2,000 people on an Island with approximately 570,000 population (and all I counted were Victoria, Nanaimo, Duncan, Parksville, Port Alberni, Courtenay and Campbell River...nevermind everything in between)....that doesn't sound like strong support to me.

that's not actually too bad considering that likely no reponses would've come from PA, CV, Parksville(maybe a couple) or CR....

I'd say pretty good support since it is going to be 2000 responses from different people likely

I totally disagree. It's a distinctive, West Coast name that is representative of where we live. Names like the Salsa are just plain stupid for teams in BC. As to the logo, it works. There is no way you could do much better with a salmon.

By the way, there is a very good lacross team called the Salmon Bellies and they aren't embarrassing anyone.

I think that fish looks a little too much like Charley the Tuna

cast my vote for yet another bad logo (don't get me started again on that crap down in Phoenix that's supposed to look like a meaner coyote....)

however, glad to now that minor league pro hockey returns to the NW. good for Victoria.

Lauri from Tacoma (the city where hockey goes to die)

hahah

Me and a few buddies were talking about this last night and we're not happy eithier. I mean, when they design a logo, they have to think about merchandising. In no way are they going to sell alot of Salmon Kings gear when the logo is gay.

I'm writing a letter into the Times Colonist along with some other people. Please join us and let someone know about your disapproval of this logo. Maybe if they receive enough feedback they'll change it.

I believe it is a play on the term "King Salmon" which is an American expression for what we refer to as Spring or Chinook Salmon.

My favourite has to be the Jacksonville Lizard Kings of the ECHL and their second logo. As far as bad the Lubbock Cotton Kings logo makes the Salmon Kings look brilliant by comparison and the Renfrew Creamery Kings?????

I know the OHL had the Kingston Canadiens, Frontenacs and Raiders - what about the Kingston Kings??????

Good idea. I think I'll write a letter to the TC as well.

Salmon Kings and that ridiculous logo are just not going to cut it.
