Discussion in 'Orlando' started by haaamean, Sep 9, 2011.
The alternative now is an odd press conference in the middle of the playoffs.
No, they all had full, proper press conferences and the whole spiel, but the league took the opportunity to shout it at halftime of the Cup final, somewhat similar to what Garber did during halftime of this past ASG about the four more teams by 2020 story.
As a part of joining MLS, Phil Rawlies mentioned that the club crest would need to be re-done since the ownership for the trademark would now be property of MLS, rather than the club which the current logo is. As a part of the crest, Rawlies did say the club colors and name would remain the same. And they are still the Lions. Here are two ideas for a MLS crest.
I personally prefer Concept #1
Easily the second one. I want my lion to at least seem tough! First Lion looks friendly.
It looks familiar....
Actually I consider the Lions in Concept #1 as being Noble. Concept #2 portraits the Lions as being Fierce.
It is, but different in the pose and no crown.
Another part in it for me is the text style, and centering of the Crest. I find it to flow a bit better.
This is what it's going to be. Strike while the iron is hot and a lot of eyeballs are on the league.
That's why I've been saying it should be during the week leading up to the MLS Cup.
Neither option looks great. The first one looks less Mickey Mouse, but not by much.
It's going to be November 19 according to Ives
The Sentinel put their article on the front page today. It's not the headline, but it's there.
Phil Rawlins is touting "major announcements" (plural) today.
Today? Link or anything more substantial?
The hashtag is #OrlandoIsReady. I have some (hopeful) ideas, but nothing concrete.
Didn't catch the plural on that. Hope it's more than 1) MLS & 2) start 2015
Have they ever confirmed a team without mentioning when they will start playing?
No more bets Gentlemen..
Ahh, they're using the old Cheyenne Saloon at Church Street Station for the announcement.
There are still things open at CSS, and they close the street at that time every evening to enable bar hopping and the like. So this is perfect.
There is also an announcement on Monday at 3pm at the Orlando Health Heart Institute. This likely means Orlando Health will remain involved in the team beyond this season.
Just out of curiousity..What is your personal feeling about the last five years?
Big news coming to Orlando City Soccer next week
The last five years? A rollercoaster.
I mean you go back five years, you start with the vaporware Pachuca-sponsored USL franchise, and the Rowdies, who became the not-Rowdies (and Ralph's Mob kicking out Orlando-based early members). Then the Orlando announcement in early 2010 by Steve Donner, and Phil moving here and taking it over. It's been all up from the moment Phil took the effort over, and now it looks like we're finally here.
I just wish I could afford to go to the MLS Cup weekend and visit the Supporters' Council meeting.
If there ever was a time for the usual "That escalated quickly" pic..
