I wish for the fans there that this was true, but it isn't. The queue for season's tickets is huge. The market is so large that I would bet that half your season's tickets holder could walk away and those packages would be gone in a day to new holders. 40+ years without a cup, 8 seasons without playoffs and the team still sells out. Just how bad of a team would Toronto have to ice for the fans to boycott. They could ice their AHL team all season and rabid fans would be thrilled to go watch the future get pummeled nightly.

So I don't think there is a threat there. As for feeling some kind of entitlement for stupidly pumping money into the pockets of Ballard and the Teacher's Union for years, why should that be rewarded?
