This is getting ridiculous. Oiler fan banned from rexall for a year for selling fire lowe stickers? Yep. Edmonton Sun fixing polls on firing Lowe? Yep.

I don't really feel like typing out my thoughts on all of this insanity again, so I'll just link to the blog I wrote and you guys can chime in with your thoughts here (or there).

Oiler fans are more knowledgeable and more passionate about this team than the (frank)ing overpaid numb-nuts who run it. And that's the truth!

Anyone who disagrees = WRONG!

Fire your Gm, president, and anything having to do with decision making... You can only draft the same player so many times without experiencing tons of problems..

I really have no problems with the way we drafted -- We drafted the best players. It's probably the only thing we've done that does not make me upset. The only questionable pick was Yakupov... But let's face the truth here... Most GMs would have taken the guy first overall -- he did have a really good rookie season, AND he hasn't been given that many opportunities this year (Catch 22 -- You have to earn your opportunities, but it's hard to earn opportunities when it's rare that you're put in a position to earn them.)

What I do have a problem with is everything else. Any idiot fan could have done what our "management" has done so far. Actually, I'd say 90% of our fans would have produced better results if given the opportunity to manage this joke of an organization.
