    Re: “Dixieland Delight” Has Been Set Free

    One week and then it will get pulled again and I'm okay with that. Maybe I'm old and in the minority, but it's just inappropriate.

    This is why youth is for the young. As we get older we forget how to really LIVE.
    I think you probably have the best post of the thread. I think folks want to seriously believe there is this huge difference between Alabama and the Pittsburgh Steelers, but aside from pay for play and the students there really isn't. The MDB is almost non existent, and just an que to go to bathroom for most. Most of the stadium energy is driven by piped music and Cochran ques.

    Funny how things are. I honestly think someone somewhere else said the best compromise is for the PA announcer or the Beagle cheerleader to yell "Beat" when it comes to the part of "bad word Auburn". That way it is more drowned out, but yet you still have the song.

    Same thing for Rammer Jammer. Folks have tried to stop us from singing it for years.
    Yeah and the students still do the chant in acappella and its more noticeable.

    They look forward to it, and if they didn't then you wouldn't have the Sabans and football players trying to get it back.

    For all of those wanting the students to stay this is what it was inevitably going to come to. If you want BDS loud then you need the students or else you have a stadium mostly filled with radio listening, sitting with blankets, and nacho eating older Tide Priders.

    Yep - young people are unfettered in their enthusiasm. They don't worry about the guy who wants to sit during the whole game sitting behind them. They stand and they cheer and they have fun. When the game is no longer fun, they leave.

    They won't stay just for this, but they will stay if there are enough things like this happening throughout the game. Keep the students engaged, especially during the frequent and long TV timeouts.

    Bingo. If you want the students to stay, you have to cater to them. It is what it is.

    And while I'm not one to use foul language and preferred a time when people were more cautious about their use of it around others, this is who we are now as a society. You really can't expect to go anywhere anymore and not hear someone cursing, so if it bothers you that badly, enjoy the game from the comfort of your home on your big screen.

    I agree.

    I have my issues with this, but it’s the price you pay when you have such of an age divide between students and season ticket holders but still want a very loud stadium. Personally I don’t like the song for other reasons such as it being about Tennessee (did I ever mention I hate Tennessee). But at some point you have to give them something, and if this is what it takes to put butts in aisles then so be it.

    Kind of like Sweet Home Alabama not being a positive song about the state.

    People aren't excited for the song only because they want to hear the music.

    Now there’s a debated topic for another board heh heh


    But neither “Born in the USA” by Springsteen or “Independence Day” by Martina McBride are patriotic anthems, either. In fact, both are about abuse (veterans in one, children in the other).

    It’s neither overly positive or negative, but I think a good chunk of the state has identified with it.

    Re: “Dixieland Delight” Has Been Set Free

    I can see it either way, but I think the idea that, “Hey, we’re up by 30 and I want to leave but I’ll stay just to shout the F word” is a little ridiculous, too.

    In all honesty, how many folks are on their phones the entire game? And that’s not only young folks. If I use my phone during a Bama game it’s usually for pictures, and I usually use my higher grade camcorder for that anyway.

    That’s why I’m not too hard on the students leaving. Some of the fans physically there aren’t even “there”.


    And also - I’ve been there when they’ve played “Wagon Wheel” by Darius Rucker, Which May be veiled but is pretty risqué in content as well.
