The Caps Road Crew would like to remind all fans that when
visiting another team's arena, you are their guest and are representing not only yourself and the
Caps Road Crew, but the Capitals organization and their fans as well. Please
use common sense and discretion while a visitor.
The Caps Road Crew has a few simple guidelines we would like for everyone
to remember when traveling with us:
- Please cheer loudly and proudly for our team, but keep your
cheers and comments in support of the Caps and do your best
to refrain from any negative or inflammatory comments directed
at the Caps' opponents or their supporters.
- We travel to show our support for the Caps. The Caps Road Crew frowns upon derogatory
comments being directed at the Caps collectively or
individually. No one likes the bad end of a 6-2 rout, but
remember that the players don't like it anymore than the
- Please remember that drinking and driving do not mix.
When following your own travel plans, we remind you to think
intelligently about the decisions you make when it comes
to alcohol. When we are on a bus trip, the Caps Road Crew encourages
you to exercise discipline over your consumption of alcohol,
even when you do not have to drive upon returning to the
D.C. area. Please exercise a degree of moderation out of respect
for your fellow fans attending the trip.
- When riding on the buses, please be mindful of your fellow
fans and be considerate of them. We all want the best trip
possible, win or lose!
- Any conduct considered detrimental to the Caps Road Crew or the Capitals
organization may result in individuals being banned
from future trips. We seldom have any problems of such an
extreme manner and hope to keep it that way!
No one needs to be reminded of the incidents that occur when
overzealous, obnoxious, and often drunk fans come into our
home arena, Verizon Center, to support the visiting team. Sometimes
it is difficult to tell whether they are in attendance to
support their team or harass our team and fans. We have the
opportunity to set the bar and let the fans across the NHL
know that the Caps have not only the most dedicated fans in
the NHL, but fans that display sportsmanship and class unmatched
in sports. But most importantly, let's have fun!
