Fan Frustration Boils Over Into Small Anti Wang Demonstration!

Tonight, in the beginning of the second period there was a small yet loud crew that held a sorta impromptu demonstration against Islanders owner Charles Wang. Chants of "Wang Must Go" filled the air for a few minutes, with the fans attempting to show displeasure with his management of the team.

Fans have grown frustrated with him because amongst other things, his "circumvention" of the cap mainly with unattainable bonuses and buyouts, to his stubborn attitude in certain areas both on and off the ice, and some even went as far as to say that his interview before the Ottawa game last week was basically a middle finger to Islander fans because he said that were ok with the results of this season because the coach and GM will be back. Additionally, he didnt make it seem like the team would be much better next season through off season improvements. Yet, he wants to raise season ticket prices and take away perks, among other things.

Good job by the fans involved showing unity amongst themselves for a common cause and I have a funny feeling the group will get bigger as the time goes on.

If you would like to see a video of their, "demonstration" you can find it on our facebook page. Also the official site for the group can be found on our sidebar.
