People trying apply standards of measurement to their love of the team, or the sport of hockey, or the history/non-history of the city even.
Lock both these threads, they've run their course, nothing good is coming out of them.

Of course new fans and old fans alike will make the playoff experience absolutely great with/without the whiteout, but it does add some serious spice. It really does. Just look at the smiles on people's faces in those old YT clips.
I have not taken issue with either side on the "whither the White-out"; but I do agree with those calling for some peace and moderation here. My previous posts here have had nothing to do with calling for or against the White-out, just wanting to shed light on the beginnings of it.
I would welcome the White-out, but if the majority of fans start some other play-off tradition, I'll get on board. What we have here is a mix of Jets 1.0 tradition lovers and haters, and a collection of old and new fans - why don't we just mix the old traditions (White-out) with the new (True North!) and enjoy the ride?
Regardless of what the fans in attendance wear, we need to make the MTSC the loudest and scariest building to be in for any play-off games (and pray that we should be so fortunate as to witness any play-off games this season).
