Crowd Noise in Rogers Arena

92 posts in this topic

I went to a few playoff games during our 2011 run and it was deafening, I agree during the regular season it's kind of pathetic unless we're playing a team like chicago or toronto or montreal etc.

and even then we usually get drowned out by leaf or hab fans

I agree that there shouldn't be a goal song.

It might encourage people to make more noise. I'd also like to see more chants among the fans, but we've had that discussion on here before and as a whole people generally prefer to be boring and sit on their hands.

really? I've always though that we've had die hard fans...

at every game I've been to, everyone is so pumped! its just that music gets too loud and drowns most of the crowd noise level.

you make it seem like we have the worst fans ever.

Why not chant/cheer/make noise during gameplay when there isn't music being played? If the crowd shows this and it becomes something pretty special, maybe management will look into crowd participation instead of goal songs, etc. There is opportunity, the crowd just needs to take it.

DJ Dave drowns out every chant the crowd gets going. I don't understand why every whistle he has to play some sort of hit from the 80s, and then throw up the "kiss cam" so everyone gets distracted. After every whistle there should be a reaction from the fans whether they are for it or against it, that way momentum slowly builds.

So if the puck goes out of play there should be a reaction, if it's icing there should be a reaction, if it's offside there should be a reaction..? Unless it's an absolutely horrible icing or offside call then what is there to react to

Maybe not a reaction to the play, but it is an opportunity to cheer on the boys on the ice with a chant or something. Whether it's a player specific chant or some sort of team boost. Anything to help give the team an edge for the next shift.

IMO its because ticket prices are crazy. When I go to games I still see crazy nucks fans but I see a lot of business people. Many businesses buy season tickets and give it out to clients. I think if prices were lower we would have a lot of the die hard canucks fans in the building.for example when I went to a game in chi town the ticket prices weren't bad at all, and that place is nuts ! Its soo loud you can't hear yourself think, remember this is just my opinion

Ticket prices are really high, and a lot of the crowd is full of suits. Look how loud BC Place is and how cheap the tickets are.

But, you know, Aquilini is one of those owners who is willing to spend money, others owners might not want to, to win. Those suits might be one of the many reasons he is willing to do that.

I'm more worried about how hard our fans can be on certain players. When you begin to boo a player for a bad performance before the game is over, instead of cheering him on, you are practically quitting on the player. Boo the whole team AFTER the game. Don't lose your crap before the game is done. Stay composed, so our boys can do the same.

I think crowd noise has the ability to be more detremintal (boo's and jeering) then benificial (being as loud as the ACC when the Leafs win 2 in a row).

They should play Eiffel 65's Blue at every stoppage. That would get the crowd riled up.

Drunk fans do not make better fans. Especially those that become violent and crude. It should be loud, proud but family freindly. You should never have any trouble bringing your kid to their first hockey game.
