And the worst part is that we have many families attending our games so all of these little kids are exposed to these shenanigans.


Not that it's right or anything, but as soon as you knew that we were gonna play the Flyers, it should be an automatic that unless you're down low, it's a no kids zone. Unfortunately, this behavior is to be expected from Philthy fans, so bringing a kid should be done at your own risk.

As much as I hate having kids see this crap, it is unfortunately part of the stadium/arena experience these days and have been for some time.

Notice you never see when doing shots of the crowd on ESPN that they do not focus on the majority of fans that are sitting and watching and cheering but instead focus on a few drunken idiots and paint them as the "true die-hards." Unfortuante but that's just how it goes.

That brawl happened in 120 and unfortunately a stampede of people fell down the rows, it was very dangerous, I was holding up two guys on my shoulders because they couldn't get up. Section 120 is mostly full of Season Ticket Holders (I am one) so I knew the guys behind me and it is a shame that they almost got injured. I held the guy up for a good minute until everybody got off of one another. They could of broken their legs or hit their heads on the seats below them.

Before game 3...even before the WARMUPS a drunk flyer fan shoved me out of the way when I was walking to my seat. I did not even say a word or even look at the guy, all I saw was orange. It is very scary to be touched by these lowlifes who punch, push, stab, and puke on people.

So far 'normal' Flyers fans have been sitting near me but even they are very strange. Flyer fans are not human.

I brought up this topic on Flyers hfboards and it is disgusting that they think this is normal behavior. They say every fanbase have people like that...they do not understand that it is wrong to bring these kind of antics from their own arena to another arena. I never have any problems when a ton of Ranger, Canadien, Penguin, or Leaf fans invade our arena. But to become violent in another teams arena is just disgusting. They think it is normal and that's where the problem emerges from.


I can't stand a lot of Ranger fans, but for the most part, though they may repeat a lot of the same tired jokes and are just annoying in general, I rarely see them trying to start fights with anyone. Ditto other fanbases. Almost every time I see a Devils-Flyers game, the fists start flying somewhere (usually multiple somewheres)...and it happens enough that when the Flyers are in the building, it's not a shock when the fights start up.

I don't get it at all. And it's the number of sucker-punches that are even more aggravating...like punching someone who's not expecting it is somehow makes Flyer fans that much tougher. No, not all Flyer fans act like that, but there's more than enough of 'em that do.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Like I said, I grew up as an STH (still to this day with my father) for the NY Jets and I SAW IT ALL and HEARD IT ALL from a very young age. I am now a young professional and opted to take my girlfriend to the game without really giving it too much thought because she always comes with me to Jets, Devils, Yankees, Villanova etc. games and I will definitely NEVER bring her to another Devil/Flyer game, nor will I really jump at the opportunity. I brought her to the 2010 Flyers/Devils series and we really had no problems whatsoever, this was a unique situation and one which will change my perspective on attending these sporting events in general.

Agreed. Ranger fans are just annoying but they are never this violent.

yep went to the home opener this season and after that, not subjecting my GF to Flyer fan sh!t again. It was really bad. I'm not normally one to want to fight someone, but I was damn close to it that game. Really trying to stay away from Rangers or Flyers matches because I don't want to subject her or myself to that crap. If one of them were to start sh!t and call her something I'd probably lose it. Not worth getting bounced from the arena.

I remember many a fight during any Devils-Rangers game in the 200 level at the CAA. It really does seem like it has calmed down quite a bit since we moved to Newark, maybe because nobody wants to spend a minute in a Newark jail cell for a stupid fight at a hockey game.

...


Just a simple but effective tactic I've learned... next time get the usher's name and constantly repeat it. "What's your name?" "Jane." "Ok Jane, there are two drunk Flyers fans looking to start trouble down there. It's just a matter of time, Jane. They're drunk and ready to fight. I'd really appreciate it if you can keep an eye on them for me, Jane." I know it sounds corny and awkward but it makes the person feel more accountable. The other upside is if she doesn't do anything, you know her name when you complain to the Devils.

It's biggest sin is that the guy has absolutely zero idea what he's talking about. First, I bet you he doesn't have a clue what the neutral zone trap is, and if he did, he would probably realize that every team uses some form of it at various times in the game.

Also, except when they had leads, the Devils did not trap in the series. We also averaged close four goals a game, which is well above the regular season average. I suppose what this guy means by exciting is giving the other team a chance.

exactly what I was thinking Daniel -- this guy doesn't even know how to play hockey. I always wonder what these guys see when they watch a game. Had he written there is no place for defense in hockey I think I'd see his point. I'd disagree, but to each his own. Seriously the one thing that marie their Pens series was the lack of defense.

However I did agree with the Flyers assessment of how the Rags have played this season (when they flipped out that one game). Shot blocking is nonsense when EVERYONE is doing it. It's cool when a few guys are but the entire team? That's sort of weird. It's like the Queen said you guys get everything you can and I can cover what gets by you. These shot blockers need to be turned into effective screens. But you can't do that on the fly - it so stinks. But what the heck it's a fun challenge.

devils play a very boring offensive zone trap where they won't let the other team ever have possession. this really pisses off the other team and they tend to have nothing better to do but whine about it.
