Being that Mule and the boys will likely pick up the tab for anyone that gets fined by this retarded new "Bettman Rule", no reason not to keep throwing 'em!!!

And if tradition along with that isn't enough reason already, now there is the extra incentive of getting to spite Bettman and his cronies!!! :yowza:

Let us stop saying things like "this is lame," and FIGHT BACK.

If people can use the internet to overthrow governments, we have to be able to do something about the NHL being absurd.

I think it is high time we mobilize and fight back against the NHL. Any ideas?

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.

Although I admit that I have no idea what goes on in politics and governments; But, is there any way people can try to sway city council or w/e to get this ticket waved, or have the entire thing dissipate in general?

I am going to try and find more numbers.

Frank Brown seems to be someone who weighs in, let us find this information already and start getting aggressive.

You have to think that the cops are only doing this to appease the NHL, so you could probably argue (and have the cop back you up) that they didn't want to write the ticket, but were told to by the NHL, and under NHL rules, throwing objects on the ice is allowed in certain celebratory circumstances. And being this is Detroit and these are the playoffs, and it is celebatory playoff tradition here, it should be let go. I'm just brainstorming though, I am not a lawyer and don't know how these things actually go down. But I'm sure the judge probably wouldn't be to happy either that a city like Detroit, who has much larger issues to deal with, is having their court system burdened by non-sense like this.

FWIW, in addition to the "Don't Tread on Me" Octopus t-shirt that's been available on the LGW Shop for a couple months, I'm actually working on a couple right now that I'll have the artwork posted up for tonight... Might be a day or two before I get the final art approved for production.

I'm not a fan of the "tight neck" t-shirt design that those appear (from the pictures) to be. Any chance for a wider cut neckline or v-neck shirt for the designs?

I think they need to have a charity night for this. So and so will donate $10,000 to a charity for each octopus thrown on the ice :hehe:

OK, it just hit me. If you'd like I'd be happy to throw an octopus at the league office doors and leave. I'd put red and white ribbon on the legs and simply splat it on the door. My wife just said she'd post any bail and videotape it.

If I don't see plentiful octopus tomorrow this plan is ON

Please, good Lord, please. I think you should wait til they close one night and cover the doorstep so they can't even enter the building the next day without being reminded of the octopus. ;p

One of the funnier comments I read regarding this, via the puck daddy comment section;

If and when pens fans start throwing bandwagons on the ice i guarantee it would be not only allowed but encouraged





The phrase "Pens fans" can also be substituted with "Chicago fans".

Matt, I promise to buy one of these new designs if you'll get some V-Neck or something. Crew neck shirts are for boys. :(

ok now that i have a few more details, i can state my opinion.

is throwing stuff on the ice grounds for ejection? yes and it always has been. octopi chuckers usually go quietly and willingly with no fuss and all parties involved have generally seemed to be cooperative and peaceful. everyone know what theyre getting themselves into.

that said, this is still complete and total bulls***. f*** commisioner golem


I totally agree with this. It seems, though, the cooperative parties were usually in other arenas.

I'm with everyone who is calling for octopi rain tomorrow.

Wonder if this will be the same as what happened to the streaker I saw at Comerica when I was at the Tigers/Royals game on my bday (Sept 15) in 2009.


The guy communicated with me (and the Security guard who tackled him actually). Turned out he didn't get prosecuted by anyone. They dropped the charges. And what are the chances someone at the Joe actually recognizes him?
