XL needs to be replaced at some point fairly soon also.
AEG was allowed to keep the status quo but even they have a conflict of interest, (Manchester)....
nobody I know of liked the rebrand mid-season, I'm glad MSG renewed the domain name, TBH.
The numbers tell and will continue to tell a much different story. The Rangers are not the right fit for the market. I do agree with you though that the re-brand to Whale was done hastily and probably could have used another logo, but the Whale brand is a much stronger brand overall and resonates with the market much more so than the Wolf Pack.
