The same fundraiser also raised $1250 for canucks for kids fund. $1450 went to towards the banner - basically like buying a 50/50 ticket.

 

In response to the reason for the banner, organizer Uncle Laleet said:

 

“We are only doing this because we love our team and we want a Stanley Cup,” said the fan who organized the protest, who goes by the name of “Uncle Laleet” on Twitter. “We just want someone who can bring this city what we have been craving for 50 years.”

Not surprised someone dumb enough to spend money on this thinks firing Benning will magically turn us into a contender.

Definitely the biggest problem rotting the organization is the meddling owner but you can’t fire an owner.

Not true. We get to laugh at a bunch of clueless morons, wasting their hard earned money :lol:

Not entirely, since more than half of the money goes to charity.

 

I don’t think anyone who spent money on this would think it’ll work. It’s for a good laugh.

Could have just given the money directly to charity. Would do more good in the world. 

Could say this about any expandable income. I use a portion of mine towards building a Datsun. Lot of that supports small businesses within the Datsun world. 

 

Keep in mind, here they supported someone’s livelihood to fly that plane. 

 

Is that money better used for charitable contribution? Sure. But that argument can be made for any expandable income used for non-charitable purposes. Just like me with my datsun.

Your Datsun is more productive than flying a plane with a message that will do nothing. In fact only the pilot and the sign maker probably got something out of it.
