It has been trending on twitter and has even gotten attention from the Media...

Discuss!

From the comments:

Do it, they wont throw out the entire arena

Of course not. Why would all those Wings fans be throwing snakes?

Oh, they meant the 250 Coyotes fans. My mistake.

How many Octopi throwing knockoff's will have to get swept in the playoffs until they shut up?

If they had any clue what the octopus toss originally stood for, perhaps they'd change their minds about using an animal that looks like a one. I don't even want them to win that many, but hey, if tossing a snake gets them their one playoff victory and a bunch of their fans kicked out of the arena Wednesday, well I guess they've proved their point.

We can only hope some toolbags stuff live rattlesnakes down their pants attempting to smuggle them into the game.

As a python breeder I'm just happy they plan on using plastic snakes instead of dead ones.

Oh, and it's funny that they think the issue is that they'd be thrown out. The NHL has had a rule for this since the crazy rat throwing incident in the Panthers-Aves finals and the result is that the home team would be assessed a minor penalty for delay of game.

I used to breed carpets, jungle carpets, green trees and piebald balls.

Now I live in prairie and western diamondback rattlesnake country and lemme tell ya, people have no respect for snakes.

So, +1 for at least they're plastic.

If we throw dead octopus, it's only fair they throw dead snakes? :P

I know you mean Carpet Pythons, but the mental image of breeding actual CARPETS... :blink:

Let them throw all the snakes they want. They won't laugh after they get called for penalty after penalty for delay of game.

I could use some piebalds! I breed ball pythons but I don't have much in the way of recessives. Pieds always fetch a great price.

All those wannabes in other cities need to realize you can't just make up a tradition because you'er bored, it takes time and has to stand for something.

Why? Just because Detroit is an Original Six franchise with "history" and "tradition" doesn't mean other teams, or new teams, can't have their own deals as well? We have to dump on them for trying to develop their own traditions or ideas? Let them have their fun. If it encourages fan participation and doesn't hurt anybody, let the idea go forward.

I have a ball python named The Mule. I wouldn't mind a piebald as well!

The Yotes are excited and thats a good thing, but what a sorry attempt at tradition.

I think tradition has to come about naturally, and not just be made up because fans want to throw junk on the ice.

Gotcha, that's cool.

They got to start somewhere though, whether in the grand scheme of things or ideas don't work out in the end. When you start from pretty much scratch, there are very rarely any bad ideas. And some of your best money makers or ideas is just simply doing something similar that another person/group does, and just slightly altering it to whom you are trying to promote to. Nothing wrong with that.

I know it's hate Phoenix for the next 2 weeks but I'm all for fan bases trying to have fun and encourage participation as long as they do it without being degrading or hurting people or whatever. Don't see a problem in them doing this.

I don't see a problem with what their doing, and more fan participation will only grow the sport.

I just wish they would think of something a little more original and thats true to their team and fan base.

Their tradition shouldn't be "we took the tradition of the team we were playing, twisted it to fit our geographic area, and acted like it made us cool". Develop your own tradition, don't steal it.

In the end is it really going to matter how the idea developed? Nobody is really going to care how it happened in the grand scheme of things.

The only people that are going to get in a tizzy about this are die-hard fans.

Not worth getting all worked up about.

It's not 'thier own tradition' or 'thier idea'. It's ours, that they are trying to copy and modify. At least the rat-trick thing had some backing behind it. This is just lame mimicry.

How about they come up with something that doesn't involve throwing some kind of animal on the ice. How about they howl at the moon, or chase a roadrunner, or encroach on to suburban areas and kidnap small dogs from the backyards of elderly ladies. (Ok, that last one is a bad idea, but you get my point.)

(Side note, an elderly lady in my neghborhood did recently lose a small dog, and a coyote has been seen in the area several times. It is really getting out of hand.)

Sometimes ideas or concepts, take something that somebody originally had, and put your own spin on it or try to make it work a bit differently. Happens in business and work all the time. It's better than them doing nothing and it's not worth getting feelings hurt that they might do this.
