You monster! We need to provide the illusion that these are Coyotes fans buying the tickets!

Though I will say that a decent number of Wings fans do wear white to the arena:

don't see too much red.


The Wings fans were largely clumped up in one section last playoff season.

Enjoy it while it lasts. Next year if the teams meet again, chances are they will be playing at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Canada,

Wings fans still travel well, champ. Not going to be like it is in Phoenix but we will be in the MTS Centre or wherever we play next playoff year. Doesn't change a lot here.

Cleary's expression on the bench after the goal is priceless.

Hopefully there is a sea of red of there tomorrow.

EDIT- a sea of red in Phoenix.

Uh, isn't this the same arena where they wanted to charge Red Wings fans extra for tickets to the game?

I thought that was Pitts.... or maybe they just tried to keep red wings fans out.

I remember reading this article last year and my response is no different. Asking Red Wings fans to put aside their allegiance for the supposed sake of helping a fan-base look less pathetic is dumb as s***. This moron should never have been allowed to post such utter garbage.

Sidenote: Those who've been around the past 6 years know I don't go off in my posts unless I feel uber-strong about it. This is one of those cases.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I was going to wear my red franzen to game 3 and my white cleary to game 4 (only other red I have is Z and I dont want to break that out until he returns). But after reading this I got a new red lids stitched up just to rock for game 4.

I'll be at game 4, in red.

My companion, a disgruntled Avs fan who "hates but respects the hell out of the Wings", refuses to wear red but has been threatened against wearing white. *grin*

It is indeed. There was "premium pricing" as they called it for Wings games if you weren't a season ticket holder. If I recall correctly, it was more than double normal face value.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I'm not sure about playoff tickets but I went to the home opener in Phoenix against the Wings and got lower bowl, I think it was about row 13 for $82. I really don't know what they normally cost, but that's comparable to our games here so it was a pleasant surprise as I thought they would be $100+

Perhaps your companion could wear black? It would kill the whiteout without besmirching the integrity of the Winged Wheel.

Have fun at the game.
