Voted "no". They're funny now and then, but to see them every home game would become annoying very fast.

green men are the bomb but I feel that they would get old and unable to come up with new material

RIP to the BEST pound for pound fighter the NHL has ever seen. Will be missed.

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


there are only 41 home games though

Remember back when the BC Lions hired Krazy George to cheerlead the fans at BC Place? He was awesome! The fans have never come close to equaling what KG was able to get out of pretty much the same fans back then. While the green men dont have the same effect on the fans, I am definitely in favour of the Canucks hiring someone to get the Garage up to the levels that you hear in Chicago, Minnessota, Montreal. We are proud fans, and we have our moments where we rival any fans in the league, but having someone like Crazy George rile the fans up in those quiet moments would be great. The green men are a step in the right direction until this person shows up.

No to free tickets. No to the Green Men. :sick:

Agree with all of the people who think they are past their due date. They were funny for a game or two. I do love the idea of them doing some charity work, though.

I voted Yes but I wanted an option inbetween. Important games or when the team needs to get pumped up sounds good. Unfortunately those that get paid for ideas in the organization haven't come up with anything yet so good on those guys for at least doing something.

For really big games Johnny Canuck doing a Hacksaw Jim Duggan at center ice before the game would be cool.

Green Men are geared towards kids under 10 years of age or first year fans just discovering hockey.

Real hockey fans don't need distractions that take away from the skill / drama of the game.

No thanks to 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.


Brilliant idea.

They should be given free tickets because they throw off the opposition.

There are like 41 or 42 home games but still too much material for them to handle

This is non-sense. Just because they're goofing around at games doesn't mean they should get free season tickets. This is a business man, this leagues revenues are driven by the gate. Also how do you think this would make life-long season ticket holders feel? People who have been there since day one? the loyal fans who kept renewing their tickets through all the dark times this franchise faced? If anything, maybe some of those guys should get free-seasons tickets for a year for having been so loyal for so long. Or give it to someone who is a hero in the community. There are many more deserving people then the fricken green men.

Instead of them give free tickets to charity workers or kids with disabilities they are more deserving but I love the green men when they piss of the the other teams players.


Hahahah why is someone with a disability more deserving?

And someone that works for charity is more deserving than dedicated superfans? They're doing nobler work (in some people's opinions), however, tickets to a CANUCKS game I think, the superfans of the CANUCKS would be most deserving.



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.


You're that kid that nobody likes.

If they were given season tickets, they would be at every game and would become very dull very fast.

I think they should be given free playoff tickets as a playoff "mascot" of sorts...in exchange for some community work...

that is a good idea. Get rid of fin and hire the green men. they could become our official mascot.

I don't know. I enjoy them when I see them, but It's kind of like leaving the Christmas tree + decorations up all year.
Nobody beats our Canucks' meat !

Sure, why not? It's not my money.

This being said, I volunteer myself to receive free tickets for all of next season so I can scout out the best possible seats for their use.
