Flames fans display their own hypocrisy...

Jamie McLennan was officially run out of town after a brutal season last year and an even worse preseason (a save percentage under .740 and a GAA over 4). There wasn't a fan that wanted him around and the radio shows were hot with who the new backup was going to be after Sutter made a deal. Sutter even went as far as to say that he was definitely going to bring in a new backup, one that can be trusted to fill in for Turek. "Noodles" was persona non-grata in Flameland. Now, after a game and a half, and getting credit for two wins, McLennan is a favorite son in Calgary and a player that the fans couldn't see the team getting rid of. What ever happened to conviction? What ever happened to sticking to your guns? Boo-birds and swingers of brick-bats to cheering throngs and hoisters of bouquets over-night? What the hell is going on in the world of sports?
