#1260527 Chico makes his retirement official

Posted by Neb00rs on 12 April 2014 - 06:34 AM

I don't see any way in which Chico can be viewed as "terrible." I actually find it condescending when people say things like "he's our idiot."  Just ask CR76 what kind of character that man has. Furthermore, he added entertainment to the games and made it fun to watch. The man deserves our respect.

 

 

BTW, 'goofy' I don't mind. Chico is goofy, and I love it.

I believe there is a miscalculation in SC +/- for Marty. +63 not +53.

Think Stevens would've allowed players to skip a practice after that sh!t-show poor effort against Boston?

 

Clearly yes, because Stevens is an assistant coach.

#1252723 Check out what the Devils front office just sent me along with my play

Posted by Neb00rs on 14 March 2014 - 07:04 AM

That being said, like others have posted, though I don't love the Devils telling fans what to do with their season tix to begin with, I really don't like that they're sending letters to fans like SH who clearly aren't in the "offender" category.  Why even take a chance on pissing off an STH when Devils fans looking to purchase season tickets aren't exactly numerous? 

 

Right, why chance it unless the Devils truly have an epidemic of season ticket holders who only purchase tickets for resell purposes? I could be wrong, but I just don't see that as likely (ala SH). This is just scummy business, the Devils, nor any of these teams are trying to protect the fans. In large part, the Devils will be sending these letters out to hard-working fans who can't always go to the games. Why would you want to stop a guy who has to travel on business, or who has to work overtime from making money back on his tickets? Chances are he will keep investing in the team until the end of his friggin' life as long as you don't alienate him.

 

Also, as most of us probably know, while ticket resale is not illegal, states, like NJ, have passed questionable laws stipulating guidelines for what is allowed and what isn't in the scalping world:

 

http://usatoday30.us...-scalping_x.htm

 

In New Jersey, it is illegal for a licensed broker or season ticket holder to sell a ticket to any event held in the state for more than 50% above the price the broker or season ticket holder paid.

Other sellers cannot charge a price more than 20% above face value, said Genene Morris, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.

The law applies even if the buyer and seller both live elsewhere, she said.

 

So, there are ways in which teams can request police crackdowns on this type of activity. The laws are completely unjust but they are what they are and in some of the articles I have read, teams HAVE begun to use the police to go after scalpers.

 

If sports teams are so worried about the secondary market, then they should hold on to their tickets and sell them at the last minute. If they want an arbitrage equilibrium so desperately then they should do it the honest way. But of course, they don't want to do that; they don't want to assume the risk that scalpers resellers do . The Devils sell the tickets at a price where they can hopefully sell them all. The buyers take on the commodity and therefore own the value and the risk associated with the product. The Devils now want to take no risk but assume all the profit for the tickets. Then the team goes out and sends a nasty letter to STHs and acts as if the organization took the risk and the scalpers are taking all the profit.

 

And to top it all off, they are attacking your everyday Devils fan, who goes to games but often needs to sell his tickets so that he can afford to pay his bills and thus, continue his hobby of going to Devils games. Of course, they can't even handle this situation with any tact, basically telling SH that he is committing a wrong and so they will have to punish him even though he has spent thousands on the Devils organization - and then the kicker: that he should still buy individual game tickets so the Devils can still take his money.

 

The Devils have been better since the move to Pru when it comes to marketing and customer service. This however, is a GIANT step back.

#1251574 GDT Carolina @ Devils 7:00 PM

Posted by Neb00rs on 09 March 2014 - 01:22 PM

Yeah okay Al Davis :rolleyes:

 

Wins are a TEAM stat, not a goalie stat.  If you want to believe the Devils will keep scoring 4+ for Marty and >2 for Cory then fine, keep putting Marty out there.  And of course we'll be out a first-round pick with no goalie in two years after Cory walks because of this ****

 

I surprised at how often this thinking is being perpetuated on the board. There is no reason to think that Cory is going to walk because Marty is starting games. He knows he's going to have the full starting job for the extended future and is going to sign with the team that gives him the best contract and playing situation combined, no matter what.

 

Even more what I don't get is how people are SOOOO angry with Marty, so much so, that they have completely lost their senses and their ability to fairly assess games. People bash and bash Marty (for only wanting to continue playing in the NHL) as some selfish prick who won't just admit he sucks and retire. When Marty lets in 6 goals, he is the worst goaltender in the league (though many of those goals were not his fault). When Cory lets in 7, it wasn't his fault because the team around him sucked and according to DR33, this is not the type of game where you talk about the goaltending. We also have decided to forego all reason and claim that Marty's goal support is completely a pattern of chance and can't have anything to do with his play, which while probably not having an outrageous effect, must be playing into the increased offense.

 

WE ALL KNOW Cory is the better goalie and should be starting most of the games. However, the desire to attack Marty, and unilaterally insult him over even rooting for the Devils to win, or fairly assessing the outcome of the game, is just a sad occurrence to watch unfold. Marty has won his last three games, we should be celebrating that and not looking to find creative ways to continue the barrage of criticisms at him. Clearly we can still win with him in net. Isn't winning what matters? No excuse me, isn't supporting a long-time New Jersey Devil legend on the far backside of his career what matters?

What are you talking about I have been nothing but supportive of Marty this season. Where are you coming from, are you bored?

 

Well, I haven't been around as much lately, so I just went with 5 years of evidence. I am truly sorry if you have had an epiphany and support Marty now. It was just a joke.
