Back in the day you used to be able to get loaded, scream your face off and have as much fun as you wanted so long as you didnt swear or throw stuff.

 

But then all these corporate suited up losers and their clients decided a hockey game is the place to go to show face, talk business and be uptight wankers.

 

Fricken suits ruining everything

The Fricken suits are the reason why we still have a team.

I watched a lot of hockey in Germany. Solution take the seats out of the two end zones in the lower bowl. Sell cheap season tickets in one end zone to Canuck fans that go to every game and are noisy, don't mind standing in close quarters. Give them a drummer and flags. The other end zone have the visiting teams fans. Take season tickets in the end zone away from quiet fans and encourage noise and chants. Have a pregame show that involves singing the same songs each game about vancouver stuff. Whenever a players name is announced only his first name is announced and the fans scream the last name in unison. Teach fans chants smarter and more complicated than go team go. Even consider the lower bowl opposite the club seats to also be parlty standing only with crazy fans.

78.09% nitrogen

20.95% oxygen

0.93% argon

0.04% carbon dioxide

Maybe when the game starts.  Methane count gets prominent a little while after the hotdogs are eaten, and of course the inevitable bad calls by the officials.

 

On a serious note, sure, having people sing would be great for some energy and making it fun.  Might even help drown out those Habs and Leafs fans when they're in town.

I felt the same way about watching hockey in the Czech Republic. Having fan zones in the ends was great. People were louder, rowdier, and got the crowd fired up. Plus beers were like 2 bucks...

I'm all for a rowdy atmosphere but the idea of waving flags and singing songs and trying to copy soccer just sounds really cringy. It works for soccer because they have a culture and history built around it. I don't think it would work for hockey.

 

 

plus nothing would piss me off more than paying hundreds of dollars for a seat and not be able to see what's going on because some idiot in front of me is waving a flag.

If Linden allows these guys for every game it will change things.

You mean like how the suits decided we should go to China and not the Olympics?

I just miss the "Go Canucks Go" chants. Also A LOT of people on them phones..like seriously don't come if you're going to be on your phone  for majority of the game.

No, the ones that pay millions of dollars for luxury suites, and tickets in the lower bowl so we can pay our players the 70 million bucks a year along with other costs like the building etc.. 

 

without corporate support, we no longer have a team get it?
