I don't know... does supporting a perpetual loser make you a "real" fan - or just stupid? I'm from Buffalo. I have a LOT of experience with losing teams. I refuse to monetarily support a team that either is too stupid or cheap to turn a losing product around year after year.... and lets face it - they don't care about the fan one bit- they care about your money, period.
Of course we go to be "entertained". Why else
would you go or watch? To prove that you are "real"?
If they somehow get their collective heads out of their asses.... I won't lie - i'll probably watch.... however I will NOT spend one thin American dime on any NHL/Team related merch, tickets, ANYTHING.
A 40-something game season is complete bull**** anyway. Nothing but an asterisk. A glorified pre-season.
