    Re: Seven Nation Army



    This TMZ.com article about the bullshit chant is my absolute favorite. It's really admiring of the crowd's clarity. Also really liked this bit from Kevin Byrne:

    A rep for the Ravens -- Senior Vice President of Public and Community Relations Kevin Byrne -- tells TMZ ... "We’re certainly aware of it. Normally, our crowd is one of the most enthusiastic and respectful home audiences in all of sports.”
    A subsequent TMZ article says the FCC isn't going to fine anybody. I went visiting some other teams' forums, and found folks looking to take this vocal expression re: the replacement refs to an NFL stadium near them as these guys bungle their way through their home team's game. I don't think that's a great idea. Baltimore caught 'em off guard, but they'll start flagging the home team for unsportsmanlike conduct if NFL fans start making a movement out of this.

    they play the first few notes of the seven nation army song after big defensive plays thats why the crowd does it. they did it for the 1st game also. I like it this way better then playing the entire song because the entire crowd wont do it for the whole song but if its just for a few seconds they can get more people to do it and it sounds louder

    Re: Seven Nation Army

    seven nation didn't come over the PA at all in week 1, though the crowd chanted it anyway. the first time the crowd chanted it in week 3 was totally spontaneous. it was a little after that when it came over the PA. i wonder if it was planned or if the PA guy played it in response to the crowd? either way, it looks like its here to stay for a while.

    (Sory for hanking and old thread)

    I know that there may be (bulls^&t NFL) rules against it. Why can't the band start and or back-up the 7 Nation Army chant - that would be truly loud!!!!!!!!!!

    The crowd appeared to be oblivious to the chant at the Browns game. Not loud or long; most fans where we sat just kept talking. Perhaps the chant has already run its course in Baltimore.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    they didnt play the entire song in week 1 but they did play part of it after big plays to get the crowd doing it

    Re: Seven Nation Army

    I didn't notice a particularly loud BS chant on Thursday. There was a smattering, but nothing like from Sunday.

    What really disappointed me was the new UA nonsense. Such a shame. "I Will" was / is iconic and it always worked. This new promotion feels very forced and not a all catchy.

    BTW, I noticed that the Chain Gang is gone. Does anyone know the story? Not a very reliable source, but the dude behind us claimed that he knew one of the guys and they lost their PSL's.

    No more chain gang is a good thing, IMO. Now that we have an offense (and a fast tempo one at that), I don't think they're going to be too happy about a chant right about the time they are trying to call the next play or two.
