It was pretty strange how they handled this promotion. We were given voucher tickets when we first entered Staples and we couldn't redeem them until after the banner was raised. I was expecting them to have been on the back of the seats waiting for us.

And there is a huge McDonalds logo on the opposite side of the banner.

Bush-league. Pure bush-league. I'm putting some backing on it and framing it for the wall. So that McD logo is obliterated.

Since it appears that the Kings have basically sold their soul to McDonalds this season, I feel they should have put the McD logo on the back of the real banner with the "I'm lovin' it!" TM as well.

Might as well.

I would rather have it with a McDonalds logo on the back than not have it at all. Let's not forget it's a business and they need to make money somehow. The thing was free anyway.

...full disclosure, I didn't get one because I couldn't afford tickets.

I get it, its a business, and I don't care what they put on the playoff towels.

But it seems somewhat sacrilegious to do it on the banner.

Remember, they are doing all these giveaways to appease and win back the fans whose spirit they robbed during the lockout. To turn that "claim" around and then advertise on the giveaways seems kind of hypocritical to me.

Now I am wondering if I am going to see a McDonalds logo on the puck they are giving away on the first legends night.

lmao - seriously it's a fairly cheap little banner, nothing to go out of your way to get unless you are a obsessive collector. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm giving away mine

Anyway, the team store is selling a bigger replica of the banner...

It's not the real banner for Christ's sake and it cost you, me and everyone else NOTHING. Still, you have people on here who are dying to have one, logo and all, but apparently the Kings have slighted all of us once again.

Perhaps they should have hand-knitted the banners and had the entire team autograph the back of each one?

As for the way they handled it, you can not leave them on the backs of the seats or else you would have one guy on Ebay today selling 20 of these at $30 a pop. I thought it was handled well, especially considering that some giveaways are a "pick it up on the way out" which can take quite a long time due to lines...I'm sure the puck nights this year will be that way so nobody throws them on the ice.

I guess you missed the point of my post. Read it again more closely.

Do you have a link to it? I saw it yesterday during the game, I went back and the Team LA store doesn't have it listed. If it doesn't exist online anymore, if someone in the LA area happens to be at a Team LA store location and there are some in stock, I would gladly reimburse someone for it and pay for the shipping to Canada.

Also, there is a nice shirt on the Team LA store's website

http://teamlastore.com/content/los-a...nner-tee-black

However, it is only available up to a 2XL online. I need a 3XL, if someone happens to be down at the store and sees one let me know.

I had this problem in the playoffs last year with my rally towel. At 3 different games I had to track down one of the usher supervisors to get a new towel.

they were selling them at the game yesterday - didn't see the price. Team LA sent out an email yesterday showing it but now the link doesn't work probably sold out? I'm sure they'll get more...

They were $5.99. I knew I should have ordered it when I saw it. The jersey patches are available too for $22.99 I believe.

Team LA had small ones for around $5-8, medium-sized ones for $30, and large ones for over $100. The small one was a little bigger than the Mickey D's one and the medium sized one is about 1.5 x 2 feet.

I think there are people ahead of me in the request line, but if they've gotten theirs, I'm still looking for one.

I can be taken off the list. Had a friend at work who got one for me. It's fantastic! Love that they made it a giveaway. I really think people are overreacting to the McDonald's logo/sponsorship. It's on the back, you can't even see it. And again, it was free.
