The rest of the league is discovering just how passionate Winnipeg fans are and the Jets certainly don’t mind tapping into their excitement, posting “We are the loudest fans in the NHL,” on the scoreboard before the game.
I think fans in the Peg just feel extremely fortunate to see their team back and this translates into a loud fanbase. A combination of sheer excitement, relief, and want to make sure they keep it around, so-to-speak.
they cheered after their first game was a loss 5-1. I think they'll be cheering the whole time. If we somehow get back on track, the BC will regain it's status. It's as if our building doesn't care anymore either. It's tuned out JM.
Not that it's a huge deal, but I do like bragging about how we are the loudest and we definitely are, but only in the context of our crowd being the best 7th man and in the playoffs (or even reg. season), the other team does get intimidated when the crowd is roaring. Again, it doesn't matter unless we are even competitive.
there's a small bunch that either do stupid things or have sheep mentality. Overall the crowd is great. The booing only happens when
a) things get really bad
b) when they deserve it
I'd personally never boo the team, but with these powerplays, I'm not against the crowd letting them know they need to do better.
You have heard of boston and philly right?
the na na na goodbye crap(seriously sometimes it gets sung with a 3-1 lead with 18 minutes left in the 3rd)...the ole's...the booing of every star playing on every team for no other reason than they are good(rather than some deep seeded hate), booing their goalie(Price a couple of years ago)...all obnoxious.
It's so obnoxious other fan bases mock us when the habs play against opposing teams in their barns
