  • I know there's a lot of opposition to anything fish, but if you look at the Ryan Muraro 2011 Seattle Sockeyes mock-up (several posts prior to this), I love the colors and the sockeye looks badass. But again, the colors -- they are BOLD and AGGRESSIVE.

    Kraken would be an interesting name, but if you compare Muraro's reddish-orange, green, and blue Sockeyes kit mock-up to Josh Crookston's blue/green/white Kraken kit mock-up, I think you'll readily see that the latter looks incredibly tame in comparison.

    Can we have a bold and aggressive uniform without using red? Red is just so not PNW to me. All the teams we route against and hate wear red (49ers, Cardinals, Texas Rangers, Angels). If anything red is Anti-Pacific Northwest...

  • The Sockeye mock-up does look good, but agree with the too much red.

    Hard to get red into a team from the PNW. Maybe were just so used to blues, greens and greys.

    The SuperSonics wore red uniforms in the 90s -

    I'd like to see other colors being used.....I'm tried of everything pro sports being either green or blue. Another color mix would be nice.

  • I don't mind red. Why does everything in Seattle has to be blue or green? Those are kinda played out to me.

    Yeah I'd personally like to see the Action Green worked in a bit from the Seahawks/Sounders colors. Not a lot just enough as a statement of unity...

    alright this is just awesome. But knowing Seattle they wouldn't want this particular guy as the logo

    Yea, the expansion application is for the David Bonderman and Jerry Bruckheimer ownership group. It's not an open application, its specifically for that group. So I assume they'll be paying it once awarded the expansion franchise.

  • Has the Seattle group payed the 10 million expansion application fee yet? I would love to see the NHL in the Northwest, I would prefer Portland :P but I would be a fan for either city, I just wonder how committed they really are

  • I think they're 100% committed. They've been involved int he KeyArena renovation the whole time as well.

    Its not a coincidence that once the city approved the MOU for the Key renovation, the next day the NHL announced they can fill out the expansion team application.

    I think behind the scenes, this is all done and inevitable.

    Have there been expansion franchises that have played in other states and countries?

    I could see the Tacoma Dome, that holds 20k. But if you're the new ownership group, why rush it? Gotta lay the groundwork for your entire organizational structure, that can take years.

    Head coach, GM, assistants, scouts, internal offices like marketing to start promoting, advertising and selling season tix, etc.

    Anyway, no reason to rush this IMO. Let's do it right so we hit the ground running.

    So the people in the state of Washington and King County taxpayers will not have to pay for anything but tickets to watch games correct?

    Yep, and tens of millions for traffic mitigation.

    As much as I was rooting for Hansen, give Lieweke and the OVG group credit. They understood the political situation, came in and kicked some serious ass to get this done.

    Yep. IMHO CH was too nice, and the Seattle CC took advantage of that.
    Leiweke knew how to play the political game that’s why his plan succeeded.

  • If anyone needed another reason Not to go with the "Seattle Sockeyes":

    Davenport — a best-selling author based in Western Washington — has filed to trademark the name “Seattle Sockeyes,” as well as for another fictional football team she writes about, the “Seattle Steelheads.” She’s also written about a “Seattle Skookums” baseball team. But she has only filed to protect the name in her books — it won’t prevent a sports team from using the title.
