In Topic: Devils did someting right...

You should talk to old school Rangers fans and how they view "the Garden transformed" and the people they see attending the games in the lower bowl. Some of them actively boo when they show a famous person on the jumbotron, just to get a point across.

That's exactly what I am talking about.  We don't have as much of a problem at the Rock and there are people who are just there for the "free" food or to see and be seen, but that's not the case with a lot of lower bowl denizens.  I consider myself part of the middle class in this sense I guess and it bugs me whenever people decide who "real fans" are based on the face value of a ticket, either high or low.  I go to most home games and watch most away games live or on DVR.  That doesn't make me any more of a fan than someone who checks an app for scores and can never make it out to a game because he is busting his behind working nights to pay the bills or feed a family.  I'd love for there to be less infighting (for example, why can't the Diablos, Crazies, etc. all co-exist without hate from each other and the general population?).  It's just the way that our fanbase has developed and it's unfortunate.

Oh boy........all I was saying was I thought it was a good idea to honor those fans.

 

I have absolutely no issues not being "honored" nor do I expect anything. Just some over the years here have looked down on non-STH's as not being "true".

 

I don't pump the amount of dollars STH's do and the team relies on that. STH's deserve all they get.

 

I agree with your basic premise completely.  However, I also get annoyed at the flipside of the coin.  It's easy for people who sit in the "cheap seats" to complain about STHs or those in the clubs or even the lower bowl.  The amount of money (high OR low) you spend following your team doesn't define your fandom.  I say this as a proud member of the Devils fanbase, but I feel like there is more infighting among NJD fans than any fanbase I've ever seen.  There are people at every game who make me cringe ("Shoooooot") but, at the end of the day, they're Devils fans and hockey fans and that should be embraced.

Awesome wallpaper BCdevil! I'm using this too now, thanks!

My pleasure.  I just noticed that the red in the logo looks a little funky at times when it's compressed.  Let me know if it is showing up that way for anyone on here and I will try to fix it and post a new version.

 

I actually put the ice background on posterboard and had a few guys sign it after the morning skate on Saturday.  Ryder and DeBoer both said that they thought it was nice.

Take the stadium series logo out and put a Devs logo in the green on and it'd be my laptop wallpaper.

I'd say it's 50/50 whether or not they ask. It depends upon which clerk you get.
