I have to say not only do I totally agree with the OP, but also I was relieved to read it. I thought I was the only one who felt this way.
We were STH for 12 years, ending the year the Devils moved to the Rock. It was no longer possible for us to make it there by 7pm. Even then, we made it to about
15 games a season, plus ALL playoff games for a couple more years. Gradually we enjoyed it less and less because it felt as if the fan base was getting more disrespectful.
We attended fewer games each year, until last year, for the first time in 25 years we didn't attend a single game.
We never miss a game on TV and still consider ourselves huge fans. However the booing, vulgar chants, "crazies", etc make it more enjoyable for us to watch from our couch.
The comments here and on TG's blog are so negative and mean-spirited that I don't read them anymore. Every season new whipping boys. The vitriol for DeBoer is
something I don't understand. We have an AHL lineup plus injuries.
Anyway, just my two cents- I'm sure I'll be criticized and that's ok! Go Devils!
