I can call into radio shows to plug the site and stuff but it won't have the financial wherewithal to support billboards, commercials, etc. Most likely, even if by some stroke of luck some rich Hawks fans made a few huge donations, Wirtz's political connections and power would probably thwart anything big like that. This would have to be a grassroots movement, strength in numbers.

This is far from true. Having 50 people there would show you just how much traction they've lost with fans, and how little we really give a ****. It would speak volumes that only 50 people even miss the game enough to turn out and voice their displeasure.

Apathy speaks much louder than anger.

No...it would show that fans are smart enough to not waste their Saturday evening going to a pointless event that won't make any difference.

And not like this thing is widely publicized, it only speaks for, what, half a percent of Hawks fans who even knew it was taking place. If a real media outlet got behind this and promoted the **** out of it, and no one came, that'd be one thing. But no one will even know this thing is taking place unless they see it on the 10 o'clock news that night.
