Stop the Scripted Cheering

From Michael Gluskin at The News-Dispatch,

Fans attending a playoff game, where the stakes are always high, shouldn’t have to be told how to dress or what to say during the course of a game. They should understand that their attire, and cheering especially, could help encourage their favorite team to victory.

Instead, many of these recent playoff games seem to be played in a scripted environment. When a crowd isn’t being told what to shout by a JumboTron, the group is often awkwardly silent. This is unfortunate because the beauty of sports is that it’s entirely unscripted and anything can happen.
