Sat next to 2 Kings' fans who flew in from LA. Long time suffering fans who knew the sport very well. They even bought game 7 tickets, just in case, and have gone into debt just to get out here to see this. Really felt for them as you can just watch the agony unfold as the game went on. Makes you realize how damn lucky we are to root for a team that has been to the promised land multiple times. Just when the agony hits epic proportions by missing the playoffs and throwing doubt that we'll ever be substantial again, gives us an incredible run like this. Damn I love this team...and glad they've rewarded our loyalty with multiple banners hanging from our rafters. We ARE a fortunate bunch, let's never forget that.

From Canada? Maybe they started rooting for the Kings when Gretzky was there, who knows.



The original King's owner was Jack Kent Cooke - a Canadian- he also built the Forum. A lot of the original King's fans were Canadian. So, not sure if they got the bug for the Kings from their parents or other relatives, but there may be a connection there - or not.

I grew up in SoCal, but not LA, SD, so I could never root for the Kings!

I was a bandwagon fan at one time. I got hooked on this team watching them march to the Cup in 2000.


I guess it's fair to say I and others my age were all bandwagon fans at one time? I grew up in E Rutherford on Patterson Plank rd. I played hockey as a young kid 7 until about 16 yrs of age at the time I could not stand the Rangers not sure why but to be honest probably because someone I did not like in school was a Rager fan so I chose the Islanders until 1982 I then switched to NJ Devils because they were my team. New Jersey had just brought a hockey team to my hometown it was great. I remember yrs later getting tickets going to almost every game after work for 12$ behind the scoreboards in Brendan Byrne arena then moving down to empty corporate seats at the end of the 1st period. I was officially a Die hard NJ Devils fan. I never felt that way with the Islanders it was hard to get to games and I was younger so I guess I was a bandwagon fan. But never felt that wat with NJ they were my team, and always will be no matter were I live! I started playing hockey again at about 25 in adult leagues in Monsey Ny Sport O Rama i took so much crap for being a Devils fan it was not popular, with our Christmas Tree Jerseys Gretzky calling us a Micky mouse organization ( they even sold tee shirts of Mickey punching Wayne lol... Walking through the cow tunnel at the areana parking lot after playoff games chanting Let's Go Devils!
Great times and Memories.
So LET'S GO DEVILS!!!!!

I didn't talk to a single Kings fans and I had no desire too. I know we will never, ever see this happen but I sure would love to stick all visiting fans in their own section.



Would make it too easy for them to choreograph chants/etc and appear loud in our building....

I was on the suite level for game 2 and after the game I was walking out to leave and in the distance I saw a guy in a Kings jersey jumping up and down on the Devils log in the carpet AND spitting on it, all while video taping it with his camera phone. My girlfriend(unaware of what I saw) said all she heard was me say not on my watch and next thing she knew I was in full sprint mode. I got to the guy with his head down and for legal purposes let's just say the next thing I knew he was on the ground. He wanted to know why he was now put to the ground. All I said was show some class or next time he might not find such a gentle Devils fan. I then had to perform the great escape as his entourage was all up in arms and had every security guard in the arena trying to find me. Fun night.

As I was walking out of the Prudential Center I encountered a big group of Kings fans, about 5 or 6 of them. I asked all of them just a simple question. I asked why did the Kings get rid of their purple and black jerseys early this year and only use the black and silver jerseys. (The Kings got rid of them early this season). I asked this because I always loved the black and purple jersey.

...and their answer was, "whats wrong with purple, you guys wear red why cant the kings wear purple, I love our jerseys and the black and purple jersey is awesome."

I then told them, "you know the Kings got rid of the jerseys early on this season...you guys don't even know that? I know more about your team then you do."

Their response was..."why cant we wear purple, we wore it all year".

So these "passionate fans" did not even know their team got rid of their main jersey. :doh1:
Biggest bandwagon fanbase I have ever encountered. These people do not even know what hockey is, and unfortunately a lot of them showed up at that game.



Dumb post. They didn't claim to be hardcore passionate Kings or hockey fans, mister I think I know hockey but am a telemarketer whose life's purpose is to try and sound forum cool. :doh1:

Oh please stop already with this trolling "I know more than these idiots on this forum" sh!t. Your post trying to tell us that the devils logo has NJ in it like we never knew that since the beginning tells a lot.

If anything every single post of yours is about how cool or how you know more than anyone else here except you come across as Master of the Obvious

LOL..all I did was share my opinion on the Kings fans I met. It was obviously worth discussing since this thread has 32 replies.

The only one trying to be 'forum cool' is you right now.

Had two Kings fans next to me. Being on the end of a row, I'm used to getting up and down, but these two got up about and down, separately every time of course, literally every 8-10 minutes. After the game when the Devils won and they tried to leave, me and my father purposely got in their way while celebrating to make sure they couldn't get out and kept getting in their way when they tried to leave. When they got aggravated, I just smiled and said "See you on Wednesday." fvck 'em. Other than that though, no problems with Kings fans at all. In fact, the two sitting near me at game 1 were incredibly nice and knowledgeable.

If they put that much thought into hockey operations maybe this wouldn't be their second trip in 43 years!
