Edmonton Oilers fans are fed up. The perennially underperforming team has had a difficult stretch, and that was extended with a sixth straight loss after Saturday's 7-1 drubbing at the hands of the visiting Chicago Blackhawks. 

Fans at Rexall Place ripped into the team following the embarrassing loss, and it wasn't pretty. 

Take a look at the incredibly uncomfortable video below. 

It's easy to understand the fan's reaction considering how disastrous the past few seasons have been. The rebuild is crawling along with no obvious improvement despite first overall draft picks Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Nail Yakupov in the mix.
