a book about this? Probably not destined to be a best-seller. The funny thing is, the Islanders’ “classic” logo is also campy and dated (the Y forms a hockey stick, genius!). The team needs rebranding but maybe they should hire a competent marketing firm this time.
Terrible franchise...

As bad as the G’aints have been they aren’t anywhere near the laughing stock status of the Isles. And the Isles have basically sucked since they won their Cups. Just a pathetic team all around. I wonder, has the “we want fish sticks” chant paid back the decades of “1940”?

You sound like the women that stand around at Superbowl parties talking about the teams' "outfits." NTTAWIT. We all enjoy sports in our own way.

New York is sort of cursed with shitty hockey franchises.
But the Isles are going to have...

This is pretty funny about the mascot debut.

Fans booed him at his debut, and one 10-year-old boy was quoted as saying, “I’d like to assassinate him. I think he’s stupid.”

I like the part about the kid kicking him in the ‘nads and the mascot changes into his civies and then goes and bullies the kid. Class organization from the top all the way down.

I was going to say that it likely wasn't an organizational decision to have the guy go threaten the kid, but Mike Milbury was the coach, so there is a good chance he was in on it.
"Here, use this shoe to beat that kid"

Wow, great asshole comment! Sports are a business. Not everyone is a rabid hockey fan so teams need to have a brand to be successful these days and the Islanders aren't the type of franchise that can just live on their former success. I grew up on Long Island and consider myself an Islanders' fan but that logo looks like something my 6 year old drew in art class.
Wow  
Mike in Long Beach : 12/7/2018 10:26 am : link
I didn't remember "Nyisles"

That's an amazing wrinkle haha. The poor bastard inside that costume every night. Oy.

I'm obviously biased as an Isles fan, but you're way off on this. Even people who dislike the Islanders think the logo is a good one.
And the tip of the 'i' in 'islanders' that crosses onto the island  
Mike in Long Beach : 12/7/2018 10:29 am : link
is the spot where the coliseum is on the island, too. Or so I've read.
When Nyisles

What happens when you put a man inside a pig costume, stuff him inside a Zamboni, and then fill the Zamboni with dry ice? Sounds like a high school science experiment, right? Well, no, actually it's an NHL science experiment. Namely, the Carolina franchises' contribution to the betterment of humanity through science. In an effort to come up with a kickin' mascot, the geniuses in the Hurricanes PR department devised the idea of a pig; a hog, a happy-go-lucky, mud-wallowing, sometimes talkative member of the class mammalia. Quick history lesson: In June 1995 a 25-million-gallon hog waste lagoon collapsed in Onslow County, NC, polluting the New River. Hurricanes Bertha and Fran tore through the state in 1996. Anyone sensing a pattern here?

The Hurricanes decided to unveil the mascot during a pre-season game against Detroit. With a "professional" hog caller present, the Zamboni wheeled out to center ice and opened, revealing only the pig's feet, shaking uncontrollably. Phil Madren, the 32-year-old, err, guinea pig the team hired to play the pig had suffered a seizure due to a lack of oxygen; a lack of oxygen caused by the dry ice. The Zamboni retreated from the ice, pig included, and an ambulance whisked Madren away to safety. The pig was AWOL for the home opener, but the Hurricanes promise that it will be back, still played by Madren, this time with a name. No word on how may children were permanently scarred by the incident.

That's right. The debut of Stormy the Hurricane pig was two unconscious, furry, twitching legs hanging out the back of a Zamboni. You can't make this shit up.


I had never heard the Carolina pig story before  
Mike from Ohio : 12/7/2018 10:45 am : link
Why did they pack the zamboni full of dry ice? Sounds like that 10 year old kid who wanted to assassinate Nyisles grew up and became a mascot serial killer.
