Typical power play:

That chant is "suppose" to motivate the team, and that's only one chant of a traditional hockey chant. That little kipper-kid that pretends to play goalie in the stands could (arguable) motivate kipper to play better. There are thousands of examples, but I certainly don't understand your difference.

Clowns = Entertainers, and hockey players = entertainers, but hockey players don't equal clowns because hockey players are athletes that play a sport whereas clowns are just weird entertainers. The point is that a hockey player's role in society is to entertain, as are clowns, actors, singers, etc. They didn't want to be booed, then they should've joined the peace choir.
Where did I say a chant did not motivate a team? Booing an opposition player motivates a player. Booing a player on your own team does not.
When you get to school tomorrow ask your teacher for a little help on this subject.
You are entertaining me does that make you a clown.
