I haven't noticed any hate towards him for being Canadian specifically. That's a pretty ignorant reason to hate someone nonetheless.

Wow what a great thread. I love how you stupid ass canadians always accuse Americans of hating other countries and shit, you guys are the most arrogant mother****ers on the planet, and all you do is bash Americans. However, I never see Americans bashing canadians. At least not around here. Americans on this board have to put up with your snobby ****ing asses everyday and you don't hear us *****ing about it so why don't you just **** off?

Seriously, what are you looking to accomplish with this POS thread anyway?

He has class, skill, youth and doesn’t act like an arrogant idiot so of course he’s popular here in the USA.

If Americans hate Canadians is in response to all the left wing anti American blather that comes out of your irrelevant country. I find it comical how so many politically motivated Canadians who spew their intellectual superiority propaganda and spend so much time hating on and thinking about my country, meanwhile I spend 0 hours thinking about our frozen little brother to the North.

By the way I work with some of your countrymen here in California in the biotech industry and will have to say that you are loosing some of your best educated and brightest people because your government taxes high earners to death and your biotech industry is a joke.

Enjoy the brain drain

Yes, I don't see Americans bashing GSP because he is Canadian so I don't agree with this thread.

However, it did cause some nice melt downs and some people revealed some interesting opinions!

You are one of the few humble canadians on this board and I respect you for that. I never talked to canadians before I joined this forum and I must say their stereotype of being arrogant assholes with a "holier than thou" attitude is completely true for the most part, just like every other cultural stereotype. And just like every stereotype, there are exceptions, and you are an exception. Most of the arrogant canadians no longer post here though, so that's a good thing. (MMAfreak, Mr Bungle, NachoMama, etc.)

I think it was Joe Rogan's coverage of behind the scenes of the last UFC payperview in which one fan thought GSP was from france or something (I don't remember details) but Joe corrected him. I don't think Americans hate canadians (I'm half yank) but American crowds like any nationality boo fighters not from the states. It is really easy to get the 'U.S.A' chants going just as it is to get rivalries in other countries. Americans are proud and so should Canadians. its tough to be really proud without looking down on another country.

Stereotypes are there because 90% of the time they are true. That goes for Canadian stereotypes, American stereotypes etc. They are all true if you look at a big enough cross section of the population. Internet forums attract people from all over that shoot off their mouth. that is just the unfortunate reality.
