But not this. If you're gonna argue that we shouldn't chant you suck because we should be more focused on celebrating the goal and cheering the team on, then you can't justify saying we suck, even if we're losing by a certain amount. We need people to cheer for the team, not against it. Not happy with their performance? You don't have to stand up and cheer and clap, just sit. It baffles me that fans of our own team would do that. I can deal with booing if the outing is particularly bad, but as sensitive as some people seem to be over chanting that other teams suck, I'm definitely sensitive towards turning a happy occasion, such as a goal for us, negative by saying we suck, I don't care if we're losing 10-0 at the time of the goal.
The simple solution to this all is: Don't like the "you suck", don't do it, just cheer and clap and do the "hey" portion. Don't like the "hey" song? Then cheer and clap and yell, easy as that.
No your right. I dont do it often but sometimes I do. If we are garbage that night, I say we suck. If the team clearly needs a boost then I stick to the hey and hand motions. I never boo. I dont think I ever have and ever will. As a fan, it is ok to sit in the stands and say holy fvck we blow. My "we"'s when I do do it are muffled back behind the you's anyway. I just dont like the whole hypocritical crap that the fan base does. Its not funny when we chant you suck and point at the other goaltender when we are clearly not playing as well. Its not cute. Its dumb and makes us and our team look like a bunch of a$$holes.
