10. Phillies 2008 – Cars flipped, luggage shop looted, that’s just Phillies fans being Phillies fans.
9. Lakers 2000 – Minor on the injury and arrest front but 2 police cruisers burned. But by LA standards, this riot was a walk in the park.
8. Broncos 1998 & 1999– After winning Super Bowl 32 and 33, Broncos fans overturned cars and vandalized buildings. A few dozen arrested
7. Oilers 2006 – 15 people arrested, 9 fires set, and 1 urination.
6. Boston (Redsox and Patriots 2004 or Celtics 2008) – Unfortunately, only 1 person killed in the riots that followed the 2004 AL Pennant, the 2004 Super Bowl, and 2008 NBA Championship.

3. Canadiens 1993 – After the Habs won the cup, fans poured onto St. Catherine AKA Stripper Street and destroyed 47 police cars. 168 people were injured. $10M in damages.
2. Pistons 1990 – 7 people died by gunfire and stabbing. 140 arrested and since this was Detroit, about $4 in damages.
