Tomahawk Chop Etiquette

 

We've all witnessed it haven't we? Braves up 2-1 in the 3rd inning, we hear it. Braves up by 5 in the 7th against the Mets and Gee just gave up a single to Tommy Hanson after walking Alex on four pitches...we hear it. If you don't know by now, I'm talking about the Chop. Yes, it has become devalued because they play the hell out of it...everytime a Brave gets on base, you know that it's coming. I've seen them overdo it so much that by the 7th inning entire sections are ignoring it (sore arm maybe). The Chop & Chant should be the ultimate rallying cry for the team in my opinion. There's no need to rally when you're already ahead and the chant should not be heard if the Bravos are down by at least 3 or 4 (in the bottom of the 9th with 2 outs and their pitcher just walked a Brave. Whoever's playing that lacks discernment as to when to start the chant (I envision some Paris Hilton looking chick in there). Anyway, this is chant etiquette. When should it be broken out and why don't Braves fans have chants directed towards the opposition? That would really liven Turner Field up (I'll be down for the playoffs).
