I did a quick twitter poll last night asking Oiler fans if they have spent any money on NHL related stuff since the lockout began.
Surprisingly, 100% of the people who responded said they have not spent a dime, myself included. I figured a small handful would have said yes, but that never happened. Some folks said they paid for their seasons tickets, but to me that doesn't count because you have to pre pay and have that setup long before the lockout even started.
I find it awesome to hear that the fans are all on the same page. No new hats. No new jerseys. No new anything.
I believe by not making the NHL money while there is a stoppage, the more we show the league we are better than how they are treating us right now.
I applaud Oiler fans, and I hope other fans of the other teams are feeling and acting the same way. We do matter. We can be noticed.
