I'm not surprised that some players might like it.
My position regarding the WOOOOO is a nuanced one which might shed some light on one of the main reasons why some players and fans like it and some players and fans don't.
Here's my official position:
1) as a diehard Reds fan living in San Jose California and therefore confined primarily to watching games on television, I find the WOOOOO "mildly amusing, sometimes irritating, but generally fun
" as a television viewer
2) making a strongly educated guess — based on my past attendance at many sporting events – I would expect to find the WOOOOO somewhat less amusing, somewhat more irritating, but still fairly fun
as a fan attending a game at GABP.
3) making another educated guess — based again on my past attendance at many sporting events and – I would expect to find the WOOOOOOO totally unamusing, highly irritating, and no fun at all
if some Yahoo seated directly behind me did it several times an inning all game long
So anyway, I'm sure some of the disagreement depends on one's natural bent toward loud and goofy behavior, but I also think one's opinion is also dependent one's the proximity to the phenomena (the farther away the better) and the frequency of the phenomena (occasional= OK ; constant= loathsome).
Anyway, that's my 10 cents
