Good on them for getting voted in. Scary to hear that they were abused when attending Boston games. My experience in other arenas have been great but I've never been to Boston, don't think I'm going to go there any time soon.

When it comes down to fandom Boston is pretty much like Philadelphia. Probably the worst reception visitors can get.

Get rid of Fin and hire the green men. Keep them next to the penalty box.

That's mean. Hire the green men to work alongside Fin, and phase Fin out when the guy in the suit retires.

I like em because they are polarizing/catch hate just like our team. Awesome that they won.

Who actually organizes it? I see ESPN's and StubHub's logos in the main page but it isn't clear whether if they're sponsors or if they actually administer the hall.

/e Nah it does say "ESPN Internet Ventures" so yeah.

I voted for em. Glad they won. Deserve it. Seriously every time I think they topped it they come out with better ideas. Would be sweet to hire them and they can quit their day jobs...

Don't know if it would playout for 82 games though.

Over 82 games, I'd imagine the average of getting the Green Men around, preferably with as many penalty box seats as possible, would be $30K. If there was room in the Canucks' plane I don't think travel expenses would be much higher; maybe increase by $15Kish to include the extra seats, hotel and other related expenses. Give them 5K as a fund to buy props or whatever else they may need for their performances. Suppose they're paid 75K each per year. So in total it's about 200K in expenses to give the Green Men a good salary with everything paid for. That's a tenth of what the organization dishes out to pay for Reinprecht!

For two highly recognizable entertainers, I think it could be well worth it. It would make fans show up to games even more which would drive ticket prices up; a margin as small as 5% higher already pays off the costs of having the Green Men. Plus consider the potential of additional TV audience and of course the whole distraction aspect. And they could make their own videos while on the road and not preparing for their in-game performances. That stupid Lazy Song parody video somehow managed 5+ million hits, imagine the kind of audience real Green Men could pull?

I love the Green men (check my avatar) but if they were at every game I think their effectiveness would be nullified. And their schtick might get old adding to the nullification. They should just go to the HNIC televised games, the playoffs as well as hated rival games.

All in all I'm proud of you Green Men. You do us proud by being loud and annoying towards the opposition. Next year Force!

BTW did any of you read some of the comments at the bottom of the article? We're in their heads boys!
