Update: Rangers Photoshop Avery Banner Out Of FanCam
On Thursday night at the home opener, the New York Rangers invited FanCam to the game to take a picture of the crowd. Also during that game, a season ticket holder hung a banner over the railing of the 400s level that said, “16 AVERY Send Torts to the Whale.”
At the game on Thursday, the Rangers announced that the photo would be available the next day. Friday came and went and the photo never showed up. It was actually not available until the following Monday. I hadn’t had an opportunity to look at it until today but to my surprise, FanCam just so happend to snap a picture of that specific section of the 400s while the banner was being unfurled.
But what’s this? The Rangers have done their best to photoshop the banner out of the picture!
Now this could be them not wanting any pro Avery propaganda appearing on their website or they could be photoshopping all banners and fan signs out of the image. I haven’t seen any other fan signs in the crowd to compare so I’ll let you guys decide. If you’d like to take a look at the image or tag yourself in it, click here.
Update: Since some people doubt that this is photoshopped, here is a picture of what that area of Madison Square Garden is supposed to look like.
If you notice, this banner says “New York Tradition” and there is no Chase Bank logo. I hope this puts the doubters at ease.
