    Crowd at TD Garden

    Is this how it's going to be this year?  The crowd was awful last night.  Doc mentioned how quiet it was numerous times last night.  They couldn't even get a real Let's Go Bruins chant going.  Too many band wagoners at the game?  People left the game early in a 1 goal game!  Very disappointed in the Bruins "fans" that attended the game last night.  Hope this is not a sign of things to come.

    It may be that a lot of Pink Hats and ultra-casual fans (with money) came to the game due to the historical aspect of a banner being raised. See if it changes in Game 2, when there's no historical implications. Maybe the loud fans will be back.

    I am so ticked off at the Garden fans list night. The rest of us would give anything to be there and show this team some support and appreciation.

    I'm sure a lot of Marchand jerseys were sold last night to the corporate sponsors and trophy wives, though. They'll look good framed and put up on their home office walls.

    Re: Crowd at TD Garden

    I get supply and demand, and this is bound to happen, but a Boston fan base is different than Toronto or Montreal. Even though ticket prices are also through the roof up north, at least the business folk put their jerseys on over their suits, drink a few and make some noise.

    Why would Jacobs care how a ticket is sold? They don't need the security of the secondhand market like during the lean years. They could sell every single seat directly from the box office and every seat would get sold to actual fans at a reasonable full face value and not inflated secondary market value. Drives me nuts...

    Tickets were too expensive man, and it may be a stereotype but generally the people who can easily afford those types of tickets prices are not the loud ones.

    I tried to get tickets - the second they went on sale - could not even get 1 ticket at any price thru the B's website but 10 minutes later they had 1000's available on stub hub & ace ticket - what a rachet.

    Like everything in MA, it's getting watered down or ruined by the out of towners.

    In the good old days a snow storm didn't mean a national emergency, now everyone has to stay home and inside once a flake appears.  And then the roads are jammed with those out of town plates going 2 mph because they are as afraid of snow as they are radioactivity.

    If you don't like the snow and cold move back to Florida.

    Funny, I have the exact same reaction when I see MA plates in Canada.

    But yeah, no idea what was with that crowd last night... usually the Garden is one of the loudest rinks in the league, along with Edmonton.

    Too far south or too far north breeds the crazies.  MA is the center of the universe.

    Re: Crowd at TD Garden

    After the first 10 minutes of the 1st the Bruins did not give the crowd much to cheer about, the 2nd was worse and the 3rd was alittle better, but not enough. Seguin and Marchand were the best Bruins on the ice and the rest of the Bruins will have to play to their intensity if they want to compete the way they are expected to.
    The Bruins have alot of home games here to start and I hope they can pull it together and pull ahead in the standings while they can. I know they will improve and I hope sooner than later. GO BRUINS|||||||||

    I hear you Bruod, but it is the whole chicken and the egg thing!  If the crowd gets behind the team, it can provide them with a spark.  Players talk about how they feed off of the crowd all the time.  Last night's crowd could not even muster up a "Let's Go Bruins" that was in sync, loud, nor long!

    Re: Crowd at TD Garden

    When the Bruins were flat in the old garden, there was a guy that sat in the first row of the balcony that would start to bang on the facade and the crowd would clap in unison.  Many times the play on the ice would pick up following it.  In addition, I think the game night operations crew needs to shoulder some of the blame as well.  They don't do much to get the crowd going when it is flat when it is not a TV timeout.

    It must be the band wagon jumpers because last year when I was lucky enough to get down there to see the Bruins and Leafs at the end of March, I was so impressed with the energy in the building.  When Lucic fought Rosehill I thought the roof was going to come off the place.  Hopefully it will be back to normal for game 2 of the season, as the Bruins need that fan support at home.  We don't want it to turn into the Air Canada Center.

    Do they have pink Bruins hats yet? A sure sign of the end...

    Defin. the fake fans that act like they know hockey and soo happy for the bruins, but yet the real fans are at home watching the game going nuts... while they sit in their seats. wondering what off side is...

    I sure hope this is a one game thing for the crowd...

    Re: Crowd at TD Garden

    i was at the game last night and yes the crowd was quiet.
    but i think the game was secondary to the banner that was hanging in the rafters.

    in general though,i don't find the TD Garden crowd any louder than most of the other places i've been to.

    Re: Crowd at TD Garden

    Fortunately or unfortunately since I am retired, and reside well off the beaten path in Virginia, i watch everything on the tube. However, a number of my family still live in and around Boston, but cannot afford the price of tickets. In my day the true fans overflowed from High school and college games, in the Arena, to take in a Bruins game live in the old Garden. Seems like those days, like so many others are gone forever. However, Fenway is still packed, as is the new Garden, and Foxboro stadium, so the money is flowing in. Guess all the pasion is here on these threads when we discuss Claude, Thornton, the Habs and Kessell

    mattt - The same sentiment you express regarding those corporate, well-to-do, suit types is the same one that has been used to describe the faces down at the Air Canada Centre here in Toronto.  Has been for years. 

    As you said it seems they're not the ones with the leather lungs but they are the ones who look at you with disgust if you're what they perceive to be as loud.  They should just stay home.

    I think it was more of the bruins playing a lousy game more than the fans. Maybe they went nuts during the ceremony to much? I also couldn't beleive at least it seemed from the view on tv lots of empty seats in the lower sections with over half the third period left. Pink hats and bandwagon fans have ruined the experience of going to sox games at fenway. I hope this isn't going to happen at the garden for bruins games.
