So, Sabres forward Steve Ott states, as amicably as possible, “Home ice advantage can be real and fans play a role. You know that super fun thing you do when things are going really well? Maybe try doing that when they aren’t going well, too. It could help.”
It’s no surprise that those who thinking booing the team has a positive impact on anyone or anything miss the point entirely.
As dumb as booing may sound, the justification for it sounds ever dumber.
@ottern9ne its even harder to cheer for a shit team

Even harder than what?

“We can inspire you? Well, maybe you should inspire us to inspire you! Ha!”
Yeah, we’ve come to expect them. Why do think we’re having this conversation?
BUT WE HAVE TO BOO!
Right, but you’re missing the point.

@ottern9ne If boos had name tags you would know who they were directed at.Otter you’re in good favor with this town,keep up the good work!

So, you’re not trying to ruin the atmosphere for me? You’re only doing that to my teammates, coaches, front office, owner, and the rest of the fans? I stand corrected. I’m now inspired.
So it’s Ryan Miller’s postgame interviews that are inspiring the boos? Glad we’re having this talk. It’s tough to pick that up in the context of the game.
This is actually true.
Yep. So maybe cheer/chant/inspire rather than boo/confuse/annoy? Just a thought. Do what you want.
Is this about Dick Jauron now?
@ottern9ne if you guys can get a playoff spot, or hell, get a nice win streak going, you’ll hear a deafeningchant, it’ll give you chills.

Thank you! After we make the playoffs, we’ll certainly appreciate the energy that you will retroactively supply during the regular season that will have just concluded!
@ottern9ne start winning more and you will hear the FNC like you never heard anything like it.We are not Dallas fans. We know hockey

The booing only SOUNDS really stupid. It’s actually very astute and rooted in the community’s exceptional base of hockey knowledge.
