The Malik Report

Dear Red Wings Fans,
I understand that some of you have "loser fatigue," and have chosen to stay away from Wings games because the team is not doing so well.
I also realize that the combination of a) "premium game" tiered pricing and b) the Wings' insistence that fans who purchase single-game tickets in the lower bowl purchase TWO lower-bowl seats mean that this going to this game was prohibitively expensive for the average fan.
However, the fact that the Maple Leafs' fans out-numbered and out-voiced Detroit's partisans by a wide margin is unacceptable.
There is no way in hell that any fan base should allow itself to replicate Jimmy Howard and Daniel Alfredsson being jeered in their own rink. This is not *#$%@& Ottawa. This is Detroit. We love our teams and we love our players, win or lose.
And this shit is simply unacceptable going forward. The next time Toronto comes to town, I don't want to read Red Wings fans who are at the game inform the world that they were openly harrassed, harrangued, trash-talked and generally disrespected without penalty at Joe Louis Arena.
Yes, the Red Wings defended their own damn honor, winning by a razor-thin 3-2 margin, but this was unacceptable, Red Wings nation, to get out-cheered by the Ample Fleas' incredibly obnoxious under-bridge-dwelling dicks.
