I think this is a great thing. I love going to the Crew games and seeing the Nordecke rocking the stadium. So going to a Blue Jackets game and seeing the same vibe would be awesome. I would suggest bringing some of the same signs that hang in Crew Stadium like "Be Massive", "Columbus til I die". It would promote the same solidarity that we are Columbus and we support our city and our teams. I also think some of the Blue Jacket players are also soccer fans that would appreciate the support from the Crew fans.

Crew supporters are incredible and absolutely make the experience at the stadium on match day. Cool to see it being applied to hockey games as well... this has actually been done by DC United supporters at Capitals games as well. There are some pretty impressive vids out there of the outings... best of luck to Columbus fans, this is an awesome idea.

I actually thought of this a while back and thought it was the greatest thing that could happen to Nationwide Arena, but I also figured it was unrealistic. I am thrilled that I have been proven wrong and I can't wait to experience it. This could have a great impact on the arena/team and so the city, and even change the NHL forever. I want to be a part of this effort! How can I help make this happen?

I actually thought of this a while back too. Before Bradley Patter and before the DC United fans. In fact, I tried to implement it.
Our group, The Gray Jackets, was having trouble with attendance. It never occurred to us to go to Nationwide Area. We kept going to Crew Stadium. Also, we never thought about cheering for the Blue Jackets. That makes sense too. If we would have only re-factored a little! Oh well...
