So wait, if those aren't essential then what is?


Paper plates, cups, utensils, toilet paper, etc... :P

The only reason the other stuff isn't essential is because I've already watched all those DVDs and the computer parts are spares.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

And I forgot my biggest pet peeve--someone who sits there and is obviously with a friend less enthusiastic about hockey--and calls the name of EVERY PLAYER THAT TOUCHES THE PUCK. Whether they commentate or not, it bugs me like nothing else. I know the players' names...


I must admit, I used to do that. I apologize.

I'd say the players names when they touched the puck. Especially during a PP or when the game was getting intense. I wasn't attempting to do play-by-play, or even to show off, I was mostly trying to prove to myself that I could keep up with the flow and that I knew who was who. Sometimes when you're sitting up high, it's hard to see the players' numbers right away.

Anyway, the last thing I wanted to be was that "annoying guy" so I cut that sh!t out. ... These days I do it in my head.

But I'm all for getting excited about the game and making noise and cheering our players. So if a Devils players breaks out on a rush, I will shout his name, like "C'mon Zach!" or "Patrik!" or "Go, Madden!"

Or if a Devils player lays out a big hit, I will yell out his name, such as "Alright, Colin!" or "Yeah, Zubrus!" or "Get 'em Rupp!"

Along the lines with what some others have said, too often our fans are dead quiet. Sometimes I wonder if they even know who our own players are -- never mind the other team's.

Haha...I don't blame you for it, because I totally do what you were talking about. I yell at the players like I know them, and like they can hear me. But that's not what I complain about...but yeah, I totally do that too. Especially with Zach because he just seems like a real friendly guy :rolleyes: .

I don't have time to read through all 11 pages of this thread, so some of these may have been touched on:

Kids who scream and scream and scream regardless of what's happpening on the ice, accompanied by clueless parents who let their little bundles of joy do whatever they want without thinking of the fans around them.

Ushers who still haven't figured out that you don't let fans go up to their seats unless there's a stoppage in play, then proceed to give you an attitude if you call them on it.

Lifeless, passive Devils fans (there are too many of 'em).

Overly drunk fans trying to pick fights...doesn't matter who they're rooting for.

People with really loud and/or annoying voices who insist on doing play-by-play for the duration of the 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.
