It's good that Chicago seems to (a) take itself to have commitments to indigenous nations and (b) take those commitments seriously. However, I'm still skeptical that it's right to keep the Black Hawks name.

Not sure what's funnier, a "we support the black community" message that can't bring itself to say black lives matter or the cartoon red man avatar wearing a cartoon headdress saying that headdresses are banned for being racist.

Like, seriously, the hawks org saw all the other teams doing the right thing and decided to kick the can for a few more years because their dumb gently caress reasons are "better" that the dumb gently caress reasons the other holdouts clung to for so long. Get hosed.

I have had people walk out on me before, but not... when I was being so charming.

The whistles in the exhibition games are really weird. At least in Toronto, when they stop play you hear a second whistle with what sounds like a really heavy attack delay. I'm hearing a few other audio glitches with a similar effect today and wondering if it's some audio cue for the crowd noise.

I also like that they still haven't figured out how to get the refs mics on the broadcast.

You could argue that the Rangers should change their name because they're named after a bad pun on the Texas Rangers which were/are a racist police force

All Chicago has to do is change the logo and maybe drop Black from their name

Its not that hard to go from racist to Bird Team

What’s more likely, them going to bird team as the Hawks, or keeping the name and changing their logo UH-60 for the element?

Baseball had similar audio weirdness the first couple of days and its mostly gone now.

I think I said this last time, but run a competition where Sauk kids get to submit new team names and logos. Give the Sauk and Meskwaki an ownership stake in the club.

As would I. I just love that a team jumped to immediately refute a tweet from a local reporter on the other side of the world.

That team is COVIDED up along with the rest of Russia.

Well, its not the NHL.... but the first announcement about anything official for a 2020-21 season.

https://theahl.com/ahl-moves-2020-21-start-date

quote:

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … American Hockey League President and CEO Scott Howson has announced a revised start date for the 2020-21 AHL season, as approved by the league’s Board of Governors during its 2020 Annual Meeting held today via conference call.

At the recommendation of the AHL’s Return to Play Task Force, the Board of Governors has approved moving the anticipated start of the 2020-21 regular season to December 4, 2020, due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis. The AHL will continue to work with its member clubs to monitor developments and local guidelines in all 31 league cities.

Further details regarding the 2020-21 American Hockey League schedule are still to be determined.

I wonder if they're basically just trying to punt it as far as they can and hope that a vaccine can be produced before then

Maybe they're just synchronizing it with NHL's tentative plan which currently says December 1 (which is optimistic as hell but also definitely the earliest it could humanly be for the NHL).
