On the radio today, coming home from work, I heard Pete Maher, Pope, declare that the players didnt like it when they got boo'd on home ice.
Ill admit, I dont go to all the Flames games I want to. I dont like to pay 50+ dollars for nosebleeds, especially when the club Im paying to see has a nasty habit of showing up for 1 outta 3 periods. I would be fine with the horseshit lack of effort if I got a 2/3 discount on my ticket, but I dont. If 'shelling out' for nosebleeds pisses me off, I can only imagine how some of the season ticket holders feel. We got people in this city spending well above 10k for their season tickets, to watch a team with a disconcerting lack of 'give a fuck'.
The players dont like getting boo'd? THE FANS DONT LIKE WATCHING PRIMADONNA COUNTRY CLUBBERS HALF ASS THEIR WAY THROUGH GAMES!
Word to your moms, Flames, but the people in Calgary work for a living. We expect you to do the same. Your mad you got boo'd? The fans are mad we just shelled out 100k or more (a full house at the average ticket price) to watch the players embarrass themselves. Its a double piss off because this current group of players, from the outside, doesnt seem to possess an ounce of pride. If they did, they wouldnt lose NINE in a row.
Who on this current roster do the fans 'owe' something too? Iggy, Reggie, and Kipper. That is it. Those guys have been through the wars, as the Romans were want to say. The rest of this roster is comprised of draft busts, free agent busts, and Gio. Everyone loves Gio, so dont boo him. The rest of the roster has no connections to my heart, or most of the fans hearts. Maybe Prust and Pardy have wormed in there, because they got some sandpaper in them. Other than that?
If the Flames want to be treated with respect, they should start treating the fans with some respect, and actually show up for a home game.
Furthermore, I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.
