Again I do not want a library at the arena but what most people who claim to say that the arena is lacking "atmosphere" are a lot of times really saying they miss the drunken stupidity that has gone on at the arena lately since they moved. Not everyone wants that kind of atmosphere and to be honest, "atmosphere" is one of the last few reasons I even go to games. I go to games to watch the team I love, to meet certain people I have become friendly with there, to see the sights and just relax and enjoy it.
That's fair, and I understand what you're saying - I agree with you and others that having an arena filled with drunk buffoons making idiots of themselves shouldn't be the end goal. I think somewhere in the middle is the solution (obviously). To the bolded specifically, we'll have to agree to disagree. Which is no problem at all, obviously people go to the games for different reasons which is fine. It just bugs me when the needs and wants of one of the two parties (if we're going to have to break it into two groups) trumps those of the other.
And before people jump on me for that last part, I don't think removing 'you suck' is 'infringing' on any group in particular..I think that's an argument people should just let go. Do I miss the chant? Sure, but it's not going to stop me from going to games. I'm just worried it's the start of a larger trend to quiet down the crowd to create a more 'mature, business friendly' environment. Aka, MSG.
You're funny, but i guess not as funny as you saying Mike Brown has a mental disorder based on the nerds you shared dorm space with, right?
You're incapable of having a discussion without trying to get personal, huh? You're only helping prove my point about you that I brought up in that other thread.
For the record - IIRC, I never said he had a mental disorder. I implied he was socially awkward (like my engineering classmates at Rutgers, for sure). Someone else replied with a mental disorder. Look it up, verify it for me if you'd be so kind.
