To boo or not to boo, that is the (dumb) question. | Winnipeg Jets

    Please explain who selects the lucky opposing player to be booed — is it determined by the team, a local newspaper, or do the fans vote ahead of time? I’m a Sharks fan and really enjoyed the crowd’s reactions at last night’s game — what a great (and harmless) way to get the crowd into the game! As knowledgeable and fanatic as the fans are in Winnipeg, I would think it would considered an honor to be selected as the “boo-ee”.

    Except for when the Sharks are on the other side of the center line, “Go Jets Go!”

      Thanks for your comment

      Usually the fans pick either the captain or the highest profile player on the other team. Its a great tradition that is not meant as disrespect just as psychological warfare.
