Are there restrictions when making a jersey? Every team has a simple crest dead center.. can a team make a jersey with an off kilter logo?

The green Canucks one with the stick and rink? I thought that one was kinda cool. Sort of Whalers-esque

Hey the Packers just sold stock to the public and raised some serious money, why can't the Dev's do that ??
from the article: Selling all 280,000 shares would raise $70 million.

Their using most of that money for renovations to their stadium, not just for profit.

The Devils needed 80 million last year (they still havent paid) and 140 million in 2014 just to keep running....there would be no profit

Not to mention the Packers are the Packers. Millions upon millions of fans from everywhere in the US willing to spend a couple hundred bucks on a piece of paper.

That's unreasonable to expect here - just look at the bricks in Championship Plaza. There's two sections, when the original plans called for them to circle the entire logo AND the steel hockey player structure.

Yeah plus with the financial troubles the Devils are reportedly having, many people might not see the Devils as a wise investment while the Packers are clearly not having financial problems.

I would hardly call packers "stock" to be an investment since you cannot sell it, provides no voting power and yields no dividends. It is basically a nice little scam to raise cash to gullible fans.

That was my point when I asked that question, it's a fund raiser more or less, and you get a nice certificate to hang on the wall. I'm sure people on this board have spent plenty of money on jerseys (that are obsolete when that player isnt a Devil anymore) and banners and clocks etc etc.

Exactly, a buddy of mine bought two. Which REALLY doesn't make any sense.

Didn't realize you can't sell it, then yea they are pretty much just asking for donations haha.

I would just hope any 3rd jersey wouldn't be another one with the logo in a circular crest i.e. the Wild, Blues, Penguins, Blackhawks and I think even Panthers did it. It's their regular logo downsized with a circular frame with "XXXXX XXXXX" "Hockey Club" or something around it. Maybe something a little more inspired. I always liked the idea of a black one with red shoulders and the skating devil Lowell used...

Yeah I just checked with the website that has an FAQ about their "stock" and it yields no dividends, is not tax-deductible, and you can only sell stock to members of your immediate family. This pretty much makes it worthless.

I did notice that I was wrong on the voting part as each stock gives you 1 vote. To vote on I have no clue but I doubt they will leave important club matters to the cheesehead fans of theirs other than maybe what should be on the menu at the concessions stands.

Wanna raise money- win and win consistently. Have a sound business plan that doesn't diloute your product image. A third jersey, although good for the marginal fan interest, may diloute fan interest for the "winning brand" over the course of time.

Coca Cola, for example, hasn't changed its logo...if they did, people would not like it more...

The Devils still had trouble filling the arena consistently between 95-03, so winning is only going to marginally help the Devils at most.

With the Coca-Cola thing, sometimes change is good in an unexpected way. When they released Coke 2 in the 80's, people were so up in arms about the change that they reverted back to the original formula and sales spiked due to nostalgia and put them ahead to Pepsi, with whom they were losing to and were trying to dethrone with Coke 2.

Same thing happened a couple years back with I believe it was Tropicana where they changed their logo on their boxes and people hated it so much that Tropicana went back to the original one.
