    Re: The Howl

    I liked to have a good time as much as the next guy and I consider it pretty annoying.

    There is no purpose to it other than to annoy. There is a time and place for letting loose and acting like an idiot, but the ballpark is not one of those places. Just my opinion.

    Now drop the Natty Lights and get off my lawn. I'm thirsty.

    Write to Phil Castellini. Tell him that the howling makes it less likely you will attend Reds games in the future. I bet a couple of hundred letters saying that could get it shut down.

    How are they going to shut it down?

    I don't like the howling but we need to realize alot of Reds fans out there like fans in general are complete morons. Just listen to to the "Banana Phone" clip WLW was playing yesterday and its perfect evidence to show alot of our fan base just isn't to terribly bright.

    Re: The Howl

    The Woo, in my opinion, is the most annoying thing I've ever heard/seen at a game. I'd take thunder sticks, vuvuzela's, or plastic clappers, over the woo.

    I thought it was funny the first two games.

    Re: The Howl

    When at a game and the wooing starts, tell whomever you're with -just loud enough for others to hear- "That's the moron mating call".

    Hopefully that interpretation will catch on.

    It only gets attention if people give it to them. I just ignore it and have a great experience at the park.

    For once I'm actually looking forward to idiot Cubs fans invading like locusts. Maybe they'll drown out the idiot Reds fans.

    I hate the howl, but whatever. Fads die, and this one will go away soon enough.

    Re: The Howl

    I personally hate it and for some reason I dislike it more on tv then when I hear it at the park. I guess usually at the park its drowning out some other idiot. For instance opening day my wife and I are sitting there and they show a tribute video with Ryan Freel in it. The two guys behind me start talking and one asks how he died....the other says leukemia. Now I don't usually feel the need to correct someone, but this guy keeps going on about how long he fought and how they were trying to get people set up for marrow transplants, and on and on. I finally had to turn around and told the first guy he committed suicide. The guys response "yeah I knew it was something like that". So I guess my point is while i'm at the yard I'm used to hearing stupid crap. But at home the whoo really drives me nuts.

    Phil has already publicly stated on the radio that he wishes it would stop.

    So let me get this straight, people want to attempt to stop people from making noise at a baseball game?

    Awesome.

    Yeah, annoying garbage noise that has nothing to do with the game.

    Noise is fine. Noise with the intention of being annoying detracts from the ballpark experience (and, because of the high-pitched and shrill nature of the noise, also detracts from the experience watching the game on TV).

    Seriously? It's not just "noise". It's an annoyance and it offends people. There's a big difference. Get a clue.
