I think the lack of noise is a function of 2 things...

1. We're Canadians... We're not a noisy people by nature...
2. We're watching hockey in a gigantic cave that has no sound retention capabilities...

Like seriously, not one person looked at the design of the MC, and said... "Huh... This design will not preserve crowd noise at all..." I mean really people, you design a bowl, then give it a huge dome over top, it's not going to help. So we have to make 3 - 4 times more noise, to have half the sound of 'The Jack'... Yes we're putting more people in, but, we're still losing so much sound to the roof... Wait until we start putting banners up, they absorb sound too... So... Yeah...

It's not like there is anything much that can bed done except getting louder, though I don't believe many of us could be prouder of our team, our city or our Canadian Heritage.

What about that drum-line that was at a few games last year? They kinda amped things up a bit. Was really nice to have, and gave us a break from the organ, and loudspeaker. Kinda broke it up a bit. Made it different. Not that I don't love the idea of cheerleaders for a hockey game ( yes, sarcasm ), but I'd rather have a drum line or something like that... I don't find the cheerleaders bring that much to the game, they don't really pump the crowd up, they do a short dance routine and follow Laura-Leigh around. I know some people love having them at games, but, if I were to be honest, I don't see a purpose to them.

I would hate if anyone felt my comments here are negative, especially about the cheerleaders, I get that they can only do what they can do, and that there are fans who love them. But I, personally, just think there are better ways to pump up a crowd, and create noise, and I think that the Drum-line does a better job at entertaining people, and building noise.
