One question: how can anyone see that as anything but completely brainless (or drunken and brainless) behavior that distracts from the game?

Apparently Thom and Welsh both loved it.

It was "Bark in the Park" night. I agree it was annoying, but if it catches on and the fans can do a better job of "howling", then it might actually be kinda fun.

Those people last night sounded like dogs that had been hit by a car and dying.

It is obnoxious and stupid.

It's not enough that baseball will most likely be plagued with The Wave and Queen songs for the next millennium, now every night fans will get to relive the epiphany some idiot had on Bark at the Park night.

Can't be long before they're marketing it, though "Dawgpound" is already trademarked.

Can't people just have fun in an almost empty park? If hooting and howling is beneath baseball, then there's a whole lot more to complain about over the last 90 years.

I think the howling is funny, and we've won two in a row... cheer up.

The almost empty park was bad enough. If this catches on, to a sellout crowd? I could do without a "Cincinnati fans howl like animals, for no real reason" monicker during the playoffs.

Who knows where the next month plus leads us, but to date, it's been one unique and memorable experience to be a Reds fan. If the howling thing ends up being a couple of nights thing or a stupid staple from here on, I think it's great.

I showed my kids the video of it from MLB.com and they were, errr, howling with laughter.

If that makes me a purist, I guess I am.

If I honestly felt your opinion on this had to do with the purity of the game, I might buy this. Your posts are consistently negative and you just seem to be unable to enjoy anything that is fun about this season.

There were 10,000 people in the stands maybe, and almost as many dogs. We won, our magic number is 10 in mid-September. Just TRY to enjoy it.

BTW, quality embellishments?

So you would be OK with fans howling, non-stop, every game?

Can you not focus on the game with some noise? How do you handle it during playoffs when the park is crowded and really loud? The players are probably glad to have people there finally this season, and appreciate those who stayed late enough to make some noise. I dont like the wave or participate in it, but if others enjoy it and want to, who am I to judge them on that? Have fun Reds fans!!!

If they are there 5+ hours it is not up to me to determine but I would assume to some degree at least-they were there, we were not-so I give them credit. Just a few years ago the stadium would have been empty for the end of this game. Would like to hear some players reactions to it and see how they felt (I bet most enjoyed it, even if annoying)-thats all that matters in the big picture, the team.

Hello guys! I don't post much but have to chime in here. FS Ohio is 'planting' the mullet guy in each of the last two games. If you notice, it's the same outfit, same seating around him, his wife is doing the same thing and wearing the same thing, he's making the same emotions each time they show it.

FS Ohio is having fun with it. Too many people on the main board and this one think he's there each night. He's not. Just a loop.

The sentiment of the original post in this thread is, with all due respect, why I think a lot of people have turned away from baseball in recent years. No fun. Stuck in "tradition" and the "unwritten rules" of the game. Stale.

After seeing basically the same video for three nights, I have to agree with this. There's no way that dude wears the same shirt three nights in a row, with the same video of him hooting and howling. Kinda lame by FSN to try and make "mullet guy" a temporary mascot.

Get over it. Mute the game and turn on 700 wlw.

Also, If we took every person out of the stadium who wasn't 'into the game' every night, we wouldn't have a team in five years. I'd venture to guess that 1/4 of the people in that ballpark can't tell you the score without looking at the scoreboard. They still come, and they pay, and they drink beer and eat food. I welcome them with open arms, this team needs all the cash they can get.

I've been following the conversation about this over at the Old Red Guard section, not realizing this board's category structure and that there are two separate tiers for posting. I've been waiting to comment on it, but there was an issue with not being able to register, so I only just now was able to sign up.

Anyway, I was watching the original game where this first started happening on TV, on FOX Sports Ohio; the one that went 14 innings.

I find the idea mildly amusing on the whole - seems like reasonably good fun. On the TV broadcasts, they'd been trying to come up with a name for it by polling, but I"m not sure if they ever came to any solid decision.

As for a song, may I suggest "Barking at the Moon" from Disney's Bolt?

My concern is not so much that _I_ find it annoying and distracting, which I do, but that maybe the Reds players, especially the hitters, do too. They're trying to do one of the hardest things in sports to do -hit - and now they have this howling at totally unpredictable intervals overhead to try to ignore as they focus on the pitch? I don't see how it can help. It may bother pitchers too. I find it unnerving. I just wonder if any players have the same reaction to it. And to think that it could only bother the opposition is stupid. It's a new sound for all players to experience. I hope it ends, but announcers have given it too much praise, especially Thom Brennaman, and that's all it takes for some people to keep doing it. I just hope they actually enjoy making the sound and aren't doing it just to continue having it be mentioned on broadcasts or in the papers.

Thank you. Drunk 20-somethings screaming at random is never a good thing. It is annoying on television. I can only imagine how annoying it is live.

I liked it for the long inning game where it seemed to break out, as it was a loooong night for those that were there/stayed, but wish it wasn't catching on and would go away now.

Ahh too bad. The millionare baseball players don't like what paying fans have a right to do. Too bad players. Deal with it.

All Jim Day tweets about is how he hates the "woo"... not exactly a reliable source IMO

I'm surprised fights haven't broken out.

Seriously? If that were happening, there would be some people that needed to seriously lighten up.

They should only do this when the other team is batting.

this could come down to one of the biggest non issues in the history of issues. I blame Thom Brennaman for pointing it out all the dang time.

I don't have a strong opinion either way, but it's better than this:

It was funny in the 14 inning game where it started, and later when they were in Wrigley, but it's getting old. The "wooos" are starting in the 3rd-4th inning now.

The only time I think it should be used is simultaneously as the pitch is delivered to the opposing team in late innings.

I have to admit, I had to howl once at the beginning of game 5 just to say I did it. :D

I did not hear much of it in Game 5.

Was there much howling in Games 3 or 4?

I dont care for it personally. I mainly have to listen or watch games and it can get on a person's nerves. The game of baseball is entertaining enough to me without having to add something like that.
Have any of the Reds players ever made a statement on it as in like or dislike or doesnt matter ?

It is not unique - the pirates fanbase did it before cinci. It is terrible.

I posted this in the other forum also:

Someone had this sign on the "Reds LIVE" pre-game show coming back from a commercial break on TV a few minutes ago. Sorry for the not so good picture.

I really wish they would start throwing these idiots out. Its pointless and it does nothing to add to the environment. I'd rather have the peanut guy sit beside me and yell all night. A very small percentage of people participate in this and enjoy it. They know its annoying and that's why they continue to do it. It annoys the players as well. So why would you continue to do something that's going to annoy your fellow fans and the team you're suppose to be cheering for? They need thrown out with no refund. Lets get a petition going or something. If you can get tossed for heckling you should be able to get tossed for this.
