I was at the game in section 123 near the top. He as in section 123 near the bottom. He was drinking all night... Standing up during play... Giving the entire arena the finger and filming the response to his trolling. I don't believe they threw him out. I was shocked security didn't do anything. That clown started it and is an attention grabber. We chanted to throw him out but security didn't.

FWIW an NYI fan also alleges that these same two db's were doing the same thing at their game the other night.

The fact that Deadspin even ran with this story is ridiculous. Nobody would start taunting a guy in a Parise Team USA jersey unless seriously provoked. Do you know how many Devils fans still wear Parise USA jerseys? It's not like that's grounds for taunting. 

 

This.  So much this.  Several Devils fans (myself included) still like Zach.  Simply wearing a Parise jersey isn't gonna get you heckled.

If he was flipping off the arena, that's definitely enough to get him thrown out.

Sure, that's great for any other home games. The problem here is it was the wrong night to wear Parise anything with people still angry and with the team's play on top of that. This is a pretty pissed off fanbase. If you did wear anything Parise, and you couldn't take even one comment, you should have put it back in the closet and wore something else. Even more so when you go to the game and want to be an idiot or be an obnoxious pro-Parise fan. People had to know that going in.

I was in 123 as well. Here is my account. These guys were relatively quite for the first 2 periods. They would stand and clap when the Devils took penalties, but I didn't see them trying to provoke the crowd in general up until Parise scored at the start of the third. That's when their beer balls and Napoleon complexes finally kicked in. When that happened, USA Parise jersey guy proceeded to flip off the entire crowd with the double bird salute and intentionally engaged everyone around him. Things got worse as the game progressed. This guy kept flipping everyone off, including the kids around him. He definitely took a lot of sh!t from the fans around him, but he and his loser buddies started all of it. After they scored their third goal, he went into his normal schtick and refused to sit down. That's when things started to get out of control and security came down. This fool begins arguing with them by holding up his ticket and filming them with his cell phone, all the while refusing to sit. The fans were chanting "throw him out," but the security guard didn't for some reason. It seemed like they were intimidated by the fact he was filming them. He eventually sat and, when the Devils won it in OT, they were awfully quite and understandably got a lot of heat from the crowd. Eventually, he stood up grabbing his armpit and crotch as he attempted to describe NJ while we were filing out.

I wasn't close enough to hear exactly what he was saying or what some people were saying to him so I don't know if any homophobic comments were made. I can confirm that the rangers suck-flyers swallow-Parise watches chant was used once during the game. These guys were as obnoxious as any rangers fans I've ever encountered, and that is saying a lot. They deserved everything they got, and probably more. I've seen plenty of people tossed at sporting events for far less than what this clown was doing and saying. There were a few other Wild fans around us and they weren't harassed at all. The only reason these guys got picked on is because they came in and acted like the total d-bags they are.

Funniest part of the whole thing was the "flock of seagulls" chant used to make fun of the one guys 1980's haircut.

I did see people heckling people in Kovy jerseys last game I was at, but that's a whole other situation.
Flock Of Seagulls chant? That's awesome.

The fact security did nothing is ridiculous.  Flipping off the crowd alone is enough to be shown the exit.

I got free tickets in 122 last night.  This guy was the jackass in this situation.  What a bullsh!t thing he could do.  He was a real douche.

Can we all use this incident to realize how disgusting some of these chants really are. I know devils fans didn't do anything wrong in this incident but it does show you how disrespectful and pathetic the fans who yell slurs like this really are. I shudder every time I hear it. So if anyone here likes chanting that just please realize how immature it really is. I can live with the Rangers suck chant, its a classic, and that term is more acceptable but the other one just drives me up a wall.

 

 

 

And this is an open letter to the nutjob in 120 who gets a kick out of of saying all of these slurs and 'Crosby watches'. If you read this everyone thinks you are unbearable. You are more focused on being a comedian every single game, and all of your chants are terrible or just unoriginal. Me and a few others won't be back in that section next season because of the likes of you.

     Sincerely one fed up season ticket holder.

I witnessed two drunk guys from the "hard hats" in section 133 leaning over a Wild fan wearing a Parise's jersey and screaming in his ear in a very hostile manner.

I wonder if there's a way to get in touch with that writer at Deadspin.  Not only did he publish a completely fabricated event, but he never thoroughly edited his article to address his mistake.

The guy deserved it though. Wearing a Parise Wild jersey to Prudential Center at a Devils-Wild game in the first game after he sold out and "went home" to play for them would be seen as a troll on the Devils fans. This guy knew he would get a rise out of people so he just started acting like an ass. Ranger fans pull this $hit all the time. They yell out crap during the national anthem because they don't know when to show respect and keep their mouths shut, they goon it up after their team scores and they pick fans who they know will start stuff with them to try and make the more sensitive of us "embarrassed" for retaliating. I'm tired of people trying to push us to be a "kinder gentler" fan base. This isn't sarcastiball. We should be making it uncomfortable for opposing fans. Not to the levels, say Flyer fans go.. that's just too much, but we shouldn't be pansies either. Not advocating violence, but i don't see a problem with a few insults going back and forth, or yes, even a certain goal chant. If words get to you that much you need a thicker skin.
