Ric Flair voted for himself as a write-in candidate in the presidential election and distinguished his campaign with the hashtag #MakeAmericaWoooooAgain.

Lots of pro teams use Flair's signature "Woooo!" yell as a way of getting fired up. Like the ...

Atlanta Falcons ...


... and Indianapolis Colts ...


... and San Francisco 49ers ...

... and Carolina Panthers ...

But some members of the Philadelphia Flyers aren't so fond of the call. Flyers rookie Travis Konecny unleashed a big "Woooo!" during a game against the Flames this week, and the Philly fans, well versed in booing, quickly took to wooing.

That sounds like a nice organic development, which is hard to create given the scripted nature of in-game entertainment in arenas these days. But Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports that there has been a backlash:

Konecny says the incessant Ric Flair chants from fans at the Wells Fargo Center have become distracting.

Veteran Flyer Jakub Voracek was very vocal in his dislike for it.

"It's childish and annoying and it's really starting to piss me off," Voracek said. "The first period they are (bleeping) wooing. What are you? (Bleeping) 10 years old?"

Panaccio also got Flyers coach Dave Hakstol to weigh in on the wooing: "Let's hope it's a short-lived fad."

Unfortunately for the Flyers, Flair is still going strong. He is 67, but several media outlets reported Tuesday that Flair just signed a new WWE contract, which means we should be getting more moments like this:
