Excellent post kev fist. I agree completely. We still have a few atl based posters here on hf jets and they are awesome. Love the support. I dont blame any atl fan that wants nothing to do with the jets though I couldnt support coyotes either.

This is a fine article but they should have stressed more that it wss the vocal minority whi creates these problems (as well as the phoenix winnipeg rift). Many here are supportive of atl and we do have many "southern" hockey supporters here like me and guerzy that understand how hockey can and does work in the south. And id say a LARGE portion of hockey fans here wanted new name and identity (like me). However we do not yell as loud as the vocal minority.
