Lol the yotes are the winnipeg jets :lol:


I think he knows that. He is probably implying a change of city and team name and everything should possibly render a new tradition.

The wings away jersey is white anyways, the whiteout fails when the colored jersey is the home jersey

jollymania, my thoughts exactly, why white out your home arena when your team is Red?

Wouldn't you wear red in support of them, seeing as every teams road jersey is a majority white!

Funny s***!

They should just focus on showing up!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

just a heads up to yotes fans, the white-out was started in Winnipeg so that tradition isn't even theirs either. i would know, the last season the jets were here they gave out white shirts before the game. the coyotes know nothing of tradition. they can't even keep their team in the same city in Airzona. if i'm not mistaken, they aren't even in phoenix anymore are they?

they are still in Phoenix, they switched arenas because their current one is better suited for hockey.

His plan is working, though....he's got us talking. just sayin.

How is his plan working? If anything, this ridiculous article is only going to further push Wings fans to wear Red to the games.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

Interesting since I just moved from LA and listened to all the whining when the Angels changed their name to whatever. I believe I've read here that as part of the negotiations with Ice Edge or Dorf or whomever ends up with the team, the current arena owner the City of Glendale wants the name changed to either the Glendale or AZ Yotes. So technically, if they stay they will be moving.

I made the point in a comment on the article, but since the capacity at Jobing.com arena is 17,799 and the Yotes average 11,989 in attendance a game, if they sold out even one game this year, they likely had another game where they only managed to get 6,179 people in the door.

I've been to a box lacrosse game here in Washington state that had more people in attendance.

Great fanbase.

Here's a better idea: get the f*** out of Arizona.

I'm sure Wings fans in Phoenix will be sympathetic to this after the Coyotes organization has gouged them for years by jacking up prices for the Detroit games since those were the only games sure to sell out...

pretty much what i was getting at. and the only jet on the coyotes is doan...though we would have liked lombardi on the jets all those long years back. i was a wings fan back then anyways, as i have been my whole life, but it was nice having a team to cheer for. the last days with selanne, doan, zhamnov, tkachuk, khabibulin, numminen and so on...not a bad team to watch. they went to phoenix and the whole team fell apart very quickly.

I either want to see the place riddled with Wings jerseys ala regular season, or I want Phoenix to be very successful with their sell-out white out ambitions and redevelop the late 90's fanbase.

Stay Away, Red Wings fans


A WhiteOut shouldn't be stained with pockets of red. The interior of Jobing.com Arena should not resemble Santa Claus with a bloody nose.

In other words: Stay away, Red Wings fans.

With the Coyotes hoping to win the franchise's first playoff series since 1987, this is an appeal to all hockey fans in the Valley.

If you're a Coyotes fan, resist the urge to sell your tickets for profit, even if you're leaving good money on the table. Already in Nashville, the marketplace has been overwhelmed by Chicagoans hoping to cheer their Blackhawks on the road. The Predators see their home-ice advantage slipping away, and they haven't even played a game yet.

If you are a transplant from Michigan, hockey is in your DNA. But you live in Arizona, and chances are, you've grown to love what the Valley has to offer. Well, part of the landscape is a hockey team struggling for survival. So do the right thing. Keep the Red Wings sweater in the closet, and cheer for the home team. Just this once.

Under normal circumstances, a former Coyotes executive said there could be up to 5,000 Red Wings fans in the building for Games 1 and 2. But this year has been anything but normal. And to abandon the Coyotes now would be shirking your civic duty.

For one series, capitalism can wait.

I guess wing's fan could wear away jerseys, but what would be the fun in that. :lol:


It's pretty laughable that he thinks his team doesn't need the Wings fans' money. I'd love to see the official Coyotes rebuttal: "Wings fans-- please buy tickets and concessions! Pay for parking! Enjoy our excellent promotions. Please, we beg you-- bring friends as well"

Just for that I would paint my face red, bring one of those goal light helmets Posted Image, and wave a Red Wings flag.
