It's Time To #FireTambo & #FireLowe

We really need to rally the troops on this one. We stood by this rebuild for several years now, collecting three 1st overall picks in the process. But a rebuilding team needs to show progress and we look like we're regressing this year. Outside of tweaking 4th liners and bottom pairing Dmen, management hasn't done a thing in free agency or via trades to help turn this club into a winner. We hold some power as loyal fans....make your voices heard! Let ownership know it's time for a change.

Please Tweet out a #FireTambo & #FireLowe message.

Or season ticket holders can boycott the next home game (or 10). I for one will be leaving 2 seats empty.

We need to do more than tweet. It is time that we let them know how the fans feel at home games. If there is anyone that cares about the Oiler's future, we need to remove the problem at the root. Rexall has been a morgue lately and the only sounds I can ever hear are sighs. This has to change, something has to be done, this organization is so pathetic they need the fans to do something for them before anything gets done.

It was time to fire Kevin Lowe a long time ago. It was time to fire him before Tambo came into the fold. It was time to fire him before Mac-T was hired. This guy has been more poisonous to our organization than Shane Corson was.

I honestly would love to do this. $400 for a pair of front row seats to the worst show in the NHL... pretty hard to let that go though.

But the management and ownership need that kind of message sent. Right now, they can sleep easy knowing that no matter how badly they bumble things, Oilers fans will keep buying tickets, merchandise, etc.

I'd say if you're going to go to games, at least don't buy any merchandise/concession/etc.

Yu have no idea what Lowe does or does not do right now.
What you do know is he got them the SCF final with MacT.
But of course, alot of the tall foreheads blamed MacT for all the teams woes.
Hows that going?

I remember getting that uneasy feeling the day they announced he was taking over for Slats....I never thought it would go nuclear though....

Ditto re: Quinn, then Renney, and soon Krueger will have the pleasure of infamy here (well, moreso than he already has... HFBoards visitors are pretty prone to blaming everyone under the sun).

Lowe has said himself that he has the final say on player personnel moves, so ya, we kinda know what he does.

Also, nobody would hire Mact for a NHL head job except this incompetent organization. So its going just fine. Perhaps you need to look in the mirror and measure your own forehead?

Sorry this team is doomed. The man at the top is a clueless twit of a fawning fan boy owner. It all starts at the top.

Next we have Lowe sho should have been fired years ago instead of promoted.

Then we have Tambellini who is a no guts, no glory crap gm who's majority of moves have stunk.

Then we have a move that should have had this fan base in an utter up roar but as usual was happily lapped up, that being MacT. A guy that should have had his ass fired but was gently let go and proceeded to fail in getting a major job with any team in the league all this time. Of course the Oilers bring him back.

They dump Rennie and hire a guy who seems to have no game plan at all, though he is a good talker. The players look throughly confused and paralyzed.

We then have just an atrocious duo of assistants, Smith who had one year as an assistant before being punted to scouting and Bucky who had to be pulled from the minor league club because he seemed to not be able to find his ass with both hands.

No matter what they oilers due they are set up for failure again because if they fire Tambo either Lowe or MacT will take over. Both atrocities. If Krueger gets canned MacT takes over. I actually think mact already has his hands all over this team coaching and strat wise.

In the end all the garbage down the ladder is meaningless because we have a fool of an owner who values his boy hood dreams over the fans and good name of the team.

Fire Daryl Friggin Katz.

A message to who?

As long as the money keeps rolling in, Katz will only fly out of Vancouver to confront city council or walk up to the podium on draft day.

If you are serious about sending a message, then you will decline to renew your seats.

I'd like to see this quote, because Lowe was also quoted as saying he doesn't go to Tambellini and hand out advice, he lets Tambellini come to him if he needs it.

That said, I would fire the whole group of management if I were Katz, but this just seems like one of those things people spread around the internet just cause it makes sense that it would be true.

Its A message to the players management that this team is not worth watching would rather throw away 400 bucks than sit and suffer 3 hrs watching crap. Also Katz loses money Jersey sales so forth.

I will literally help organize some sort of movement... I'll supply pitchforks, torches and everything... something has to be done about these ****ing bums. I know it's just hockey but its more than that for us in Edmonton. It's better for the city, it's fans and public at large if they're doing well and having success. This is an absolute joke.

Lowe should be kicked to the curb immediately and never be allowed to return in any capacity to the Oilers hockey club. Should fade away forever pretty much. His rep has been permanently tarnished from this gongshow. He is a complete and utter embarrassment, failure to this city and the Edmonton Oilers. He should be ashamed. Punted ASAP.

As for Tambellini, there are no words. Well, I guess there are. He is ****ing pathetic and should be banished from this organization, this city, forever. Should go to his house, force him on a plane and remove him from Edmonton immediately. My anger and frustration towards him knows no bounds.

**** Tambellini and Kevin Lowe. Be done with them already. I wish they would leave and be gone forever. Don't like Katz either.

Tambellini has come right out and said he has to get approval on moves from lowe and above.

Yup, you got me. Just making stuff up again!

Wake up. He is the president of hockey operations. Perhaps you think he twiddles his thumbs all day?

Katz gets a share of all jersey sales league wide. A boycott of the Oiler stores in Rexall would literally do nothing.

Dont get so aggressive man. I just thought MacT was the cause of the Oilers woes. Kinda like Nolan was , and guys like that. You know, cause of course if you dont get hired (who even knows who applies for jobs, or why they were not hired, except for the brilliant minds) you must be a bad coach .
Its just shocking to me cause I was convinced it was MacT who was at fault for everything.
It wasnt?
