But my schedule is very typical of the current PAYING season ticket holder.
I think that's a very good post msweet, and sums up the position against Newark very well... and within it, you point out some things implicit in ND5's general argument.
ND5 is NOT proposing your schedule. Ideally, I think he believes that one would not go home after work on a Devils' game night, but would rather go from work directly to Newark to eat dinner, and then go to the game. Implicit in this is that most of the people he thinks the team can get at are single. Families compose a lot of the season ticket holders now. It's clear that has not worked well enough.
And he's claiming, although I think spuriously, that there will be no traffic problems, so that driving will be easy too.
And eat in EWR 41 night a year? Yikes.
See, if you do NOT OWN SEASON's tickets, the length of the hockey season (41 games) and the commitment necessary to go, is hard to understand.
In order to go to 41 games plus playoffs, this must be a part of your lifestyle... not just a special event.
While I admire ND5's conviction and I wish all posters with a cause would argue as articulately and with as much information as he does, he really can't be credible, until I see his $2500/seat for his season's tickets.
