Everyone, I ask you, any and every Devils fan at the game, to rally together to protect home ice tonight.

There are going to be a load of Flyer fans at the game and the 50+ people in the 122 section are going to have a hard time drowning them out by ourselves.

PLEASE, do not become quieted, winning or losing. HAVE SOME SWAGGER! Chant and yell with us.
We NEED TO STAND TOGETHER.

Together, we can DROWN THEM OUT.

We cannot let THEM have their way. Don’t be afraid of being yelled at “for being too loud” and don’t be afraid of those orange jerseys:

THIS IS OUR HOME ARENA. LET’S PROTECT IT.

LET’S GO DEVILS

It's pretty bad that it comes to pleading for people to be loud. I wish we had an aggressive and enthusiastic fan base. =/

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

Is this about the atmosphere at The Rock tonight (and all season long), or, as hurricane mentioned, another desperate plea for fans to support the 'supporters section'?

There have been two vocal, passionate sections for decades - 208 and 233 (formerly 217 and 228 at CAA) - fans who supported the team through wins and losses (including all of last year, not just a few games that the front office wanted to unload seats for) - and fans who didn't need official recognition and a sign and constant jumbotron coverage. The 208 and 233 regulars worked their way to being the 'go-to' sections of the arena for passion, they didn't just beg the front office, and other fans, to recognize them.

I definitely believe that the 'supporter section' adds a much needed vocal section on the Taste of Newark side of the building, but the constant need to promote that section is getting old - they need to earn a reputation for themselves by action, not online pleading and help from the front office.

Bottom line - every Devils fan in attendance tonight (and all season long) needs to be vocal in maintaining home ice advantage regardless of where they sit.

I was totally disappointed with the "Diablos".
First, I thought there would be way more of them.
Second, they didn't seem any louder or into the game than everyone else. I agree with a prior post. I think they need to earn their reputation like the Yankees "bleacher creatures". Disappointed with the product on the ice as well as the work of the Diablos

No offense, but it actually bothered me that the Supporters or "Diablos" didn't even wear white. There were only a handful in that section donning the white, let alone the free shirts.

Sorry, its pretty petty, but if you're going to call yourself the official supporters, you better support what the team's trying to get going.

i agree completely.
i don't want to totally sh!t on them but for a group that held meetings, practiced chants and sold this idea to management they were a complete flop.
Maybe I was expecting too much but i totally thought there would be way more Diablos than 3-4 rows of the entire section.
this team has a lot bigger issues than section 122.
the product on the ice was an absolute disgrace tonight.
i know its only game 1 but this lineup has more holes than swiss cheese.
the lack of effort really irritates me

I heard the vuvuzela on tv a lot last night. Problem is, the dude still only knows the syncopation notes to open the overly used, sometimes annoying, almost as annoying as Rocky Top, "Lets go Dev-ils" chant. Admittedly, I do like the one chant that ends with Rangers suck and Flyers swallow.

the supporters section sucked.

the banner or whatever was on the wall is nice (though the name is a joke).

i dont have tickets there, not that it would make a difference...the 10 or so people that actually went to all of them last year dont have seasons in the section so it was fairly obvious there would be something to be desired.

i mean i was smashed but i don't remember hearing anything from that section...

lol there were about 50+ Flyer fans in the whole arena last night. The only time there's ever been a noticeable Flyer fan invasion at the Rock was Game 5 a couple years back and even then it was only like 25%.

I wasn't at the game last night and I couldn't get season tickets because I can't make almost all of the games this year. I just got done watching the game this morning and was disappointed to hear how silent it was in the 3rd period(yes I know the team sucked but that never stopped us from being loud before) I haven't been in contact with anyone in the Devils office(and none of them have been in contact with me) and I had no idea they even named them the "Diablos" I haven't had anything to do with the section since last season ended.

I can't make it to a lot of the games this season so there isn't much I can really do about trying to improve things.

Like I said before, the "core" of people that were there last season are not in 122 this year. Section has taken a different direction, more organized chants/songs and stuff that likely won't catch on to other parts of the arena. I wish them all the best but you don't want to see such a weak showing because you know if this fails, they will never try it again.

Yep, as expected we had a great grassroots thing going and the Devils took it over and dragged it into the ground. Seems like a lot of us who were part of it last year were left out by their decision to make it season tickets only.
