Dumb fans, dumber chants

first_imgIt’s that time of year again at Camp Randall.Yes, it’s college football season, but with it comes moronic fans and their equally stupid chants.Now don’t get me wrong, I love college football and its fan atmosphere, but there are some people who fill the stands who are as annoying as Tony Kornheiser on ESPN Monday Night Football.Sure, there are some classics such as those profanity-laced ones following “The Hey Song” and “Swingtown,” but the bad far outweighs the good.Several chants aren’t as bad considering they are adding on to pre-existing ones, but they just don’t make sense. Take the “We Want More” chant, for example. Everyone in the student section thinks it’s really clever and giggles when they add “beer” to the end of it, but just think about it for once — beer isn’t served in any college football stadium in the nation, shouldn’t it be “We Want Beer” instead?Speaking of beer, the excuse every student has when asked why Camp Randall can’t fill sections J through P before kick-off is pregame partying. Nothing against it, but if you’re so hardcore, why don’t you just wake up a few hours earlier?UW’s lazy fans have made television broadcasts reluctant to show the Camp’s student section and have held it back for years. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit ripped student Badger fans a couple years ago and he was pretty much right on — get a clue and watch the game.The worst chants by far, though, are the ones people try to make up themselves. Sorry, you so-called super fans, but they usually don’t make sense whatsoever. During Saturday’s rather boring game against Western Illinois, some bozo emphatically tried to ignite his own chants. Boy, were they terrible. “Who got the first down? We got the first down! Who got the completion? We got the completion!” Geez … go back to Minnesota, home of the worst chants in the nation, where Gopher fans can’t even finish shouting the initials to their state in a unison chorus.But as frustrated as I was with the idiotic chants, Camp Randall’s faithful redeemed themselves when this goofball tried bringing them to a new all-time low. Everyone in my section wanted this guy to shut up, so the next time he said something, the person next to me started a chant of his own in response.”Who’s the idiot? You’re the idiot!” Ah, pure genius — it set off an onslaught of the “A-hole” chant for about the rest of the quarter. I guess I don’t really hate all chants after all. However, they’re just the beginning to the stupidity.When other college football scores across the country are shown on the big screen, I’ve never understood why everyone boos the Big Ten teams during non-conference play. Um, hello, you want Big Ten teams to win outside of the conference so a potential Badger victory will look better down the road. It’s just a little thing called RPI.Then there are the home-made signs. Fortunately, Camp Randall doesn’t have a big problem with this, but it’s so painful watching a game at home only to have a cut to someone and their dim-witted sign. Good job, you found a way to put some unrelated phrase into the TV station’s logo — haven’t seen that one before. I don’t mean to diss the kids on this one because if you’re over the age of 12, you shouldn’t be wasting your time making signs anyway.And don’t even get me started on face and body painting or the wave.At least college football isn’t as bad as basketball. I’m already dreading the day of having to hear the infamous airball mantra, even five minutes after the fact. Or those people who scream during a free throw and think a miss is all because of them, even after doing it unsuccessfully countless times beforehand.Maybe I’ve just been spoiled from sitting on press row the past couple of years and have missed out on this chanting obsession because I just don’t get it. Either way, I know I can expect a large “A-hole” chant heading my way the next time I step foot in the student section — that’s fine, I’ll still be shaking my head.Send all your new chant ideas and hate mail to [email protected]last_img read more

Why does the Accra Stadium pitch look like a yam patch?

first_imgOn the surface and from a distance, it looks green. But even then, it looks like a giant fork has been used to scrape sections off it.And Asamoah Gyan is not happy with the state of Ghana’s national stadium with days to their first 2017 Afcon qualifier. “The pitch was not good enough. It made even ball control very difficult,” he said  “But I believe our target was met and we’re happy to go into the main encounter against Mauritius in good spirit.” The Black Stars defeated Togo 1-0 in a friendly on Monday. Bernard Mensah, on his debut, scored a 30-yard goal in a game where Mubarak Wakaso was sent off. But the pitch resembled a spruced potato patch.  ‘Cash came late’ “We only got funding to buy the fertilizer and other things on Friday,” said Frank Boahene, who is in charge of maintaining the pitch, which had almost collapsed a month ago (pictured).”We took the water level and all only in the last few days. I admit the optimal thing would have been to start a few weeks ago.”Speaking to Joy Sports Track, Boahene expressed optimism that by kickoff on Sunday, the facility will be in even better condition for the qualifier. However, he was quick to urge authorities to be more pro-active in getting funding on time for such important national engagements. Another potential problem that could affect the surface is rain –  Ghana’s capital has seen a lot of it in the past week. 150 people died in flooding and fire related disasters last Wednesday.  “We are working on all such potential situations so that the ground can take an appreciable amount of water on the day,” the contractor assured. Gyan’s fears may be founded also the fact that apart from the daily training sessions ahead of the qualifier, the local top flight is slated to have a big game on Saturday between Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics.’Owners can’t cope’The National Sports Authority has notoriously laboured to maintain not just the pitch but the entire stadium. The problem has mostly been due to a lack of access to needed funding.Joy Sports checks showed that the washrooms are in a poor state, while the electronic scoreboard does not work altogether. Officials, who did not want to be quoted, said everything possible is being done to get all the facilities up to speed before this weekend’s qualifier. –Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more
