Wednesday's Dump & Chase: It's Time to Dump Gary Glitter, Preds Fans

Don McPeak-US PRESSWIRE

Since there's no hockey to talk about, we might as well re-open a debate that's raged here previously. Should the Nashville Predators dump the "Hey" song, which is played after Tim McGraw during the goal celebrations, and at the ends of games at Bridgestone Arena? The creator of that song, twice-convicted child sex offender Gary Glitter, has been arrested once again over in the UK, bringing up the uncomfortable fact that the Preds still use his music as a key element of their game operations, while it has been shunned in most other outlets.

When this was brought up before, many readers here stood by tradition, and voted 2-to-1 in favor of keeping Glitter's music in the mix. Sorry folks, but I have to disagree with you here. There's no place for this guy's music at Preds games.

Will the Preds ever move away from playing Glitter's music at games? If something like this doesn't prompt them, I don't know what will.
