Friedman: Sabres Situation Getting Worse

Great piece last night from Hockey Night In Canada's Elliotte Friedman, with an insightful portrayal of what exactly is happening here in Buffalo right now.

Anyway, I have some understanding and appreciation for this blue-collar city and its sports fans. Scouts and opposing teams say they've rarely seen anything like what's been happening at the team's home games so far in 2013-14.

"That is one angry crowd," an opposing executive said.

We've all heard about the "Fire Darcy" chants, but that's not the only example. The press box setup at First Niagara Center allows for some interaction between the crowd and media/scouts/employees. One scout told a story of two fans demanding to know if he worked for the Sabres, accusing him of lying when he said no.
