http://www.kuklaskor..._fine_and_jail/

Via On the Wings' Matt Saler (blog link), The Hockey Writers' Monica McAlister (blog/article link) and, well, Deadspin's Brian Hickney is reporting—and reputably so, with visual proof—that if you throw an octopus at Joe Louis Arena, during a Red Wings game, you will be ejected, fined $500, face a court hearing, and possibly sent to jail if you do not pay $150 to the Detroit Police department, for, and I quote from the ticket…

"Throwing an object which would cause injury onto the playing field of an athletic contest."

According to both the person who was charged, one Tommy B., and Ms. McAlister, the new ruling is that you will be fined $500 if caught in the act of throwing an octopus by Joe Louis Arena's security guards. Whether this new fine is being enacted by the city to bump up ticket revenues or whether the NHL pressured the Wings into enforcing it, we don't know yet.

Thanks for taking fun and tradition out of the game.

But I must be off, I have some jerking off to do. Oh btw I like to consider myself extremely attractive and am proud of myself for being your intellectual superior as I am going to UofM next year, and I am a better hockey player than Crosby.

Al gets fined everytime he spins the octa and he doesn't give a f***, neither should we.

f*** the NHL for trying to ruin a pristine tradition in the NHL.

If that bitchass Cindy Crysby's team was doing it, you bet your asses the NHL wouldn't say a goddamn thing.
Don't take it from fans on LGW, take it from his peers. NHL players have spoken and they think Tootoo is the dirtiest player in the league.

Get a clue already.

If they did fine everyone though, that would be over $10 million in fines. :scared:

Wow I was actually planning on throwing one next game I go to these playoffs, thats unfortunate. Might have to wait til the end of the game or until security isnt looking instead of during the anthem.

Jailtime.. pfft ill be across the border before they know whats happening :pirate:

EDIT: had to add badass pirate smiley to sound tougher

******* bulls***. Bettman is such a ******. He should be scared if he ever has to present the cup at the Joe again. I would hope he get pummeled by them.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

If I played for the Wings I'd get all my millionaire teammates to kick in some pocket change to pay these fines for the fans.

That would be epic - seeing Bettman pelted by octopi!
Wings would never get a power play again :)

They can fine all they want. It won't stop the octopus from flying. In fact, this will probably only encourage it via the the streisand effect..

f*** Bettman, f*** the NHL, keep throwing the octopi. :octo:

I would like to take the time for everyone who is freaking out to pump the breaks and understand the "pig cops" aren't the ones enacting these new laws.

Really makes me wonder when people start screaming "f*** the police" from a law they didn't decide on but now are required to enforce.
