    I came to this thread to make a suggestion about YSA (i.e. how to get rid of it), but after reading that post, I'm just going to pack it in....

    No please, if you have ANY ideas on how to exterminate that piece of crap chant, you must share it.

    Good luck, unfortunately the attempts to make it 'this is sporting aroo, aroo, aroo' have just made it 'YSA aroo aroo aroo'

    Sorry, didn't think it'd be considered racist. Xenophobic at worst. It's just a play on the fact that Montreal is mainly French speaking.

    If you want to exterminate the YSA, it's probably best to just not say anything after the kick, and tell as many people in the Cauldron before the game not to say it. I had no idea something was being done to try to get rid of it, and during the game, it all just sounds like "blah blah blah aroo aroo aroo".

    Another thing that bugs me is the "Home of the Chiefs" at the end of the national anthem.

    Someone has probably already mentioned, but could we please just kill the drum roll leading up to the keeper's boot.

    I mean, its seems organizationally most of us dont like YSA (e.g. Sean's post at the beginning of last season), yet we ultimately choreograph it on match days. Or at least thats the drums' current practical effect. Makes no sense.

    I may have the genesis of ohhhhh+drums+YSA all criss-crossed and wrong here, but as a practical matter the drum roll is a reminder to yell "YSA," plus it helps YSA to be timed. Its enhancing it. Whether it was that way originally, matters not. In 2012, the drum roll and YSA are married to one another. Heck, the drum roll even reminds me to yell AAAAAAAAAhhh during "YSA." (One small part of my premise on the drums is based on the fact that I dont believe a lot of people really wait to see when exactly the GK kicks the darn ball -- people just wait to hear the drums. I am usually north of the goal, and I seldom look at the GK's boots as he strikes the ball. Im usually looking down field, to the outlets, or sometimes into my beer when I just want to drown it out).

    One way to attempt to kill off YSA (which was louder than ever last Saturday) would be start singing another song (any song!) as soon as the goal kick is given.

    Keep singing it really loud until the goal kick is done. This is really an uphill battle I know.

    Stupid question, but what do other supporter's groups yell/sing/cheer under the same conditions? I dislike mimicking other group chants. However, if it gets rid of YSA, I'd like to make the attempt.

    Many/Most groups are fighting a losing battle against YSA as well.

    Likely the same folks that wrote a letter condemning the use of "Welcome to the Blue Hell", haha.

    While nobody likes French Canadians, I think something more in line with "Blame Canada" as suggested earlier would be A) funnier, B) classier, and C) less likely to become a YSA type problem if applied in non IMFC games by less politically correct visitors to the Cauldron. It only takes one group of idiots on the level of the guy who threw the bobblehead to use that chant at a Mexican player for it to be a bit too much like a game in Russia for my liking.

    I love "Wings of a Sparrow" and don't really give a shit if it offends people. HOWEVER I can't stand it when it's sung lately with all three "below-oh-oh"s ... only the middle "below" should be emphasized that way. Why did we forget how to sing this one???

    To the tune of 'Love and Marriage':

    Kansas City
    Kansas City
    WE are Sporting effing Kansas City
    THIS I tell ya brother
    We play soccer like no other

    Kansas City
    Kansas City
    WE are Sporting effing Kansas City
    KINGS of Eastern Conference
    Gasp in awe of our tumescence

    (repeat)



    I just thought the last line was funny. It doesn't have to be that; there plenty of other rhymes, e.g. 'performance'.
