I think they NHL needs to stay out of it, the guys aren't harming the game right now they're just having fun. It's the same with us and the octopus throwing, we have our etiquette and don't mess with the game so it should be left alone. If the NHL wants to keep ruining the fans' fun, they'll start losing fans.

I think it's hysterical. A lot of people need to lighten up.

Though I do have to kinda agree with the league's stance that they can't be hanging upside down and crap off the penalty box.


They already found a way around that :D

I think they are harmless... but they should really stick to home games. they might incite a brawl.

if they want to pull that crap in their own barn fine, but if they ever come to the joe and try to pull that stunt and i'm there they better be ready for a beer shower and a knuckle sandwich.

I think it would be disrespectful to do that in another teams rink, plus I think they are kind of lame..

just go to the game, have fun and cheer your team. no need to act like goofs and be attention whores.



Well aren't you a tough guy?

They went to Nashville's barn and they were fine. The fans actually had fun with them there. They were respectful and commented how much fun they had and how great the Pred's fans are.

That's like condoning a Red Wing fan getting a beer shower and a "knuckle sandwich" for throwing the octopus on visitors ice.

It would be funny if it were original. Or they were on acid just like Charlie.

Three things the OP will never be:

1. A clown at a kid's birthday party.
2. Dressed up as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
3. First to get an invitation to a party.

I asked you what your opinion of the Green men were. I didn't ask you what your opinion of me was. Nice.

Their green men are a delicate subject. As is their 40 year history without a Cup :thumbup: It's all good my man, insecurity has many levels.

Sorry, but it was just my way of telling you to loosen your collar and lighten up a little. Not to mention that you should stop worrying about what goes on in Vancouver.

They interviewed Fisher after the game and he said he would've kissed her if it wasn't such a serious game.

I like that reply by Fischer.

I also like the green guys in Vancouver. Sports is fun, and that's fun. More teams should have fans like that. I think if I was a player, I'd have something planned for them if I got a penalty.

I think they are hilarious, imagine if they were around while Shanahan was still playing, he mocked a few fans while sitting in the sin-bin in his day, he would probably have something planned for them IMO.

I don't see a problem with it. A lot of sports teams have their own little thing going on, like Vancouver with the Green Men, Red Wings with the octopi, the Yankees with their Roll Call (although I wouldn't mind seeing that section accidentally collapse during one of their games), etc.

Also, It's Always Sunny is a great show.

I actually like these idiots.

So does the press knows who these guys are, in terms of their real names?
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

and Hilarious!!!

They are season ticket holders, so i don't think it'd take a lot of work to find out if you are the press and I'm sure everyone around that area knows who they are.

Recent TSN feature on the green men.

My favourite part is the two little girls (I think) dressed up as green men for Halloween. Right near the end. OP, how could you rob them of their heroes!!!
