If you didn’t hear, the New York Islanders debuted a new MTA Subway inspired goal horn on Monday Night at Barclays Center and if you heard it, you would know it made the roll out of the black third jerseys seem like a rousing success.

Listen, there’s change and then there is change for change sake. In a year of such massive transition for Islanders fans, Barclays Center is marketing the concept of “Tradition Has A New Home” but time and time again it feels like suits in a board room, none of which have ties to the Islanders are trying to create a new experience for fans that are still grasping on to what they left behind. Brett Yormark has admitted to being swayed by the fans before, maybe the latest outpouring of disgust will have him reverse the latest failed attempt of trying to fix something that isn’t broken.
You know that scene in Dumb and Dumber when they ask if you wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world? That’s the #Isles goal horn. — IslesBlog (@IslesBlog) September 29, 2015
That goal horn is horrendous. It sounds like a castrated FIAT. #Isles

The Islanders may have lost Party City as a sponsor, but not before cleaning out all their New Years noisemakers for that goal horn. — Dan Saraceni (@cultureoflosing) September 29, 2015
