To Red Wings fans in Arizona:

Detroit fans: If you can't stay away, please wear white
Regrets? We have a few. By stumbling down the stretch and leaving numerous points on the table, [ coughed up home-ice advantage and slid into a sticky first-round playoff series against Detroit.
As always, the opponent and the task feels enormous.
So, a plea to all fans living in the Valley:
If you must go to the games in Arizona, please wear white. We don't want outsiders thinking we can't sell out After all we've been through - from bankruptcy hearings to relocation threats - the last thing we need is more national embarrassment.
A sea of red at Jobing.com Arena would do just that.
If you're a Detroit fan who otherwise cheers for the Coyotes, understand what this does to your second-favorite team, and how deflating it must be to take the ice for a playoff game and hear:
"Let's go Red Wings!"
By the way, that chant broke out at a Valley restaurant Monday morning.
Yep, it's starting already. And in the end, the have no one to blame but themselves
Ok this is one of the most bizarre things I have seen in awile. Maybe they should ask Red Wings fans in Arizona to cheer when the Coyotes score too!

I live in Las Vegas, and i'm going to game 4. I'm a Wings fan through and through and...
I'm wearing red.
If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

I'm 100% positive that a post like this surfaced somewhere last year too. From what I've seen there, I'd be willing to bet the same guy posted it this year too, only with a few updates.
You can bet that if I were going to any of the games in Phoenix, I'd be wearing one of my red jerseys.

1. Doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result.
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.

Oh and I'd come with a pair of cephalopods strapped to my body as well.
