We all know about the Terrible towel for the Steelers. Then there is the Growl Towel for the Caorlina Panthers. I know the guy by the PATH sells some 60 minutes of Hell towels, but they are a cheap advertisement for him (and "HELL" isnt for everyone and limits sales).

I need help coming up with a great idea for our own towels. Ive been trying to think of something cool to print up (i am a screen printer on the side) and give out/sell. The key factor is no use of the Term "New Jersey Devils" - "Devils" - or anything else that will get me sued by the Devils and the NHL. There is no law saying i cant print up towels that say something similiar to the Terrible Towel since it doesnt have the Steelers trademarked name on it. There is a new ruling that a misleading use of the colors and whatever can get me in trouble but I can handle that part. Leave that to me and my lawyers :-)

Basically Ive been lokoing online at some word association sites trying to come up with something cool. Here is a list of words that would be cool to use.

Flag
Rag
Black
Red
Evil
Wicked
Nasty
Horns
Fire
Flame
Heat
Hot

And tons more. I just cant think of anything. Keep in mind i wouldnt wanna use the word "Flamer" or anything else the dumb Ranger fans can use against us.

Here is the deal. If you come up with the idea and it becomes the new slogan for the towel, I will pay you $50, give you 10 free t-shirts ($120 worth), and 10 free towels ($50 worth). Plus I might even use your name (if you want) as the creator.

The playoffs are coming and i wanna get some towels out to the fans for free. After this season ends ill prolly put some on ebay for a couple bucks.

If we come up with a few names for the towel, maybe the mod can post a poll and we can vote on it.

Anyway, thanks for thinking about it and great site.

Mike

Perhaps you could even give yellow towels to the bottom section, orange to the middle and red to the top. Make it look like fire. I know my imagination is running wild and this is probably close to impossible to do, but it sure would look sweet ;)

I vote we keep anything that Rhymes with "ag" out of it. To many possibilities to make fun of it by opposing teams...

The idea of the red orange and tellow would be awesome in theory, but thats something the devils have to do by themselves for the fans. Its not something that would work for me.

The flame and flag thing is a bit of a downer cause its easiest word to rhyme with (flag). But i can see the retards from NY having fun with the mocking.

This has been something ive been thinking about for a while and im stumped!

If people would confuse your product with the word devil in it for something the New Jersey Devils may have put out then you're still violating their branding. I'm actually writing a midterm on this for my branding class right now.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

this test towel comes from someone in the marketing business. the key to this one is the PA annoucer doing his part in saying "Bring the heat" or "Its a heat wave". Maybe id have to pay him off to say that :-)

So are you planning to profit from this brainstorming session? You're a schlub if you sell these for anything more than the cost to have them made up. What's your mark up - seriously? Because you're not doing this on your own and I think it's lame to take advantage - exploit - fans enthusiasm for your own profit. In highly poor form if you ask me. And you didn't :evil:

i am also curious, before commenting with ideas.. i'm a graphic designer and was thinking of mocking something up and speaking with you about it further.. but am wondering what your intentions are.
thanks

I think it just sounds like a Devils fan wanting to start a cool tradition. I remember going to playoffs (2001 I think) and the Devils handed out towels. It was great to see all those towels spinning and it adds energy to the arena. It doesn't sound like he's trying to exploit anyone, but even if he was we still have a ton of Devils fans on this forum and if they all boycott the idea then it wouldn't go anywhere. He has no reason to screw anyone over. I don't see anyone else trying this hard to get a Devils towel that will become a tradition at games
