Hey NFM, you gonna give Matt a warning for belittling new members on his site? Lol.

Stating "Every Year" and Matt replying with "This" is hardly belittling. Matt could very well have just been re-emphasizing that the Wings do this every year.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Yeah probably so. But let's keep things in perspective here.

I don't remember this from last year, and before that I wasn't a member.

To be honest, I looked at the pic, went into my Malts file, didn't find one of his back, went into my Val file, checked out his back and then came back to find that if one doesn't know that they use a different font in the preseason that one is not an avid fan.

Please consider that some of us don't get the games televised nor are we close enough to civilization to attend games, and may not know these things.

Aside from which, I'm a chick. If a guy has his back to me, I'm not checking out his font.

What are you checking out then, the left numeral or the right numeral?

Wait that is font related as well so I guess I am incorrect. tongue.gif

I guess pre season is more important to some than others, never thought 2 pages of replies would come of this anyway thanks for the explanationS.

I'm going to file this one under I can't belive I never noticed it just like the little arrow beside the gas tank pic in cars who knew that told you what side the tank was on. Guess I'll need to rent more cars and watch more pre season hockey.

I wouldn't sweat it that much, this is nothing like goalie threads or the Samuelsson/Lilja Daily Bashing Thread of the Week. Unfortuantely in all different sports forums, every now and then you comes across Mr. Know it All posts and if you don't know anything and everything about trivia of your favorite team, you are stupid and you shouldn't ask. And that's a shame to me when the holier than thou attitude because chases people off into corners where people might just stick to Water Cooler or Other Sports or Between Periods or whatever else, since I want all members here to particpate in general discussion more.

No doubt that it isn't always a happy cheery place in here, but you got to cut some people some slack sometimes if they don't know something. This thread and your question is a good example unfortunately. Don't feel bad or embarassed to ask the question, I often wandered the same thing when seeing pre-season highlight clips and such. If somebody gives you attitude when it isn't necessary, just give them the finger.

Also, I have no idea what an e-penis is, but I think I might have nightmares about one trying to sleep tonight. scared.gif biggrin.gif

Speaking of fonts typefaces, does anybody know what the typeface is for the names during regular season? The typeface for the numbers? And finally the typeface for the Red Wings script?


Nobody knows do they?

No, the Detroit Red Wings are not changing the nameplate lettering on their jerseys. This is something we seem to go through every year around this time.

During the regular season and playoffs, each player has a custom made arched nameplate on his back. Obviously, something of that nature requires considerable time and effort something wasted on the dozens of guys who are only trying out in the preseason and won't actually make the team. So a simpler lettering process is put to use.





That's a sample of what they're using for the preseason. Everything will be back to normal once the regular season begins. Count on it

They're wearing hockey pants which look like overstuffed soaked diapers half the time. But whatever floats your boat...

Oh, my stomach hurts from laughing.

Ok, I can breathe now. That was funny.

EDIT due to alcohol-induced poor judgement. Apologies to any who were offended.

Oh, and Shoe- thanks for the tip on the arrow by the gas tank thing. I never noticed that either.

Ok, I can breathe now. I check out the helmets. Nothing is sexier than a guy with a rock-hard head.

Unless it's a guy in overstuffed shorts with stockings. Yeah, I check the legs too. Padding is sexy.

Oh no she ditn't!!!!

I just asked a buddy of mine, who letters the actual player's jerseys. Answer: pre-season is full block font, regular season is a form of plain block just for the Red Wings. Numbers are in full block.

I'm going to bump this in anticipation for tonight's first televised game of the pre-season because I have a feeling that it will probably be brought up.
