I was at the game tonight...pretty good crowd, about 10 minutes before game time the place was empty..but it filled up. I was in section...220, which was right near the moron dressed in a cow suit and the 2 or 3 other fat drunk guys that insisted on doing the Rangers Suck/Flyers swallow chant literally at least every 10 minutes. I really felt embarrased, because I think it is so ridiculously stupid, and it happens EVERY game. The opposing team's fans must think we are retarded or something, and I wouldnt be surprised if our own players did too. I'm really sick of hearing that, I hate the Flyers and Rangers as much as anyone, but this is too much, save it for games AGAINST those 2 teams.

If only we could get people to cheer less...or enact a cheer police that told people how they could or could not cheer. :rolleyes:

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Ya.. I thought the chant was funny the first 50 times.. not a fan of it after the 53,700th time. Its a tad dumb. But whatever. If it makes noise.. then I guess its fine. I just choose not to participate. I would appreciate it more at the Ranger game, but eh. I just get more embarassed when someone talks about it like its some new awesome thing.

It's the same thing every game.
What can you do? :noclue:

My pet peeve is the playing of "Charge" on a defensive zone face off.

Well we do have the power players doing the D E V I L S chant. :doh1:

I know this will sound dumb.. but when the power players do the chant during the third.. i feel like they are stepping on baumans turf. I mean.. I know they work for Devs... but its his thing in the third lol.

Baumann hasn't been consistently there in years. And even when he was there, it was only when they were winning when he'd do his thing. Baumann is so 1995 :)

Let them do the chant, it works.

I dont go to every game...I def know I dont only go to wins.. but I almost always see him do his thing. Except the times he isnt there.
But ya... I know its old, and I know its not like his chant only, I just think they should do it at another time, so in case he wants to do it... he can still do it in the third.

He gets a better reaction then they do...except the other night when the kid shouted in the microphone. That was the first time I thought the crowd was louder for the power players.

the crowd gets SO LOUD when they put that noisemeter up...especially when they play sandman along with it...in all seriousness they should do that noisemeter between every faceoff, its the only thing that gets the crowd going

AND MORE SEPARATED AT BIRTHS!!!!!

IMO its so awkward and terrible when that guy does the d-e-v-i-l-s thing with the devils girls...everyone seems to hate it, its only good when the original guy does it.

its also funny how even the little kids say the rangers suck chant...was i the only one who wasnt allowed to say 'suck' at 10 years old?

Eh, at least it's some noise in the dump. I happen to agree with both of the things they say so I can't argue with them. I don't even mind them doing it every game. I just wish they'd replace it with "Let's Go Devils" about half the time they do it. My biggest problem with it is it's a complete ripoff of Potvin Sucks. I wish we, as fans, could come up with something orignal.

IMO the rangers rivalry isnt even the same anymore....I mean who's even left? Marty is the only Devil that really really wants to beat the rangers...steven is gone, nieder, daneyko...leetch is gone, messier, richter...it's not even as fun a rivalry anymore (although I do understand that playing across the river means its a guaranteed rivalry regardless) but my point is, its not nearly a big enough rivalry that we have to shout RANGERS SUCK! literally about every 10 minutes.

Well, considering that both teams are playing well as of late (since the lockout) and it appears that we may have some more post season battles with them over the next few years... I wouldn't be so quick to call it over.

I enjoy the Rangers chants, but chant in moderation. Two times a game (one in the second and one in the third) would be fine with me.

Isn't the D E V I L S chant just a mock J E T S JETS JETS JETS chant too? :P

i agree with this thread, the chant is weak...especially in a game with the panthers of all teams.

I have to agree that the chant got old a long time a go. Why when they play nashville do we need to hear that. It be better if we just insert the team that we are playing against or just don't do that chant at all with exception to the rangers games. I stopped chanting after the whistle thing and I suggest if you don't like it to just do the same!
