I know they're not going to be the "Brooklyn Islanders", but today I was messing around with PS and came up with this, purely out of just doing it for the hell of it but I think it's worth a share.

My "Brooklyn" Islanders Concept:

very cool graphic.

while the isles will say they'll keep the logo and colors, there's absolutely no doubt they'll have a 3rd that features brooklyn and they'll probably do something like you've got there as a shoulder patch - perhaps opposite or in place of the 4 slash marks they currently have for their cups

Makes me want to be a billionaire just so I can be like Wang and ensure the team never moves..

I think our next TV deal won't be as good.. Not sure what our ratings are, but I feel like part of that deal was because Dolan figured he had a monopoly on HD.. Now that everyone has access to HD, Cablevision has lost that and people are switching


Sports are the one thing that are doing substantially better in this TV market because they are broadcast live, you can't really stream them afterwards, etc. So I don't worry about that. The Islanders really don't compete with the Devils for fans - getting through New York City is just too difficult and expensive for most fans.

I don't know about that. I know at least one huge Ranger fan (STH) who lives in Brooklyn and said he would switch if the Isles moved to Barclays. We'll see if he goes through with it.


Well, he's going through with it. He's selling or giving away almost all his Rangers gear, and has already put down a deposit on season tickets at Barclays.

Well I hope you're right because we need Dolan's money.. Ughh that sucks to even think about.. I would be curious to see why MSG pays us (and the Islanders) so much for our TV rights.. I guess a breakdown of every team with their ratings and TV deals would be impossible to find

Do us all a favor and buy that man a beer.

On an unrelated note, under the fat chance NJ ever got a baseball team, I'd react the same way.

I would switch too. I hope it happens because every spring I find it harder and harder to get excited about the Yankees.
