They fvcking won a game, against a good team on the road, so there should be less booing all around, whether it's to the team as a whole, or a player (like Hall) individually and directly.  

Also, Hall is quietly riding a nice little consecutive point streak here - when he made it past 25 during his MVP season two years ago I said I would buy his jersey, and I did.  I got a home red one.  It's a long way to go, and given the way him and the team started it's not a great sign or likely to happen, but if he gets over 25 again this season I will buy another one of his, a road white one. 

Well, to be fair, for the next few games, he probably will get booed, especially if they somehow win a few more games. I mean, we are on the road after all. 😉

Wow this is a horrible take. People want Greene to hold himself and his teammates accountable, not run his mouth about the fans.  Not even remotely comparable. 

Just fvcking win. They aren't the 77 Habs but they shouldn't be this bad. The talent just doesn't align with the record. Get a lead and HOLD IT. Stop gagging it up. And how about a departure from our

I got nothing...

Yeah that was after Wednesdays game vs Tampa, I was talking about the Flyers game from Friday when he put his hand to his ear after scoring... 

"When asked about the celebration, Hall laughed, saying there wasn’t any ill will behind it.

“I thought I heard, I thought I was getting booed in the second period there,” Hall said. “So just making light of that fact.”

 

Which wasn't a fact because he was never booed during that flyers game except in his own delusional mind. 

Ok yeah, so he was responding to a question about him personally.  As I'm sure you can tell, I'm not taking it personally.  He's always made it a point to come out and say how much he appreciates the fans and thanks his team so I can't imagine a little booing of the team, which started this, has turned him into this supposed self centered prick or lifted the veil on his ugly persona.  If you take him by his word, not sure why you wouldn't, he was just having fun with it all.  He's a competitive guy so he was fired up.  I was at the Tampa game sitting in the Loft suites (not a big deeeeaaaaaaal) and I must admit, the booing after the 1st of a 2-1 game was loud and caught me off guard.  Due to the complexity of the situation, I didn't know if I was allowed to join in on the booing since I had comped tickets (@Nicomo, can you confirm?), but I certainly didn't think they deserved it so I kept quiet and went back to suckling on the the bosom of luxury.  I wasn't at the Flyers game so I can't comment on whether or not he heard boos but I wouldn't be surprised if it came from some Flyers fans because there was a hell of a lot of cheering when Philadelphia was scoring.

My wife and I subscribe to the notion of not taking anything said between the hours of 12am-5am too seriously when we are up with our two boys (and we have another one coming, not sure what I was thinking there) because we are at the peak of frustration and wanting to stab someone in the face, so I suppose I'm looking at it in that sense.  Like mfitz said, I'd be a little put off if the players weren't angry with the results thus far.

All that being said, I really don't care if he signs or is traded as long as the team gets a fair return.  I'm guessing there will be a lot of media attention around this meeting in Calgary so I look forward to seeing what comes of that.. predictably misunderstandings and overreactions.

There's nothing to give a benefit of the doubt here. It's a cut and dry story. 

He got annoyed fans booed the PP and came out and talked about that.... Fine, that annoyed me but I can at least understand the rational behind it. 

Next game, he "thinks he got booed" during the second period so it's clearly in his mind the rest of the game and then when he scores the go ahead goal in the 3rd period proceeds to celebrate to troll the fans that he "thinks booed" him.... When they didn't. He literally then goes and says he did the celebration because he thought he got booed. 

What am I giving him the benefit of the doubt about? That he has piss poor hearing? Lol

You don't like PK because you think he's an egomaniac..... I don't like Hall anymore because he acted like a total moron about this whole thing and created a problem where there wasn't any.

What's there to be in a good mood about with this team? That we just won one game on the road? Yippee. I still think this season is over in terms of making the playoffs so it's probably gonna end up being another pointless year of meaningless games. 

I haven't enjoyed watching losing terrible Devils hockey for the vast majority of the past 8 seasons anyway so disliking one guy on the team who is on his way out the door soon isn't really going to change much when it comes to that anyway. 

So your answer is basically no... you're not willing to do that lol

Well first, some said there WAS some booing, maybe you didn't hear it. Then even if there wasn't. Then he said himself he THOUGHT he heard it, did it to make light of the situation, not making a big deal out of it and that there was no ill will behind it. That's not what you say if you wanted to indeed "troll" the fanbase. The whole "he's trolling the fanbase" is made up in your mind and thats why you're angry.

Then for PK didn't go "fvck that guy" the first time i saw him do something egomaniac and when it could have been taken out of context. It took awhile before it started to really get on my nerves. And i have more than ONE story to support my stance. It's veryyyyyyy different.

Nope, I'm not. I thought I made that crystal clear lol

It's not just a made up thing that I created in my mind, it's exactly what he did and he doubled down on in the post game after the Flyers game instead of just saying it was just a celebration.

I'm not the only one who is annoyed by this. The season ticket holders around me that I keep in touch with, a group of 10 are 50/50 on it. Some are just as annoyed as me and others just don't care. Clearly a few others here don't care for what he did either and others simply don't care. 

I also have no problem admitting that I feel more strongly about it because I'm supporting this clown with my money.

We are just gonna keep going around in circles with this topic and I'd rather not keep beating what's close to a dead horse because I know how much that is annoying to read. 

I'm not gonna bring up the topic again here unless he does something new.

At least one poster confirmed there was at least some booing of Hall.  

I still don’t think he was right to do what he did, but honestly, I don’t think it’s as big a deal as it’s been made on this board. He should be pissed about being booed. I’d be upset if he wasn’t.

Every time the Gritty lookalikes in orange would chant lets go flyers, the Devils fans would boo it down. That's probably what he heard and thought was about him cause he's a mental midget. 

I didn't boo all night until he missed the shootout chance and trust me I was listening for the boos all night lol

He didn't get booed every time he touched the puck, didn't get booed when they announced his name after the goal, didn't get booed when he was lining up during his shootout chance either.

If people were really booing Hall for his comments they are just as lame as he was to make them. It does nothing at this point. I

I have never booed my own team no matter how bad things have gone in a game, but I still support other's right to express their displeasure with the situation if they choose to and don't find it egregious if they do.

I’ll take It a step further, I don’t even mind that he’s upset by the booing. He should be, isn’t that the point?

I know this Hall stuff has been discussed and analyzed to death, but I’m to the point where I think Hall’s only really guilty of two things:

1) Not having the keenest observational skills/ability to read a room.  I don’t think he ever truly understood that the initial boos were not really in the moment.  They built up over time.

2) Having an awkward sense of humor that when he misses the bullseye with what’s supposed to relatively (in his eyes) benign humor, it often misses the target entirely.  He probably thought he was actually being funny and meant no harm when he was “trolling” the fanbase with his post-goal celebration.  I’m guessing he’s had his share of “went over like a fart in church” moments, then had to have someone explain to him why his joke didn’t go over, or could have been seen as inappropriate by some.  And he probably said “OK, I get it, I understand”, even though he likely doesn’t REALLY.  So there will probably be more moments like this for him, where he’s shocked in the end that some people would get so upset and triggered.  
 

This is why I’m no longer bothered by Taylor, re:  any of this...I think it’s just something that due to other circumstances (like general sucking and very taxing losses) blew up exponentially.
