'The Devils Ride': SOA creator Kurt Sutter tweets opinion of Laffing Devils

There is a lot of controversy about Discovery Channel's new reality show, The Devils Ride, but Kurt Sutter, creator and executive producer of the FX series Sons of Anarchy, is definitely not a fan.

Fans and not-so-much-fans of the new Discovery Channel reality series The Devils Ride are letting executive producer Eric Bischoff know what they think of his foray into the world of motorcycles, outlaw motorcycle clubs (MCs) and the structure that defines this brotherhood on two wheels. Now, Kurt Sutter, creator and executive producer of the FX series Sons of Anarchy (SOA), has gotten into the act.

“Watched DEVIL'S RIDE,” Sutter tweeted on May 21. “Probably get in trouble for saying this, but i'm pretty sure my SOA actors could kick the s[***] out of this ‘real’ MC.”

Is Sutter throwing down the gauntlet to Bischoff and the rest of The Devils Ride executive producers (Jason Hervey, Steve Stockman and Daniel Soiseth)?

Thus far, a Twitter war has not ensued, but no doubt fans—and anti-fans—of both Bischoff and Sutter's work will have a point of view on Sutter’s tweet. At least one Huliq reader agreed with Sutter’s comment before he even made it:

Big Red Machine Supporter:
I think i like the ppl who sport the soa colors better, i think the actors are harder then the ppl from the laffing clowns.

And, fans have also commented on Eric Bischoff’s participation in this project, pre-Sutter tweet:

Anonymous:
Laughable. everything is staged. Its more fake then wrestling. The Discovery producer Eric Bischoff WCW, WWE, TNA wrestling expects us to believe Rusty Coones needs the wanna be fake, posers, LD to get a bike back.?? Ya right.

Yura Dork:
Maybe...just maybe the producer (Eric Bischoff) will read a few of the comments here and try not to inject so much of the silly drama and go for a bit more reality. Of course he is a huge drama king...remember wrestling in the late 90's early 2000's? ...all that hype (Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage etc...) was a product of Bischoff.

So, where does all of this lead the on the reality show road? One Huliq reader thinks he has the answer:

Anonymous:
I already see where this is going. Gipsy quits the LD's, starts another club, one that rivals the LD's, those loyal to Gipsy also quit the LD's (most likely the ones who didn't vote for Snubz as new V.P. will join Gipsy) continual trash talk, another major 1%er club steps in and takes the LD's cuts and Gipsy's new clubs cuts!
This is going in the same direction as American Chopper and Miami Ink.

Interesting idea.

Will, in fact, The Devils Ride go the way of American Chopper and Miami Ink? Or will the brotherhood unite once again?

Stay tuned.

The Devils Ride airs a new episode tonight, Tuesday, May 22, at 10 p.m. E/P.

The only guy on that show that would make it is sand man. The new prez is a joke real world he would have got his ass beat by now and the rest act like girls crying about a prom date they didnt get. Wait till a real MC Club comes in and takes their colors. Maybe they are the teaser to wild hogs 2! If they are real Gypsi did himself a favor by leaving those losers nobody I have ever rode with would be caught dead hanging around LD

actually the devils ride is 100% fake, they use to be a real club, but patched over and sold the rights to the laffing devils to discovery channel.

You dont have a clue about what Outlaw clubs are about. The make believe scripted laughing devils are a phony made up group. These panty waists are about as hard core a pack of girl scouts. They would be laughed out , beat down and have to take their clown patches ripped off at any Real 1% function.

I thought soa would be a joke Im hooked. sonny barger being in there and knowing he's been in film before I was a racing sperm gives it more cred. These guys (I thought) must have been Sonny'd rejects. because as much love as I have I know he is also lets face it an icon as a founder But also no stranger 2 media. I figured it was a bunch of clowns that maybe prospected for the 82 and this laffing devils thing kinda evolved from there. HOW else can you where them colors? Then pres steps down and new prez gives him the boot? wtf thats brotherhood. I watch because I really want to see them face a REAL club. Infact I think one of those holy rolling mc's would DESTROY them just for being dumb. But just like eminem gets moms to buy cds there is $$$$$ They say its "black and grey" I see B+W and a real Angel will too.... A white leather? but untill I read Mr. Sutters comment I thought the 82 and The SOA crew may have had a hand in it's creation. AND KURT.. I ride a Bonneville 750 ... why did you have to use a trumpet for that DICK. The opening of the show (anyone who watches soa and knows bikes knows godamn well that is a British Bike if not a trumpet shown"... That is my only complaint about soa these laffing devils are "clowns" and sieing as you have had the best cameos ie: stephen king!?!?!! AWESOME. SONNY BARGER?? Can't get more cred then that but theres gotta be an episode for Jesse James!!!! SOMEWHERE??? I believe he is an 82 supporter? anyone have any input? I give LD no props but do watch just to hope the angels confront them, and tell them.. this is the west you cannot wear red and white, Other similaritys too. The devil=hell... either the HA are profiting or these clowns are in for it. You would not catch me dead w/ those colors grey/white?? gray is wayyyyy too close to white BAD CALL!!!!!!! ML&R to the real 1%rs.

First of all , you know nothing about 81 and talking shit about them is not smart. I personally know some members and they are many things, but gay is not one of them. The clubs out there acting stupid are just fake wantabe clubs. My husband has been in a MC for 5 years and the club is respectfull of each other and their wives, or girlfriends. This MC is the 2nd largest in the world and has some great people. I have met over 100 members from all over the states, and every one of the I trust with my life. Everythng about the LD is fake. It is church not a rumble and it is once a month not every week. You have 5 officers in each chapter, Pres, VP, Business Manager, SAA, and RC. Only full patched members are involved in church. Prospects, Probies, and hang arounds and not allowed in church. Officers and full patch members do not discuss church with prospects, probies, or hang arounds, or their spouses and girlfriends. You wear a bottom rocker for the state you live in. Nomad are for club members who travel the states from club to club and are usually high ranking officers. So people get your facts straight before you post, or you look like an idiot...

Hey any club that wants to rep an outlaw life style. Have to "practice what they preach". Gipsey stepped down because his crew was beginning to act out! Plllease!! Have to be MAN enough to fix the issues. Simply put, if you want to be in an MC that want to be fighting,argueing,beating up photographers. By all means go join the /1%ers However, if you want to be in a club where the Prez walks away due to bad behavior? Then go join the "BOYSCOUTS OF AMERICA" at least there one could cry & complain why another brother disrespect YOU! MAYBE GIVE EN' A HANKY TO WIPE AWAY THOSE CROC TEARS!

THE WHOLE POINT WAS TO SHOW PEOPLE THEY ARE NOT OUTLAWS INTO DRUGS, GUNS, VIOLENCE. So you idiots keeps bashing them say they are not hard the are not 1%ers. you dumb retards thats the whole point. They are just a club about brotherhood and like the thrill of the ride. Oh let me spell this very clearly NOT ALL MC's ARE OUTLAWS. There really should be a LAW agaist STUPID PEOPLE.... I really like the show it gives you insight to a world that when alot of people think bikers they think its all about violence, guns, drugs, prositution when infact its not.

I do not get it! Watching Gypsy try to figure out the name and logo of his new club reminded me of my children trying to come up for a name for their club WHEN THEY WERE 6 YEARS OLD. The show appears to be a bunch of grown men who are still trying to complete the identity verses inferiority stage of psychosocial development, most people complete during the adolescent years. I will not even get into the ridiculousness of the episode in which the women decided it was OK to act like trash at the restaurant when the photographer was assaulted. Just for the record, Sandman, if you are running with a crowd that places you in need to carry a knife, I think it is time to reassess the direction of your life! This show should be renamed, trash gone wild!

Not all MC's are the same. There is only one HA and they earn the respect they get their way. I have met other MC's and they are respected as well but they did their own thing too. It's not all about crime, and I feel this show is exploring the roots of how most clubs form, plain and simple brotherhood. Not eveything has to be drama. Look at the HA and the toy runs they do, I have rode in several with those, if you are expecting the BS to be there it is not, it is safe fun, serves a good cause and is a great time with all bikers. Those that get it are usually the founders, searching for a connection they are missing like ex military, law enforcement etc. I think the show is OK, its real that I think we are going to see the LD change direction and Gypsy starting a new MC to get the club he wants, there is nothing wrong with that either, I think the LD disrespected him in a bad way by asking for his cut. The LD brotherhood is not vary brothely at the moment and I can see why Gypsy did what he did, I think his plan backfired on him which is why he is deciding to start a new club. If u want fantasy and crime all the time, try starting a SOA style club and see what happens. I am a huge fan of the show, best drama I have seen in a long time and it fits my world and passion, I also like Devils ride, its a reality show and so far it is hitting its mark by following a small MC. Life is not always a cookie cutter....

Ok, painfully watched last nights episode and it put the nail in the coffin for me. First, the whole bounty hunter part was so painfully staged, this Gypsy guy just looks stupid. Then at the end, they introduced the cast of the new club and who is there? Ron Kari, a wanna be actor who has been sucking the d***s of everyone over at sons of anarchy for a part, only to be given minor extra roles and finally banished from the set. If you don't believe me, check it out, he has an IMDB. He is an actor, not a good one but he was cast for the part. Gypsy's story is getting weak, "i use to ride with him back in the day" what day was that? This just proves once again that its actors and to try not to piss off the outlaws they don't claim the 1% diamond, well guess what, I'm an outlaw in a club and if I ever see these posers with their fake cuts pretending to be bad boys, i'm gonna teach them a lesson, especially this douchbag Ron Kari.

If you are a 1% and pride yourself on that , that is great for you. Is it fair to say any MC that is a club with the full patches etc. has to be a 1% to be a bad ass? Im just curious to your position because I know other MC's that are not or do not claim the 1% diamond and are very bad ass when it comes to protecting their own, I have seen it myself, they also are very diligent and fly below the radar, not seeking the attention of police etc. Again not trying to disrespect, just curious of your opine.

This show belongs on TruTV withe the rest of the scripted-fake-reality garbage. Discovery did a a diservice to itself marketing this as a reality show. I know some of the stuff in the other shows Dsc has is some what scripted but this trash is 100% FAKE. Was an insult to the inteligence of folks who actually ride and appreciate bikes to allow a man as great as Dave Periwitz to portray the biker getting Repo'd and expect we wouldnt notice. Fuck you Discovery. Sell out!

most people have no idea what being a member of a 1% club involves,and you know why,cause its none of their business. john Q.citizen is too damn scared to live free.wearing the colors of a club is a privilege and must be earned,which most people could'nt do.god bless the brothers who live the life and have the balls not to bow down to society's bullshit.in answer to your question,if you are willing to die for the diamond,then sew one on and be ready for the consequences.i have been shot,stomped and charged with crimes i had nothing to do with because of the one i wear. but it has never been taken off of me,and many have tried. and no matter how much of a bad ass you think you are,theres always somebody badder.

This show IS a comedy, right? Because if this is a REAL MC club and these are their REAL day to day operations, the LDs are the laughing stock of MC clubs across the land. And this is supposedly the fastest growing and important MC club in SoCal? You HAVE GOT to be kidding! This club, this entire SHOW, is a joke. IF I watch any future episodes I'll be watching because it's the funniest program on TV, not because it's a "real life" look at a MC club. Completely lame......that's the only way to describe The Discovery Channel's new hit comedy, "The Devils Ride". What a joke!

A real probie would have handle the camera guy in episode 1 without the ladies getting involved. There is so much wrong with this show that it is sad. A REAL MC is made of real men who have respect for the club and its members without the drama. Hopefully people will be able to see that this is a drama show trying to be a reality show. If you noticed they do not claim CA because this is not a real MC. Plus the 1% MC would kick their sorry asses, lol......
