RobRoberts Posted May 7, 2003 Share Posted May 7, 2003 Two parts:Part One:If the team is sold as Disney is trying to do, do you anticipate new ownership changing the name from the current (see: boarderline rediculous) Mighty Ducks of Anaheim to something else... ahem... more appropriate? If so, what would be a good local name?Part Two:IF, if, if, if, if.... If YOU bought the team, would you change the name, logo, colours? If so, what to?Background:These comments from The New York Times got me wondering:"The possible sale of the team is not much more than a sideshow for the players. Sometimes, it almost seems they would rather have other owners.Kariya, who had a starring role in one of the Mighty Ducks movies, knows what it is like to constantly fight the identity of being conceived because of a film. Ducks are supposed to be a product of Disney synergy, not hockey perseverance and grit. One team employee remembered a recent trip to the Pond by Estevez. "He was fine, but his people were just over the top, wanting everything," said the employee, speaking on condition of anonymity. "One producer called up and said: 'Hey, Paul Kariya knows me; I worked with him on the movie. I'm sure he'll see me after the game.' Paul treats everybody the same. I think there is a feeling that we're all fluff because we come from Disney, and the players get tired of that." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
