Is this a joke we're having now? Are people actually like this in Vancouver?
There is a difference between cheering appropriately and cheering inappropriately. They clearly do not have the right to cheer their ***** off if they are being shut down by security. I have no problem with cheering and the expected crowd noise, but anybody doing so excessively is a nuisance and should be shut down. Like I said, I prefer the silence, so I do stay at home. If the stadium were more quiet and well-behaved, I'd probably go.

It's like going to an EDM concert then complaining there are people screaming besides you.
Yes, I can. However, if some tool is screaming his ass off for missing the net after a shot, that is a nuisance. If some drunkards are banging on the glass and making a mockery of themselves, then that's a nuisance.

Again, I've said that I prefer the silence so I stay at home. I have no problem that the arena makes a lot of noise, but if the team is going to charge me 500$ so that my girlfriend and I can watch a hockey game, then I expect that we can watch the game the way we want to. Of course, that's not realistic, as 20000 other people will have paid a similar amount of money. I understand that I am not entitled to silence at the arena, but I am entitled to make a choice of whether or not I go, and I choose not to go.

The way I see it is different from the two of you. The two of you see it as "I should be able to do what I want," whereas I see it as "what's best for everyone?" If shouting like a lunatic makes your night- even at the expense of those around you- then congratulations- you are happy, but you've probably just negatively affected about a dozen of others' nights.
