Not a fan of singing or prolonged chants, but I just want to hear cheers, jeers, boos, and woos for everything that happens on the ice, be it goals, hits, saves, missed calls, offsides, etc.


Bingo, I am yelling non stop I worry people get mad sometimes but I can't help it I am pumped.

I don't think the lack cheering and noise has anything to do with us being unenthusiastic.

It's more so that the tickets are super expensive and used by business people like it's a meeting place or time to talk on their phone.


That being said, I don't think we need to take anything from European fans.

I would love something like this to happen. I was watching the game today...we had the 5 minutes powerplay and some follow-up pp's after that and the Canucks couldn't get anything going. I could barely hear a "Go Canucks Go", they need energy to feed off of and the crowd was just "meh". We get our 4th goal and everyones nuts "GO CANUCKS GO", seriously? I don't entirely buy that business crowd reason either(although its somewhat true). Refer to other games including play-off games where the crowd does cheer, regardless of/including the bizniz peeps - I don't find it a good enough excuse. I also agree with one of the posters above about Vancouver fans being snotty. The first thing that would need to happen to get something like this going is trash the "get your buds first and see how it turns out" method of thinking. Pushing this into our hockey culture will be a challenge, but it's definitely doable...all it takes are a few one game and a few the next.

Works so well with soccer because the game is much slower. In hockey there's so much action and back and forth play so chanting wouldn't really work.

I think the noise in the arena is based on the DJ or goal announcer. They could create tradition

I grew up with soccer and loved the atmosphere at the games in England BUT it just doesn't fit here. This isn't a knock on the fans or anything. It just feels weird with hockey and if there's anything I hate about Whitecaps games it's the fake English yobbo accents adopted for the chanting and singing. Hockey is a different sport. As someone already mentioned, it's faster and you need to follow it more closely. There's less time to get into any singing. Chanting's different. We already chant, but there's less said (wow - Go Canucks Go - pretty weak). "Vancouver" + "Canucks" is pretty damned awkward don't you think? If you really want to try it, you'd need a group sitting together to start it and to keep it going. Maybe others will pick it up but I have my doubts.

Absolutely. I'm trying to think of ways to possibly get this going, looking at some tickets for me and a group of friends... Thinking of making a youtube video with some song ideas that we can all get used to, hope for it to go viral. I have a youtube account with tons of subscribers from back when I used to make hockey videos, hopefully it will catch on.

I am all for this... If any of you have had the opportunity to attend a Rangers game at MSG knows what fan participation is.



Canucks should come up with a contest for chants to get more fan participation.

Chants are one thing...but singing an entire sing? Never gonna work. Unless you're envisioning 19,000 fans having no reaction to whats happening on the ice. Any missed call, big hit, great save, near goal, or odd-man rush and that singing is gonna stop. Fans are gonna react more to whats happens on the ice (and I'm one them) over singing a song....and something is almost always happening during hockey.

Just my opinion.

Fans sing at soccer games because the games are boring. 90% of the game is played in the middle of the field, and other than a half dozen or dozen times a game the ball doesn't even get near the net.

Singing at a hockey game would distract me from the game. Cheering is good enough for me.

No it's because we want to watch the game. I still cheer loudly for good plays or to encourage the team. But I paid money to watch my favourite hockey team play hockey, not make a wave effect with a bunch of people, that doesn't even look cool. It's distracting. I
hate the wave because it blocks my view and it might cause me to miss a goal, hit, or save. Does that make me a suit who doesn't care about hockey? Like I said I still watch the game and cheer enthusiastically, I just prefer not to join in the wave or sing because I would rather be mentally involved in what's on the ice.

Why do some people insist on telling others how to cheer etc? I'm not talking about business people that just sit around and text all game, but what about people who care about the team and actually focus on the hockey game. Are they less of a fan than people who just do the wave and don't really pay attention to the hockey game they paid to watch?


Probably yes. Not saying you have to act obnoxiously, but you'd think if you were mentally involved "that" much or as much as you think you are you'd inevitably end up being at least a little, psyched up!

It's true the main difference between NA fans and the rest of the world Asia, South America and Europe is NA fans lack the passion. I love the canucks and everything to do with them expect going to games, I feel asleep at 1 and yawned like crazy at the others, The games were great but no atmosphere at all. I would rather go to the local pub and watch the games because there is an atmosphere. Lions and whitecaps games are WAY better to go to because it's an event. Going to a nucks game is about status IMO. Something like a chant( singing I don't think will work in hockey) would be great for the nucks. I'm not a big habs fan but damn would I love to watch a game at the bell centre because it's more of an event.

I completely understand the point the OP is trying to make. There was a time when Canucks fans were credited as being some of the best in the league. Now watching the Habs escpecially, or the Bruins, or Blackhawks shows what fans SHOULD sound like. It seems to me that Van fans have become as passive as the players were in the finals last year.

Lets get loud and proud and maybe some of that passion rubs off on the players to step it up every home game.

With something like this where you're asking for a lot of people to step out of their comfort zones, I think you'd have to slowly change the social norms inside the rink. First step would play the song frequently so everybody eventually knows it. Then between whistles when they play the song, put up the lyrics and try to get people to sing along. Once people witness that it's socially ok to sing along, hopefully people would eventually just break out into song whenever they like.

To do something like that, I think you'd need a huge movement for it, and you'd have to get the Canucks on board with it so the lyrics would be put up on the screen. Also, I think for the first time they put the lyrics on the screen, you'd have to make sure it actually caught on by being at the game with a large group of people. This way it hopefully wouldn't be talked about in a negative light after the game. The timing of it would also be crucial because people won't be singing along if the team is losing.

I think the idea is a little far-fetched but with enough time and effort, somebody could probably pull it off.

Couldn't agree more, being Brazilian myself it was kind of a shock when I first went to Rogers Arena (GM place at the time) and everybody would just be quiet other than goals or big hits, looked like a theater :/ I know it isn't really part of your culture but you should really try and get that going, would make our home ice advantage even bigger.

Of course I'm psyched up. It's not like I just sit there quietly and don't yell or cheer or anything like that. I'm just psyched up about stuff that happens in the game, not in the crowd. And doing the wave takes me out of the game.


I agree that Rogers Arena is too quiet, but you don't have to do songs or organized chants or anything to have a good crowd atmosphere. Think of important playoff games, where
the crowd is really into the game, and lets a huge roar with even the smallest good play and rises out of their seat when a scoring chance happens. This is just me, but I prefer that to organized
chants and the wave and stuff.

I was actually thinking about what JCGE what sound like at a hockey game a few days ago. And I thought about posting on here, but I assumed I'd just get a negative response.

"I paid my money to watch the game quietly, not sing or clap or dance."

BOOORRRRIIIINGGG. For me, the atmosphere and having a good time is part of the experience of going to a big game. You expect it. It adds to the enjoyment. There's nothing better than jumping up and down to JCGE at Celtic Park, or singing YNWA as the teams come onto the pitch. Hockey is lacking in that department, and I give props to the OP for realising this.

What about some sort of end to end chant? One end of the arena sings, the other repeats? It's not so much a song as it is a chant really. Like this:

That said, I am generally for things that promote fan unity..................but for me this suggestion has been poisoned by its association with European soccer crowds.

I suppose if someone came up with an incredibly relevant song for a Canucks game...maybe...

"Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades, oh no!"

Such an ignorant and ironic comment given the negative view people have of Vancouver hockey fans these days thanks to the riot.
