He's already said that he's going to do it and the Wings equipment manager already ok'ed it. I'm not sure why a petition is necessary.

Personally, I think its gimmicky and stupid.

Plus, I'm sure a lot of the main people pushing so hard for him to wear it are the people from Commodore themselves to help promote their new Commodore 64 computer, and nerds who don't give a s*** about hockey or the Wings and just think it cool that there might be a player in some sport with a "Commodore 64" jersey.

Fans of the Commodore 64 computer? Don't you think he should be thinking more of Red Wings fans instead? I can guarantee you that the majority of Wings fans think its a gimmick and hope he doesn't choose it. Most of the people in support of the idea, as I mentioned before, are just fans of the idea of a player wearing "Commodore 64" and aren't Wings fans. Don't confuse the vocal minority with the majority. Also don't confuse all people in support of a "Commodore 64" sports jersey as being Wings fans, or even hockey fans.

I hope this is a joke.


Nope.

The Commodore computer company has already made public statements pushing for him to wear it and saying how ecstatic they would be and how it would be great for their company and brand awareness and the relaunch of the C64. They have a LOT to gain if he chooses it. Like millions in free advertising.

How much advertising potential do you think Mike Commodore really has? It's kind of dumb, yeah, but it's his choice and it's all in the name of fun. He can choose 00 for all I care.

I can go either way on it. Yeah, it's kind of fun and all, but at the same time the Red Wings jersey should be respected and pasting something cheesy and gimmicky on it doesn't excite me. But like I said, I won't be outraged if it does happen.

"During Robert Lang’s time in Detroit, he caused me anguish. Other times he brought me and my family great joy. Robert Lang occasionally coasts, and spends time searching for the best pane of glass to best view the reflection of his flowing mullet. Other times he is a strong-armed force with the puck. I never knew what to expect from Robert Lang. He is The Enigma. " - A2Y

I'd like to see it, personally. In truth, I don't see it as a gimmick- it's a fun play on words, like Tootoo wearing 22.

Fair enough,but I don't have any contact with the North America Wings fans except on the internet forums and on the LGW the majority of them are for or don't give a s*** about the number he's gonna wear.

it's a freaking number. He has worked hard his entire life to be where he is; he deserves to choose a number that he wishes. A number is personal preference; it doesn't always have to be some warm hearted soft story to go along with it. Would you rather he pick something ultra original such as his birth year? That has not been done before.

don't you remember "the great ketchup boom" of 2000 when steve heinze wore #57 for the sabres? :P

seriously though, i think he will wear it now mainly because of the charity pressure. he seems to have a good sense of humor as well so why not. that jersey will sell like hell if it happens.

and is there any evidence that any of those petitions have ever worked?

Well, he plays for one of the most popular hockey teams. One that is broadcast to millions on NBC and on other teams local broadcasts. I'm sure announcers would bring it up in their broadcasts regularly like they do with every other semi-interesting fact about a player.

Apparently Commodore is sticking with #22. Also, Ian White is going to don #18. Interesting.

@RooseBill: The new #RedWings will wear the following jersey numbers this season: @commie22 (22); White (18); Conklin (29), Conner (41) and Exelby (3).
