Default Fix the Sound System for the National Anthem

How many times are we going to see the choirs that come to the games to sing the National Anthems not be heard.
This is the 4th or 5th time its happened. If there is a problem with microphone placement, then have someone from the arena that sets the mic in position and do a test before they sing. Its these kids big day at the arena and they can't be heard.

Personally I can only think of 1 or maybe 2 times where I didn't think the choir was loud enough. It's also on the kids to sing a bit louder too. You don't want the mic too close then have 1 kid screaming into it.

Wrong! Almost everytime there is a group of children singing the anthem, nobody hears it.

Yea, I kind of have to agree here. I don't recall thinking to myself "now these kids are adequately loud"! I've always thought they needed extra decibels... Didn't we discuss this a while back??

I'll agree w/ Verbs on this one... The crowd HAS TO START SINGING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM! Sorry for the caps, but it's plain ridiculous that an all Canadian crowd can't make our country and team proud... I'm quite surprised that over half way through the season we haven't picked up on this.

There's no national pride left my friend. People just dont care anymore.

(I DO THOUGh!) One of the last few remaining...

I remember back in the days of the St. Catharines Saints where *everyone* used to sing the anthem.

Maybe a email to the Burkes or someone will mention it to them , would be very good to be on national tv with the whole arena singing the anthem.
Shall we make so.
Im in and it's not embarrassing to sing people do it everyday.
