I fear I may lose my mind if people start blowing those damn things at the Joe....

What do you think?

So to toot or no to toot is the question?  I say if Tootoo brings reason to toot, then toot we shall, for Tootoo.

Please no. Let's try to continue not doing anything that resembles the Nashville fan base.

No no no! Whistle would be as bad as those damn thunder-sticks. Gimmicky, loud, annoying.  I'll stick to my towels, pom-poms, and glow sticks.

I haven't heard a cowbell in a hockey game in some time. Bring cowbells. And stick the Christopher Walken references up your Bettman's right now.

I'm all for the whistles.  Yeah they're a little annoying, but at the same time anything that gets fans into the game I generally support.  So whatever, if the whistle creates a more festive atmosphere then by all means lets do it.  And let's be honest, Wings fans have been watching the team win for so long that they've become fairly stoic anyway, might as well do something to lighten up.

You implying that Red Wing fans need more reason to cheer?  Just put on "Best of Detroit Rock n Roll", it will liven up a crowd way faster than some dumb whistles.  Are we hockey fans or basketball fans?

First of all, that song is not even made by a Michigan band.  If our anthem was Alice Cooper, Iggy and the Stooges, or the Nuge then maybe I'd be with you on that one.  But Journey?  f*** Journey!

 

In all seriousness, I'm not saying we have bad fans, but I am saying it takes quite a lot to get them rowdy.  I've been to far too many games where a goal is scored and nobody gets out of their seats.  It's just a very matter of fact applause and on to the next one.  Nothing wrong with it, but I have to admit I like watching games where the fans are in a fever you know?  I used to live in DC, and while the Caps sucked balls, it was fun as hell to watch a game because the fans were going nuts.  A little of that wouldn't hurt.

 

For the record, Iggy Pop's "Search and Destroy" should be the Red Wings' song.  That's pure Michigan and pure badass!

I was initially against the idea but you make a good point.  If whistles liven up the fanbase and help bring passion back into the stands then I can't be against them.

I won't lie... if he scored a goal, an assist, or made a big hit... heck, who am I kidding... even if he skated on the ice... if I had a big fat whistle in my hands I'd be tempted to blow it!!

Ever since Kenny signed him, I've been hoping that tradition wouldn't carry over to Detroit. It was the single most obnoxious thing whenever Detroit played in Nashville.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

As long as there are a few enforcers in the crowd instructed to shove those whistles up any open orifice of the offending whistle blowers, then hell, I'm all for that. :glare:

The only way those whistles will make the atmosphere festive is the applause generated by someone pummeling whoever is blowing said whistles.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I think Tootoo is very quickly going to become a fan favorite. One of those guys you love on your team but hate to play against.
