Hate to bring this topic back from the dead but what I heard about what happened at the STH event last night on both FB and HFBoards really burns me up.
The event was basically the fans interacting with players on various different panels. The panels were usually around 3-4 players each. From what I heard last night and today, when Salvador went up people, Devils "fans", actually were booing him! Not only that but a few people were observed getting up and leaving when he went up.
How fvcking disrespectful is that? These are paying STH who would boo their own captain? I don't care if you love him or hate him, to do this at a meet and greet event where it is supposed to be a friendly atmosphere is beyond terrible. I have ragged on Marty here and there throughout the years but I would never boo him at an event like this. The "fans" that did this are completely classless are rude. I don't know how I would have reacted to the booing fans, but it wouldn't be pretty.
I wish I could say I am surprised, but I am not. This is what a decent chunk of our fanbase is these days and I am embarrassed to be rooting for the same team as them. This is why I really do hate a decent chunk of our fanbase.
