Unfair comparison dude, I've been to enough games at Madison Square Garden to know Rangers games are so tame, relatively speaking. It's not an overgeneralization that 60+% of the people in the building don't even have a Rangers jersey or paraphernalia on, it's the flat-out truth. It's a corporate/client-meeting venue and that's it. Many nights, the loudest the crowd gets is when it's booing its power play.


That plus the last couple of times I went to the Garden there were more than enough lewd chants and comments about Marty in the crowd (this was in the Avery days). They're about as preoccupied with 'fatso' as we are with them.

Did 1/2 of the arena or more chant it at the same time?  Was it during a game where they weren't playing the Devils?

I think if there was a huge issue with it, Lou would've done something about it by now. There has to be a reason why they switched back to it after it was gone for a few games (or a whole season)

The only problem I have with the Hey You Suck! thing is pretty much the same most have with it. Being down 5-2 and still chanting it after we score that second goal. Otherwise it's harmless. I have more of an issue with "Flyers swallow" then "Hey you suck."

 

Also that Bon Jovi song sounds more of a hype song then a goal song. A bit slow-paced actually IMO.

Well I think that's what's happening. The thread was started because it seems like they'll be replacing the goal song this year, per several reports.

I don't like the 'you suck' chants. I don't join in on them. As Tri and DevsMan said, they come off like drunken college stuff, and it's just not my kind of thing. I too cringe when I hear it after we turn a 4-0 score to a 4-1 score, and I'm not a fan of the 'Rangers suck/Flyers Swallow' chant either. Again, not my thing. I'm there for the game.

 

But I think it's ridiculous to say the rest of the crowd can't chant what they want because of how it looks to other fans. Honestly, who gives a crap what fans of other teams think? Half the damn league thinks there are 1,500 of us napping in an empty arena while our team plays the trap all night. Even after how loud our arena was in 95 (chanting Bettman sucks), or leading the league in scoring in 2001, or shaking the CAA so bad in 2003 that the cameras on the second level were useless, or packing the house for the 2012 run when on paper we had no business outside of the first round, we still have the same empty arena/boring team stigma. I'm not interested in what other teams think of us. They will always believe what they want to, and in reality, the other 29 teams care as little about what happens in our arena as we care what happens in theirs.

 

For example, none of us cares that Nashville does a 'you suck' chant. We didn't care when the Isles did it. And we surely don't think that Chicago and Detroit, who often chant that each other sucks no matter who they are playing, have inferiority complexes. I think it's a far deeper inferiority complex to worry what the hell some dunce in a Flyers jersey who somehow drunkenly made it up the turnpike thinks of what our fans chant. At the end of the day, it's a sporting event, and being a fan doesn't mean you have to be logical. People are there for the "us vs them" of it all. Even with the chants, I'd rather have RR pt 2 than some generic song like Zombie Nation. I'll just cheer and yell the 'hey' part like always.

i already said this and this is the biggest problem. if "you suck" was used properly, I would be totally fine with it. a late goal to go ahead or pull away - against nyr, pit, philly - good. but we can't get on the same page so it should go

I remember the first time that I heard the Chelsea Dagger (I think it was in a beer commercial or something), I thought, "That would be a great song at a sporting event." I did not specifically think Devils Goal Song because R&Rpt2 was so entrenched for that purpose. Sadly, I feel that if we went with it now, we would look like we're simply trying to copy the Cup Champs.

Dont worry, the cup champs stole it from Celtic FC, who used it as their goal song years before the Hawks did.

The fans (many of them) seem to have a blast doing the You Suck chant, and yeah I'm sure many of them have a few beers in them too. Other team's fans say some stupid crap too.

Its just not for everyone. I'm sure the fans will find a new chant with the new song...it could be worse then You Suck.......we'll have to see.

What if we all said..... "We Rule"   or something Positive?????

 

 

yeah..this is getting beaten to death now

I love the "You Suck" chant. It helps me relieve all the stress and energy in my body leading up to the moment that goal is scored. I'm like an addict getting my fix. The "Hey" is all excitement for my team and the "You suck!" is purely directed at the other team for making me feel this way. It's euphoric in the best possible way. That being said, I never do it if the Devils are getting blown out. That emotion just isn't there. I wish other people would do the same but meh, I'd rather have it all the time than never have it at all.

You know you're overanalyzing a sports chant when the words "inferiority complex" start popping up. At that point, even Freud would probably say, "Jeez, it's just a sporting event. Not everything has some deep, underlying meaning. Lighten up."

I would probably be an outlier on the board with my music taste, so I don't really have a suggestion. I am, however, in favor of getting something a bit more modern playing though.

Agree, a lot of reading going into this. 

 

From what I remember, it was always "Hey!" and only "Hey!" for the longest time, then around the 2002-03 season, "you suck" became a part of it, and slowly but surely became more widespread where it can clearly be heard throughout.  I don't think there's any deeper meaning, just one of those things that just sort of happened over time.  I don't think most fans are experiencing deep thought moments as they're saying it.  I don't say it only because it never really felt right to me. 

 

IF the Devils are indeed canning R&R Part 2, I'd like to know why exactly.  Just because they think it's dated and has run its course?  Are some of the suits and higher-ups only somehow NOW becoming aware of the "you suck" thing?  Were some fans (maybe some parents) actually starting to call and/or write complaining about it?  Guess I'd just like to hear it from the franchise itself.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I seem to recall hearing that "you suck" has been a concern from management for a while now.  Maybe the new CEO wants to put his foot down.

I didn't even think of new ownership...could very well be the reason.
