You have the wallet. That's the only weapon you have. The OHL and its teams are, like everything else, a business. It needs money from fans like us to survive and thrive. Deny them that, and they will get the message loud and clear: CHANGE OR DIE.
True, but we're not hurting the OHL (or Branch for that matter) as a whole as much as we're directly hurting our team when we do that.

Trust me, there's been twice over the last 4 years that Branch's actions have caused me to say "I'm not going to renew my tickets next year, I can't take any more of this clown." - but I did. There's got to be a better way than denying our team a permanent cheering fan in the seat all season.

But after the Fletcher suspension, the Billingsley suspension, the Kuhnackle suspension, the no-helmet-off during fighting, the calling-everything-a-hit-to-the-head crap just because one player is taller than the other, it'll really be a surprise to myself if I renew next year. I did it this year because I've been waiting since '07 for a season like this. But another year of the cramped Jack and the guy who lords over this league? I can't see it happening. Not because I want to send a msg. I simply can't take it anymore. I'm not sending Branch a msg: he's driving me away!

That, and the fact I work afternoons Sunday -> Thursday, and have to try and sell off my Thursday and Sunday tickets. I can't justify doing it all over again just for Friday/Saturday night Branch BS.
