Mike Ilitch has more than enough money to pay a $10k fine at least once per game to let Al twirl an octopi over his head to get the crowd going...I think it would be well worth it in the long run. Thoughts?

I think Al should swing it and mr. Moneybags should NOT pay the fines... but instead place a little note in the envelope that says "hey Mr. Bettman! EFF OFF!"

Just one chance is all i ever wanted...just one time i'd like to win the game...from now on i'll take the chance if i can have it...just one just one

#881. I thought it'd be a higher count..

I like the idea of strapping a fake 10K check to the octopi from now on. With the check signed FU Bettman. biggrin.gif
thanks offsides!

My latest fantasy: The Wings clinch the cup at The Joe and Bettman strolls out to award the trophy to the team.
Al is called out to take the cup from Lidstrom for a stroll aound the ice while a 19,000 octopi rain down from the stands.

I did it kind of fast, but I'm thinking about going over to CafePress and having bumper stickers made -

Bettman's done too much damage to hockey. How he keeps his job, I'll never understand.

BTW all those who could be in attendence if we win a cup, has to chant AL forever Bettman never!!!
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

the wings fans should respond by donating to a fund to pay al's fine. the buffalo fans did it for lindy, lets do it for al!

also, i think we should stage a record number of octopi thrown at game one of round 2.

I'm currently debating of printing fliers featuring the petition website and the situation and bringing them to Game 1 of Round 2.

I as a Wings fan, did not realise that this was going on and I am sure that I am not the only one.

1000 signatures is great but obviously there is a lot more people who would sign this petition, and I'm sure that a television station such as FSN, Versus, NBC, TSN, or CBC would not even consider publicizing a petition of this size.

I obviously can't afford to make 19,000 copies and am also clearly not capable of making sure that everyone in the arena has a copy.

Anyone else down to give a helping hand?

Hell, even if you can make it to the Joe pre game to hand out to people heading in the game.

I know we can get a lot more signatures but people need to be aware of the situation and the website first.

I've passed it along in emails and phone calls to friends. I debated calling in to the NHL Live show on NHLN and asking them what they think of the idea. We need to pass it on to friends, fellow hockey fans, wherever you can share it. If you have a friend who is a fan of another team, pass it on to them as well, and if they need a reason why, just tell them it's tradition. Surely they would understand if they were true fans of the game. Just keep spreading the word any way you know how. Bettman needs to know that this is the worst lapse of reasoning he's committed in a long time.

Can't believe I never mentioned this but I signed as number 19! I am the number Ironman! Of course the applet went to auto select and fugged my last name away, but still the 48430 Zipcode for the Flint/Fenton area was posted at least.
God put me on earth to do a certain number of things. Right now I'm so far behind I'll never die.
