I can go along with the rest of your post, but this one gets kicked out. Your tradition stays in your arena, it's not transportable. If one of your fans throws dead creatures on our ice, the security team should be responsible to come (slowly) to their rescue. After sufficiently painful medical treatment, they should then be escorted to the far corner of a very dark parking lot and rolled out into the street. We don't come to the Joe with a cannon to celebrate our goals, you don't show up here with your crap.
