WI bans certain chants at HS sports events

Recommended Posts

In an email sent out to students in December, which was obtained by the Post-Crescent, the WIAA banned “chants by student sections directed at opponents and/or opponents’ supporters that are clearly intended to disrespect.”

ADVERTISING

 

 

The following words were reportedly included as examples:

 

• “Fundamentals”

• “Sieve”

• “We can’t hear you”

• “Air ball”

• “You can’t do that”

• “There’s a net there”

• “Scoreboard”

• “Season’s over” (during tournament play)

WIAA acceptable chant to officials: "Dear Sirs: We beg to differ, but thank you for your service to our game."

WIAA acceptable chant on FT attempt: "We cannot in good conscience pretend we want you to make this, but wish you good luck, nonetheless."

WIAA acceptable chant: "We hope for a positive outcome while fully realizing that the result is not a negative reflection upon our guest."

WIAA acceptable chant: "We note your attempt did not reach the rim, but only to alert the clock operator that a reset is unnecessary."

“Sieve”"

 

This was actually used as a sports chant in a high school game?

Yeah, I don't get that one.

The funny thing is I actually think there is room for this (went to a Missouri basketball game and a student group "the antlers" was chanting really ridiculous stuff that 19 year old dudes would think is funny but it is a family event), but they chose the things I would put in the "YOU CAN STILL SAY THIS" stuff.

 

But lots of vulgarity in kids these days, I tell ya.

Funniest thing I've ever heard a student section do. This was at MSU hockey games:

 

Students (at approx. 1:05 left in a period): Hey, Jerry, how much time?

PA Announcer (presumably named Jerry): One minute, one minute remaining in the period

Students: Thank you.

Supposedly some people do the same at the UC for Gene Honda during Hawks games. I've heard it once but when it happened a few people clapped for it.

Illinois club hockey fans do that, and once a season, the announcer actually says "You're welcome!"

 

I remember looking for the clock to reach 1:03

That sounds more awful than what's done at Bears game

 

PA: "There's a timeout"

Fans: "Where"

PA: "On the field"

Fans: "OHHHHH"

This reminds me of a line from a King of the Hill episode.

 

"That motion is denied, Mr. Hill. ... Now on to more important matters: My motion to add "fatty fatty boom-balatty" to the list of unacceptable hate speech."

This is done every period at Dubuque Fighting Saints of the USHL games.

At Rockford Icehogs games the announcer always says "You're welcome!".
