Revan Posted April 18, 2008 Share Posted April 18, 2008 First off, I truly believe that the Devils will win tonight and force game 6. I believe there's even still a chance to tie this series and go for it all in game 7 at the Rock. But there is a possibility that the Devils playoffs will end tonight. Two years ago Rangers fans saluted their team chanting "Let's Go Rangers" after the final horn while their team ended an embarrasing playoff "run", being swept by the Devils. Some of you laughed at them and said you would never cheer your team if it showed that kind of non-effort and sucking. I hate the Rangers like hell and I had lots of satisfaction in 2006, but I have to give their fans credit for that: they didn't cheer because they were proud that their team got swept by the Devils. They cheered because after years of losing they finally made the playoffs and gave them that little something to be happy about. I'm sure you guys were unbelievably proud when the Devils made the playoffs in 88. And you would be proud even if the playoffs ended for them after the 1st round that year. So, what's my point? My point is I would be absolutely embarrased to hear Rangers chants after tonight if the Devs lose. Everyone would say Devils fans left their team and stayed silent or worse - booed, while the Rags fans celebrated loudly in their building. I'm a fan of the team. I bleed black and red when the Devils win the Cup and I bleed black and read when they miss the playoffs. I'm proud to be a Devils fan. I'm sure you guys feel the same way. So please, don't let me down, don't let the Devils down and CHEER after the final horn even if they lose! If you're a fan of a team, you have to stay with it to the end and show that you love them - especially with those rival fans in the building. If you really love the team and you are proud of it and its history, you'll cheer it. If no, get the hell out and don't call yourself a Devil! If you feel that's inappropriate to cheer when the team plays this poorly in the playoffs, think about the regular season. We say goodbye to they team for five long months of offseason. At least we should thank them for still giving us some joy the last several months. They rallied from 30th place in the NHL at one moment to 1st in the conference and finally finished 4th in the East. Not bad for a team most people expected to fight for Stamkos rather than for Stanley, huh? Just for one minute of being loud forget about the Rangers, pretend they don't exist. Forget about the bad playoffs. The first playoff run in the new arena may end in the worst possible way, but we Devils fans should really show that we are true hardcore fans and we won't let the Rangers and their fans humiliate us! Okay, so... that's about it. I hope we won't have that kind of problem tonight anyway because of the Devils win, but just in case... Show them THEY HAVE FREAKING FANS!!!
