Something Encouraging

Ok guys a bit off topic but just thought I'd ask(hopefully there hasn't been a thread started on this yet). Have you guys noticed an increase in sens fans on road games this year? I personally think there has been just by watching the games on tv. I dunno just seems whenever the sens score you seem to see a decent amount of people up and cheering on the sens in different buildings. I find that encouraging just to see sens fans popping up all over the nhl locations. Even going to College in Lethbridge and living in Sask I have met more sens fans in the last year or 2 then I have all my life. Just curious to see what you guys think?

Sens are a young team(young to the league). A lot of younger fans. In and outside of Ottawa. The fan base is starting to emerge from their cacoons.

I was at the vancouver game last week and was very surprised with how many sens jerseys I saw. Easily took up 10-15% of the lower bowl.

That was one of the games that stood out most to me actually. I remember seeing Greening pot that one then a goop portion of the lower bowl stood up cheering. I was even more pumped when a group of sens fans held up a sign that said Western Sweep of something. lol it was awesome!

Yes, one of the talking heads on the sports radio station in Winnipeg was griping about how terrible it was to see all the Ottawa fans on Tuesday!

It's good to see the team becoming so popular. Should bode well for the future when we become a consistent playoff team again.

Not to be a party pooper or anything, but I think that one of the reasons might be that since everybody expected the Senators to blow tickets for games when Ottawa is the visiting team might be discounted.

Still nice to see our fanbase in other teams arena especially considering that our home games can be pretty brutal when playing other Canadian teams.

Also, I think sens fans are going to start getting a new name for themselves. Kids who grew up with Sens (I was 4 when they came to the league) are now young adults. I don't think Sens fans will be considered bandwagon jumpers anymore

Basically this, as the franchise grow's so will it's core fanbase, i am really looking forward to watching the number of "visible" sens fans explode over the next 10-15 years as the younger generation gains the financial means to purchase more home/away games and feels more comfortable supporting the capital of the country/city they grew up in!

Very true. I was born and raised in Ottawa but live in Mississauga now. I was 7 years old when the Sens first played at the Civic Centre.

Like my man DJ Khaled always says:

"We takin' over, one city at a time!"

The generation of Sens fans who have only cheered for the Sens are finally old enough to have full time jobs and afford a lot more tickets.

Dean and Denis were talking about that, I like it a lot!

I won't be satisfied until we've filled at least half of the ACC or Bell Centre for a game, though.

Agreed, we have been drafting all over the country over recent years so I would have to assume we have some junior follower faithful. Love that we are getting more of a fanbase, very curious on where we stand with places such as Kingston and Sudbury though. Are we finally cutting into the Leafs fanbase in Ontario

I dunno, but it's nice to see our jerseys in their rinks.
