    That's exactly right. Booing, wearing slogans on shirts, and rants on website mean little if anything to the NHL. Talk with your wallet.

    This is so true. Petitions and protest don't mean squat. The need is for revenue and consumers. If you want to display your displeasure and voice your opinion, you either purchase or you don't.

    what do you think? bet we could with twitter and social media get some sort of thing out there?

    The players and owner need to remember who's dollar they are fighting over...


    send it out to all your friends

    Thanks from Oilers rock 99
    Think about it for a second. The CBA is going to be 8-10 years in length. Do you think anyone will remember about an insignificant fan gesture 10 years down the road. And if I skipped a whole year and got 5 minutes of booing I would feel like I got out of it unscathed. Meanwhile the fans who are booing in the arena are contributing to the revenue pie that they keep talking about.

    I think you guys are missing the idea... it is a quick immediate and very clear message from the fans it would be carried on every sports news everywhere. the media would do the rest just imagine the spin off stories coverage, its is tangable and in the moment perfect for news.

    I think you underestimate the impact of a organized public demonstration in 30 diffrent cities in north america would have...the sponsors will take notice .

    Fans are like toilets to the NHL.

    If there is a serious problem they'll do what they have to do to get us back to normal so that they can get back to seeing how much shit we can take.

    The thing is the decision becomes an individual one. We can all say we will do it, but doing it is a different question. Those who don't want to support the NHL will not buy tickets. The people who go are not going to voice anger. They are going because they want to watch hockey.
