Singing and Chanting in the NRL

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. 😆

You need more than 20 people sitting close to each other. That’s NRL out!

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

The noise is bad enough with the stupid songs they play over the loudspeakers during the game. Can hardly hear the person next to you speaking.

You wouldn’t hear fans singing I don’t think.

The NRL have sapped all excitiement and spontaniety out of the game…you cant cheer when a player goes over the tryline cause 9/10 times it goes to the VR…and the rest of the game is very very predictable…no punchups anymore to fire up the fans…its zzzz

I’m forever blowing bubbles……

Lame as.

1 for my bucket list is watching Rugby at Cardiff Arms Park, with 70,000 Welsh singing along.

I’m not big on the chanting thing, I prefer to focus on the game plus I prefer the players to be able to hear sledges. That’s one of the best things about Leichhardt…

The ESL ain’t worth watching as there is about 30 seconds of action all game
So to be entertained the rest of the game they start a Sing along

They could do it during a Rorters Melbourne game

People sing and chant at the soccer because there’s nothing else to do.
In Rugby League there’s a game to watch.

yeah a game to watch, refs to yell out and players to cheer

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.

Rugby League has become that homogenised that singing will probably need to be brought in to keep the punters interested.

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.
