Obviously, I am taking quite a beating for the article I wrote regarding the New Jersey Devils and their No Blue campaign.
For starters, I did not mean this as an offense to any Devils’ fans. This was an opinion article and one that may be I should have written very differently.
I guess what I am still having trouble understanding is why an organization, that has had attendance problems in the past, would want to keep a group of fans that has done a lot to make the Devils’ profitable during the course of the rivalry. In fact, many people call the Prudential Center MSG South or even reference it as another home game for the Blueshirts.
I can understand that the organization wants to have more of their fans in the building rather than having a bunch of Rangers’ fans. In fact, that is admirable and one that will more likely help home ice advantage.
With that said, that is still money that the team is turning down. I guess that is all I was trying to say.
Again, I am sorry if I offended anyone.
