Shame on the Montreal Crowd tonight...

I mean come on, we were playing against the best team in the NHL, and the crowd was sleeping.... Only the Johson's goal woke up them. The crowd has the wake up the team, not the contrary.

We were loosing 0-3 against the fastest team in the NHL, it is not a reason to let down the players, but a reason to cheer even more for them. The players were unlucky tonight, they gave a good effort (except for Mr. Kovalev), but I can't say the same for the crowd.

BTW, luck wasn't on our side. Transform the Souray's post and it is 1-1 instead of 0-2....
We lost against a great team tonight. Our PK is doing GREAT as well as our PP.

My 2 cents...

Did you put your sound on? The crowd was yelling Go Habs Go for most of the games, they only took a break between the third goals and the end of the second period.

They even were chanting for Huet after the first goal he gaves.

There wasn't much to cheer about...

They were in it until Huet pulled a Tommy Salo.

Unless RDS cut the sound from the crowd, which is possible with crappy RDS....

What a dull argument, what prevented me? Well, I'm a student, so it's a bit hard to buy a season ticket huh? When I can afford a ticket, I make sure everybody in my section is cheering LOUD.

Every opposing goalie should get the Theo treatment. Hell, skaters too.

I'd do it... if I could afford tickets to every game. And, lived in Montreal....

LOL guys... come on, no need to force people. They just need a leader, at least one per section I won't force them, but I'll convince them to do so by cheering like I did last time... All my section was rocking.

Edit : The crowd was rocking Saturday, it was special and the crowd was altering the concentration of Theodore, which was Great, but we have to do it each evening and not fell asleep as soon as we are loosing 0-3.

The argument is quite fine. You seem to feel you're entitled to criticize paying customers for not supporting the team adequately. Well, they paid. You didn't. Guess which fan the organization prefers?

Good, because on RDS, it seemed silent.

Yes, it's their right to remain silent, but what is the purpose of paying the big price to remain silent ?... I don't know, maybe I'm missing something here...

Sorry, some jackass with a 6 foot long 4 foot wide "KILL THE SABRES" poster madeout of cheap cardboard was sitting 2 isles infront of me. Wasn't too happy when I couldn't see half the game and the team was also losing. Plus they played well in the first and it seemed to go downhill after that. (At least I stayed the entire game and didn't leave to beat the traffic before the 3rd)

I know we are talking about the Habs here, just out of curiosity....have u ever watched a Leafs game or been to the ACC? You can fall asleep during a game without any effort at all...the entire lower section of the ACC is full of suits...if u wanna talk about people paying the Big Price to Remain Silent...its the Leafs fans u should be gearing that towards...not the Habs fans...we have one of the loudest arenas in the entire NHL...full of VERY knowledgeable fans!

Even tho I live in Toronto now...ive been to MANY habs games at the Bell Center...and its the most incredible experience!

I do agree with u that while watching the game on RDS, it can seem like the crowd is very quiet...but thats just the feed...the audio is not the greatest on RDS...ive noticed that for a long time now...

I wasnt able to watch the home opener on CBC (they had to show the Laffs game here instead) so I was stuck watching it on RDS...and let me tell u...i thought to myself..."why is the crowd so quiet...they only BIG cheer I was really able to make out was for Carbo...but it seemed very subdued for the rest of the player. I later read on HF from people that were at the game that the fans were going nuts and it was VERY noisy in there!

I dont know why I just wrote all that...lol...but i guess what I wanted to say is that HABS FANS ROCK and NOTHING comes close to being at a Habs game IN the Bell Center

so let me get this straight.... u didn't go to the game...... and you criticise the fans? Dude, u have no right to do that. I was at the game and it was loud as hell. I was yelling like a maniac.
2nd of all, it wasn't that much of an interesting game to watch but the fans were still loud. My advice? Don't open ur mouth when u don't know what ur talking about

And btw. Don't rag on fans of a team that sells out every game. Whether they cheer or not.
