What is the purpose, history, and significance of a "blackout"? Just to be different from the Jets whiteout? Does the visiting team wear the white jersey?

I doubt there is a history of a blackout. But yes, the home team wears dark colours and the visiting team wears light colours.

The Jets started the "whiteout" to compete with the Calgary Flames one year where Calgary was imploring its fans to wear red. The whiteout was an enormous success and led to a playoff tradition in Winnipeg. Too bad the Jets rarely made the playoffs and when they did they never stuck around for long.

I remember going to the first whiteout. It was awesome. I remember it like it was yesterday. I still get goosebumps just thinking about it.

Its actually led to a playoff tradition in many many many places... did ya'll not notice the stands during the Pittsburg games?

very confusing when the opposing team is the one wearing white.

Winnipeg did not start the whiteout tradition. Some US universities actually tried it before we did. We just perfected it.

I think instituting a black out would de-emphasize the crowd. Isn't the point to make the crowd seem bigger than it is? Or do the Moose play better when they think no-one's watching?

I wonder if anyone took note that Manitoba Conservation euthanized a couple of orphaned bears last week. Maybe somebody should warn the Hershey Bears to watch out for conservation officers while they're here....

I think 15,000 fans is just great! Average just under 9,000 per game, as compared to the Jets average of around 13,000.
I don't remember what the capacity was for the Jets?
Can you imagine how much that extra 6,000 means financially to the team , as well as all the surrounding business', as well as the bus system?

I don't know if I should stay up late, to fall asleep before the game, or go to bed early, to miss the end of the game (not hearing the alarm clock...).


Local time: 02:30 - 05:30 AM.

I hope the Moose can win at least 2 of 3 games in Hershey. I would love to see the team win the Calder Cup back in Winnipeg.

I've got my tickets for game 6. Hopefully the media can get together and decide if we're supposed to all wear white or black.
