In Topic: GDT: 12/4/14 New Jersey 76ers vs. the team that will beat them

F the Blues, Great that Marty got to play again if that's what he wants, but it didn't matter to me one bit what team he went to, as long as it wasn't the Rangers, Isles, Flyers or Pens. I'm not going to watch a Blues game even if he is playing, not going to root for them...I'll only watch if our team isn't playing and it's like a game on NBCSports or some national game.

 

It's great people still show support for Marty, and I wish him well (though it'll always be an asterisk on his legacy because it was always talked about that he'd be a career Devil and all that) but i'd rather focus on our own team instead of bailing because we're doing lousy and a former player is playing for someone else now. But that's just me.

In Topic: Corporate Logos coming to NHL Jerseys

Yeah cause that will cause fans to walk away.

 

Fans of the premier league sure revolted when Barclay's sponsored their ENTIRE league. NASCAR fans sure stay away cause of corporate logos.

I really have to wonder WHY we need corporate sponsorship league wide...is the league doing that bad, or is it just a huge money grab?

Wow was not expecting to see a Brazzers logo for the Flyers, but it's pretty fitting....

Hate the idea. And the thing with football (soccer, whatever) larger teams tend to have one 3rd lustre shirt sponsor. It's not that intrusive. Smaller teams start to sell of every bloody inch. Look at the kits from teams in the French league 1.

Hockey teams in Europe do much the same to generate revenue. It just looks horrible.

I don't know too much about soccer other than when I passively watch the World Cup or Olympics, but it sounds like Arsenal in the UK, you'd expect their jerseys to say "Arsenal" on them or have the official team logo...no, their jerseys just say "Fly Emerates" on the front...first impression from the ingonrants is "so they are the Fly Emerates team?"

 

What I see this lead to as well iif it gets too out of control is worse than AHL level ads on the ice, more like Euro standards - pretty much every piece of white space is sponsored by someone so it's hard to tell where the lines and faceoff dots are. If the goalie wasn't standing on it almost the whole game, the crease would be one big ad as well. Even paint the goal nets with some kind of ad
