Raven's Crowd

some girl on twitter got RT from stewart and davis with her suggestion of going from one side of the stadium to the other with "keep pounding" similar to the way "tar-heels" is done in chapel hill. not sure some of the fans I saw in week 2 would participate, but I would.

Keenan Stadium is the only other stadium in North Carlin that is quieter than BOA. Not sure I'd copy them...

that bullsh*t chant was something I thought only existed in dreams.

Bravo, Baltimore.

Yeah, did you notice the deliberate pause between chants? It allowed better timing so it didn't get washed out with a fragmented cadence. Because it was well timed, it was much louder. And it was angry; you could hear the fury as opposed to college crowds who just giggle and think it's cool to yell "bullsh*t" in unison.

Oh yeah - no one breaks down crowd chants like me.

Dean Dome? Keenan got pretty loud when I was going to games with a girl back in 2000.

The stadium people were trying to get them to chant "defense" by doing the two drum beats.

They stopped the drum beat I think when the realized what the crowd was doing.

But then they started it back a minute later as if they said, "screw it, this is awesome".

For real. I think the wolf-pack side-to-side yell would be a better example. Carter-Finley sounds like a football stadium.

All this talk of corporate sponsors and what not. When do you cheer? On defense!!! Its hard to be insane when teams go up and down up and down. This city can be loud, the stadium has rocked and literally shaken before. A defense that hits someone in the mouth will shut away fans up and get people into the game. It is the players job to make people loud. If I do a shitty job at work no one applauds me. I do my part, but I understand the lack of enthusiam from others. The solution is simple. QUIT SHITTING THE BED

The Ravens crowd was rocking, no doubt.

I've been going to Panther games since day 1 and it does rock when there is something to get excited about. The games against the 49ers (when they were good), especially the MNF game, and playoff games were electric. If we're guilty of anything, it's being fair-weather fans. If the Panthers start winning consistently and get in the playoff chase, then BOA will rock again. There are plenty of teams that would be happy with our fanbase.

They've tried it. It failed. Fans were quiet as can be.
