The first one - Kings v. Ducks. A defining moment.

Gentlemen (and ladies):

So...I have had in my head a vision for a few years. It involved a game. A hockey game. A large contingent of fellow fans, crazy, loud, intense. 20? 30? 50? Yeah. Something like that. We are at Staples. Perhaps at Honda Center when the Kings play the Ducks. Everyone wears a jersey. Everyone sits together in one section.

"Let's Go Kings!" Not a faint call. Loud. Constant. All game.

Kings score. The pogo. Each person. Every person.

So loud that Bob Miller, Jim Fox, Nick and Daryl take notice and comment on it.

So loud that Hammond writes about the "section" of Kings fans

Most importantly, so loud that the players notice - and they feed off it

Saturday April 3 (@ Staples), OR

Tuesday April 6 (@ Honda Center)

I want to make this happen...

Can we make this happen? You want to be part of it?

PLEASE VOTE IF YOU ARE IN. We are relying on the votes, not the posts to confirm head count. If you can make both (as of right now, we don't know which yet), then click on both before you vote.

Lets contact the Kings about getting a bunch of tickets in one section. (I'll take the oar and call my season seat rep tomorrow)

What I need is for people who are in to commit on this thread so I can get an idea. We may be able to get a suite, but I dont know if that would have the same effect.

Speak and join in!

No suites.

The lower bowl ideally. It doesn't matter where.

Marc, call me when you reach him. I want to get the details to the boys on here fast to get commitments and make this a game we'll never forget.

You know I'm in....

I think it would be cooler to do it at Honda Center though.

It is tempting. We would take over the arena. We would ruin every Duck fans' night. The players would love it. But, we need uniformity first. For the first one, we should do Staples. I want this to become a gang that grows bigger and eventually invades Honda Center, not just attend a game there.

... If we were talking a Kings-Ducks playoff game, no question I would be there.

But to see the Kings go down to Anaheim and beat up on the feeble again during the regular season?

Maybe.

Check back often to this thread. We will have updates as soon as DIEHARD gets the details. I will be calling as well.

Early commitments pending the price would be helpful...much more helpful than "maybe" and "tempting"

No names. No slogans for it. Just noise. A level of passion and intensity not seen in fans. Unprecedented. If it must get a name, let it earn the name.

I want us to land on ESPN and NHL on the Fly.

We also don't limit this to Duck games. It just starts with Duck games.

We will call it the 'Duck Roast' only if you set the stuffed duck on fire in the stands.

THAT'S how you earn a moniker.

Zad, you need to just add a poll with the voters name shown publicly. Just YES or NO. It will be easier to keep a running tally.

Depending on ticket prices, I'd be down to go to the Sat. April 3rd game at Staples.

We'd have to do this at Honda center, get as big a section as possible. The logistics might be tricky but it's just a matter of getting the section.
