can't we have some corner of my world not tainted with political correctness?

He had a thumb down and a logo up, surrounded by people cheering their sports team and wearing team logos and waving team merchandise.

He didn't hang a rat.

What a legend. Sometimes the stars just align. Camera slowly zooms in, phone guy raises his phone to cover the singer's face completely while screaming GFG.

Too funny/awesome.

Sounds like sour grapes over here.

How is holding a phone up disrespectful during the national anthem but shaking pom poms.

Lighten up man.

Good but where is his Flames jersey?

Upon further reflection i take that back. We aren't Riders fans.

The way the Oilers played last night they didn't need any.

Games two and three could have gone either way, but they were full marks last night.

Good on him for raising the phone. I like that part, even as an Oiler fan. I think that's cool to keep the rivalry building, but he probably shouldn't be booing or cheering Go Flames Go during the anthem. I'm still of the mindset that anthems should be treated respectfully.

It was funny. I laughed when I noticed him and his phone.

It is like the physical manifestation of Oiler fans signing up on a Flames board to troll, lol.

Just as disrespectful as all the other people there just yelling there heads off before and during the national anthem? Wow

I now know why SJW's are disliked almost universally

They were cheering before the song started, but then singing along with the national anthem. This guy was chanting go flames go and trying to block out the singer during the anthem. If an Oilers fan did that at a Flames game after the Oilers got swept out of the playoffs, I think CP would be pretty upset about. I don't really care too much, but I don't think he's a hero.

You place way too much importance on the national anthem at a sporting event. They shouldn't even be singing them anymore.
