The more people provide their hard earned working dollars to Stan, the more it is ok to remain with the status quo. It really achieves nothing.

Stop giving the ownership of this team money, until it's owner realizes he has a sinking ship. Support the Avs. Support local businesses. At the same time, show this ownership they don't control you like puppets, easily quaffing you of your hard earned currency.

The power is with the fans. The problem in Colorado is there is never enough people behind a cause to make it happen.

Stan & Josh would just tear up a petition, and laugh off something like that, as they look at fans with disdain, and down their noses. If they start making heavy losses, they'll start "to get it".

Sadly we seem stuck with them as owners.
Truth of the matter is, the minute he feels some kinda of pain regarding the AVs attendance the first move would be to limit the number of games available on TV....say hello to blackouts for all games not sold out.
