AHL Rockford repeating event that due protests last season

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-pu...9677--nhl.html

Puck Daddy on "Los IceHogs Dos", a Latino themed event that drew a lot of protests last year.


MOD NOTE: Please keep discussion civil. Do not call out fan bases or posters. Focus on the facts. TIA.

*shivers*

Rockford, where team branding and taste go to die... apparently.

It's called publicity.

That said, I like last year's better, but dos (pun intended) are pretty sweet.

Rockford fans are enthusiastic, based upon the ones I have met in Milwaukee. I have never made the 93 mile trip to visit there.

Why couldn't have they scheduled the game versus San Antonio??

It's an inside joke with Wolves fans: we always get commercial bumpers of a mariachi band on the Riverwalk when we're in SA.

It's a bit racially insensitive, but not worthy of protests IMO. It's not really that different than the plethora of NBA teams doing the same thing, except they are a minor league team and feel the need to go a bit over the top with a whole new look for the game.

Because there wasn't *actually* backlash. Just an irked blogger or two.

You should go sometime. I've enjoyed going there in both their UHL and AHL days.
