Anyone else not wearing their NHL gear due to the lockout?
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 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.
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.
