I think we can do better, I also think he is a curse to the team, just me being superstitious but in playoff games his anthem singing doesn't get me going and his little kiss into the camera makes our stadium look amateur and soft imo.
I like Lyndon singing the anthems. I find most of the other anthem singers in the league to be cringe worthy, but the good constable can acctually hold a tune.

So sorry that you don't approve of me answering the thread title question. In my opinion, Lyndon Slewidge is as stale as stale gets. I didn't say to get rid of him entirely, just that they should mix it up every now and then.

Lyndon's shtick has been exactly the same since day 1. Cop uniform, hold the last note forever, wink to the camera.

It's lame.

Sorry you don't like my opinion, but then I guess you aren't reading this anyway

You do understand he is a cop.

He's not a real cop. He's a "freedom of information co-ordinator"

Maybe he USED to pull people over for speeding on HWY 17, but he hasn't been anywhere near a real police job for a very long time.

Call him what ever you want but the bottom line is he still works for the opp and is based out of smith falls.

Somebody please harpoon that guy and put him out of my misery.

I don't mind Slewidge, but get others' beef with him. Schtick aside, he does a great job with the anthem.

Rene Rancourt is pretty epic, btw.

Real organ x100000

1 song for all Sens' goals- it's a ****ing team, after all.



~0:17

(or some other band... I guess )

Stu needs to just say the players' names, and forget about prepping the fans and leaving it to them. Fans will just join in anyway- don't make it an obligation.

Real organ.

Trumpet guy. I haven't seen the marching band, sounds cool.

Stop playing "everybody clap your hands".

More hot dog cannon.

Lower the goal horn volume, we can cheer, dammit.

"That breakdancing guy" has a name. He used to do Sens games. And that name has been mentioned already:

Certainly some good thoughts in here...

-The music and scoreboard like everyone said. There is too much heavy metal. The majority of people still paying for tickets are over the age of 40. They don't want to hear that crap. I'm 30 and can tolerate it, but to hear the entire warm-up of Godsmack or whatever the hell it is get's tiresome pretty quick. The in game selection does improve, but it is fairly repetitive. Good music selection engages people. I've seen it at other arenas around the NHL and it works.

The scoreboard issue is a joke. Not going to comment.

-Stop with the noise-o-meter during a tv timeout when the players are standing at the benches. It's pathetic. Do it when they are coming to the faceoff or during a rush.

-There should be a ban on people yelling, "shhoootttttt, shhhoootttt". I can't stand that. Shut the hell up! Like the players are listening or the fans know better.

-Mic the players and broadcast over the sound-system what they are saying during scrums. Now that would get you your money's worth!

-Ban old people from getting up during the middle of a powerplay like they always seem to because they need to go take a dump during the second period. Obviously the 3rd period wouldn't matter, as they leave to be home in bed by no later than 9pm anyway.

-2 for 1 beer night against non playoff, southern U.S teams (i.e Florida, Atlanta, Carolina)

-Have a John Muckler sweater night

This & cheerleaders.

Also, instead of having that blind fold guy trying to find the bag of money. Take the bag of money up to the rafters near the end of the 3rd period & let all the money fall out of the bag down to the fans who are still there. That would prevent a lot of people from leaving early. Each game drop it from a different area of the rink.
