They should just use "You Cant Always Get What You Want" by the Stones

The 7 Nation Army chant has the "ooooh oh oh oh ohhhh oh" piped in. It's not like they play the bass line and everyone joins in, it's mostly the recording

This is so ridiculous. It's just a goal song. The Devils should go back to RRII. It's part of tradition. They politicized a time where fans celebrate. If you can't enjoy when your team scores, then when can you have fun? My biggest issue with sports is that it's become too political. I understand it to a point regarding the chant. But I've heard/seen much worse. Games are where you go cheer your team. There's a much bigger issue with alcohol being served at games and security. It shouldn't be a big deal.

Apparently the Diablos section's going to be monitored and threatened with explusion if any one of them partake in the 'you suck' or other 'vulgar' chants.  Insane...they're starting a war on the fans they can't win, when they don't exactly have a waiting list of other fans dying to buy season tickets.

Well that's just nonsense.

 

Wish these new owners weren't such PC worrywarts.  Just let the fans have fun, it's relatively harmless.

wow. I mean I hate the "you suck" garbage as much as the next guy. They need to pick a song and be done with it. If you suck pops up again than that's that. You have to know when to concede, and Lou/Ownership digging their heels in here is a terrible move. Do you really want to take on the super fanatic section? You can't win that war

 

Even the Mets know that it's imperative to keep a good relationship with the 7 Line. The Jets rolled out the red carpet to fireman ed before he quit. Major mistake by the Devils. They're making a mountain out of a molehill.

Is this really accurate?  I mean it started as a grass-roots thing when it was the supporters but to me the Diablos is something else that is propped up and supported by the team now.

 

Plus calling that section that is a slap in the face of others who are "super fanatics" but just do not wish to stand the entire game or associate with a lot of that crowd, which is geared mostly towards people who in the college age bracket physically, but also who are older but mentally still in college.


:doh1:

If the Devils told them they can still chant but they have to now pay full price for the tickets, they would run for the hills.

That's probably the best way to put it.  I don't even think it's all that much about the song anymore...it's more about the heavy-handed approach they took, and it's become something to rally around.  VBK obviously had some issues, but at least came off as warm and fuzzy in ways, and as a guy everyday fans could relate to, in that he WAS a fan himself.  The new guys are coming off as humorless corporate stiffs who know nothing about their fanbase.  Their approach almost reeks of a corporate takeover...change everything, 'cause we're in charge now!  The hell with attempting to build any rapport with the fanbase, who's been here a lot longer than they have.

 

I still don't have a problem with trying to do away with R&R Part 2, or the Devils' reasons behind it, but the way they've gone about it from day one is making them look like incompetent, out-of-touch, stuffed-suit buffoons.  This "us vs. our fans" mentality they seem to have...I don't get it.

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.

There are those like myself who have enjoyed going to Devils games less and less each year and the #1 reason for that is other Devils fans.  While the old days at CAA was indeed quiet, at least the other fans were classy and respectful and only had issues with Rags or Flyers fans came in.  Now, it seems as though a large segment of the fan base believe that if they pay for a ticket, it gives them license to act like complete douches and drunken idiots.  I also hate this whole "let's turn this into a college rival game atmosphere" with silly, juvenile chants with huge egos and sense of entitlement.

Maybe I sound like an old fart saying this but there are plenty of others in my age range (late 20's to early 30's) who also find going to Devils games becoming more and more irritating because of other Devils fans.  Hell when I buy tickets now, I pay a little more so I do not have to sit near certain sections and to me that is a bit of a shame but it is what it is.

 

Just the fact that there is a whole segment of fans who cannot let go of a stupid chant and are threatening boycotting the team because of it just shows where a good chunk of this fanbase is mentally.

"Sense of entitlement"??? What are you talking about? Only sense of entitlement is within the group of people that think the goal song should change because their delicate ears can't handle some jeering after a goal. Entitlement is one person thinking another group should change because they don't like it.

I agree.. That's just dumb and I've seen a few people say it, mostly on HFBoards.. They sound like little 12 year old girls that didn't get the cell phone they wanted for Christmas.

Sadly, this has become true in a lot of places.  See Flyers fans who sucker-punch anyone who dares to wear an opposing jersey in their arena...because they think the "Broad Street Bully" thing extends to them somehow.  What used to be some good-fun ribbing goes to the next step far too often.

 

I'm not into the chants either, not even a little (just not my thing, never was), but at the same time, I think this is a battle the ownership shouldn't have fought so quickly.  Let a cautious, unsure fanbase warm up to you first...though it's clear that these guys are in a much stronger financial position than VBK, fans are still trying to figure out who these guys are...would've been nice if they had built up a little trust first.  And the way they've gone about some things in the early going, they're actually making a fair number of fans pine for VBK.

The group of fans on HFboards, here, facebook and twitter who really believe that if they keep submitting R&R pt2 then ownership HAS to bring it back, even after ownership has said multiple times they won't even count those votes and the song isn't coming back ever.  This is the mentality of the group who have rarely (if ever) heard the word "no" in their lives.

 

That's entitlement.

If they really....truly....and honestly wanted a "classier" fan base, they should stop selling $10 beers at the games....yeah....good luck with that.....but until they do it, any attempt to mute the audience just sounds like a bad WWE storyline playing out in the arena.....I'm glad I chose to spend my money playing ice hockey rather then attending this mess :P

C'mon now, that's a stretch..... It's stubbornness or just being immature. I'd chalk these reactions up to more what Colorado Rockies 1976 is saying, a mistrust of the new ownership, or even more, just a residual effect of all this losing. 

 

My brother's in his mid-30s and even he took part in the "You suck!" chant over "Seven Nation Army".... It's not a kids vs. adults thing. Most of my section in 119 was saying it, a lot of the arena seemed to be saying it. It's just a battle the new ownership did NOT have to make their top priority first thing in a season, and ill-timed during a losing streak.

 

Thinking you should be able to say "You suck!" at an arena is not "entitlement", and I've heard that word misused many times.
