the Red Wings new marketing slogan sucks beyond control.



they started a competion over there to post a new one, which is a cool idea except it'll never replace that terrible banner..



it must have taken literally two minutes to make that.



Why do we always have such terrible marketing?

people have signatures on this board with better art

Maybe one of us can come up with something better. I don't doubt that we could, actually.

I guarantee you can. My five year old drew a picture of a robot on a cardboard box yesterday that made more sense than the "fire on ice" effort. If you come up with one, email me at iwocpo@gmail.com and I'll post it. And, yes, it's a contest. Winner will have their banner displayed the entire season and I'll be forwarding a half-eaten block of cheese as additional reward.

I will never again complain about the marketing my job does...

until next week when I forget about all of this.

edit to add: it's still better than the NHL's marketing

Edited by vangvace, 16 July 2007 - 12:27 PM.

I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

looks like they are trying to promote their "pink" line of NHL merchandise.

I gotta laugh at how Pink the website is now laugh.gif

We should be renamed to the Detroit Pink Wings.

It's not THAT bad. Jesus people. What do you expect? It's not that easy to come up with a new slogan every single season. IMO "Fire on Ice" is a hell of alot better than some of the ones we have had in the past. Im not a big fan of this new one, but its not complete s*** or anything.

Fire on Ice leads to smoke on the water.
Not impressed, but I really couldn't care less.

Why are only half the teams in the league in the background? Haha, is the league shrinking this season?

"Fire On Ice" has so much potential. before I clicked the link, I was already thinking about what a cool marketing slogan it could be for the entire NHL.

and then I opened the thread and saw the graphic... eeek. sorry wings fans!
