Embarrassing Display By Cullitons Fans


I want to first start by saying that I am in no way affiliated with, work with or belong to any team in the GOJHL or OHL.

Secondly,  Congrats to the Stratford Cullitons on winning the 2015-2016 Cherrey Cup. As a Stratford resident I plan to attend all game during the Sutherland cup run.

Good luck to Stratford in the Sutherland Cup. Such a storied organization who outworked, out hustled and eventually wore down the Siskins. Such a deep team with a great leader, lots of depth and a hell of a coaching staff.

Unfortunately, for those surrounding the  Stratford Cullitons, this isn’t a positive article. I’ll be front and center with that. And I’m not trying to tear you apart on this day as you guys have won the Cherrey Cup. But unfortunately  you have a serious black cloud hanging above your head and after witnessing it for months (Seen them do it to nearly every team) It’s about time you step up and do something about the fans that sits behind the bench.

And if you aren’t sure which one well…..


(one in the red)

(Grown Man, Give the finger to teenagers and a few females)


There is a serious fine line between paying your ticket so you should be able to cheer how ever you want. And doing crap like this which has gone on for far too long. And this has been brought up to Cullitons staff as well.

A Stratford fan which sat beside me during game 1 said this to me: He’s been doing this for years. We used to sit near him and just couldn’t take the BS.  Claimed that the fan’s had actually been kicked out from behind the Siskins bench for doing this exact crap.

A fan from the Elmira Sugar Kings added- ” It’s disappointing to see such low class fans cheering on players being injured & that while not all Stratford fans are low class the ones who are outrank the decent fans”

Fans from Waterloo, especially the 15 year old teenage females who took the fan bus in have informed me that they will not be attending more games at the Allman. Due to the fact that they were  being called “Bitc*es” and “Sl*ts” by the fan in the red and by the fan sitting directly to his right wearing black all because they cheered for their teams.

It’s a damn shame really. This has the potential to be a great rivals for fans and teams. Coming into the Allman with 1500 strong, cheering loud and proud for your team. But when fans are pulling crap like this, it’s not fun anymore.


They Allman arena in Stratford is the best arena in the GOJHL maybe even in Ontario to take in a game. But it’s a shame that opposing fans have to deal with the BS from those 2 fans.

When are the Cullitons staff going to step in and do something? After the picture of the middle finger, How in my right mind can I tell a family who has a young kid who wants to watch a live game, that the Allman arena is the place to go when you have guys like this constantly pulling this kind of crap?

I am not suggesting that other teams don’t have fans like this. But I have never gone into an arena to get shot the finger and told to “F**K off” all because I wear my teams colors.


As of right now, we have sent these pictures, as well as pictures of these guys giving the finger from other games to the league.
Hope that stuff like this can be dealt with. For the fans coming from out of town, for the parents of the away fans and for the boys.



Sincerely, Several media, fans, parents who have all wanted to say something.

  1. this is the same person wearing black that was escorted from the arena here in Listowel and I think the other fellow is not allowed in to watch either

  2. Ashley says:

    The same fans that decided to chirp 7 & 8 year old girls…

  3. James says:

    Just to put it out there. Both these individuals have intellectual disabilities. Giving them a hard time in learning right from wrong. Not to say their actions are appropriate as they are not.

    I’m curious, what have you done to stop this before going to social media with your finger pointing rant? Everyone is so quick to be a viral social media hero these days they all forget just how hypocritical they all sound. As someone who just happened to come across this article, I got to say, the person who wrote this sounds like just as big an ass to me as the ones who their pointing fingers at. What happened to doing things in person? To having a backbone and standing up for what you believe in and looking for a real way to help a problem?? Rather then run right to social media and call names back. So he called some people names in front of a few hundred people, you basically just did the same thing back but in front of thousands of people. So why are you better than him I wonder? I am constantly disgusted by the double standard society has when people don’t act how people want them too. It’s ok to do the right thing in the right way instead of just looking to be a viral Facebook post!!!

    i was sitting behind the Cullitons Bench and I Never heard any inappropriate language such as , B**che’s or S**ts being shouted out to any Waterloo fans or anyone , as this person who wrote the article has claimed
    Yes the fan in the red did give the finger (sideways finger btw) , but the person writing the article conveniently left out the facts that it was indeed a Waterloo siskin fans , two elderly women who are die hard Waterloo siskin fans that were giving him the finger in the first place all night , the guy in the red just got fed up with her doing that to him so
    unfortunately he gave her the finger back
    I agree it wasn’t right for him to do this either ,and for everyone’s information he did get a talking to by Security after the game so therefore this has already been dealt with properly
    In My opinion I think the person who wrote this article is just Upset with the fact that Waterloos Siskins lost the cherry cup to a well Deserving Hockey Team , the Strafford Cullitons and are now retaliated by trying to make up story’s to make us Culliton fans look Bad , so who ever you are get your facts straight and stop making up stories to make yourself feel better ,that’s so low of you to do this , just except defeat.

  6. Dave Biron says:

    these same fans also threaten to punch out a 70 yr old woman for cheering for her team in the galt arena as well and chirped a 5 yr old girl too

  7. joy turlin says:

    I agree with ruth and Melissa before you go judging Stratford fans get the whole story before you go out on social media making us look.bad to othet fans in the hockey league.we are not low lives to anywho players on the ice nor would we make fun of an injured player we support our cullitonsaall the way. And to think this fan would call anywho these names never happened nor ever will.we want people to bring their kids to the gamesaand the matter was dealt with by security that night and no you go and be an ass by pointing fingers making us fans look bad whoever supports this guy youre all idiots.alot fans got upset with the refs that night as ruth pointed out he gave the finger sideways not directly at anyone so next time get the real story and facts

  8. joy turlin says:

    If anyone really read his statement he contridicted himself by calling them idiots and ive sat with these fans many times not once have i ever heard them threaten anyone let alone a 70 year old women and wheres the proof its just hearsay trying to make these fans look bad and other Stratford fans too instead of pointing fingers mr Adair get the whole story and the facts before running on to social media and judging them. Im sure the matter was dealt with by security and it should stop here anyone agreeing with this guy is also an ass as Melissa called him why didn’t say something at the game that night oh no he wants to be a big shot and make all the cullitons fans look bad

  9. Glen Nealy says:

    Joy hate to shit on your parade but these 2 clowns do this everywhere they go i have witnessed the Idiots 1st hand as well . So don’t tell me that what Dave said is Bullshit i was there at the Galt arena gardens the night he did threaten to hit the elderly lady . Do you know why this happen ???? It’s because he was yelling obscenities to one of our player who was dark skinned calling him everything from the N word to a monkey and so on . And also have witnessed from being in Stratford these clowns along with many more flipping people the bird . They used to sit on the opponents side and yell and scream the same shit . Even calling the owner of the WinterHawks wife F..n bitches and Sluts just because they were there cheering on the team . So don’t tell any of us that what was said is BS . They were removed from that section i witnessed it 1st hand .

  10. I agree with Melissa and Joy. My Mom and I have sat behind the Culliton Bench for years and know these fans. They have been very kind to my Mom who is 94 years old, helping her up and down the steps and escorting her after every game to the lobby. I had to move seats a month ago as it was getting too hard to get her from the elevator and have seats now on the opposite side. The Waterloo and Elmira fans were sitting near us. I never saw any fan be rude to them. This article is trying to paint all Stratford fans that way, which is not true at all.

  11. Stephen says:

    It’s crazy how many people miss the point of this article. Fan’s like this are everywhere. Which the Author should have addressed. But these 2 clowns have been doing this for years and finally got caught. There is a picture of him clearly giving the finger yet people still defend him. I’ve had season tickets in Stratford for over 25 years and I agree with this article. It’s about time people step in and do something. It only takes 1 person to ruin it for everyone.

  12. Stacy Brooks says:

    The unfortunate part is that fans like this are in every arena. People think that because they paid their $12, they can say and do whatever they want and that it gives them carte blanche to act like an idiot.

  13. Zach says:

    Those two old ladies behind the Waterloo bench never once gave the finger I was sitting behind them but nice try to comeback 🙂

  14. Zach says:

    Joy you can stop covering everyone knows they did they do it to every teams fans no body likes Stratford because of these few individuals everyone from every team has said it this was just the first time it was posted and it was a great and very accurate article

  15. Shaun says:

    The fan who gave the finger has been doing this everywhere for a number of years. …I’m from Stratford and I have saw him scream at the visiting team bench, fans and game 5 giving the finger to the waterloo bench and fans it was disgusting….I understand there are fans like this everywhere as I officate hockey and see it all the time. There should be some punishment for him no questions asked

  16. After reading the comments who have witnessed this fan, I am embarrassed that I tried to defend him. They were kind to my Mom, I will give them that, but in no way to I condone that behaviour and it certainly must be true. I did take exception to some of the comments about most Stratford Fans being bad, I guess because we just go to cheer them on and would not insult any opposing team or their fans. Hopefully, now any offenders will take note and clean up their act

  17. Mary says:

    My husband and I have been season ticket holders for over 25 years and will cheer for the Cullitons to the end but we are also embarrassed by the antics of some fans the man in question is one. We hate to be painted with the same brush as him and some others. There is no place in sports for this type of activity and we truly hope the executive do something about this. I do agree that this happens in all rinks by other fans as well but that is not as excuse or a reason to continue.
