How come we never hear any chanting or singing in the NRL? The atmosphere of the NRL is nothing compared to the ESL with all the singing and chanting. All the singing about the players they hate or the players they love so much they make a chant about them. There’s none of that in the NRL and it would be nice to have it. And no, chanting “Tigers” while banging on the seats doesn’t count.
I don’t follow the soccer
But years ago a good friend talked me into going to some newcastle jets games
I noticed as you stated the atmosphere at the games
The other thing I noticed is that the fans creating all the atmosphere weren’t actually watching the game
With so little action and scoring opportunities in the game i came to the conclusion that the atmosphere they were creating was just to amuse themselves
When a goal was actually scored i believe very few of them actually saw it yet still rejoiced it
The NRL at the very least has lots of action to keep fans entertained
went to the scg the day steve Waugh scored a century and it was an ashes test.
the barmy army were there and for the first hour it was fun but by 4,00 it was only
fun for them.
singing and chanting add atmosphere but is it entertaining for everyone.i think no.
I enjoy the barmy army. Went to the Ashes series in 2010-11 and Johnson was having a shocker and the songs they were singing about him were hilarious. It wasn’t so much fun for them on the next tour as we all remember though.
