I wore a road jersey, but kind of expected it'd go this way anyway. I think it's kind of hilarious that after the Twitter freakouts of "Oh that'll just make the orange jerseys stand out more!" it was our own damn fans that torpedo'd it.

The fans that insisted on wearing red last night were the same ones who refused to not wear their white jerseys a few years ago for the Rock Your Read campaign. It's apparent that you just can't ask Devils fans to do anything, we're too friggin stubborn to buy into stuff like that I suppose.

I left the jersey home and wore a white t-shirt. It may not have been the Devils shirt, but it was white nonetheless haha. I don't know why people couldn't wear white for a single game, especially considering they gave out white shirts. But it's whatever, no amount of white was gonna make yesterday's game anything other than a disaster.

I wore my white Elias, so I was in the spirit of the white. I was even ready to wave my t-shirt like a rally towel, had they actually scored.

Why do they do a white promotion when the visiting wears white? Think it would make more sense to support the team by having red shirts to give out. They used to wear white at home, but nowadays makes more sense for red.

Alot of people are too individualistic to do stuff like that. I played along and even wore a white hat that I dislike. It could have been cool if it worked but stuff like that is "above" Devils fans.

If they had "get sh!tfaced drunk" night, though, we'd probably have 100% participation, if it was held on a weekend.

$1.00 beer Night, but only if you wear white T provided. They'd wear the white T and complain that the beer sucks.

That's exactly what would happen. That honestly sums up this fanbase pretty well lol.

Coyotes do it from their Winnipeg days when they did 'White Out', and home teams wore white. No good reason for Penguins,

When you hand someone a free white shirt as they are entering the arena, what more can you do to get them to wear it? The idea was good and it didn't fail, the fans who decided not to participate failed..

It all comes down to team spirit. If the franchise wants the fan base's help and the fans themselves dont meet them half way then it is completely OUR faults as fans.

I think alot of people are "afraid" to be loud, chant, and wear a "free" t-shirt. Plus, I would venture to say that alot of people have the mentality of: "I paid alot for this jersey, I am going to wear this over a free t-shirt."

Still, its fun. Team pride, dont be an a$$hole.

Well it kinda makes sense for the Penguins with the whole penguins living in icy areas, ice being white, a white crowd would kinda be like an icy environment for Penguins. Am I stretching this too far? Either way, makes sense to me for a team that for years played in an arena nicknamed the Igloo.

No, this was most definitely a bad idea. You have a team that's been preaching Rock Your Red and Get Your Jersey On, that wears a red jersey at home in an arena that's decked out in red including red seats and it's the home opener, so 17,000 people who haven't seen their team since April want to wear the jerseys they wore last year or possibly bought over the summer. Then the team tells everyone to wear white and hands out a t-shirt. Most of the people there had no idea there was going to be any sort of white out and just took the shirt as a souvenir.

Saying that fans 'failed' is absurd. Dude, I agree with you on 99% of things, but I just don't think the team thought this one through. Red t-shirts would have been a total success.
