Default GoFundMe to Erect Billboard(s) of Matthew Tkachuk's Face in edmonton

Quote:
After the recent events that took place during the Flames/Oilers game on January 11th. We have decided that edmonton deserves to see much more of Matthew Tkachuk. So we are raising funds to place multiple billboards around the city of edmonton with just Tkachuks face on them (and for ALS) Lets make it happen!! Go Flames!!!!

Don't know which one of you started this, but the goal has already been reached. I'm doubtful it will happen - one would assume you need licensing permission from the team to use his photo.

Thread started on behalf of user, Wolven, who felt it is worth a new thread, but is either afraid of starting one, or can't find the button. Media is picking up the story, so I tend to agree with Wolven.

Even if they're not allowed to use his face could they still just put up a sentence?

"Edmonton loves Matthew Tkachuk" or something.

I'll donate $5 to the cause. The Mathew Tkachuk Friendship tour must go on! Looks like they're seeking team permission to use Tkachuk's face and whatnot, so I put the chances of this actually happening at slim to none, but still worth it since this is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while

Credit to Halifax Drunk for the idea.

I think its hilarious. Is it off the wall and wacky? Sure.

What it is, is evidence that people finally GFA about this rivalry again.

And in Alberta with a poor economy and all the other crap going on its nice that some people still have a sense of fun.

It will be hilarious when they return the favor with a billboard with McDavid's stats or 5 Cups and then the nation laughs at how try-hardy and butthurt they are.

I'm driving up for the game on the 29th...definitely going to have to find this billboard.

Still undecided if I brave my Tkachuk jersey or run Gio

I'm having the same dilemma. Dare to wear my Tkachuk jersey or go with Johnny? I don't want some drunk bonehead Oilers fan punching me in the back of the head. But then again, it'll be great to have Tkachuk jerseys in the stands to rub it in!

My experience at past games is that it is all banter. You might get heckled in the beer line, or at the pisser, but no one will confront you unless you are being an ass-hole. That said, if you go out on Whyte or whatever, it might be a different story.
