I guess it makes sense, especially if they want to 'rebrand' themselves. No different than the 'Minnesota' Wild or 'Florida' Panthers. I wonder how the uniforms are going to look.

So they think the people from the rest of the state are going to fill the seats?


NHL teams rely heavily on ticket sales.  I just don't see how this solves anything.

I read an interview a couple of months back where the new owner was talking about renaming the team with the Arizona moniker.  It wasn't so much about "rebranding" them as much as it was about making the Coyotes similar in name to the Arizona Diamondbacks and Arizona Cardinals.  Kind of a solidarity move, similar to how all the Pittsburgh teams have the same color scheme for their uniforms.  I actually think it's pretty cool.  A little state pride never hurt anyone.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Considering they don't even play in Phoenix this move makes sense

The new owners are actually trying to embrace the kind of hockey fans that live in the Phoenix area (Canucks, Oilers, Flames fans + loads of Wings and Hawks fans as well). This month they announced that they were the first place west of the Mississippi (state-side) to open a Tim Hortons. Yep, Jobing.com now has the only Tim Hortons in the entire West. 

 

Then came this

I assume they will reach out to Wings and Hawks fans somehow, soon.

That's too funny.  I see they really went all out on the bands. LOL  Might have been a good lineup 30-40 years ago.

 

I suppose they are trying to appeal to the senior sunbirds with money so it makes sense.

Technically, peyote is probably more accurate.

Give them 5 years they'll be changing their name again. Portland Lumbermen sound good?

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I actually think the name Coyotes is cool for the area. It fits.

And in the end, a bring of dung with a different label is still a brick of dung.

They'll have to change the name again; Seattle Coyotes doesn't make the cut.

I read somewhere that the jerseys are going to be the same with the addition of a shoulder patch that will be revealed their first exhibition game of next pre-season.

I like that move nothing wrong with showing regional pride. Also I think if the tax payer has to pay for a hockeyclub, they should have a say on how to name them.

 

What happens if the Coyotes are relocating in the future, would the new be allowed to the change the whole name not just Arizona?

Yeah, if they're relocated they can change the name to whatever they want.  Just like Colorado, Carolina, and Dallas did.
