I know the st holders will say they spend the most money and have the most dedication, so deserve it the most. it just seems a bit disingenuous to get fans excited about going to the game and having a chance to win, to have the team pander to their season ticket base instead.

Oh well. We got free heroine beers and 55% off concession. The oilers store looked like new Orleans after the hurricane

Have to agree with those complaints. Like you said, not because STH were rewarded primarily (that only makes sense with the amount they pay), but because the team was needlessly vague about it. I don't think (or at least I hope not) fans that buy a game here and there would be disappointed or complaining if the team had just said all fans get discounted food, merch and whatever prize was for all fans, and the rest is for STH.

I just won one of the 93 jerseys off Ched Trivia, pretty sweet, but can't decide which player to pick.

Some obscure player from the early '80s.

Go big or go home.

For me meeting the player is just as big a prize as the jersey. So its Eberle, Yakupov or Smid for me as those are the 3 I'd most like to meet.

Some suggestions. Jani Rita, Jason Bonsignore, Lee Fogolin, Zdeno Ciger, Joquin Gage, or the ever amazing Eldon "Pokey" Reddick

The trivia question answer was Jason Bonsignore, so I should probably pick him, but only if I could meet him and kick him in the nuts 64 times.

I'd have a hard time passing up a Gretzky. Would be cool meeting a player but I think that's what I'd go with.

I kind of agree, but my jersey would be a Kurri one. Always been my favorite player since I was like 4 years old. My dad used to work for Fuhrs dad and I got to go in the dressing room one time, Kurri immediately came up to me and started passing a puck back and forth with me on the floor (I had a little mini stick), all I can remember now is he just seemed to have a very friendly smile. But from that day forward I was a huge Kurri fan.

Not to be a dick, but I've been mentioning this since the days of Bill Tuele.

It's not a seat draw for the free swag. It's a STH sest draw.

The organization simply does not show that it cares about non-STHers. Never has. Never will.

I wanted to buy an Oilumni jersey during the big reunion years ago. I actually had to try several times. The last time I called in I impersonated a STH who was buying a jersey for his ailing grandfather, and I tore a strip off the rep who had basically laughed in my face the previous times that I honestly enquired as a mere fan.

From that point on, I've kept my views of the PR part of the organization (classless, inept, unworthy) separate from my views of the players (individual basis) or team management/coaching (ugh), or the other parts of the organization that really do a great job.

Personally I always liked Matti Hagman whose claim to fame seemed to be that he was here to teach Jarri Kurri english.

As a STH who won nothing, should I be upset that these STH heavy giveaways were won by people who buy one game a year? Or should I suck it up and be thankful I even had a chance? Seems like I should suck it up just like the non-STH complaining.

Giveaways were hilarious.

"The 4 fans who stand out and jump out of their seat get 4 free jerseys signed by anybody!!!"

2 guys they picked were picking their nose. Just sitting there and they put them on the jumbotron lol.

It's like somebody told them, "Hurry it up guys! We on;y have 10 sec left to pick the last 2!"

What a joke. Just like the Oilers play for the first. It did seem like the prizes went to season ticket holders only.

I really don't care though. I have 4 seasons tickets that I sold and I bought packs on top to go with lots of friends. Even the Oiler store lineup was hilarious. Why anybody waited that long makes no sense.

Exactly. Although when someone outside the Edmonton area wins the 50/50 I get upset lol.

other then the free beer, and seeing yakupov/schultz scoring their first NHL goal, it was a joke game and would of preferred to stay home watch on TV and get a good sleep instead of 4 hours for an 8am class today lol.
