Sabres Fans Unfairly Criticized Yet Again

They've been blamed for the poor atmosphere at KeyBank Center, scorned by fans and even Sabres players for booing, and mocked by many for leaving games early.

As if that isn't enough, now many of them are getting unwarranted flak regarding Saturday night's tilt against Toronto.

It was a great game in front of a packed house. Nearly half in attendance were Leafs fans. It was Hockey Night in Canada, except that it was in Buffalo. There was plenty of blue and white and not as much blue and gold.

The fact that a large number of season ticket holders had the audacity to resell their seats, for enough money in many cases to make a car payment or feed a family of four for a week, did not sit well with the hockey-is-holier-than-thou crew.

There were non-paying Sabres fans spewing venom via twitter from the comfort of their living rooms in front of their televisions. Hard-working fans were being shamed and tagged as money grabbers. It was even suggested that cashing out for this game should be grounds for season ticket account revocation.

This whole act is just ridiculous and deplorable. Being trolled by visiting Leafs fans pales in comparison to all of the garbage criticism that loyal Sabres fans who financially and emotionally support this heartbreaking team have had to put up with year after losing year.

Conform. Stand up and cheer despite your team being doubled in shots and looking lost. Even when the players you paid to see are clearly taking the night off, no booing is permitted. Regardless of when you have to get up in the morning, you stay until the final horn. And don't you dare resell your tickets.

Enough already.
