Arena Rafters & Banners

I don't believe we have photographic evidence of the revised 76er banners in the Wells Fargo Center...

 

Wells Fargo Center-Sixers retired numbers

 

... now we do.

I hate when teams change banners just to fit the current era. The banner should have the appropriate colors from when they won it! So many teams do this crap and it's annoying as hell.

I used to feel this way.  I used to think that the banner that's displayed should be the one that was raised at the time, which would usually have been whatever the then-current look was.

 

Now I appreciate the consistency, especially since a team like the Sixers would have one banner in black-red-gold and all the rest in basic RWB.

 

They really butchered it when they retired Barkley's number and put the then-current black/gold logo on it, even though it was in the traditional red-white color/font.

Nice. I know they got the number font wrong initially, but was there anything else?

Yes, look at the "R" s in the Niedermayer  banner compared to the R in the Brodeur banner ... and the other letters as well

Eagles SB52 banner spotted at NovaCare Complex

 

The design of the other banners matches what's at the Linc now, so I'm assuming this is what we'll see there on opening night

That’s probably the worst part of those terrible Super Bowl logos, that they’re memorialized forever on banners like that. I’d way rather see a plain “Super Bowl ____ Champions” or something of that ilk.

Wow - I feel completely opposite.  The consistency is great.  I would hate if the 5 Super Bowl banners that the Eagles are going to win in the next 5 years all had different logos.  

 

This looks terrible to me (except the last two, which show the Lombardi trophy prominently)

I think you misunderstood my point. I'm saying sticking an ugly logo on a banner memorializing a team's championship sullies the banner. Nothing to do with consistency.

Jeez, they could have at least ran an iron over that thing before they hung it.

Man, that thing is freakishly monstrous.  I guess they're assuming they're not going win enough Cups which might cause them to run out of room...

Strangely it doesn't look quite as big when its hanging way up in the rafters

 

Caps have also updated their Eastern Conf champs banner, no more flying eagle:

Divisional banners are so lame. Championship or nothing imo. 

 

Completely disagree.  A divisional-championship is still a championship, and while I understand that it's not the overall league championship, it's still an accomplishment.

 

At the end of the day, the banners aren't for the players or teams, they're for the fans.  Gives them an event to attend when they're raised, gives them something to look at and take pictures of, give us fodder for this thread, and is less boring than nothing.

Regular Season Western Conference Champion Nashville Predators.

Nothing like looking in the rafters and being reminded that you failed your high expectations in the playoffs.
