#1103930 Cangialosi wins two NY Emmy awards

Posted by DevsMan84 on 03 April 2012 - 10:15 AM

Doc and Chico both have high pitched voices. Listening to them commentate together was painful sometimes. We need some low end (which is why I was such a big fan of Gary Thorne).

I cannot imagine in what world you think Gary Thorne is a good announcer. I swear if Joe Sakic, Ray Bourque, Patrik Roy or Mario Lemieux ever came to a sudden stop his face would be halfway up their asses.

Doc did have a high pitched voice but he did work on it over the years and it got a lot easier to listen to. You can def hear the difference when you hear him now and from a mid 90's game.

#1102766 The Race For 6th Thread

Posted by DevsMan84 on 29 March 2012 - 10:54 AM

I usually find that those types of people have never put on a pair of skates or picked up a stick (or ball, bat what have you). They just don't see it from another perspective or have the personal experience of participating in what they think they know all about. I see that sort of thing every day on a popular baseball board i belong to. They all try to be Bill James prodigys. While these people can be extemely intelligent and organized, they also tend to be very robotic, stubborn and condescending/rude to anyone who speaks other to them. Then when they are wrong, they are almost bipolar in their reactions. Not sure how much of that pertains to any of the stat people here, but usually they are birds of a flock.

I think I mentioned Stefan Matteau on a previous thread a month or 2 ago.

I wish we would take him just to have him score on the Rags in overtime in the playoffs. The arena would collapse under the weight of the huge amount of irony.

#1099096 The Devils struggle with their "brand"

Posted by DevsMan84 on 14 March 2012 - 08:11 AM

Except he and Kovy are rarely marketed. If I'm a casual sports fan in this state or area I barely know who these guys are but a casual sports fan in Maryland or northern Virgina knows who Alex Ovechkin is, maybe even Backstrom and Semin. That's the difference and a problem with the Devils. They don't promote their star players or their team well enough. What happened to the posters at the NJTransit stations or on buses? Billboards?

As for the Blackhawks they have frontrunners(which help fill the seats), but not just because they were Cup contenders. Don't underestimate how much damage Bill Wirtz did to that club and fanbase. They barely missed the playoffs in 2008 but attendance still jumped from 29th in 07 to 19th in 08 to 1st overall in 09.

When you can only get 15,000 to a late season game against the Flyers when you're in the middle of a playoff race on a Sunday with no rain or snow, something is seriously wrong.

This is a problem that has gone on since the Devils moved here. McMullen and Lou have always had the impression that if they promoted their players, they would then become stars and demand big money. They admitted it someplace in an interview long ago. However, they would like for you to believe they do this as a way to put team above player which is total BS.

Look at the player polls that come out every year when they ask "Which team would you like to play for if you had the chance?" Usually it is successful or traditional teams that are ranked high but not the Devils. The Devils are almost certainly never in the top 5 or even top 10.

#1096144 GDT: Devils vs. Bruins

Posted by DevsMan84 on 02 March 2012 - 12:35 PM

Game had a little bit of everything didn't it? A pathetic 25+ minute performance, a little bit of hope, a bunch of nice saves by Brodeur. Poor old man, playing his heart out and this team continues to let him down.
Typical Devils. All and all this is who the Devils are. Not the team who was 9-1-1. They can't compete with top teams 80% of the time and IF they make the playoffs they'll be lucky to win a single game.

Oh And another hat trick? Thats just fvcking lovely. Embarrassing.

If they lose to the Caps tonight they can seriously go fvck themselves. Inconsistency is key for these bullsh!t artist. It's absolutely inexcusable to win 5 in a row and then gain only 1 point in your next 4 games, especially with the amount of talent on the team.

But hey stay positive right? We've only been losing by 1 goal each game! Hurray! And it will get easier...oh wait, no it won't.

lol is it just me or does anyone else really look forward to your posts after a devils loss?

I am not kidding I just laugh thinking somewhere out there you are just going nuts over this. Agree with you or not no one can say that you dont make the board a little more entertaining.

MSG should add pools during the renovations since they have a fantastic diving team already playing there

I think if Marty doesnt play well that DeBoer would deserve the ripping in this case. Unless Marty lets softies in.

Yes you are correct

I wonder if that car-winning Score-O shot will be on top plays on ESPN tomorrow.

Edit: It involves a puck and a hockey stick though, so I guess not.

They would show Jeremy Lin walking down the street before they show the guy winning the car

While the food is much better at the Rock than CAA, I feel the Rock's food has gone downhill in terms of choices and quality since they first opened.

I like the addition of Moe's but still not as good as it used to be.

lmao this is my new text message ringtone. BRUTAL CALL!!

Haha I just played it about 10 times in a row and it is just as funny the first time as it is the last time. When he says "brutal call" if you freeze the video it looks like is sneezing and having a seizure at the same time.

I'll admit, I'm glad Marty started tonight. I am very happy eating crow right now.

Also those calls goes against the devils just as much so it is nice when they start going our way again like they have on this streak.

#1088000 GDT New Jersey Devils at Flyers

Posted by DevsMan84 on 04 February 2012 - 03:51 PM

Why is everyone whining about this? We won.

If this was a playoff game, we would be up 1-0 (or if you want to count the season series then 2-2). The number of goals don't count but the wins do.

Our third period letdowns are still haunting us. We just got to hold it together.

Cant blame Pete Deboer for limiting our ice time for the top players given the way Philly is
