What was up with the Sounders recording/ripoff chant?

Discuss any and all sports-related topics. From the College Sports to Baseball and everything in between. RATING: PG-13
  • If you were at the game Thursday you surely noticed a new chant. And if you also go to Sounders games you surely recognized it.

    I'm talking of course about the "SEATTLE!" chant being blasted on the PA, which was obviously a recording of the ECS from a Sounders game. I instinctively shouted "SOUNDERS!" on the first prompt each time.

    Anyway, I love them both, but I was not digging the blatant copying and use of the recording of Sounders fans for a seahawks chant. That felt pretty lame and forced

  • Heard that over the tv, didn't realize it was coming from the speakers. To me football noise should be organic and natural, leave the chants and organized songs to soccer.

  • Exactly. We don't need a TV screen to tell us when and how to get loud. If anybody here got named to that fan advisory council, tell them to drop that, would you?

    Oh, and a little less volume on the opening montage right before the introduction would be a welcome change, too.

  • My whole section was not enthused to put it politely. Hopefully that was the only time I'll hear that outside of a Sounders game.

  • Well in the old days in the Kingdome we used to get the Seattle on one side of the stadium and then Seahawks on the other a lot when we had Bill the Beerman. So who ripped off from who?

  • Yeah, I'll pass on the creepy authoritarian hive-mind organized chants and hand signals.
