Official Eradication Strategy

The TRPS’ official strategy for getting rid of the “woo hoo” is to replace it with something else.  While we believe that silence during this portion of Tiger Rag is preferable, we realize that old habits die hard.  With this in mind we have decided to pursue the replacement strategy.  After taking surveys over the past year the overwhelming winner is the following: “FIGHT TIGERS, FIGHT TIGERS, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT”. The official replacement slogan fits right into where the “woo hoo” currently resides and is a much more “collegiate” sounding cheer.  Additionally it is yelled in other instances during games so it will be familiar to the people we are trying to convert.  Eventually we hope to phase this chant out of Tiger Rag as well but in the mean time you are all invited to to help us get rid of the abomination known as the “woo hoo” by using the TRPS replacement strategy.  If everyone does it instead of just being silent it will catch on just like the “woo hoo” did 12 years ago.

TRPS Twitter Strategy

The Tiger Rag Preservation Society has decided to employ a twitter communication strategy this following season.  It will be used in conjunction with the previously implemented Official Eradication Strategy that you can read about here. We will be using the official TRPS twitter account, twitter.com/banthewoohoo,to communicate the official strategy as well as provide real time reminders during games so that the fans at the games don’t forget to replace the “woo hoo” the next time Tiger Rag is played. The reminders will not only remind them to replace the woo hoo but to replace it with the official TRPS replacement slogan.  If everyone just replaces it with their own version it will end up as background noise…if they replace it with a single slogan, it will have a much bigger impact. With this strategy in mind please follow us on twitter and then tweet to your friends recommending that they follow as well.   If you want a shortened URL to this post you can use the following: http://bit.ly/trpstweet. Thanks and happy tweeting / facebooking, The TRPS
