Is it just impossible to tell us what was said, or how they identified the culprits ?

Kind of sick of just accepting this totally opaque, hidden tragedy that never actually gets explained.

Guess what, if the player pokes the guy in the face with the stick, and it's the wrong guy...... I bet we never hear about it. Or if what was said is highly subjective in its meaning....... doesn't matter.

How did one guy and one gal "do a chant" ?

It may very well be just as it's been reported. But I'd like the opportunity to have the facts and be allowed my own opinion.

If the fan did say something racist then its bad, no question.

No place for that.

However, I am with you NYRfan and I don't believe really anything the media reports anymore unless I see it or hear it myself.

The official in the penalty box heard it and called for security.....

If this happened in Philly it would be a much bigger story....

What I read was that the fans were chanting Basketball! Basketball! Basketball!

Certainly could've been worse, but no one should be doing this in 2018.

It was a Red Wing fan who threw the banana. Simmonds might be the most popular Flyer right now, imo....

Any fan base can get ugly.

To me it seemed like he was going after a guy looking at his phone as surrounding fans were inflamed in taunts of rage or drunkedness....Of course I never saw it first hand but I thought it a bit odd..

Regardless no time for this behavior in our current times.

I do not care what your culture, as long as your good people, that's all that counts.

If all he chanted was "basketball" at him, then they should say that on the news. The way it's being reported they make it sound like he was being called a monkey and/or n*****.

I guess the basketball chant is racist too, judging by the players' reaction? But all the stories I've seen say something like "fans ejected after chanting racist slur at black player". In my opinion, there's a big difference there, no?

Or is it that hard for the news to be honest about something?

Twitter of course is full of people demanding that the Blackhawks release the guys name so that they can publicly shame him and of course ruin his life.

Basketball is racist now? I thought that was a joke and they were saying something else.

What exactly was their intent by chanting it?....

I absolutely hate how the word racist is thrown out by the left, I hate the media and I can't stand political correctness either. But yes, chanting basketball to a black guy at a hockey game is racist. Why chant that at a black guy?

Perhaps they should have chanted pussy, would have been more accurate.

It's obviously shitty *IF* they were saying the dude should be in the NBA and not the NHL.

But again, I marvel that there is an automatic decision made that whatever it was, no matter what, it was "obviously racism". No discussion required, just make up whatever backstory you need to "prove" the mandatory accusation.

How many people were doing it ? Was it just people next to the box ? Were they all staring or pointing at the box ?

If it was a bunch of random people 20-100 feet away, and nobody really knows shit about what or how or why.... then try again, please.

The guy he was threatening with the stick really did look confused, like he was saying "what the fuck are you talking about...... me ?"

I wish Devante would have carved the guy's eye out... that would have really made a great stand against the racism.
