Default Poor quality sports games chants

Having been to all manner of sports games here, I have realised that the Americans have got very poor chants.

They mainly utilize the word 'suck' and its applied in a very 'lame' way.

Like when the announcer reads out the names of the opposing ice hockey team, after each player, the crowd yells 'sucks', as in 'bob jones'.... 'sucks'

I've tried to educate some of my local with some old favourites like

'the referees a wanker'

and

'it's nice to know you're here, it's nice to know you're here, it's nice to know your here, NOW **** OFF HOME'

has anyone encountered any decent chants not including the word 'suck'?

Aha

Theres a particularly voiciferous section of nutters who watch my local NHL team, I've toyed with the idea of drafting a crib sheet, printing 150 copies and distributing to them.

with the appropriate instructions it could be funny. The downside could be my investment may be wasted as I'm not sure about their literacy....

So was Finidi George when he arrived at Ipswich Town many years ago to chants of:

"Finidi-oh, Finidi-oh,
He comes from Africa,
He drives a big tractor,"

Poor boy had probably never been on a tractor in his life.

What does "suck" actually mean, anyway?

About as much as they sing "Danny boy" in a dodgy accent to you.
