White t-shirts cost less than red t-shirts. Maybe not by much, but when you're giving away 17,625 of them in one night, it adds up. Just sayin'...
What I don't understand is, many other fan bases around the league have absolutely no problem with participating in a white-out or a (insert team color here)-out. Why do Devils fans think they're so special? And don't try telling me that red would have gone over better; half of you would have worn white just to be contrary.
Best example of this: Nashville fans.
None of their jerseys were gold last year, not even their first 3rd jersey which was that nasty mustard yellow.
Team promoted a "Gold Out" and handed out shirts. 99% of the fans, whether they were in a $600 suit, $400 jersey, or their favorite NASCAR shirt, put on the damn gold shirts. It looked awesome.
It's unreal how people are justifying not wearing a shirt because of what they paid for a uniform. Congrats, you're refusing to conform to the rest of the team because you've already paid to conform by buying a red jersey that at least a doezen or so people also have. OH NO! I'M NOT ORIGINAL ANYMORE!
I broke out a jersey I hadn't worn in almost 4 years to make sure I wore white. The Nordiques Nation guys who sat quitely behind me in 104 even put on their white shirts over their blue NN shirts. I'm sure they paid $20 for those. I know I've said it before but the fact the so-called Supporters [aka the ones who rode the coattails of last years movement by joining the bandwagon with STHs] couldn't even put on their white or even wave the damn shirts just shows my point.
I get along with a majority of the people on this board, but as a whole, our fan base is beyond disappointing.
