Again....

The NEW YORK Jets & Giants Play in NEW JERSEY and no one says a thing. And the Jets entire history of 50 years comes down to Joe Namath's finger and no one even in Jersey is calling for them to change their name.

So why are we having this discussion about the NEW YORK Islanders changing their name when they will still be playing in NEW YORK?

It's total lunacy. The Brooklyn Arsenal is a great name actually...For some other franchsie. The Islander name should, and will, stay as is with a 3rd jersey being the only change at best.
