Ryan Miller: Buffalo Sabres Deserve To Be Booed


It hasn’t been easy being a Buffalo Sabres fan and the team continues to disappoint with their latest 2-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. During the team’s loss, fans let the Sabres hear their unhappiness as they showered Buffalo with boos. After the game, goalie Ryan Miller, who hasn’t been shy about voicing his opinion in the past, said that the Sabres deserved every single boo that the received from the fans.

“We’re not playing the caliber of hockey this city deserves,” Miller said, per John Vogl of the Buffalo News. “We deserve to get booed. They just want you to work hard. They just want you to give them something to cheer about. We’ve been letting them down.”

Vogl also reported that the Sabres had a closed-door meeting following their second disappointing loss that lasted 15-minutes.

While the fans are unhappy with their team’s performance, they should find comfort in the fact that the Sabres appear to be every bit as upset about their disappointing season as the fans are.

      As a fan, I am not sorry… We as fans deserve better. Having to put up with a dictatorship type management like this is absolutely disgusting. Buffalo sports have always been a disappointment and in 2013 it is hitting an all time low. We as fans shouldn’t be sorry. We put so much passion and faith into our teams and wait so patiently year after year after year and hope one day our team escapes mediocrity and becomes elite and finally wins something worth of value! But no… instead we find ways to get worse…. Its pathetic and I am not sorry one bit. This team and management though, should be extremely sorry. pathetic.
