I mean, sure, I'm sure there was a Devils fan or two throwing rats, but somehow intuition tells me that there were likely far more Florida fans throwing plastic rats onto the surface. Seriously, blaming Devils fans is embarrassing.


Panthers Somehow Blame Devils Fans For Ruining Rat-Throwing Tradition

*I've duly noted that some of you have acknowledged the ridiculousness of the Panthers' accusation so I'm not lumping everyone in
Seeing as how a Devil fan was escorted out of the arena for tossing the rat prior to that face off, obviously they are throwing em. Certainly not every case is a Devils fan, however. Now, they aren't being put so easily into anyone's hands.

Tradition ruined? Not close, and they weren't sold in the arena in 96, people went out and found em. As it should have stayed.

This likely also takes away blame from Panther to a degree. Smart decision, didn't like that they were sold there anyway.
