Default NEW FAN INITIATIVE

Check this out guys.

Puts any North American city to shame.
If we can get some passion like this during our games (minus the flares), what team would enjoy playing here???

Just play half as many games in a season and serve cheap beer at the ACC - we could have that kind of crowd no problem.

this is nothing new. European sports support and fan 'role' is hugely different than how it is over here. It's also like this for pretty much all team sports in Europe. the differences stem down to the target audiences. North American sports is more about making a family friendly atmosphere. Same can't be said for arenas or stadiums in Europe.

Fancylad is absolutely right about it, here in Europe sports are fan oriented, not for families.
But the results are amazing, just check THIS

or worse, ya know, depending on whether you think it's cool to throw batteries and coins at players and get into drunken brawls with opposing fans.

True. But that's not that different from Leafs fans/the media in Toronto for all sports. It's just done verbally and mentally. Notice the ever receding hairline of Ron Wilson?

I prefer boring fans to violent and crazy ones. There should be a middle point. Likes Estudiantes' people, Best fans in the world!

Put an exciting team on the floor and you will get excitement out of the fans.

Leaf fans are lemmings. Raptor fans are more intelligent.

We cheer when there is something to cheer about.
