i'll watch the game at home if i need it to be quiet. I turned down tickets to game 7 against Chicago in 2011 for exactly that reason.
If i am going to watch a game with 19000 other people i fully expect it to be loud. Sure it is fun to watch the game develop from the angles one gets in the arena. However, I am paying for an atmosphere and to be a part of the game. It shouldn't be just to watch.
These fanclubs aren't just singing anything. They are singing songs directed at players, directed at the teams. There is thought put into it to support the team. They aren't cheesy. They develop a better atmosphere because they give enough voice to a chant for it to be heard. I don't agree with just being drunken *******s telling players(especially our own) to go **** themselves. That isn't what these guys are doing.
We badly need something more than "Go Canucks Go" and "Luuuuu." We used to chant for players. a "nazzy" chant. an "MVP" chant. we barely hear a taunt against the opposing goalie anymore. I personally love it when you get a good cheer going and the crowd is engaged. There is a buzz in the air that everyone feels.
