    LOL

    When I worked in the Saddledome in the 80s, an Oilers game was always interesting. The upper level (loges) was sold on a per-game basis, no season tickets. So fans of the 'away' team we're very present up there, and with a team like Edmonton in town it was probably 2/3rds Oilers fans. Extra security was brought in for that level, fistfights all night long, a dozen people ejected. The fights carried on into the parking lot.

    I'd go down to the event (ice) level after the game and see MacInnis, Roberts, Coffey and Gretsky standing around, chatting with each other. They could separate the sport from their real life --- and yet, many of the fans could not.
