  1. With apologies to San Jose Sharks fans (not intending to offend), this is a logo concept for a ball hockey team named "The Sharts."  The idea was to make something in the realm of the San Jose Sharks logo (biting the hockey stick), but make it some sort of shart monster.  Tried to make it look wet and gross.  Maybe it's too gross?

     

     

    MOD EDIT

    Anyone else surprised that no leaks have been made? Even the Jets had one before they unveiled their logo.

     

    ... Speaking of expansion, The NHL website has an interesting wee article on how the other 30 teams got their names. If you didn't know or had forgotten, it's a good read.

    Someone on a Jets Facebook fan page posted this logo, claiming it was a leak.  Could it be true? Or is it just a fan made logo?

     

    If it is it, I'm disappointed.  Looks minor league to me.  Mascot holding a hockey stick with name underneath.  Doesn't look cool or intimidating.  Anyway, it's probably not the real thing, but in case it is, I thought I'd post it.  

     

    Someone please set the record straight if you know!

    You answered your own question. It's bush league because the timing makes it absolutely for attention. Yes the argument is legitimate, I don't think anyone is denying that, but the timing is what screams "look at me and look at me now." It comes off more like a whining child looking for attention than a serious adult looking for debate.

     

    With that said, the squeaky wheel gets the oil so while being bush league, maybe it works?

     

    My questions were rhetorical. This issue has been brought up countless times and it has gone nowhere.  They still continue to use a racist logo.  The people fighting the logo can and should continue to use every effort and platform available until the team finally changes it.

    My whole issue is how Cleveland has been playing the Blue Jays in Toronto for 40+ years, and just now Ontario has issues with it? And in 2016, Ontarians (?) are all of a sudden offended with Chief Wahoo and their team name.  Aren't their bigger, more pressing issues than a sports team's name and logo in Ontario?

     

     There are many many people in both Canada and the U.S. that are offended by it.  And I'm not one of those people that thinks that everyone must be insulated from every chance at being offended.  But I'm seriously shocked at how many people are ok with this logo in 2016.

     

    And I hate the "aren't there more important issues" argument.  So because world hunger hasn't been solved, we should ignore every injustice?  It's a simple fix - get rid of the logo.  How hard is that?

    Not a fan of Wahoo, but trying to take it to court for the ALCS is bush league.

     

    I don't see why it's bush league.  The team is a win away from the world series and this is a great time to get the logo issue some attention.  It's obvious that the court case wasn't going to be successful... That wasn't the point of it.

     

     I don't see why others in this thread have issues with the timing - this is NOT the first time the issue has come up.  It's a perfect time to have the conversation again.  As if the timing takes away from the legitimacy of the issue.  Gimme a break.

      

    You know what's bush league?  Continuing to use a racist caricature as your logo.  

     

    I'm not indigenous, but if a sports team used a caricature of my race or culture, I'd be effing pissed.  Would anyone be ok with a caricature of another minority group as a sports team logo?  How about blacks? Or Jews?

     

    I love sports, and I love sports logos, but Chief Wahoo is an embarrassment of a logo, and Cleveland is an embarrassment of an organization for continuing to use it.

     

  5. What was last year's total? Because, let's just say that they had 5,000 last year. That's only a net increase of 500.

    1000 new STHs, top 5 in NHL, 90% renewal rate.

    Great.

    All of that sounds like spin to distract from the fact that they didn't mention the only number that actually matters. How many season ticket holders are there?

    They could spin it any way they want, but the fact remains, the team has no owner and the city is paying the bills. At this point, positive articles about season tickets, particularly one that avoids giving the real number, just seems disingenuous.
