Noise level at Rogers Arena

142 posts in this topic

This has never been discussed before. <_<

But here's my answer anyway, even though people write out the same arguments every year to say it's all the suits or the ticket prices or the acoustics or the goal song/intro/music sucks (plenty of goal and intro song threads at the moment discussing this as we speak) or whatever. It sounds quiet on TV, when I've always found it pretty good when you're actually in the arena.

  1. I like our goal song, and was a big supporter of changing to it. Of all the songs I've seen proposed (including our old goal song, Holiday) it got the most posts of support that people at least thought it was decent when normally you can't get anyone to agree on anything other than they don't like something.

  2. Empty seats at arenas happens to everyone. Sometimes people can't get to a game and don't find someone to give their tickets to or sell them. It happens, you can't fix that.

  3. You can't fix ticket prices either, it's supply and demand. Even if prices were lower, the same groups of people would still be buying the tickets for their businesses and the like. That still doesn't mean that someone in the lower bowl doesn't cheer just as hard as someone in the upper.

  4. Any team that considers itself a contender for the Stanley Cup needs the fans to give them a boost to win games isn't really a contender at all. These guys are just fine and absolutely capable of winning games regardless of what we do.

In the end, you have your opinion, and we don't have to agree.

lower beer prices

sell more seats to people who care enough to be there and not just because they are a client of someone.

I was there last night. A guy in front of me was on his phone the whole game...

The rise of smart phones and people checking mortgage rates or NFL scores is scary. (I've seen this)

Well if you've been to many games the one thing you will notice is a lot of the fans attending the games is the people who attend to " be there " and " be seen ". Maybe more so for the lower bowl, however its all too common for people to be on the cell phones or chatting like they are at a lunch meeting not even paying attention to the game.

Obviously there is great fans in attendance and for the most part the games are a great experience atmosphere-wise. But the noise is in my opinion directly related to who is at the games.

Place was dead for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals when I was there until Torres scored with less than 30 seconds to go.

This city needs to embrace fan culture. If the team loses, you should still be saying damn I had a good time anyway. When I was at the open scrimmage, people were standing which is nice to see in a hockey setting but a huge amount of people sitting closer to the back (which meant they probably showed up late) relentless told everyone to sit down. I don't expect standing to happen much at a hockey game anyway, but I'm also a Whitecaps season ticket holder in the supporter end and the treatment is the same which is ridiculous since it is a standing approved section and I'm being told by people who are single ticket owners.

My point is until the people in this city realize that sometimes they need to create the energy and excitement, you're going to have dead buildings. Not to say the players need the fans involvement to help them, but sometimes when a team is down, they could use the energy from the crowd to get them back in it. Get them thinking "we got to do this for this crowd".

I have season tickets and usually sell most of my games. One of the reasons (apart from cost) is the lack of atmosphere and "absolutely having to be there"

I bought Seahawks season tickets this past season. You want to hear crowd noise, passion and un-wavering support for a sports team? Go a game at CenturyLink. This video I took before the SF game is only a snippet.

High ticket prices + large corporations buying seats = Not a great atmosphere.

Sorry guys, but this is how Rogers Arena is. It's pathetic, and it's almost embarrassing to be at some of these home games. It's corporate people on their cell phones updating their status with "AT THE GAME! GO CANUKS!" or it's young families with babies that are too young to be anywhere near a hockey game.

This will NEVER change. They're not going to lower ticket prices so they can attract a livelier bunch. Like the people making money out of this whole process really care.

i was at the game last night and i thought the noise level was good for what was happening on the ice. this fan base knows hockey. the most anoying thing i find is the p.a. system telling me to "make some noise" when nothing is happening. usually just after a tv timeout, with the faecoff at center.

fans got behind lou every time he made a key save.

fans loved the fight.

the game whas a bit of a snoozer.

its more exiting to come back and win than to give up a lead.

we are a passionate fan base not just a noisy one.

stop baming the suits in the lower bowl. they attend more games and expect more.

tv time outs are killling the pace of the game.stop analyzing other fans and watch the game. maybe the guy on the phone was listening to play by play.

I was at the Ducks and Oilers game this weekend and it was pretty dull compared to the rest of the league (as always).

DJ Dave plays garbage and our new intro is pathetic (fits the "Canucks are wussies" theme quite well :( ).
