I believe the OHL and MC have policies on this. Perhaps identify the section and I am sure MC management would monitor if indeed this is event true.

Neither MC management nor the team monitor the casual racism that occurs in the warm-up music played by Fourgrounds each week. Narcos by Migos and Dreams and Nightmares by Meek Mill are two songs that are played before every home game. Oh yes, Fourgrounds will insist the "sanitized" versions of the songs are played in the building but watch the players desanitze them as they skate around. There is no place for this in community entertainment. Saying that's what the players want doesn't excuse racism.

Iím so happy people are still complaining about music if you (or anyone for that matter) have a problem with it for this reason or another reason take it up with foregrounds themselves or better yet someone from the arena/team

The thread is about the casual racism that occurs in hockey. Roll your eyes if you like, sing along and perpetuate stereotypes, too - or say it's offensive. Did you think those lyrics were ok dogs777??

I believe that it is our Captain who picks the warm-up music selections this season. I could be wrong on this but I doubt it.

He did this during the regular season

I didnít hear those lyrics cause I showed up later to the arena than normal and really donít listen to whatís being played otherwise but Iíd imagine they play a clean version like one thatís played on radio and Iím not rolling my eyes at the offensive stuff itís about the music stuff thatís been talked about and even covered by the fourgrounds guys

Akil Thomas made the pregame warmup playlist and mixed it together himself.

As much as possible, I try not to listen to the pre-game music, but, that is just me. We get involved in conversations with our friends in our section pre-game.

I do listen to the pre-game music to out of town games though.

Take of this what you wish, but our friends in our (home) section are not there to talk to.

That sidesteps the issue IDTW, are you ok with the lyrics? Do sanitized versions of racist songs belong in public arenas? Does Akil mixing the playlist make it ok for the rest of us? Or is anyone else uncomfortable with it? Like the original poster in this thread, I don't believe because it's "casual" it is any more acceptable.

Sanitized versions are fine sorry red but if people know what the song is chances are theyíve heard the version you are complaining about anyways (unsanitized version)
