Seems AT&T has taken over!  I was unable to locate any article announcing the change in sponsorship, but the website says "AT&T".  *whew*


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

From Amway to the Death Star...

Probably didn't want to put out a press release about it, given how much flak they got from the Amway release/sponsorship. Puck Daddy articles STILL refer to them as the "Detroit Red Wings Presented By Amway".

Much more respectable!

 

Never thought I'd say that about AT&T.

Still embarrassing.

I hate this presented by bulls***. Teams shouldn't be presented by companies, period but at least AT&T is better than Amway...

The contract must of expired on the 30th.  As this was apart of their draft reports

It's a step in the right direction; I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE AT&T, but if we have to be sponsored, better them than Amway.

Good riddance.

 

But you know what needed to be stopped from day 1?!?!?!

"(something) Light The Lamp Goal, scored by..."

Glad to no longer have the team associated with the pyramid scheme.

 

Though it could've been worse...St Louis is sponsored by Monsanto!

I would NOT want to partake from their training table, that's for sure. One of, if not the most evil companies in the world, IMHO.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

Being sponsored by someone gives us money.  Maybe they're just working their way through the phone book.  Next year, the Detroit Red Wings sponsored by Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

 

Be honest, guys, you're waiting for Hooters, right?

I think many many many DRW fans would be happy with hooters, our girlfriends not so much *g*

 

RedWingsDad there is something called tradition, a franchise especially a storied one shouldn't be sponsored/presented by companies, period.
