The Knicks play it, so why don't the Rangers? It seems obvious that the Rangers should be playing it because of the "Potvin Sucks" chant. Even though I don't like the chant, it gets fans into the game, so it seems pretty ridiculous that it isn't played. Do the Rangers not like the chant or something?

iirc, the league disallowed it, even though they allow the islanders to play if you're happy and you know it

They don't allow teams to play an organ or whatever during the play? Is that an airhorn during Caps games?

This is the answer. Email Ray Castoldi. He'll confirm for you.

I'm pretty sure MSG made the decision to stop playing "Let's Go Band" and not the league. I think MSG wanted to "clean up" some of the behavior at the Garden.

Vomit-inducing. Suck it up, its a mens game.

Same reason they now IMMEDIATELY go to a loud song after Larry dances (to stop the '**mo larry' chants. Also why they almost NEVER show replays on the garden screen that might be controversial. God forbid people get angry.

Enough of the family friendly crap.


Also, i don't know how the caps get away with that horn *during play*.

Yeah, by dancing?

I'm not going to lie and say i've never referred to him by his nickname, but with how angry some of the Garden fans (see: obnoxious loud idiots) get at him, you might think they'd look at themselves.

I don't get angry and I don't yell. I'm embarrased to be in the same building. He's like that tool "Fireman Ed". It's completely about them and just screaming "LOOK AT ME!!!PLEASE!!!!".

Well we obviously look at what he does different so we'll agree to disagree on what he does.

Funny to watch before you realize people think it's actually cool to do it.

That's definitely true. I always hoped they wouldn't pick the section I'm sitting in.

Its not an air horn at Caps games, its some guy with a horn like a vuvuzuela. I went down to DC for a Rangers Caps game about two years ago and that's how I found out.

Well if anything hockey should be more PG or PG-10ish than rated R. It's pretty obvious that there are always a select few adults who get outta hand never kids...since the kids actually control themselves I'd say cater to the better behaved customers : lookin at YOU Philly.Really though mens game? It's JUST a game. Game. Gotta think of what that word means. It's not bloodsport or gladiator life and death combat it's a game. It should probably be enjoyed on a kid level by people of all ages. I've screamed and yelled at games and heckled the crap out of goalies but nothing worse than "Hey Marty! 20,000 people just told you you SUCK!"

Honestly I wish everyone was like dancing larry and we were all up and chanting in unison for 5 minutes at a time and dancing and waving our hands with smiles on our faces. Much better than the disjointed crowd noise, handful of beer swilling miserable old men and the odd parent-child group. Well not exactly like Larry we'd be knocking each other out by accident with that wild rain dance.

That said yea getting rid of the Potvin sucks chant is pretty lame. Although I guess maybe they didnt wanna condone the song I'd buy that. Doesn't bother me either way we do the whistle. *(and miserable men on this board whine about THAT too)

Not sure why everybody gets on Larry. He's at every game and lives and breathes Rangers. I'd take 18,200 of Larry anyday rather than some of the idiots I see at MSG.....or the suits that don't show up until halfway through the 1st period (if they show up at all)

Larry had the balls to do his dance at the winter classic in front of 35,000+ angry Flyer Fans......Hat's off to him
