Again for the 1000th time, it has nothing to do with you suck being a dirty word. I don't think anyone here who is against it think that you suck is dirty one bit.

Actually it is about "you suck" being a dirty word. The new owners want it to be a more family friendly environment. ONE person complained about "you suck" and that's why they need to get rid of it. The ushers were told to stop the fans from saying the word "SUCK".

Which I personally think is REDICULOUS.

Not buying this, unless the one person complaining is one of the new owners or buys three rows of club seats or something.  I certainly agree that the new owners could want to change the song for that reason, but I doubt it's on the back of one complaint.

Are there any sources or quotes where the owners have said, "We want to change the culture so that it is more family friendly". 

 

Suck isn't a bad word, no one cares about saying sucks.  That's not the point.

They can't possibly have changed it because of 'one' person.  If that's the case it's coming back real fast now that 17,000 voiced their disapproval at the game the other night.

source is my boss who runs operations. They consider "suck" to be a bad word and of phallic imagery. I was told guests cannot use inappropriate language and that includes talking about "body parts" like "this guy (mouths the word) sucks". Yeah, they can get pretty PG and PC sometimes. And all it takes is one complaint about ANYTHING for them to put consideration into changing something, specially if it doesn't cost money.

So why aren't our complaints about it being taken away taken with the same weight?

I have no reason not to believe this story, but I sure hope it isn't true.  If 1 complaining fan is all it takes to change long standing policy/tradition (I'm talking about the song and not the "you suck" chant) that affects the game day entertainment of 17,000 people, then we are going to play in a completely silent building. 

 

Almost every song played at the Rock is objectionable to someone, for some reason .  I am also personally offended by "PSE&G" sponsoring our power play since it promotes the use of fossil fuels rather than clean, renewable energy.  Think I will try to get that changed as well.  While I'm at it, maybe its time for NJ to go as well.  He clearly promotes satanic worship and is meant to target young and impressionable fans.  Can't have that now can we.

Well to be fair we haven't had a game since, so know one knows if our complaints are being taken. But probably because they still consider "sucks" as a bad word. So it won't win.

You might be talking about the song and not the chant, but the chant and the song are now married. So whether we're talking about the song or the chant is irrelevant since you cant get rid of the chant without getting rid of the song.

True story: Some preacher was performing (forgot who) and there was an hour delay to him coming on stage. Reason was because of all the Devils logos. He wanted them taken down. I'm not even kidding. He finally came on though.

 

This reminds me of concerts sometimes. Guy is standing up. Guy sitting behind him complains saying the standing fan is ruining his fun. Then guy standing says him having to sit will ruin his fun. Both are technically right with their complaints. But sitting guy wins because it's the easiest solution (standing guy sits down and isn't having fun, but he still sees the show, guy sitting down doesn't have to be moved to be behind someone who isn't standing)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA @ a preacher complaining about the logos. WELCOME TO HELL!!

Seriously though, is he that clueless that he had no idea the NJ Devils were the primary tenant of the building?

And can this thread just be closed? I waited all offseason for threads that weren't about nothing, then this is the only thread getting action after the season starts. Damn.

RR pt 2 is clearly the best goal song choice due to tradition and it's a point in the game where the crowd gets reliably loud. Though someone suggested the "Hey! Hey! Hey!" section of Ain't Talkin' Bout Love. That was the only suggestion I liked, at all. It got energy, it's a rock song, it's got "Hey" in it.

The chant, while not offensive, is pretty lame, especially when we're getting crushed.

And JBJ sucks a fat one. Whoever chose a song by him should be fired, immediately.

I really hope they pick another song. I'm gonna flip out if this ends up being a story all year.

I do think NJ should have more than 1 mask though.  The one he has now he will wear when the team is winning.  Another one for when the team is losing and it is him with a pissed off look.  It does sometimes bug me when the Devils are down 5-1 and he has that stupid smirk on his face.

But not too pissed off looking. Wouldn't want to frighten the children.

I love the analogy of some fans standing for a concert and some sitting. Our anti you suck fans are the sitting fans yelling the standing fans that they have to sit as well because they are blocking the view of those that are sitting.

It can't be because of one email, or the new owners, for that matter. Last year they started putting "You Rock!" on the video board during the goal song to stop people from saying "you suck"..

HAHA!!!  That's a great idea.  Time to demand the change.

Now that's thinking like an executive...you should work for the Devils.  If they could monetize you taking a dump in the bathroom at the Rock, they would.

I was told the song was changed because of Gary Glitter. Where did you hear about this one email thing?

One week in and we're not talking hockey, we're arguing about a frigging song.

Some of us at the concert came to see the band and not the guy yelling freebird who thinks he is funny.
