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.

I definitely agree. It's stupid and idiotic. I'm glad I am not the only one who thinks this is imature.

good, for a minute I thought this thread was going to completely backfire...but only the first responder really seems to disagree, lol. Unless one of those morons that does it reads the thread, however, not much is going to be done. I think the arena should just play music as loud as possible as soon as they start to do it, even if its during play :)

I agree, I have often thought how classless we must seem to other teams fans, if it's not pointless Rangers, and Flyers chants, then it is yelling sucks everytime a player is introduced. I guess the chanters think it is cool.

As for the noise meter, I have been a t a few games where the attendance was say a bit shy of 8,000, and when the noise meters come on, they also pipe crowd noise through the PA system, which is also pathetic.

In my opinion we are not that classless. I'm sure other teams' fans say suck when players are introduced, and we have much more class than the Rangers and Flyers fans. We don't have ads that change and move around to distract the other team during shootouts like the Islanders do, we don't show the ref and his name on the jumboscreen so all the fans can boo him when he makes a bad call like the Canes fans do, and we don't all stand up and scream in unison every time one of our players falls on the ice like the Canes and Canadiens fans do. When you look at the other teams around the league, we are really not that classless.

I don't find anything wrong with yelling 'sucks' after an opponents name is introduced...hell, I wouldnt have even minded a few 'Panters Suck!" (although I wouldnt have joined it) chants....at least it is RELEVANT to the damn game at hand.

And if they really do pump in crowd noise to the noisemeter...i guess that explains a lot then, lol

Who cares what people chant? As long as they are makng noise really, a bunch of drunken morons yelling is better than an arena that's completely quiet or empty imo

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.


Baumann has been there every game this year so far. It's funny - everytime the Powerplayers do the D-E-V-I-L-S chant, the 228/229 crew gets him to do his, and it's always 10x louder when Baumann does it.

The whole thing is kind of ironic. I thought the Devils actually asked him to STOP doing that a few years back? :noclue:

its a bunch of drunken morons that get the rest of the crowd to do it....because the more we hate the rangers, the better devils fans we are, right? So of course we should voice our displeasure against the rangers at every opportunity


Why would they ask that guy to stop doing the Devils chant? I really hate that guy they put on the video screen.

I like the rangers suck chant, builds some rivalry and gets people into the game. Its tradition and I think its hillarious, even more so when its done against teams that arnt the rangers.

Heh, I have to agree a bit with squishyx.

Only going to maybe 3 or 4 regular season games a year, being able to yell out 'Rangers Suck' once or twice is a fun novelty. I can feel for the season ticket holders though, it probably does get annoying every 10 minuets for 41 games.

But what are the alternatives? Yelling out team xxx sucks? Nothing? Making CAA (or possibly Newark) quieter? If there's a lull in the game I'm all for *something* to wake the crowd up. Charge in the defensive zone just can't pump me up.

Having a crowd initiated chant does bring a bit of intimacy into the building I think.

Two points, in light of the fact I just posted a new topic involving a "Rangers Suck" chant.

1. Don't like the chant? Don't chant along with it. It's stunning to think that anything a Devils crowd does that rises above waiting for something to happen on the ice to make noise can be bashed. Is it vulgar? Yes. Is it crude? Yes. Would it be better to forget about the Rangers and cheer for our own team? Sure, but that'll only happen when the Rangers are contracted. The bottom line is that they fit within the rebellious spirit of the franchise: just like we used "Devils hockey" to win three Cups before they were forced to change the rules to conteract it, we stole the most identified cheer from an Original Six team and made it our own -- at their expense.

2. Mad props to the poster who stated the "no whistle, no chant" rule. Let's get Triple H and Burt Reynolds to make that a Man Law.

I like the Rangers suck chant. I go to a decent amount of games (10-15 a year) and it never grows old for me. The main reason that I do it is this...

Ranger fans are ALWAYS at Devils games. Even when we're not playing them. They come with their jersey's, they get drunk, obnoxious, and root for any team but the Devils (first Flyers game we had, a Ranger fan in our section was cheering for the Flyers. The Flyer fans around kept telling him that it was embarassing he was rooting for them). Sometimes they'll come without any colors and make smart ass remarks under their breath. I chant it because I want THEM to be reminded.

Also, people who don't come to games often and hear it, think it's hysterical. They have to practice before they come to a Devils/Rangers game, no? :)

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


That's because it's fake cheering...if you want artificial cheering throughout the game, then sure, but otherwise it's merely pumped in.

Well, at least one person in this thread seems to get the distinction.

Saying "Rangers Suck" is common parlance for "Rangers Stink". If some of us take that as a veiled blow job reference, so be it. I don't have to explain it to my kid. But once you add the "Flyers Swallow", well, you're no longer being clever. It's a crude reference that my kid shouldn't have to learn at four or five years old -- and rest assured, he'll ask.
