My comment wasn't to stereotype all Buffalo fans, just the special breed we have here in Tampa.
Fair enough. If you've ever experience the arrogant and rude Habs fans, those people down there would seem like nothing.

Sorry but you are wrong. I've been to games vs the Red Sox, Yankees, Cowboys, Leafs, Habs, etc. None are close to Sabres fans.

I have season tickets and decided to stay home rather than deal with them.

In terms of fights and arrests the game one of the ALCS was the worst. In terms of "Jesus christ just shut the **** up" Buffalo "wins".

Ditto, and I've missed a few games for various reasons but only against Buffalo do I stay home because of opposing fans.

Damn, they must be bad to eat tickets. I'd say that's weak fan-hood, but I know how some Buffalo fans act. Not to mention I can hear them on TV right now, they're are *** loud.

By staying home, Buffalo fans are only going to continue to fill the forum. Who cares if they are annoying or whatever. Go and support your team and make other opposing fans feel scared to return.

But then I would have had to pay to park and drive to Tampa to watch this crap.

Maybe they wouldn't be as crappy if they felt like they were playing at home and not in Buffalo. Maybe.

I just think it's dumb that fans from other teams make you guys feel like staying away from your own home arena. You fans in Florida are pretty lucky to be able to see the lightning at St. Pete even if they play bad. The only time I see them live is during the few times they play near where I live up north on an away game. I've been to devil games where there less than 10 of us lightning fans and yet we survive.

I've been to all but 5 home games this year. I've had at the minimum half season ticket packages for 10 frickin years. If I wanna miss one damn game because I'm sick of putting up with loud mouths then I'll miss one game. How bout we start lecturing the people who live here but don't go to games, or go but cheer for the team du jour instead of the Lightning.

I guess having season tickets allows me to miss a game and not feel bad. Besides, I've already switched over to the Office.

You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.

Even if I did go to the game I probably would have left after the short handed goal anyway. Why should I care if the players don't?

Even if Vinik knew nothing about hockey, he couldn't be that blind to see this team needs some serious changes in the FO. These guys look like they use to get beat up for their lunch money....heck maybe they still do.....
