A fan who threw a catfish during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final was arrested in Pittsburgh after he did the deed. Tossing objects on the ice is an honored tradition in the NHLthrowing hats, catfish and octopi are fun ways for fans to get involved. However, being disruptive at a sporting event is childish and there are other ways of having fun at the games. No one wants to sit next to someone holding a dead octopus for an entire game. What do you think? 🏒

People can’t have fun anymore? Geez. Tossing things on the ice is as much a part of hockey as fighting is. Is it completely necessary? Absolutely not, but it adds an extra dimension of fan participation that people love. Pittsburgh handled the situation all wrong by arresting someone for trying to have fun at a hockey game. To arrest someone for tossing a harmless fish on the ice, when people have been doing it for decades, is petty and weak.

If you want to eject a guy from the stadium for throwing something on the ice, that call should be on the teambut to take the extra step to arrest and charge someone with a crime? That's overkill. Do authorities really want to ruin someone’s life for minimally interrupting a game? Are we going to start arresting people for throwing hats on the ice for hat trick, too? 

Give us a break.

When people toss things on the ice, it’s not about fun. It’s childish, and people should not be proud of this hockey tradition. What’s fun about throwing a dead animal? It’s a crude act that exposes people to disgusting stenches, and less-than-sanitary depending on how its flung (octopi matter doesn’t always stay on the octopus when it’s thrown). Hat-tossing during a hat trick should also be included because it delays the game. At a certain point, people need to grow up.

While harsh, arresting and charging someone for throwing things on the ice is the only way people will get the message. Tossing objects on the rink is moronic, and making it illegal is the only way people will stop.
