Nope.

At least their signs are more original than the threads on CDC.

No, the sign of Emilio Estevez in a Canucks jersey was friggin' hilarious. Haha They always entertain me.

They aren't an exciting fresh novelty any more, but it's still way more entertaining than some random average fan sitting there.

I say bring back the Eager flasher.

I think they are like 26-27, so they should have a few more good years before we see a decline in their production.

I voted yes mainly because I wouldn't miss them if they stopped.

I still do chuckle at them now and then though.

yeah for me, i don't care...they are sort of fun, sometimes, now and again...but if they just stopped, i wouldn't mind at all. Firmly in the don't care camp. That is why I am here being overly emphatic about it. sly grin.

They're about 1 year older than they were a year ago. 'Old' is relative... They seem to be young to middle aged.

This is dumb. Are you older now then you were then? Do you consider yourself old?

Voted "don't care". But they do bring a little entertainment to Rogers Arena, I'll give them that. Its pretty quiet in there. Went to my first game against the Lames Sept 26, and man was it dead unless we scored. Some people sitting behind us kept talking and didn't even care about the game. Also our section tried to get the wave started but only got like 1/4 of the arena to do it. Pathetic.

Preseason games tend to have people who got free tickets. That said, it's preseason action too so there is nothing be overly excited about.

 

It's Vancouver, people here are too cool for The Wave. Though it would be nice for something new. I was at OSU college game and the whole stadium was split into 3 sections, 2 sidelines and the end zones. Each section would have a letter. Sideline 1 chants O, endzones chant S and sideline 2 chanted U. Then they just repeated it a few times. EVERYONE participated. Something like that would be great.

 

I heard from one of the Green men on the radio the other day. I think they plan to attend 4 games this season, that's it.

Considering its not even their idea, and it was representative of a different era in the Canucks team, yes.

 

That being said, the eggo skit never gets old

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

I must admit I'm always a little disappointed when I see that bearded guy in those seats instead of the green men. I voted no.

It's just greenwashing.

 

Instead of trying so hard I'd laugh more if they had 1 good gag a night, and just sat there like idiots the rest of the time. Truth is though, I burst a few times, notably, the handstand, the Emilio, and the massive junk thrust.

 

Mostly, they do nothing for me.

 

edit: responding to threads where the OP has been banned is rather amusing to me.

I think with their style of play they could last longer into their 30s.
