Western Chants and Arab Chants - Go Habs Go vs Sader Yada Yada Yada

I was at a shisha bar with friends yesterday, and an arab movie was playing. At one point, this mob starts chanting something like 'Sader is an honest man; Sader can not be bought for money' and it just had me thinking, 'you know, it's just not 'Go Habs Go'.
My reaction was, more or less, that it would have been so simple to just chant, like nosebleed-seats Habs fans, 'Saaa-der' 'Saaaaa-der'. Then I wondered if it's maybe the Habs fans who are getting it wrong...
Next game, I say we chant 'The Montreal Canadiens are the best team; their plus minus differential can not be equalled...'
