It's not civilized enough to go there with an out of town jersey, and I say that with all due respect.
There's a degree of risk in going to any arena in any sport while wearing a visiting team's jersey. There are a few fans who act out their hostilities by identifying with their local team. Disrespecting their team is tantamount to disrespecting their families. I once wrote an article that satirized the Broad Street Bully mentality and, predictably, the editor received a lot of hate mail. Little did those fools know that I had credentials to visit the Flyers dressing room and see their phony heroes parading around in the buff. It's been a long time since I visited a dressing room or wrote a hockey article but I still remember the hate mail.
