Because they are not one in the same thing, no matter how much you try to link them. That's why. Look, i see what you, Mr. Fantasy Football a few pages back and others are trying to do here and it's reaching. It's trying to play connect the dots with a broad brush. If you try hard enough you can do this is in a lot of walks of life, but it doesn't make it a valid argument.
As i said now for the 3rd time, it's all a finger pointing act at this point.
The goal song was changed because the ownership saw the practice of the crowd yelling "you suck" as morally questionable, and explicitly did it to create a more "family friendly atmosphere". Don't issues of drinking and gambling also lie on morally unstable ground? There's no trying to connect the dots; these things are inherently linked when morality is the underlying issue, which it was for the goal song. Nice use of evasive rhetoric, though.
I am not here fighting for the goal song, so stop attacking me like I came in here guns blazing. Sure, I liked the goal song, and was somewhat upset initially, but they didn't un-retire Dano's number, they didn't take down any banners, and those are the traditions we truly cherish. I personally don't like goal songs generally, nor the other bells and whistles that go along with a home team scoring. I'd like a goal horn and maybe some organ. But, that's not the point. I do not care one way or the other if they advertise for alcohol, or gambling, or for the adult film industry, or anything. It does not bother me one bit. However, if the ownership group decides to take this moral stand against inappropriate language, how can they continue to promote other morally questionable things like gambling and alcohol. This isn't an issue of legality, I understand that. For me, this is a question of integrity. To me, it is more than hypocritical to attempt to remove unsanctioned use of language in the crowd, while continuing to promote things like alcohol and gambling. Why is it OK for "families" to be exposed to these things, but not to the word "suck"?
