I will go and always said I would once the tickle fight ended with Donald and Gary.

I am mostly going to wait for playoff tickets before I blow my cash on regular season tix

I'm a broke college kid at the moment so probably not. Maybe a cute girl or the fam will get me a pair of tickets for my birthday on the 30th though...

I'll be at the game, but may remain very quiet during the initial introductions. A personal little protest to what they put us through. They won't see it, but screw'em.

This, absolutely, the employees and businesses who were affected I feel the most bad for, and couldn't be happier that they are back as well as the average fan.

For me, absolutely. They have me for life, and I'm not going to let a few i**** ruin my love of this great sport. Call me a sucker I don't care, I love this game and thrilled it's back.

But I'll probably find myself at at least one game.

I was planning on driving down to St Paul for a game. Not anymore.

I'll watch most of the games on tv though.

I also share jets season tickets with a buddy and I've told him he can buy my share if he wants. I'll maybe go to one game and thats it.

I'll believe it when I see it though.

Speaking of that, I'd better order mine haha

If I'm able to find/purchase tickets, I will be there. I can't stay away as much as I should.

I'd love to see some form of organized protest, even if it's only for one game. But it won't happen because we, the fans, are nothing but dumb cattle. They'll throw us some scraps, then milk us, and milk us, and milk us some more. And all we are gonna do is stand there, chew those scraps, and moo. And I'm gonna stand there and moo just like everybody else, and I'm gonna like it... Because I love this game, and I love this team.

So yeah, I'm still angry, but I'll be back. Moo!

This article says that fewer than 10 percent of Wild season ticket owners asked for the refund that was offered during the lockout.

As for me attending games...... maybe. It will have to be in St. Louis or somewhere near Indiana

The reason you won't see anything is outside of those of us on here how would you get word out to do a protest of any sort?? People are going to go to these games simply because it is in St. Paul and more family oriented (IMO) than going to a TWolves game (albeit cheaper). Would be nice if everyone wore black and didn't cheer for the starting lineup and then turned their backs when the puck dropped.

I think it is funny how certain people from this board believe they are magically a nielson or other rating determining household and won't even be tuning into the games on tv.

Hmmm. "Let's post during 80% of my free time on HF then not even watch the games." Sounds about right.

We aren't dumb cattle. Do we get paid millions of dollars to work? Do we get to stay in 4 star hotels on every roadtrip? Do we get to fly first class or have a private jet for every time we travel? Do we get to buy Jaguars with the loose change that we find in our couch cushions?

If you answered yes to these questions, give me your number.

But I'm guessing the answer is no. According to Scottie Upshall, the NHL continued to treat the players like cattle. If that is what it's like to be a cow, then we sure as heck aren't it.

Truth be told I really won't watch many of the games. In my case though it has nothing to do with "boycotting", it's simply because I work from about 6-9 p.m. every weekday and don't get back to my dorm til' around 9:20-9:40. Then I'm hungry from work and I go eat and that takes up another half hour. Maybe I can catch some last parts of West Coast games and weekend games of course, but that's about it.

Amen.
