Arena Rafters & Banners

I didn't take pictures, but all of the Nets banners at Barclays Center are now in black and white instead of era-appropriate colors. And they took down the individual division and conference championship banners and gave them the same treatment they gave the Islanders: all division championships listed on one banner, and all conference championships on another.

Weird that they would have the majority of their fans dress in red then

 

It's orange because they wore their orange unis for the home opener.

I work for a Jr B level hockey team (Two levels below the Canadian Hockey League),  the London Nationals in the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League. We recently won our conference title and added some new retired number banners. 

 

We have many more championships won since 1950, just no banners made up.

Any thoughts on where the Cubs could put a new "banner"? 

 

Think theyll honestly put up another flag on the roof that no one can see?

There are already 3 retired number flags on each foul pole, so no room on one of those.  The center field score board flag space is already taken up by the standings flags.  If they don't add it to the roof flags, I could see them adding a flag pole by one of the new video boards.

This has always bugged me. Why do the Knicks championship banners use different logos from the time period they won but the Rangers use the same logo for all the years?

This is a bad answer, but my guess would be because the changes to the Rangers shield logo aren't THAT significant - to lay, non logo obsessed people anyway.   That maybe putting different NYR logos would look sloppy, rather than a nice nod to the time period.  Whereas the Knicks logos are different enough that it successfully shows the evolution of the logo and the team identity at the time.    Again, not a great answer but that makes sense to me.

Nope they are holding themselves to lakers standards. Only titles and retired numbers are going up for them it seems like.

Who "owns" the Taylor Swift banner? Lakers, Clippers, or Kings?

Did the Clippers ever hang their division championship banner?

 

They put them up in their practice facility.

AEG owns Staples Center. AEG owns the Kings. The Kings get the Taylor Swift banner.

After years of wondering why some of the Celtics banners have a solid green circle with NBA on it in white, and others have a green NBA on white in between the top and bottom of a green circle, the answer is found in the making of the 2008 title banner (3 minutes long)

For those wishing to skip watching, a full green circle means they won the title on the road, the white circle with the green top/bottom means they won it at the Garden. 

 

I lost the pic, but the Celts did hang division banners in green with white printing at one time, in the old building.

Not sure if covered but FWIW:

 

Nets came to Brooklyn changing all their banners to black / white. Then because of such a negative reaction from the NJ fans they changed it back to the original RWB. Now this season it's changed back to black / white. So, there's that.

I don't know how I feel about this? I mean, I guess it works? But, they're so drab.

I just find it bizarre to keep flip flopping between them. But we ARE the Nets so nothing should surprise me...

 

And yes, the RWB is superior. Should've kept it that way as a nod to the past. Has any other teams flip flopped between banners or is this a Nets thing only?

why do teams need to keep changing the colors of their old banner just to fit the current color scheme? They didn't play and win in those colors.

Not that I like the change of colors, but I do give them credit for at least keeping the era appropriate logos on the title banners and look on the retired jersey banners.
