From this website we find this:


On Saturday, May 22, 2010, a U.S. federal trademark registration was filed for HAWKEYTOWN. This trademark is owned by Pekny, Michael D.


Pal, keep your ankles taped!

Wow, just wow! This isn't some small market like Florida or Carolina, this is Chicago! You'd think Chicago would have enough city ego and pride to think of their own thing, instead of copying Detroit. Sad, embarrassing, and pathetic if you ask me.

I wonder what Hawk fans are thinking.

You guys are just looking for something to whine about on the Hawks. I've never heard Hawkeytown used by a single Hawk fan or the organization. The Chicago Tribune has nothing to do with anything that matters related to the Hawks.

Well duh. They are our rivals, they won a Cup, sure we're upset… especially when their fanbase grasp a name eerily similar to ours. And put it on their championship video.

Sorry that bothers you. Stop chanting "Detroit sucks" when we aren't in town, and we'll look into getting over this.

LOL...I could tell you the fanbase will stop grasping a name eerily similar to yours, except we don't do that. Hard to stop doing something we never did, ya know?

As for Detroit sucks...nah that's gotta continue. It's too fun. You all should take that as a badge of honor anyway. I debate with a fellow Hawks fan at work about the Detroit sucks chant all the time. He takes it a bit too serious for what it is, as a few here seem to do. It's all harmless fun.

:thumbup:

Good to hear a Hawks fan say they don't like the name. Like I said in my earlier post, especially a city like yours, you don't need to copy anyone. Chicago is one of those cities that starts trends, doesn't have to follow them.

Well compare that to what Minnesota did with their "State of Hockey". Chicago should do something like that.

Ok, really? Why is it that when the Chciago Blackhawks won their first cup in 1050589350 years, they freak out and go crazy. Paint buildings the blackhawk colors, kill people and throw a blackhawk tshirt on them and.. steal other teams tradition. Are they going to start throwing a octopus that has a blackhawk mask on? I mean really.. They won ONE cup, get over yourself hawks.

"The world needs wannabes so let's get some more wannabes; and HEY! HEY! DO THAT BRAND NEW THING!!!"

It is stupid, let them do as they want, they won't win a cup for another fifty-thousand years so let em' try and rub it in. I mean hell our best players in the playoffs aren't going to (other) s***ty teams this year it cost them years of solid future building to get the payoff now, they won't be anything to worry about for a while now. Let them toot their own horns.

However, I do think that if St. Louis is as good on the ice as they are on paper they will be the divisional worry for us...just saying.

The Hawks really can't be like Detroit. They're not going to win the Cup again for some time.

And that's one more Stanley Cup that one team will win, or a city's fans will ever seen in a lifetime probably. I'm not denying that Chicago or their fans at least are mocking or being copycats to a degree, but to expect them to do nothing and sit on their hands after winning a championship is incredibly naive. Let them have some fun.

Not saying they are trying to be like Detroit, though the Bowman's obviously brought their fondness for Swedes over to Chicago.

I disagree with you on the cup thing. The Hawks are stacked with prospects and the core is set. While this upcoming season very well could be rough. In 2-3 years when these guys all come up it will be fun. There's a lot of top 4 defense and top 6 forward prsospects in the pipeline, and all of them will only need to fill bottom pair or 3rd or 4th line roles. The Hawks will be ridiculous in a few years IMO.

Go away and leave him alone. Every team has their share of dumbass fans. If you don't believe me, spend more time on this site.

Have to agree with this to an extent, though another mass exodus will cleary happen again due to Hossa and Campbell's overdone contracts.

Exactly what I was thinking. It's like the Blackhawks are our jealous little brothers.

Or like Drake_Marcus has put so eloquently...

"They are like the creepy ex-girlfriend that keeps stalking you".

PERFECT description for this pathetic bandwagon fan base. Truly just embarrassing themselves with this s***. :lol:

Will their fans still be considered bandwagoners if they still sell out this season? I mean realistically this is the worst their team will be for a while (on paper at least). So what happens if they still sell out?
