#973186 Should have postponed Leafs game / NJ.COM

Posted by Colin226 on 28 December 2010 - 03:20 PM

Another reason why I do not and did not want the Nets at the Prudential Center.


Because you KNEW there would be a blizzard and the Devils would want to reschedule the game but there would be a Nets game.. All hail :hail:


This thread is making me lol too much.. I feel like Crasher.. Between the people saying the Devils should make decisions for their own fans' safety rather than having the adult fan do it him/herself AND using this to hate on the Nets, who are bringing our team and arena more money which we need now that the Devils can't draw at all, I'm dying :lol:

Next we'll hear at games "We'd like to take this time to remind fans to use the restrooms so they don't soil themselves. Also, if you feel a rumble in your belly it means that you are hungry and should eat. Just looking out for you guys because we realize you can't think or make decisions for yourselves."

I won the same Frozen Over prize for the LA Kings game in January this season. The Platinum Lounge was pretty cool, Chico came out and mingled with some people before heading up to call the game.

I renewed my season tickets for next season last Monday and on Friday I get an e-mail from my account rep saying that I won the first Super Prize Drawing! I won the Helicopter ride and 4 tickets to a Devils vs Rangers game next season! So I'm happy as hell :yea:


Wow dude... I'm jealous.. Congrats

I always wondered what the damage would be to get in the lounge for a single game. Did you take any pics?


Tried to but it was very dark in there so they didn't come out.. It's a very nice, quiet setting with couches and high tables.. Same food as in the fir and ice lounges, but because it is so exclusive you don't have to wait and they never run out.. Private sushi chef too.. Nice bar area with wait staff to bring you your drinks..

What I hated was that my brother and I were the only people wearing jerseys.. And some of the people down there didn't even leave to watch the game.. But hey, I had a good time

Here are some pics from the team.. Click gallery on the bottom http://devils.nhl.co....htm?bcid=19543

What did you win Colin?


2 tickets in section 19, row 9 with access to the Platinum Lounge.. Only way to get platinum lounge tickets is to buy them to every event at pru center for the year or buy 10 of them for a game at like $350 to $500 a piece.. It was the best sporting experience of my life, so of course we renewed mere hours after 2010 - 2011 invoices went up

Back when they had no extra prizes for season ticket holders, the rigged in-stadium drawings were a lot more annoying but since really the Frozen Over thing is more weighted to the upper level season ticket holders (more likely to pay in a lump sum immediately) I don't mind them weighting the fan appreciation to lower bowl sth's.


Good point

Random can still be weighted. If I was doing the drawings I would certainly weight things based on ticket prices.

Besides, lots of people won the big prizes for frozen over from the cheap seats so I don't think the team is being unfair even if they are weighting this particular event.


But is it unethical to claim a random drawing when it's weighted? Hey I won a huge prize in Frozen Over so I'm content.. Doesn't mean I can't point out that the random drawing didn't seem random.. I was also under the impression that the drawings were for every seat in the house not just ones owned by STH

fan appreciation day has never been awesome and what you described about how "random" the drawing is certainly seems correct.


It felt awesome when I went a few years ago at CAA.. But yeah in the uppers we were laughing hysterically by the end because MAYBE 3 of the 25 - 30 prizes given out were in the upper sections.. And of the 3, 2 were like posters from previous giveaway days... We were only laughing on the outside.. Hurt pretty bad on the inside

If this year's drawings are as "random" as last year's I'm complaining to my ticket rep.. He always seems to answer my concerns well

Eh... last year they did a pre-game fan fest and then did "random" seat drawings for prizes.. No joke, the lower bowl just so happen to take home 80% of the prizes (and 95% of the awesome prizes).. It was horrific and obviously not random at all

Fan Appreciation day was really not that awesome lol
