Pretty much this. I also think that the NHL compared to European arenas doesn't have certain sections for standing only, like soccer arenas have, could be a reason.

Thank you for teaching me how to behave at a hockey game, sit down and be quite and focus super hard on the difficult to follow game.

Although I prefer hockey than football, this statement is ridiculous.

There's the Silfverberg chant in Sweden - hope that catches on in Ottawa.

The Apples chant... where people proclaim their love for a healthy snack...

Aaaaaaa ples!
Aaaaaaa ples!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAA PLES
AAAAAAAAAAAAAA PLES!

it usually happens after a bad call or when the other team gets away with something the ref didn't see.

Wings fans tend to start singing when the game is looking really good, We also have the odd random chant like the "Todd Bertuzzi" chant in 2010. But those usually just happens in the Playoff's, and I think every teams fans step up with the chants during the Playoff's because everyone is more emotionally involved in those games.

Outside of the Playoff's it's essentially just "Lets Go Red Wings", like mentioned it has to be more a culture thing.

Am I the only one to think the Habs' "Olé" chant is really stupid?

Doesn't mean anything and they pilfered it from soccer.

As a Hawks' fan, I always enjoy the "Detroit Sucks" chant.

Of the recent "Detroit Sucks" chants, I think I enjoyed it the most at an October game of the 2011 season after the Hawks gave up 4 goals in the first.

They were playing Edmonton.

Actually, he does. I find that half the fun in going to soccer games is getting smashed with my friends and singing, chanting, cheering, going mentally insane when my team scores a goal and cursing out the crappy defender who made his usual mistake costing us a goal.

I highly doubt I'm the only one who likes the sport but also likes to get drunk and sing...



And no, the Ole chant is not funny, original, or anything of the sort. It's quite frankly dumb because it's poached from soccer.

no, it's really stupid, but hilarious when other fanbases sing it in a mocking fashion

While you may have a point that it doesn't "fit", I just find it addicting

Yes, you are the only one.

P.S. What would it matter even if it was "pilfered" from soccer? If you spent less time hating, maybe you'd have more time to appreciate more than one sport, as do most Habs and other fans!

I'm pretty sure most people who aren't Habs fans hate that cheer.

As a Habs fan, I personally love it and love that other people get so irritated by it.

Unrelated to hockey, but take it from me, never drink a milkshake before you intend to drink some beers.

It just doesn't mix well.
