when a goalie gives up a softie against us, there is no better way to taunt him and get him nervous. I don't think we should do it for every goal, but the softies will play with his mind. also, if we are getting blow out of water and we get one, please shut your mouth, no one cares that we are now only losing by 4 goals.


Yeah but then you run into a debate during the game on which goal is a softy and you are also giving a lot of people in the arena too much credit to actually KNOW hockey.

I see quite a bit of over makeup-ed faces and over hair sprayed hair on trashy girls running around the arena that just yell out whatever anyone around them is saying to look like they know something. Yes the same girls that wouldn't recognize Marty Brodeur if he was running the checkout counter at Sephora.

Yes, save the "sucks" chant for after they announce the starters for the opposing team.

I say keep it, and keep on chanting it. We already lack enough crowd passion and energy during games. This just adds that extra raucous element that is sorely missing amongst most Devs fans that I see at games.

Seriously people?!?!?

First of all, am I reading this correctly? Some of you are for changing the goal song?!?! How quickly we forget how pissed off everyone was whey they took RR Pt 2 away... I worked for the team at the time and had to listen to hundreds of fans call and complain about Ole. I can't tell you how many times I heard lines like "I just can't enjoy Devils hockey without RR pt 2".... You all made my life miserable for months with those phone calls (maybe not YOU all, but fans in general)...Now the team gives you the song back and you're complaining because people are adding to it?!?! Get over yourself and just be happy they scored an effin goal! :argh:

I do, however, agree with general consensus on the Rangers suck chant... that is juvenile and really needs to go unless we're playing the Rags. I love that there are people willing to cheer/chant, but perhaps we change it to <team we're playing> sucks? (and if you have a problem with "sucks" in general... grow up! Kids are going to hear it somewhere else anyway. It's a hockey game, not a playground).

RR Part 2 should definitely remain the goal song. I think chanting "YOU SUCK" is pretty lame. Back at CAA this never occurred, and people just enjoyed yelling out the "HEY!" during the song.

well i'm going to counter-rant, although i am sorry that you had to listen to devils fans' complaints.

a goal is the galvanizing moment for the crowd - the time when fans can be happy and celebrate. but the devils' fans are not celebrating - they are pointing out the other team's failure. and do you know who does that? losers. losers do that. that's why loser franchises like nashville and the islanders do it, teams that haven't won a playoff round either ever or in 15 years. and if you got beat by nashville or the islanders on most nights, the fans were right, you do suck. but the devils aren't a loser franchise - a lot of their fans don't realize it, but they're not. there's no need to act like that. it comes from the same place as the rangers suck chant when the devils are down 4-1 against edmonton.

i don't like rooting for a loser franchise.

First of all, ...


I prefer in order:

1. Unaltered RR part 2
2. Another Song
3. Altered RR part 2 with "You suck"

I realize you are frustrated from your position in the company, but I don't think my position is that hard to understand, and I don't think I need to "get over myself." I think its classless for one, but what really annoys me is what Triumph states. Insulting someone is the trademark of the insecure. I don't enjoy rooting for a team that feels the need to insult the other team when celebrating (and especially the Rangers for no reason whatsoever). I think it's lame and frequently pathetic.

I reserve the right to tell people they suck, especially when they do. I agree with everyone who said don't break out the you suck when we're getting blown out of the water, but heckling is a part of sports, and lots of fans, secure or not, heckle. The people whining about Devils fans image or insecurity are the ones who are insecure, the rest of us are enjoying a time honored fan tradition. I'm not saying we shouldn't censor ourselves a little, or that everyone should chant you suck, but there's nothing wrong with yelling it.

Also, my favorite cheer is (insert name here) you suck. AND I HOPE YOU DIE!

I LOVE "YOU SUCK" AFTER GOALS! IT MUST NEVER CHANGE!

Seriously though, it's become part of the game experience for me. At least our fans are passionate enough to cheer stuff like this, the "Rangers suck!" chant, etc. unlike other places where the fans just sit there until a goal and then have a generic goal celebration.

by other places do you mean the rock? Cause the only chants we seem to do is the "You suck" after goals. Even the "rangers suck" chant seems to be dying down.

I personally don't use the "You Suck" when celebrating, but I'm certainly not going to let other people saying it ruin my enjoyment of the goal. Just like I hate smokers, but I'm not going to let the fact that someone smokes near me ruin my day. People are always going to do things that you don't agree with. In my opinion, letting it get to you is neither smart nor healthy. There's enough stress in life... how the guy next to you celebrates a goal should be at the bottom of the list of worries in today's world.
The team itself does not feel the need to insult the other team while celebrating. It's actually quite the opposite, for the most part the players have a very high respect for their opponent (with obvious exceptions when it comes to Brodeur/Avery). I don't understand why your seat neighbor saying "You Suck" after a goal should have any effect on your ability or willingness to root for the team.

My bad, I should have worded that better. I was referring to fans of some other teams that just sit there and clap, if they do anything. And, I don't think "rangers suck" is dying down, but that could just be me.
