Not a chance in hell. Pay for them like everyone else.

Watching them around the box with Eager in it is worth a free ticket, getting under Glen Healys skin is pretty cool as well.

If they have access to whatever games they wish to attend already, then I'd say no. I agree with the idea that they should go and have some fun with the children as well. Marquee match-ups would be the best, particularly hockey night in canada games with the most wide span of viewers. Perhaps 5-6 free games per year, or a few less if they can already readily afford the tickets?

No thanks. This affects the franchise's bottom line, and it has good money riding on those seats.

No. As much as I've enjoyed their entertaining antics, it's their contribution as FANS that make it special. Free season tickets would essentially make them employees of Orca Bay like Fin.

It's not all bad for the Green Men though as they've picked up some endorsement deals along the way.

Why should those douche bags get 10,000 dollar season tickets for putting on green tights. If thats the case then the oakland raiders would go broke if they gave season tickets away for fans dressing up in costumes. I personally don't care for the green guys.

Yeah, in exchange for some charity work in the community. I'm sure the kids in Children's hospital would love to meet them and have pictures with them.

Good idea kind sir

I know their schtick is getting old to some people, but I still find them extremely humorous. I say give them at least a discount.

I may be one of the few, but I think these guys shouldn't even be allowed to do that. Fair enough It was funny the first season (kids love'em) ...but half the crap they do would get anybody else kicked out.

The fact that they would go to a Canucks game, and waste amazing seats by watching them through green panty hose just so they can be on TV says it all.

I mean, give the seats to some poor kids if you aren't going to watch properly. At least they'd watch the ice and be respectful of the players.

I'd be fine with them popping up once in a while. (the kids love'em)
Playoffs?- fine. That's cool.

But should they pay? HELL EFFIN YES.

If they can afford to waste incredible seats for the last 2 seasons, they can definitely afford it for the next season. They are lucky to have gotten free tickets at all.

Some might say I should lighten up, but I ask you this my fellow fan...

To what stadiums do the Canucks visit, where a couple of guys are allowed to affect players focus every time a penalty is served? It's a distraction from the game, but it's allowed because it's funny?

If I had to compromise, I'd say the Green men just need to tone it down.
Their gig would be just as affective, if they simply just sat and stared at the penalized player. Stop with the borderline bad taste prop gags.

As McFly says,these guys are screwing with the opposition and distracting from the game.

No way would I want a Canuck to be screwed with in this manner-or worse- in another arena.

Get rid of these jokers.

From a fan's perspective, hell yes, but from the Canucks Organization perspective, of coarse not. They haven't really brought that much more revenue because no one is going there just to see the Green Men, but it might have increased in the rate in which people want to buy seats around them, or even try to steal their spots. Hell, teams and players have complained about them, so the Canucks don't really see it as anything important, and plus giving tickets away to them would seem unfair to the rest. But if I was the Canucks I would give them free season tickets, frack yeah, you know how expensive they are? The Green Men are gradually becoming an icon apart of this franchise and will obviously go down in history, and they should be supported, why not make more out of this and create something deeper and even more creative to add to this franchise, the fans at the games are boring enough. However, the reason they are not going to be paid to attend games is because no one was paying them initially, it was on their own initiative to come and do this.

The community work idea as someone mentioned would be a great idea.

Other than that, the Green men should only go to playoffs, and only a few reg season games: Chicago, Boston, Calgary, Toronto, etc.

82 games is a lot to come up with new material for.

41, we don't play a whole season at home.

It's up to the Canucks management, so why are we arguing about it? If I was the Canucks I'd give them 1/2 season's tickets. Considering how quiet, and reserved Rogers Arena gets, there's no question the Green Men's antics get's the crowd motivated.

Sure, encourage moronic behaviour by rewarding them with free tickets.  Next thing you know there will be other idiots trying to out do them so they can get free tickets as well. If those goofs were "sitting" in front of me, or close enough to infringe on my enjoyment of the game, you better believe I would be complaining.

Nope, they are using the Canucks to increase their own popularity. If anything they should be paying the Canucks for the marketing the club has done. lol

The list is too extreme. You can either love them and keys to the city or hate them and their mothers too.

While they can be funny sometimes, there is no reason that it earns them tickets.
