But, we're not talking about "you suck" by itself. We're talking about the "Flyers Swallow and Gomez watches" suffix of it. Or, any other kind of F-bomb involved when you have a person yelling it every other word sitting next to a 5 year old,.
That I agree should be montitored more. The chant that comes from the goal song is more or less "you suck" all by itself. I'm for rowdy behavior but I personally never liked the Flyers swallow, Crosby/Gomez watches chant. THAT'S lowbrow. Not "Hey You Suck".
We play Blurred Lines. A song which is pretty much about having your way forcibly with a woman.
We play You Gotta Fight...which has the porno line.
We play that Icona Pop song which has the lyric: "You're from the 70s but I'm a 90s bitch"
Those are all OK but "Hey You Suck" must be censored at all costs. I just... I don't even know where to begin. It's a major hypocricy if we are playing songs that are just as bad (harmless really) as the goal song.
I'm not surprised people don't like the song. I am surprised that our fans are this pissed off over it though. Like I said though, what about the people who didn't like R&R2? Do their opinions not count?
No but they are a very, VERY small percentage. That's the thing. We don't live in a "make everyone happy" world. It's majority rules.
Yelling "You Suck" after scoring a goal isn't offensive because "suck" is a bad word. It is offensive because it's not creative, not funny, low class and ends up being yelled regardless if we're winning or not.
From what I heard tonight it's like 10 people vs everyone else on this issue. Sooner or later the minority will lose out. Clear as day what the majority of fans thought of the change tonight and because they didn't buy into the change you're "embarassed". Get out of here. Have fun cheering along to something with zero beat.
Lose for Lindholm!
Quit winnin' for McKinnon!
Get owned for Jones!
Stay in a rut for Shinkaruk!
Losin' for Drouin!
Mail it in for Nichushkin!
Score like Zharkov for Barkov!
Someone on HF came up with those. Fantastic. I want McKinnon but that's a pipe dream. I'll stick with "Stay in a rut for Shrinkaruk". or "Score like Zharkov for Barkov" (since I can see Barkov being a slider)
