General Warriors Chant Helping Or Hurting

Hi this is my first thread so go nuts.

Is the "warriors, clap clap clap, warriors clap clap clap" chant helping when we are on the opposition try line, or does it help the defense get fired up?

My opinion from what I've seen with the Warriors and from origin 2 in Brisbane is that it puts off the attacking team whether the chant is for them or against them. It might have an unnerving effect on all the players on the field or something like that? Which makes it easy to bar up on D, but hard to make good sharp passes etc... when attacking.

I've also heard on the replays from Sunday vs the Storm a slow war cry type chant, of Waaaaarrioooooor in slowmo, with no clapping or banging hoardings, followed by some very sharp plays from Johnson and TL. I'm thinking this has a relaxing effect on the players and thus better chip kicks or spot passes etc.etc.... and less aggression from the opposition D.

Am I nuts or is this whats been happening out there? Cause the crowd is a powerful force of nature after all......

Wigan have some great chants and they are all to different Tempo , I don't think any chant hurts the team as long as it's distinguishable from the opposition therefore Warriors clap clap clap clap is useless at away games sometimes.

The Tigers game is case and point , you couldn't tell if it was a Warrior chant or Tiger chant until the Warrior fans switched to ' lets go Warriors ...lets go "

That one is a goody.

The only sound that harms this team is all the pin dropping when they are behind on the score board or under the pump at MT SMART imo

Not sure what it does to the players, you'll have to get in ones ear, but I know that it amps me up and makes attending games more enjoyable. I'll never stop chanting!!!

The Music during the game thread from the DJ is a timely reminder that some good chants or songs at our ground would be choice.

I liked the one time they played the Warriors come out to playeeeaaayyy at one of the NRL games before the team came out it's a cult classic.

That bottle rattling scene from the seventies cult classic the Warriors is haunting.

Here's an idea along those lines.

Glass bottles are a no go so......

Chant WAR , WAR ,WAR , WAR , WAR, WAR, WAR, WAR, WAR, ( 8x = four four beat )

WARRIORS ARE HERE TO PLAYEEAYY

WAR WAR WAR WAR WAR WAR WAR WAR

WARIORS ARE HERE TO PLAYEEEAYYY


For all you kids who wonder what the hell I'm on about heres a scene from the film

[DOUBLEPOST=1378424237][/DOUBLEPOST]If that's too old school the Golden State Warriors have a Song but the Chorus is a bit lame imo

If they're any kind of professionals then the crowd making noise shouldn't be a factor.

Get real! Ever heard of home ground advantage? The roar of the crowd can make a huge difference to their game, professionals or otherwise. That extra rush of adrenaline they get keeps them going that much longer, that much harder...

How come every team, in all of sport, considers playing at home to be an advantage...

The players take the home crowd with them when the travel as well...

The central problem with any chant is when the PA announcer has to rark up the crowd to start one.

That's a sure-fire sign that there's no chanting because the crowd don't think it's deserved/it's going to make any difference.

Yes I have heard of home ground advantage, thank you.

Now, have you ever heard of context? The original poster observed that the chants seem to have a negative effect on the attacking team and suggested the chanting could possibly unnerve them.

My response was simple, if they're professionals this shouldn't be a factor. Crowd noise is not an excuse for failing to execute.
