WINNIPEG - It appears the honeymoon is over between the Winnipeg Jets and their fans. Cheap Braves Jerseys . Once rare game tickets at the MTS Centre are available, and those who attend have booed their 16-18-5 team for inconsistent play that has the club sitting at or near the bottom of their new, tough Central Division. Armchair general managers have also called for roster changes to the transplanted ex-Atlanta Thrashers team, while likeable head coach Claude Noel has had his job security questioned. And the fans arent the only ones voicing their frustration. Players are fed up with looking for the positives in each loss. "Its what you do out on the ice. You can blow smoke as much as you want in the media," right-winger Blake Wheeler told reporters after the Jets lost a sixth straight game at home on Dec. 14. "Weve been blowing smoke for three years – everyone, myself. Everyone thats stood in front of a microphone for the last three years, weve said the same (expletive)." The airing out of frustrations in Winnipeg is something new. When the Jets were resurrected in 2011, fans enthusiastically embraced the return of the NHL after a 15-year absence. Thirteen thousand season tickets with a minimum three-year commitment were snapped up, and unlucky fans paid $50 to join a wait list. The team was loudly cheered by 15,000 grateful admirers at home games, and were even given a standing ovation when the inaugural season ended with an overtime loss and no playoff berth. After last seasons NHL lockout ended, fans were just happy to head back to the rink and their adoration continued despite another campaign without post-season action. But in this third season, cracks are starting to show. When the home winless streak finally ended with a 5-2 victory over Florida on Dec. 20, there was relief, but no fist pumping as the team headed out on the road for what ended up being losses to Vancouver and Edmonton before its three-day Christmas holiday. Before boarding the plane for the road trip, Wheeler was asked if he senses the marriage with fans is hitting rocky times. "I think the expectations have risen every year," he said. "We took a step last year and we just missed the playoffs. I think a lot of us felt we were a playoff team. "And now, I think this is the best group weve had since weve been here so I think the expectations have risen pretty linearly since weve been here. "(The scrutiny) comes with the territory. Its a market that cares about the product on the ice and theyre very passionate. Theyre very enthusiastic when youre winning and very enthusiastic when youre losing, its just a different kind." Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian got a different view of fans when he recently missed 15 games with a groin injury. Did he feel the winds of change while sitting in the press box? "Its a touchy subject," Bogosian said. "Theyre usually pretty loud, but sometimes if the team is not playing as well as we should, some people get unhappy." Behind his mask, goalie Ondrej Pavelec hasnt noticed more unforgiving fans this season. "They cheer for us every time," he said. "Sometimes we play bad, we dont deserve it and theyre still there. I dont see any difference." He and Wheeler havent been sought out by fault-finding fans. "The people are all very respectful," Wheeler said. "When people see us out and about, theyre happy to see us out in the community. "The wins and losses are obviously very important, but at the same time were still people. Theres nobody that wants it more than we do in this locker-room. Its just a matter of going out there and doing it." Noel acknowledged fans have higher expectations this season. "I think weve had that sense for a while," he said. "After the first year, we had that sense that they would like more performance and the honeymoon is over. "We dont sit here and take our fan base for granted. They expect us to work, and they should, and perform." Prior to Winnipegs loss to the lowly Sabres in Buffalo earlier this month, Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff revealed hes felt heat from critics. "If youre able to find a way to improve, then you try to act on it," he said. "But change doesnt always equate to improvement. "Change can certainly placate phone calls, emails on the different venues out there, but that doesnt necessarily mean thats the proper direction to go." Cheveldayoff, who extended Noels contract earlier this year through the 2014-15 season, was also asked if Noel is doing a good job. "Coaching in this league is a tough job," Cheveldayoff said. "Theres lots of second-guessing that goes on everywhere. "And thats the nature of it when youre in the public eye like this. Everyones got their own interpretation of whether someones doing a good job, not doing a good job. At the end of the day, I know that (all the coaches are) working hard and doing all they can." Ender Inciarte Braves Jersey . His absence against the Celtics comes a day after he scored 43 points in the Heats 100-96 win at Cleveland. Atlanta Braves Gear . The Force had two men, including former Wallabies No. 8 Ben McCalman, in the sin-bin in the dying minutes of the match, but were able to resist a late Highlanders surge to post a four-try, bonus point win. . -- Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings will be on the sideline as the Packers make their push for a perfect regular season.With James Anderson sitting out Englands first Test against Pakistan at Lords on Thursday with a shoulder injury, how might the hosts fare without their senior strike bowler? Despite Anderson being the countrys all-time record wicket-taker, England have won 48 per cent of the 52 Tests theyve played without him since he made his debut in 2003, in comparison to 44 per cent of the 116 he has played in.Perhaps somewhat unfair given Andersons early absences coincided with a very strong England team that won the 2005 Ashes with Andrew Flintoff, Steve Harmison, Simon Jones and Matthew Hoggard leading the attack.A fairer reflection would be to look at the eight Tests out of 104 that Anderson has missed since he burst back into the team on tour in New Zealand in 2008. Heres how England coped in those…51 ALL OUT(LOSS v West Indies, Jamaica, February 2009) Ryan Sidebottom was preferred to Anderson in Jamaica Following the sacking of Peter Moores as coach and with Andrew Strauss replacing Kevin Pietersen as captain, England left for a tour to the West Indies in turmoil. Things would get much worse as the tourists crumbled to an innings-and-23-run defeat in the first Test in Jamaica.Anderson was dropped from the team following two low-key performances in the warm-up matches, with Ryan Sidebottom preferred as the swing option. Although Sidebottom went wicketless in his 24 overs, it wasnt the bowling that was the problem - England suffering an embarrassing batting collapse to 51 all out in their second innings.RESTED IN BANGLADESH(WIN v Bangladesh, Chittagong, March 2010)(WIN v Bangladesh, Dhaka, March 2010) Graeme Swann took up the wicket-taking mantle with Anderson rested Anderson was one a number of players rested for the two-Test tour of Bangladesh in early 2010 - captain Strauss also given a breather. It allowed for Steven Finn, Michael Carberry and James Tredwell to make their Test debuts on tour. The under-strength England made light work of the hosts, earning 181-run and nine-wicket wins.Stand-in captain Alastair Cook cracked 173 in the win in Chittagong, with Paul Collingwood notching 145 and Graeme Swann taking 10 wickets in the match to spin the side to success. Things werent quite so simple in Dhaka as Bangladesh tallied 419 in their first innings, but 138 from Ian Bell helped England nudge past that total and a second century on the tour for Cook (109no) saw England chase down 209 to win in the second innings.DILSHAN DOMINATES(DRAW v Sri Lanka, Lords, June 2011) Tillakaratne Dilshan racked up the runs against an Anderson-less attack Tillakaratne Dilshan was the dominant performer as England drew with Sri Lanka in 2011, getting himself onto the Lords honours board with a Test-best 193. Matt Prior (126) and Cook (106) also notched centuries in a high-scoring game.It was in stark contrast to the events of a week before in Cardiff as England bowled out Sri Lanka for 82 inside 25 overs to earn a thrilling final day victory. While Anderson played in that game, a side strain kept him from bowling in the second innings - Swann (4-16) and Chris Tremlett (4-40) doing the damage - and also prevented him from playing at Lords. Braves Jerseys China. TINO BEST BLASTS 95(DRAW v West Indies, Edgbaston, June 2012) Tino Best smashed England for 95 from 112 balls in Birmingham With the series already won 2-0 with one to play, England controversially opted to rest both Anderson (nine wickets at 26.88) and Stuart Broad (14 wickets at 21.71) for the final Test against West Indies at Edgbaston in 2012. When the game got going after much disruption due to rain, Englands attack of Finn, Graeme Onions and Tim Bresnan struggled.Denesh Ramdin responded to criticism from Viv Richards with 107 and a poorly-scrawled sign saying Yea Viv, Talk Nah, while Tino Best struck a then Test-best score by a number 11, with 95 from 112 balls. Ashton Agar would go on to break that record with 98 against an Anderson-led attack at Trent Bridge during the 2013 Ashes.ASHES ABSENCE(WIN v Australia, Trent Bridge, August 2015)(LOSS v Australia, The Oval, August 2015) Oh My Broad! Stuart tore Australia apart at Trent Bridge It would be a further three years until Anderson would next be absent for England - and what a Test to miss! At a venue he loves, Trent Bridge (53 wickets in eight Tests at 19.24), with an Ashes series on the line (England 2-1 up with two to play), Anderson, again suffering from a side-strain, could only watch as a Broad-inspired England skittled Australia for 60 inside 19 overs on a sensational first morning of the fourth Test.Off the back of Broads 8-15, Joe Root struck 130 to give England a healthy lead before Ben Stokes took 6-36 to wrap up a convincing innings-and-78-run win and secure the urn for the hosts. A slight hangover followed at The Oval, with Australia captain Steve Smith striking 143 and leading his side to an innings victory of their own and a consolation win.BOXING DAY WIN IN DURBAN(WIN v South Africa, Durban, December 2015) Moeen Ali put in a man of the match display in Durban Anderson returned for Englands autumn tour of Pakistan, but was again forced out for the first Test in South Africa, struggling with tightness in his right calf. Chris Woakes came in, taking match figures of 1-53, but it was a man-of-the-match effort from Moeen Ali that inspired an emphatic England win by 241 runs.Nick Compton (85) and James Taylor (70) bailed England out of trouble from 49-3 to a score of 303 in their first innings. Moeen and Broad then shared four wickets apiece to give England a near 100-run advantage which Root (73) and Jonny Bairstow (79) added to in the second innings before Moeen spun South Africa out for a second time, finishing with match figures of 7-116. Anderson would return for the second Test in Cape Town and England would go on to claim a 2-1 series win.See how England cope without Anderson - and Mohammad Amirs likely return to Test cricket - by watching their first Test against Pakistan, at Lords, from 10am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2.
