Nobody is saying you have to drink five beers and start cheering obnoxiously, but you're making it seem like you refuse to clap a single time when a "Let's go Pens" chant starts or something.

Maybe you don't have to blow the roof off of the building, but at the very least let somebody know you're in it.
I think people overstate the number of people going to games and making no noise at all. As I said though, I have never been in the lower bowl at all.

Also, a lot of players and even coaches will tell you how intimidating it can be to play in a building like that and that can go a long way believe it or not.

Ask Claude Giroux how "intimidating" the crowds at Consol were in the playoffs last season. That little ***** would laugh in your face, and that needs to change.
No offense taken. You're just wrong, that's all. Maybe the games you were at were different; but the games I've been to at Consol were every bit as loud as the games I've been to in Philly. I have never been to a Pens game in Consol where the fans all around me weren't loud and into the game. It's never been crazy; but its been noisy. Actually, it was pretty freaking crazy when the game went to OT and when there were some big hits. I have been to a game in Philly where the Flyers fans were being noticeably out-yelled by the Penguins fans in the building.

Maybe the games I have been to are bad representations of the typical crowds. But don't tell me I'm wrong about my own experience.
