#2205865 Red Wings Sponsor?

Posted by One4TheWings on 01 September 2011 - 02:26 PM

Has anyone been out to the official detroitredwings.com site? They mention:

The Amway partnership marks the first time in the Wings’ 86-year history that the NHL organization will have a presenting sponsor, with the Amway logo seen almost as prominently as the Winged Wheel in all team advertising, branding and marketing materials.


They proceed to show the Winged Wheel with "presented by Amway" right under it. I hate seeing the Winged Wheel tarnished with a company logo under it. And it's not just because it's Amway. It just looks ridiculous. Maybe I'm being over sensitive?


#2190282 Babcock "pissed off" about Burns-to-SJ

It's still early to hit the panic button


This is the most overused statement in these forums. For god's sake people, you are fans of a legacy. The DRW are going to be fine. In Holland We Trust. Come on. So tired of the sky falling every time anything happens.

"Datsyuk chips one into the woods" "OH s***! HE'S LOST HIS MOJO. WE'RE DOOMED."

"Franzen sneezed." "OH NOEZ. FRANZEN HAS THE SUPERFLU THAT WILL KILL 80% OF THE TEAM."

Every year there is panic. Every year it turns out alright. If you lower your expectations of a cup every year, this team and it's talent will be a blast to watch.

Article just posted to Detroit Red Wings.com ... just the rumor report. But why would Detroit post that rumor if there wasn't more to it?


#2028448 Paul McCartney adds penguins sticker to guitar

Posted by One4TheWings on 23 August 2010 - 09:38 AM

You guys have missed the point entirely. He felt pressure from the fans to put the penguin on? Fine. But notice when he's holding his guitar properly, the Winged Wheel is displayed properly and the Penguin has fallen on it's face. I consider it a nice little backhand. Sure the logo is on there, but it's displayed improperly. Maybe it's even a penguin taking a dive... hmmmm. symbolism is big to some, perhaps we needed to look at the deeper meaning.

#2000645 Stanley Cup Ruined by Girlfriend

You guys are something else. Hockey < Loved One. It was a fantastic video. Funny. Amusing. I believe it was real. I also give the guy full props for restraint. He seemed to kind of laugh it off too. Which is ultimately what he should have done. It was brilliant that she knew exactly how to punk him. When all is said and done, if those two have a future he won't care that he missed 10 minutes of the finals, he'll have a million other things he cares about more.

This has been your "lets keep things in perspective" public service announcement...

and I think Brendan Shanahan reads LGW because he tweeted this video too.

This place is so easy to navigate through when there's no ads. :thumbup:

I guess we better enjoy it while it lasts.
