just solidify a time and place.
I think, but will verify, the date is January 28th (Saturday) at 2 pm at the main gate of Nationwide Arena, for those not familar, on the steps of Buca De Pepo or the Frog Bear... if those are still the correct names..

In other words, the showcase area for THE Nationwide Arena Distict with big screen and everything a sport fan covets...

Great idea!

I recommend you to meet on a ship and tea wit CBJ logo drop into The Scioto River... if not tea with logo you can jackets, hats...

It is luck for players and staff in CBJ that you remember Tea Party and not Defenestrations like Defenestrations of Prague:

I've been calling for something for 13 months. If y'all are serious, I will make the 2 hour drive to CBus. But good luck getting concensus here, people will piss and moan over semantics. Next thing you know, someone will call for an email protest instead.

Man, I *really* like this idea and want to be part of it.

Ironically, it's hockey that will likely keep me from being able to get down there. My son has two games and a practice on Saturday, that's the busiest schedule we've ever had outside of tournaments.

EDIT: I doubt it would be this early, but we have a 7:40 am game at the Ice Haus. If anyone is around around an hour after that, we'll definitely stop by.

Hey Hey

Ho Ho

Niles and Priest have got to go

I had told my son that I would go to his out of town, all-day wrestling meet on Saturday, which is his last one of the year. My brother in law, who does not post on these boards, would probably be all over this though, along with a few of his fellow Jackets fans / friends of his. I'll let him know about it since they would likely be able to attend.

Edit: I agree with the sentiment of this thread; something must be done from a fan perspective. The Status Quo should not be the game plan going into next season.

I have nothing going on and would maybe stop by for a few hours or what have you, as the long as the weather cooperated. I'd be the guy the drives around the block once just to see if theres enough people so I'm not one of the only people standing out there....

Meeting most of you would also be nice, some of you, not so much....

Make it in the afternoon and I'll be there and I'll bring some friends. Change is needed and it needs to start at the top.

Aside from those who for some reason feel the need to politicize the effort...

This is the key. Do you want the removal of Howson? Priest? Both? JMac? What is the goal?

And I would make sure other media besides Portzline is alerted, especially TV, which is always looking for footage. You should also contact someone with the team itself.

Lastly, do you need a permit for such activity?

Not trying to douse the flame, just trying to help. I am otherwise occupied on Saturday, so I will not be able to attend.

2pm Saturday? I'm there.

Agree with the Occupy label, we really shouldn't associate with it.

This protest should just be called the CBJ Protest Rally and be done with it.

So we should bring signs and megaphones? I might be able to wrangle 5-10 people. (If that many still care about hockey after what this team has given us for a decade+)

I have my sign ready & laminated. I'll try to get my son to come home from college to attend. But otherwise, there isnt any other CBJ fans in Coldwater Ohio. So I will be coming alone.

Well - there's the rub. Aaron Portzline and 'Credibility' are like the two opposite ends of a magnet. Diametrically opposed.

He just came up with a curent name, he wasnt trying to politicize the event. Call it a protest, call it whatever. What its called isnt the point. Semantics.

Definitely get the R BAR to organize this. If we do that and get the word to press, it could be effective.

Dark Blue Jacket on twitter seems to think it would be a better idea to do this outside of Worthington Industries. I would kind of agree, but I don't think the intention here is to get JMAC to notice, but to get the media to notice and put pressure on the team?

IDK...whatever. Unless we get a couple of thousand people, it won't be THAT huge.

For those who are going, please protest while being stone-cold sober as possible. The intended message will be negated somewhat, if not completely, if everyone shows up ****faced. There will be plenty of time to get ****faced after the protest.

I agree. It's clear, however, that some can't differentiate.

Lori Schmidt either reads this board or is getting tweets, because she just tweeted that "CBJ fans are starting to rumble about an OccupyNationwide effort."

If you put a #CBJ hashtag on it, she'll see it for sure.

My advise : if this does occur, be sure that you have a LARGE crowd showing up. Otherwise, the message sent might be exactly the opposite of what you want.
