I hate it when people just sit there like they're in a library and think other people are weird when they stand up and cheer when a goal is scored.

I gotta say, the game being explained to someone doesn't bother me at all as long as it is being explained properly. I do get annoyed when the "expert" is giving out wrong information or giving out silly opinions.

Oh, I got another one. People who complain all game about how the defense would be saved if only the team was smart enough to bring up Matvichuk. :lol:

Hey you leave Matvichuk alone :angry:

Fans leaving early with about 5 minutes to go in the 3rd period. Especially in a tie or 1-goal game.

Random rangers, flyers, islander fans at games when we're not playing them just their to root against the devils (happens alot).

When the puck is dropped you can hear a pin drop sometimes I feel like it's everyones first game I'm at. Or maybe it was just the lower (mostly empty) section.

Meathead mongoloid Ranger fans chanting "LET'S GO RAINJIZZ" when we're playing Tampa.

Ushers who don't know there has been a stoppage in play.

Leaners.

When there is no hitting or fights in a game. When the game is slow and there is no action. I am old school and love to see a hard grit filled game played. I don't know if anyone has said this but I will kind of miss Avery because he always made Devils/ Rangers game interesting and heated. Without him who is going to piss of White and other devils.

Wheres Krystof Oliwa? He was my favorite over the years.

People yelling shoot while on the powerplay. In most cases, you only need to score once in 2 minutes, so let the players set up a high percentage shot. Plus, the idiots can't see from their seats if the player has a clear lane to the net, so maybe that's why he's not shooting. If he shot anyway, I'm sure the fans would jut be overjoyed by getting the shot blocked and giving up a shorthanded breakaway.

Quiet Devils fans annoy me more than anything else. Especially when they complain that Rangers fans are louder. Hello ... YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! Speak up and give our guys a home ice advantage. Don't give me this "They aren't giving us anything to cheer for" B.S. The players and the game give us an escape from our everyday realities, and the least we can do is vocally try to give them a lift. If you don't wanna yell, watch the game on TV. Hell, going some place public and screaming your face off is half the fun of going to a sporting event anyway.

The worst thing ever happened last season. I was standing up during a shootout and the people behind me told me to sit down and be quiet. Hahahaha. It was in the balcony section and these people were a little too nicely dressed for the occasion, so I told them to go home.

I can't stand it when people tell me to sit down when I jump up from seeing a big save/play. Jesus christ people, some of us actually care....

Trying to watch a hockey game thru the annoying fishnet. Get rid of the mesh already-it destroys watching the game.
Flying baseballs (and bats) are much more dangerous and happen more often-yet they don't have it.
Rare and freak accidents happen-it's part of life-wake up and move on.
