New York Islanders Frustrated Fans Start Anti-Snow Social Media Campaign
New York Islanders fans are fed up with the garbage being shoved down their gullets and have started using #SnowMustGo to try to insinuate change.
Last night’s loss pissed off a lot of people. Fans are extremely sick of the New York Islanders continuation to embrace mediocrity and want some change.
Islanders fans hatred for Garth Snow is nothing new. When you’re the General Manager for 12 years and have one playoff series to hang your hat on fans have every right to be upset. Last night, we had bloggers writing open letters to owner Jon Ledecky and a viral hashtag to try to get some change.
Again, “#SnowMustGo” isn’t a new idea, but after last night’s embarrassing loss to the worst team in the conference fans started using the hashtag more than ever before.
Here are some of my favorite tweets from the social media campaign:
The Islanders play a home game tonight against the Red Wings. Before they have the chance to put the blame on injuries, back to back games, or before someone says that the effort was good chant it loud and chant it proudly.
Jon Ledecky claims he listens to what the fans think about the organization. Getting this chant going, bringing signs, whatever you have to do to show that it’s time for a change do it. Hashtags are all well and good but it needs to be more than that.
If you see Mr. Ledecky at the game tonight before stopping and taking a picture maybe tell him how you feel. I’ll use my platform to do so.
Mr. Ledecky, we’re tired of the mediocrity, we’re tired of the fringe playoff teams and the ideology of Garth Snow. 12 years is much too long for someone who has yet to build anything close to a contender.

Please, get this team going in some sort of a direction. Treading in mediocrity has run its course, it’s not working. Make a change.
