    If you attend the games, do you do "the chop" with the rest of the stadium?

    Personally, I can't bring myself to do it. I know a couple of Gator fans that partake at Braves games. I can't help but to judge them (and everyone else doing it).

    I only do it holding one of their foam tomahawks. If I don't have one, I don't do it. I'm more concerned about no postseason series wins since 2000 than about the chop.

    Braves fan here who would suffer an arm injury if he ever did the Chop. Stupid tradition stolen from the Noles. What could possibly be cool if it is stolen from a Burger King store?

    I do it fairly often but not each time because they play the music a lot and frankly my arms get tired....never bothered me as far as being a Gator fan and feeling like I am doing the FSU chop...because it's not an FSU game, or even a football game, or a college game :)....as I have explained before my I grew up in the 90s when the Braves ruled MLB and before the Rays and Marlins were around...while I hope the Marlins get better again and the Rays can win a WS, my first love is and always will be the Braves...

    That is how I see it.

    ONE time, and one time only I had the very faint thought to engage, the feeling quickly left.

    No I can't do it, It causes my gag reflex to start, when I even start to hear the music it makes me want to vomit violently. Other than that I love my braves as much as my gators.

    I went to a braves game once while visiting my mom in Alabama for my birthday. Got drunk, met some chick in the box I snuck in, hit it, and never would partake in their stupid "chop". Go rays!

    I went to a KC Chiefs game this year and their fans were doing it too. I stood there with my arms crossed, wasn't going to do it.
