IMO these "boycotts" are a silly hollow threat.

The vast majority of people who go to games (in any sport) are going to go for additional reasons besides being a fan of the sport,

The family who buy tickets to take the kids to for a night out

The "got tickets from work" crowd

The my "cool girlfriend/wife" likes hockey and it beats going to a chick flick

The my friend had an extra ticket fan

The bottom line is that if there is a game being played people are going to go and there are simply not enough hard core fans who can stay away long enough to make a "statement"
