Fans at Hotel

Recommended Posts

I witnessed about 50 fans young and old waiting more than two hours Thursday night in Ottawa to catch a glimpse, an autograph or even a 'high-five' from their favourite team but it ended in disappointment and tears.  It was expected that the Oilers would go to their bus out the front door and, to the amazement of everyone who witnessed it (including several hotel staff members), they went out the back!  Kids were literally crying when hotel staff advised that the players were gone to their game already.

Please remember that these are your present and future fans and it kind of took away from your 6-2 win that night!  People paid a lot of money to see you and you make a lot of money to play - that's part of the job as far as we are concerned.  Shame on you!

First time I noticed this.  I guess Fiona thinks the players decide where the bus parks
