    Interesting ideas here, well done.
  2. Not sure if this is the right forum. But in 1976 my parents help me build the full NFL collection of mini helmets from Pizza Hut or Dairy Queen, can’t remember which. Still have them stored. Has the NFL done a similar collection in the last decade? Just curious you can see them here: https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/1976-dairy-queen-laich-football-ice-407750697
  3. This is easy: Spiders it is already built in. Should not take much time.
  4. The fact it uses a net and a fishing boat can mean either Kraken or Sockeye. It is Kraken look at the image on the shirt of the young man. + I am curious about the suspenders I see the letters “en” cannot make out the rest.
  5. Maybe tomorrow we will know. NHLSeattle posted a video 5 minutes a go! Go Kraken!
  6. Need to find a way to host graphics again.
  7. Don’t remember all the people who helped. But my Washington Rattlers Fantasy Logo, based on the don’t thread on me flag would be an outside the box idea for the change in DC.
  8. Chargers and Browns got it right! Pats biggest losers!
  9. Silver helmets are now out of place. The should have made it white at this point. The silver is now out of place.
  10. Why call them anything, because we can not agree 100%, maybe we should just pack it in before we start. The big thing at this point is they should have a name and colors otherwise it will be underwhelming and lost it the large picture. Look at the PR is getting on releasing new uniforms and the draft....
  11. Surprised not orange pants but still a nice clean look.
  12. I am sure the author will be fine with a percentage and the free advertising. I get it, you’re going to argue about Kraken or Krakens there is always 30% of people that will disagree. It is all opinions anyways. I am telling you in my belief it will be Kraken(s). You can dig up polls when this started that say “Metropolitans” was the name. I guess we will all see.
  13. Sockeyes is copyrighted and NHL is avoiding those issues.
  14. Really because every poll that is given people dismiss the result, the result shows that Kraken wins the poll either by large numbers or small. So glean from it what you will.
  15. If my shot does not work, look it up on their twitter feed... it is dated 4/10 you will see a bunch of polls and a post in that about a team name with a poll.
  16. Here you go... maybe... https://photos.app.goo.gl/Y1RpDKQbNLpJtbQ66
  17. I will see if I can find it...
  18. Just saw a Seattle NHL post hidden in it by a poster was a poll. 63% of the people (450+ votes) voted in favor of Kraken. With 4 names that is a high percentage for a name, the other 3 the next highest was about 25%. Leaked or not only one name makes sense at this point that is free of copyrights etc. Kraken.
  19. NFL does not seem to have a problem launching new uniforms etc. NHL Seattle needs to follow suit, people are looking for sports news this is better then getting caught once everyone returns. The story will be back page come May to June with sports starting back up. Just my thoughts.
  20. All one color is the worst combos ever. Black is the topper, you want your players to appear bigger not smaller, black males you look small. Even all white bothers me, unless it is baseball. Otherwise football uniforms should have offset pants to jerseys like the Raiders, Cowboys or Green Bay. There is not one I like, but that is my opinion that does not contrast that looks good.
  21. Not sure how they will get a name released now for at least the next two months. They should have released it back in November for the holiday season. I just got a Hat Club ad for a Kraken design... It is Mariner Colors... but still. You wait and what happens. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/286541595014006569/
  22. First, I never claimed it was being used, I said memes are. We all can agree memes in general or a Social Media creation and used in current teenage pop culture. Secondly, Tell Facebooks 7 billion dollar profit that Social Media does not work. Or “Ninja” his $30 million deal does not work because he used Social Media as a platform. The negative of Social Media is that Kids are abusing it for purposes that most consider “Irresponsible” and during times when they should not. Lastly, Seattle Sockeyes is ok. But it is copyrighted by a author (not just in her book, the name is central to her book series) and the NHL does not want a name with such issues and have to pay her for the next 100 years. Baltimore Ravens has a similar issue with their helmet logo and changed their logo to avoid paying another individual for it. I am guessing she wants a fee + percentage of all use and still have use herself. The Seahawks pay Texas A&M to use the 12th man, hence why they attempt to just be 12s or 12 as often as possible. Again, names without issues on the final five list: Evergreens and Kraken. Sockeyes, Totems, Emeralds and Metropolitans all have copyright issues.
  23. My teenage son and his friends talk non-stop about memes. Adults are some what disconnected to the culture of teens, as always. So, maybe a meme is that same as Jurassic Park then...and we don’t know it. At least the ownership group is not using Fortnight to get a name. People post about culture values, gimmicks, copyrights and minor league. The fact is the only nickname that can create it is own identity is the Kracken or Krackens free of legal issues and gimmicks. Sorry Sockeye is a gimmick through the tongue and cheek reference and a minor league is name like Hens, or Frogs. I also don’t need to hear the Totem name mocked with male genitalia. Yes it will happen. There are issues with them all. The buzz created over the name has people talking during Super Bowl week. It was number 1 on Twitter. Remember Good or bad PR is this case is good PR, right out of PT Barnum’s playbook.
  24. No saying there is imagery. But it works. Of the 5 the Kraken is the best. I personally would have liked the Pilots, Admirals, Fathoms, Yetis or Freeze better. However, there are 5 choices and this is the best of the 5. And it works because Seattle as Norwegian ties and historical neighborhoods.
  25. FYI - Seattle does have a large Norwegian influence. See the https://www.nordicmuseum.org, you know the National Norwegian Museum, located In Seattle. I grew up in a suburb that has “Norway Hill” as a location and Vikings as the mascot to represent the local area. Not to mention Ballard neighborhood. Please don’t say there is no tie to the region. Add to this the Giant Pacific Octopus and it works. If they wanted to just make money the team would be called Totems, Sockeye or Metropolitans, Kraken has a ton of potential for atmosphere and marketing possibilities. Kraken is a solid choice.
