They should just make it Song 2 by Blur. They use it after wins anyway.

Here's something to try, how about playing no song? Just let the crowd be loud and cheer. At least that would be something different.

 

I'd be all for that at this point...but of course then the crowd would start chanting 'you suck' and it would sort of defeat the purpose of not having a song.  Then we'd look even more pigheaded for doing it.

Ya but our fanbase now has the balls to boo our own team's goals. That has to count for something. 

 

Philly fans booing Santa was ballsy.  Devils fans booing our own goals is flat out repulsive imo.

Eh, they're running a business and their "line in the sand" over the work "suck" is asinine.   Keep the rubes happy, it's been a rough year or so with a lockout and a sh!tty season and Kovalchuk taking off.   If they're going to be honest in their reporting like they were tonight we'll be able to see what effect pissing off part of the market has.

Nobody was booing the team. Wake up and realize that.

This whole thing is stupid because the minority group of people who don't like the you suck chant choose to bitch and moan. If you don't like it then don't chant it, why is that so hard to follow?

The vast majority showed tonight how much they dislike what the devils did.

Especially when the crowd's going to chant Rangers Suck, Flyers Swallow five times every game anyway.  But oh we'll draw the line at saying team x sucks because we can.

I wouldn't be opposed to it, but the 2 syllable "woo-hoo" would be vulnerable to certain chants.

 

I'd be all for that at this point...but of course then the crowd would start chanting 'you suck' and it would sort of defeat the purpose of not having a song.  Then we'd look even more pigheaded for doing it.

 

Yea it would be something different.  Not every baseball team plays a song after a home run.  Why wouldn't it work in hockey to not play any song?

The fact Devils fans are so concerned over a stupid goal song is ridiculous.  It's possible the new owners are behind this.  In which case, Devils fans should be grateful since our debt is now gone.  It's stupid to make such a big deal over a goal song.

Yep, and then give them a sh!tty song by a Jersey cliche which can't be clapped to.   So, we avoid being a Jersey cliche by using one.

There is absolutely nothing the organization can do to get rid of the Rangers suck, Flyers swallow chant.  Getting rid of "you suck" was a simple changing of the goal song.

That's fine, but I have a feeling fans will get over it when they can chant "you suck" easily into a new song. There was no crazy response the first time RR2 was replaced. People were disappointed, but not like this. It was clearly a favourite for the fans to chant. 

 

I think the team would want the fans input into a new song, but they knew this backlash was coming, so there was no point in even asking fans what they want. 

 

Since it seems it's back to the drawing board....what about the song the players came out to tonight (Light Em Up)? The sound and the lyrics make sense for a goal song.

There certainly was a backlash the last time...just not as vocal.  There was also a huge positive response when the song came back.

You didn't have Twitter last time, or TG's blog, or any of the other stuff that would make a protest spread.  But there was a clear pushback from the fans, no question about it.  And like max said, they're picking the wrong fight at the wrong time.  Still doesn't give the fans license to do what they did tonight, that was the equivalent of a five-year old throwing a tantrum.

I dont know about any of you. But my whole section was chanting Hey You Suck! after the goals.

 

That should be telling enough. They BOOED after the first Devils goal because everyone was in disbelief over the horn being changed to fvcking Bon Jovi.

Both sides are being juvenile, I don't do the you suck part but if they gave me something I can't even clap to, I'd be pissed.   They might as well just do the Carolina random noise song if they aren't going to give you something with a beat.

 

And might I add, this is on top of telling STH they can only re-sell their tickets so much before getting tagged.    Because STH market pricing seats is hurting them, when they give out $35 Youth Hockey offers to every game last season

I found it hilarious that they changed the goal song because of the "you suck" but they'll play a song during breaks like Thrift Shop where the first line is literally "Walk into the club like 'What up, I got a big cock.'" But anyway, I LOVE that the fans had the balls to push back and boo the song. Never would've happened in the past at all. People were genuinely mad about it as well. Guess we'll see what the Devils care more about, the fans chanting "you suck" or potentially booing after every single goal this season, because I don't see it stopping. I guess when you use a slogan like "We are Jersey" you have to accept the Jersey attitude with it haha.

This is nothing to be proud of.

Was it the NBC Sports theme or something? It does sound like it be overplayed, but I can't remember from what exactly. Don't think I'd ever heard the whole song before. 

 

I don't think there is a fanbase that as ever cared more about a goal song than Devils fans. Not saying that is a bad thing at all, but just a fact.

 

You're lucky cause the actual song is just boring and repetitive imo.  First time I heard it on the radio I changed the station and can't get away from that song since.  Nice hook, but just nails on a chalkboard anoying.

 

First time the song was changed cause of the child porn charges or allegations with Garry Glitter.  If you can bring a song back from an artist acused of being a pedophile, heaing a crowd chat you suck isn't nearly as bad.

 

My biggest gripe with the song is that it sounds way to close to the rangers song.  That was my first though when I heard it the other day, was the first comment from my friend sitting next to me.  If you are going to change it, it better be good.  I personally think Fandango's entrance from wwe would be a great choice.  I have never seen a wrestlers entrance be more popular then the actual wrestler.  

 

 

any anyone with half a brain knows they were booing the song and not the goal,  2nd goal you heard the cheers until the song came on.   If you think its embarrassing fro this fanbase, you don't know this fanbase.  Where's the clip of gary thorne coming out of commercial on our first cup run hearing the sucks chant on the starting lineup(and what happend to swallows for the goalie? That stuck in the caa still?)

 

If it's one thing this fanbase is known for, it's booing.

 

You  can take almost any song and add a you suck or rangers suck to it.  Usually a game we play while getting bombarded with non stop noise and distractions while the game isn't playing. 

 

And how long before the hells bell gong goes off after announcing a goal will start a chant? 3 more games?

 

Last also,  if you don't let the fans chant you suck during a goal, don't be suprised if the next chant they come up with is actually more obscene

Because fans like what they like and hate this forced trash?

 

Also to the above. LOL I'd love Fandangoing along to the goals but I'm certain most people won't have a clue who Fandango is.
