I grin and bare it. I try to encourage others to do the same. I never said you have to fight everyone and spend every single dollar you have on this team. My points have been that you have to show up to the rink regardless who the opposition is, and yes, you have to support this team financially...otherwise...well...ask Mr. Bryden.
You get VIP packages because THEY WANT YOU TO CONTINUE TO BE A SEASON TICKET HOLDER. That doesn't make you "a better fan".
And why are you bringing up attendance and support? The Senators are SIXTH overall for average attendance in the NHL. The fans of this city support this team just fine, thank you.
