that plague every city in the world. Why don't you get upset with poverty, hunger? No, all you care about is about some dumb game.

Hello Miami!   I'm in Vancouver warming up for an Alaska cruise Sat.

We watched the hockey game at a sport bar in Victoria/Vancouver Is.  Yesterday we took the ferry over and saw thousands of hochey fans and hundreds of "white" scumbags coming into town.

At the end of the game??? more like a wipe-out.....the "white" scumbags were shown live  on T.V. rioting.  Setting fires, looting store and confronting Police seemed to be the reason the scumbags came to town.

I know the Miami Times might not want to hear this...but the scumbags got away with what they did because the Vancouver Police took the "low road" and let most of it happen.

Vancouver could have used a few Field Forces from Miami Beach Police and Miami Police PD.The scumbags would have got a good ass beating and lots of arrests.

P.S. I mentioned "white" scumbags...so folks realize that riots don't always involved "Black" folks. 

Back to sightseeing...

It wasn't a play off. It was the last game of the finals. Additionally, these fans aren't fairweather like Miami. They fill the stadium through the bad and good.

It was not the masses- it was only a small group. Also; the difference is that Canuck fans and Miami heat fans is that Miami fans are only fans in the good times. So before you go Comdeming them why don't you look at all the variables and write the truth? Oh, I forgot new times does not pay you to do that. My bad

I am a Canuck's fan and a Heat fan, which made for a very difficult play-off, no sleep for days, situation. My daughter was downtown Vancouver when it erupted and she and her boyfriend had an extremely difficult time getting home. Her boyfriend had jumped on the "anti-Heat" bandwagon with the rest of the continent. At least I can say to him that Miami fans are much better losers than Vancouver's. No, wait, that doesn't sound good! Heat and Canucks, we'll get 'em next year! Go Heat! Go Canucks!

Dude really??????? Miami "fans" could care less. All they want to do is go to Club Douche sort coke and cheer for the Mavs. The not so hot Heat and city of Miami is the laughing stock of the nation right now. Surely you have seen every late night host in the US make fun of your team full of chokers and your could give a shit fans right?

Hey asshole, why don't you STFU and enjoy your championship. It's pretty obvious that in Miami we have people from all over the country so the fan base takes a beating at times. But I think it's safe to say that there were not any true Heat fans at that club celebrating with the Mavs. So fuck off!!!!

Yes, Congratulations to the Mavericks from a Heat fan. You guys did great and deserved to win. Watch out for next year, though! (That's called "Good Sportmanship". Now you try it!)

what i find funny is that you've taken your time to comment on every article the new times posted that mentions the heat/mavs...i mean really.. you could simply not read them..the mavs won (i'm guessing that's your team) yet you're stuck obsessively on the heat and it's fans. instead you could chuckle it off and be happy with the win.
