It'll cut down on the budget available for hiring assistant GM's though. Might have to lay off a half dozen of them.

I'm sorry, can you read?

Christ. You posted something that was biased in regards to attitudes within the building between fans (that cheering is discouraged and looked down upon), and I said that my experiences are completely different from that and I don't really understand the basis for them. You then responded with (and are continuing to do so apparently) a completely unrelated little diatribe about a non-existent poll of NHL players as if that is relevant to what you said and what I responded to. I bloody told you I don't think the ACC is loud or a particularly respectable environment given the stature of the Leafs.

Yawn dude.

You clearly dont go to many games. Platinum and court-side have plenty of people in suits for Raps games.

You're whole argument is that because you jumped up and tried to start a cheer, and people looked at you like you were a male cheerleader, and stayed int heir seat, that there is something wrong with the crowd. You're like the guys at Jays games who pathetically try to start the wave. Just do what you want at the game, and let people do their own thing.

When something exciting happens in a Leafs game, fans rich and poor will be cheering.

Suits are regular people. They are just more successful than you and clearly that makes you jealous

Aside from the actual on-ice performance a significant contributory factor is that the ACC is palpably NOT an intimidating venue for visiting teams. The only consistent noise come from the 500 level and gets lost down below.

The key areas down near ice-level are filled with the suits. Now here is the rub. I've never thought the best place to watch a hockey game is near the ice. Mid-level is by far the best for getting the premier all-round view of the ice.

This of course will never happen but until we can get more true hard-core fans down near the ice, making noise, actually supporting the team, the ACC will continue to resemble a library and a friendly place for visiting teams.

MLSE needs to re-brand the seating plans, 'SELL' the premier seats to the suits at mid-level and have the real fans in seats near the ice and up at 500 level and thus 'squeeze out the silence'.

I'd love to hear other thoughts on how the ACC COULD be made a more intimidating venue.
