    Blue Jackets fans: join the battle together and help us #DEFENDNWA beginning August 29th when single game tickets go on sale!

    Wednesday, 08.22.2012

    By Blue Jackets Staff – Writer

    BOOM! — Are you ready? We’re so close to dropping the puck on the season. We can’t wait to hit the ice to begin a new chapter in CBJ lore. We need your help, though. Consider this our “call to arms.” We’re asking all of you to join the battle, and defend Nationwide Arena on August 29th. What does this mean?

    “What does this mean?”

    It means they think Bluejackets fans have all been hit in the head by hockey pucks. The “What does this mean” link invites you to buy tickets … which people have been doing for over a decade (not to mention $20 parking, and $9 beers) while the friends-of-John-Jr. in the front office have traded away the best defensemen and bet the house on a keeper who taps out.

    There’s a gross misunderstanding here about who needs to defend whom at Nationwide Arena.

    Rick Nash plays offense. I actually kinda like the new marketing effort but it will be pretty hard to defend Nationwide Arena if there is a NHL lockout for the season…

    With as dismal as the Blue Jackets are there is a good chance that the hash tag won’t catch on anyways.

    I know that we now own the arena and everything as Franklin County taxpayers… but in case of a real battle there are much better defensive structures around town, I think we could let that building go in favor of the Health Department if push comes to shove. I’ve heard the lock-out is only projected through Christmas at this point, so some of those late-season tickets might get used… maybe?

    It’s probably for the best that the season gets locked out considering the franchise would only lose more money, and it would save them the embarrassment of hosting an all-star game with no local player on the roster.

    Defend? Last time I checked, the FANS were not causing the Bluejackets to loose?!? The Bluejackets need to learn how to share. NBA NBA NBA!

    If anything I believe the fans should all wear brown paper bags on their heads until the bluejackets prove them selves (aka winning more than .500)
