Hmm.... Even though they lost, I wonder if said fan was thrown out and fined...

wonder how many fans in Miami got kicked out and fined for the rats, probably all of them.

Preds fans deserve a lot of credit for their crowds and support during the playoffs, but the catfish thing is just lame.

They really do have a solid fan base though for a southern expansion team.

Does Nashville have a city ordinance against throwing objects at sporting events? The Wings fans who have been fined have received that fine under a Detroit city ordinance. The NHL cannot fine a civilian.

I always assumed that the catfish is thrown because cats like to eat fish, and i think a predator is supposed to be a type of cat. Yes, stupid I know.

I wonder if the NHL and Bettman see to it that those fans got thrown out. :rolleyes:

DISCLAIMER: I am going along the angle of ruining fan experiences in general and not going for Bettman might favor Nasville/insert team name "here" and hates Detroit (which I really do not like it when fans get into that most the time in here, though I do get it)

because there is a river that runs through downtown Nashville filled with catfish. and as we all know... rednecks love to fish. but they manily started throwing it on the ice because they wanted to be just like Detroit with our octopi.
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Cut em some slack - its entertainment. They're looking for something to call their own. Sure it's a takeoff on us but honestly every time someone throws a 'pus on the ice someone has to explain it to someone. And ours is more of a symbolic tradition since it takes more than 8 to win these days anyways.

The octopus makes sense at least you know. Since the fans have been doing since(well I don't know how long) it took eight wins to the cup but a catfish? Makes no sense, Nashville trying to be like Detroit is just stupid.

Oh well. They are starting to build up a very good hockey franchise and they want to use some gimmicks... Again, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Well... at least the first time an octopus was thrown it worked for us, hence the birth of a great tradition (with meaning). The catfish thing doesn’t seem to work. :ph34r:

I would think they have an ordinance like that, however, it's Nashville so who knows.

Well, we started something with the octopus...Catfish in Nashville, rubber rats in Florida (good thing it wasn't real ones!), beef steaks in Calgary, I even heard a salmon got thrown in Vancouver. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
