We need these community building traditions, even if some are offended. Im surprised an organization so heavily founded on tradition constantly is trying to get rid of a goal song thats been around since Colorado.

We play Blurred Lines. A song which is pretty much about having your way forcibly with a woman.

We play You Gotta Fight...which has the porno line.

We play that Icona Pop song which has the lyric: "You're from the 70s but I'm a 90s bitch"

 

Those are all OK but "Hey You Suck" must be censored at all costs. I just... I don't even know where to begin. It's a major hypocricy if we are playing songs that are just as bad (harmless really) as the goal song.

Again, it has nothing to do with profanity or obscenity.

I think at this point, if you need to ask, you'll never know.

Oh so it has to do with being down a few goals right? Ok so as said NUMEROUS TIMES chanting "This Is Our House" being down 4-2 provides the same result with an annoyed crowd.

 

Or does it have to do with the fact that a select few are "embarrassed". Well sorry yelling at hockey games is embarrassing to you.

It's embarrassing the same way that a John Sterling canned homerun call is embarrassing. Both the you suck chanters and Sterling are trying to be clever, when in actuality they're just being infantile and insecure.

It's just as stupid as dumb Ranger fans with the Potvin sucks chant. Basically Ranger fans are willingly reliving a time when the Isles were eating their lunch, just so they can think everyone else in the world thinks they're clever and have "traditions".

That Devils fans mimic it with random Ranger suck Flyers swallow chants is even worse. The Rangers suck so much, that some Devils fans try to copy everything their idiotic fans do.

Don't get me wrong there is always a time and a place for trying to get under the visiting team's skin and mocking them. It has absolutely no effect though when it's done just as a matter of course.

More infantile and insecure than worrying about what other people chant? If you don't like it, don't chant it. I don't chant any of that stuff because I don't like it. But i don't see the point in being a fun Nazi to people enjoying themselves. It's a hockey game, not the 3 Tenors.

Hey, I'm not the one resorting to booing my own team after scoring a goal because I don't get to say my little chant that annoyed half the arena to begin with.

Annoyed half the arena? How? Most of the arena chanted it every game, and a lot of them booed the Bon Jovi song. Just because you or I don't like it doesn't make it unpopular.

Yeah I think if last night proved anything, it proved the goal song didn't tick off anywhere NEAR half the arena, and the one last night pretty much ticked off 95% of it.

Yes, I am. I will talk to the CEO in the next meeting we have if it's not resolved by then.

 

I think a song like Hells Bells would be perfect.  Make sure you mention this.

 

We play Blurred Lines. A song which is pretty much about having your way forcibly with a woman.

We play You Gotta Fight...which has the porno line.

We play that Icona Pop song which has the lyric: "You're from the 70s but I'm a 90s bitch"

It has nothing to do with the profanity or offensiveness.

 

Oh so it has to do with being down a few goals right? Ok so as said NUMEROUS TIMES chanting "This Is Our House" being down 4-2 provides the same result with an annoyed crowd.

For the love of god dude!  We've been through this already!  "This is our house" is a perfect rallying cry or chant or song.  What do you not understand about this?!

No, it doesn't. So tired of people wanting "class" and censorship at games.

 

 

saw this suggested on Facebook... would be funny for a chuckle if we used it

Only good thing about the new song is that it's the perfect rhythm to be made fun of. "This song sucks (insert expletive of choice here, I personally prefer ass)." If it hasn't changed by the next home game I am absolutely gonna have fun with this abomination.

Is it that you hate it as a goal song?  Or do you just hate the song in general?

I have some questions.

 

1. Is there any kind of compromise we can agree to?  How about we play Rock and Roll 2 for every goal that puts us in the lead?  That way it doesn't look bad when we chant "you suck".

 

2. If you don't like number 1.  Does the chant HAVE to be "you suck"?  There has to be a better chant we can do that gives positive reinforcement to the Devils.

 

3. Would you guys be ok if the players picked their own goal song?

 

There has to be some way to make at least 95% of the fanbase happy.  We're all Devils fans here.  We'll clash at times, but we all want what's best for the organization.  We all love this team.  Chances are I've already interacted with some of you, and I've never had one bad experience at the Rock.  And I've been to around 20-25 games since the place opened.  This is a great fanbase that's still growing.  I don't like this divide that's being created over a goal song.

Hey, the "you suck" chant is all on the shoulders of the opposing team.   Shut out NJ and you won't have to hear it.    Blame the prolific NJ offense for making this an issue.    :boogie:
