Did you know Chicago chants "DETROIT SUCKS" when the Hawks are playing other teams? The Detroit Red Wings are not even in the building, why would they do this?

QUOTE
9. Don't chant "Detroit Sucks" if the Wings aren't in the building : This was totally acceptable when the Hawks were awful. Now that they're contenders, save the vitriol for the Wings. It makes us as a fan base look jealous and inadequate.

Personally, I think it's really classless to chance "insert.name.here sucks" chants no matter what teams are playing. I would never participate in this *if* it sparked at the Joe. Though I can't recollect "sucks" chants happening at the Joe....

I agree about the "___ Sucks" chants. I wish American sports had more creative chants. But seriously, Chicago just has issues. That guy said it's not okay anymore now that they don't suck? It wasn't okay when they sucked, either. Regardless of their skill level it still makes the fans look like jealous kids with an inferiority complex.

But hey, the Central Division (St. Louis and Chicago especially) have really bizarre obsessions with the Wings.

Obviously its jealousy. Theyve been sucking our exhaust fumes for 15 years.

they're far from the only team to do that.

I can think of instances where the stars and that avs have done it over the years as well.

I agree with VM about the "jealous kids with inferiority complexes." Good description.

And meanwhile, the Avs' fans even spend money on t-shirts saying "Detroit Sucks" - which only serves to shout to the hockey world about their inferiority complex. That's the idiocy of it.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

The best part of the, "Detroit sucks," chant is yelling back, "Count our cups!"

Hawk fans are just mad because Chicago is "Little Detroit" with all the Detroit Tigers & Wings fans walking the streets as well the many Detroit bars all around the neighborhoods.

Devils fans do it too at The Rock, except with "New York sucks!" chants.

That's ridiculous if it's true. Everything about their fanbase and rituals is so kitschy. They try to call it tradition but the only constant tradition with the Blackhawks is losing. Of all their "traditions", the screaming during the national anthem, "Detroit Sucks", etc., Chelsea Dagger is the worst, That song totally sucks, and they need to fire their in house DJ for coming up with that bulls***.

Hey, fellas. They probably chanted b/c the arena posted scores from other games including the red wings. I've seen this happen a million times at Nationwide Arena whether or not the wings win or lose. If Detroit is mentioned by the arena announcer the chant begins immediately. I think it's funny, they're totally jealous and will take a stab at the best team in the last 20 years whenever they can because other teams would kill to be as successful. So come on lighten up, it has nothing to do with "class." it's a good ribbing is all.

lol @ everyone taking this seriously

They're just goofy chants in light of the rivalries throughout the league. I always just considered them a part of their tradition just like any other chant. But leave it to people on this board to get butthurt over it. rolleyes.gif

I used to be the biggest critic of the Joe's music, but I've learned to just deal with it. I'm so used to the same songs that I can just ignore it now. At least they don't play the same song after every goal.

Seconded. While Detroit 1-ups them in hockey right now, they could being saying far, FAR WORSE things. I can find 1000 different things more important to get worked up about instead of this.

Eh we are a few weeks away from displacing them and taking our rightful spot on top of the division...we will see who sucks then.

Season record:

Wings 1-0-0

you can beat the rest of 'em but until you win a series I'm okay.

Wings won season series last year...Wings won playoff series last year.

Wings Winning season series through 1 this year.

Go WINGS!!!

I really can't stand this... Colorado fans are probably the worst too... this is really classless. This is something that has never happened at a Wings game, or any other Detroit sporting event of my memory... I guess people in Detroit are just above that. Colorado does it during the pregame, even before the national anthem. It is truely classless... if you don't like the Red Wings, then beat us... don't chant "Detroit Sucks" like a bunch of *******, actually grow some balls and beat us.

my two cents.
