Thrashers fans have had a common refrain recently: with all of the bullshit that’s happening with our franchise – all of the rumors and nonsense – where the hell is Gary Bettman? Why hasn’t he been in Atlanta? Why doesn’t he address the issues first, instead of letting callers on radio shows bring them up?
Better yet, where’s our “we stand up for the fans” stump speech that Phoenix got?
So, on a suggestion of a friend, some fans began the #whereisbettman Twitter hashtag, with some creative results. On further suggestion of a friend, however… this was born:
This feature will track Bettman across whatever airwaves he might so happen to be on – because God knows that they won’t be here in Atlanta. If the mythical figure of Santa Claus can get tracked by NORAD, then by God, so can the mythical figure of Gary Bettman.
