It sounds bad, but I bet most of the fans were waiting to see if there was going to be a game 7 before buying tickets. Might as well wait a day not to deal with anything. I am sure the game will be sold out Thursday.


According to the link within the link, that 5,500 number is already down to 3,801. So, yeah, I'm with ya in thinking it'll be a sellout by tomorrow night.

How else would you call it when the head of the online marketing department gives a fan free suite tickets after getting into a spar with an opposing team's president on twitter?


good fun. Now that you put it like that, I am outraged.

I am going to start sending Jim Dolan some smart-ass tweets now, if I knew how to tweet.

Yup, get off my lawn.

And she looked like an ass for making a smart-ass remark directed at his twitter and then complaining when he replied back with a smart ass remark.


I have to clear up a few things. I absolutely did not tweet Mr. Yormark with the intention of trying to score tickets to the Devils game. I also already had tickets to the Devils game for last night and gave them to my friends after I was offered the tickets in the suite. I was in a suite with other people. It wasn't as if there was tons of free food and booze. (Not that I expected that at all.) I would have been happy in my usual seats, but took the Devils up on the offer because, well, why not?

Also, I am not claiming to be perfect or a saint. I am not saying I was right and he was wrong in this situation. Was my comment snarky? Absolutely. Was I pissed off that he was blaming the banning of plastic rats on Devils fans? Absolutely. Could I have worded my tweet differently. Of course. Before I saw his reply to my tweet I was already getting random people following me on twitter and I was very confused. Then I saw his reply and I laughed. I wasn't clutching my pearls in horror saying, "Oh how dare he insult me!" Like I said, before I even responded to his "you have 70 followers. No one cares what you think." I was already getting followers and people were already on the defensive. It wasn't like I called people to arms! I replied to him, "I really can only laugh... You sound worse than my 6th graders...very mature. Don't really care about my follower count ...I wasn't aware opinions were only valid for those with lots of followers. stay classy Florida." I have no problem taking backlash for my comments to Mr. Yormark. I'll own what I said. I had a problem with him blaming Devils' fans for whatever was going on in his arena and I told him so. He chose to respond the way he did. Did it piss me off? Yes. Did I feel wrongly attacked? Nope. However, the philosophy that certain peoples opinions don't matter is worrisome. I'm not "important" so I don't matter? That's a nice attitude for someone who is president/COO of an organization. There is no one who is "right" in this situation. I'll repeat again, this thing was getting out of control before I even typed a response to Mr. Yormark. I wasn't trying to get people to stick up for "poor little me". It just got crazy and I don't know why.

There is nothing wrong with what you did or said. You acted like a fan and should be commended for doing so and I think the Devils took care of that. Those on here saying you were wrong too is just crazy. I found it funny banter and it just goes to show how passionate hockey fans are. For those saying it's so wrong on both sides, do they not realize the things being said on the ice between players and coaches is mature?? Of course it isn't and while we don't hear all of it, we hear enough of it and no one is calling the players wrong for it. Imagine Clarkson being on MIC for a full game, it would be hilarious. Fans should get to have fun too and a dumb owner of Florida played right into it.

I think the overwhelmingly positive response to your tweet shows that most people are on your side on this one LA. I mean, you've added over 2,000 followers in 24 hours, which I think says it all. :cheers:

Indeed. Now let's hope the team wins game 7. Becasue if they do, I may sign up for a Twitter account for the sole purpose of bombing the everloving sh!t out of Yormark's Twitter. :lol:

Again LA and others, please show me were I said you only tweeted him to get tickets out of this. I never even implied it and I have said repeatedly that in your shoes I would have taken the tickets too. I am not even upset at you but instead disappointed in how the devils reward what amounts to being a smart ass on their twitter to another teams executive and that is by your own admission in your latest post. Yormack decided to send you a smart ass response back and now he is the bad guy in this when both of you acted childish.

What will now stop others from trolling other teams personnel twitters if the example given here is that if you do that and they reply to your trolling you get free tickets? This is a problem created by the devils and not LA.

I think I might start tweeting too now

I highly doubt this becomes a problem. Obviously if people start heckling other team executives the Devils aren't going to just automatically give out tickets to everyone. This was most likely a one-time thing.

You don't need to come here and defend yourself. Everyone except one person or two seems to be on your side which is impressive as it is around here. And the thousands of people that have responded by following you on twitter says all that needs to be said on who is right and who is wrong in this situation. I know you didn't ask anyone to stick up to you, but a lot of Devils fans and hockey fans did because they realized twitter followers don't mean jack sh!t when talking about the value of someones opinion. No need to apologize for accepting suite tickets either.

I will say that a lot of people have your back, including the Devils, fans, hockey writers and other media members. Wouldn't be such a bad thing to acknowledge those people on twitter who by following are saying your opinion matters. You wrote: "I wish people would be as passionate about things that actually really matter in the world. Not saying I don't appreciate the support..I do"

Well I think this is an important matter in the grand scheme of things. Everyone should have an opinion that counts, and for any COO of a company to disregard one's opinion is kind of stupid. Imagine he did that with regards to his own fans if they didn't like things were being done.

The only thing annoying to me is all I picture is Big Time Rush's record label owner being mean to iCarly on Twitter. That's nothing personal just that's what you two look like. The whole thing is very iCarly plot line. Devils usually aren't all Disney, they're more Remains of the Day meets Dirty Dozen at Bridge Over the River Kwai
