    Went to the funeral of Bill Keckler (WSU alum) today and sat next to an acquaintance who knew a lot about marketing etc. Said he couldn't believe the name chosen and the fact that the owner of the franchise has had this long and has talked to local folks and still chose that name makes him very nervous about how the owner is going to develop the rest of the land he has. Said he wouldn't be surprised if we see a ferris wheel and or a carousel along the river bank.

    Should've narrowed down list to 3 or 5 names then let fans vote.

    LOL! Looks like that ship has sailed. Total f***tards.

    I can't wait to see what they do with Century II.

    40M on a library that sits empty all day was brilliant too.

    12,000+ have now signed the petition.

    Whether or not it will have much effect is hard to know.

    I must admit if they wanted a name that blows they succeeded.

    I'll just be calling them the AAA team. No merchandise for me. Won't affect my attendance. Although it should with the lack of community involvement shown by the organization.

    Welp, since merchandise with this crappy logo has already been produced and is available for sale, the team is committed. They can’t just yank all this merchandise off the shelves without risking financial pitfalls. Hopefully after the first season is over, they’ll seriously reconsider a name change. Until then, I’m just calling them the Wichita Wind.

    Yea, when my tall father swung his long arm into my small backside as a youngster. You could here the woooosh sound prior to impact.

    I have found this to be true: City workers that have to interface with a crap ton of lower-IQ citizens on a daily basis, have become zombified. City workers that DON'T have to interface with idiots all day are pretty intelligent and friendly.

    For example, the engineers that I have met and interfaced with are pretty solid down there.

    On the flip-side, there is a planner down there that is on the front line and has to interface with all the a-holes looking for a quick permit -- that guy is a zombie, and I get why. There's a-holes coming at him daily and bitching that they got caught trying to build a 3-story lean-to out of toothpicks without a permit. Then they get pissed he won't approve their permit, which puts them in a potential legal bind. THEY broke the rules, got caught, and now it's HIS fault their design isn't even in the stratosphere of code compliant. That'll turn ya into a zombie real quick.

    FWIW, once he figures out you aren't trying to cheat and you are doing it the right way, he loosens up and becomes a pretty cool dude. But you gotta get past that zombie defense shield to see there's still a pretty cool human in there.

    Apparently what it takes to "depolarize" our society nowadays is to come up with a dumbass sports team name.
