I am so sick of everything with our fans "sucking" and you suck, Parise sucks, everyone sucks. I just hate it. It's embarrassing sometimes. I blame the fans and I blame the organization.
Yes. Hearing the words "you suck" towards opposing players and teams is just so emabarssing let me tell you. God forbid we jeer opposition. Hell having to debate having to say "Hey You Suck" in this day in age is laughable. 2014 and this fan base makes "you suck" like it's the most vile word in the dictionary. The season is almost over. Can we admit to everyone who wanted this silly "family friendly" atmosphere that it's a total fvcking bomb? We were a sh!tty team in 2011 and 2013 and the building was still electric. SNA would be FANTASTIC but Weber and co have made every effort to make it the dulliest, lamest chant in the NHL. If you can even call it a chant. The canned "LGD" that no one chants - basically telling people what to say it akin to the old "WE ROCK!" nonsense that used to show up on the screen. Last night was sort of loud. (As loud as you are going to get with 14,000 in the barn) that's because we didn't have that canned "LDG" chant in there. We wouldnt have to change anything if they would just get rid of the canned crap. SNA is actually pretty catchy.
We have to be the most crotchity fan base ever - debating the use of saying "you suck" in sports. Saying something which is pretty common-place as a saying in this day and age, and which is used as a saying as a synonom for "You stink" and nothing else. Again - god forbid we say the opposing team and their players are awful. Why not just break out participation medals after each game so we don't make them feel bad. Last night's game could have REALLY used the YS chant.
A lot of fans I see need to relax and enjoy the game, cheer and have fun. This is hockey. This is a sporting event. Not Church nor a PTA meeting. And my goodness there have been times this season where I could have actually confuse the two. Could we be any more of a group of fuddy-duddies.
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)
