  1. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Actually, I personally would not let my kid sit on a mall Santa's lap, why would I pay to get a photo of my kids taken with some stranger. The whole Idea seems stupid not to mention creepy. But then again I have no intention of lying to my kids about Santa Clause either the same for the easter bunny or the tooth fairy.

    I didn't even get the idea as a kid. I was mostly just creeped out by some guy in a costume. And frankly, in the world, we live in today, I want to meet the parent who likes the Idea of a stranger in a fursuit running up to there kid, seems like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Personally, I would. I despise Nordy when they added him I was annoyed. If you were talking about the guy in the foam Viking suit then he just looks dumb, if you want something gets some guys dressed in actual Viking armor. I don't understand how a cartoony bear relates to the Twins, and honestly, I could care less about basketball, I find it only slightly less boring than soccer.

    Has Fan participation been an issue at UND? Since when? Sports with lower attendance have more to do with poor performance by the team rather than lack of a guy, girl or gender nonconforming Gender studies major running around the stands acting like a moron.

    From weak and dysfunctional leadership? Sure. From an overabundance of SJW snowflake students and the neo-Marxist professors that help to create them? Again I would agree with you. From a state legislature that keeps slashing the schools budget, again I would say yes. But From and not having some idiot in a fursuit running around making parents uncomfortable as their kid hugs some stranger in an animal costume? No, a lack of a costumed mascot has zero to do with the problems at UND.

    This guy said he was willing to be the mascot... but he has to stay 500 feet away from children. But hey the students all seem to think UND needs a furry running around at the games, we managed to do okay with one for the last 20+ years but whatever I guess.

    I'm not sure what you mean by hockey only fans, yes a large percentage of UND's fan base is primarily interested in Men's Hockey, but I think you are over exaggerating that into a "all the other sports can go f@ck themselves mentality, when its more of a lack of knowledge on the issue. granted this whole thread is moot because the nickname was changed a new logo was put in place, and we can certainly argue about whether the new branding and nickname is good or bad the Fighting Sioux Nickname is Retired and will not be coming back.

    Gross generalizations aside, Yes I think just about everyone would agree that we dodged a big bullet with what happened with the DAPL, and we are making progress, we have moved on from want are old nickname and logo back, to Hating the new nickname, to hating the new logo and now to hating the prospect of a new mascot, progress!
  9. For one last time

    Yea but as we all know that was done with a gun to the head of UND sports, Drop the nickname or sanctions.
  10. For one last time

    Much as I hate to admit it there is no way the Fighting Sioux nickname will ever come back officially outside of the Dakota legacy collection. Though Chinese bootlegs are still readily available if you are desperate for Fighting Sioux Gear and really unwilling to wear PC the Postal Hawk. We can talk till the cows come home about how the NCAA should apply the rules fairly to all schools regardless of size or status but we both know that is a pipe dream given how corrupt the NCAA is and that its primary concern is making money, it will always treat the larger wealthier institutions better than the smaller ones that bring in less money.
  11. College Hockey Expansion

    So I back on the topic of hockey, I wonder if anyone has looked at Eastern Washington. They have acha club teams and a Team the competes in British Columbia Inter-College Hockey Leauge, along with Simon Fraiser, While it doesn't look like the offer full rides, they do offer partial scholarships. I know Simon Fraser has been discussed, but Eastern Washington has on-campus facilities already that could work for practice and training, and the Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane is a good facility with seating for 10,000 and already hosts the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL, Eastern Washington could easily become a secondary tenant to the building. They could be a good school to help Push the University of Washington or Boise state into upgrading their club programs.

    I just hope to god you got it dry cleaned afterward....
  13. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    You would let your kids interact with a guy in a costume... not a good idea, just wait until they accidentally run into a furry and think he's a mascot.
  14. Students Spearhead Effort for Fighting Hawks Mascot

    Since when have UND fans needed an idiot dressed in a cartoon costume to get them to cheer on there team? But if they do end up making yet another mistake in this botched Odessy of rebranding then I humbly suggest that we name the new mascot "Postal the PC hawk", zer can be gender non conforming, queer, and disabled. The liberal news outlets will praise it for a week until they realize that the whole thing is a big joke.
