    Link: Congratulations Lakers, Now Let`s Celebrate - It`s been 7 years since the Lakers brought a championship home--the town has been due for a riot for years.

    I honestly have never understood WHY people take to the streets and participate in rioting and general douchebaggery when their teams WINS a World Championship.

    As a species, we humans really suck. Images like the ones above just underscore the fact that we will eventually destroy ourselves unless something in our makeup changes, and changes SOON.

    Well it is natural to want to celebrate with fellow fans or what-have-you, so charging into the streets to slap hands and chest bump is a reasonable reaction.

    But then you throw in alcohol, and all you need is a couple sparks to get the mob mentality rolling. Everyone likes a little destruction, we`re just able to not act on it when we`re sober. The inebriation brings out the beast.

    You know it`s never really made sense to me... why would you destroy your own city when you win? I mean honestly, wouldn`t you rather go and tear up the opposing teams city, or maybe just beat the hell out of the opposing team... but the next morning their the ones that have to deal with everything they did so whatever, to each their own I suppose, besides, if it wasn`t for those crazy sob`s we wouldn`t have anything to point and laugh at now would we ;)

WHAT THE F*UCK?!?! How freaking imature can you get?! WHAT DO YOU GAIN FROM THIS?! Good lord they`re effing ADULTS!! You should celebrate with a home/bar party, not f*cking up the whole city!!

    this shows what can be expected of ur average sports fan only times maybe a thousand or so. they shouldnt be allowed to gather in groups of more then 2. sound like overkill? not at all, this is prolly the first time i have spoken out against an undesirable group in society without advocating slaughter and/or forced sterilization haha.

    "we`re just able to not act on it when we`re sober. The inebriation brings out the beast.
    " thats the common excuse for people that drink. alcohol barely changes a person more then lack of sleep. other then the various physical deficiencies that come with drunkenness a person is the same as they r sober. they just dont care.. no mercy for drunks i say. if u cant control urself u shouldn`t be allowed to drink

    "In 2000, after the Lakers won their first NBA title in 12 years, fans rioted outside Staples Center, burning police cars and leaving more than 70 vehicles damaged, many at nearby auto dealerships."

    just lakers fans or do other people do this when they win a championship?

    Sure, gripe and groan, but judgment goes out the window when you`re wasted.

    "...personally I think I`d ban all booze from my stadium if that happened to something I was an owner of."

    Im sure miller lite is going to love that idea.

    I gotta say, I didnt do any of this when the Marlins won (twice) or when the Heat won....then again if the Dolphins ever win I cannot be accountable for my actions

I think it`s so funny that fans riot and "celebrate" their team winning when in reality the Lakers probably don`t even give a crap about them. See the Riots in Tehran I can understand, but this? This is just Americans being Americans. It`s sad really.

    and the person you quoted:

    this is actually talked about a LOT on the sports radio channels. NCAA is highly corrupt and are just in it for the money. the other thing that irks people is the NBA, kids get full paid scholarships to schools simply because they didn`t get drafted out of high school. after 1 year in college, they go to the NBA, that scholarship was wasted.

    perfect example was one of the kids they talked about. he got a 2.0 his first semester but was taking almost all kinesiology(sp?) classes (taught by basketball profs) and second semester signed up for normal classes and didn`t attend not one. name slips my mind.

    people making millions to play a kids game is sad. its like actors making millions and being upset...we pay too much to be entertained.

    God forbid we riot AGAINST something, like rising gas prices or the ridiculous price of worker`s comp in CA.

    DertMerchant, excuse me, this isn`t the first time people have rioted over a silly game, and its not always America who does it...

    South American Soccer Riot

    Russian Soccer Riot

    Even Iran has soccer riots...

    So let`s just not start.

    Why would you burn Laker stuff? Shouldn`t they be burning piles of Magic pennants or something?

    Cool. Here`s the perfect chance for someone to pull the "invisible rope" trick for a crowd of people.

    this looks just like the Montreal riot last year, except, the Canadiens didnt even win the cup... fans rioted after a game seven win against Boston in the first round.
