I think your previous statement is valid. I have no problems with military personnel as well as first responders getting free tickets. But why teachers? What do they do that is different than my private sector desk job?

Ok and what does some dude in the army reserves do for me? They sign up for it, then they deserve extra praise? Ridiculous. It's a job, that they signed up for. If they happened to go to war and all that jazz, sure, thanks for your service, but the pedestal some people put them on is insane. What's more important, being literate or being able to fight a war? To me, it's being literate.

#1237290 Devils/Prudential Center Making 'Huge' Announcement Tomorrow a

Posted by ATLL765 on 09 January 2014 - 04:37 PM

Just finished watching the press conference.  Here are a few of my observations:


1.  Scott O'Neill - didn't appear too confident in what he was delivering in terms of strategic advantages of having PartyPoker be a partner of the Devils and Sixers other than it "taps into 60 million registered poker players" in the USA.


2.  PartyPoker CEO (from Germany I believe) - couldn't get much of a feel from him but essentially I think that the Devils/Sixers were the only teams with "balls" to actually come out and allow a gambling company to partner up with them.  I get the sense that he's hoping that this partnership will eventually blossom into something big, and IF, regulators allow, will eventually allow the Devils/Sixers to be the "gateway" for legalized sports betting.


3.  Special guests - added absolutely ZERO value to this press conference.  Guests were your usual suspects - Daneyko / Driver / Marshall / Dowd


4.  No Lou Lamoriello at the podium or in camera view


Here's my snapshot:


1.  The Devils/Sixers will become the NASCAR-type sponsorship boards for their respective leagues

2.  More degenerate fans will gravitate towards the Devils and Sixers - because essentially, gamblers are degenerates.  I know, I live with one.

3.  Lou Lamoriello's days are numbered because I can't see him agreeing to this type of commercial partnership with his beloved franchise

4.  The Devils will win nothing - because gambling is simply bad Karma.


My two cents...

All gamblers are degenerates? Bad karma? You gonna tell us their astrological signs next?

#1226289 Andy Greene in "NHL Revealed" ?

Posted by ATLL765 on 18 November 2013 - 03:01 PM

No matter what, it is going to be an interesting series.  The HBO 24/7 programs on boxing and the Winter Classic are fantastic.  If this could be 1/2 as good, then it will be a winner for the NHL.

HBO is by far and away, the gold standard for TV. Everything they do is awesome.

#1224459 GDT: Predators @ Devils 7pm

Posted by ATLL765 on 11 November 2013 - 01:26 PM

Vuvuzelas suck so bad it's not even funny. It's like back in high school when someone would find it hilarious to have an airhorn during a pep rally in the school gym. Except that person was an a$$hole and it's not high school anymore. Loud noises for the sake of loud noises are not cool. Or maybe it's like when everyone learned to play the recorder in middle school. Either way it's loud and annoying and I think this is a spot where most fans agree.

And yeah, only 1 Baumann chant per game. Whenever it happens more than once, the subsequent attempts get lamer and lamer. Like the Rangers Suck whistle. First time it happens, it's loud, then it's quieter each time after. Unless we're playing the Rags.

#1222929 If the team continues to struggle, does Lou start to feel the heat?

Posted by ATLL765 on 05 November 2013 - 01:10 PM

so whats the point of that whole post? We all knew all of that and we all know Lou did some great things. My point was sarcastically pointing out that it's easy to just say "well he had that guy and that guy" and ignore everything else.


Become a Penguin fan why? Cause I'm not closing my eyes on some mistakes Lou did and strictly focusing on the good moves he did in the past like some of you guys and cause i can give credits to other GMs outside of NJ ? yeah let's talk about having a close mind.


Jesus christ you guys, you're seriously like super religious people in a cult who can't stand someone saying something bad about your beloved God. Like... its identically the same thing.

THE IRONY IS HILARIOUS. You 100% missed the point of the post where Tri points out that all those other GMs came on board and already had franchise players. Then you point out two generational talents that LL had to identify, then acquire and you make it out like it was easy as pie.

You're constantly saying LL should make moves like Shero. What moves, please, list the moves here that Shero made that worked out SOOOO great that LL could have made and didn't.

You are in the cult, not us. The cult of anti LL and anti good moves. Yes, lets trade every pending ufa for picks. Sign every guy super early to big giant contracts just so we can keep them. We should be able to just always draft REALLY good players. I mean c'mon,  LL picked Matteau, like he totally could have gotten a Subban type at 29.

This is what you sound like 99% of time. You make it out like LL always has a better option, yet you can never explain how exactly he is supposed to do what you want.

Lou is going to be 70 and I disagree on past peformance being a predictor here. Times change and people change. The next great GM has not been hired yet because they have to get the opportunity.

If you can't use past performance as an indicator of future performance, why did you use it to support your position that he needs to be replaced?

#1222775 Lemaire and Younger Players

Posted by ATLL765 on 04 November 2013 - 05:43 PM

didn't mean to offend anyone, Ive played, coached this game for many years(over 40), the current roster no matter who the coach is, wont even barely be anything more than a possible playoff team with a first round exit,  PDB is not the problem, THIS IS NOT A GOOD TEAM .look at the islanders, how many years of finishing at the bottom with low picks did it take for them to be just a very good hockey team(not a great one)  Its a new NHL its time for the Devils to rebuild.

Please explain how a GM, who constructed a team that came out on top of it's conference once and missed the playoffs only twice, knows nothing about the so called, "new NHL", which has been around for 8 years now? You should also work on not sounding like Rangers fan when you post about how LL knows nothing and that the Devils only won via the trap.

#1221690 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by ATLL765 on 01 November 2013 - 04:59 PM

Jesus....back off McCoy  :wacko:  He did it, alcohol was alluded to (which probably plays a part among others who do) and that was that. I'm thinking he recognizes how silly it is BY partaking in it, which is more then i can say for those that continue to do so. 

I'm not sure how to interpret what you're saying. The words could mean anything. You being sarcastic?

Posted by ATLL765 on 30 October 2013 - 01:48 PM

The sarcasm clearly went over your head. Not surprising. But honestly though please stay home in January. don't forget to chant "you suck" from the couch  :giggle:

What part of you can't change the definition of a word on a whim is hard to get? You used indignant improperly, it doesn't matter if you were sarcastic.

And you are made of cheese, sir! Don't worry because I've changed the definition of cheese to mean atoms, so it makes sense because I'm sarcastic!

Can we change title to the useless thread? Zubrus is useless and so is the only guy on the team that can win a faceoff. Excellent analysis. LOL.

#1214258 Devils getting rid of R&R part 2 as their goal song?

Posted by ATLL765 on 07 October 2013 - 02:27 PM

Well to be fair we haven't had a game since, so know one knows if our complaints are being taken. But probably because they still consider "sucks" as a bad word. So it won't win.



You might be talking about the song and not the chant, but the chant and the song are now married. So whether we're talking about the song or the chant is irrelevant since you cant get rid of the chant without getting rid of the song.

True story: Some preacher was performing (forgot who) and there was an hour delay to him coming on stage. Reason was because of all the Devils logos. He wanted them taken down. I'm not even kidding. He finally came on though.


This reminds me of concerts sometimes. Guy is standing up. Guy sitting behind him complains saying the standing fan is ruining his fun. Then guy standing says him having to sit will ruin his fun. Both are technically right with their complaints. But sitting guy wins because it's the easiest solution (standing guy sits down and isn't having fun, but he still sees the show, guy sitting down doesn't have to be moved to be behind someone who isn't standing)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ a preacher complaining about the logos. WELCOME TO HELL!!

Seriously though, is he that clueless that he had no idea the NJ Devils were the primary tenant of the building?

And can this thread just be closed? I waited all offseason for threads that weren't about nothing, then this is the only thread getting action after the season starts. Damn.

RR pt 2 is clearly the best goal song choice due to tradition and it's a point in the game where the crowd gets reliably loud. Though someone suggested the "Hey! Hey! Hey!" section of Ain't Talkin' Bout Love. That was the only suggestion I liked, at all. It got energy, it's a rock song, it's got "Hey" in it.

The chant, while not offensive, is pretty lame, especially when we're getting crushed.

And JBJ sucks a fat one. Whoever chose a song by him should be fired, immediately.

I really hope they pick another song. I'm gonna flip out if this ends up being a story all year.
