I don't know. My attitude on boycott after thinking about it is this: if we boycott, people will just misinterpret it as Tampa Bay not being a hockey market and completely miss the point anyway. We just can't win. Only "smart" Northern markets are allowed to boycott their teams without questioning their appetite for the sport, we dummies in the South have to blindly go to every game in order to prove we deserve a team.

But look at it this way, the more I spent, the more I was saving buying products that I would have bought next year for full price - thus hurting the players and owners. Yeah, that's a lame excuse - I'll just buy more crap next year.
Donnie, Donnie, Donnie. You surrendered when you showed up.

No doubt. I was afraid if I went, the first player I met would be greeted with "So...what the fuck took you fuckers so fucking long? Fuck!!"...and it'd go downhill from there

I have season tickets and since they didn't refund the entire amount, I'm kind of stuck going to games. i went yesterday because I wanted the stuff they promised me.

I'm even more ashamed to admit that I bought stuff with the current logo.

Interesting note is the rare back to back home games on Feb 1 and 2 (Friday and Saturday nonetheless).

I also like that we end the year at home. Lets hope those last 3 games have playoff implications

Maybe those games won't have implications because we have a playoff seed all wrapped up? /wishful thinking

They could be playing for home ice advantage.
