    I’ll never stop being amused at the cow-town hijinks places like Nashville and St. Louis get up to whenever those no-good Blackhawks fans deign to come in to their arena, drink all their beer and drown out the home crowd. How’s that all worked out for you so far?

      Lol yea, bunch of babies “We heard from too many fans that said, ‘I don’t want to see this again. I’m not coming again if it’s like that,'” Henry said. “It wasn’t so much the team we were playing. It was, ‘I want to come to games where we dominate our own crowd,’ because that’s how it should be, and that’s how it it’s been for almost every game.”

      We don’t take kindly to your type around here

        You know they are pathetic when a stl fan is defending Chicago and the cheering in the comment section

          I think they are not going far enough to keep Chicago fans away. They should also only sell tickets to you if:
          a. you have 2 first names (and hyphens in last name does not count)
          b. you can prove that their might be incest somewhere in your family tree
          c. you think offsides is jumping before the ball is snapped.
          d. or two out of three.

          What a bunch of insecure mokes!!

    I don’t believe in cheering the anthem on the road. It’s fine for home games but unnecessary on the road. There are plenty of other ways to let them know you’re there.
    The ticket stuff is just dumb. You ought to be able to sell playoff tickets to your own fan base. If you can’t you deserve what you get.

      Agree completely, I do not like it at all when they cheer at other stadiums, even other Chicago stadiums (although the 9-11 game for the Bears home opener when Jim sang the anthem was amazing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7BQV93tFLs )

    I used to go to a few Hawks-Preds games a year. Came in from out of town, stayed in a hotel, drank a lot at the stadium, dropped a lot of money in their restaurants. Do you know who loves having the Hawks in town? All of the waitresses, hotel staff, and stadium vendors. But it finally got to the point where it became so ridiculously unreasonable to buy tickets and the ownership and their fans became so antagonistic that I take my games in in Washington, Raleigh, and wherever else sounds fun that year. I don’t miss Nashville one bit.

    I am generally against cheering the anthem on the road for all of the same reasons that I love it at the UC– it’s a tradition that is NOT about the team, it’s a patriotic expression. It’s not the tacky yelling of “O!” or “RED!”, it’s a celebration of the song itself. Doing it on the road to make a statement that Hawks fans are there are defeats that purpose.

    But I’m fine if anyone wants to do it in Nashville because fuck Nashville. Enjoy Hamilton, morons.
