Edmonton Fans Are Better Than This

from the Edmonton Journal,
As the fans exhort their team -- a truly contending club for the first time in years -- to dial their game up a notch and take out the powerful Detroit Red Wings, it's time for some members of the public to tone down their alcohol intake, coarseness, their swearing and, in some cases, their attempts to win what appears to be a public gross-out contest. ...The most visible evidence was a placard that one fan carried, its message an offensive, sexually crude take-off on Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock's surname. It was bad enough that arena staff did not confiscate the sign when the fan entered the building, although such a screening process is admittedly imperfect. Worse, the placard was displayed on the large scoreboard video screen.
