I guess if the rangers are ever ahead of us in the standings we can't do the whistle and rangers suck chant huh? Here's a thought, how about the embarrassed few just stop taking you suck so literally.

There has to be some way to make at least 95% of the fanbase happy. 

 

I hate to break it to you, but based on the response at opening night, I'd say about 95% of the fanbase has already made their decision. I think you're underestimating just how far in the minority you are on this one.

I thought that was mainly because the new song was terrible. 

 

And how bout instead of you guys telling us what we should take when we're embarrassed, you get *slightly* creative if you wanna yell stuff? You're basically at the level of discourse of 6 year olds. I don't mind if it's nasty or uses bad words or anything, just please make it interesting or creative.

I can't believe there are 27 pages to this thread.


..seriously. It's over.. put it to bed.
To carryon like this is like a child taking a temper-tantrum when they can't take no for an answer. You're going to boo after your team just scored a goal because you're angry about not being able to chant; "you suck!" ..and you call yourself a fan?! --let alone an adult?

The Devils can play Nights in White Satin after they score for all I care.. just so long as they score. --and if your excitement ceases 8 seconds after because a song comes on that doesn't tickle your fancy.. to the point where you actually boo, you really should blush as a "fan"

Daniel you're way off on this one. You're over analyzing this, comically so. Stop taking this so seriously, it's a goal chant. You don't go to sports games to prove how mature you can be.

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

 

 

It has nothing to do with the profanity or offensiveness.

 

 

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?!

 

 

It's the same principle as the old horn only without "sucks" in it. How do you not understand that?

 

"Hey You Suck" sounds silly being down 4-1. "This Is Our House" sounds just as silly being down 4-1 because the score is still the same. The main difference is 95% of the fanbase have a preference towards one horn.

 

Go through this thread and you'll see that you and perhaps...one or two other people actually like the new horn but everyone else thinks it's horrible. So what? The Devils should make YOU happy because you don't like it?

 

Also. Chanting "Sucks" during pre-game intros = OK. After goals? Not OK?

 

Wanna take away the intros as well MB?

Yup. Beezer gets it. The booing killed any excitement I and many other fans had. I don't think the majority of people booed either. What's louder: 13,000 fans not making noise or 4,000 screaming and booing?

I resent someone challenging my calling myself a fan or an adult. No one was booing the team, they were booing the song. period. It's about tradition, and whatever the reasons were for changing it, it's still breaking tradition, breaking something this team stands for.

 

I'm sure lots of the Boos were actually Bruuuuuner chants.

"Hey you suck" sounds silly when the Devils score a goal, give their fans something to celebrate and the attention is on the opposition's failures. The 20-something children (let's face it....this group are the ones chanting it and defending it the most) and the other man-children are casting the attention on the other team. Your team scores and you are more passionate that you can/can't chant a elementary school level insult at the other team! Not only does it not end there, but then act like complete fools on social media trying to defend this behavior like it's even remotely unique or creative. 

 

"This is our house", even as lame as it is (and i dislike Bon Jovi, never saw the "sexiness" or appeal in JBJ) at least tries to keep the attention on the Devils (or tries to) up 4-1 or down 4-1. 

 

Want to chant "you suck" during intros? That's the time to do so. If you don't understand the difference between doing that and taking the attention off the Devils after they score a goal....then you will never get it like so many others don't in your age group. How about this? During intros after you cheer a Devils player's name becuase you support them....chant "you suck" right after. Hey, you're all doing it after they scorewhen you're supporting them why not cover all the bases?  :rolleyes:

all of you are seriously fvcking ridiculous.  just reading all this existensial BULLSH1T about a fvcking goal song not being "classy" or "celebrating the other teams failures" you all sound like a goddamn college-level philosophy class.  

 

ITS A FVCKING CHANT to celebrate a goal I DONT THINK ANYONE ELSE THINKS "HEY the devils just scored, this chant TOTALLY means that we are taking the attention off the devils"  :blahblah:  give me a fvcking break.  Youre taking this sh!t waaaaaay to literally.  Its a goddamn hockey game.

 

changing the song back to RRp2 was one of the few things the devils have done right to the fans in these past few seasons, and if 2 little words after HEY really piss you off that much then dont go.  you look like a fvcking idiot if you're actually debating the semantecs of this to THAT extent.  Casting the attention on the other team MY ASS.  We are celebrating like Jerseyans its the most JERSEY chant ever. We are Jersey right?

 

As for the people saying that the Devils shouldnt have to cater to us......... uhhh, yeah, the fvcking should, they aren't paying me are they? we pay them. so yeah they should do what the fans want. morons.

If the "you suck" chant is the most Jersey chant ever, than it's a shame we didn't invent it and I am also saddened that apparently the stereotypes of Jersey trash are actually true, and I've always defended otherwise. 

 

For you and the others saying not to analyze the semantics and we are taking things too literally, why don't we examine our franchise for a second. 

 

This is a team where players need to be cleanly shaven until the playoffs at all times. This is a team that doesn't allow its players on social media outlets. This is a team that chooses not to ever change the uniform or add a third jersey. This is a team that rarely allows players to choose a number higher than the goalie, etc. 

 

Do any of these things really matter? Would the outcome of our games change  if there were different rules being enforced for our players? We don't know, obviously. What we do know is that the people who run this organization have put all of these rules in place, and have also given us a winning team to root for for the last 20 years or so. It is also considered one of the classiest and strictest teams to play for.  This starts with front office, the demeanor, and the intangibles that so many of you have never complained about. These same people have decided that "You Suck" is not something they want being chanted at the games. Say whatever you want about the people who realize the chant is immature and out of place, but we are on the same page as Lou and his colleagues, and if I have to choose between what a bunch of drunk, young fans want, and what they want, I'm going with them. 

 

And by the way, I'm one of the drunkest and loudest fans in that building, but it doesn't mean I ever boo my team, or the front offices choices, or scream You Suck while we should be celebrating our goal. I scream for my team, I lose my voice for them, I encourage fans around me to do the same. Not everyone fits your stereotype of the type of fans who aren't chanting You Suck. Booing after the goals on Friday was disgraceful and I can't believe how many of you are defending that. I don't care if you were booing the arena, the music, the front office, the new owners, the guy who plays the music, whatever. You were booing after the New Jersey Devils scored their first goals of the season. Come at me with another excuse, but one day you will realize how embarrassing this was. It makes me incredibly sad to watch the re-runs of our Cup runs, and to hear the crowd in the CAA, and to think back to a much classier time to be a Devils fan, when we were all seemingly on the same page. Win games and be happy, Let's Go Devils.

You and the ranter above prove my point about the 20-something culprits in this fanbase. Can't have it your way so you go and cry, rant, insult, make fools out of yourselves on social media and by booing when your team scores a goal. And (my favorite) point fingers at others because you can't bring yourselves to understand anything that differs 180 degrees from your point of view.

classy" types are quick to name call; their usually the first ones to rag on our own players.

 

i remember caa guys reading newspapers; partly why 2012 was sooo sooo great, the energy

 

imo this is on scott oniell whos hasnt seen a winning team in his whole career. i was going to give him the benefit of the doubt until this happend on the home opener.  this is just the first step in the wrong direction, it will get worse. 

 

edit:(drunk trash redneck children culprits) classy ; yelling you suck = drunk, right ok.

 

reedit: for the record i dont care about you suck i care about the energy and bon jovi is not that, if you want a comprise get rid of bon jovi.

There was definitely more than 2 or 3 thousand people not involved in the booing on Friday. That's more than 5%.

You clearly don't understand the concept of a rally cry. "This is our house" can be equivalent to saying "we don't give up". How does "you suck" equate to that.

"You suck" is a negative chant directed at the opposition.
"This is our house" is a positive reinforcement chant.

Have you ever watched the movie Mystery Alaska? Remember when Russell Crow's character was in the locker room during the 2nd intermission when they were down 5-2? He was referring to "their pond".

Agreed. They care way too much about the goal song. I know that people who hated the goal song even thought it was despicable that they booed that loudly. I just can't fathom why certain people care more about the song than the team itself. I also can't fathom why anything that shows positive reinforcement to the team is criticized.

Last I checked. You were supposed to boo and be "negative" to the opposition as much as possible. Not cheer the opposing team on. That's so lame. "OK guys while you aren't my favorite team, might nice effort out there".

 

That's gross.

 

Wanna change the goal song? Hell by Foo Fighters. I could see that working.
