Then this happened. The entire unveiling process was a joke. Whoever was behind that should be embarrassed and probably fired. Steve Ott couldn't take it, and he's on the team. Props to him for ending the childish nonsense. Now that we see the final product of the circus of the unveiling, we are even more angered with the result. A jersey that does not represent Buffalo.
We've been through so much this team. Promises made and broken. Hopes raised and crushed. We deserve better. We, the fans, deserve respect. Year after year we continue to support the Sabres monetarily and with our hearts and what should we get in return? Another new jersey that we are expected to go out and buy? One that is so pitiful it is the laughing stock of the entire NHL. No. That we will not allow.
People will claim there's no reason to get so upset, it's just a jersey, if you don't like it, don't buy it. It's about more than that. It's about telling Terry Pegula and the entire Sabres organization to LISTEN! Listen to your fans. We are telling you that this jersey has to go because we love the team. We don't want them wearing that. It doesn't represent us. We are as much a part of the team as the players, coaches and owner. We are the heart and soul. Listen to us and get rid of this jersey. You owe it to us.
