Occupy The Bridge
Fans are organizing a protest at Bridgestone Arena on October 13, which should be Opening Night in Nashville. Is this the way to make your voice heard, or does it instead validate what Gary Bettman has said, that the fans are desperate for hockey and will come back no matter what? In my opinion, fans must speak with their actions and stop spending money with the NHL if they want to get the attention of the NHL & NHLPA.
