I replied to a devils sales rep at the beginning of 2020 with the below email. Seems like I can copy and paste this for any future emails I ever fvcking receive from another sales rep:
I guess the delay in my email may have partly been because I was trying to determine how I wanted to draft it.
I’ve been a fan of this franchise for 28 years. Granted there have been some really bad teams during those years and some really successful ones. I’ve never been more angry at a devils team than the one on the ice this year. With the expectations going into the season compared to the output on the ice I’ve never been more disinterested in going to see them play. That sentiment has been shared by pretty much every Devils fan I’ve come across including season ticket holders.
This year the organization has fired their GM, head coach, brought Schneider back up from the AHL (can’t comprehend that since we’re talking about a goalie who went more than a calendar year without a win, if that’s not atrocious I don’t know what is) and somehow figured out a way to acquire a backup goalie as bad as Schneider. In addition they named Alain as the interim coach who is as clueless as Hynes was, aka Hynes 2.0. Fitzgerald (who I do believe should be named the new GM) even admitted that this team probably won’t be competitive next year and are still in a rebuild. If a fan hears that why would they want to spend any money to visit the arena to see such a horrible product when you already know going into next year they will be just as bad?
Devils currently only have 3 players they can try to build around; Hughes, Hischier, and Blackwood. Until they’re competitive again there’s just no way I’d consider purchasing tickets to see them play. Year in and year out it’s practically a repeat of the previous year and next season does not have any promise. I’m really getting sick of the Prudential Center because outside of 2012 it’s been one failed season after another. Would rather them move back to the Meadowlands. I’m even watching this game tonight against the Blues and you can get sick watching them, just a horrible performance. No more than a couple scoring chances in the game at best. As I’m drafting this email they just gave up another goal. They’re once again the equivalent of the AHL team. My friend whose a Rangers fan has been to many more devils games this year than me, same case as last year and will be the same as next. The Blues have now won 12 games in a row against the devils, how beyond pathetic is that? Buy tickets for this team? That’s an absolute joke if I ever heard one.
