God I love post's like this. I know it's mostly hyperbole but if a jersey switch would cause you to not be a fan anymore...you really have to examine if you were a fan in the first place.

and I will amend my jersey idea just a bit. Instead of Colorado down the front on the white version it would be "AVALANCHE" in Blue lettering. Maybe outlined in red and black.

I don't know why but I can't stand the way he sings the national anthems.
I dunno Schroeder has grown on me I didn't used to like him but I do now. I'm not a fan of the rotating anthem singers in general though. If you find a guy that works...stick with it.

A change in the Pepsi Center and how they manage the entertainment aspect of the game could use a dramatic change.
Dater complains about the same thing. But really what do you do other than maybe change up the music they play and doing some new pre-taped skits. You are there to be entertained by the game not by what the mascot is doing. It's part of what's wrong with the Nuggets and the only downside to Rocky. When you go to a Nuggets game watching Rocky is infinatly more interesting than what is going on in the game itself and that's wrong. But don't get me wrong, Rocky is awesome.

If the team was still the powerhouse they were in the late 90's/early 00's nobody would complain about the in-game entertainment because nobody would notice it. To me this stuff doesn't matter.

Schroeder is very popular around Denver. The fans that are regular to Avs games love Schroeder. As a season ticket holder, I do not get tired of hearing Schroeder sing the anthem most nights. He actually sings with emotion. He's definitely not going anywhere anytime soon.

The blueberries are ok, they grew on me a bit, but I'd rather them bring back the old alternates.

I like the blue jerseys but they should stay as an alternate, change the home and away forsure though.
