Oh yea I understand that, its just gonna be harder for me to round up my friends for a game on Thanksgiving Eve without them knowing sections n whatnot. 

Or God forbid a technical issue happens and the tickets dont happen and I got 7 friends tryin to hunt me down cause I made them change their party plans for that night to come to a non-existent game...just venting, dont mind me...

The vouchers are going to be first-come, first serve...if everyone who got them uses the code to get four tickets that's like several thousand seats right there, and they're not going to include club seats in that so there's less of an inventory to pick from.

LOL I know right. Did you people honestly think they were gonna give away thousands of tickets and let you throw them all up on stubhub? That's insanely bad business. The reason you don't know the section, I can almost guarantee this, is because they will give them out as first come, first serve for the empty seats that remain unsold by whenever you claim them. Don't want your voucher? PM your code and I'll take it.....

Not once in this thread did anyone mention how it was great that the Devils were generating thousands of cans of food for the Food Bank.  I guess this is the world we live in now...where's my tickets, how can I get as many as possible, how dare they be seats in 100's, don't even think about the 200's Devils.  Get a grip people.

He's absolutely correct. It was a great night for the food bank and helping people who need it is more important then a bunch of free tickets and where they are at.

He's right in a bottom-line sense but that's the way the world in general is...the negative's always going to be slanted more than the positive and if you don't believe me check out the local or national news.

Hit too close to home for you?

 

I hope your mommy doesn't yell at you when out she finds that you took all her soup to the game. What will she make you for lunch now?

Listen, everybody knows it's a great thing the Devils did.  But several places around the world and US do things like this all the time without any recognition at all.

Yea I agree.  I'm sure somebody will find a way to spin the Batkid story into some sort negative thing.

1. I didn't go to the game nor did I participate in the food drive.

 

2. You basically just accused everybody who did participate of being selfish and not caring of the rest of the world.  People asking about how they obtain their free tickets doesn't make them selfish.  Even if they didn't offer a voucher for free tickets, people would still have taken the time to donate food.

 

3. While I'm not hurt by your pathetic comment, it was still completely unnecessary.

It amazes me what people can argue about sometimes. The Devils got a lot of food for the food banks, lets be thankful we have abundance instead of being greedy about it.

I think I am one of those that came off as selfish, which I was not trying to do. 

I honestly would have brought in food anyway, in fact I brought more than the required 5 items in to get my voucher. 

If it was 2 tickets per voucher I prob wouldnt say anything, but to gather 4 ppl (for me anyways and on a kind-of holiday) it is kinda tough without tickets in hand. 

just sayin....

It's up to 4 tickets.  You can get 1-3 if you cannot get the people together.

You saying I called out Namelesz is actually you calling him out, not me.
Take some time off the board and work on your reading comprehension skills because I
never mentioned anyone by name.

What?

 

You also seemed to be under the impression I went to the food drive game.  Not once did I ever say I did.  I also never said you did mention any names.  And you tell ME to work on MY reading comprehension skills?

 

BTW, notice how I put the YOU in quotation marks?  I did that for a reason.  Because I knew you didn't call him out specifically.  You called everybody out asking about their free ticket vouchers.
