So when we all launch out of our seats and jump up and down while the goal horns blasting, high five our friends, neighbors, give out hugs, dance in the stands, etc... that's not celebrating?
Well it is. My point is, no other fanbase uses the goal song as an opportunity to jeer the other team. We shouldn't either.
I just don't get the argument that you and...say 1-2 thousand at most. Maybe less. Maybe a bit more. Should topple over that massive majority. Chanting "THIS IS OUR HOUSE" after we are getting blown out is JUST AS SILLY as chanting HEY YOU SUCK. If you want to use that argument.
If you are going to change the song. Change it to something the fans actually will like because whether you want the song changed or not HARDLY ANYONE liked Bon Jovi last night. Plus he's a Rangers fan.
The guy doing our new goal horn is a Rangers fan! Get the hell out of here. Use a Bruce track if you are going to be full on cheesy Jersey.
Do you know what the term "rallying cry" or "rallying chant" means? They are terms in reference to cheers or actions fans and players do in order to make a comeback. You've heard of "rally caps" or the "rally monkey" in Anaheim, right? Well when a team is behind, players and fans resort to "rally"ing as a means to get their team back into the game in which they are losing.
"This is our house" can actually be used in that manner. "You suck" cannot in any way be used in that manner.
And what's worse? Celebrating to a song written by a Rags fan, or celebrating to a song written by a pedophile?
