An open letter to the man...

92 posts in this topic

I agree, but it's discouraging to parents if they believe taking their kid to a Devils game will mean dealing with people yelling obscenities all night long.. Doesn't really promote a family atmosphere, and the team needs younger fans coming to games and getting interested in the game

Bingo.

If you have kids that want to see sports live, I always suggest preseason as the answer. I've taken my oldest son to 2 preseason games thus-far. 1 for the Jets, and 1 for the Devils. -Smooth sailing all around.

This seems to happen alot more in the 200 level. Downstairs seems much more tame for the most part....

Sitting home watching the game, I heard people booing Tallinder every time he touched the puck. He is fully aware that he is not having the best season. none of the players are....they are part of OUR team and we need to support them no matter what. Its one thing to say sh!t on the boards or to your friends or in the stands for that matter....but to boo the player on the team YOU are there to see play......Idiots. :rolleyes:

....there's no safe-zone anywhere.

Even if you go lower level and avoid the drunken topside, you're still subject to the chants of the arena. It wasn't bad enough to add; "RANGERS SUCK!" to the potvin song, oh no! We now have to follow that with; "FLYERS SWALLOW!" :thumbsup:

You are making our fans out to be complete hooligans. There is a good amount of d-bags, but they exist in every arena/stadium in every state in the great USA. The Rock is probably one of the tamer arenas around, especially THIS year. There is hardly enough people on any given night to make any obscene chants upstairs be heard downstairs....

trailblazer, can't you just say you're sorry so Martyisth3b3st can stop making you look dumb? WHY did you have to go and resurrect that in this thread?

You two should hands down win the feud of the year award.

Definitely, it's certainly entertaining! Makes me eager to read these feud threads :boogie:

But yeah, there's nothing worse than an obnoxious fan of the same team you follow. If I'm at the rock with some rival fans who are really acting like douchbags, I'll have no problem having them kicked out / thinking to myself "My god rangers fans are just stupid, all around". But if I see a STH or someone wearing devils gear, I'll think twice about doing something about it and end up more annoyed.

People need to just remember that kids are here. Obviously, it's a sporting event. People are going to get drunk and act up, but dropping f-bombs with young kids sitting near you is completely unnecessary.

just so i understand correctly.

i can post free tix in this section but tix for sale have to be posted in the classified section?

fine line if you ask me

Correct. It's not a fine line, it actually makes a lot of sense.

Anything FOR SALE goes in the Marketplace. It's very simple.

"Martyisth3b3st"- ROTFL at that username.

The annoying guy paid for his ticket and should be able to say whatever he wants. You people are so ready to give away our first amendment rights that it sickens me. You probably voted for Obama.

Besides, only 6 or 7 guys on the team deserve our cheers, and they are mostly 4th liners or forward call-ups.

212. An open letter to the large fan sitting in section 212, row 2, seat 10. You are a fvcking moron. Everything about you is disgusting. When they announced the Devils players, you boo'ed. When they announced the Devils coaches, you yelled "SUCK!" after each one of them. You didn't applaud the team when they came out on to the ice. You yelled the most utterly moronic things at the most pointless times. You screamed obscenities at the top of your slowly-dying lungs even though there was a 4 year old girl in the row behind you. I've taken sh!ts that know more about hockey than you do. You're a loud, smelly, obese hunk of elephant semen. If your face were on fire, I wouldn't even waste the time to piss on it.

And I really, really needed to tell you all of these things. Since I took my 6 year old brother to the game, I didn't think it was appropriate at the time. But if, by chance, you post on these boards: fvck. you.

Obscenities are uncalled for, unless they're directed at Sean Avery.

Yeah I have a couple STH in my area who have taken to yelling "Hey! - We suck!" after we score.. They pretty much bad mouth the team non-stop unless we score.. I hope they don't renew their tickets, and if this one guy in particular does, I'm going to give him an earful.. Why have season tickets if you're ready to dump the team after 1 bad season? Yeah, because owning season tickets means the team owes you a decent season every year..

Haha - I think I know which guy you're talking about. It's the one on the ends closest to me?

Anyway, as for the original thread topic, my opinion is that its a Devils game. No one likes annoying people but in a crowd of thousands, and with the team being so sh!tty this year, theres gonna be ppl who are gonna curse and vent at the team.

Maybe its just me but so much seems soft nowadays. Its like people are supposed to watch over their shoulder and scour the crowd for little children so that they everything can be tailored for the little kiddies. Its a sporting event. If you took your kid to a Metallica concert would you be complaining about people using the F-word?

Its a sporting event, these things will occur sometimes. Its not ideal, but lets not act surprised or completely disgusted by someone cursing at the team. We all curse at the team on this board for the most part. So someone paid to do it at the game. Good for him. Its good our fans care and have passion. However, if the cursing gets out of hand then say something to him or tell security.

Wow! Let's not get ahead of ourselves here we're not talking about civil rights we're talking about common decency. If you want to stand across the street and hold a sign with some dreck written on it thats fine, but that fact is we pay for these tickets and in doing so agree to follow the rules set out by the rock and the team.

I pretty much agree. Nobody wants the potty mouth police scouring the crowd, but the cursing does get out of hand fairly regularly. I'm a 26 year old who curses like a sailor most of the day, but when I go to a game and see children around me I keep my language civil. Even if there aren't chilren around I don't yell obsentities (and I am a very passionet devils fan) because it's rude and generally uncalled for. Its not that hard to not curse for a couple of hours. Have some respect for the people arround you, otherwise your just a fvckin a$$hole.

Yup. And if someone gets out of hand with it, just ask them to tone it down or tell security. I just have alot of sympathy for Devils fans who pay to watch this team without screaming bloody murder. Its rough watching Brian Rolston and having to be civil lol

Speaking for the minors, down here they really promote the family friendly bit; this guy would’ve been tossed out.

I have no problem getting on our players if they screw up; I’m quicker to shout encouragement if they do well. And when we scored a hat trick recently and an opposing player picked up the hats, spit on them, and tossed them back into the stands, he heard about it. Since the place is empty and the PA dude is slow on the trigger to turn the music on, there’s a definite window of opportunity to make oneself very much heard throughout the entire arena.

But ‘you suck’ is about as vile as it gets.

I've been a member here for a couple years. Yeah he isn't having the best season right now, but he's still one of the best goaltenders in the history of the sport.

"Taking away their first amendment right?"... and people said I went overboard. Zoikes, scoob.

I'm republican.

When you hiss and boo the team before they even take the ice, you aren't a 'fan'.

2 or 3 screaming sh!tfits during the game wouldn't bother me. He did it every play, the entire first two periods before I moved. Literally, everything. Clarkson's fight, he was screaming "KILL DAVID. KILL HIM. MURDER HIM. PUNCH HIM HARDER!". Everything anyone did that didn't result in a goal, he stood up and screamed about. The only time he didn't stand up and scream was when Ilya scored: he sat down and screamed "WE SUCK" after each of the "Hey!'s"

I have said in the past that there is a fine line between being obnoxious and just down right belligerent. There are kids there that dont need to hear the F word every other syllable. I was at a game last season against Tampa and St.Louis was warming up against the glass working the puck and 2 idiots that were, Ill give them the benefit of the doubt, 21. They were literally up on the boards on the glass yelling, taunting and cursing at St.Louis and he turned around and started yelling at the two guys pointing to the little kids surrounding them. A security guard got there and escorted them out of the section.

Yeah, its professional sports. If you dont want your kids hearing words or seeing things then you shouldnt bring them but on the other hand, that doesnt give you the right to be a complete jackass in the stands.

Everyone around you doest appreciate it and I wouldnt think the players do either. If you wouldnt say it in front of your mom or grandma then you shouldnt be screaming it at the top of your lungs surrounded by strangers IMO.

And damn it dont boo your own team! That pisses me off! Its fine to show discomfort but to boo every time a specific player on the team YOU are there to cheer on touches the puck, or in the above example, wish harm on a player.......just dont do it.

Yikes, yeah that’s harsh. I always cheer my team when they take the ice before the game. I’ve yelled at guys by name when they barf the puck up and it directly leads to a goal. But I save the constant harassment for the other team ;)

It stinks when you’re getting on a guy on the other team and he gets the GWG, but oh well…
