Thanks for the email and sorry for the delay in responding. We do plan on aggressively going after the Atlanta market, primarily for weekend mini plans. Honestly, donít love the combo jersey idea- we were thinking more in terms of discount hotels and gasoline gift cards. I do like the idea of recognizing the Atlanta folks at the game.
Appreciate the kind words and input.
I agree with Cogen, the combo jersey isn't a really practical idea for the team.
It'd be cool though to see some folks buy a Thrashers and Predators jersey and cut them down the middle and sew them back together to form two jerseys though. Have one with a full Predators logo, the other with a full Thrashers patch.
Guessing they'll use Mapco Express (they are a sponsor) for the gas cards...
