A chorus of boos bellowed from the few Sabres fans who were left at the end of Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Avalanche inside KeyBank Center.

With the Sabres struggling again, the anger's been bubbling over.

Last week, Duane Steinel captured what many fans are feeling in his epic rant on WGR radio that started a social media movement, #WeAreAllDuane.

"Have they ever sucked the passion out of you like they have me?" Steinel yelled. "I dedicated my life to hockey because of this team. I can't do it anymore man. I'm seriously considering not being a season-ticket holder this year."

Melody Martin was softer in her approach, using song in a parody of the Plain White T's "Hey There Delilah" to urge the team's general manager to make a move to improve the club.

"Hey Jason Botterill do you like it in this city? I've been watching all these games and well, this team's not looking pretty from our view. The spotlight's shining bright on you to make a move," she sang in a YouTube video.

As the Sabres’ season seems to be slipping away, they're facing the increasing chance that they will miss the playoffs for the ninth straight year. There's even talk of a protest from unhappy fans next weekend in front of KeyBank Center.

At Swannie House, a favorite watering hole near the arena, many lamented the sad state of the Sabres.

"I don't have much interest anymore. I'll start to watch. I watch for five minutes and I see the same stuff going on," said Ron Dewald of Tonawanda.

Kevin Long of Buffalo sees hope in some of the talent on the roster, but has grown weary from years of watching losing hockey.

"I'm kind of worried about [team owners Terry and Kim Pegula]," Long said. "They've been in the business a few years now and they should be picking up on what's going on in the city of Buffalo and how important the Sabres are to us."

And we've reached that point in the season where a ticket to a Sabres game could cost you less than order of wings at Swannie House. Upper level seats to see the Blue and Gold host the Red Wings were going for $6 each in the online resale market.

"People tell me that they're overpriced at 6 bucks, so what's that tell ya?" Dewald wondered.

So who's to blame for the mess? The owners? The coach? The GM or the players? 

"I don't have an answer," Long said. "Hopefully the Sabres do."

There's always next year to figure it out, right?
