    Philadelphia Flyers hockey!! :)
  1. Caps fans & why I'm glad they lost

    They're screened. I tried to sneak in two messages with a Flyers slant when I went down there for Game 5, and they didn't get through.
  2. 10 Days to opening night

    Congrats, guys, that looks like a nice building and miles better than the CAA. I look forward to seeing it on Nov. 8. I'm already envious of the cupholders.
  3. Thanks for the info on the closest train station.
  4. What's the closest train station to the Devils practice facility at South Mountain? My cousins live not too far from there just off 280 and Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange, and I'm thinking about taking them to a Flyers/Devils game in Newark this year. (I took them to an Islanders/Devils game at CAA that was neutral for me, but I'm looking forward to attending a game that means something to all of us.)
  5. GDT 09/17: Phailures v. Devils

    I didn't take too many Devils pics other than trying to snap away during the fights, but I have pics from last night's game on my site. Pics from the AHL game are up there, too.
  6. Attending Preseason Games

  7. Sept. 17th

  8. Devils-Flyers pre-season game in Trenton pre-sale password

    It wasn't in the original post - go to this page and enter the presale password in the field.
  9. Devils-Flyers pre-season game in Trenton pre-sale password

    The ComcastTix system doesn't link presales to the event listings like Ticketmaster. You need to click on the presales & promotions link in the sidebar and enter in the password to gain access to the presale listing.
  10. Environment at Philly games?

    Like other said, the Flyers officially sell through ComcastTix. The system did improve over the season, but as much as it pains me to say it, there are occasions when I miss Ticketmaster. The bargains probably won't be as good as they were last season, but I picked up tickets to several games at the end of the year through StubHub. They have an office at the Holiday Inn a few blocks from the Wachovia Center if you need to do a last minute pickup.

  12. Environment at Philly games?

    Flyers fan chiming in - just like Masked Fan says above and others have also said, as long as you don't go overboard with your behavior, feel free to come and root for the Devils or whatever team you happen to support. Yeah, you'll hear some heckling, but as long as you don't cross the line in retaliation and keep it good natured, you'll be fine. Just be wise enough to recognize if you're near the drunken loudmouth who wants to pick on someone and provoke a reaction, or to look at it from the other side, make sure you're not that loudmouth. Every arena has those people and it's always best to avoid them.
  13. New uniforms?

    The replica pricing varies and I think $119.99 might end up being the suggested retail price (the teams with preorder jerseys currently available on shop.NHL.com are at that price point), although some will offer it cheaper like the Caps promo - or more like the Flyers are doing. They're charging $149 for a preorder through their team store at the Wachovia Center. From the Bruins site, I think blank authentics will be around $250.
  14. very quiet at the arena

    The Flyers also have consistent pricing throughout the lower bowl, so NJ isn't the cheapest by a whopping $1, but based on what I've seen looking at ticket prices around the league, I think you're right about that being the cheapest pricing on the glass. I personally don't mind it since it means I can afford to splurge on a good lower level seat (if available) occasionally, but I think you're right in that it allows some other teams to price some seats up top more reasonably, even in the $10 range. You can get full season tickets in Anaheim on the upper ends for $495. I pay about that amount for only 11 Flyers games in a comparable seat. Yes, supply and demand factor into it, but for every time I drop my jaw to look at the high end pricing of some teams, I'm also amazed by how cheap their low end tickets are. Comcast-Spectactor owns the team and the arena here, plus they switched the ticketing over this year from Ticketmaster to in-house ticketing, yet the pricing structure between the two arenas isn't that vastly different. Maybe you'll get lucky and the new arena will allow the Devils to change their prices around a bit, but I wouldn't count on having control over other revenue having a big impact.
