Again, that has more to do with geography.   If the Devils played in NYC they would be the darlings of the media.

 

As a hockey fan, you should have enough intelligence to consider the source of those minor achievements compared to the Devils achievements. 

 

That doesn't excuse the insecurity of the Devil "fans" screaming out "Rangers suck" during a Senators/Devils game.    It's the equivalent of going out on a date, getting drunk and having your date talk about his/her ex- all night, 

Well yeah obviously it's because of geography, but I really don't think you can blame Devils fans for being pissed off about it.

I do think the Rangers suck chant would be fine if it were done like once a game, anything more than that is excessive.  However, I'm pretty sure I have yet to attend a game at the Prudential Center where I didn't spot some tool in a Rangers jersey even when the Devils aren't playing the Rangers, and the Rangers are playing a game of their own at the same time.

They are insufferable on social media. People who haven't watched 30 seconds of hockey this decade are suddenly lifelong fans.

This is pretty much how it is for every city with any sports team. Rangers fans are no different than people in Ottawa right now or Miami, Memphis, Indiana,, etc.

Had a discussion with a Rangers fan at the gym this morning about their game last night.  And then it moved onto matchups.  We talked about how the Rangers matched up with Boston, and how they would match up against Pitt.  Conversation was going good, I wasn't being a homer and giving credit to Hank where credit was due.  I mentioned that Devils were a better matchup against Pitt than the Rangers, and then it went south.  "Well, thats because the Devils play that Trap system right?"  :doh1:  :argh:

 

My response was "Yeah they did, like a decade ago, not anymore" 

 

"Oh, I don't really watch any of their games"

 

All in all, the guy is a nice guy and not a homer, but it is amazing how a lot of fans don't really pay attention to any other games other than the Rangers, and still go by the media sh!t that was put out a decade ago.

Had a co-worker come up to me today talking about the Rangers.  He is not a hockey guy at all as he is a basketball fan, but loves any team with the word "New York" in their name.  We talked about the next round and he says to me "Everyone has been saying from the start of the season that the Rangers are a team that was built more for the playoffs than regular season."  I told him no one said that up until 10:30PM last night after the Rangers won their game and it is all Rangers fans and NY media saying that.

 

At least he admitted that he didn't really listed to them much but for them to start making up sh!t like that is ridiculous but unfortunately believable.

The NY media says ridiculous sh!t like that and kind of makes it up as they go along because a vast majority of the Rangers' fanbase wouldn't know a puck from their a$$holes and the media knows that, and they know the fans will eat up whatever they say. I'm surprised they haven't tried to say Lundqvist played with the flu or something just so they could try and pump his tires even more lol.

Everybody called them a serious Top 2 or 3 contender in the East. After their first month, they completely fell off the media's radar though..

Contender yes but no one ever said they were a team built for the playoffs and not regular season.  Thats Rags fans and NY media trying to justify the piss-poor first half they had.

Unbelievable. Built for the playoffs my ass. He, like most rag 'fans', didnt follow the season and is using some filler, broad statement hoping that it would pass. Some people want to do a circle jerk anytime they see the words 'New York'

No, I agree, that's just filling in the blanks by bandwagon fans and New York media that haven't been covering/watching hockey the past 3 weeks... Considering 1/3 their team are former Columbus Blue Jackets now, saying they're "built for the playoffs" is actually pretty ironic!

You guys are overreacting, get off your high horse. "Embarrassing" is all the years we couldn't pack out our own arena for a Rangers-Devils or Rangers-Flyers game or having Rangers/Flyers fans buy out whole sections of our arena on StubHub during a playoff series wins. That's embarrassing.

 

But now you got people overreacting to the "Henrique! Henrique! Henrique!" chant last year (saying that it was a taunt/ripoff of the Rangers' "Henrik!" chant) and the "Rangers suck!" chant, others complaining that Baumann's chant is done one or two too many times per game, etc..  Then there were people making fun of the high school band/drumline guys last playoff as "busch league" and the Red Bulls Viking Army singing soccer songs, people made fun of them. Sometimes I think you guys would prefer 9,000 quiet people sitting on their hands every night.

 

Take the bad with the good. Be happy that we're not a New York or a Toronto whose fans have been entirely priced out. Real great "hockey tradition" there. The average fan or family who wants to go see a hockey game in New Jersey can afford to go and it just so happens that we've had better attendance this past two years than usual. Stop looking for things to complain about.

 

Unless we start hearing horror stories like Philly, where people are throwing up on little girls, or throwing lit cigarrettes, or starting fights in the parking lot, I'm very happy and proud of our fanbase... A "Rangers suck! Flyers swallow!" chant done a tasteful amount of times has become a funny tradition. If someone does it too many times, sure it's a little annoying, but don't join in; it's not the worst thing.

I once saw someone light a cigarette inside the Rock, it was pretty funny. Her and the guy with her looked completely out of place, your typical hip-hop look, baggy clothes, gaudy accessories, the woman was straight white trash, she was plastered and just lit one up until the old lady behind me decided she was having none of it, except the woman would not cool with being told to stop smoking.  Then security came and she was about to mouth off to them until the guy she was with got her to shut up, put it out and leave, lol. That's about as close to Philly as I think it gets here.

It was less embarrassing than it was funny, but it was just the perfect mix of chick who thinks she a 10 when she's really a 2 and being WAYYYY too drunk to be out in public.

i once went to a Devils-Rangers game at MSG with my dad when i was about 4, and the Devils kicked ass and won. everytime the devs would score i would jump up and cheer, and this DRUNK AS FU*K rangers fan (some lady) would yell "Shut that F**KING KID UP!" or "tell that little bastard to shut up!" and once she said "What kind of parent raises their kid to be a DEVILS FAN?"

 

another time my dad went to a Devils-Rangers game at MSG in 1997 where the Devils won, and when we scored, a Rags fan behind him would spill a little beer down my dads back. the first time my dad said "woah watch your beer there!" and the guy was all like "oh sorry man my bad!" second time: "hey careful with the beer!" "oh crap sorry buddy" third time: "watch your damn beer!" the guy takes a swing at my dad and they start fighting in the seats. my dads friend (rags fan) was yelling "oh sh!t" the whole time. NYC police had to escort my dad to the metro station and they bought him a ticket back to NJ and said "its for your own safety, sir" pops just says "because im a Devils fan?"

 

heres the kicker story:

i was 10 and me and my dad went to game 2 of the 2006 Eastern Quarterfinals where we swept the Rags. Devils are winning 2-0 entering the 3rd, so i ask if i can go watch the Rangers come out. i walk to the tunnel and as Weekes leads them out i just start lambasting the Rangers with insults and taunts, while the rest of Devils Army just stands there stunned! then some rangers player (cant remember who) looks up and starts to yell back, but when he sees its a 10 year old, the ENTIRE TEAM just bows their heads in shame and keep walking. Devils fans just start cheering me and high fiving me, it was a blast. then i come to realize my entire taunting episode was caught by a TV camera in the tunnel. I don't know where the footage went.

 

so yeah me and my dad have had a few clashes with Rags fans.

JP1995, welcome to the forums. I have a funny feeling you and your dad probably bring a little of the unwanted attention from Ranger fans unto yourselves...just a hunch.

I usually avoid MSG Devil-Ranger games. For one, I don't find very many Ranger fans fun to talk to. For another, the ONLY fight I ever got into was in an MSG bathroom, during a Devil-Ranger game.

I've told this one before, but to sum up:

I was taking a whizz and a Ranger fan told me to go into the ladies' room with the other Devils' fans. He sounded like he was kidding in a jovial way, so I coughed back "Make the playoffs!" (It was 1999).

He got out of his place in line and gave me a slap on the back of the head (not hard, but hard enough to be annoying)...keep in mind I wasn't done pissing yet. "fvcking fa**ot Devils fan!"

Me: "C'mon man, I was kidding with you. I'm not looking for trouble."
Another whack to the back of the head, harder than the last. "C'mon, say something now tough guy, fvcking fa**ot Devils fan."

I turn and make eye contact with him. I have to admit, the guy was scary...I'll never forget his eyes. He has psycho eyes for sure. All I said was "Don't do that again."

He did it again. Really hard this time.

I lost it.

"You fvcker!" I punched him right in the face and he lost his balance and fell back into a wall. I pinned him up with my elbow and popped him in the face another six times or so. Then I just lost it, saying things like "You piece of sh!t mother fvcker, you see what you made me do? Why couldn't you just walk away?" The weird thing was that the bathroom was fairly crowded, but no one did anything to break it up. No security, which was a blessing for me.

I stayed for the rest of the game (Devils won 4-2 I think), but I really didn't enjoy it. The fight kind of left me feeling shaken and bummed out...some people enjoy that stuff and go looking for it, but I don't. I just wanted to watch a hockey game.

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.
