Regardless of the sincerity of this post, I actually think it just might. Hey, couldn't hurt to switch things up a bit, right?

I blame casual fans who end up with tickets.

really, you blame the casual fans for the reason they didnt show up in the 2nd period last night? The Flyers had all the momentum going into game 4, and look where that got them. Im not putting any credence into momentum when it comes to this series, it is to bizarre.

Fact: The Giants are Super Bowl Champions because their cheerleaders just wanted it more.

If Ryan Howard never crippled himself his fiance simple didn't have her heart in it and that's why the Eagles fell so far below expectations.

Regardless of whether it actually affects Crosby or not, it's a really stupid ****ing chant. Probably the most stupid regular chant in all of sports (and practically endorsed by the home building to boot). My opinion of anyone that actually supports this chant is not too high.

No I blame the casual fans for the continued existence of the "Crosby Sucks" chant. It's ignorant and not creative at all. Yet we keep going back to the well with the water that kills us...

It's an easy enough chant to keep going. It's going to happen. Just like 'refs you suck' and 'a-hole.'

Besides, he might not suck at hockey, but Crosby still sucks.

Nothing gets fans going like having a hated rival. There will be plenty of positive cheers and chants as well, provided the team makes it fun to watch.

The point is, why motivate him? He always kicks our ass in Philly when it matters.

"Hey guys, can you stop chanting that? I think it's stupid and I think you're stupid for chanting it."

Wow, you guys should teach a class on the art of persuasion.

to think chants help or hurt a team is ludicrous. if you really ask anyone who plays, when the whistle blows its zoned out. people who spend that kind of money going to a game can say whatever the hell they want alosng as its within the confines of Arena policies. so lets censor the chants. then lets prevent lauren from singing " God Bless America" because canadiens and atheists consider it silly and thers no point to it.

sounds crazy but thats how things start.

focus on the fkin game people.

If you don't think chants make a difference, you have never played a sport.

Just look at any quote from a player in the 70,80,90's. They were actually petrified of playing in the Spectrum due to the atmosphere.

Yes, but they jinxed Roloson so that he wouldn't score In all seriousness, though, I liked the chant a lot, and it's incredible how the entire hall pulls it off.

We didn't need the chant...Giroux's hit on Crosby and then scoring the first goal on the first shot was more than enough...

Now that is a true statement....

And as soon as I say something, it starts, although half-heartedly.

So... couldn't help but notice that Gustafsson's goal came moments after the crowd started a "Let's Go Flyers" chant (the wrong syllabus emphasis, but whatever). The hockey karma gods are just.
