For those that were there and either saw or were unfortunately involved in an incident...file a complaint with the Pru center and the Devils. The more complaints they get regarding the lack of security, the better.

Just came back from The Rock. I was in Section 215, Row 4, aisle seats facing 214. Not sure if you saw it, but right after the Flyers first goal, a kid turned around at me and screamed at me and my girlfriend within a few inches of my face. I stood up and screamed right back, told him to sit the fvck down, "this isn't Philly", it went on for about 20 seconds. It was a tiny shove away from turning into a brawl. I've never been face-to-face with someone over a hockey game like that but he screamed at me. Curious if you saw the altercation, hope you think I handled it well, didn't raise a hand, just sat him the fvck down just like his estranged drunk parents screamed at him before he ended up on the streets for the rest of his life.

The 214 crowd was unbearable and ABSOLUTE SHAME on the Prudential Center staff for not stepping in. They watched for about 2 minutes, during which things could have gotten out of control but somehow didn't. They even saw the guy with the Flyers tattoo taunting someone by walking down to HIS OWN ROW. They were watching and waiting and watching and waiting. Then, the security and staff that were right below the ENTIRE TIME come up 5 minutes later acting like they didn't see anything and didn't know what to do, like they were SCARED. Ten huge security guards follow, and do NOTHING. They should have taken AT LEAST 4 people out of the game, it's unbelievable how incompetent and unprepared they were for this series. Within the span that people started screaming for security to come and they finally came, some really really bad things could have happened, either to a Devils fan or more likely a Flyers fan because of how outnumbered they were (thank god).


Yes I did see that,we sitting right behind the flyer fans at the top of 214 directly next to the fist fighting.. I shrugged off most comments but at one point they were complaining that the devils were playing the trap all last game. That caused me to stand up and get in a screaming match b.c they are basically playing the direct opposite of the trap. They were all over me after that and I got some aids comments my girl got some breast cancer comments ..

Ah you know that's what I don't like to hear about. I have no problem with them being in our stadium but when they are provoking us and just acting like complete trash is where I draw the line. Act respectful and be a human being, even cheer for your team if you want, i really could care less.

Maybe that kid deserved it, maybe not. It shouldn't have to get to that point. Regardless, I know it's the playoffs and tensions are high, alcohol doesn't help either.

From the Acela Club I was watching various groups of Flyers fans. Whenever there was a situation where a security guard had to come down they looked like complete idiots that had no idea what was going on. You would think for a game like this they would at least be a little more attentive...


i only saw the aftermath so i have no idea who did what. this kid shouldn't have had any booze since there is no way he was 21.

There's that old saying "What goes around, comes around" Anyone who jokes about that kind of stuff will most likely have karma come back and bite them in the ass. I understand people are going to get into heckling matches but I'm just surprised that anyone would make comments like that when almost everyone knows someone in their friends or family that has had cancer.

Agreed, but unfortunately not being 21 doesn't stop some/most kids. And judging by the "upstanding citizens" I saw wearing Flyers jerseys I wouldn't put it past them lol...

yeah it takes me back to the home opener to hear these stories. section 13, somewhere in the middle - like row 14 or 15. almost surrounded on all sides by flyers fans. the two to my left were actually pretty quiet and civil and laughed at my responses to the idiots behind us - though mostly said under my breath, didn't feel like really starting a war and be on security's sh!t list. Had the "Real Housewives of Philadelphia" behind me. All early 20's with bleach blond hair nails done, haute couture designer fashions on with flyer jerseys and all that on top. I couldn't see, but wouldn't be surprised if they were wearing heels. All game it was them yelling out crap, trying to act like they knew anything about the game, babbling on about stupid sh!t, "Giroux this" "Briere that" "Hartnell is giving up so much in our zone" blah blah. It was like they thought they were the color commentary section from the point of view of rich bitches.

I seriously wanted to bitchslap each one. Not only are their fans ignorant about most facets of the game, they act like complete neanderthals win or lose. They just live to fight other people or at least get in a trash talking match. I think at least for the "men" in their fanbase, the need to constantly fight like that and spark confrontation is to put a front up to compensate for something else they don't want you to know...

A win in this series would be EPIC. Wipe that smile off Briere's face, stop the commentary on how great he is, make Jagr's "comeback" a complete failure, and further instill that WE are the best team in the area. I'm SICK of hearing all about how the Flyers are such a great team, and how they should be respected. It's about time WE get respect


lol if they start with that bullcrap of AIDS and Breast Cancer, just tell him the doctor called and he needs to get his junk removed, doc found testicular cancer :giggle:
or some crack about and STD or something...if they can dish it out, they should be able to take it in return

I brought my 3 year old to the game last night with heavy apprehension going into it, mainly because of all of the situations described above. I had to bring the kid because the guy I share seasons with couldn't make it and the kid is now 3-0 in these playoffs at games he's attended. Plus he watches every minute of the game and I'm trying to brainwash him into being a Devils fan like dad, instead of a Rangers fan like mom.

We sat next to a group of 3 Flyers fans. Everyone was respectful and exceedingly nice. We had no problems in our section, except for 1 drunk Devils fan yelling at other Devils fans in the section for not having heart or being a real fan because they refused to stand for the entire game like him. While I appreciated the passion the guy had, I didn't appreciate the F bombs being used every other word out of his mouth.

Now, on the way out and walking to the car, we went by a group of 4 drunk Flyers fans. One guy comes up to my son and screams "I f'd your mother." At which point, I pushed him into a tree and his friends pulled him away (He was so drunk, he could barely stand). Amazingly, 2 of the guys in his group came running up to us a block down the road after we walked away and apologized. Some people just take these games too seriously/personally.

What did you expect from these troglodytes? There's a freaking giant billboard on I-95 North coming into Philly that says "If we can't beat them, we beat them up."

And for anyone on Twitter, send your complaints to @PruCenter @NHLDevils @NHLDevilsPR. I just did, and it seems like Twitter is the only place they actually read or listen to regarding complaints these days.

Sat in section 105, next to older man who was a Flyer fan there with his daughters and few other Flyer fans in the area. Everyone respectful, and really the only annoying person was a Devils fan, but obviously not nearly as bad as the Flyer fans being described by other people.

One drunk kid in the bathroom, but he was more or less harmless.

Luckily there was no violence near me in 117. However, there were these two Flyers' fans behind me that were the MOST ANNOYING fans I've ever sat near. They talked the WHOLE GAME about friends, family, the Penguins, the Rangers, etc. They would not shut the fvck up. Then, they started doing play-by-play but knew nothing about hockey. It was just constant "Put it in front", "Get there", or "Let them fight". That's it, repeatedly. I just sat there silently, hating them. But when the Devils won in OT, oh man, I just lost it, turned around and screamed at them, "NOW CAN YOU SHUT THE fvck UP AND GO THE fvck HOME!" Felt great haha. Also proceeded to try to high-five every Flyers' fan coming up the stairs in my section. Not surprisingly, most of them were not fans of this.

They are not state employees but they are employeed by a private security company contracted by the Prudential Center.

I know this only because I submitted a complaint about them last year. Never heard anything back.

After reading this thread, people better have that text number for arena security programmed in for the rest of the playoffs I'm afraid.

I didn't see a lot of Flyers fans during play, other than the four in front of me and a bunch in my row, but fortunately they were quiet and not the douchey contingent. I was amused by that clown in a Flyer jersey near the Fire Lounge waving his towel along with the Devil fans when the scoreboard was prompting it lmao.

The Rock security text number is (507)724-8378. Program that into your phones and use it when necessary. I usually use my old standby with these mutants, "I hope Pelle Lindbergh drives you home"

One of my friends was taken away by security in Game 6 against Florida without any prior warning because of profane language. I don't understand how they could be that strict then and so lax last night.

I had 4 Flyer fans next to my friend and I that were fine. They just cheered their team (which was only annoying because it was the Flyers) and were respectful. I chatted with them a little during intermissions. There was some guy at the back of the section who kept screaming like a moron every time Bryz made a save. But the best was a group of 1 guy and 2 girls a few rows in front of us. The guy was cocky and danced to the crappy techno jersey shore style, but was mostly fine. The 2 girls spent the whole game screaming and trying to talk smack. In the epitome of Philly stereotypes, the Devils are winning 3-2, there's a huge Let's Go Devils chant, and the one girl has her beer bottle in here mouth with both hands up flipping everyone off while the other one was trying to yell 'shut up' at people in other sections. It really made me realize how sad some of these people are.

Simple, they were scared and unprepared. They sent the most clean-cut friendly looking guy to go handle the ruckus up in section 214. There was no way he was going to get ANYTHING settled there.
