GDT: Lightning @ Devils Sun 6pm EST

Was at the game...and I'm definitely not driving all the way back to the arena, and paying for parking, to see half a game and a probable loss. This is simply ridiculous; they need to offer some sort of compensation for this.

It's my personal opinion that they simply didn't call the game to milk the concessions for all they were worth for that extra 90 minutes. Call me whatever name you want, but it must've been blatantly clear by the hour mark that the game wasn't going to resume. Or even when they took the sticks off the bench. It feels like they held up the fans so that the players and staff could avoid the rush. I know none of this is probably true, but I'm still irked at the way it was handled.

Would it be too much to ask for the staff to make an announcement every 15-30 minutes? Even if there was no progress to speak of, simply keeping the fans imformed would've been a huge help. I instead wasted my entire friday night sitting there waiting for the game to resume. I'll begin my angry email now...

If there are more than 200 people at this game, you can officially color me surprised.

Hey OfficialDL, how are you going to repay the people who paid to be there? The fact that the Devils haven't addressed them yet is pathetic.

my guess for compensation is they will look at the games that haven't sold well so far and offer a ticket of the same value for either free or pretty cheap. there is no way they will give free tickets for specific games ex: rangers.

i think this would make most people happy in terms of compensation.

He did not make fun of the way I post, it was another thread where he mimicked another poster's style about 10x. As MANY other people in this thread pointed out, it was just as bright as it is in MSG and BRIGHTER than it was for some of the Winter Classic. If it is bright enough to play there then I can only think that it was adequate for last night. The Lowell jokes are getting old. If you are gonna make a lame insult, at least use the correct word. REMUNERATION is the word you were looking for, not "renumeration".

Wow, you found a type-o on an internet message board.....impressive.

I'll merely point out that before you cry innocent that you are the one that started with the lame "personal shots"

Again my point is that the safety of the players and the LIABILITY of the organization for any potential injuries outweighs anybody's personal game inconvienence.

I'm sorry that people went and were badly disappointed, the issue was absolutely handled the wrong way, but if there was even a CHANCE of it being more dangerous than a standard game for the players - then it was the right call. The Winter Classic is irrelevant because it didn't involve Devil players and wouldn't be Devil liability for injuries. Was anyone from this board at the Classic?

I do agree that Jeff needs to go beyond an extra half game to make this up to the ticket-holders.

As I type this I see that they are doing this - great move for Jeff - should work out fine! Happy Campers!

There is a big difference between a TYPO and attempting to use a vocabulary word out of your range, and using a similarly spelled word instead. The point was that if the other teams involved in the Winter Classic were willing to take on the "liability" involved with their lighting situation, then the lighting last night was probably sufficient. Kudos to the Devils for at least giving free tickets to a future game. (1/20 vs Florida is my prediction, but it should be for ANY game you want- I am OK with any game though)

This kind of petty bickering and "immature"

You don't know me, you don't my education level or anything about me.

You have no idea of my intentions when I typed this, and how many here proofread their NJDEVS forum posts.

Silliness. Stick to the issue

I don't need to know anything about you other than the fact that you made a pathetic attempt to make fun of me and used a word incorrectly. Regardless of your "education level", you are not very intelligent. I know that you intended to use a different word other than you did, and you got a little confused. This is beyond proofreading, you flat out were incorrect. The "issue" was you attempting to start with me over something I wrote in another post. You have your opinion (and club seats), and I have mine. I am done with this little pissing match.

Watch, that game or the Tuesday Columbus game in March will probably be the choices.

Read the thread.

You took a perfectly legitimate discussion about the lighting and invoked the discussion from the night before by mocking me with the:

"did you fly in and get your club seats?"

You brought up the issue from the previous post! ... and you do it again in this post!

I have no beef with you nor intended any "pissing match" but you are obviously carrying baggage from said thread to insult me here.

I PM'd you to resolve it, you responded with a further insult.

Cups, its a message board it flares up from time to time w/opinion but there's no point in taking it personally.

Lets resolve this by PM without dragging the folks through this.

It was in response to a rather idiotic question posed to me. You were strongly opinionated about the lighting, WITHOUT actually seeing it. That is what frustrated me. OK, end of quarrel. I do not take anything personally, and I hope you do not either. Sorry folks, nothing left to see here. Maybe the 2 combatants yesterday can go for round 2. :lol:

There's nothing personal about insulting someone's intelligence? How can someone not take that personally?

OK Cups, I publically apologize if you felt attacked or offended about the Lowell or lighting thing.... my bad.

My point: Player safety > Personal Game Experience - but its just an opinion.....

I don't want to "combat" - there's a need for more respect on this board as a whole, and I'm gonna tow the line as much as anyone else here.

from reading this threecups guy doesnt seem to mature and uses emotion & repeated rhetoric & doesnt respect opinions of others w/o shoving his down their throat. seems like he never stops posting either like 24 hrs a day in every topic. dude needs to chill

We all have our opinions - and he seems like a good Devils fan - lets just disagree with respect.

Everyone makes mistakes.

Really? I respect opinions of others. Sometimes in debates people's opinions come off rather pointed and condescending. I will stop posting just for YOU.

So if you're the kinda person who saves their tickets, I guess you gotta hand them over to relinquish that free game thing maybe. The seats should suck...I don't think people are really entitled to a cheaper game or a free game. They should just hand out free stuff on Sunday and call it a day. I wonder if people will be in Sunday at all.
