Most poeple at a game go to games all the time.

I never go to games and even during a regular seaosn game it's kind of hard to get into it if the game itself isn't electric.

All that matters are the playoffs, and it is loud then

"When they drunk"? Rowdy how? Bar fights?

That's such a good look.

haha exactly what I was thinking. while I live in Calgary for university I try to make it out to a few games in Van whenever I can. I was at the first round series (game 2) against LA in 2010 and was there last season for the March 16 game where many had his eye injury and the game following that. Compared to Calgary Rogers arena is nowhere near as loud as much as I hate to say it. HOWEVER -- the fans seem to be smarter and the atmosphere is still great.... even though that obviously doesn't come through on TV

I think most of the time people are just there to relax and enjoy the entertainment. People come from work, they are tired, they have kids with them, maybe they are full from a meal they just had, maybe they work the next morning and don't want to drink too much.

Also remember, one can of beer is $8.50 (im not kidding). You are not going to get very many people rowdy and into it with those prices. Also if you yell too loud, people give you funny looks and ushers tell you to calm down. That is why its quiet.

The fans need some time to work out the kinks and get into the flow of the season, same as the players. I'm sure there's still a lot of ambivalent feelings left over from the lockout, I know I have them, the intensity is not there and probably will not be for about half the season. It's September hockey in January, basically.

I think this is for the best. We can't go and mainline a ton of hockey right away, not after such a long layoff, that's how Janis Joplin died. You gotta be careful, your tolerance is all shot to hell.

i have stopped going to canucks games due to being told to be quiet by ushers when i wasnt curising or even boing just getting loud like fans are supposed to do ... i was also have been to a game where i seen a group of guys infront of me get kicked out stricktly for being rowdy once again not cursing or even booing just getting into it... and fans around them didnt even complain ushers came and told the guys theyw ere being kicked out and our entire section got mad at the ushers as it seemed no fans complained about them the ushers decided on their own to kick them out... and our whole section boo'ed the ushers... ive had my friends not beallowed to bring their flags into the games taken away at the door...... and everything is just so negitive at the rink too u rarly hear a go canucks go chant going during the play or a D-FENCE chant during a PK all u get is razing of the away goalie and booing of the refs.... and cheering for 2 seconds after a goal... anyone watch the spengler cup? thoes 5k fans even when davos is losing put 20k canuck fans to shame.



I went to a game two years ago with my cousin and had the same experience. My cousin is a loud guy but he wasn't being vulgar he just liked to stand up and yell or cheer once in while. Someone behind us complained and the usher told him he couldn't stand up anymore. I can honestly say that is the first time I have ever heard a usher at a sports game tell someone they can't stand up during a game.

Well i have nver been to a game in Calgary but my experience is a lot of the corporate people going to the Canucks game only have a superficial knowledge of the Canucks.

funny... The last two games I went to I was in the lower bowl and cheered like there was no tomorrow and no ushers told me to calm down. I hate people that complain about drink prices. Yes, its expensive but if you cant afford it too bad! you know its expensive before you go so have a few drinks at home or at the shark club right in the sandman. Im a university student and can afford to fly to van, stay at a hotel for a week and go to two games every year and drink... its not hard to do

Another problem is the cheap food and merchandise. All the ppl around me were in and out of their seats the whole game. Most came back 1/2 way into the period with food or merchandise.. Glad it will be over by wed. It's really annoying

I was at both weekend game.

Sometimes I think that our fans have become so spoiled with 2 straight president's trophies that anything less than perfection is equal to absolute disaster. So when the fans at the games aren't seeing goals, fights, and hits every few seconds, they become really turned off. But I dunno, I guess it's a mix of everything.


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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.


And I don't know if this was just a general statement or if it was directed right at me, but I wasn't trying to force people to agree with me lol.

I am from Berlin, Germany. You have the best players of the world and you can't make noise.

Our owner (Anschutz) built new arena (15000 seats) in 2008 where the NHL opened up last year with LA vs. Buffalo.

We also have vip boxes but we have a true fan base that fought for stances.

The prices for these 2000 tickets are low so they are able to come to games and chant the whole time....

the noise is like that because everyone is on their edge of the seat waiting to see if the canucks will hold on or not... more than likely just sitting there waiting for the expected to happen

too many suits and too many brand new Canadians that don't even know the game, lethal combination.
Winnipeg gets rabid hockey fans, not businessmen on their blackberries or people that just moved here from Hong Kong/India.
dont forget about the puck bunnies. skanks and snake charmers either. usually too busy runway modelling the stairs or looking around for fresh meat.
lastly, any of the remaining noise making contingent is usually too stoned.
The noise level has gone down as the percentage of "corporate" seats rises.


Definitely. More interested in getting attention than actually learning hockey or watching the game. Kind of like the King of the BS.

On the contrary...

People seem to forget these so called corporate individuals or individuals who aren't the typical fans (cheer like crazy, get smashed... etc.) are the ones that give the team most support financially and influence to our city.

It's not just about ticket sales but sponsorship and everything else that gives the Canucks the ability to always spend to the cap, invest in player development, training staff... etc.

And also, Vancouver is completely culturally diverse and our city is consistently changing, not everyone cheers the same. Not everyone is going to ones jumping around or screaming loudly.

The enjoyment level of any sport is not measured that way.




The only thing I agree, is the phones have to go.

Could always pull a Patriots move and play fan noise over the speakers? Or not. Yeah, let's not be douchebags and instead just cheer harder.

I don't know what all the complaining is about. I'll cheer when we score, and go OHHHHH when we have a chance and Luuuuuu! at a big save. Other than that, I just wanna watch the game and talk to whoever im with.

In the playoffs it seems pretty amped up, and we'll have some good cheers for a good shift and such.

lol this.

i was at the opener and these 4 skanky looking girls that were dressed like snookie wannabes left about halfway through the 2nd period and didn't come back, guess they were late for the club and their daddy/boyfriend/pimp gave them the tickets just to kill time before the club. waste of space

STH here.

I don't really know what fans expet from us. I attend over 90% of the games a year.

You guys expect me to get **itfaced and scream 3 times a week? Pretty taxing.

The last 2 games were particularly quiet because of the 50% of merchandise sale. Lots of line ups for food and merch.

You'd be surprised how few 'suits' actually attend games.

I will say though, many newer Asian fans don't talk nevermind cheer.

Canucks rink is probably one of the quietest in the league sadly.

I think it's partly due to the music and feel of the game. How can anyone get pumped when most of the music is from the last year or so and catered to pop culture.

Secondly, it's all the suits. There's so many people at Canuck games that don't even care. It's sad really.

It's quite disheartening to even be at the game. Our team has so much talent and done so much for Canuck fans, and we can't even give them any motivation.

Few more things.

Once you go to 100, 200 and 300 games you start becoming accustomed to going. I take friends all the time. I cheer more than most people and have drinks during intermission. The novelty of screaming and cheering till you're red in the face wears away.

Most people who are the 'real fans' go once or twicea year and really go all out for those games.

The best way to have a better crowd would be to scale down on STH and have a higher turn over of 'once n a while' game attendees.

I went to both the Anaheim and Edmonton and the crowd noise on Saturday was much better compared to yesterday. It's hard to start a cheer when only a handful of people within your surrounding area are joining in but the rest of the 18,000 don't catch on.


When fans in the upper bowl started Lets go Oilers chant, all we did was boo back.. I tried doing Oilers suck but nobody caught on

I agree that Rogers Arena is at times pathetic. It has been now for the last few years. I think it's because ticket prices are so high, you are getting a huge portion of the tickets going to older wealthier people or businessmen. And its the same people that are going to every game. They lack the excitement that someone who only can afford to go once a year has. I mean really, who's going to cheer louder, Sir Reginald the third and his business associates, or Thetus and his buddies from the trailer park who saved beer cans for half a year to buy their tickets.

The crowd feel is a reflection of the people in the city.

Go to a game in Buffalo, Philly, Winnipeg etc. Lots of atmosphere, lots of yelling, lot of blue collar guys that can afford to go to the game.

Vancouver is a very yuppie, half-caf foamy soy frappucino, pretentious, expensive city. The blue collar guy/girl can't afford to go to many games given the cost of living here.

Look at the crowds at BC Lions games. Lots of fun and lots of dudes driving in from Chilliwack once a week to sit in seats that cost them $40. The one complaint about the Lions last season was that ticket prices are starting to creep up. What do you know?!?! Attendance goes down.

The more expensive a product becomes, the more exclusive it becomes. The more exclusive it becomes, the more pretentious people are attracted to it. Pretentious people would never lower themselves to yell at a ref as it might just make them look less awesome.

I have seats in the club section and see it all the time...

Exactly. Lets see the crowd after wed. Pretty hard to have ppl cheering when most of the ppl leave half way through the period to go lineup for food and merchandise so that they can beat the huge lineups.

This

It's not the fault of the ushers though. They are just employees following rules they have been given.

I do think this is precisely the problem, and a reason why Vancouver has been labelled a no fun zone. It's beautiful, but how it got so ANAL is just unbelievable.

"When they drunk"? Rowdy how? Bar fights?

That's such a good look.


Lets just say louder, anyways point is don't bring race into this issue. I'm not east indian just went to high school with alot them and they not reserve and shy as Chinese People.

And your clueless, so how was the majority of Caucasians rioting? Rioting is not a good look right? Who cares about bar fight is nothing compared to rioting and potential hurting innocent people.

I can believe business people being less loud etc but I don't believe race is an issue. I think business and age if anything has more to do with how drunk or loud you get at a game.
