Speaking about last season, I think those things kind of come with the territory when you have more people attending games.  The more people are there, the more idiots are there.  I was once at a Wild game in Minnesota a few years ago and was surprised to hear not even once some dumbass yelling, "Shoot!" or anything like that.  Unfortunately we get that stuff around here because this area does not have the kind of hockey culture Minnesota has.  I'd say a very small percentage of hockey fans around here have actually played organized hockey.

Hey just my two cents, last few years there has been a steady trend of idiocy increasing in the stands.
 
EDIT: Of course there are tons of knowledable fans and season ticket holders, didnt mean to throw the entire fanbase under the bus, but it has been getting worse and worse every year. Some of these people do not even respect the sport.

like the idiots i mentioned going on and on probably drunk in the bathroom about kovy... its a pure lack of knowledge its amazing how incredibly dumb some people honestly are yet they really think they know what theyre talking about.

There are people who yell Shoot everywhere.  I hear Canadian hockey fans complain about it.

I heard someone yell "get it out of there" during a devils game the other day...he yelled it when the other team dumped the puck into our zone so they could do a line change.

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.

About two years ago I was sitting in one of the upper corners and there was this woman in the very last row with a thick spanish accent who kept yelling "Shooooottt!!!" really loud the entire game.  Hell she was doing it when our defenseman had the puck behind our own goal waiting for the line change to complete.  Eventually another woman in our section yelled at her to STFU about 10 min left in the game and it was silent for the rest of the game.

Exactly...it's a friggen hockey game, with all types of people ...it's called atmosphere 

A lot of people say the Rock is dead during games...we need some loud mouth people to get things going, I dont care if people yell "shoot" or whatever (as long as they dont do the wave)

I don't care who goes to games and people are free to cheer or yell what they want, unless of course it crosses a line. The you suck chant has apparently crossed the line and is not wanted by a portion of the fan base, the organization, and probably the nhl and msg/nbc.

People who want to keep it need to respect that and move on.

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.

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.
