Florida Panthers fans' depreciation


My colleague Ethan Skolnick had an interesting column out of the Panthers’ 2009-10 season finale at BankAtlantic Center on Sunday. He asked fans what makes them stick with and what they would do to change the fortunes of the hapless team that has now tied for the longest playoff drought in the NHL.

Since that column ran, Skolnick’s been getting other complaints from fans about the post-game fan appreciation festivities, including this one: the T-shirts the team threw to fans after the game? They were from Opening Night 2007! Read his Season Ticket blog entry on the post-game insult here.
