Dr. Mike Stevenson, Executive Associate Director of Athletics, will be holding a forum at 6pm this Tuesday to discuss NCAA and University concerns with Michigan’s hockey cheers. The Michigan Student Assembly is hosting this session in the hopes that Students and the University can agree on a solution that will be favorable to each party. FREE FOOD WILL BE SERVED.
I suggest the following solution: don’t want your kids hearing the word “douchebag”? Don’t take them to hockey games. The vulgarity is part of the atmosphere, and every Daily interview of a hockey player ever run mentions the volume of the crowd as a key factor in the home ice advantage.
The student portion of the hockey crowd won’t tolerate any solution that involves eliminating the cheers, and I have to imagine there are enough people interested in purchasing season tickets who don’t mind the cheers (or like the atmosphere they help create) that Yost will still be full. Therefore, “Don’t like it? Don’t go.” can very well be considered a solution favorable to all.
