So I was reading Botch's latest article, and some of the comments about how the Canucks owe us as "paying" customers.

Here is the question?

How much money have each of you spend on the Canucks? Personally? After the lockout, I have spent $17.99 on a hat that was on sale. Not a dime more. Then it dawned on me, for the amount of money I spent, and the number of hours I received as entertainment for free - can I really be upset at the Canucks? Sadly, no.

Although, I feel I have every right to say - Gillis, if you want my money, give me a product that's worth spending cash on.

GCL 40 BUCKS?


Having said that, if it weren't for the Canucks would you have a big TV package that includes Sports Net and TSN?

I've never spent a cent on the Canucks and I never will, but I'm open to receiving merchandise as gifts.

True enough.

And, as has been pointed out before by others, since we are all here on this site potentially looking at the advertisements on this page, we are also putting money into the Canucks' pockets.

On average $1000-2000.00 but this year less then $100.00. If they don't make some serious changes for next year I wont bother spending anything.

Good point - but I guess that gives you full NHL (not only Canucks) + MLS + CFL + EPL - so it's really not that bad

Don't the majority of ad's have "click-through" payments? I personally have never clicked on an ad on this site - maybe once by accident.

Although I didn't spend any money directly on the Canucks this year, I did watch several games on TV.

As a TV viewer, I contributed to the show's ratings, and ratings are what help determine how much the network can charge for advertising and the team and league can charge for the rights to televise the game.

So would the Canucks owe me as a "paying" customer?

Other than my time watching on T.V., the price of a satelite signal, and a towel I needed to go swimming I spent nada. However I have been watching alot of $5 foot long adds- does that count.

hmmm lets see, over my entire time of being a fan (since i was a baby)

3 jerseys. 1 kids and 2 adult ones probably around $600 total
8-9 t-shirts/hoodies/sweatshirts etc... around $250 dollars
pucks, bobbleheads and other merchandise around $150 dollars

that adds up to an even $1000

Edit: I forgot about all the games i've been to

lets see, i've been to three playoff games and about 25 regular season games in my life. I'd say that total cost of that would be around $2500.

so $3500 all in all approximately.... Damn that's so much money. I agree we need better product for the kind of cash they make us shell out.

Went to one game and bought one hat, about $150 total... The game was great and I sport the hat regularly, thoroughly enjoyed going to the game with my old man.

Money well spent for me.

A lot, sadly. Seasons' tickets. Merchandise. Beer. Food. Parking. Charity.(don't feel bad about supporting Canucks for Kids)

Likely cost my family an awesome 4-week, 5 star vacation. However, we love our hockey.

I usually don't show my allegiances with money, but with loyalty and unwavering passion. Even before the lockout!

I got two free tickets this year... both games I ended u spending about 100 on beer n food.

My main expense is drinking at bars tho... at least 40$ bill every game I went out... probably 30 games... but I ate too I guess.

Ill take the bar atmosphere over rogers " no noise full of stuck up people" arena

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!
