Devil Dan

Well Met

23 posts in this topic

I suppose it was inevitable that I joined here. I am DevilDan of Section 217. Leader of HATE Inc. Like the Battle Star Galactica series, I lead a rag tag band of fugitives on the never ending and lonley quest. A shining cup we call the Stanley.

If your ever in the Swamp, come up and say hey. Sit with us we don't bite hard. You'll have a great time, might get beer spilled on you, might get throw out by security and you'll definately learn some new words. But in the end we few, we happy few are indeed a band of brothers.

Mr I. and 2 Beers are with ME. As are all the rest that wear my 217 Jersey. I've been in that section since 1989, and consider myself the founder of the Army of 217. (though some might like to dispute)

The others you speak of, well they are a younger crowd. OK in their own rights but need to tone down the racial slurs and inappropriate cursing just for cursing's sake. We kinda want them to be with us but they cast a bad light on the section. Its hard to bring kids there with that kinda crap.

We just wanna have fun and watch our team win.

Anyways, as the CEO of HATE Inc. I thank you.

Ok - well I have no personal probs with anyone with a 217 jersey yet, although one fo the guys from the other group near u deserve an ass whopping for being a jerk to me... anyhow.... I believe i saw Mr. Intensity in Philly on Saturday, but without a 217 jersey... so it threw me off a bit :)

I haven't said "Hi" yet. A bit dumbfounded really. Sorta like this guy: :o

Hey Dan. Let it be known that the legend of section 217 has travelled the globe. Just about everyone that has gone to a Devils game knows about you guys.

Like, I'll go to a game in Ottawa with a friend.

Friend: "Wow that section over there is gettin' kinda rowdy."

Me: "That's nothin'. You should see section 217 in Jersey."

Yeah, thats sorta how we feel about some of them. But after all (like they said in Animal House, "We need the dudes.") We have asked them to tone it down a bit. Even got into it to the point of blows one time at a Ranger game. I think its better to be united and take what both have to contribute and focus that energy onto the enemies. Thats why I call it HATE Inc. We can intimidate and help turn the atmosphere anywhere we go. In Philly last year, we made the papers we were so roudy. In Boston, my God, they never saw anything like us as we tailgated in the cellar of thier parking lot. Aneheim, Carolina, Denver, Montreal, The Garden. Anywhere we go enmasse is always another chapter for our book.

ESPN writers and Sport Illustrated wrote about us. We make every Championship tape (2 personally for me)

Don't just go to a game and watch it. You can do that at home. Bring friends. ROUDY Friends. Make your section know your names. Have them miss you when you don't go. Don't let the Meadowlands Sports Authority think they can control you and the outcome of the game. Stand in the Aisles. Run to the Halo when we score. Bear Hug your neighbors. Scream - Chant - Shout - Sing songs. This is OUR Team. This is OUR Swamp. And those are YOUR Sections. Take Them - Own Them And Spread the disease like wild fire!

It's good to know there's people like you around-without people like you CAA would be absolutely silent, and no doubt the fans are the 7th man at hockey games. I always believed that the fans could have a great influence in the outcome of a game. I'm trying to get some more Devils fans in my area-my sister's expecting a boy, I just bought him some Devils merchandise (ex- socks, bib, a tiny Gionta jersey to go with Gio's short theme). Great to meet you Devil Dan.

229?......229.??

BOWMAN's Section? I remember worshipping that guy. Then he started selling out more and more.

Now he gets the crowd going only when we have a lead, or when they put the camera on him. I find it disgraceful now. We jeer him. You either bleed Black and Red or you bleed nothing. He's a Sham now.

I hope that doesn't offend you. I'm pleased to make the aquaintence of any real fan. But I do gt incensed over those that only cheer when the times are good. We have a few of those ourselves, and I rip them to shreds nightly.

Welcome. I sit over in 209 and it's funny how one corner can be so much louder than another. I actually remember seeing some of you guys in Carolina at one of the playoff games ( I don't remember which one but I was at game 4 of 01 and game 2 of 02, both devastating OT losses) Well keep the chants and noise comin' for a long time to come.

LMAO a VERY, V E R Y Painful game that was. I have never before or since been driven out of a building like a leper. That was one of the worst times of my life. I was ready to fight about 25 guys whose mouths couldn't equal one set of teeth.

*Still laughs at the thought of being dragged away*

Thank God my friends are all cowards. I'd have been locked up like the kid from My Cousin Vinnie, awaiting a death sentence. :evil:
