people just need to move on in general.. the topic cant be discussed any further. if you want to chant it when your there go ahead and chant it there will be others doing the same its not going away that easily.. dont want to chant dont chant its that simple.. no need to keep making this more then what it is

it is ridiculous how much it has been dragged out, but my point was that there are fellow FANS respectfully asking others to stop the chant. It's not just some rich guy who bought the team and made it priority 1 to stop it.

Chant something positive instead, I don't care but there is clearly a portion of fellow FANS who feel the chants have crossed the line.

I stepped back from this thread for a few days, because I don't like to come on this forum solely to bicker, but at this point I honestly just don't care anymore.  People (myself included) are so entrenched in their own sides that nothing much is being accomplished by discussing it (*cough* politics *cough*).  The reality is, the song's not coming back, and people will cheer what they want to regardless of what people think of it.

 

From this point forward, I just hope the song isn't embarrassing. That's my only request.  Don't pick some stupid sing-song bullsh!t like the one the other night.  Seven Nation Army was fine and looks great in comparison to the other selections (intentional?).

Let's say you are coaching a game in front of your own friends and family in your own town or city. How would you feel if your team scored a goal, and all your friends and family did afterwards was mock the opposing team instead of showing support for you and your team?

Fans should be celebrating and showing support for their team following a goal instead of mocking the opposition. It makes it seem like we are focused on the opposition screwing up.

Class isn't the issue.

we're hockey fans, why do we need to "have class"? Why don't we all come to the game in suits, eat our food in the stands with forks and knives and just give golf claps when our team scores? As long as violence doesn't break out, it's just people letting loose and having some harmless fun at the games. Don't want to join in, no one's asking you to. We aren't "bad" or "idiot" fans for doing it though. We don't have to like or respect the opposition.

 

I'm not trying to pick a fight here, and I understand what you're saying, but this is a pretty dangerous statement. Believing that you have the right to say anything you want (which, constitutionally, you do I suppose) as long as it doesn't resort to violence is immature and irresponsible. I love the rivalries in sports but obviously there is a line that we don't want to cross as fans. Consider the guy that threw a banana at Simmonds...not violent, but obviously out of line. We live in a world now that is very sensitive to racial slurs and things that marginalize religions, sexual orientations, etc. and for good reason. Of course people take the PC thing too far, but we have to remember that we're in a public place at the Rock, and there are families around. They're going to hear all kinds of stuff, and that's fine, but it doesn't mean that we need to call Claude Giroux a jerk 100x at the top of our lungs either.

 

I'm all for relaxing and having fun as you mentioned, but try to remember that we're all civilized people not barbarians. Just because we could act a certain way, doesn't mean we should. We've all been around the drunk guy screaming profanity for 3 hours, and it's obnoxious. If he would focus on cheering for his team, and not against the opponent, he would be more tolerable. And lest you think I'm the PC police, trust me, I've been the drunk idiot before too and it's embarrassing once you sober up. Perhaps I've just learned from some "youthful indiscretion", haha.

The Devils players likely don't give a sh!t what the fans chant after a goal is scored.  This isn't about them.  It's about the portion of the fanbase that complained and wanted the song changed due to the chant, and the others that didn't want the change and/or will continue the "you suck" chant regardless of what song is picked.  

 

It's clear that management has made up their mind and is not going to bend to the will of the large majority of this fanbase.  That's fine.  But, in reality, I don't personally think much will change (except for the song itself) because the "you suck" chant isn't going away with SNA.  Thankfully, this will all be over soon.

Yes, and we can move on to more important issues like...why is the beer warm, and why is the food so blah

Except it really was just about 1 rich guy trying to make it stop. Only a very small percentage of the fan base appeared to actively detest the chant to the point of wanting the goal song changed. I never heard a devils fan, before the new owner came in, say that he/she wished rnr2 would be removed (aside from the pedo crap). Our society is so full of debate debate debate that everything just has to have two equal amounts of proponents to an issue. So it appears that the anti you suck ppl are in greater numbers than they actually are.

When it comes to beer, is there really a more important issue?

I want to put this here because I don't know where else to put it.  I really liked against Tampa how there was a chant for Jagr, Henrique and Marty.  I definitely think that is a tradition to keep going, for anybody who scores for the Devils, not just our favorites, and of course, when the goalie makes a nice save. 

 

I think we have been doing this for the fan favorites, but I would like to see it expanded to all players.

That's not the point.  When you go to the Rock, you're there to cheer for the Devils.  Whether or not the players care is irrelevant.  The point is, it doesn't look good when we're more focused on the opposition than we are our own team.

And your point?

you are a pot calling the kettle black

here are two quotes (by you) which side are you on?

 

"Fans should be celebrating and showing support for their team following a goal instead of mocking the opposition"

 

"I do have a confession to make.  I was actually partaking in the YS chant tonight simply because it was the Rags"

Well I can tell you it's not that I don't like the chant.  I just don't like it after we score a goal.  And the one time I did do it, it was after our fourth goal against the Rags.
