It wasn't an insult(or at least intended to be one), as I don't constitute ingrate as a character flaw, just an observational flaw... more along the lines of I didn't think you respected the money these gentlemen have invested to keep this team in Edmonton, and that you were only concerned about what you paid. I would be more inclined to agree with you if this teams situation was a big suprise... it isn't. It has been well documented that this team is building for 2004 and beyond. The team had a lousy start last year, and rebounded to a decent year... I feel the same can happen this year.

8 games is far too early to make harsh criticizms.
I believe the team should be better.

I believe there isn't accountability to the fan here. One the same note, I believe the media won't hold the organization accountable.

I don't want the owners to lose $3 million, I simply want them to provide what is implied by raising ticket prices.

I want more than a decent season.

I've been making harsh criticisms for years now After all, no cup since 90'.

I have loyalty to one thing, the team. Not the organization, and yes, there is a huge difference.

The whole 'charity' idea that people seem to believe about this team really disturbs me.

Barring something drastic, we're not goin anywhere.
