Thumbs down Waffles?

Ok, i don't get it. I was listening to the radio this morning and they went on about how Make Believe fans are throwing Waffles on the ice at games in disgust over their play. Hmmmm

WTF message does throwing waffles on the ice supposed to send? Most were saying that it's being done because they're frustrated with the team. Really........really? Only in this city would fans of that team spend hundreds of dollars to go and watch a shit team, that they already know is shit just so they can throw ...............waffles? There must be a more effective way to protest, no?

Baffling really, they can't even throw anything cool on the ice. Lame! Anyway, just wondering because i still can't believe this one. So waht's the meaning behind this lamness?


If you threw something at a Raptor game, what would it be? lol

How is it baffling? someone gets mad and throws something.

I think it's pretty funny actually.

What i think is strange is starting a whole thread about it and overanalizing it like there's something more to talk about. The act itself was a very simple thing.

The Rats were even more stupid, didn't the Octopus have a meaning behind it at least. Waffles make no sense whatsoever. Just wondering if there was a meaning behind it. Like fans were "Waffling" on the team or something? Which that can't be it. lol

feeling lazy this morning so i'll just rip this from another site ...

The first octopus landed on the ice during the Red Wings' 1952 Stanley Cup run, courtesy of brothers Pete and Jerry Cusimano, who owned a fish market. If you know your cephalopods, you will know that an octopus has eight tentacles. In those days it took eight playoff wins to claim the Cup, hence the supposed symbolism of the gesture.
The Red Wings were perfect in the '52 playoffs, sweeping the semifinal and the final in straight games. The octopus has been a good luck charm ever since.
By 1995, the team had adopted the tradition by introducing a mascot, Al the Octopus. Al is raised to the rafters of Joe Louis Arena before every home playoff game, and used in team merchandising and promotion.

and this...

The rat trick was a gimmick popularized by fans of the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League (NHL) during their 199596 season and trip to the 1996 Stanley Cup Finals. The term, a play on hat trick, was coined by Panthers goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck after teammate Scott Mellanby killed a rat in the locker room prior to the team's home opener, then scored two goals. Fans immediately picked up on the idea and began throwing plastic rats on the ice to celebrate goals. By the time the Panthers reached the 1996 playoffs, thousands of rats hit the ice after every Panthers goal, resulting in an off-season rule change by the NHL that allowed for referees to penalize the home team if fans disrupt the game by throwing objects onto the ice.

waffles ???...i have no fucking idea

It's a great money make scheme now.

Go to the ACC before the game.
Charge 1$ per waffle, bring several 32(or 100) packs.
Profit
