Our pal Dwayne sent us a fascinating little story in today's Edmonton Sun that seems to have somehow slipped through the cracks. Check it:
Sure, dude could be making this up, feeding the paper a "management is evil" story for the hell of it. But somehow, given their track record from the Pronger game, I doubt it.
Robert Vaughan used orange duct tape to spell out “Trade Lowe” on the back of his jersey when he attended the Oilers-Phoenix Coyotes game Tuesday night at Rexall Place.
He says he was stopped and taken to a small room in the bowels of the arena where two men, identifying themselves as representatives of the Oilers, told him the sign was offensive to management. “They want all the fans to be like rabbits and sheep,” said Vaughan, who’s owned season tickets for six years and is considering whether to renew them. “I feel violated.”
Moments after he and his nephew walked into the main concourse, he says he was tapped on the shoulder by two men in suits. They identified themselves as representatives of the Oilers and asked Vaughan and his nephew to accompany them.Vaughan says they were taken to a room where the men told him to rip off the duct tape.
