Yeah based on stories my father's told me, it truly was a dangerous place. He got our seasons back in 83 and he said that back then no one would dare go up to the blue wearing another teams jerseys. There were actually no fights up there because it was all Ranger fans. All the fights happened down in the corporate seats because that's where the other teams fans sat and of course when a fight broke out the "red seats suck" chant would start. The renovation in the early 90's where they took out a good chunk of the blue seats for the suites put an end to a lot of that.
