But let's go back to where the whiteout came from to begin with.
During the 1987 playoffs, the Flames were doing what they called 'the sea of red' - fans filled the seats wearing red. In response, Jet fans decided to wear white - which I think was more in reference to what the team wore at home.
But the home town Flames ALSO wore white - Red is what they wore at away games.
Basically what I'm saying is that it's not an issue if the current Jets wear blue at home now. We can still wear white as fans.
SO BRING IT TNSE!
WHITEOUT RETURNS! EST 1987. ACCEPT NO IMITATIONS.
TNSE couldn't stop the whiteout even if they wanted to.
