Isles fans planning protest for Saturday’s home game

They’ve already planned their chants, like “Wang must sell” and “Snow must go.”

They’ll be wearing their jerseys inside out, and possibly paper bags on their heads.

And they don’t want anyone buying food at the game, because that only supports ownership.

Yep, this is what it’s come to on Long Island. A faction of frustrated New York Islanders fans plans to use Saturday’s home game versus the Sabres as a means to protest the “circus of an organization” it feels the once-proud NHL franchise has become.

From Isles Nation:

We are protesting the inept Isles organization and management, led by owner Charles Wang and GM Garth Snow. We are protesting the lack of progress of Garth Snow’s rebuild that has dragged out for way too long. We are protesting the lack of accountability surrounding this organization. We are protesting the constant salary of this team being at or near the NHL mandated cap floor.

The Isles, by the way, have the NHL’s worst home record, at 9-16-8.
