    The drumline could easily replace Ed for leading the chant. People would just need to get on board and actually participate.

    I do it happened right down from me.
    I sat in 319 at Shea right up from where it went into the stands.

    We were making light of it when the guy got hit
    But never expected it to lead to a fatality

    Some guy in Brooklyn nearly got decapitated
    Earlier this week when his helicopter crashed into him
    First thing I thought of when I heard was the incident at Shea

    You don't go to a football game thinking its gonna be your last one
    Guy was a Pats fan if I remember correctly

    Wat a shame to die like that

    All the noise before the kickoff, just to much for me.

    I'm a little older so I guess thats' half my problem.

    I don't watch too much college football, but the few times I have turned it on, there is none of that pumped in, loud, fake noise by the PA system.
    Basically it's just football with the school band and some cheerleaders, and a great crowd.
    But to emphasize, football is the main attraction - not secondary to everything else. Almost like time has passed the college game by and it's not over produced.

    So what I'm trying to say is I like the idea of the band.

    Just my two cents

    +1. I used to laugh at the Dolphins and their lame ass "That's a Miami Dolphins.... FIRST DOWN!" and now suddenly the Jets do it, too. Can only shake my head when I hear it on TV. The "air raid siren" is laughable as well. I guess when your crowd can't create a great atmosphere on their own, you have to resort to gimmicks.
