DEVILS SUPPORTERS SECTION - August 16th - come name the section and p

Glad to see we got a pretty positive reaction. I was in the section and didn't plan anything but I think it was just an experiment to see if we could work some of our style tifo into the game. Last night was a bunch of people from different clubs and we just did the Red Bulls chants but changed them to Devils.

It is a little weird with the whole crowd not knowing the songs. Without a designated set of supporters sections it would be hard to keep it organized like it is at RBA.

Did anyone try bringing horns or anything last time there was a Devils Supporter's Section game or with the Red Bulls club? A friend of mine got me a red vuvuzela with a Devils logo and Jersey's Team on it. I think it would be excellent for Sunday, but I don't want to risk losing it at the door.

I just called the Devils to double check everything for Sunday. Looks like we have around 170 tickets sold. One thing I was told though was they aren't going to allow a drum to be brought in anymore. I know at least one person was trying to bring one for Sunday but I was told there were a lot of complaints about the Red Bulls fans drum last night so if anyone does try to bring one they aren't going to allow you to get it in.

For anyone who commented about the drum, I just got off the phone with the Devils and they aren't going to allow a drum in anymore. I was told there were a lot of complaints about the Red Bulls fans drum last night so if anyone does try to bring one they aren't going to allow you to get it in.

Too bad, I thought the drum was cool....but then again I was half the arena away, sitting next to it may feel worse.

I can understand if they don't want people bringing random drums in. Our guys had special permission and even at Red Bull Arena you have designated drummers and multiple people working across the supporters sections to keep everyone synced up. If you just have people deciding they're going to bring a drum and use it you can end up with a mess.

But really? People complained about one drum to keep the chants together? What sort of person would do that? Have they ever been to a college football game?

Well, I have an email that gets me in the building with the red horn with a devils logo on it. But I honestly wouldn't suggest you bring one, because a lot of people find it annoying, and I only bring it to do the LGD and KILL chants, not to just blow randomly. I'm not trying to be selfish or anything, but if people just start showing up with them they're gonna get banned just like before.

Btw, the Trenton Devils actually sell them in the arena, if you wanna just blow one loudly go catch a game there, I've been twice this year.

Apparently not. I was a big fan of the college-esque chants (I believe that we will win, etc) but apparently people would rather simple chants than that stuff. I'm also curious who would've complained about the drum...there weren't many other pro-devils chants going on all night.

Lame. Was going to bring my drum, even had permission from the Devils already.

Regardless, Sunday will be epic. With this many people, this is going to be even better than the last supporter's night.

Can't wait, i'll be getting to brick city around 2:30pm. Anyone going to Hell's before the game?

We definitely got a little overzealous with the chants. Of course we all knew them because we've used them a million times for the Red Bulls but now I'm just picturing all of the other fans trying to figure out what we were saying. Especially since some of them are in Spanish and I don't even understand them.

Several people from devilsrule and some from facebook are supposed to be at Port 44 around 230...I'll be there to hang out before heading to the arena at 4.

I will be in the arena around 2:30pm or so. I might just go sit in 107 for a bit before it opens ;)

Get section 105 or 117 again and go nutz! :)

I don't see it as a bad thing. You guys seemed to have fun doing your own thing and that's probably all that matters.

Anyway, I thought that a lot of the things that the Supporters did at the 12/17 game went well, so I'm probably expecting a lot of the same (except with more people). I actually have work on the day of the game, but I will make it shortly before 5PM for sure.

EDIT: Oh, I know that there was a lack of pictures/video of the group from the game vs the Predators, but in this video you can definitely hear us chanting (from :27 to :46, and also a bit later in the video). We were also chanting the players' names but they weren't heard in the video.

Are you standing with us in 106/107?

We have about 170 tickets sold, and if the people who already have tickets (STHs presumably) in that section would participate, and we got some walkovers between the intermission, that'd be fantastic. Hopefully we can also sell the last 30ish tickets.

Oh, I mentioned in an earlier post that I already bought my ticket. Sec107/Row10/Seat1

Not looking to be obnoxious with it obviously, just for the chants and such. But if it's gonna be too much of a hassle I'm not gonna bother.

It's up to you, generally there's only been one, sometimes two people with a horn up in the 208 corner, I'm just not looking for this thing to go overboard with annoying noisemakers. I'm still concerned they won't even let a horn in because the viking people were selling them at the game (to their own members) apparently...can anyone confirm or deny that they had a ton of them?

I got new chant sheets printed out for Sundays game. A lot of the things are pretty easy to know and there aren't really any songs.

We don't have to chant/yell the entire 60mins of the game but we will be trying to get as many people in the arena involved with the chants as possible.

I'm also a Red Bulls fan and I go in the supporters section there when I go to games but I also realize the differences between the two sports and our fans. My goal is to get the entire building louder by doing stuff that everyone in the whole arena can easily follow along to if they want to.

Here is the sheet that I made up and will be handing out at Sundays game. There are some other chants that will also be started that are easy to follow but I can only fit so much on a page.

NEW JERSEY DEVILS SUPPORTERS SECTION CHANT LIST

Opening with Lets Go Devils chant – we plan on doing a lot of this tonight

I believe - Call/Answer – done some point during the 1st– Just repeat what the people doing the calls say

I

I BELIEVE

I BELIEVE THAT

I BELIEVE THAT WE

(Pause, altogether now)

I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN! (jump up and down, repeat several times) also can be changed to I believe we have won if we are leading by a lot towards the end of the game)

After Hey! Song following Devils goal (let section208 lead this)

Say Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, woooooo! (Repeat 2-3 times) done to the tune of the Rolling Stones Brown Sugar

After the Player who scored the goals name is announced by the PA guy

For example…When the PA guy says scored by Patrickkkkkkk - we all yell out Eliasssssss

After the above:

(name of player scored) (clap) (clap) (clap)

After an opposing teams goal:

No big deal! (clap) (clap) (clap)(clap)(clap) (LGD chant rhythm)

OR (after player name is announced by the PA): Who Cares!

During Devils Penalty Kill – we are going to follow 208 for this as well (horn) KILL! (horn) KILL! (horn) KILL (repeat during penalty kill)

During Devils Power Play – (horn) ATTACK! (horn) ATTACK! (horn) ATTACK! -same tune as the Kill chant

Nice save – Marty – Marty! *clap clap* Marty! *clap clap* Marty! *clap clap* Moose – Moooooseeeeeeeee!

Near end of game, if Devils are winning (call/answer) – just follow the people doing the calls

YES THAT IS THE NUMBER _

IS THAT NOT THE NUMBER _?

YES THAT IS THE NUMBER _

PLEASE REMEMBER THERE ARE NO ORGANIZED CURSING CHANTS ALLOWED

LET’S BE LOUD AND HAVE FUN AND MOST IMPORTANTLY LETS GO DEVILS!!!

Yeah I wasn't a big fan of the drum either, it sounded too loud all the way from the other side of the arena in 208. Then again pretty much everything annoyed me last night (including some lady blabbering and crying hysterically on the bus ride back to Broad Street) since I had a headache and fever :P

At least the section was well placed with all the Flyers fans two sections over. The Viking helmets are cool but I still don't know what they were for really.

I'll be in section 3 Sunday if I'm not sick enough to go (got the ticket practically for free) so I should be able to hear you guys.

They were giving out helmets with horns, but those are different horns.

When I read that they were selling horns (from their facebook page), I assumed the noisemaker...maybe they meant the helmets. The point of the helmets was to go with the whole viking theme.

I appreciate their support and energy for the devils, but I can't help but think it was just a publicity stunt for the red bulls, since most people wore red bulls gear, and they brought their own mascot, and the guy in the video on the devils website said he encouraged all devils fans to come to red bulls games. There's nothing wrong with this, (why the hell would I object to someone helping the franchise generate revenue?) I just prefer that the intention is clear.

I hate sitting in a quiet arena, so anything to generate some pro-devils noise is fine by me.

All I thought about was Billy Idol when I read that. Wish we had that Idol song as an intro song now, way better than whatever they call what they have now.

We actually missed out on the opportunity to recruit people to come support the Red Bulls with us because people were approaching us asking what it's like and how they can find out how to go with us. I had no materials to give them and I wish I had some. Viking Army is a really small but fast growing club though and I'm sure they were surprised to get the publicity. They're also the only club who came out using their name officially backing the Devils.

I believe it's a rolling stones song:

Around the 3 minute mark.
