Alfie Practices In Sens Jersey: Reaction?


So, this tweet came out Monday morning from the Ottawa Citizen’s twitter feed:

Reaction came quickly and really negative that the former captain would still sport the Sens jersey after what he has put the team and the city through over the past 6 weeks.

Personally, I don’t like it, and I am sure he has a generic practice jersey somewhere in his house (unless it has all been packed for Detroit already), or otherwise he could go to Sport Check and pick up a plain white or black jersey.

With the hard feelings directed in various directions, this move seems to smack of Alfie taunting the media, fans and even the team.  Its almost like he is saying “you thought you would never see me in a Sens jersey again right?”.

Its not like those skates are in a single pad arena somewhere out of the spotlight.  It is at the Senators training facility and those skates are widely attended.

It just seems to be in really bad taste at the moment and a poor move from Alfie.

What do you think?
