And btw last night the Diablos were beyond annoying.  Was it really neccesary to ring the bell/toot the vuvuzela/play the horn literally nonstop?  I mean literally?  If you want to make noise that's fine, how about making your OWN noise instead of relying almost solely on props?  Or at least taper off the noisemakers a little.  At least then you wouldn't make us in the adjoining sections feel like we need earplugs (and I'm not a person that ever complains about the noise level of other fans) :rant:

 

It was particularly comical when you combined the Diablos WITH NJay and the drum in the third period...I thought I was at a concert with a boombox.

I believe someone mentioned it on here earlier, but the music was very loud last night! Could barely have a conversation over it....

The music was even annoyingly loud during intermission, in the bathroom.  I don't know when this tradition started that stadiums have to jack up music to concert-level but it's gotten tenfold more annoying at Devils games this year.

I don't know what's going on. With the winter classic and no local competition we shouldn't be pulling in crowds like this. new owners blow.


I agree that the low attendance numbers are embarrassing but I also would be curious to know actual revenue numbers.. Maybe the higher tiered pricing actually brought in more money than a sold out game at lower prices.. Just like how Tampa Bay has high attendance, but charges very little for their seats and definitely doesn't pull in the gate revenue we do

Still, no one seems to care about actual revenue dollars so they just assume we have no fans and for that reason I do wish they would price the seats for consistent sellouts

I'd say about 80% of the people in seats were sth's and some were plan-holders.  I doubt they sold very many single-game tickets (face value) for this one, where tiered pricing would really matter revenue-wise.  If anything tiered pricing combined with no discounts kept people out of the arena.

Did somebody Elias had a good game tonight? Lol
Ya.
Hell have a good game tomorrow too when he doesn't play again.
Whoever thinks JJ & fake #9 are going to pick up the slack is sadly mistaken. There's no way those two would be in the NHL if they were apart of another organization.
If this team doesn't make moves next year, which they won't...:unless you call players like Clowe a move...they're screwed for years.
My question is...how does this team even remain in New Jersey at this point?

JJ had at least 3-4 really good picks in the neutral zone, which I've noticed is something he's particularly good at. He hustles all over the ice. I thought he looked pretty good last night.

As someone else said, can you please go away and stop pretending to be a fan? Seriously, you might as well be a robot with your ultra predictable posts. Absolutely nothing is added to the discussion when you post.

Too funny. And by funny I mean annoying.  I refuse to sit in 122 because of this.  If I'm in the 100s I dont want to be within 3 sections on either side of them haha.

Elias didn't play tonight :/

 

 

I think you meant Zubrus and Jagr.  They and Marty were pretty much the only ones that showed up.

 

 

yes - i meant zubrus - those two played very well.

 

elias was on my mind because i wore an elias jersey to the game because zajac wasn't playing and didn't want to wear that one which i was 1-0 wearing so far this year.

Revenue is something we won't know, but yeah it would def be interesting to see those numbers. We are in the best financial health the club has been in maybe ever. But empty buildings and dead atmospheres have been stigmas this fanbase has been trying very hard to overcome. Last couple years seemed like we finally turned the corner, only for the start of this season to be bad even by CAA standards.

All that euro soccer inspired garbage is incredibly annoying. We don't need a chant every 5 seconds. We don't need props.

 

That whole group is becoming an eye/ear sore.

 

I cheer for goals, I cheer loudly for them. But sometimes if you're there with somebody....you actually want to talk with them about the game or other things. During stoppages or during play...you just can't with the din these folks are making

That and the arena music is way too loud. You literally cannot speak to somebody sitting 2 seats away without screaming at them.

That cant be because there is no crowd volume on tv. That's one thing msg doesn't do, is mike our crowds properly. The network needs to lower cangi's volume and turn up the crowd. Same thing when NBC does our games.

This thread convinced me, I am never going to a game again.

 

Now I too am debating whether or not to go to a game anytime soon. I can deal with the team sucking if they are at least giving an honest effort, but eardrum-busting music and noise has the potential to make the fan experience unbearable.

Just a little advice for the guy with the horn or vuzuela or whatever the hell that thing is called, you do not need to blow it constantly for minutes on end, blow it a few times to get the chant going and thats it. Jesus....

I just don't understand how that guy isn't also really annoyed by the noise. I don't think I've met anyone who actually likes vuvuzelas.
