I wanted our drumming to help us and be a kind of aid, but in actuality I've found them to be more like AIDS.

Nothing like an aggressive version of 'A Sprinkling of Clouds' to get you ready for the 2nd half!!

I hate them. Also, my entire family not only thought they were annoying but also believed the Galaxians had taken over the entire section.

I think that the squad sounds better when they chant without drums. Our 'beautiful voices' are resonant through the stadium rather than the niose of the drums. (We would sound better for TV, too) Also, having beat on them myself, they are a distraction from what is going on on the field. Turning around to figure what the hell Tommy is doing on the drums and missing a goal is not fun. Fuck 'em.

A few drums, well played, in support of the some of the chants is OK

Bad drumming is bad

Drunk drumming is bad drumming so it is bad.

I don't like drums, my opinion. I've gotten too many headaches this year, don't like the sound. feel voices sound better.

I brought a couple friends to a game a month or so ago. All told me they had a good time, but if they ever considered coming back they'd have to sit/stand far away from the drums.

I say nay. nothing personal.

I think that the drums highlight our shortcomings as far as timing goes and keep others from understanding our chants, so I say FUCK THEM.

i think the drumming adds and helps to our chants and gets everyones attention. the only things thats makes the drumming bad is when the galaxians are there trying to drum as well!!

I voted Yay.

Drums don't kill people. Bad Drummers kill people.

I think our drummers have done a pretty good job overall. If we had and knew an Acutal Assortment Of Songs... then the drums would be less of an issue for people, because the drums would be used less and the songs used more. Songs, combined with Chants, sprinkled with Drums.

example:
Songs (or portions of) we all should know... (altered with a Galaxy slant)... to sing every 10 minutes starting at kick-off of each half...


1. America the Beautiful
2. America
3. This Land is Your Land
4. God Bless America
5. You’re a Grand Old Flag
6. Glory, Glory Hallelujah
7. When the Yanks Go Marching In
8. Star Spangled Banner
