While Boston Blazers President and GM Doug Reffue acted fast with a statement over the weekend when fans flooded the team’s Facebook page with complaints over an inappropriate halftime lap dance during Boston’s Saturday night game against the Edmonton Rush, the team has further extended their apology to fans today.
On Monday evening Reffue posted an additional message on the team’s website, accepting blame for the now worldwide viral sensation, also offering 2,000 free tickets to families for Boston’s home date this weekend against the Rochester Knighthawks. Check out Reffue’s full statement after the jump.

Loyal Boston Blazers Fans,
Our halftime show on Saturday evening was not representative of the Boson Blazers organization and we realize it offended the most important part of our team… our fans. The halftime act was not executed as we expected and for that I take responsibility.
As a father myself, it is important to me to rectify the situation and we have taken strong measures to make sure this will never happen again. Families have been a big part of the Boston Blazers loyal fan base over the past three years and we are committed to continue to bring them an experience they can all enjoy.
To demonstrate this commitment to families, we will give away 2,000 tickets to families interested in seeing the Boston Blazers in action this Saturday, January 22, 2011.
Again, we are deeply sorry for offending any of our fans.
- Doug Reffue, President and General Manager, Boston Blazers
