Well the NHL is trying to crack down on the Octopi throw. Again. Part 392.



Well, our time honored tradition is receiving its annual heat from the league. Sure everyone else thinks it's a stupid tradition but who wants to be like everyone else. Got this story from RedWingsGuy.com via Facebook who in turn links in to this Deadspin article. Yeah, the time honored tradition (and ultimate F*** You if performed in opposing ice arenas after the Wings fan most likely had to endure the constant chorus of "Detroit sucks" and possible death threats but I digress) finds itself back in the sights supposedly from the very top of the NHL.  It's no secrete that Wings fans often pullout their tinfoil hats (in the shape of Stanley Cups) every time Cambell or Bettman's name is mentioned in some controversy or just plain capital D dash dash dash word move towards the Wings and their fans. Yes, there's laws on Detroit City books about throwing foreign objects on playing fields. Yes, there's an official NHL policy and rules concerning foreign objects being thrown on to the ice. I far as I am concern the Hockey Gods approve our ritual sacrifice.
