Would those in Riderville prefer if, in order to get in the Grey Cup frame of mind, play that Ukranian folk music they had during halftime of the '95 game in Regina in the Green & White dressing room? :lol:
I have to agree..it all starts with attitude..you call it rap I call it Gangster music..At least Play Queen were are the Champions or anything that might instill some passion in this lifeless team. DB's pet Gangster (KK) has to go..Did anyone notice when Keith scored his touchdown he was congradulated by what? 2 Players? great display of team unity....
Rap music is not to blame here..its attitude.. which was the point I was trying to make ,Tristan Clovis said it right..he tried playing Led Zep and was basically laughed at by the American players , you would think a unified team would allow any music to be played to satisfy NOT only a select group of players, last time I checked there are STILL Canadians on this team and this is the CFL..
But try telling that to Shivers and his band of misfits ..( Keith, Smith and all the other trouble makers he brought in)
I agree Dentor, it is the attitude. Back in my junior hockey days all we listened to in the dressing room was rap music. And just for the record every team I played on was compiled of 25 white guys. Now I'm not the biggest rap music fan in the world, but I will be the first to admit that there is the alot of songs of that genre that I really do like (as Charmillionaire's Ridin' Dirty starts playing on my windows media player). Anyway, my point is that listening to that kind of music before a game really does get a guy pumped up and ready to play, so in my opinion the music isn't an issue here.
One last comment, Bobby Cox (manager of the Atlanta Braves) has a rule about music in his clubhouse. Either everyone on the team agrees on the sort of music being played, or there is no music at all. Personally, I would much rather listen to music that isn't my favorite but I still don't mind, then no music at all.
