They're used to having garbage on their lawns, why not on their ice?

I went to a game in Nashville in the 2008-09 season, if you can recall the game where we actually got destroyed 8-0. Even though the big loss, I enjoyed the atmosphere that game.

I can get why the goalie name you suck chant or the Tootoo whistles bother people. They can do much worse in terms of being disrespectful or whatever, but again I get if it gets to people. Funny thing related to that is down here there used to be a minor league team back in the late 90s early 2000s, I went to games there off/on before my college days and they'd razz the goalie with the exact same chant after he gave up a goal.

Anyways...I got no issue with that and as with fan experiences in general as long as nobody provokes me personally by getting in my face or throwing something at me or ruining the fan experiences of other people around by being too obnoxious, I don't care what you do.

What isn't right regarding this specifically is two things. The hockey doesn't belong in the South stereotype from in here (though that thankfully doesn't seem to come up much anymore), and like others have probably already touched on plenty in here, the head incident what people there now refer to as "Webering".

I thought things like "Tebowing" or "Linsanity" were beyond obnoxious, but at least those aren't referencing anything where a possibly severe injury occured. The deal with Weber that happened that fans are now mimicing, that isn't right.
