Excellent post. Jagr, in less than two seasons, already is one of my all time favorite Devils.

Most of the people I bring are 22-28 - and they all think "what's with the white trash chants?" that's pretty much what we collectively look like. 

 

Sounds like you bring some real winners to the games. Maybe you shouldnt care so much about how naive and ignorant your friends are at a hockey game.


Truthfully, the thing I find funniest about this issue is how polarizing it is.

Also, if you are worried that your friends judge you in some way based on things that other people whom you don't even know are chanting, you might want to consider getting some better friends. If you didn't do it, what difference does it make to you what your friends think?

This is actually a fair post and I appreciate that.  Thank you.

 

I disagree about the rowdy element part.  I mean there were plenty of rowdiness back at CAA, but not to the level you see at the Prudential Center.  I am not saying its to the level of Philly, but I hear plenty about people wanting to "protect home ice" and make visitors "uncomfortable."  I mean really?  Are we trying aspire to be Philly?  I certainly hope not.

 

For many years I was and still am proud that we are not like the mutants down in Philly.  Maybe that's why I get pretty heated when I see and hear fans wanting to aspire to become that as it just sucks to even think that.

 

Theres wanting to make our atmosphere loud and "intimidating" to the opposing team and then there's being like Philly. I think we can all agree that we dont envy anything about Philly.

They were boring as could be and the atmosphere was so quiet they would rival what we have been seeing at the Rock this year.  I remember going to games where the upper deck at the CAA had no more than 1-2K in them and that deck was HUGE.

 

Results helped, but those games were pretty boring.

 

But again, what is your point? You summed up earlier that the problem you have with YS is that it is not Some of the time, but Most of the time. So I mentioned how on-ice product had to with the ratio of various chants at any given game. Going back to the 90s doesnt add anything to the discussion as the YS chant didnt exist back then. If anything your post supports the fact that the Pru Center made our atmosphere astronomically better. Much of that was due to mass transit, and having a bit of a rowdy element in the building.
