No offense, but why? I have always wondered why people who own a Devils jersey sometimes go to games in normal clothes. It would seem to me that the most fitting place to wear a Devils jersey would be a Devils game.
Do whatever makes you happy, I say. Yeah, some of the knockoffs can look REALLY bad, and yeah, I wouldn't want to wear them myself...but for some people, that really is all they can afford. Or maybe they're so new to the game that they don't realize that whatever they're wearing isn't terribly accurate.
Here is how I see it, if I see them at a Devils game:
1) They're rooting for the Devils.
2) They've bought a ticket, which only helps the Devils cause.
3) In time, if their budget increases, or they find a good deal, maybe they'll upgrade.
At least they're in the building and spending what they can.

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.
