Please donít let this be the future of on-ice advertising in NHL (Photo)
 
Puck Daddy has an article and an insane photo about commercialization in hockey going to unsightly heights.

Below in the article is a photo of what Oulu Energy Arena in Finland will look like this season:.

I think the author properly dubbed this one as 'eye-gouging orgy of commercialization.

Hope the NHL never gets that desperate...

That's pretty bad.

Reclamation Project 07-29-2013 07:29 PM

I'd stop watching, easy as that. How can someone watch a game on that?

JoeCool16 07-29-2013 07:32 PM

I think I could play on that, but from TV or in the arena it'd be really, really hard to tell what was going on.

True, and I bet it would be very difficult for players to track the puck as well and play on. Brutal.

Ziggy Stardust 07-29-2013 07:38 PM

The NHL would never do that. This isn't a circus, unlike European hockey with their golden helmets and cheerleaders (and I'm not taking about ice girls). They celebrate individualism overseas and will stick an ad anywhere. It's sickening.

I could see a major car company like Ford one day sponsoring the league and seeing a logo on every jersey.

Wasn't that one of the reasons the Kings didn't use the home plate logo at center ice., because they felt the players would lose sight of the puck?

Good point. I've been wondering why the main logo isn't the center ice logo. The home plate logo has too much black.

KingKopitar11* 07-29-2013 08:35 PM

It'd be interesting if the kings switched the black and white colors for the ice making the shield like silver and the writing in black.

Just as all other advertisement, your brain just ignores it after a while. It's really not a big issue once you're watching an actual game and used to it. It's still hockey. But the clean look of NHL ice and jerseys is a great thing and I hope they keep it for as long as possible.

What's sickening is you taking this opportunity to post xenophobic rants about European hockey.

Sorry the truth hurts but I tell it like it is. That's why so many of these prima donnas end up returning to Europe, they can't cut it here because their stupid little tricks and antics don't fly around here.

HolyShot* 07-29-2013 09:01 PM

I can't imagine a big Mcdonalds arch right in the crease. I can't. I just can't.

backhander 07-29-2013 09:44 PM

it's bad enough the golden arches are on the practice jersey's. every time I see those.....:help:

onlyalad 07-29-2013 09:49 PM

I am expecting on ice projection for tv only. Think of the on glass behind the net projections but onthe ice. Pay by the minute, the period or for power plays. You wouldn't see them in the arena just on tv.

hmmm, and I thought it was because the (black on black) home plate logo sucks.

If they went with a gray/silver logo, they could put it on the ice - just like the chevy logo. And the gray/silver logo would look equally good on the black or white jerseys.

Aw screw it, just bring back the Gretzky jerseys already!

I thought they were homesick. Any player except Kovalchuk decided to return Europe at the prime of his career? Kovy wasn't a clown on the ice either, I certainly was a fan of his play. In fact I can't think of any European player who is known mainly for their tricks or antics like Shaw / Lapierre / Galiardi. In Kovy's case, imo it's a shame that he left the league, maybe if he signed a reasonable contract with Kings things would have worked out differently. No loss for the Kings though :D

More or less guys like Filatov, Zherdev, Radulov are the ones I was implying at. I have nothing but respect for a guy like Jagr who worked hard and earned the right to make his decisions purely on income, whereas these other floaters wanted an easy ride through the pros and couldn't cut it.

They can go plaster themselves in a ridiculous amount of ads and look like skating billboards.

The superimposed ads on the glass behind both nets are already enough. This is disgusting.

You don't see those at the games. And bring the previous girl back. I sat hypnotized for hours at my computer just at your avatar.

HolyShot* 07-29-2013 11:19 PM

The nhl will be like this in 6-8 years.

Just for you Ron.

And I meant on TV they're terrible. I believe MSG did it first.

Maybe I misunderstand something here, but unless I miss your point, I have a hard time believing that any country in Europe is more "indvidualistic" than the US. Not taking any sides here, cause that's besides the point, but as far as I see it, the European individualism would most likely be seen as "communism" in the US. We're catching up though. We'll get there someday. Today, not so much.

Just my opinion.

Breaking contracts, throwing tantrums here in order to earn bigger dollars at home where they are revered to as heroes form escaping from the oppressive clutches of the NHL is what I'm getting at, coupled with the stupid things they do like the Golden Helmet award for the leading scorer of the league. It's like asking for a target. Imagine seeing any pro league here doing something ridiculous like that.

King'sPawn 07-29-2013 11:40 PM

I honestly wouldn't care if they threw an ad or two on the ice, as well as an ad or two on the jersey.

They're not going to play hockey any different just because there's an extra ad in a less convenient place than we'd like. If it's between getting more sponsorship money and a healthy NHL, or having another full/half season lockout... I'd rather see ads on the ice than no ice at all.
