Well my mistake then. But at least with Nashville they play that Tim McGraw song first to truly celebrate the goal.

There is a tremendous amount of tradition with that song and this franchise. I believe we were the first organization to use it when the team was still playing in Colorado, and it was the goal song for all 3 cup championships and 5 trips to the finals. It morphed into the you suck version after the 2005 lockout, but it has been a staple at Devils games for virtually our entire existence. There was going to be blow back no matter what they changed it to, but to use such a horrible, cliche song is the worst part. Give it a few games, either Rock and Roll part II will be back, or they will try something else because the booing and impromptu "you suck" chants aren't going to stop.

Well the goal horn too was part of all 3 cups as well. Yet we don't have that. IMO, any tradition from CAA doesn't have to come over to the Rock. There's nothing wrong with creating new traditions considering it's a new building.

Posted my idea elsewhere so here it is....

 

You know what would be funny, they bring back R&R and right after HEY! they blast the goal horn and drown everybody out. The people crying about their song get it back and the people crying about the YOU SUCK! wouldn't hear it. Lots of teams blast their goal horns a bunch of times for no reason.

Holy christ could people understand that (at least) my objection, and most of the other objections expressed in this thread, have little to do with profanity?  It has to do with celebrating a goal by mocking the other team.  It'd basically be inexplicable to someone you were explaining sports to, or indeed, even someone you were bringing to a Devils game for the first time.  'Okay, now when the Devils score a goal, they do this chant, 'you suck' - but it's directed at the other team.'  'So, the other team sucks for giving up a goal to the Devils?  Doesn't that mean the Devils suck too, by implication?  I mean, if you suck for having given up a goal to them, then they probably suck too'  'No, no, they're great, it's complicated, it's tradition'

Nah just like that jagoff Harry Reid is saying right now, "All or nothing". Tired of this wave of censorship at sporting events.

I saw this on HF.

It's not about the profanity.  Chanting "you suck" is just not the proper way to celebrate a goal.

This!

I actually think it's a good idea.  Other teams have random goal horns right in the middle of the song.  The Sharks being one team that does this.

So fanbases shouldn't sing-song the other team's goalie/star player either?  Cause that's basically the same thing - mocking someone else instead of cheering your own team (and at least with the goal song we cheer for the team first THEN start the mocking).  Ranger fans explaining why they're chanting Marty at MSG would seem just as odd in that context.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

So Tri 16,000 people "potentially" chanting "THIS IS OUR HOUSE" being potentially down 1-4 in a game = perfect solution?

Yea but the sing songing of goalies takes place once play resumes.  They still have a goal celebration the proper way.  If we waited until play resumes to chant "you suck" then I'd have zero problems with it.

It's still better than "you suck".  The phrase "this is our house" can still be used as a rallying chant.

And so can "HEY YOU SUCK" with 10x the enthusiasm.
