I am no longer willing to see OUR HOUSE be disrespected and I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is. The April 3 game is a Sunday, 5PM game. It is also one of the STH appreciation games that STH's can buy additional tickets (link http://hurricanes.nh...ge.htm?id=64123). I'll certainly be doing my part to fill up the place.

I hereby issue a challenge to all Caniacs to fill that place up with red on April 3 and drown out the Buffalonians. Put on your big boy or big girl pants and show up if you already have tickets.



**Hope you don't mind cc but we decided this thread needed a new direction. Since the game is sold out, this topic seems to have run its course. Whatever that course was or whoever it was for.

Not to throw a wet blanket on the idea( esp as so many empty seats last night),but i'd think most of the saber fans that live here have already bought their tickets to the game, I know a few in our section last night said already had their april tickets, they bought both when first went on sale...So while would love a sell out and the reamining tickets all cane fans- just IMO most of the buffalo fans there last nigth have already bought for 4/3

After we beat them on the 15th in their barn, and they lose the rest of their games on this road trip, they will not be competing for a playoff spot by then anyways.

That's how my world works.Posted Image

Maybe I'm alone but I thought the Buffalo fans were fairly well behaved last night. There were plenty in attendance and they cheered loud when the Sabre's scored but I didn't see any of the usual boorish behavior we've all come to know and love. I did notice at one point maybe in the 3rd period that there was some cheering up around sec 331 and noticed security escorting someone out.

Maybe the calmer than usual atmosphere last night can be attributed to the fact that there was a paddy-wagon sitting outside the arena before the game with Raleigh's finest stationed at several check points ready to go?

I'd much rather see more Canes fans at the RBC but I don't mind the Buffalo games at all and actually look forward to them. Of course I also enjoy going to Yankee stadium wearing my Red Sox gear ;) . It does make a for a good rivalry in the stands with tons of energy but last night was a strange one for sure and I don't think it felt much like a playoff game till late in the 3rd and into the OT. Even the Sabre fans who tried to start the 'LetsgoBuffalo' chant put very little into it and were easily drowned out.

They're going to be here on April 3rd so go to game, stake your claim and let the RPD handle the out of control drunks. The RBC staff and the Raleigh PD are well aware of what they're dealing with and take every precaution they can to not let problems escalate. The Slug fans can come and buy tickets and all the $10 beers they want and if they can't behave, they'll be tossed without warning or explanation.

Agree with that!. thought there were more amd MUCH LOUDER pitt's fans the other week for that game... Was suprised with the exception of the 2 goals, they were very quiet and sitting on their hands most of the night last night- though did hear some lame stuff on the way out of the building, but typical sour grapes you hear... I also didn't any fights or bad behaivor all night, which suprised me based on the history, but maybe alot of that was because during week and not weekend and less alcohol consumption.

Highlights of My Game Experience Last Night

- Almost ran over some drunkard at 5:00 holding a "Raleigh Sucks" sign as he made a point to introduce himself to every car entering the East Lot. I saw him taunting as many people as possible with the same sign inside the arena

- My wife and I were thoroughly cursed as being heathens from Raleigh by another group of Buffalosers as we attempted to tailgate for an hour or so. We put our stuff in the truck and moved

- Another wonderful person from western NY attempted to take down my Hurricanes flags. I know he was from Buffalo because he told my wife and I he drove all day to be here.

- Once in our seats, the wonderful group behind us continued to pour beer all over themselves while making sure we were in on that fun as well

- The group of Buffalosers in the section beside us knew every curse word known to man, and used every one as well

- But to top it off, when we won the game in overtime, the bunch of Buffalosers on the other side of us reigned down hot nachos and cheese all over us. My wife was burnt and both of our jerseys are likely ruined.

I hate 'em, every last one of em. It would be different if it was just one game, but every stinkin time it's something with these morons. It's no wonder people with kids stay away.

“When a great team loses through complacency, it will constantly search for new and more intricate explanations to explain away defeat.”
Pat Riley

This isn't about them attending . It is about us not. This date is not on the 26 game plan and a promotional night for STH. They are loads of tickets available.

Our intensity as fans last night was below abyssmal. Multiple basically unchallenged chants by their fans in section 107. The Florida game was even worse. Yes, I said it.
I for one will not be left thinking I did not try hard enough as a fan when we miss the playoffs. No excuses. No whining. Be There, Be Loud. Represent. That is how I roll. Get ready for the horn in 124.

Here is one more for ya.

Wow that sucks Coastal. Sorry you dealt with all of that, kinda glad I missed it. Must have given you some satisfaction to leave the arena knowing your team just secured 2 points and peace of mind knowing there weren't any pint glasses anywhere for throwing.

I'll be there with a big group of 8 folks on April 3rd. Several of my group, including an 8 and 10-year old, have never attended a hockey game. I just hope and pray things are better just this one time. I am going to move our tailgate location for this game though, just to avoid some issues I've had over the years with these folks in the East Lot.

Deep down, I know they are not all bad apples, it just seems I'm always in the wrong place. Still hate em though.

I would have been in Jail and as many B-loers as possible with me or in Urgent care.
