We can embarrass ourselves nationally but not locally since SportsSouth is not covering it. However, there is a free preview of NHL Network this week (check local listings) so you can still watch it if you want.
Nice of them to throw the renewal info up the day before the town hall. While teams are slashing ticket prices left and right to get fans in the door the Thrashers have decided to go the other way by keeping prices flat almost across the board. That surely sounds like a winning strategy.
Whether you agree with it or not, lets just fill the damn place.
One of the many bad things about the Thrashers stinking, is that the building is never full. Philips Arena is a heck of alot of fun when the place is packed. The boos are louder, the AWWWWs when we almost score a goal are louder, and the place goes nuts when we score.
Let's treat ourselves to a sold out building for this piss poor team at least once more this year.
Let's show the hockey world that we do care, unlike some parts of the organization.
I was unable to go tonight, but from what I heard, the attempted protest was a total bust.
From what I have heard, I have to agree. I could not watch the game because Dish Network somehow stopped showing the free NHL Network preview right before my DVR was going to record it. I thought I heard a Atlanta Spirit Sucks chant early in the game on radio, really not sure though.
I must admit, the owners or DW are well read. To throw Ilya out at the STH Townhall meeting right after someone asked a question about the owners, pretty savvy stuff. Bread and Circuses to appease the crowd is straight out of the Roman Emperors playbook.
I got a lot of interest in my signs from the Montreal fans. One lady told me the spirit lawsuit was making the news up there simply because it's hockey related. I told her she probably knows more about it than we do. BTW, that wasn't me you saw. My RDS design was veritcal
Maybe the next protest we should all sit together. Kudos to the boys though. Good, solid effort for 60 minutes this time.
I was going to go to the Calgary game, but NONE of the owners showed up to the STH meeting. I'm not paying to protest, I'm just boycotting. Haven't been to a game since early November. We're a team that's sooooo cheap that we won't send one-way contract guys to Chi when they deserve it (EC). Nonsense.
