Tonawanda News — Jacobs was one of the hardline owners that pushed the lockout to the point it reached.
Don’t buy your beer, peanuts or pop from him.
Instead, find one of the independent beer vendors — they’re the guys (and girls) generally standing by themselves in the black and white striped shirts. These guys work on contract and only make money based on sales. For most it isn’t a full-time job, but I’m certain all the home games they missed have hurt the pocketbook.
Let’s buy their beer instead. And if you’re game, toss your favored beer guy a couple extra bucks to say hello after an extended off season. This way you can give your money to someone as happy as most fans the game is back — and not one of the guys responsible for the way the lockout happened in the first place.
Game on and go Sabres!
