T-shirts, hats, and jerseys.

I don't know, I'm so mad at everyone involved over this lockout. The only hockey I get to see is my GM Connected league. It makes me angry and its not really a protest, but i feel like the NHL doesn't deserve to be represented in the public by me anymore.

I haven't worn anything, except for the Flyers winter classic beanie last winter when I was out running, since I was a kid. So, still not wearing anything.

trying not to, it's hard since 75% of my wardrobe is comprised of t-shirts and hats that were giveaways at games lol

No, I still wear everything, the lockout doesn't magically stop me from being a fan of the game and of my team.

I'm still a fan, but I'm not advertising for them. No gear worn, nothing NHL being purchased for Christmas or otherwise.

I only have Panters hat (don't ask me why), and my little brother took it away from me. So I wear my ushanka instead => yeah, I'm with the thread starter.

I still wear hats and shirts like always. And I hear Bettman and the gang have noticed and therefore will not end the lockout because they know I still care. Sorry about that.

I said its not a protest pal. I'm not expecting people to look at me and say "Wow he's NOT wearing his Hawks gear? He must be protesting the lockout!"

I'm not expecting Bettman and/or Fehr to read this and think "Wow he's NOT wearing his Hawks gear? He must be protesting the lockout! We should end this lockout right now actually. Thank you Hot Fuss for bringing this to our attention. We didn't realize how bad this lockout was until we saw you not wearing your Hawks hat. Thank you so much! LOCKOUT OVER everybody! Fuss just showed us we were wrong! Sorry for wasting your time."

The NHL doesn't deserve my public support until this nonsense lockout is over with IMHO, simple as that.

I still wear my Devils scarf. I won't spend one dollar on the team. Devils players are doing signings around here... and unless they announce that proceeds go to Hurricane Sandy victims (which they aren't) I am not thrilled about giving them my money... so no thanks.

Nah, I've worn my Howard t-shirt a few times, my zip-up Wings hoodie, and my front license plate has the Wings on it too. Definitely not purchasing anything though.

Well I put on my old and battered Cammalleri tshirt when doing dirty manual work, if that counts.

Hats, yes, although not as often.

Jerseys, hell no.

I try to wear more vintage (Lemieux, 90's jerseys) and avoid current players or styles of jerseys.

I haven't worn anything with NHL logos on it since the lockout and I have lots. I miss my favorite Habs draft hat but I just feel wrong wearing anything until this gets sorted out. Still a fan and will flock back but this is my own mini protest.

Don't wear stuff that often other than at games, but I'm avoiding it in general. I still drink coffee and tea out of my All-Star Game and Heritage Classic mugs...but I do that in the privacy of my own home.

I'm more conscious about not buying new stuff, rather than how I use the existing stuff I already have.

Only NHL thing I have on is a Thrashers flag I got for free a couple weeks ago at work that's currently on my car.

Much rather support the Cowboys and Blue Jays

Only wore jerseys to games, so no there, but my Jets hoodie is too comfortable not to wear now that it's getting colder.

Yep. I have a Devils polo that occasionally makes its way out into public usage.

I always get some doofus asking, "how's that hockey season going? OH RIGHT."
