Perhaps the thunderstix should come with instructions of when to use them or a license. :lol:

As annoying as they were they weren't as annoying as the guy behind me yelling "Let's Go Devils" every two seconds for at least 10 minutes of the third. Most of it was during Bruins possession in the neutral zone. Again timing is everything. :rolleyes:

Rock- at least you don't sit near people who keep yelling: "hit 'em" the second the other team gets the puck (especially on the PP); "give it up (insert name of other goalie here)" every time the devs get the puck (even if they're standing behind their own net at the time); and, my personal favorite, "booooo" everytime the other team enters, leaves, or scores (as if they can hear them from the upper level). :rolleyes:

These yutzes were more annoying with the thundersticks than the three kids behind me were. At least the dad of the kids noticed I was shuddering everytime one of them banged those sticks during the middle of play for no reason and told the kids they could only do it when something was going on like a song or goal or cheer.

I think I'll take one of my old towels with me tonight.

The playoff atmosphere at CAA is usually what's embarassing.

Granted, I have only been to one playoff game, and the atmosphere was electric.. Game 2, ECQF, 2000, but this was after the Worrell/Niedermayer incident.. building was ready for playoff hockey.

The type of game the Devils play isn't one you can cheer. I mean honestly, how much was there to cheer about in the third other than some forechecking and the odd shot on goal?

The "hit him" people always crack me up. Do these people ever watch hockey? I mean, honestly.

I like the thunderstick's. The towels are okay also, but i usually get hit in the eye from the kid's that sit around me. I also have a fan that sit's near me who constantly yell's out the most annoying comment's. it make's you wonder if he's actually watching the same game. he know's nothing about the game of hockey. He's yelling for the devils to shoot as soon as a player has the puck on his stick, even when it is clear that the player doesn't even have an open shot. his favorite thing is to yell "penalty shot", he want's a penalty shot everytime a Devils is knocked down. The guy is annoying, and i'm glad that i'm not the only here who has someone like this around them.

It would be awesome to give one section black towels, the next red, the next black, and so on. When people waved them it would be a sea of red and black!!!

I remember the huge foam fingers from '88.
One night, when we were beating the pants off the Isles, everyone was in unison, pointing at & screaming "Hrudey, Hrudey, Hrudey".
You know, the player cannot ignore that.!

So they were better than towels or sticks - but of course you had the odd dolts who had swordfights at every chance during the games, same problem as the sticks - but quieter.

I guess we'll just have to be happy with the "Marty's Better" chant (when we faceoff against some quality netminders).

On a Powerplay........ "Shoot!" Shoot!"

That's annoying. Or maybe.....

Booing the Devils in and Eastern Conference like Game 2 against the Pens in 2001. Or perhaps half the arena leaving early because they are losing.
I love this team, but I'm sickened by how unloyal our fans are. Not all, but quite a few. Like I said when I started this thread, we are a fickle bunch.

The fans were a lot better with them in game 2. Bigger crowd helped, but the noise level was definitely up in good part due to the thunderstix(the package says cheerstix.).
