Don't forget to let the sponsors know what you're doing and why. If they lose enough business, they'll put pressure on the NHL which means a lot more to Buttman than a handfull of disorganized fans not attending a few games in a handful of cities. Moreso in Montreal or Toronto or other places where they have a waiting list for people to get in.
Yeah let's boycott Nike..... and buy some Bauer... or Reebok maybe... or should we go with CCM? Wait should I even buy myself any skates after all since they are all competing against each other? No I guess I won't play my favorite sport this winter.
I won't go to any restaurants either since somewhere somehow, all fast food chains are sponsoring at least one NHL team.
If I'm with Rogers, should I cancel my phone contract and go with Bell? Oh wait they too are sponsors.
Nah I guess I'm just gonna buy myself a car and.......... dammit, pretty much every single car company is sponsoring one or multiple teams!
Okay fuk it, I'll remain on my couch and play some video games.... but if I recall, Playstation is a sponsor too, so I can't.
Well I'll go buy some beers and...........
So yeah... we're fuked.
You might wanna reconsider the "just don't buy any tickets" option, right?
